The Black (fashion) Jerseys are Coming...

20 posts in this topic

So, Nike has an "Impact" Limited Jersey that is the famous (or infamous) all black. I haven't found the Colts ones anywhere yet, but they will likely look very similar to the Giants ones (example in link).

I know the black jersey is a topic brings out strong opinions here :D and I was wondering what you all think of these.

There's a couple of things I don't like. One is that the NFL logo on the collar is apparently missing. The other is that there is so little other than black, that the difference between one team to another can be very minimal.

I like them. I think they should do something different with the number colors for different teams. Giant, Colts, Panthers, Lions Titans, and Patriots all have a form blue it would be cool if they changed up how the blue was incorperated into the numbers.

I liked Reebok's black with the white letters. Black with black letters seems... Dumb.

I wonder if the stripes and numbers will be outlined in blue.

I wish the numbers, lettering, and stripes were blue with white outlines.

Our color is blue. Root for Pittsburgh or the Raiders if you want black.

Looks more like a Carolina or Jacksonville jersey. it would be perfect it the lettering was a bit more on the teal side.

I'll stick with the actual team colors.

Would love to see the Colts go either all blue or all Black. Both would look great imo.

Black jerseys are bad luck for me. Before the Super Bowl I got a fake black Manning one cause the pro shop was out and we lost. Then after our loss to the Jets I got a real one and it ended up being Mannings last game with us and never even got to wear it with him as a Colt.

That being said I don't know if these have the extra details of the normal jerseys like our shoulder stripes. Everyone I find is just a black jersey with the symbol on the arm and a team colored outline around the name and numbers. If thats how they are then thats pretty dumb imo.

These will not be worn in games. Hence, the "fashion" title of the thread

EDIT: was trying to quote/answer Betheafan41, but I guess my phone wont do the quote function

    • Became diehard lifelong Colts fan in 2004 when Manning and the Colts put up galactic numbers and torched opponents in the regular season.  It was the first year that NFL games were available on TV in Hungary, my small country oversees. Unfortunately it was also a time when Brady and Belichik ruled the playoffs so I still have to face a lot of arrogant Pats fans over here with jerseys in the wrong blue color.  Nevertheless, just to give you an idea: soccer being the most popular sport in Hungary, the championship game of our tiny american football league draws a larger crowd than the total of the 8 soccer games in a regular game day of our national league.  I couldn't make it to London this weekend, my heart broke, feel devestated. Been reading this forum and other Colts blogs for many years and somehow the time has come to become more active in posting. One last thing I wanted to tell you. Part of it me becoming so fond of the Colts were you guys. The optimism, the supportive attitude and the patience toward the team, it was clearly perceptible not only in the Colts organization since the Dungy years but also in its fandom. I always though that these traits clearly distinguish the Colts fans from those of all other 31 teams and honestly from anything we used to see here in Europe where the popular soccer teams change their coaches every other year. I recognize the tone has become more unpatient around here recently also, I mean these complaint threads dedicated to Pags and Grigs pinned on the forum... but maybe it's a good thing to contain our sudden emotions and reactions. However I promise I'll try to keep my cool even in difficult times, rather put away my anger by means of humor and irony so that our message boards remain indeed smarter and more sensible than those of any other team. Can't wait to chat with you guys on this forum and Go Colts in the Wembley!
    • Tankersly I think has a first round grade from Kiper and perhaps McShay....     So, I would't be confident that he'd last to our pick in the 3rd round....   Also,  the problem with those 3 picks is that there's no running back.     I'd hate to wait until the 4th round to take a RB.      This is a great class of backs,  I'd prefer to take one of them on Day 2......   Oh,  and I think there's little chance that Freeman lasts until our pick in the 3rd round.       Believe he'll be gone before the end of R2.      
    • I respect what you're trying to do with the mock and plug holes and of those that I have knowledge on, I don't dislike any of your picks.   Although, I would be very hesitant to give away 2 2nd round picks just to get a higher 2nd round pick. Too many holes to fill and ageing vets to replace to start trading away high picks.
    • Figures, Heath Evans probably has the Jags beating us by 30. I will stick with 27-20. I predicted the Jags would be a .500 team this season and were overrated but they always play us good for some reason even when they are bad. I say we win by 7.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
