Default Why are teams changing uniforms so much?

Dolphins and now Jags are changing them again and they look really generic.

Not to mention both of their away jerseys look like color rush.

Maybe itís just me, but teams should pick something and stick with it.

Baseball has been doing that lately a lot as well. Thankfully, for the most part, the Packers are the same they've been since I started following them in the late 80s. Kind of like the Reds (I live in Reds territory), when there's so much history behind the team and the uniform, they're a bit more resistant to change.


Although, I do have to say, I'm glad the Jags went back to the solid color helmet. That fade from gold to flat black was terrible.

Quite the opposite, makes using 4 year old player worn jerseys from the rookie premier a bit more glaring

Patriots changed theirs and they won Superbowls, broncos changed theirs and won Superbowls, bucs changed theirs and won a SB, Seahawks changed theirs and won a SB.... Browns still have basically the same uniform forever and haven't won squat.

No idea on why the Titans or Dolphins changed their uni's but the Jaguars needed changing because the one they had the past few years was AWFUL and made for ridiculous color rush uniforms.

Why even have a so-called “uniform”? It’s so old fashioned. Every Tuesday, each team should announce a completely different outfit for the upcoming weekend and sell the new gear all week. And try to incorporate as much red as possible to appeal to chicks

Browns need a logo on their helmet or something. Their uniforms and helmets are so ugly.

The Titans are celebrating their 20th season in Tennessee. I think they feel they are a team on the rise and a little rebranding would energize the franchise and fan base.

That design on the helmet looks like a couple of grandma's sag bags.

(Browns Executive reads this statement)

So that's why we haven't won! Everyone kept saying it was a talent issue, coaching issue, or GM issue. I knew they were wrong!

(picks up the phone)

"Hey, Nike? Cleveland Browns here. So what's the turnaround for a complete uniform overhaul? Is it too late to implement something for 2018?

It's all for merchandising sales. I don't know that the teams really have a full say in whether or not their uniforms change. I think the NFL and Nike are the driving force behind it. In the end, its a money grab.

They've changed their uniform plenty.

Honestly, that's about the same amount of changes that the Dolphins, Jags and Seahawks have had. Same colors, and the helmet is pretty much the same, but that's about it.

If we're talking little changes, here you go. The only major differences here are the collar stripes, and the number of stripes on the shoulders.

Let's be honest, all but the Seahawks had a horrendous looking uniform prior to their SB Win. And some still do (looking at you Broncos). These teams had to make changes, not to help their SB dreams. But to help the fans by saving their eyesight.
