  1. Looking forward to Darnold Vs. Allen / Rosen 2x per year. Exciting for the division for many years to come.
  2. Yes. The 80's wordmark is far superior to what they decided to put on the new helmet (as much as I like the return to the green helmet). A few mock-ups were posted here from reddit after the new unis were released with this concept - new Jets text with jet. It looked really sharp. Too bad. Not happening.
  3. This is a great idea and could have made the helmet logo palatable.
  4. They are both centered relative to the oval. The space created between the "New York" and the "J" just doesn't look very good.
  5. This doesn't include the 49ers who went to black for a little while and then dropped it (I think). If the black merch fails to "take flight," will it remain in the color scheme in five years?
  6. Just got my new Jets merch, and I'm loving it! It's even got the smallest touch of "Stealth Black" mixed in. Also like that it's made right here in the USA.
  7. If confirmed, it's Stealth Black uniforms for the first outing in the new gear.
  8. Love this. I like how it incorporates the current font with the abstract jet. Perfectly completes the rest of the uniform. Miss opportunity and 1000x better than the huge football.
  9. Some of your work is done as "Spotlight White" is already the main background color Since "Stealth Black" can only be worn 3x per year, limit that color on the site and focus on "Gotham Green!"
  10. Well, they rehashed a previous uniform, so I guess I did.
  11. Yep. Does the NFL five year design change rule also apply to minor "tweaks" ? If not, the braintrust should be all over this.
  12. Something akin to this concept must have been brought forward and then vetoed...shame as it would have been the cherry on top. Does anyone actively like the huge football on the helmet now?
  13. This really works. A simple change that helps to bring the look together. It's far better than the oversized football on the helmet now, goes with the inspiration for the rest of the uniform, and actually features a reference to the object that the team is named after.
  14. Pains me to say it, as I wanted new uniforms, but the 2018 uniforms were much better. Tweaks to the old uniform that could have made it even better: - swap out the hunter green for the original Kelly Green - change the oval to back to the football shape and place it at a slight angle like the originals - get rid of the "NY" and mini football and put in the 80s wordmark in the green "football" to incorporate the "jet imagery" and to create an "amalgam" between generations, since they seem to want to do that.
  15. This concept would have been my preference and they were so close, but they couldn't make themselves use the 80's wordmark (it works nicely in the oval here). Is it true that Jets' ownership paid to have a custom typeface designed back when they bought the team in the late 90's? If this is so, perhaps they felt they had to get value from that rather than use the 80's wordmark?? Yeah, I know lots of folks don't like this direction, but the new unis harken back to this era anyway.
  16. Pros: - Green helmet - Lighter green Cons: - Helmet logo - shoulder slashes - "New York" over the numbers - black outlines -black uniforms This uniform feels like design by committee. The black uniforms play like a gimmick. The helmet wordmark is by far the biggest letdown. It's a true money grab--change for the sake of change. I can forgive them that, but they can still make money and put out a great design. That didn't happen here. This feels like a missed opportunity. I'll get used to it, and it's not important anyway.
  17. How could they nail the helmet color like that and totally whiff on the logo?
  18. So pleased that the helmet is metallic green. But they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with that helmet logo.
  19. This is how it goes, and also agree with a previous poster who mentioned that the designers often move away from the logic of their original vision after back and forth with a conflicted client as watered-down iterations come down the pipe. Often, the result of this capitulation is a Frankenstein concept to appease different factions of an organization. This uniform can be marketed as an "amalgam" of the best of previous Jets uniforms, but that logo on that helmet strikes me as a sign of an unfortunate compromise.
  20. The green helmet with the metallic glow is a really good look, though. I bet they will do an 80's wordmark for a throwback the same way the Giants have done.
  21. It seems like an odd choice to essentially go back to the 90's uniform and increase the angular lines and then incorporate a curved wordmark rather than just go the whole way and use the 90's wordmark. As with anything, it will become normal with time, but can you say that the 80s/90s wordmark wouldn't go better with the theme of the rest of this uniform?
  22. This was my thinking, although the curve may not be apparent in the angle form the video. I can't unsee the "line" above the wordmark though although it is possible that it is a physical indentation in the speedflex helmet. If the leak is the final iteration, I'm disappointed in the choice of helmet logo and would have preferred the sleek wedge or 80's wordmark (dare to dream) to evoke speed.
  23. Here is the helmet from the Jets teaser last month compared to the leak. Both look to have a large wordmark. Are they the same?
  24. Agreed. The best thing about these in my book is the metallic green color of the helmet. Second is the lighter shade of green. If anything, the 80's angular wordmark would pair better with this look. The "curved?" Jets script on the Helmets...I'll have to get used to it. It would have been interesting just to see the "wedge" up there - very minimal, but I guess it wasn't in the cards. Still, love the move to the Green helmet.
  25. They did away with the top of the "J" protruding over the "ETS" from the original logo and carried through the 80's wordmark. This is more uniform with their font, but make the name look squat. The "New York" is centered, but there is a strange negative space created with the "J" that makes it look off-center. The one thing I like about this is that they returned the shape to more of a football shape, not an oval. Still, I find this to be boring, nondescript and uninspired. However, can there be any doubt that this is real? The Nike meeting video shows the same updated logo as the cap (alb
