For a team that's traditional and conservative, the Giants have had more changes to their logo than one would expect relative to the rest of the NFL.

The Cowboys, the all-hype, flashy organization, however, have had just one minor change to the logo.

Interesting.

I don't understand why some of them are football helmets. Are they implying that their football helmets had little football helmets on them?

the logo was their helmet. the logo is what the helmet looked like. Like the Browns today.

Also, the cowboys had one logo in their beginning that was hideous.

No logo appeared on their helmets until the old "ny" (I think in 1961?). The Giant QB behind the skyline was introduced in the 50s but never used on the unis, and I think they tweaked it when they moved from the Polo Grounds to Yankee Stadium.

The capital disco NY came when they were homeless (some funky overdesign of the unis IMO, added white stripes next to the red, etc.). NJ wouldn't allow any form of "NY" in the Meadowlands so they were forced into the <u>Giants</u> script.

When they did the throwbacks in 1994 NJSEA eased up and allowed it on the unis but not on the field.

Over time with Wellington's influence they eventually relented on that too but I believe it could be in the end zones but not midfield.

So glad it's over, I think the current unis are the right ones and should stay timeless.

Agree SweetZombie as you stated. I also like the current design and hope it remains.

As many already know, the Giants are the only team today that was one of the original teams that started the NFL in 1925, so on longevity alone, I would expect more changes . The Cowboys are a much younger team, starting in 1960 and while they changed cities were not subjected to different state regs.

Lets hope they stick with the NY. It is a good classic look.

I agree....I am not a fan of the this modern crap that Nike has prototyped. Or at least what has been shown. At then end of the day it doesnt matter what the unis look like it matters if the team wins and unis will not help that in the least. </P>

Seeing as the Giants have the final say on uniform and logo design, you don't have to worry about Nike reinventing the wheel with them.
Other than the addition of the Nike tick, I don't think there'll be much difference at all.

^this

and they should never change a thing about what they have now

no corny GIANTS written across the helmet...hated when they did that and couldnt wait to see it go

no numbers outlined in blue that makes them look as outdated as a pair of purple cross colors overalls with one strap down and a flat top fade

no blue pants ...ugh...hated that as well

just leave the classic alone

it came back to its roots for a reason

at least put GIANTS on the chest again. having ny on the helmet and jersey is redundant

I was way too young during the GIANTS helmet days, but I actually think they looked pretty cool. I love the ones we have now too though.

Uhhhhh the Giants have been around 35 YEARS longer than the Cowboys. Do you think that may have something to do with the number of changes the Giants have had vs. the Cowboys?

I think simple works best when it comes to logos - the ny is great.

the "ny" logo is great; the GIANTS one is weak.

still think our road uni's are ugly no matter how successful theyve been in them.

and O.T. the bears logo is lame. it's a ripoff of other logos and with a cool name like the bears maybe they sould have stuck with actually having a bear incorporated in the main logo.

I loved the "Giants" on the helmet along with white facemask and white pants. Looked more intimidating than what we have now.

Do YOU want to see the giants looking like the cowgirls?

Although I think it would be funny if they made that switch and then wore away unis whenever the cowboys came to town... the cowboys would have to wear that dark navy blue travesty while the giants kick the cowgirls butts in their own unis...

The only change I would like to see is white pants for the home uniforms. I like the road uniforms as they are.

The current away jersey may have a tad too much red for some peoples taste.


As for the Cowboys unis---the Giants away uni never looked like the Cowboys white jersey.


But hey I'm pretty much ok with the current road unis, just as long as we don't see those red alternates ever again---LOL!!!
