Lions unveil new uniforms

The Lions are getting a new look.

At a ceremony in Detroit tonight, the Lions have unveiled new uniforms, with four jersey options: Blue for home games, white for away games, a silver “Color Rush” jersey and a throwback jersey similar to the jerseys the Lions wore in the 1930s.

The Lions will wear blue pants on the road and silver pants at home, with silver pants the same color as the silver jerseys on “Color Rush” games.

Lions President Rod Wood has been saying for months that the team would give itself a fresh new look, and had been working closely with Nike on the new designs.

    Most “Color Rush” uniforms are an abomination, but I like the silver and I’m not even a Lions fan.

    With a name like the Lions and unis like that., don’t blame me if I confuse them a middle school team

    Those are actually pretty sweet

    Serious improvement. The blue pants are awesome.

    New units, same old Lionesses

    The seamless design to the front is really sharp. But how can they boast that they’re so much lighter than the old design? Doesn’t that give the Lions an unfair advantage? Like when the Yankees wore cotton uniforms.

    The ’30s throwback uni is sweet. By far the best of the group. Nike could have stopped here and I would have been happy.

    I do like the new Blue/Silver uni quite a bit – but the team name on the sleeve is amateurish looking. The memorial logo on the opposite sleeve is way too big. The nouveau number font is meh, but I like how the numbers have just silver borders now and the black is gone.

    Something doesn’t look quite right about the white jersey / blue pant combo. Reminds me of a college team (U.Buffalo maybe?).

    Not crazy about the gray, but in the grand spectrum of Color Rush fails, this isn’t the worst I’ve seen.

    Mediocrity Blue and Substandard Silver! Perfect!

  9. walker1191 says: Apr 13, 2017 9:22 PM

    Lions wordmark on the sleeve is a needless gimmick that looks cheap.

  10. xenova1 says: Apr 13, 2017 9:24 PM

    Silver jerseys with silver pants? That will win them some games. The blue should be more prominent as it is a cool shade of blue.

  11. aliveguy24 says: Apr 13, 2017 9:37 PM

    Glad the black is gone. Only thing I don’t like is the Lions on the sleeve looks cheap and belongs on Saturday football

    Jaguars and Bucs fans know the Lions dodged a bullet

  13. bird2urmother says: Apr 13, 2017 9:40 PM

    I prefer their thanksgiving game jerseys. Their best jerseys by far.

  14. maiphatdong says: Apr 13, 2017 9:45 PM

    awesome, one picture, and no links, you guys are so lazy

  15. lionsandvikingsandbearsohmy says: Apr 13, 2017 9:49 PM

    Well that’s a delightful piece of non-crap that never once made me want to wretch. Almost..

  16. murphyslaw40 says: Apr 13, 2017 9:52 PM

    Nailed it.

  17. starchybunker says: Apr 13, 2017 9:52 PM

    I would prefer silver pants with the road jerseys, but overall an improved look. Like someone else said, if you have to have a color rush uniform this one could’ve been a lot worse…

  18. Kapodaco says: Apr 13, 2017 9:52 PM

    They’re pretty meh. Not nearly as bad as JAX/TB, but it’s not really an improvement. I kinda prefer their old uni’s.

  19. maiphatdong says: Apr 13, 2017 9:57 PM

    cant believe people show up for this

  20. seanx40 says: Apr 13, 2017 10:16 PM

    At least the rest of the country only has to see the new uniforms on Thanksgiving.

  21. illumination666 says: Apr 13, 2017 11:07 PM

    Not bad at all. Always been a huge fan of their Thanksgiving jerseys. Hopefully they never change that.

  22. skankmeat says: Apr 13, 2017 11:42 PM

    Seriously, they should be focusing on their on field product, not fashion.

  23. irishjugalo says: Apr 13, 2017 11:57 PM

    It’s like I teach my kids…focus on what’s on the outside and the rest will all come together for you.

    So are all the color rush uni’s going to become permanent for Thursday night games? I don’t care for most of them, but I did like the Bengals all-white with regular block numbers ala the Colts and 49ers.

  25. vikingdoode says: Apr 14, 2017 12:25 AM

    something i have always like but the 70’s look of the Lions were a classic look!

  26. senatorblutarsky says: Apr 14, 2017 12:39 AM

    It’s all part of a changing mindset.

  27. anonymousnevermindfishdeath says: Apr 14, 2017 1:24 AM

    Detroit’s throwback uniform is one of the best in the league – Be smart and go with that one.

  28. leef2020 says: Apr 14, 2017 1:42 AM

    That’s all that was left to thrust the Lions into the Super Bowl!

    Not sure I really like them – it looks like they are now ‘Honolulu blue and gray’, not silver.

    But, most importantly, this may finally erase the last visual vestige of the Millen era!

  29. heymister24 says: Apr 14, 2017 1:48 AM

    Someone should tell detroit that the uniform jerseys don’t fit, same as the Browns.

  30. dedxx says: Apr 14, 2017 2:03 AM

    I’ve never really been a fan of putting the name of the team or city on the uniform in BIG BLOCKY letters. The Cleveland uniforms are laughable. These aren’t quite as bad as the Browns, but do the players really need a unpleasant reminder of the sucky city they play in and the crappy team they play for every time they look in the mirror? If they forget what team they’re on they can just look at their sleeve, their pants, their jersey, and think about next year’s free agency.
    It’s funny that the new Lions jerseys are a big deal. I would worry more about that crap product they put on the field instead of slapping lipstick on a pig and thinking that there pretty uniforms will help them perform any better. Oh well, it should be fun playing the Detroit lint balls come color rush night. FEAR THE LINT! WE WILL PLUG UP YOUR DRYER AND KEEP YOUR CLOSE FROM DRYING PROPERLY…ROAR!

  31. witchrunner says: Apr 14, 2017 9:54 AM

    Looks to me like this is nothing but a diversion. That is, to detract the Lions’ fans from their perpetual complaint that the Lions, as a force in football, really sucks.

  32. smstonerock says: Apr 14, 2017 2:10 PM

    Lions made the playoffs last year. But keep it coming with the Lions are terrible mantra.

    It won’t be hard to confuse them at all. They play like a middle school team.

    Lions and Dallas Thanksgiving Day BS tradition needs to end. Spread the wealth!

  35. nflions20 says: Apr 14, 2017 7:52 PM

    Lions have made the playoffs 3 times in the last 6 years, but keep talking smack please, it just gives them more motivation.

    Lions invented the Thanksgiving game. It’s their game. Quit crying and go invent your own tradition instead of trying to steal someone else’s.

    @lunarpie you have no clue about the history of football if you actually believe that.
