NFL Uniform rankings. Guess who’s last

Just about the only way they’ll entice me to buy something with their current horrendous logo on it (to which I hope they say: Challenge Accepted!).

Really. 

“Here’s an idea for a new logo! Ready? We’ll write the name of the team in italicized block letters like before! Shorten the height of the “J” so people will know we changed it around a little. Instead of the NY over it we’ll write NEW YORK in smaller letters above it. Oh and of course an icon of a football partly covering team name, so people know what sport we’re playing when the product on the field calls that into question, even though it’s doubly redundant since the green background area is (sort of) football shaped in the first place.”

They really couldn’t find a creative graphic artist in a metro area that has like 15 million people? Nah, Nike will come up with something for us: a flat triangle (which we’ll put on the uniform but not on the logo anyway).

It’s not like there was some uphill battle making the team’s name look “tough” (which they instead weakly tried to accomplish by being 10-20 years late on their black uniform thing for the alternate). Cardinals, ravens, dolphins, saints — these nonaggressive/unimposing (if not outright wimpy) things provide a lot less to work with than the jets who can go with a freaking war machine of sorts. A fighter jet with an NY on/below it, with a distinctive font (even the existing font is so basic, but I could get past that if it was part of a logo instead of basic block lettering effectively being the logo).

Or even just something creative that draws upon pride in being in (ok, near) the biggest metropolis in the country. Or come up with a more distinct styling to the letters that really makes it their own: the unique NY logos used by the Yankees, Mets, and Giants; the 49ers’ SF logo; KC putting theirs on an arrowhead. Even the Rams made a freaking effort, though it’s awful and unlike “NY” that has only one association, LA is also the abbreviation for Louisiana, and frankly I just see the word “Laaaaa!” myself lol. I liked their basic rams horns one. Not my favorite, but it was instantly identifiable and it was theirs. At least the new one is an attempt at an actual logo/icon; imagine if it was just a rounded football-ish shape that plainly said LOS ANGELES RAMS on it. That’s the Jets’ logo.

It’s so lazy and uninspiring - after making such a big deal about the secret unveiling for so long - that yes the only thing that will make it not-awful (or less awful) is associating it with winning superbowls.

Explain to me how any of these 3 past-used ones are any worse, particularly for the sides of the helmet.

And no I'm not in love with any of them either. Truth is the 78-97 logo is still better,

or if they didn't want to go back that font they could have just made a hybrid of that with the recent font, with or without their color shade change.

It's ridiculous that the JetNation logo is better than the actual team's logo.

 

And this lack of inspiration in the logo carried over to the lameness of the uniform itself. If this is all they were going to do, then just change the color a bit and leave the rest of it as it was. Maybe inverse the helmet if they wanted to do that green chrome thing so badly.

Not feeling the outrage.

Any comment or discussion with which you disagree with isn’t outrage. I reserve my outrage for things related to losing football games. 

But news flash: the 98-18 one was weak, too. We were just used to it is all, plus it was throwback to the only SB season. The only part that 2019 improved from an already lame logo is now the overall shape is more football-shaped than before.

As logos go, it’s awful. As far as football as entertainment, the logo is unimportant. These statements are not contradictory.

That had to be an interested meeting. Somebody obviously looked at the green highlighter pen and thought” damn, that’s nice!” 

The human eye is more sensitive to that color than any other (for those without color blindness, presumably). That’s why highlighters that color are so effective, and why there have been many conversions of things to that color over the years, from certain road signs to fire engines to tennis balls. 

Based on that, I wonder what has greater effect on those Seahawk uniforms, if the affect is unequal at all: is it of greater/faster help to Seattle’s QB diagnosing his own receivers, or opposing QBs diagnosing the coverage.

My instinct says the latter - again, if any disparity at all is significant - since my guess is it doesn’t provide greater alertness to open receivers; rather where they are without any enhanced information about whether or not it’s worth throwing to them. However it would provide opposing QBs an easier/faster diagnosis of individual DBs or concentration of defenders in general that they might have overlooked a little longer while first and foremost focusing on their own receivers. But it’s hard to say since Seattle hardly wears these enough to analyze while accounting for other factors, like general weather conditions that affect playcalling, surrounding wall-color contrast, or even daylight vs nighttime; also Wilson is a star QB not a baseline/average QB so he’s the only QB on offense getting analyzed. 

I think it’s interesting, though.
