I would need to see the blue helmet before I have an opinion.  When I think Colt helmet I think white with a blue horseshoe. I would be happy with blue cleats and leaving the helmet the way it is.

I mentioned this on game day, and I love the all blue uniforms. I am not sure about having blue helmet too, but definitely on the white uniforms.  These all blue should become the home uniform to me.

We haven't played well in them, that's for sure.  2017 - flat and one of the most boring games I've ever seen.  2018 - flat, lucky to win.

Not a color rush fan, at all.  Too much of one color (see Broncos prison uniforms from yesterday in support of my opinion) is hard on the eyes.  Now, I could handle the blue pants with the white jersey.  No and never to a blue helmet with white horseshoe.

 

I think we've gotten too hung up on uniform variances and I blame the Oregon Ducks.  I think it hurts a team's identity when uniforms are messed with too much...especially iconic uniforms the the Colts, Packers, Bears, Steelers, etc.

For some reason I was surprised to see how dark the uniforms were yesterday.  I thought they were not as deep as they actually were.  I liked how they looked yesterday and would like to see them more often.

Really like that blue helmet JFunk just showed, but couldn't see it with yesterday's uni's.  Too much blue there, but I would like to see what they look like with the white uni's.

It's like any other uniform.  Wear the same uniform to work every day for years and years, you just want a change.  Doesn't mean it has to be a permanent change.  But eventually, it gets old and/or boring.  I think an alternate uniform like the one yesterday, once or twice a year gives the newness some people crave, and it's subtle enough to not affect the team's - to use your term - identity.

They are nice for a change but I'm not sure I'd want to see them as an every game thing.

This. . . putting on something different for 1 or 2 games a season is good for a little bit of variety.

Liked them, but want to return to the white please. I’ll probably get laughed at for this, but I think changing to that all blue for a game could possibly have a very slight impact on performance in certain situations.  In the heat of the moment once the ball is snapped, it is far easier to pick out a white uniform in a millisecond and Luck is also used to looking for that white. Back to white and everything is going be alright.

That makes little sense, Luck just threw for the highest completion percentage of his career in those all blue uniforms....  Don't think spotting his Receivers was even a minute issue due to uniform changes... lol

I prefer the base unis, but also enjoy a little different look once in a while (2 - 3 times a season?).

I'm just happy to see them on TV, so I'm not going to go too nuts with the colors they wear (as long as it's blue & white (mostly).

 

BUT, I'm color blind, so I'm sure that discounts my opinion.

 

BTW, anyone see the Browns/Bengals game?

What if they played each other in a color rush game? You couldn't fit anymore orange on the screen.

I liked them, I wouldn't mind seeing us bust out a blue helmet either. I always thought a blue helmet/white jersey/blue pants would be a cool road look. Definitely would like to see us keep using the blue pants at points throughout the season.

If there is any change with the helmet I agree with Bott, it should only be with white jerseys and white pants

loved em.  need to be permanently put into our home uniform rotation.

 

I was very surprised to see them yesterday.  Missed the announcement beforehand.

 

But I agree.  Those bad boys need to stay.  If the players like them, that's all that matters to me.

Don't the Dolphins have orange color rush colors too?

Why can't everyone wear white shoes. They look so much better. 

At least we don't have to see cleats in the varieties that the NBA has.

Hey Buccolts, I just came back from the hospital today, and they told me I was colour blind. I was shocked, it came as a bolt out of the green.....

Sorry to hear that, Braveheardcolt, but that bolt was probably brown.....    :)

At least, that's what I'm told....all the time.

The Blue helmet would look cool if the pants were white with the blue jersey, or both white pants and white jersey, not both blue jersey and pants with the blue helmet.

He may have some point. There has certainly been academic research into team colours and success rates. I think there was a definite “advantage” to teams playing in red when it comes what we call football. 

 

It has also been suggested Orange is a good choice given it’s the opposite to green.

If you did blue helmet it would look good with white jersey, blue pants. IMO of course.

If they mess with the road whites in ANY way, i'm becoming a Pats fan.

    • Massive generalisation here. Some fans can understand the nuance of what the team might be trying to achieve as show by @Peterk2011's posts. Given how much the offense improved last year despite Reich being a late hire, not having had time to get the pieces in place he might have ideally wanted, wouldn't you want to see what it can do if can fully implement his vision?     Two points, I think you're right that we might never know the full reason for DeGuglielmo's departure. He seems to wear out his welcome quickly in most places. However he wasn't the only McDaniels hire, I believe Eberflus was as well. 
    • Mod Note I've once again had to remove a number of posts in a topic as they were, aside from a brief interlude of almost intelligent discourse, mostly just personal attacks.    It's fine to disagree, it's fine to "argue" the content of someone's post, it's not fine to resort to name calling and calling other posters out completely out of context to the topic being discussed.    You all know the rules, it would be silly to get banned before the season starts... 
    • definitely talking more about NT. I love Autry, but outside of him it feels like we have a bunch of good not great on the iDL. it's going to be interesting to see how much adding Houston, raises the play of the entire DL.
    • IIRC, almost the same weight. Hines me be one inch shorter.    Like others have said, don't get too attached. He's a scheme guy (Leach), so big questions about how he might translate to the NFL. Most reviews I saw compared him to a change of pace back. Typically change of pace backs are faster. But who knows. Stranger things have happened. 
    • FTFY. You probably meant nearly 5000 posts and 3000 reactions. That's pretty impressive for just 9 months.   Anyway, glad that Inman landed on his feet. I thought he might sign with the Giants who need one or two more WRs.
