Patriots new logo.

Okay, SW1 has got to ask why so many teams are changing their logos? What's the point? Personally, I don't care for the new look. Go back to the vintage red & white uniforms like John Dee said. 

 

The blue Patriot lettering is spaced too far apart to me. Why not feature a Revolutionary soldier firing a musket in some capacity or charging a battlefield with the bayonets pointing out?

I heard the browns are changing their uniforms next year

So when are the Colts going to change their logo? That horse shoe is so antiquated. How about an actual Colt?

 

Blasphemy!  That's not antiquated it's called classic.  I hope they never change it.

 

I like the font better on the Pats logo, but with their team colors it could be made a little more eye-catching.

got to admit when I clicked through I as hoping they had done something about that big chinned guy

but,they only changed the font

I guess it's ok

The Flying Elvis is just weird, it could go. 

The thing is the old logo was by far and away the worst. Even worse than the Cream Sickle Tampa jerseys.

You make an excellent point CR 91. The Cleveland desperately need a team logo on their helmets & a rallying cry fan song. Maybe a vicious, menacing logo might help that lackluster NFL team actually win. Besides, their orange helmets remind me of AZ red clay soil content or Sherbet ice cream. Not exactly tough symbolism there IMHO like part of a retro Tampa Bay Bucs old school creamsicle uniform piece that didn't pass the franchise cutting room, basement design floor or something.

No, the horseshoe is steady, strong, & timeless...Don't mess with perfection. We already have a Colt mascot called Blue primarily for little kids etc etc .Another Colt would seem redundant to me.

Hey amfootball, how bout just a Grey Hoodie surrounded by mist, night, & fog in the distance like a western cowboy outlaw whose eyes you never see until it's too late? 

 

Then again, it could be misinterpreted as "Jack The Ripper" too not a good public relations message either. See...

Besides, if you are a winning franchise, why tempt fate & alter the consistent mojo anyway? I'm not superstitious, but why mess with good fortune NE? Don't turn the Tequila worm/luck against your organization man. If nothing is broken, leave it alone. No bad curse or voodoo needed thank you very much. 

 

I also agree 100% with QuizBoy, Broncos & Colts are too identical in equestrian scope. Yes, there are more than 1 NFL bird team, but at least Eagles, Ravens, Cardinals, & Falcons look different from each other in appearance, size, & flight pattens to me. 

 

Changing team logos smells of desperation to me not stability. The best organizations set treads & lead at the forefront; they never succumb, capitulate, or yield to mainstream, popular trends ever. Classic means there is no reason to alter anything...Be comfortable with who you are & what got you here...A top tier franchise...

Slightly off topic, but SW1 has always liked the logo of the Houston Texas. Very Classy!  :worthy: I don't know it probably has something to do with a May birthday & a Taurus being my zodiac sign too. It fits my temper too, which rarely rears it's ugly head, but like a red flag from a Spanish bullfighter AKA "corrida de toros" you know it when you feel it & see our wrath. Just Kidding! 

 

In any case, the Texas logo is pretty sweet & sophisticated IMO...Just don't upset the bull in the china shop man...LOL! You didn't expect me to say something nice about the Cowboys did ya?  haha

Yeah Coltssouth, "The act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk" pretty much qualifies as an attempt to modify the blue horseshoe. Blasphemy indeed..."Oh the humanity!"  :D

As much as I admire NE as a powerhouse franchise, I gotta give SDS 4 thumbs up for the clever anecdote here.  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:  :thmup:  LOL genuis SDS...All in innocent fun Foxboro nation...

 

I'm really surprised that no one has crafted a Spygate Eric Mangini behind bars cartoon or something. This made me chuckle too. SW1 does have a sense of humor & laughing at one's misfortune's tends to make them disappear faster & lose potency over time IMO..."The Patriot Way" revealed? Hmmm...Just kidding!

If helmet designs are  trademarked as corporate logos of all 32 franchises & I would suspect that even the Browns have a specific shade of orange, why are fan hats modified so much aren't they considered corporate property of the owner too? But every year, NFL publications list new hats with slight changes to them. I do understand the need to preserve a vintage design for a team's history over the decades though.

It just strikes me as odd that a team tries to establish 1 set standard of recognition & then they mess with the formula for a quick & easy buck I guess...You don't see car engineers go hey we created the top selling design beloved by the masses who bought our car in droves now lets royally bleep up a good thing & forever tarnish this great design shall we? Ha! Ha!

    • Do we want to talk with FACTS actually or do we want to spew nonsense?  Here's the average time to throw for Luck for the first 8 games in 2018 - 2.64  Average time to throw for the last 8 games -  2.63!     So... he actually threw faster in the second half of the year!!!    Come on! Stop with this nonsense.   There was a difference in the way Luck played in the 1st half vs 2nd half of the 2018 season. That difference was NOT about him executing Reich's offense in one part of the season or reverting to old Luck in the second part. That difference was in the pass-protection in the two parts of the season - in the first half of the season the OL was still in shambles, AC was injured, Braden Smith had not been introduced to the starting spot. The OL in its current form didn't take shape until week 6. This was why Frank wanted Luck to spam short passes - because we were bad both in pass pro and in run blocking. Thus we relied on Luck to execute quick reads and keep the offense moving with dink and dunk type of offense. In the second half the OL stabilized itself, and the playbook was opened a bit, we started taking more and more intermediate and long shots out of RPOs and PA passes but WITHOUT actually sacrificing the quick passing game.   If you cannot tell the difference between that second half of 2018 and the Pagano years, then I don't really know what to tell you. 
    • Hackett out of Jags search now and Leftwich is a no go it seems so...Flus may fill that spot as early as today.
    • LOL.  The Colts performed MRIs several times, and never could find anything.  It was a mysterious injury that caused too much pain to play...or Luck's concern about aggravating..,, that the doctors never supported with facts.  Other than to say..."sometimes thing like this happen."  
    • Did Frank let TY run those routes before this season?  You make it sound like Frank is too dumb to know that TY is fast.   Why does a high success rate mean that more of it should be done?  You keep coming back to this way of thinking with many other subjects too.  A success rate tells us that the decision of when to do something succeeded.  That the decision maker used good judgment about when to use it given the situations.  That's all that it says.  It doesn't say anything about how many other times he should have used it when he didn't.  You keep thinking that a high success rate means that he should have just used those plays more when he didn't.    For someone who seems to focus on stats, you consistently display less than a working knowledge about how to use them or analyze them.
    • New player on my watch list:  Sean Rhyan, OT, UCLA, 6-5 318#, DraftTek rank #76   Just in case we don't choose an OL in the 2nd round, I was testing out players down the list for possible diamonds in the rough.  Most of the OT's in that range look like RT's.   The write-up on Sean Rhyan is that he is a behemoth of a man, with high power, great run blocking, and good awareness.  I watched highlight film on him, and he's shown playing both left and right tackle.  The downside on him is that he lacks exceptional proportional length.  (In English:  his arms aren't long enough.)  I haven't pulled out a tape measure, but I don't thinks his arms are as short as Eichenberg's.  But he suffers from a similar issue.  It's something he has to deal with in his pass blocking.   All things being said, if we were to draft a DB or a WR at #47, I could see us taking a look at Ryan at #82.
