I like the uniforms, but would take the horseshoe off the helmet , and replace it with a generic horse. A change from Colts to Kolts would also provide some modern flare.

Lol, you never stop the hate do you? It's OUR cts now bud. Same Colts and will always be the same Colts. Same Colts different city.

Not a fan of dark jersey+ dark pants+ white helmet looks. Like the Jets or Titans, yuck.

I'm picky.

Maybe with a blue helmet at home, white away.

Yeah I like the blue helmet. Maybe without the number. I actually do like the uniforms with the horse shoe look on the chest.

I like the horseshoe on the chest look too but I think the horseshoe on the chest is too big.  Looks like it's wrapped around the player...I actually didn't notice at first that it was supposed to be a horseshoe. lol

The mock-ups are OK....   better than most....   but not as good as what we have.

 

Perhaps for a once a season type uniform, I could live with it...     but I'm not excited for it.

 

They look to trendy for me.....   too hi-tech.....   

 

I like classic Uni's and the Colts have it.....       :thmup:

I really like the Horseshoe on the arms.  I am a teacher in Maryland and I wear my Luck or Wayne jersey to school during their "Purple Friday".  I hate hearing students ask, "You like the Cowboys?".  Having the horseshoe would help me represent here in Maryland.

At least the blind hatred of the Colts seems to have died out before the current generation. "You like the Cowboys?" lmao

Aren't the newer Indy Colts uniforms a different shade of blue than the old Baltimore Colts uniforms. The Indy uniforms seem to have more purple in it, and obviously a different texture. By the way, if you want to score some points with your students in Maryland, wear a Johnny Unitas Colts throwback jersey. Then you would really represent Maryland !

I'm a new member, but have been a Colt fan since 1960....the team unis are simple yet memorable....leave them alone. I too however must admit that the helmet does look pretty sharp.

 

 

You guys would be crazy to change those uniforms, they are a classic.

The offseason is not officially here until someone brings up a uniform change on a Colts forum. ;)

 

Welcome to the offseason!

I like the new helmets suggestion. Kind of like the Alabama look feel. We are too tranditional, we probably won't change.

exactly i believe that my two fav teams are the best dressed in football have to love that vintage look.. However an alternate wouldn't hurt.. I like the all blue idea

Being a Baltimore Colt and Indianapolis Colt fan, I love the tradition of the uniforms and the horse shoe.  I stay the course on uniforms.... :coltshelmet:  :coltshelmet:  :coltshelmet:    

 

While I would buy these jerseys because they are modern and 'snazzy,' I want the memories of Unitas, Berry, Donovan and Moore to never be forgotten each time the Colts hit the field!!! :colts: :colts: :colts:

I'm with you Daddyoooooo!!!!!!!!! The day they ever would start always using those blue helmet and uniforms with the two little horseshoes on the back I would no longer be a Colts fans, the white with horseshoe on side and Johnny U is what made me a Colts fan since 1958 and if they ever did that this is what you all could do for me PLEASE... Yes it's that bad...

this concept has been released the last 3 years. the colts wont be changing up anytime soon. teams like the colts, browns, steelers, dolphins, raiders their all traditional type uniforms and need to keep them that way. already bad enough we may see philly go oregon style now that chip kelly is there lol (just a joke)

Our uniforms will always stay the same. The day they dramatically change them is going to be a sad day.

 

Aside from facemask color changes, and a grey stripe on the pants during the first couple years in Indy our unis are the same as what Johnny U and the legends wore. That is something to be very proud of. We have one of the richests histories in the NFL, and it doesn't need to change.

 

Like I always post when this comes up.

 

The 1957 unis should always be our current:

Have the the 1955 and 1956 uniforms as the alternates.

It's all the Colts need. The most perfect uniforms in the NFL.

Yep, sure do. But I'm from 1958 on and what we have now is all I ever knew. So then I would be just lost and wouldn't know

who they were in a sence. I"d feel like a Captain without a ship are is that lost at sea? So as Al would say if this happens.

Well, I would never drop my team after 29 yrs. of rooting for them just because they changed their look, but I do understand the tradition and I love our all white uni's. It wouldn't bother me a bit though if they went to the blue helmets.

we dont sleep in two seperate beds like folks did in the 50s. milk isnt delivered by a guy to our porch like the 50s. soda pop isnt in bottles like the 50s... times change.

 

its funny how some people hold onto certain things that are out dated as "tradition" and eagerly move on from others. im certain a car getting 13mpg would gladly be traded in by any forum member that was "a fan since Unitas" for a car getting 30+ mpg. im sure we would all like a sharp looking sports car (be it euro or muscle) over an old studebaker lark.

 

Football is a sport watched for entertainment. i at least tune in to see "superhumans" doing things my buds and i only dreamed of doing growing up. these men are stronger, faster and more athletic than i could ever dream of being and i dont think just because we have alwas been in simple understated non flashy uniforms... that we always need to be in them. just like everything else, things evolve.

the colts are a younger, scrappier, different team than Unitas and even Mannings teams. I am all for an update to the uniforms. in saying that, i think iconic pieces need to stay. same blue. same shoe. same white. but the presentation can be reimagined. i like the mock up.

"if you are not moving forward, you are falling behind"

the organization is moving forward. we are all excited. we saw where complacentsy got the colts when Manning went down... we had no plan B. Orlovsky? Painter? we hvae new leadership. coaching. montra. personel. this isnt the same old Colts. so why dress like them.

I wouldn't mind the Blue helmet with the white horseshoe as much as some total different change. But then again leave well

enough alone, what we have now is what made the Colts, besides Johnny U that's who really made the Colts known!!

I agree, I would not want some radical new look like some of the college nonsense that has came out over the last few yrs.. Oregon, Maryland...I'm talking to you!

just my 2 cents :2c: . i am 28 just to quantify where i am comming from, and i compleately get the tradition stance. im not going to win any new friends and thats fine. the Colts will not change so this thread is always fun to read in the off season and fun to look at peoples thoughts. #coltsstrong

You don't mess with tradition. Ask a team like the Yankees if they care about alternative Jerseys. Has nothing to do with being old school, its what identifies your franchise. My vote is not a chance in hell.

    • Keep in mind Leno was a 7th round pick in 2014 but didn't start full time till 2016. He signed an modest extension in 2017, but then made the Pro Bowl in 2018. Had a bit of a down year in 2019, but rebounded for a good year in 2020. He graded better than AC. IMO, he's the best and healthiest option left of the FA OTs. He hasn't hit 30 yet. Fisher is injured and 30. Okung is 33. Given he's the youngest, healthiest, and rates over 70, he'll be in higher demand, as there are still several teams looking for a LT. If he wanted 9M a year for 2 years, I'd take that in a heartbeat. I just doubt he'll be OK with that.    Keep in mind the Bears pretty much had to cut him as they couldn't afford to keep him. They were negative cap. It's why they drafted Jenkins. And Denver, who is one of the few teams to have more cap space than Indy, is highly interested in Leno.   Fisher coming off that injury is a big dice roll. That will impact his market value. Healing at 30 years old is tough for some guys, especially big uglies.   I don't see Leno taking less than 3 year / 30M. I don't see Fisher taking a one year deal at all. Worst thing he could do is do a one year after an injury, look meh this year, and he's done. He'll want 2-3 and some guarantees. He'll take less per year, but he'll want some security.  The team will have most leverage with Okung in terms of $ and duration.
    • The Paye pick makes a lot of sense but the Dayo pick surprised me. I wanted a left tackle and thought that there were a couple of guys who would have made a lot of sense.   Ballard and co know way more about those players than I do, however, so I'll continue to trust their judgement until they demonstrate that I shouldn't.    I'd rather have two good pass rushers than one good pass rusher and one bad left tackle.
    • I like the breakdown and agree although i caveat with this:   I don't think Leno or Fisher was 2-3 year deals unless they get what their market is before being cut.   And I do not think CB is going to big against himself to do that.   Leno basically made $8M-$9M each year ($8.8, $5.0, $8.1, $8.1) and was slated to make $9.0M this year before cut.   If the Colts are going to offer him $8-$9M a year I think he would gladly take a 2-3 year deal. But if the Colts are bargain shopping then I think he and Fisher will both be happy to take 1 year deals and prove their worth and re-enter the market next year when there is a lot more money to go around.   Fisher probably won't go for a 2-3 year deal unless he is making $10M+    I would actually ideally like to see us give one of them a 2-3 year deal where we have cost control on a decent contract for a year or two beyond this one.   I think that is a big win if so. More likely scenario has us giving one of them a $6M-$8M deal for a year and then having to either try to extend them if it works out or let them walk if it doesn't. 
    • Best option if healthy - Fisher (will still likely want 2-3 years)   Safest option - Leno (likely wants 3 years min)   Most expensive option - Leno   Cheapest short term option with a level of safety - Okung (PFF predicts a 3 year deal, which I don't see).   IMO, if you don't grab one of those guys, or other quality FA, you'll end up starting Tevi. If you start Tevi, before long you're moving Nelson to LT.... Ballard likely doesn't want to give Leno 3-4 years and high dollars. FIsher comes with risk. IDK... 
    • Here's what PFF says, and how they rank them in terms of FAs available.   In short, Houston had the worst pass rush graded year of his career, but still was top 10 in pass rush win rate. Kerrigan on the other had a career worst year all around, was really lousy vs the run, while many expected a bump up in production per snap due to the reduced role.   If Houston would take a one year deal, I'd rather give him 10M than give Kerrigan 5M.     Don't forget we lost 2 (Autry and Houston) and added 3 (Paye, Dayo, Rochell). So even if Dayo takes longer, we're still even net/net with the addition of Rochell.    I agree he could start over Banogu. As long as Turay is deemed healthy enough to play, he'd be a better passing downs rusher than Kerrigan. Kerrigan wouldn't play on running downs at all for us. He'd be a rotational or depth pass rush specialist at best.
