Hawks Unis - Do some of you still hate them?

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • I am a uni fan and have followed changes on http://www.sportslogos.net/ for years.

    The all blue look at home has grown on me, I do not think we should wear it outside of Seattle. it is very unique to us. other teams try and fail that look. Especially sharp on rainy gray days.

    I would like to see more variety in our combinations. White top over grey more often, all white more often, blue top over grey (best), blue top over white on hot early preseason days maybe, grey top over blue, maybe some experimentation with blue tops over green pants, green tops over blue pants, etc.

    We should still wear blue over blue for maybe 50% of the home games, and all home play-offs. IMHO.

    I do miss the gunmetal blue of the Holmgren era, but without the shiny reebok fabric it will never look right if brought back. Maybe someday we go back to silver helmet and pants, but fabric and uni design would need to change away from the stretch poly fabric they use now.

  • I'm a big fan of the wolf grey to the point I would like to see that become our away strip, phasing out the white so we could have a throwback instead of an alternate. Silver helmet would be required to make the throwback work.

    It's really loud, yes. I will say that the defense seem to play lights out in those things though.

    They shoulf change the green to exactly the same color as grass/turf. It would be better for pass coverage anyway. lol j/k

    So lights out that Sherman was gone forever lol. Those things look like arena league football/XFL uniforms.

  • I hate the pants side design. Too much going on for the eyes. Would have looked much better if it was just a stripe going down

  • I love the current uniforms. My only knock is the same as the one I had when they were revealed: I miss the Hawk on the sleeve. If they incorporated that I think the uniforms would be perfect.

    I like silver helmets too, but I think they might clash with the current uniforms. If they did an overhaul I would like to see silver helmets return.

  • I like the current uniforms better than the Hasselbeck era uniforms, but I still like the old school gray pants, blue shirt and traditional Hawk emblem on the helmet.

  • Still don't like the blue jersey with the dayglow-swoosh highlighting a Nike advertising billboard instead of a Hawk on the sleeve or the blue/blue uniform.

    The Blue Pants and White jersey combo is the best looking away uniform we have ever had, and my favorite of the current generation. Glad they won the Owl XLVIII in it.

    Color rush green should be eradicated as if it were polio and all evidence it ever existed should be erased.
    There should be penalties to referring to color rush even in historical context.

  • ^^^ Throwback Thursdays would be great.

    And very glad color Rush is dead. A lot of us colorblind 9ers fans were going whole games not being able to make out 9ers player’s numbers and just being really lost.

  • I get that the concussion suit prohibits a lot of creativity from teams for throwbacks and the like.. but you would think in 2018 the technology would be there to have a whole gamut of different unis (a la the NBA) for teams to wear during the year.. or at the least sell said products to the fans (how awesome would it be to be able to customize a throwback uni with any name and number?)

    The NFL lags so far behind the other leagues in this respect and it blows my mind.

  • Regarding throwbacks being impossible, just wrap the helmets. Its not that complicated.

    Or just look at the college game and see if they have a higher rate of concussions. Many of the larger programs have 3 or more different helmets.

  • I loved the new Unis when I fist saw them in person. I felt that the unveil was unbelievably horrible. They looked purple, and didn't have fan fair. It should have been a huge event.
