You won’t see it today at the unveiling of the new Nike uniforms, but the Jags are getting a complete overhaul. Sure, it looks the same old next to all the other teams’ uniforms in New York. The familiar teal top and white bottom look about how they looked last year. And they are.
But Nike has a couple things hiding up its sleeve.
Come 2013, the Jags are going black. And they ain’t ever coming back.
The Jags are looking to revamp their entire uniforms to a solid black look. Think the old uniforms from the mid-2000s. Yeah the ones that looked good. We’d have them this year, but the Jags missed the deadline for submissions to Nike and will have to wait until next season. I suppose that’s just a sacrifice we had to made what with the whole new owner thing.
Nike will make the black look even better. So much better. Nike is trying to streamline every look for every team. What this means for the Jaguars is a sleek new look that will make Blaine Gabbert look less like a girl on the field and more like a sculpted man.
If you want to see a solid revamp, check out Seattle’s new duds. They may continue to sit at the bottom of the NFC West, but with Matt Flynn and a new look, you’re guaranteed some form of excitement.
I’m excited to see the true revamp of the Jags in 2013, and I’m hoping the team responds positively as well. It’d be nice to have Blaine Gabbert’s breakout season come with new uniforms, but I’m just assuming they’ll have come the season after he establishes himself as a truly solid quarterback.
