The uniforms will be the same people, but the fabric mesh will be plain CLOTH once again (judging by the leaked Dolphins jersey's fabric), like the old days. None of that metallic polyester mesh crap. -Our jerseys will have the same material Montana and Young had (before Nike lost out to Reebok after 1995). Very excited about this.
When there are tens of millions of merchandising dollars involved, the NFL is going to try to do something different. Maybe not overnight, the change will be gradual, and some of the old guard franchises that can afford tradition will stick to old threads, but you can bet a bunch of others will break out the weird and maybe even the pleasantly original.
Look for something you see in the NBA a bit more in the NFL. Teams changing up the look more often to get their fans to buy more crap.
