Five teams made no uniform changes, in look or fabrication

pb-120403-nfl-uniforms-02.photoblog900 Getty Images

With Nike now on the NFL scene, only one team has made a major change to its standard uniform design.

So far.

For some of the other teams, the changes came from the way the jerseys are made.  But five teams have chosen to make no changes will be made to the appearance of the jerseys or the manner in which they are made.

“The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season,” Nike explains at its website.

A similar message appears for the Panthers (who nevertheless have added the “KEEP POUNDING” message to the inside of the jersey), the Falcons, the Eagles, and the Raiders,

Four other teams have incorporated the Nike technology without the “Flywire” in the neckline, including the Patriots, the Chiefs (who also have moved their numbers from the sleeves of the jerseys to the shoulders), the Steelers, the Texans.

So nine of the 32 teams have yet to fully embrace the supposedly revolutionary design of the new Nike jerseys.

    It’s nice to see the Green Bay Packers, Inc. take pride in their rich tradition as the most storied franchise in professional sports by leaving things be….

    So sell as many jerseys that you have for the 1st half of the season then change them and sell all over again. Smart business, screw the fan.

    Of course I’d never pay that much for a shirt anyway but that’s just me.

  3. buhbay1c says: Apr 4, 2012 1:47 PM

    As much as I dislike the packers, I give them props for keeping it old school. The Vikings need to ditch those hideous rags they wear and go back to the old timey jerseys.

  4. nflofficeadmin says: Apr 4, 2012 1:48 PM

    Chiefs uniforms look great. Slight changes to a classic uniform, but it looks great. Same goes for the Bears. (Both moving the numbers on the sides of the uniform to the shoulders.)

  5. trollhammer20 says: Apr 4, 2012 1:48 PM

    Only in the NFL is it considered “hip” and “cool” to wear the same stuff you wore 30 years ago.

    Because if you dug out those team-colored Zubas, the Members-Only Jacket, and the mirrored CHP-look Ray-Bans, you’d look totally awesome at the nightclub this Friday, am I right?

  6. shamburg says: Apr 4, 2012 1:49 PM

    There’s still hope with the 3rd alternate jerseys.

  7. cmdrsmooth says: Apr 4, 2012 1:49 PM

    It’s nice to see some teams embarrass the 21st Century. Looking forward to the new styles, for those not changing…ehh.

  8. nflfollower says: Apr 4, 2012 1:49 PM

    Hmm. I find myself not totally caring what the actual fabric is like on these jerseys.

  9. waltdawg says: Apr 4, 2012 1:49 PM

    HAIL SKINS! Our uniforms need no modification….But ANYTHING that can help with performance we will take.

    Did Nike add a speedy WR with good hands to the technology?

  10. dldove77 says: Apr 4, 2012 1:50 PM

    The big question, which I’d love to see any of these teams answer, is, “Why?” I’m completely impartial, I’d just like to know what they thought was better about the old fabrication. Pure curiosity.

  11. kdorset says: Apr 4, 2012 1:51 PM

    What kind of sick joke is it to hyperlink a Raiders text to a Chiefs jersey?

  12. andyreidisfat says: Apr 4, 2012 1:51 PM

    The eagles need to switch back to Kelly green but mix it with black instead of silver

  13. couldntthinkofaname says: Apr 4, 2012 1:52 PM

    One more reason to hate Nike.

  14. muckfodell says: Apr 4, 2012 1:52 PM

  15. damnyoulinelliot says: Apr 4, 2012 1:52 PM

    Too bad the Eagles didn’t go back to the yellow and blue jerseys from years past. They were ugly but quite impressive at the same time haha

    When your the Raiders and you already have the best uniform in all of sports,no need to make changes.Oh, and drop dead to anyone who has a negative comment.

  20. geniusesq says: Apr 4, 2012 1:56 PM

    The Redskins need to tweak more. Gold pants, move the numbers to the shoulders, and go with a more metallic gold.

    It’s 2012. And, we aren’t the old Redskins. Time to start a new legacy with RG3.

    The comments made about packers keeping it “old school” are funny….the way people say it…you would think they are still wearing Lombardi’s teams exact uniforms ..the ones they have are only afew years old technology…geez only thing that’s “old school” are the colors!

    Right, right, which is why they still play in leather helmets, sigh……

  24. coseybedaman says: Apr 4, 2012 2:00 PM

    Prime example of why people buy the $30 fake jerseys from China. This way when the NFL changes them every single year you just buy a new one for a few bucks. Its so funny, because if a player decides to change his number or name, the jersey company wants to hit him for millions due to the wasted jerseys they have in stock. Yet the fans can get shafted every year trying to keep up with the new jersey styles

  25. bearsstillsuck says: Apr 4, 2012 2:00 PM

    The packers will never change their uniforms.

  26. steelerhypocrite says: Apr 4, 2012 2:01 PM

    Let’s face it, no one cares about baseball much less the Yankees. It’s not that hard to buy championships in baseball since theirs no real salary cap.

  27. screenpass says: Apr 4, 2012 2:02 PM

    I guess in the case of the Raiders, you really can’t mess with perfection.

    The Browns uniform looks basically the same to me. I do wish we would go back to the bright white faceguards on the helmets.

  32. lbijake says: Apr 4, 2012 2:08 PM

    Nike Flywire is a thread, composed of Vectran, and developed by Nike, used in the upper of a shoe. The goal of Flywire is to minimize weight and maximize support. Shoes containing Flywire became available for consumer purchase in 2008.

    Gotta like the changes Nike made to the Saints jerseys this year…. Putting targets on the jerseys’ backs was highly appropriate…

  35. randomguy9999 says: Apr 4, 2012 2:09 PM

    I for one wish that they would get some really sharp modern designs going…. These baby step changes to the look don’t really amount to enough of an overall look change to be called new….

    There are a lot of modern designs out there that really give a fearsome look….i think it’d be cool…. But at the rate they are going it’ll be 20 years before they change the number font to something designed after 1980…. Yawn….

  36. tsr3000 says: Apr 4, 2012 2:09 PM

    Best unis? The Browns. Logos are for sissies.

  37. sbxxix says: Apr 4, 2012 2:10 PM

    Ok I understand tradition, but isn’t that the reason we have throw back uniforms? I think it’s time for teams to start making changes. The only people who don’t want changes are older generations who identify themselves with those old uniforms. I think today’s generation would love to get their own identity instead of continuing under someone else’s…

    On the other hand, I can also see where they’re coming from. For team’s like the Colts, Jets, Raiders and Packers it’s all about keeping tradition. It would be cool to see Grandpa rocking a Bart Star, dad rocking a Bret Favre and son rocking an Aaron Rodgers jersey where the only difference is the name and number.

    What I’m trying to say is: I understand both sides and agree with both and I think the best solution to this is to not make any changes to the teams which have never made any changes at all and for those who have make them make some changes. It’s a new era, wee need to see changes while also keeping tradition. I would say most fans would agree with this.

  38. fvckyourmother says: Apr 4, 2012 2:11 PM

    Yankees suck. Most overrated, overhyped franchise in sports history alongside the Cowgirls.

    And every year they win they outspend the team they play by 700 million on average.

  39. erod22 says: Apr 4, 2012 2:11 PM

    But Nike is itching to reveal the “alternate” jersies, which they hope fans will eventually pressure teams to make their standard uniforms.

    The young fans will love them, but they pick their nose and eat it, so they should be ignored altogether.

  40. lbijake says: Apr 4, 2012 2:12 PM

    The eagles do not have to change as per their owner, Jeffie Lurie, “They are the gold standard.” Be nice if they won a Super Bowl, or two, to go along with that appellation.

    New York is also the worst city I have ever been to. Over priced like no other, dirty, crime infested, with horrible streets you can’t even drive on, and full of pretentious aholes who think just by living in there they become more “cultured”, not like those redneck rubes everywhere else.

    Let me explain something to you real quick. You’re city sucks, and a guy working on a construction site in West Virginia making 25 thousand a year has a higher standard of living than a New Yorker making 100 thousand. So basically you are paying 75 thousand a year for the “privilege” of getting mugged. Good for you idiots, good for you, be proud.

  44. furedmccombs says: Apr 4, 2012 2:17 PM

    I find it a bit ridiculous that teams were unwilling to change the fabrication. I understand not changing the design. The new fabrication is lighter, and even the numbers stretch with motion…how could those two things be viewed as bad?

    Where did this guy say the new jerseys would make them play better?

    It is an interesting question. If the fabrication is supposed to improve perfomance (of the jersey, not the player), including minimizing shoulderpads coming out of the jersey, it would be interesting.

    Personally, it just sounds like another sanctimonious “tradition” stance for show (see: “stocks,” a.k.a. fan club membership certificate)

    But they’re not the only one, so again, I’d merely be mildly interested to hear what the the teams were thinking when they passed.

  47. theytukrjobs says: Apr 4, 2012 2:21 PM

    Yawn. But seriously I thought the new jerseys were supposed to somehow be superior, like they were lighter, tougher to grab, etc. Keeping the uni the same is no doubt quaint and cuter than heck but if you are putting your team at a disadvantage, however slight and insignificant it may be, then that is kind of stupid.

    Why not change the jersey and just keep all the colors and designs basically the same? Most of the teams that are changing are not making very big changes.

    cause the packers never bought a title pre salary cap old days.

    Learn history my friend. Learn history.

    The Yankees and Red Sox play by MLB rules. Doesn’t make them less “storied” because MLB doesn’t have a salary cap.

  75. bcgreg says: Apr 4, 2012 3:37 PM

    I’m disappointed that most of the teams remain unchanged. I think the Seahawks new uniforms look great. I wish ALL of the teams made subtle changes to their look.

    I think a lot of the players were looking forward to some change too. Speaking of the Packers, Jermichael Finley thought the new Seahawks uniform is “sick”. Think he’s disappointed that his uniform will be the same boring yellow and green one he’s been wearing?

    Look. I’m not for the week to week changes or the ugly-ass uniforms that Nike gives the Oregon Ducks (although the helmets that the Ducks wore in the Rose Bowl were awesome), but the hype on the “new uniform” changes made the reality disappointing. When you say that there will be uniform changes, fans think you mean that the LOOK will change not the fabrication of the “new” uniform. No one cares about changes you can’t see.

    What are you talking about? The Vikings jerseys have hardly changed ever. Whenever they wear a “throwback” uni, I can’t tell any difference from any other week.

    for those self loving ny fans, the Yankees don’t connect with as much as America as the packers do, they are you could say the 1% of pro sports and what pro sports fans hate, their the only team that has no budget in almost all of sports and live in the biggest city in the country, almost all nfl and mlb fans come from 100,000 people towns where the packers are from and love the fact the they haven’t given into new unis or a stadium. they run the packers like organization’s are suppose to be run not with money they generate from their own multi billion tv networks. they do it through scouting and cap management. i do agree that the yanks play by the rules of mlb but you cant say they havent tried and have bought championships, and as far as the packers doing the same before the nfl salary cap well there was no free agency so that doesnt apply.thepackers continuously put a good product on the field without over paying which normally drives tickets prices way to high for us “small town folk”. it basically comes down to alot people hate both the packers and the yankees but almost everyone respects the packers

    also football is americas real pastime

    go pack! 13 time world champions soon to be 14

    Still don’t know why the Titans didn’t do something to fix those things they wear. Look like they were designed in a kindergarten class project. And Pack fans- the Yankees and Canadiens called and relayed this message: scoreboard!

    If you’re the Packers why would you want to change anything? Its not like they need to spur jersey sales or anything like that.

    Yankees? Global Organization?
    WOW!!! What a great 11th grade marketing word for you to use today. You get a star on your forehead

    Here’s a question: WHO GIVES A F8CK????
    The vast majority of “the Globe” knows full well that the New York Yankees spent more $$ than any other team in the history of professional sports to lure the highest priced free agents to NYC in repeated attempts at PURCHASING WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS.
    From Ruth to Reggie Jackson, Gay-Rod to Mussina/Clemens and from Teixeira to Sabathia.
    Same BS formula. Sometimes it even worked. Whoopdefreakindoo!

    Baseball is out of date and for people of BASIC intelligence, the Patriots have the best damn uniforms in the league second only to their throwback uniforms, and as much as it pains me to say it, it is the NY Giants who are the most storied by virtue of the strength of their victories and level of excitement.

    *over Broncos 39-20
    over Bills 20-19 in Superbowl XXV (thrilling decision in waning seconds)
    over 18-0 Pats 17-14 (thrilling decision in waning seconds)
    over Pats, 21-17 (thrilling decision in waning seconds)

    *OK not so special on this one

    No one cares about the Packers and everyone knows the Yankees pay for their championships are as known for the ones their money FAILS TO BUY as the ones on which they get their money’s worth

  89. bbeaman78 says: Apr 4, 2012 5:13 PM

    I still think Nike did a good job after the fear they were going to drastically change the unis. I say leave the 9 teams to their preferences, but that is stupid not to let them revamp the design of the uniform itself. You can’t see the flywire at and all the players like the Nike gear. The cowboys and the bears unis are classic and Nike did an awesome job of honoring that, but updating it.

    Um please get the baseball talk out of here. Baseball sucks and is not America’s past time. Overpaid unathletic cry babies. How do you pay a guy 250 mil to stand 70% of the time? Waste. 162 games is ridiculous, as well.

    And most teams only changed material and the current material has only been around for maybe 20 years if that…..

    If you think the patriots have the best unis then you would know a thing or two about ‘basic’ intelligence.
    Also I’m beginning to think that packer fans are just as arrogant as Yankee fans. Wasn’t there about 30 years where they did jack? At least the yanks don’t shovel crap like buying those fraud shares. (and I hate the yanks)

    Apparently the new Eagles jerseys have active camouflage tied to banks of tiny cameras woven into the fabric. This way they can literally disappear down the stretch each year.

    The Browns’ uni looks essentially the same, just some minor subtle differences. The dimensions of the sleeve stripes look different. Things like that.

    I’d love to see them bring back the orange pants like we had during the Brian Sipe era.

  98. lvass76 says: Apr 4, 2012 6:33 PM

    Get rid of the monopolistic practice that is exclusive licensing. It is ridiculous to allow only one manufacturer of jerseys or one manufacturer of an NFL football video game. The slouches at EA Sports need competition. These companies are allowed to bend the consumer over backwards for fanhood.

  99. screechdaddy says: Apr 4, 2012 6:36 PM

    Florio, your disdain for the Seahawks is so blatant, you cannot even bring yourself to mention them by name in the opening paragraph of your article.

    One wonders how many of your ilk will change their tune when Seattle makes a run at the Super Bowl this year, thanks in part to parting ways with tired old technology and giving our players state-of-the-art gear to wear that can only enhance their performance on the field. Oh, but never mind any of that. Let’s whine about the aesthetics of color design for a team you never give even an inkling of respect to anyway.

    Sure, the design is a radical change, and will take some getting used to, but it’s clear most of the PLAYERS are excited about them, and those who don’t now play for Seattle probably are wishing they did, just like any young man who envies the cool kid in school who shows up with the hottest new sneaks that nobody else can get their mitts on.

    Here’s a proposal. If my Seahawks make it to the NFC Championship game this coming season, you agree to stop dissing them forever and move the NFC West to the TOP of your morning one-liners, instead of the bottom where you always have them. Deal?

    With the recent sale of the Dodgers at $2 billion, many believe the Yankees would sell for $~5.5 billion.

    See what I did there again? I added facts to my argument. You should try it sometime.

    PS With $5.5 billion you could buy the entire state of WI and have $5.96 billion left.

    Thou I “HATE”!!!!! the Raiders, I must admit that they have the best uniforms of any sports team ever. If you have never gone to a Raiders game and seen the Raiders play, and see those Silver & Black uniforms, you are missing a real treat. Having said that however, I would love to see the Raiders wear all Silver sometimes.

    Anyone else hate the Vikes and the 49′s jerseys? They look like turds

    As far as the changing of jerseys, and the price of them, I buy mine for China for dirt cheap, more so because the idea of buying a piece of clothing for the same price as I am going to spend on a crib for my soon to be born child is dumb period, whether its a jersey or a pair of shoes.

    Disappointed my Chiefs aren’t really changing anything up. Even their alternate jerseys (old Dallas Texans with virtually same colors) are snoozers. Tradition is only worth keeping if it’s a WINNING tradition. That’s why you see teams like the Packers, Steelers, 49ers, Giants, Patriots, & (gulp!) even the Raiders not significantly changing their uniforms often, if ever. Multiple Lombardi trophies will do that for you. Hunt & Pioli need to mix things up a little regarding the uni’s. Would love to see white helmets with red &/or yellow logos, or maybe some gray or black alternate jerseys thrown in there. Really enjoy some of the older/simpler NFL helmets: Cowboys with blue star, & Eagles with green wings on white helmets, Rams with white horns on blue helmets. So much for Nike being able to shake things up a bit (not counting Seattle)
