Nice write up Rodriggo. I pretty much agree with everything you wrote, but...am I the only one who likes Tampa's creamsicle uniform? It's so ugly it's nice.

The Eagles are a real head scratcher...The Randell Cunningham era unis are perfect for them. Why they rebranded, I have no idea. (http://netbrawl.com/uploads/eb8509fe1f06fa335c9d388c4053c7c9.jpg)

Both NY teams got it right by going for the throwback look. Both unis need no further adjustment.

The Raiders may have best in class. It's simple, and badass at the same time.

I'd like to see the Chargers go back to the Blue / Gold look of the Dan Fouts era. They should at least bust out a throwback for that. (http://www.netbrawl.com/uploads/eb7ac2f5e9d7910eb406ade64d53a6e7.jpg)

The Rams unis from the 60's are awesome (http://www.supersportscenter.com/images/product/icon/2124.jpg) or this from way back when: (http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/002/112/633/BobWaterfield_display_image.jpg?1334105809)

I don't mind the Titans...but yeah, bummer they're no longer the Oilers.

The Redskins really don't need to do much...Keep the Gold Pants, but just make them darker and less shiny, and same with the Burgundy pants and jersey. Maybe a few minor tweaks but nothing drastic really needs to be done.

The Raven have a terrible uniform. The all black looks like men in leotards. Horrible, and while I think purple is a cool color, it just doesn't mesh with black that well.

The Bills have a nice uniform now. I actually like the white helmet. Their throwback with the red buffalo is very nice. All they need to do is bring back the blue pants like they had in the OJ era. (http://www.rs-sportscollectibles.com/images/oj%20simpson%20bills%2008AP001.jpg)

The Patriots have a horrible uniform. It's seriously the leagues most boring. They need to definitely go back to a red jersey. Why did every team that had a lighter blue switch to navy blue? (Broncos, Chargers, Rams, Patriots)

The Broncos have a terrible uniform. They need to go back to the "D" helmets. I'd much rather "D" be associated with Denver and NOT Dallas. They also need to go back to the light blue. (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Y1ZkwH0yMGM/Su9Cg8X2_FI/AAAAAAAAB8g/fE-y8KP7MGU/s400/broncos+throwback.jpg)

The Chiefs unis are pretty good, but I worry the Redskins are starting to get too red and yellow just like them.

The Falcons from the 80's with the Red helmets and Red jerseys are cool. They new ones look too arena football, and I don't like them at all. Their throwbacks with the red helmet / black jersey is cool. (http://alt.coxnewsweb.com/cnishared/tools/shared/mediahub/02/21/22/slideshow_1222120_6.jpg)

The Saints need to make that throwback they've been wearing their permanent uniform. Much better than the current. They also need to drop the black pants (see Ravens). Or if they keep them, just add a Gold stripe down the middle. (http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ls375cwdVC1qlhqdro1_500.jpg) or (http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/000/569/885/72350220_display_image.jpg?1292475383)

The Seahawks need to go back to the Zorn look from teh 70's / 80's. That blue and green uni with grey pants was nice. The new ones are an eye sore. (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/18/NFC-Throwback-Uniform-SEA.PNG)

Pittsburg is OK...I'd like to see them wear the all white again for a throwback game (http://www.weirdwolf.net/FFP/images/1970/Pittsburgh70.gif)

Green Bay is nice too, I like the Green and Yellow. The only thing I'd try is a reverse, and bust out Green pants with a Yellow jersey (http://www.packersgreenjerseys.com/images/Green%20Bay%20Packers%20Jersey/Brett%20Favre%20Jersey/Green-Bay-Packers-4-Brett-Favre-Yellow-Premier-2011-Super-Bowl-XLV-NFL-Jersey.jpg)

Chicago is classic and nothing further needs to be done. The alt orange jerseys look weird, maybe drop those.

Cleveland is classic too...the brown / orange is so ugly that I love it. I'd like to see them in this more often though (http://cdn.bleacherreport.com/images_root/image_pictures/0586/8100/107453_crop_340x234.jpg)

Cincy has cool helmets but the rest is a disaster.

Who cares about the Panters or Jaguars. Yawn.

Miami has a classic look too. Nother really needs to be done there either.

Indy is fine, but yeah, reminds me still of the Baltimore Colts. Maybe a slight rebranding is needed?

The Vikings have cool colors, but their current unis suck. This would be a cool throwback for them (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4028/4648943090_26c509e131.jpg)

Yea, +1 on the Steelers uni's being the ugliest I've seen in a while.

Well, right next to the Eagles' yellow/blue jerseys we got to see a couple years ago.

You mean the Mighty Morphin Power Eagles?

Good break down of the uniforms Rodriggo, but I have to disagree about the Bills helmet. I think it was a great move to go back to the classic white helmet, but they should gone back to the classic solid red Buffalo as well.

Also the Patriots need to go back to Patriot Pat and the old uniforms.

Meh

The Browns uniforms are the pits.

The Seahawks uni's went from mystically depressing to Thunderdome

I like the Bills uni's, and think that they might have one of the best in football

Us apparently not wearing the gold/yellow/maze pants anymore is agonizing. I loved those. The white only looks good with a white top.

I used to like the Broncos uni's when they first started wearing them. They will look better with the orange tops.

I think the Bucs have the best uni's in all of football.

Roddriggo really illustrated some points I have.

I mean...these unis are ugly as hell...

nfl-vikings-peterson-adrian-28-stock-pic4.jpg

These look classy as hell

21e6y4j.jpg

The Eagles Kelly Green and Silver unis look bad ass...

p-449482-michael-vick-philadelphia-eagles-throwback-action-8x10-photo-cotg-8nfl-11910-40.jpg

Their regular unis look cartoonish and dumb, like they were desiged to look good in Madden.

Michael-Vick-Eagles1-247x300.jpg

The simpler the uniform looks, the better to me. Adding black around letters and numbers, nonsensical stripping and randomness everywhere just looks plain bad to me. White pants or gold pants doesn't matter to me and is really nitpicky to me; we stil have one of the better uniforms in the NFL regardless of what color the pants are. And is it precisely because they are simple, clean and have a history behind them.

People say "well we haven't won anything in these uniforms since the 1980s, it's time for a change". So? The Vikings haven't won anything every and they've changed their unis three times now and they still haven't won anything, and now they look ugly pretty much all the time unless they're playing in the Fran Tarkenton era unis.

Tradition is always a good thing. I get why a team like Denver changed their unis back in 1997. They were hideous when they first put them on a hideously outdated by the 90s, and they got a nice, streamlined, clean look. I'm happy their going back to the orange jerseys. But our unis? They look frakking awesome to me, especially compared to some of the other **** teams have to pay in.

I hope we don't get rid of the gold pants for this year (or for any year).

Potentially our away jersey is white on gold, which we've won sometimes in the past 2 years? Then we could wear gold pants at home at times.

I know I'm the only one, but I like the classic Browns uniforms. The combination of orange and brown is pretty unique and I love that the uniform is so incredibly simple.

Texans - Worst logo ever created in the history of eyeballs. Colors are workable but identity is not.

Man that is crazy talk...

The white pants look good with either the burgundy or white jersey. Yes, I do like the gold the best, but I like variety more. I remember watching that Patriots game last year and thinking, man we have some sweet jerseys...

I actually like them. There's something about the simplicity and contrast between the dull brown and the bright orange that I find appealing.

Seriously, that's the first thought that comes to mind. :ols:

Reportedly, the gold pants are back for 2012, at the cost of the burgundy pants option. Thoughts? I think we'll see a fair amount of White over Gold combos on the road, but our official away set is listed as White over White. Not my favorite look, but RGIII might make that opinion change. The all white Baylor set looked pretty swift.

I like them too. Regardless of what anyone else might think, that color combination is classic, like B&G, or green/yellow or red, white and blue. Football color combos, not some futuristic rollerball nonsense with silvers, metallic golds, pewters (pewter!!!), or black as a main color. Nope, just a good old traditional uni with none of the flashy garbage you see on other ones. Now if only the Browns didn't suck so much

That sucks. Why not just eliminate the white pants? then you can go Burg jerseys/gold pants, White Jersey/burg pants, White jersey/gold pants.

That's what I would've asked for. Maybe a neutral pant is required.

That would be my preference too. Chop the white pants, and for home games wear Burgundy / Gold, for away White / Burgundy. I like the White / Gold look too, so maybe like 2 road games a year bust that combo out, as well as throw in the alts now and then (hoping the 70th makes a comeback).

I have never liked the burgundy jersey/white pants combo. The White jersey/burgundy pants is the classic look. And the Burgundy Jersey/Gold Pants is just the gold (haha) standard IMO. Eliminating the burgundy pants just sounds wrong. I hope it is.

I'd just go Burg/Gold at home, White/Gold on the road. I wouldn't use the white pants or Burg pants. Not sure if we go White/White on the road, but White/Gold. I can see us going Burg/White sometimes at home, mixing in the Burg/Gold.

It's funny, but I didn't like the move to the gold pants with the burgundy jerseys. Now that white is back, and I've been looking at them side by side, I prefer the gold. Not that the whites are bad, but the gold pants just make the home uniforms so much more dynamic. I'm definitely on board with you guys about white over burgundy or gold for away, and burgundy over gold for home. I wish at the very least we'd get some continuity from year to year.

I like gold pants all the time. They just make the uniform more dynamic no matter what the jersey is at the moment.
