This is what I would like to see: Home uni is burgundy with gold stripe around the sleeve jersey and gold pants with a single burgundy stripe up the leg. Away Uni is gold with burgundy stripe around the sleeve jersey and burgundy pants with a single gold stripe up the leg. I like the color burgundy of the 80th anniversary jersey and that could also be our home uni jersey. The gold should be the gold of numbers on the 80th anniversary jersey.
Edited to add: Yes to the above picture, colors and stripes. Reverse for away uni.

While I get a kick out of the retros I was really really really hoping for this one!
"Never got the chance to meet Sean Taylor, but his legacy is embedded in our franchise. Because of that... we play with him every game."
Yea, +1 on the Steelers uni's being the ugliest I've seen in a while.
Well, right next to the Eagles' yellow/blue jerseys we got to see a couple years ago.
Can't wait till I can wear my RGIII jersey with these RGIII socks.
<<<LEAVE AS IS>>>
"Untouchable" (Not really, but you want to keep the classic jersey as the primary "look." These teams have either been so successful or traditional that an overhaul just isn't worth it.
49ers - So glad they dropped the black and went back to the 80s.
Jets - Why would you want to drop the SB III Namath look ever?
"Traditional but not as iconic" (These team might be as successful or more so but they have tinkered with their iconic looks.)
Giants - They went to the 50's throwbacks even though they won 2 SBs with the LT look, which will always be the true Giants look to me. The grey pants just look wrong to me, always have, looks to "soft" if you will. Wouldn't say it's goofy but the overall look just isn't as menacing as the 80's / 90's with those dark, dark blue helmets, which was a great look.
Steelers - They changed their numbers to that sans serif slant, same as it was on their helmets at some point in the 90's which maybe nobody cares about but changes the whole vibe for me. It sounds funny, but even that slight a change is just too fancy for the Steel Curtain. Go back to block numbers already.
Redskins - I've made my feelings known already on this, perfect the championship classic.
Eagles - The 80's silver and green was one of the coolest looks around and they scrapped it for the drab ugly, green, white, black they have now with those ridiculous numbers....**** the Eagles anyway.
Vikings - The Favre era jersey is atrocious. Their helmet is great, their colors are iconic, just go simple and go back to playing outdoors.
Dolphins - They're still dealing with the "add black to the jersey-itis." Go back to simple and clean. It's ok to wear pastels, you're Miami.
Chargers - They moved in the right direction a couple of years back going back to the 60's but they need to drop the dark blue completely and just go all white road and powder blue home.
Broncos - Wear orange at home. Wear orange at home. Wear orange at home. Drop the nike swoosh also. One of the few alternate numbers I can live with.
"Traditional Not Iconic"
Saints - Too many lines around the logo which should NOT have been made smaller a couple of years back.
Seahawks - I like their openness to experiment with their look but the hi-vi green just screams WFL.
Bengals - IMHO it's the best helmet ever designed. What they did to the uniform recently is a disaster. Again, stop with the goofy fonts already. THAT helmet, with a simple black jersey, block letters and some tasteful trim would kick so much ******* *** it's unbelievable.
Lions - Dallas has blue and silver pretty much cornered and the Lions have sucked *** for about 300 years but it's a look that fits. What I don't like is the addition of black into the uniform and the goofy numbers.
Bills - I just don't get the white helmets. At least they got rid of those unis that had like 40 colors on them.
Buccaneers[/I] - Good rebrand, jersey have always seemed a little too elaborate to me especially the numbers but at least they're block.
"Devalued Classic Icons" (Could change, could not, no big deal either way.)
Colts - Every time I see the Colts I think about how they left Baltimore and how cool it would be if they were still there...every time. If the Colts rebranded it would not be a negative in any way. When Irsay says "the horseshoe" I cringe.
Rams - The L.A. Rams gold and blue was a great uniform, never identified it with St. Louis, the gold version is now extra crispy stale, this team should have just rebranded completely. Sad to see THE original helmet design bastardized with a carpetbagger franchise.
Cardinals - I did a whole design project on redesigning this franchise. Suffice to say what they ended up doing in updating their look a couple years back wasn't enough.
"Modern Classic Looks Without Importance"
Ravens - If the Ravens changed their logo would anyone give a ****? It's a dark purple bird on a black helmet, you can't even see it. Black and purple for whatever reason has just never interested me, I suspect it's those goofy numbers, if they went block letters or with a non-ridiculous font it would help stabilize their look. They're a good team, a good franchise but their uniform is too goofy to stick.
Patriots - Any one old enough to remember the late 80's realizes they HAD to rebrand that team. It wasn't a bad job at all but their new look is still not as cool as their old one, it just isn't. Pat the Patriot was just so weird it was endearing, it was actually based on a cartoon created for a Boston paper the day the team was announced. The owner saw it and used it. New England should have white helmets and red jerseys, they could even figure out a way to keep the new logo to not go completely retro. They've won a ton but it's just not a look that means anything....silver and a drab dark blue, who cares?
"Class of 95'"
Panthers & Jaguars - Two cool names but neither identity lives up to it. Football icons should illicit an instant visceral reaction and neither does for different reasons. The Panther's pose is a strange 3/4 shot where everything gets flattened and you lose the intended fierceness of the cat's fangs/roar. The Jaguar is too intricate. Plus they both rely on a neutral like black as a primary color which just makes them bland.
Titans - The fact they stole the Oilers from everybody is too painful to ignore. I've never really identified with a flaming shield with a "T" on it.
"Needs to be overhauled"
Texans - Worst logo ever created in the history of eyeballs. Colors are workable but identity is not.
Falcons - I absolutely hate these amorphous shaped icons. The falcon, like the Cardinals head and the Texans skull is so ******* weak to me as an icon. Colorwise they overuse black, their best look was late 80's when they drafted Deion. Go back to a red helmet.
Good job Rodriggo. I liked your indepth analysis.
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
Nice write up Rodriggo. I pretty much agree with everything you wrote, but...am I the only one who likes Tampa's creamsicle uniform? It's so ugly it's nice.
The Eagles are a real head scratcher...The Randell Cunningham era unis are perfect for them. Why they rebranded, I have no idea. (http://netbrawl.com/uploads/eb8509fe...8c4053c7c9.jpg)
Both NY teams got it right by going for the throwback look. Both unis need no further adjustment.
The Raiders may have best in class. It's simple, and badass at the same time.
I'd like to see the Chargers go back to the Blue / Gold look of the Dan Fouts era. They should at least bust out a throwback for that. (http://www.netbrawl.com/uploads/eb7a...e64d53a6e7.jpg)
The Rams unis from the 60's are awesome (http://www.supersportscenter.com/ima.../icon/2124.jpg) or this from way back when: (http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images...jpg?1334105809)
I don't mind the Titans...but yeah, bummer they're no longer the Oilers.
The Redskins really don't need to do much...Keep the Gold Pants, but just make them darker and less shiny, and same with the Burgundy pants and jersey. Maybe a few minor tweaks but nothing drastic really needs to be done.
The Raven have a terrible uniform. The all black looks like men in leotards. Horrible, and while I think purple is a cool color, it just doesn't mesh with black that well.
The Bills have a nice uniform now. I actually like the white helmet. Their throwback with the red buffalo is very nice. All they need to do is bring back the blue pants like they had in the OJ era. (http://www.rs-sportscollectibles.com...%2008AP001.jpg)
The Patriots have a horrible uniform. It's seriously the leagues most boring. They need to definitely go back to a red jersey. Why did every team that had a lighter blue switch to navy blue? (Broncos, Chargers, Rams, Patriots)
The Broncos have a terrible uniform. They need to go back to the "D" helmets. I'd much rather "D" be associated with Denver and NOT Dallas. They also need to go back to the light blue. (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Y1ZkwH0yMG...+throwback.jpg)
The Chiefs unis are pretty good, but I worry the Redskins are starting to get too red and yellow just like them.
The Falcons from the 80's with the Red helmets and Red jerseys are cool. They new ones look too arena football, and I don't like them at all. Their throwbacks with the red helmet / black jersey is cool. (http://alt.coxnewsweb.com/cnishared/..._1222120_6.jpg)
The Saints need to make that throwback they've been wearing their permanent uniform. Much better than the current. They also need to drop the black pants (see Ravens). Or if they keep them, just add a Gold stripe down the middle. (http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ls...hqdro1_500.jpg) or (http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images...jpg?1292475383)
The Seahawks need to go back to the Zorn look from teh 70's / 80's. That blue and green uni with grey pants was nice. The new ones are an eye sore. (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...niform-SEA.PNG)
Pittsburg is OK...I'd like to see them wear the all white again for a throwback game (http://www.weirdwolf.net/FFP/images/...ttsburgh70.gif)
Green Bay is nice too, I like the Green and Yellow. The only thing I'd try is a reverse, and bust out Green pants with a Yellow jersey (http://www.packersgreenjerseys.com/i...NFL-Jersey.jpg)
Chicago is classic and nothing further needs to be done. The alt orange jerseys look weird, maybe drop those.
Cleveland is classic too...the brown / orange is so ugly that I love it. I'd like to see them in this more often though (http://cdn.bleacherreport.com/images...op_340x234.jpg)
Cincy has cool helmets but the rest is a disaster.
Who cares about the Panters or Jaguars. Yawn.
Miami has a classic look too. Nother really needs to be done there either.
Indy is fine, but yeah, reminds me still of the Baltimore Colts. Maybe a slight rebranding is needed?
The Vikings have cool colors, but their current unis suck. This would be a cool throwback for them (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4028/...26c509e131.jpg)
