    Jets uniform change coming?

    With the team improving, and moving into a new Stadium, There were some rumors last year that we may be in for a complete change in the uniforms. I hope that it is not going to happen, as we have the best helmet in the NFL.

    is this finally a dead issue?

    Hope so too. While the uniform could always use a little tweaking here or there, I'd hope it stays at least 95% the way it is right now. Agreed on the helmet, a modern version of our classic original circa Super Bowl III! :yes:

    Never underestimate the desire of a businessman to make money.

    And changing the Uni's would make alot of money.

    Don't get me wrong, I agree with the "stick with the current Uni's" folks.

    My only desire is to see the 80's Uni's replace the Titans garb as our "throwback" option. That would be both money-making and (IMO) epic.

    the Parcells redo of the original Jets uni should remain untouched forever. It is a classic that doesn't need any tweaking, retouching, anything IMO

    Warfish takes the hammer and hits the nail squarely on the head.

    Agreed, I personally dislike the "re do " uni's of the 80's, 90's.

    I would be OK with them as our throw backs and dump the TITAN jerseys.

    My main question is: where did these rumors come from?

    Were they just fans on message boards talking about it?

    Honestly, I don't remember a media or rumor site talking about a change in uniform.

    I really can't understand why fans would want to see the 78-97 uniforms.

    Without question, 78-97 was the worse era in franchise history.

    Seriously. In that 20 season span the Jets had a winning record only 6 times.

    Why in God's name would anyone want to reminisce about that?

    I get it. But it's still like having nostalgia about being in a prison camp.
