Nike Pro Combat NFL Uniforms: What the League's Uniforms Could Look Like in 2012
In 2012 Nike will replace Reebok as the provider for NFL jerseys. Nike is the main provider and has designed jerseys for several college football teams, including Oregon. They had their Nike Pro Combat campaign in 2009 where they released jerseys for almost every college football team, and now Nike is coming to the NFL where they will be responsible for new designs for every team.
The Nike style is often debated, but it will indeed mark a whole new era in the timeline for NFL jerseys.
Previews of the jerseys have been circulating the Internet recently. Though these are fake jerseys, they are still fun to imagine as the real deal.
This design keeps the flamboyant colors that Miami is often associated with, but at the same time is able to make it somewhat fearsome.
New England Patriots
A nice job of incorporating the patriotic theme into the jersey. The American flag on the sides is an insane touch that makes this jersey pop out.
New York Jets
It's amazing how adding black to a jersey can make it so much more intimidating.
Using their throwback logo, this Broncos uniform changes things up tremendously.
Tim Tebow will rep it well.
Kansas City Chiefs
Not much to do to make the McDonald's-like color scheme of the Chiefs look appealing, but this design does indeed make it somewhat better. The choice of a more vibrant yellow adds a little more zing.
The color scheme chosen by Al Davis is always one which provokes fear. With this new design it looks even more scary than it does today.
San Diego Chargers
Like the Chiefs, this design uses a more vibrant yellow, allowing for a much more amazing design.
The black shoulders combined with the purple makes this one of the most intimidating jerseys of the potential release.
Dang. The tiger design is absolutely, positively, undeniably incredible.
Poor Cleveland Browns can't catch a break anywhere.
What's impressive about this design is how the red and blue from the old helmet is incorporated into the sleeve.
With such an extravagant jersey today, there is surprisingly nothing too impressive about this one.
Not too much of a change for the Colts' uniform. Hopefully their record will have a bigger change.
I don't know how I feel about the leopard design.
In my opinion, the Titans currently have one of the worst uniforms in the NFL, but this new design does everything to incredibly upgrade the Titans' uniform.
Its amazing just how turning the white into dark grey can make a uniform look so much better.
New York Giants
The additions of the black and red add to a pretty boring design.
Similar to the feathers on the Oregon Ducks' uniform, the addition of the Eagle feathers on the shoulder makes this jersey look unbelievable.
That helmet is such an increase from the current one. The additions of feathers on uniforms make them seem so much more realistic.
The blue and black background makes the orange pop out, adding a little more fire than what we see today.
I am simply loving the bright yellows that are being used.
Also look at the horns on the sleeves.
New Orleans Saints
Similar look, but the addition of the gold on the shoulders makes this design even more amazing.
San Francisco 49ers
Similar look, still impressive.
Again, the darkness adds intimidation.
Personally, I like the current ones better, but these are still pretty amazing.
St. Louis Rams
Not extremely different, but the uniform still keeps the intimidation factor.
Now, if only the Rams were actually intimidating...
Loving the neon green as the secondary color. I hope there will be an even cooler alternate jersey with the neon green as the base.
Very similar—nothing much to say.
This one can go either way; a handful of people will love this, while others will vomit from it.
I would think Nike would try to incorporate the mane of a lion into this design somehow—guess not.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I love the use of the throwback logo; a good look for Tampa.
