    Photo shopey people, please make this happen if you have a few moments to spare. i tried, but it keeps coming out looking like something from Tecmo bowl (capturing the bling factor of that paint job is beyond my limited skillset).

    The Photoshop attempt could very well produce a helmet that looks cool and amazing as a stand-alone thing. But it would look seriously goofy when combined with the rest of the uniform.

    From danny oneil's chat...

    -I don't know when they will be announced.


    -I have heard that there will be new uniforms.


    -That's about it.


    -A fellow on Twitter today who sounded very much like he knew what he was talking about indicated the helmets will remain blue.


    -I've heard that the uniforms will be different, but not dramatically different. In effect, that the changed from silver helmets to the current blue was much more dramatic than the change that is expected this time.

They should be working this into a frenzy with weekly teasers... or by just revealing the uni's. We'll be too busy talking draft in April!

  • The Seahawks' colours actually have meaning, unlike a lot of teams. The blue represents water, the green represents forest, and the silver represents salmon. The colours affirm the team's PNW ties.

    I like the current uniforms well enough, but we need to bring back the silver.

  • Yeah I have to say I am all for bringing back the silver as long as it isn't that flat, grey from the 70's/80's. My concept is close to what I wouldn't mind seeing...Make the blue a deep blue, the green a deep green, put that bird prominently back on the sleeves (a nice nod to yester-year) and I think we could have some sweet uniforms.

    We need a seahawk totem pole outside of c-link. I wonder if we could even do that? that would be cool to pay tribute to the native american culture in this area seahawk style.

    Ive always liked the practice uni color better than the gameday color and Ive always wondered why they wouldn't use that color instead? it a lot sharper in my opinion.

    Agree - not a fan of navy blue overall but if it was paired with our current Seahawk Blue helmet that would be a good combo.

    More green also.

    Nothing would make me laugh harder then if Tarvaris Jackson starts every game next season while wearing virtually the same jersey as we've had, with nothing different but a Nike swoosh.

    The Seahawk is already done much in a totem style, which does pay tribute to the area and it should. Seattle itself was named after a Chief.

    I'm not talking about adding something major. Maybe the stripe down the pants or any stripes at all could be done totem style. If we're wanting to set our unis apart from the rest of the league that would be a great way to pay tribute to the city/chief/native influence of the area and I absolutely think it could be done in a subtle manner.

  • Basically what you do is take the stripe down the pants and replace it with a stripe full of repeated styles of Totem Seahawks. The stripe would still be there....it would just be better. Obviously leave the totem head figure out so it can remain a stripe.

    Part of what makes those Nike concept things look cool is the fact they mimic a photo with a foggy background and ridiculously low light. They can be really vague with colors that way.


    It's kinda like the political poles that have some guy running against an anonymous Republican or Democrat, as opposed to running against someone specific. It might be good for the image, but the reality is far less attractive.

    Maybe a whole new name, and everything. We could be like the Browns and name the team after our owner.

    The Seattle Allens.

    The logo would be a giant $, with Seattle written "$eattle." We could probably even incorporate Allen wrenches somehow. I am a freakin' genius.

    Agreed. Though I'm deathly afraid the Hawks plan on going gaudy, with some stupid feathers on the shoulders and sleevehawks. I HATE sleevehawks.

  • I'm going to have a good chuckle when the new uniforms are released and we see how marginal the difference is. This has got to be the 50th multi-page thread of people pontificating on all the crazy possibilities and posting their goofy looking project runway auditions. So much hub-hub. And in the end, I'm betting all that changes is things like striping and trim effects.

  • calm down everyone...

    Anyway: I suspected at the time — and have been saying ever since — that Nike “changing the NFL jersey dramatically” would mostly be about tailoring and fabrication, not about graphics. And now the NFL has confirmed that. Here’s the key passage from that article, in a quote from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy:

    Logos are controlled by teams and the NFL. That will not change. Teams have to apply to league to make changes to logos and colors. We anticipate new uniform technology (i.e., performance-driven, lighter materials). That’s what Nike’s [Charlie] Denson was referring to in his interview in 2010 regarding changes.
