New NFL sideline caps hint at what uniforms team will wear this year

New Era revealed the sideline caps for this upcoming NFL season. The overall design scheme is simple. It’s the main logo along with a┬álarger logo in the background blending into the crown the cap. From a distance, it is hardly noticeable and looks very similar to the caps the players and coaches had been wearing since Nike took over in 2012.

However, if you look at the caps that the teams will be wearing, it will show you what throwbacks you should expect from several teams this year.

There are some old throwbacks that were expected to be worn this year.

Farewell to Examiner.com, the place where I got my career start

This breaks my heart. Examiner.com was the place I got my strong foothold in online journalism back in January 2009 covering the San Francisco 49ers. That’s three seasons covering the team and I wrote a ton of pieces and traveled to a lot of places. Here is the link to my page which is still up right now.

I understand the reason for the change and it’s part of the business. I still miss covering the team and some of my best writing was from my time with Examiner.com.

So long Exmainer.com. Thank you for giving me the platform to cover the 49ers, attend practices and games, and meet the players and coaches. The experience was life-changing.

 

The aftermath: My thoughts on what happened at Super Bowl 50

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone and the Broncos are champions again. But there were a lot of thoughts that came to my head during the bout and I will just share them with you right now.

 

  • I am so glad the game was played in California. The California sun really makes it seem like a cool progression from light to night during the game. I wish I attended this game since it’s at Levi’s Stadium. Maybe next time. Although there were complaints about the turf again. But the NFL took care of the turf for the game, not the Niners, so this wasn’t on the Niners this time. Is field turf a possibility?
  • Don’t ever boo Tom Brady.
  • Lady Gaga is a legend and she did great. I didn’t read on any of the reports of people being upset but they are just fools.
  • I had thought that the Broncos pass rush was so superior that there was a chance it would upset the supposedly balanced Panthers team. That was the only factor I thought that would give the Broncos the advantage. That was it. Von Miller deserves the MVP award.

My predictions for Super Bowl Sunday

This will only be the fifth time ever that these two teams will face off in a game.

The Super Bowl is here and it’s time for those predictions. This should be a great game featuring two very strong defenses and offenses led by two superb quarterbacks.

Here are some things I look forward to in this game.

The Super Bowl 50 end zone snafu with two Broncos end zones is all the talk

A couple days ago I found and posted this picture.

I noted that it appears that they had started painting the Broncos end zone on the wrong side of the field before realizing the error.

Just today, my tweet generated some buzz and was used in some articles.

Broncos get uniform superstitious for Super Bowl 50

The Broncos will be making their eighth Super Bowl appearance in team history. In those games they have worn three different jersey colors. Here are their records.

Orange: 0-4

White: 1-1

Blue: 1-0

The team just announced that despite being the designated home team, they will wear their all-white road look. I think they don’t want to wear the unlucky orange tops.

With this news, that means the Panthers are wearing their black tops. Those jerseys have been paired with silver or black pants in the past. Knowing that owner Jerry Richardson is a traditionalist, I expect this uniform matchup for the Super Bowl.
