GIANTS' UNIFORMS UNLIKELY TO UNDERGO SERIOUS CHANGES AT THE HANDS OF NIKE IN 2012 (http://www.giants101.com/2012/02/23/new-york-giants-uniform-unlikely-to-undergo-serious-changes-at-the-hands-of-nike-in-2012/)

"At the inception of the 2012 league year, Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) will take over uniform rights for the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) from Reebok.
It has been established that Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) will aim to have a unique look for the threads, as
they have stated themselves.

Haynes (UNITED STATES - Tags: SPORT FOOTBALL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/))</div>Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) CEO Mark
Parker says the company will tweak (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/02/22/nike-plans-to-have-some-fun-but-respect-traditions-with-nfl-gear/) uniforms, but "respect the teams traditions."
<blockquote>


"We’re actually going to have some fun, but respect the traditions of these
teams at the same time,” Parker said.</p></blockquote>


The New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/)
Giants have one of the most iconic and recognizable uniforms in sports.
Considering that all logo changes must pass through the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) and
management of respective teams, do not expect things to change much about the
Giants uniforms.</p>


Most of the "fun" Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) plans on having with the new uniforms will likely
come at the expense of the "third" or "alternate" jerseys of respective teams.
The New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/)
Giants and San Francisco 49ers are the league's only teams without a third or
alternate jersey (currently).</p>


The Giants have their basic blue and white home and away jerseys. The team
had red jerseys as a tip of the hat to the 1950s teams but stopped utilizing
them after the 2006 season.</p>


Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) is
unlikely to make very many changes to the threads of a team whose uniform and
tradition has been around as long as the Giants.</p>


One possibility is that Nike (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nike/) could convince the Giants to add a 3rd or alternate
jersey to their collection. Perhaps a tip of the hat to the 1980s and
90sjerseys with the white pants and the "Giants" logo on the helmet."</p>

They should change our road uniforms. terrible.
I like the plain blue we have now. if they change a little bit, i'd be ok with that though.</P>


it'd be cool to have some sort of semi-throwback as an alternate though.</P>

I actually love the road uniforms. It might be because we've won 2 Superbowls and 2 NFC Championship games in them, but it's the home uniforms that I'd like to see changed, namely the pants. The blue goes better with white pants.

nah if they change it i say lose the stripes and change the pants color to a blue. we are big blue, and our road uniforms lack blue except for the helmet and one little stripe on the pants!

As long as they do make us look like the University of Oregon I am o.k. with a little tweek but please do not mess up such a classic look.

we may have an iconic uniform, but i wouldn't call it one of the most recognizable in all of sports.

The road uni's would look cool if they did away with the grey pants and used the same blue as on the helmets.

I liked the way the colors popped in 2007, since then, the colors are somewhat dull.

They also took the red reebok tag away for the home jerseys, which I liked.

they had those uniforms before they were ever called big blue

and they are not going anywhere

sorry fellas

also I hate the nickname big blue because it was first used by the Dodgers

I dont want any regurgitated nickname

The white away jerseys grew on me after the first year it was brought back. It's all about tradition and with these jerseys there has been a lot of notable wins. Most practical thing to do is go back to the 80s navy blue uniforms as alternates. I'd love it.

I hope they bring back the road jerseys we wore in the early 2000s. They were much better than what they have now. Here's Warner's old jersey:

(I tried putting in photo but it was too big).

Also, I really hope they don't bring back the red alternates. They were ugly. I wouldn't mind playing one game a year though in throwbacks from the 80s though.

Here's a nice gallery (http://history.giants.com/page/New+York+Giants+Uniforms) of all the uniforms the Giants have worn since 1925.
