of course man. Nike is just the distributor and maker of the uniform, not the owner of the brand. The teams and the league are the only ones with say on the logos. Getting worked up for no reason. All uniform changes will be minimal outside fabric and nike symbol.
Now they can come up with creative fan gear, t-shirts, jackets, etc. That is different, and what I am more looking forward to.
That's pretty much what a lot of teams foreboded, only thing changing will be the fabric/Nike jersey design style. -Aka return of the v-neck.
-The fabric change will also be the only present/significant 'appearance change', because the fabrics Nike uses on their jerseys/uniforms are more natural in appearance, and not cheap polyester mesh. The material used on the pants will also make them appear more "khaki" as originally intended from the start within the 2009 design template (Reebok's mesh + plus stretching distorted the colors, and made our pants appear mustard/lime green at times in appearance on HD television cameras).
Nike will be the best thing to happen to the NFL in ages.

Other than it, it's same ole same ole (which nobody can complain about, cause we went through hell just to get these gorgeous duds back).
weren't you the one all excited the other day saying the the uni from 1990-1994 was coming back?
if they do get a "motto" for the jerseys they should at least stand out from other teams and honor the fans on the jersey: "FOREVER FAITHFUL" would be nice...
(or if you prefer Latin, "SEMPER FIDELIS", but i think we'd need the Marine Corps' permission ....coincidentally "Semper Fi" could be the only thing that "S.F." really stands for after the Santa Clara move )
