These hideous creations starting floating around the Interweb yesterday. They are a designer’s reimagining of the Green Bay Packers uniforms.
Actually, he — Mr. Design Junkie — did redesigned uniforms for every NFL team. They all feature giant numbers, giant logos and the general aesthetic feeling that someone vomited NFL on a shirt and a pair of pants.
I mean, look. It’s isn’t as if this person isn’t a talented designer. It’s just, no thanks.
Thankfully, we’re pretty sure you never have to worry about these seeing an actual football field.
You and I both know the Green Bay Packers uniforms will probably never change. There have been only minor adjustments since Vince Lombardi revamped them in 1959. The forest green and gold color scheme was introduced that year. The iconic G logo has not changed one iota since being introduced in 1961.
Iconic, like the franchise itself.
It’s alright to make your uniforms some obscene neon green mess if you’re say, the Seattle Seahawks. A team like the Packers with history and tradition — not so much.
If you’d like another take on a uniform redesign, this one appeared about two years ago. Again, it was done by a designer and not anyone from Nike or the NFL.
Oh hell no. These look like something “The U” players would wear.
Since when have the Packers ever had a green or white helmet? Why not just change the colors to purple or yellow and make this abomination complete?
Hideous. If the designer gave the uniforms more Nike swooshes and made them just a bit larger on the uniforms; I think we may have something then.
I would like to just take a moment & go off topic to say I am thankful that Thomas Dimitroff is not our GM…
These people should be killed.
Dear od no, just no. Why don’t we equip them with a parole and Go-Go-Gadget Helicopter in their shoulder pads and helmet while we’re at it? This is football not a gorram fashion show.
What the..? Those look like XFL reject uniforms! Me Hate He.
Oregon Ducks, or Green Bay Packers…?
Anyone who remotely likes this bunghole design of a uniform either has no testicles or should have them removed. What a complete and utter waste of time.
I’m not against changing it up if they were to stay within certain parameters. The second set you posted from a couple years ago is actually not that bad…
Horrible. Never will happen. THough the brown/gold helmets isn’t horrible. Kind of old school looking.
The iconic G on the helmet is a little different now than from the 60’s. The original G was elongated to resemble the shape of a football; you’ll notice the more pointed ends back then.
The rest has changed minimally. Those copycat little pants numbers in a circle (Cowfags) were stupid and thankfully didn’t last. The sleeve striping and side numbers have changed a few times through the years.
But all in all, we have the finest, classiest looking uniform in the NFL. You don’t mess with the Yankee pinstripes, the Celtics’ block letters, the Canadiens’ whatever that Ch thing is, nor mostly The Perfect Football Uniform.
And to think Bob Harlan actually considered fucking with it back in the late 90’s.
You’ve got to get a plus model in there before you can even consider it. Just because it looks good on a WR/Safety doesn’t mean it will look good a 320′ lineman.
Beyond the complete assassination of history and tradition… I like the white one with the white helmet. But I’ve always like white tuxedo’s…
I think it would be interesting if we swapped out our yellow for that metallic-gold. Doubt our uniforms will ever change, though.
Maybe all teams should start playing in power ranger uniforms. That’s what this crap is turning into.
The redesigned uniforms aren’t half as shifty as this article.
The only item of apparel and/or color scheme that I would even consider for re design is the throwback uniform. With all due respect to our history & the warriors who played in those colors…its heinous! We can tinker with that uni and still do that era justice. Otherwise, if the color scheme & logo was good enough for Vince…its good enough for eternity.
The colors are wrong for one and for another these uniforms are fucking ugly!
Oh boy that design is awful what are they thinking, never ever change the design its a awesome one they have now Go Pack Go!!!
