I love our current uniform, but watching the Pro bowl today I think is time for a little change.
Imagine the white pants again, would look awesome in home and away fashion...

Lol the NFC uniform looks almost exactly like the 1980s home uni... except somehow looks a little more modernized.

I don't mind the gray pants too much, but white shoes would look a lot better. Look how it made Tynes this year

And wear helmets that say GIANTS on them.

Personally I like the NY logo more.

I would be happy if they brought those jerseys back, and the white away counterparts as well.

I like the GIANTS logo. The Jets also play in NY so it's not like we're the only NY team

Forget the Jets!

I just like the NY logo. As Wellington Mara once said, it is one of the best logos in sports.

Personally I like the NY logo more.Me too. I was so happy when we returned to the classic NY logo. I understand why people may like the GIANTS logo due to the late 80s/early 90s teams that finally took us to the promise land, but they just never did it for me like the NY does.

Keep the ny. "Giants" was a fashion fad. Like when MLB went to those awful softball looking uni's in the late 70's and 80's. The Giants have a classic uniform. Let's use white pants or "Giants" logo as throwbacks a couple times a year.

The whole reason "GIANTS" was a thing was because Ed Koch was and is, in the eyes of anyone from outside NYC itself, a flaming ******* who hated NJ...

They have their own version of it and they use uppercase.

They also have NY in their primary logo

And it's not like there's no precedent for two teams having NY in their logo

The NJ Sports and Exposition Authority, which owned Giants Stadium (not the Giants) wouldn't allow any "NY" on the field or on the uniforms that's why they had to switch to GIANTS. They allowed the throwback "ny" uniforms in 2000 but still nothing on the field. Only in the final years of Giants Stadium did they relent and allow "ny" in the end zones.

Ed Krotch wouldn't allow the Giants a parade in NYC, he was very bitter that they went to the Meadowlands (although I don't remember Ed being helpful in getting a football stadium built in NYC before that). He bitterly told them to go hold a parade in the parking lot.

SOOOOO glad Bloomberg allowed parades for the 07 and 11 teams.

I seem to remember "They can parade in front of the oil drums in Moonachie"... I wasn't alive at the time but I remember seeing an article that had him saying that.

Giants could have easily stayed in NYC if they had some help (NEWS FLASH: land in NYC is bloody expensive), but nope...

Actually, in retrospect, it's good the Giants moved out of the city. Otherwise I might have grown up as (*blech*) a Jets fan...

Return of the "Giants" logo?........Absolutely NOT!!! (NY logo is classic)
Return to white pants?..........Absolutely YES!!! (grey pants are horrible)

And with this thread, consider the offseason message board topics of irrelevance officially kicked off!

I dunno... white would make it harder to get the stains out once the team starts ****ting itself during the second half of the season.

Maybe we should go with dark blue then.

Then they need to go back to the brown/tan, it will go with the ****stains.

I like the old uniforms. But I also like the uniform numbers on the shoulders, so maybe a melding of the two.

I really dont like the 80's unis or white pants. The giants should keep what they have now as the main set. I dont mind a game or two with some sort of throwback but just keep it at that.

Well if the change in uniform will ward off the mid season crap-fest, I'm ok with the white pants and numbers on the sleeves. "ny" has to stay though.

the ny should stay on the helmet, for sure. GIANTS sprawled out all over the sides isn't as good. however, it should return underneath the collar again. having ny on both the helmet and jersey is redundant

Giants should use blue pants as an all blue alternate uniform. It would look awesome.

I'd love to see a game or two with the 80s-90s gear but I do like our uniforms now.

Let the white pants stay in the 80's like all the bad hair

Yes to the white pants. Its so obviously complimentary to the rest of the uni that its crazy how we wear gray pants instead.

The gray has to be somewhere, I suppose. It's a team colour.

Sure, but its clear as day that white pants would maximize our uni's appeal. As for the 80s GIANTS across the helmet, that is not necessary I like the NY initials. But I want white pants...lol.

gray is ok for the aways, but honestly white would work better for the homes. but white shoes equalize all.
