How does anyone older than 16 think that Nike gear is cool?
Its about marketing to the masses, and the fact is people do buy whats new.
Im excited about the Seahawks New unit, because the fans will buy em from the draft until the season. No matter how well or poorly the team performs, my Fiance will be getting a nice bonus after the season because of the jersey and New Era cap sales.
You're right, our 40 + years of losing was due to the uniform. Had nothing to do with the bad personnel decisions and coaching during that span. Look, I see what your saying but we have changed our uniform twice since Super Bowl 3( 3 times if you count adding black to the uniform in the early 90's) and it hasn't done anything but drive up merchandising sales. Plus I think our uniform is one of the best in the NFL. It's classy, and harkens back to the only time this organization has won sh*t.
I agree our current jersey is one of the best, but the league-wide opinion of the Jets doesn't match their Jersey. If we're a second class team, we can't have a first class jersey. The jersey should represent the team, we need something with a bit more punch, something more dynamic. And for those who will say that the team should rise to a first class mentality, I would have to ask you, why haven't they done so already?
