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

    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      It speaks volumes that you only got down to position 5 before my initial reaction was 'oh my God'.   4 position groups where I'm generally happy - including Special Teams and a O-Line that was an apparent weak point last year and has only had a rookie center brought into the starting group. Eek!

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      No products are really finished coming out of college but their are more polished products than Clark coming out of college at his position and what I saw while watching him is a player that was a 4th-5th round O Lineman
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      I know. By my compliment I was simply saying (Obviously unclearly) that I thought he went a round to early at least. I know how the draft works. Really I do
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Just curious.....    do you know the story of 2015 OT DJ Humphrey from Florida?   He was drafted by Arizona in the 1st round last year.     And he did not play a single snap in 2015.    In fact,  he didn't even dress for a single game.     He was on the 53 man roster --- no way around that, if he wasn't he be snapped up by another team if he was on the practice squad --- but he sat on the sidelines for all 16 games.   And here's the deal --- it was specifically by DESIGN.    That was Arizona's plan.    They knew that Humphrey got poor coaching in college.    But he had tools you simply can't teach.    So, they red-shirted him for a year and the goal is that he starts this year.     Will it work?     I don't know,  but I hope so.    I'm rooting for Humphrey,  for Arians, who clearly signed-off on the idea -- and for the Cardinals for being so forward thinking.   That brings us to Clark.   He doesn't have the same measurables that Humphrey has.    He has MORE qualities, BETTER qualities.    Height, weight, speed,  arm length, hand size,  Wonderlic,  character --- everything you want.   And the Colts didn't have to spend a 1st round pick on him.    We got him in the 3rd, 82nd overall.   I'm not a religious person,  but God doesn't make many men with the traits that Clark has.    Those traits alone make him a top-100 pick ---- easily.     Seriously.    The hope is that two, three years from now we all look back and think....    "what a steal"...    There are not enough finished products coming out of college these days.   They're not taught the pro game very well.     NFL teams have to find the best athletes and players,  and coach them up.     That's what makes the Clark pick so interesting.     We might strike gold.     And we might not.....    But that's the NFL these days.   Whether any of us likes it or not.....

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
