New facemasks to be worn under the normal helmet:  

Why? Because it sucks on ice. The Colts have some of the best pro uni's going on par with the Yankees and kids who think these are a great idea want Blue on the side of the helmet or something. No tha

Leave them alone.   The all whites are the best uniform in all of sports

Blue Face Masks are making a comeback!

 

JK.

 

 

Probably won’t even be a noticeable tweak.

 

 

However if all blue becomes a thing at all home games I would be excited!

Would love to see the midfield logo not be a helmet. They could totally pull off just a big horseshoe. 
 

I agree when they say tweak they probably mean something that’s not going to be real noticeable unless your looking for it. (Kinda like how the St Louis Cardinals just tweaked the STL logo used on hats)

 

Theres a lot of things the Colts could do and still keep a pretty classic look. My pick would be add COLTS written in the same font as the end zone on the front chest in small lettering like a few other teams do. Maybe put the retro logo on front of the left leg. I wouldn’t touch the stripes on the jersey or pants or the font to the numbers.

This thread comes up every year. And every time, I say that I want to see an blue helmet with a white horseshoe on the side. (reversed white to blue). 

That would be cool. Personally, I like the all white look on the road but it would be fun to mix in at home. Could even give it some flare..make it a matte blue helmet with the horseshoe having some shine to it!

I’m a big fan of the all whites. I’d rather not touch them.  But best uniform in all of sports is a slight exaggeration lol 

Ok . HA .  Fair enough.  I shouldve added IMO

You can sure tell that it's offseason when some football fans turn into fashion designers. C'mon, guys. The Colts already have the classiest unis in the NFL, both home and away. Leave a good thing alone.

I'm guessing Irsay knows what the fans think and will not mess with them

Well this post is like the 4th or 5th place I’ve seen the Colts are possibly making changes to the logo and/or uniform. Will it be happen? Who knows. But we have no sports for the foreseeable future. So why not talk ideas.

I do not want CHANGES to jerseys or logo. I have spent so much money on Colts gear and I do not want it all to be dated...
I would be fine with something that wouldn't affect that, I guess. Blue facemask... blue pants... something like.

Just think of it as "vintage".  haha

 

Then all the young hipster fans will be jealous of your old school threads.

 

You'll be the coolest cat on the scene.

It is possible that this "tweak" is just (finally) a change from the "flywire" collar to the new template. The Colts and Ravens were the last two teams to have the flywire still (and the Ravens may have switched too).
I would be fine with blue facemask or blue pants, and ditching the flywire template would be an upgrade. I really hope the jersey itself is totally unchanged.

I’m fine with the blue mask....   but I’m not a fan of the blue helmet with the white horseshoe.   Doesn’t work for me at all.

 

Im not an admirer of company’s that are doing things right...   yet still decide to fix things that aren’t broken.   The fans are happy with the look.  There’s no real movement for any real change, yet someone decides we should change our look anyway.   
 

I think somebody inside the executive offices has made a mistake.   I’m sorry Irsay signed off on this.

Do you paint the Effil tower white?

 

Do you paint a cowboy hat on the Mona Lisa ?

 

Do you straighten the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

 

The Colts Blue and Helmet logo are classics.......

I love the blue helmet with the white shoe - by itself.  I'm just not sure how it would look with our jerseys.  If they changed nothing (uniform/helmet) at all for the rest of my life I would be good with it.

Practically every team in sports had black uniforms at one point.  It was ridiculous.  Even the Reds were wearing black uniforms.  What sense does that make?  Their name is a color.

 

Don't change anything.  The blue face mask reminds me of mostly crappy Colts teams.

    • Ravens, think Jackson gets in done in playoffs, KC will be right there, Colts wont be a tough playoff out by any means either, Buffalo a year away imo.     Bears their D gives everyone problems, Robinson having another very good year at WR (Maybe top WR no one really talks about much) already beat the Bucs and their schedule is easy down the stretch also which will allow a fresh roster into the playoffs.  Seattle has looked impressive and a lot of depth, Tampa wont go down easy and Drew looking to cap career in N.O. with one last run.
    • That's a lot of work, I'm always appreciative of the people here that put that kind of effort into the forum.  So thank you.    I just wrote a post on a different topic that touches on this a little bit.  I'm not sure what to make of the receiver carousel but typically receiver production is a by-product of the QB.  Rivers has a lot to do with it as it relates to schemes etc.  We're way to shotgun dependent (75%) which takes play action out of the equation which we're built for. To me, that's because Rivers like to read the defense but it also works in reverse and makes routes and patterns easier to cover because there's no play action and NOBODY is biting on backfield run fakes from the gun.  My two cents.  Thanks again.
    • 2/3, or 4/6 is good for me. If you're taking up 25% for your top picks every year for 11% of your roster, some areas of your roster will simply be imbalanced. It also depends on what you do with in FA, and especially your strategy for other high end positions.  Not saying that's a bad financial strategy, but it is a bad locker room strategy. Not talking specifically about JJSS, just in general. If you're known as an organization that discards after rook contracts, players view you as a factory. I know it's a business, but you have to have to consider it. It would be like us moving away from Leonard, or others, after they perform well and exhaust their cheep rookie contracts.    Houston was stupid to give him up. Considered one of the biggest boneheaded moves of the years. It's why a certain coach has a bad rep. It's a position that's rotated for sure, but a lot of positions are. DL, DB, TE, RB, etc are all highly rotated. Only QB and OL are positions with little to no rotation. In Indy, we don't rotate Leonard, or some other thin positions that much, but that hurts us long term. Anyway, you have to look at averages. Just like TEs. You often list 2 starting TEs along with 3 WRs, but you don't have 2+3 on the field. You average ~1.5+2.5ish. If you're going to use 3 WR with that logic, you have to use 2 TEs, etc. and now your adding to your "22" total to normalize.   I think we both value the position the highly. We just differ on acquisition strategy. I think you have to look at all high priced and strategic positions, and have a better mix for a healthy roster. It doesn't really matter if they are drafts, UDFA, FAs, etc. so long as you have a good age, cost, experience, and skill mix. For example, Ballard has probably over drafted early/mid DEs (2nd and 3rd) round and failed. And looking at the DL in general, only one of the starting 4 are draft picks (which is the cheapest one), and the drafted depth don't look capable of stepping up. So we're in a position end of year where both starting DEs need renewal or replacement. It's a position/area where we've invested both heavy in draft capital, but have had to spend a bunch in FA as well.    Anyway, give me 2 early/mid WRs every 3 years, and 1 FA every 3 years, and some late round or UDFA project lottery tickets every year. That's what we've done. Only injury has gotten in our way from some very potent starting 3s.
    • Exactly right, play action from under center also lends itself to taking the big shots.  We're way too shotgun heavy for a team that wants to lean on the run game and set up play action.  That's part of the reason we're not getting the deep ball as much as we like.  Some people think that we need faster receivers, that's not the issue. It's two fold, it's what Rivers wants (shotgun) so we cater to it because he's the qb and he's so slow afoot by the time he hits his drop in play action the short route windows have already expired, meaning crossers and slants have entered the coverage zone, too slow.     Right now the totality of this offense is driven by one guy, I've said from week one, this team will go as far as Philip can take it.  What offenses fail to realize is zone read is totally pointless if the QB is neve going to keep it.  That makes it easier for the defense to read and react as well.  So not only is it easier for Philip to read a defense but its also easier for the defense to read Philip.    I'll close by saying, I never wanted Rivers here but now that he is, I do like him personally, and he can still be wildly effective when protected.  That scenario will only take us so far.  I have a strong suspicion who our QB may be for 2021 but I'm going to sit on that for a bit...
