Ok, thought I would post something different to get our minds off coaches for a minute.  Updated article posted today in regards to new Nike jerseys which should be out in about 3 months,.


If buying NFL jerseys before April, buyer beware

Posted by Mike Florio on January 24, 2012, 7:23 AM EST


We write this item not to create problems for our friends at the NFL.  But our loyalty lies primarily to the millions (and, amazingly, there really are millions) who rely on us for information about the sport they love.

If you love the NFL enough to plunk down some jack for a jersey, replica or official, you probably should wait three months.

In April 2012, Nike takes over the apparel contract from Reebok.  And on the day that the switch was announced in October 2010, Nike Brand president Charlie Denson told Darren Rovell of CNBC that significant adjustments are coming.

“We plan on changing the NFL jersey dramatically just like we’ve done with the college programs, using new thinking and the greatest technology available,” Denson said. “The NFL program hasn’t had the same type of advancement in recent years.

The looming change possibly explains why players like Vikings running back Adrian Peterson are contemplating a number change.  Recently on his Twitter page, Peterson mused about shifting to No. 21 or No. 23.  (Maybe Peterson knows something that cornerback Asher Allen, who currently wears No. 21, doesn’t.)

In past years, a player-initiated number change would have been met with a requirement that the player refund Reebok for the existing inventory of jerseys with the number he wants to abandon.  With the new Nike jerseys coming soon, there’s a chance that it will be open season for the shifting of numbers.

Regardless of whether we’ll see players changing numbers, the jerseys apparently will be changing.  And it would make sense to refrain from breaking out your change purse until the new designs are unveiled.

I'm excited. Sure it seems silly to some, but I can't wait to see the new Unis.

Stoked....I don't think that there will be too many changes to the main uni's of most teams, but I'm sure that there will be some pretty cool alternates and throwback type stuff. More of the "changes" will be seen in the materials, fit, and textures of the jerseys. Everything will be tighter, lighter, and dryer. Just look at anybody that plays for a school sponsored by Nike. They all have the super-tight almost sleeveless look. I'm a fan of the new trend and interested to see how it translates to the NFL uni's.

As if one trolling by Phil Knight isn't bad enough...I hate to see what he's going to do to our jerseys.

I've never understood how Pewter or Gray is any more neutral than white or black,

i am pumped for new uniforms! I hope they dont ruin some classic things, but one of my favorite parts of Madden franchise mode is designing new uniforms. Even if they do nothing for jerseys, Nike will still make better hats and apparel, Reebok has been sucking lately.

the pewter and black look is pretty cool looking JDub

Due to the Head Coaching circumstances, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned back on. We appreciate your patience.

LOL Nike will refuse to make our jersey, unless we tell Mr Knight were sorry for trying to take his golden boy away from him

Nike will be going for drastic changes and it's rumored that they will test out practice pants with built-in exposed boxers.

who said they cant?  Teams still have the final say and the NFL isnt going to let Nike just do whatever they want.
