Calm down -- no need to freak out. These are just phony concept unis for the 2012 season when our friends at the formerly-sweatshop-labor-employing sportswear juggernaut Nike replace Reebok as the NFL's official uniform supplier. But wow, what a difference.
You've seen these uniforms on the Oregon Ducks and a handful of other NCAA football teams this season, and for the most part they've looked pretty cool. But the hideous interpretations of the Jaguars and the Steelers makes you want to shield your eyes with one hand and stab their designer in the throat with the other. That's not to say there aren't some good-looking changes, though. I think the Colts, Raiders, Panthers, Cardinals, Titans, Rams, and especially the Jets have to be happy here.
The Eagles version....meh. Don't particularly love or hate these. They're kinda vanilla, especially when you consider what Nike did to the Patriots. AMERICA!
