THE NFL's 2012 NIKE UNI APOCALYPSE!!!

As for Seattle's unis I think the away is pretty good... don't like all those flower things or whatever they are inside the numbers and on the side of the legs and around the neck though. The helmet I think that strip of flowers (or whatever that is)... should be way thinner. The Seahawk logo in the back touching together is not good. I think bringing back the grey was one of the things they did right.



Does anyone actually know what that U type shaped flower thing is? It looks like something on Super Mario Bros 3. And they put in on the helmet, the side of the pants, inside the numbers, around the back of the neck...

i HAVE it!! secawks are subtly introducing soccer-style brand name sponsors on their jersey, and they dug up and old Niners favorite just for the honor....



....(as in "Monster Park")
Dr. Bill Walsh, go look up I edited it and added a pic of it up close and the SMB flower. Seriously though, I'd rather see 1,000 nike logos inside the numbers, etc than that flower thing. Who gets paid 6 figures to have a sweet job like that and f it up?

You could tell in that interview with Alex from the video on our website (courtesy of NFL.com) that he was really thrilled about the 'fly-wire' collars; almost 98% of the time in almost every game you'd see Alex's shoulder pads constantly popping out after a pressure/grab/sack.

-Those Reebok modernist jerseys were just horrible, no support around the front collar, which was intentionally built for opposing players not being able to get a grab upon it for expanded leverage, but in return it made the jersey more loose/unstable around the pads.

I think the new Seahawks uniform is 100% better looking then their past uniforms, the helmet especially in a drastic improvement.

I actually kind of like the new retro-esq logo (the return of 'ole grey'), as it was sort of in demand from most of the older generations of the fanbase.

-Only thing bugging me is those ugly-ass Oregon Ducks numbers; only thing holding it back from being non-NCAA like... but then again their head coach is still trapped there mentally...
the "U" supposedly comes from Northwest Native American art

Yep, like I said putting aside the designs Nike improved the uniforms by a lot. Reebok has really made any strides in the decade or how ever long they have had the rights to the unis. Was Adidas before them? nobody has really improved the uniform that much compared to what Nike just did.

Thanks... , Jersey incorporates graphics inspired by northwest coastal Indian art.

Still, so they go modern as heck but want to incorporate that... Nike logos or even if they wanted to go way out there pics of the seattle space needle would have been better IMO.

There's a lot of horrible 49ers fans that deep down want us to be the West-Bay Raiders.

Here is a post from a Seahawks fan....

Did a little bit of research behind the design. The "feathers" are a Northwest tribal symbol for "hawk wings". There is 12 down each pant leg to represent the 12th man. Also 12 on either side of the collar for the same reason.
