I don't think these are real, but they're awesome.

why were they created? Easy answer if they're real...


Nike


They're going to market as many merchandise options as possible. The possibility of NFL teams looking like the Oregon Ducks is very real.

If a true alternative uniform is to be worn by the 49ers (they never have) I wouldn't mind it.

My opinion is, if you're going to change the uniform for an alternate, might as well make it significant.

Did a little digging...

Without confirmation, I believe these are simply prototype helmet designs by HGI, Hydro Graphics Inc. They have a partnership with Nike and Riddell so we shall see...

They do virtually all of the flashy alternative helmets the college teams wear.

They do the new Seahawks helmets and did throwbacks for the Giants and Redskins. They also did the hardhats for the 49ers new stadium ground-breaking in April

So something new might actually happen.

I hate the gold face mask but with the right uniform I dont think it would look too bad.

Yeah...I don't think we need alternates.

"Need???" Of course not. But I'm pretty sure every team wears them, except the 49ers. So, if it happened, it wouldn't be shocking.

I'm not talking about a regularly worn alternate, or regularly mish-mashing combinations. I just mean an alternate that is worn one game a year.

I'm not in favor of those alternate unis, but they are better than some for sure. They are mainly created for marketing/revenue purposes but I don't understand teams doing this in unfashionable ways, especially those FUGLY old Jets and Broncos unis. Nightmares! I've never seen any fan with one of those on.
