A bombshell a minute: Big Nike/NFL news yesterday, as someone leaked a carefully staged, high-res photo of the new Jags uniforms. I dunno, looks like it could be a sophisticated Photoshop job, but let's assume it's legit until proven otherwise. And boy howdy, are those revolutionary or what?! The two jerseys on the left are practice jerseys (big day for those yesterday, eh?). As for the other three, looks like they're adding a black jersey this season, and the other two look basically unchanged. Which is exactly what their equipment manager said would be the case more than seven months ago.
Meanwhile, it's now being reported that the Seahawks will have a gray alternate jersey, which continues the trope of the most unlikely trendy color ever. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/seahawks/2017869794_hawk30.html I will presumably get a better look at these uniforms — and all the other NFL uniforms for 2012 — at the Nike unveiling event next Tuesday. There's some chatter that certain teams may show their new jerseys on their web sites at midnight on Saturday (although I'm also hearing that this may only apply to non-jersey merch). If that's the case, Phil will have coverage of it on Sunday and will update that coverage throughout the day if additional designs are revealed.
Tuesday's unveiling event, incidentally, will take place in Brooklyn, not Manhattan. This means, among other things, that I will probably be the only person in attendance who traveled to the event by bicycle.
