I love new uniforms . . .

I suck at links, etc. so just head over to NFL.com and then to the Falcons site and you'll see the new logo.

I really like them. But my Patriots still have the better looking one :)

What I really want is The Falconer from SNL to be their offical human mascot... Forget Peerless Price sign up Will Forte

Some of us are just too stupid to learn, I mean live ;-)

I should have thought of that, but it was late and . . .

Thanks for the tip Chris!

Edit: Of course, I won't be changing the slightly less new, still menacing bird in my sig, but I get excited about cool new unis, be they for my beloved Seahawks or anyone else.

I still say they should go back to the old red jerseys of the Steve Bartkowski days.

So who's next? In recent years we have seen many of the most horrible NFL jerseys/helmets (Denver, Tampa Bay) get replaced, and many of the bad ones are "old school" (Cleveland, and I'm a Packer fan, but I still think the "G" is kind of dumb), so are there any bad logos/helmets/jerseys left?

Edit: Maybe the Dolphins?

HEY! Touch the "G" and die...well not literally...but still. They've made several uniform changes over the years, but they've been relatively subtle. An extra stripe here or there...but you can't touch the "G"!

i agree. except for changing the facemask from grey to green in 1980, the helmet has been the same since 1961 when teams started puting logos on the helmets...

ain't broke, don't fix it...



I think there are crocs in the sewers. Great big honking ones...

I didn't actually say they should change it. What I said was that of the ones that kind of suck (the Browns, and yes, the Packers) they are old-school, so they likely won't be changed anytime soon. So what does that leave? Are there any crappy logos left?

I clicked on this thread in total fear that they changed what I consider one of the coolest logos in sport and which I only recently found out dates back to 1966. Although it didn't look nearly so good on red, it must have been one of the most bad-ass logos of its day.

I think they've done a pretty good job of updating it without taking away from the sleekness and sharpness of the original design.

Certain old logos will never change drastically; the Montreal Club d'Hockey Canadien and the bleu, blanc, et rouge, Green Bay's 'G' and green and yellow, and the Yankees' NY in navy and white, are all brands in and of themselves. You try not to tamper with that kind of brand recognition

But it's nice to see some of the uglier logos falling by the wayside, like the Broncos, the Pats, and the Canucks, who must have the record for worst uniform history in any sport anywhere.

And we shouldn't complain about frequently changing uniforms--look at European Football. Those guys change uni designs from game to game, I swear. And the most prominent thing on their uniforms are the corporate logos. Things could be faaar worse here.

Vancouvers' "V for victory" rhymed with ass big time...

the only logos that comes close to needing an "update" are the Dolphins, and cards helmets, but they are good as is.

most other logos are updated, or are good already.

The Pats hiking minuteman is gone,
The big Denver D is gone
The gay bucs pirate is gone
The houston oil rig is gone
The Baltimore B is gone(i liked it though...)
and it's still up in the air (to me at least because the local media implies that Snyder is changing to the throwback) if the Skins are going back to the Spear & Feather or sticking with the Indian Head & Un-tucked Feather

The Cardinals are supposedly going to update their uniforms when thye move into their new stadium in 2005. They are keeping the Cardinal logo and name, however, because Bill Bidwell refuses to change it.

Proving that Bill Bidwell still remains the biggest moron of all the NFL owners. Art Modell is just a weasel, Bidwell is truly a moron. Bud Adams wised up, why doesn't Bidwell? There are so many cool things in the desert you could use as a mascot, and he refuses to update.

There's nothing wrong with Cardinals per se, but how many of them live in Arizona?? Just my $0.02.

That's assuming it actually rises to "mediocre". I'm just waiting for someone to strangle Bidwell with his dumbass bow tie.

I seriously believe that if Mizzou met the Rams in Columbia this week it would be a close game. And it might go to the college kids. The Rams might have more pure, tested talent across the field, but at least the Tigers give a damn.
