Nike has revealed the new NFL Nike Elite 51 uniform design for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the upcoming season.

Quote:
The base uniform color has been energized with richer pewter, juxtaposed with a brighter, more vibrant shade of "Buccaneer Red". In homage to the Buccaneers' early uniforms, the look also features "Bay Orange" as a new primary trim color and accent on both the jersey and the pants. Tampa Bay also becomes the first NFL franchise to incorporate a revolutionary reflective chrome border around the numbers on the front, back and shoulders. The chrome border incorporates a technologically advanced reflective coating that adds a new dimension, increased readability and a unique glow to the numbers.

Custom name and number fonts feature beveled edges inspired by historical Buccaneer blade carvings, echoing the modern industrial design inspiration. The team's white jerseys sport pewter sleeves and shoulders with red numbers, while the red jerseys also feature pewter sleeves and shoulders but with white numbers on the body and red numbers on the shoulders-- adding an extra element of energy to the evolved Buccaneer identity.

Your thoughts?

That horrendous get up looks like something that belongs in the XFL or Arena League.

Nike should have their contracts for both the NFL and NCAA terminated. They have destroyed the uniforms of so many teams.

They look way too busy. Take the pewter off of the jersey and just leave it on the pants and it'd be alright.

Broncos have been rumored to be a future guinea pig for Nike uniforms, hope it never happens.

I wouldn't have too much of a issue with those uniforms if they didn't have the digital clock inspired numbers.

This is a major downgrade from the Buccaneers' previous uniform set, IMO.

I think its strange that they look more like the falcons now.

I think it looks more like the Cardinals. I can't believe that the NFL is going to allow that number font. What was wrong with the previous Tampa Bay uniforms? They were some of my favorite in the NFL.

And what is with the flag on the helmet, are they planning to use the blimp POV more this season?

I'll wait until I see it on the field, but I don't think they look too bad. The orange trim around the shoulders looks kinda strange to me, but we'll see.

I'm a little nervous to see the red jerseys now. Apparently they'll be red with the same pewter shoulders going on in this one, and then white numbers. Hard to imagine how that will look.

Nothing says pirates like calculator digits! I actually love the design and color scheme, It's just those numbers...
 
# 11 TarHeelbred33 @ 03/03/14 11:31 AM
Color scheme is good but the overall design is horrendous. I am all for redesigning logos/unis...but the NFL shouldn't stoop to NCAA levels like this.

The teams approve any designs that are used, so blame them for not having working eyes.

I like them too, though I'm wondering what the alternates look like.

Just leave it alone!!

I....Well they could've done a lot worse but it looks like they took a LOT of elements from the late '90s/early '00s and slapped it on here. At least it's coordinated but meh, not the biggest fan.

Considering that the Broncos were the first team to really be "swooshified" I think it's only fitting that they go through the guinea pig process again.
