Authentic Reebok vs Elite Nike

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there have both? If so, how do they compare IYO? I haven't seen an Elite in person yet but I can tell you I hated the next level down I saw in the stores. The swoosh stands out like the "horseshoe on the sleeve walmart jerseys" and there is blue stitching over white on it that looks horrible. It's not a clean look at all.

From what I have been told the official Nike jersey hasn't been released yet. Or so that's what I was told by a local shop not to far from me who has been trying to get them from some time now. For what the SRP is from Nike on an Elite the thing better do your tazes for you. I'm not sure about anyone else but buying a $250 jersey is a bit out there. I will say though that from what I have been told the Nikes are "suppose" to be a lot nicer. They're more fitting and lighter

The Nike's have been released.

Personally, I like the Nike's better especially with the check mark on the shoulder. The only problem is that there is no Colts logo on the Nike's.

Probably just having trouble getting them in then I imagine. Last time I asked about them they were still a ways off from getting any. Partially the reason why I bought a Proline helmet for training camp over a jersey

I have both and I prefer the Elite Nike, they do run slimmer than the Reebok so if your Reebok was snug in any way you'll probably want to go the next size up. Also the numbers/sizes are different so say a 50 or a Large in the Reebok isn't the same because my Luck jersey is a Large and is number 44, so if you order online double check that you're getting what you really want.

Has anyone actually seen the Limted jerseys anywhere? The middle of the line thats supposed to be around $135. I probably would have ordered an Elite off of the pro shop if they weren't $50 over suggested retail.

I agree - it just makes no sense. People accept the number as if it's an investment in a piece of sports memorabilia that may increase in value, rather than an expenditure on an article of clothing. I don't buy $250 articles of clothing. I don't think that I've ever even bought a suit for that much money (and I do my own taxes).

Of course I used to wear a suit while preparing other peoples taxes, and hated it so much that I would have gladly paid $250 if allowed to wear a Colts jersey instead. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, there may be a business opportunity in there somewhere.

They are ok. Fit tight in the shoulders. The limited and screen prints arent worth the $$$ they are printed for. Cheap made IMO. I ordered a Reebok authentic Angerer jersey a couple weeks ago. Got $100.00 off, so it was worth it. I prefer the Reebok's to the Nikie's. I tried on the Nike's and didnt care for them. I'll stick with Reebok.

Side note.. did anyone notice the pic of Manning in his new Nike Broncos uniform? Jersey: Nike Pants: Nike Shoes: Reebok.. haha

I have the new Nike Jersey. the game day and elite one. bought them both off the colts site.

The game Jersey is screen printed but is designed the way they wear on the field. like the torso and abdomen and whole back side is cloth not netted like the jerseys from last year an years before that. plus its alittle tighter fit and the shoulders are loose as if you could fit shoulder pads under it.

The ELite Jersey is stitched numbers and names, and from what the tag says, is made out of nylon and spandex. but has a modern day fit to it, with sloped shoulders.

I bought the game jersey, and got the elite for fathers day. in my opinion their both nice. just the elite is like $300. but beware their nothing like the reebok jerseys. they will feel alittle different, you just got to get use to them. but very very nice. fortinately they were not out of stock on either one (the andrew luck jerseys that is), like the RG3 one i bought my dad for fathers day. the elite jersey and game day RG3 jersey were both sold out and still are sold out. unfortinately i bought it and now im on the waiting list that goes as far as to mid august to end of august to receive it.

Sorry if this has already been asked but:

Does anyone know if Indianapoliscoltsnflshop.com is a legit site? They appear to take paypal so that makes me think they're not a scam. I wouldn't trust them if they only used Western Union.

The reason I ask is because they have Colts Nike Elite jerseys at a great price.

I would be very leary of them and would not buy from this site. I found this in their faq's page:

8. How do I can return the items to your company?If the product's quality is no problem, we can't to accept the return it.If there's a few problems of goods (for example, the stain or the line did not cut off clearly), we hope you can wash it or clean it,then we will give our guest appropriate compensation. If the size is small for you , or when you received your jersey, you find you don't like it and so on, these problem we don't accept .So hope you can understand us. 9. How many payment method do you accept?We can received the payment through Visa Card,Master Card,Paypal Method,Western Union and Money Gram.10. How long can I get the customized Product?Because the product is customized, we must ask the manufacture to product it. So usally it need about 15 days to get the item from the factory. We hope you can wait for it patiently. And once the parcel is shipped,we will give you the tracking number.11. Why do you charge my card more than your product price?We only receive the product price. The extra money may be charged by the blank as the blank fee.Hope you can understand.

It doesn't sound professional to me and a legit service would accept returns under any circumstances I would think.

Yeah, doesn't sound like English is their first language. I want to stay legit. I thought since they took PayPal and major credit cards they were okay. I'd rather pay more and get a legal jersey.

    • @Finball and Chicago are up next
    • With the 220th pick, The Washington Redskins select:    Travin Dural, WR, LSU   @Finball and The Bears are on the clock
    • I wanted to create a topic where we could discuss the facts that were presented in Stampede Blue's film breakdown of our current Offensive lineman and some info I pulled from PFF, and hopefully get a better understanding of what it is they do well and where they need to improve. I see a lot of people that post here that have some misconceptions about each player, and these film breakdowns may clear up some of that, so that we can have a more appropriate discussion on what to do in the draft and where we stand as a team.   So, for the sake of saving time, I put a link to all the articles below, and summarized the main takeaways from each. (Everything below was taken from the articles I've linked, none of it is my own deductions or thoughts.)   PFF Offensive Line Rankings- Colts Ranked 25th Overall- The most interesting bit of information from this was that they felt Castonzo had a really strong year, and that our original starting 5 were far superior to ANY combination we used when we had to account for injuries.   Anthony Castonzo - PFF 20th Ranked LT Strengths- Good awareness, athletic and strong, good ability to anchor, wins most of the time when he initiates contact. Weaknesses- Way too inconsistent, sometimes utilizes poor technique, susceptible to bull rushes Pass Protection- Good
      Run Blocking- Good-  (PFF ranked Castonzo as our top rated run blocker) Upside- If he can work on his technique, he can become the top level LT that we need him to be, and that he was a few years ago. Overall- Solid Starter   Jack Mewhort  Strengths- Everything- Athletic, intelligent, great in both pass protection and run blocking. Mewhort should be a rock on our O-line for years. Weaknesses- Very little, occasionally released a block too early. Pass Protection- High Quality Run Blocking- High Quality Upside- Perennial Pro-Bowler
      Overall- High Quality Starter   Joe Haeg at RG and Joe Haeg at RT Strengths- Very mobile, able to get to and be effective at the second level, good technique, like Castonzo he wins most of the time that he initiates contact, good run blocker Weaknesses- Very poor anchor that becomes a major liability in pass protection, not physically strong enough to beat some defenders when asked to "hold the line," victim of making some mental errors that could be attributed to being a rookie Pass Protection- Below Average
      Run Blocking- Good Upside- If he is able to add strength in the weightroom and develop a stronger anchor, Haeg could be a strong starter at RG or RT in the future. But until he can add strength and develop his anchor, his ceiling is very limited.
      Overall- Back-Up with upside.     Le'Raven Clark Strengths- In his rookie season, Clark showed flashes of being a High Quality Starter. Incredible athlete, great anchor, long arms and strong hands, can shadow defenders well, athletic enough to get to the second level in the run game.  Weaknesses- In his rookie season, made some mental errors, susceptible to being beat with leverage when he punches and pushes off instead of locking on. Pass Protection- Good Run Blocking- Good Upside- As he develops, Clark could become our future LT if Castonzo doesn't improve. This upcoming year could be a breakout year for Clark.
      Overall- Solid Starter     Denzelle Good- Pass blocking and run blocking Strengths- The biggest and perhaps strongest lineman on the roster, can win one-on-one in pass protection and run blocking, great anchor, viscous at the point of attack, mauler and brutish run blocker, wins more often than not Weaknesses- Lacks technique in certain areas such as dealing with speed rush, releases blocks too quickly on occasion, not very mobile in the run game, loses his balance in both the run game and passing game Pass Protection- Good Run Blocking- Good Upside- Good has the ability to be our starting RG if he can develop his technique, work on keeping his balance, and potentially drop weight in order to become more mobile in the run game. Hopefully, with help from Joe Philbin, as he enters his 3rd season, he shows improvement in those areas and can put a strangle hold on the RG spot.
      Overall- Solid Starter ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Missing from this list is obviously Kelly, but we all know he's a stud and is going to be our starting Center for years to come. Also, there is no info on newly signed Brian Schwenke.   Using this information, I think we can see that there is a ton of upside with our current roster.    Kelly, Mewhort, and Le'Raven Clark look to be the real deal. Denzelle Good has size and strength that cannot be taught. If he can work on his technique a bit he could become a huge asset for us. Same thing with Haeg. Haeg shows very good technique, and if he can add some strength and develop a strong anchor (easier said than done, I know) I think Haeg could turn into an All-Pro RG or RT. And if we can get Castonzo back to the level he was playing at before, then we're all set at LT and RT.   I bring a lot of this up because I know the media has made a big deal about the Colts spending a high draft pick on OL. Now, I was all for trying to sign one of the top Free Agent Guards, because we had the money, but I think we have more pressing needs to address in the draft. Good is starting his 3rd year, Haeg and Clark are entering their second. If these guys can take some big steps forward and can STAY HEALTHY, our line could be leaps and bounds better.   Personally, looking at the information above, I think it would be a mistake to use anything more than a 4th round pick on another lineman.   And as a side note, the O-line has been in Indy working together, training and in the weight room for a lot of the off-season. That gives me even more hope, especially for a player like Haeg.
