Jags Getting New Uniforms, Too

At a time when Lions fans are waiting for evidence of the new uniforms that their favorite team will be wearing in 2009, fans of another franchise named for a jungle cat also will soon be getting a new reason to plunk down good money for a new jersey.  Or two.  Or three.
The Jaguars will be getting new uniforms this year.
Here’s a description of the new duds, form Vic Ketchman of Jaguars.com:  “Long before last season began, I heard rumblings about [owner] Wayne Weaver wanting a cleanup and standardization of the uniform design.  The concern was that there were too many combinations and that the Jaguars were losing identity.  What are their true colors and which is their dominant color?  I think the new uniform design is going to define the team’s colors and provide distinct home and away combinations.”
The Jags currently have black helmets with a logo on each side, teal home jerseys, white road jerseys, and a black alternate jersey.  They also wear white pants and black pants interchangeably with the teal and white jerseys.

  1. The Jags should have Mike Tice run down the cat walk with the new uniforms. They should also put a bank roll of Benjamin’s in one of his hands, and Super Bowl tickets in the other.

  2. I can’t wait to see them either, i wonder how they’ll get los angeles on the helmet. are there any jaguars in LA? soon enough soon enough

  3. Just so you know, even though the lion is called the king of the jungle, they are actually inhabitants of the savannah. Less NFL Network and more Discovery Channel, Mike.

    This sounds like a quote directly from an Advertising or Public Relations agency. What a bunch of bull s**t.
    The problem isn’t the uniforms or the “identity”, the team has no QB, no Receivers and needs a coaching staff, other than that they’re in excellent shape.

  5. The Jags should let Offensive Line coach/Asst head coach/Meathead (ie Florio) to audition the new uniforms, kind of like when he was head coach of the Vikings, and as a motivational tool, he suited up in his old Vikings gear and ran out on their practice field at Winter Park. Only this time, as he walks out on the catwalk, they give him two props…..a gangster roll of Benjamin’s, and 2010 Super Bowl tickets for Miami.

  6. are they going to change their logo so as to not resemble the MGM grand as much?

  7. LOL!
    You missed this nugget from Doug from Jacksonville……….
    “I have to take a stand. Due to the hot dogs for the fans, which are a disgrace, I am canceling my season tickets. We are spending $7 per dog for a sickly, sad, lukewarm, dried-out, bunned dog while the press basks in the glory of steaming hot, I assume all-beef, franks on a succulent fresh bun. When we get the same dogs the press corps get, I will renew my season tickets.”
    With a fan base like that, how are they not moving to LA? I guess if you have to take a stand, it might as well be for something important.

    . . . it worked for the Bucs.
    The Jags have the worst uniforms in football.

  9. The Jags, Ravens and Bengals need to do away with the solid black pants & black socks combos. They seriously look like they’re wearing tights out there.

  10. Everyone that replied to this is a “hater”!!! Can’t wait till Jones-Drew runs those “new uniform’s” right through your defense. Bunch of cowards!!!

  11. pyr8fan – thank you for being such a driveby visitor to the Jaguars website so that you could look like an idiot by taking our running joke about press box hot dogs so seriously…
    And speaking of running jokes, how do the Pirates look this year?

  12. The hotdog comment is a long running joke in “Ask Vic”. It’s poking fun at all the people who never had and never will buy tickets because they’re just a bunch of whiney NCAA fans.
    Speaking of LA, can anyone name a team without dire stadium needs moving cities? Don’t hurt yourself, we know that “lol jags2LA” is the ignorant route.

  13. I can’t wait to see them either, i wonder how they’ll get los angeles on the helmet. are there any jaguars in LA? soon enough soon enough
    No, but there are cougars

  14. cutting their wardrobe in half? now they’re really going to complain that they have nothing to wear

  15. “The Jags have the worst uniforms in football. ”
    I don’t guess you’ve seen the Bills play then.

  16. Wow, what a bunch of haters. Haven’t you LA Lovers gotten over the fact your smoggy sh.it whole city can’t host an NFL Team. Anyways the Bengals have the worst uniforms. The new jags uniforms look sick!

    No its a toss up between the Bungals and the Browns.

  18. This is always a bad thing to do.
    Well run franchises don’t have to do this gimmick thing.
    Only teams that suck try it and changing uniforms and being a turncoat turns off fans.
    Some teams like the Packers, Bears, Colts, 49’ers, Lions and Steelers are the same as they were 50 years ago and are instantly recognizable.
    The weird Cowboy blue, the feminine Vikings girly curves, the Redskins helmet, Patriots helmet, the Ravens contortions of color are all changes for the worse.
    The new Jaguar design better be good enough to stick with for 25 years.

  19. That would be incorrect, the Seahawks have the worst unis, they’re hideous!

  20. Usually I cringe at the news of a team changing uniforms b/c I can’t remember the last time a team that changed unis for the better, unless of course they just switched back to older classix uniforms that had already worn in the past. Since the Jags were birthed out of the mid 90s, and their uniforms very much reflect that, there really is no tradition to maintain. In fact, their current uniforms and logo are amongst the worst in professional sports. They’d do well to completely change everything about their look; colors, logo, everything. This is one time where I’m not very concerned that it’s going to be worse than it already is. That would be pretty difficult to accomplish.

  21. Tampa Bay Buccs changed their uni in 1997 and went to their first Super Bowl a couple years later, Cards changed their uni in 2005 and they just went to their first Super Bowl. Hey, if you’re a team that hasn’t gone to a Super Bowl, change the uniform I guess.

  22. all ten of the jaguar’s fans found this article interesting. the pieces of plastic that cover up all the empty seats thought it sucked.

  23. Sorry, but Lions do not live in a jungle; they live on the great Savannah plains of Africa…

  24. Wow, you Jacksonville fans are sensitive. Fans in a loose term I guess since you had to cover seats due to not having the financial means to support your team.
    We all know hot dogs and LA are jokes. Bad thing is that tarps and felons are not.
    Now get back to your message board super fan.

  25. Another ploy to sell jerseys, plain and simple.
    But I do agree that there were simply too many variations. The white shirts and black pants looked sharp in my opinion.
    At least this gives Jaguar fans something to talk about this time of year instead of pondering who’ll be the next 1st round flop.
    And by the way, worst uni in the league is the Patsies, hands down. To say they look USFL is an insult to all the fine teams of the USFL.

  26. The worst uniforms belong to the Bills, Bengals, Vikings and Cardinals. Panthers and Ravens are close behind.
    Best is the Bears, hands down. Close would be the Steelers, Giants, Colts and Browns.

  27. Another thing – Jacksonville’s uniforms don’t need a change. They just need to stop wearing 15 different combos. The black pants need to go – they look ridiculous. (I say that for every NFL team – Ravens, are you listening?) Just lose the combos and they’ll be fine. Jersey’s got a nice, clean look – and wins points for not having the team name below the collar.

  28. There will be more teal in the uniform, that’s about all.
    The problem with the last design was that black and white were the main colors – which left them pretty much neutral.

  29. My guess is that this isn’t a big change but minor tweaking and just eliminating some of the combos. Maybe going to white pants home and away, teal jerseys at home, white jerseys away and one alternate jersey and just leaving it at that.

  30. The Jags logo looks a little too cartoonie, other than that, I don’t think they need much tweaking. The Vikings, on the other hand, is borderline pornographic. The Vikings logo looks like sperm trying to penetrate a grape.

  31. The team could’ve spent a lot less money to create a new look if they had just added some accessories instead of an entirely new uniform. Maybe some bangle bracelets and some jellies to go with those horrible 80s unis. IMO every pro sports team born out of the 80s/early 90s gets a free pass to change team colors: Panthers, Jags, Marlins, San Jose Sharks, Hornets, etc. Blecchh!!!

  32. Man, for a team that “sucks” and is headed to L.A. alot of you people that aren’t even fans of the Jags sure do have alot of non-sense to talk about. NFL fans never seize to amaze me.
