Feature A More Streamlined Look
NICE DECISION: In Jacksonville, Matt Soergel writes the uniforms are "certainly cleaner than those busy old ones, accomplished largely by banishing the color gold to where it belongs: The iconic snarling Jaguar head." Some observers "will complain that it's boring, but what's undeniable is that the new look is crisper and more elegant." Soergel: "Another wise move: It's teal jerseys and white pants for home games, a classic Jaguar combination." Soergel notes the all-black uniforms that "showed up a few times the last few years are gone." Weaver "flatly ruled them out" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 4/23). Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said of the new uniforms, “A real clean look, something that we do think will have a timeless-ness about it. ... We’re going to have a freshness about us” (“NFL Total Access,” NFL Network, 4/23).
LIONS DEN: In Detroit, Jamie Samuelsen wrote of the new Lions logo and uniforms, "If the goal is [to] dramatically alter the model, I don't see much alteration. I hope the goal was just to tweak things because if they were looking to overhaul the look and feel of the team, they failed." Samuelsen added, "I just never had an issue with the Lions logo. I tend to be boring when it comes to sports teams, but I'm just not a big fan of change. ... My reaction to the Lions logo? A bit of a yawn" (FREEP.com, 4/22).
