The Indians’ Wahoo-free uniform is better

With the Indians moving on from Chief Wahoo, they have unveiled three new elements to their uniform set as part of the transition. Wahoo is no longer on caps and on sleeves of the uniform. Instead, the Indians are embracing the Block C on all caps and the Wahoo patch instead will featuring the All-Star Game patch.

Their red jersey is actually a nice look, giving us a reminder of the bold red uniforms they wore. I actually think the red jersey works and it is a fresh new look. Especially since the navy version of this was worn so often in previous years. That navy jersey is gone now.

That home cap that pairs with it makes the most sense. The same Block C logo but it still gives the Indians in a sense the same home look with a navy cap with red brim.

What is a throwback uniform?

Today I encountered an interesting debate on Twitter when I saw this post.

The list talks about the best throwback uniforms in the NFL and the #1 spot went to the Chargers.

Wait? The Chargers are wearing throwbacks this year? Well, actually, they aren’t. But somehow, this article included this set into the throwback debate.

49ers unveil 1994 all-white throwbacks for upcoming season

The wait is over. After successfully avoiding leaks, the San Francisco 49ers have unveiled a new alternate uniform from the upcoming season. It is inspired by their ever popular 1994 uniforms which they wore during their last Super Bowl title season. Those specific uniforms were a throwback to their 1955 set.

These uniforms are not exactly 100 percent accurate to those uniforms as it will feature white socks (to go with the no longer mandated Color Rush initiative). But apparently the players can opt to wear red socks if they please.

Everything else remains the same, although with the way jerseys are cut these days, the sleeve stripes are moved up significantly. There are no TV numbers and the team will wear the same helmets they wore in 1994.

The addition of white pants is a welcomed look that some 49ers fans have clamored for. It’s a look that the team has not worn since the 1997 season. Now they have the all-white look from 1994 back in their rotation.

If the 49ers are getting alternate uniforms, this is what they should do

 

Thanks to Niners Nation, it looks like the 49ers are making a uniform change for next season. It appears that there will be a new alt.

Now with the black unis not hitting their five-year shelf life that is required, it makes me wonder if that is being eliminated. Perhaps with Color Rush being no longer a requirement, that the black uniforms will go with it. But the black uniforms were created before Color Rush so maybe we don’t get to rid of it at all.

Jaguars and Dolphins make uniform changes for the better

Both the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars unveiled new changes to their uniforms today. Both were expected announcements, with the both teams going back to their traditional looks for the upgrade.

For the Dolphins, their new uniform made a simple change: more orange, less blue. In fact, the blue was removed all together (except for the logo) and the brighter orange is much more pronounced on the helmet stripe and number trim.

The new Titans uniforms are so underwhelming

I could go into a long detailed post about these uniforms but I won’t. The team kept the same colors but just moved some things here and there and added that silver sword to the yokes.

But here are my initial thoughts:
