In April 2012, Nike takes over the apparel contract (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/13/sports/football/13nike.html) from Reebok. And on the day that the switch was announced in October 2010, Nike Brand president Charlie Denson told Darren Rovell of CNBC that significant adjustments are coming.</P>

Yeah, hopefully it's just the material and this "new technology" Nike is talking about. I really wouldn't like any changes to the actual look of the jersey (love the old 80's uniforms though).

that kinda sucks, i have a 2000 and 2003 game issued jersey, and the 2003 reebok one is vastly superior to the 2000 nike one. the materials are a whole lot thicker, and everything is heavily stitched. the nike one's sleeve area is really flimsy, feels like the crappy screen printed jersey sleeves, and the jersey mesh is thinner.


that said, wouldn't mind if the giants wore these as alternates.

i hope nike brings back the little red triangle on the jersey, really the only thing missing. the away jerseys never even look pink anymore, that was the only problem i had with those. in the last superbowl, everything looked pink lol

An alternative would be entertaining yet if they reinvent the whole uniform they are really screwing with the brand.

Maybe a team like Seattle or ATL would get their look tampered with a bit...us not so much.

I find it hard to believe Nike is going to have the final say on the jerseys. I'm sure if the team thinks the jersey looks ridiculous then alterations will be made. I would expect the Giants uniforms to look not much different than they have now or in the past.

Our uniforms will be the same next year. Except on the sleeves the Nike swoosh will be there rather than the reebok logo.

However, I wouldn't mind a slightly altered look. Bringing back the white pants with same striping would be sweet. And why not wear the 80s/90s jerseys for a game next year.

they can change uniforms all they want ....but until the owners sign off on them none of their designs stand

there is no way John Mara will sign off on anything his father would not approve of

my money says the uniforms will look exactly as they do right now just with a Nike symbol replacing the Reebok logo

To be honest wit you, I don't think Nike can do a whole lot, cosmetically with the jerseys. I mean what can they do? Were one of the only teams in the NFL that don't have two-tone color jerseys.

I have a slight feeling they will add the "NY" logo to the sleeve. That, or possibly make our jerseys two-toned

Here's the pro combat concepts. Just art atm but I think I'd like 'em overall if they looked close to these. Although the Giants one is my least favorite lol...

They aren't fake, they're "concept art". There's a difference. The pro combat line is already being introduced, look at Oregons uni's...They are the "Nike Pro Combat Uniforms" here's a vid-

http://www.goducks.com/mediaPortal/player.dbml?catid=1401&amp;id=794209

Also Nike already sells the pro combat line by itself. http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?l=shop,pwp,c-1+100701/hf-10002+12002+4294967114+4294967196+50144/t-Men%27s_Nike_Pro_Combat/

The only thing I would like to see changed is white pants with the home jersey, but that won't happen. I never liked the gray/blue combo.

Hope you are correct. A one or two game alternative would be ok but the brand is the brand. I don't think fans want NIKE hacking it up.

Personally, besides the Georgia uniform, I think the NCAA uniforms have been a putrid looking.

even if theyre not fake, 90% of these will never be worn by an NFL player. Good luck telling Dallas that's their new uniform lol

I would actually like it if we went back to the 2000 era away jerseys, as you have picture atop. I think they look so much better than our current away jerseys with all of the blue trim,. </P>

If they are anything that I have seen on the internet, they are really crazy looking. They are a streamlined, slick version of what we have now but with a different font for the number, nameand the logo on the helmet and such is italic and angled. I hope this is just someone's idea I came across on the internet cause it stinks.</P>

i'm guessing they only change some of the newer teams or teams that dont have tradition in their uniforms.

So i'm guessing the entire AFC South and NFC South will have new Uni designs. but teams like the Giants, Bears, Green Bay, 49ers will stay the same.
