With a new coaching regime that represents a clean break from the old Houston regime, is it now time to update the Titans uniforms?
Ever since the hiring of Ken Whisenhunt the fanbase of the Titans has been buzzing with excitement for what the future might hold for our boys in the two-toned blue. The firing of Mike Munchak and the ousting of all but a few of his staff means that there has finally been a clean break from the Houston Oiler's era of the franchise and the team can now find a new identity for itself. Although I have long been a fan of the Titans uniforms after seeing some of the updated uniforms of other NFL and College teams, it makes me wonder what other options we could all enjoy watching the Titans play in every sunday. After scouring the internet, here were a few ideas that others have come up with and my personal thoughts on them:
Helmet: I absolutely love the idea of using the flames part of our logo in the uniform and in this version of the Titans uniform it uses them on both the helmet and the pants. Needless to say our current helmets are pretty bland but if you would use the design shown here I think it would be a huge upgrade as far as looks go.
Jersey: I like the idea of using the red from our logo in our uniforms and think that it was done well here.
Pants: As stated earlier, I love the idea of using the flames in our uniforms and at first glance I think these pants look pretty sweet.
Helmet: Nothing bad to say about the helmet, I just think it looks great.
Jersey: First and foremost I know it needs to be pointed out that Locker's number is actually 10 but the guy who came up with this uniform isn't a Titans fan so I ask for y'all to ignore that part. Although I like the idea of trying to use the alternate sword logo in a more prominent way on the uniform, I don't really like using it for the whole shoulder as shown here. Also, I think I would like to see the Jersey remain two-tone blue in some way as I think that is a huge part of what identifies us.
Pants: I like the idea of using the flames on the pants but I would want to see them actually on someone to get a final judgement as I am worried they might look kind of silly and unprofessional in person.
Helmet: Besides having the Flame design on it that I love, I like that this helmet is the light blue color instead of our current white helmets.
Jersey: Very simple design here but I like that it still has the two-toned blue color scheme.
Pants: I like pairing light-blue pants with the light-blue jerseys, other than that the pants are very simple.
Helmet: Can't find anything I don't like about the helmet except to maybe make the flames a little bit bigger to take up more space on the sides like in Option 1.
Jersey: Way too simple design is my only complaint. The whole purpose of redesigning the uniforms would be to update them and make them more interesting, not less.
Pants: Same complaint as Jersey, to simple for a redesign.
Helmet: I once again love the flame design as well the blue color of the helmet
Jersey: I like these jerseys simply because they are almost exactly the same as we have with a few minor tweaks
Pants: I like the idea of utilizing a different color for the pants besides blue or white. Adds something different than what we have seen before and I feel like this silver color works with the two-toned blue well.
Helmet: Nothing wrong with it in my opinion.
Jersey: Not much to complain about with the Jersey except that once again it isn't really much of a redesign which isnt a bad thing but I would have liked to see more tweaks to the uniform to set it apart.
Pants: I would like to see possibly the two-toned blue stripes down the sides (like we have on the current pants) in order to better tie the pants together with the jerseys
Helmet: I don't really like anything about the helmet honestly.
Jersey: I like that it incorporates the two-toned blue color-scheme throughout.
Pants: Interesting new design of the pants side stripe and I think it could look good in person
Helmet: Colors are awful on this helmet, from the teal visor to the color-scheme of the Logo. Also hate that it is black (or maybe a super-dark navy?)
Jersey: I don't like any of the color schemes presented except the middle top one. Also, I would have liked to see a full-color sword logo on the sleeve (just like the current uniforms) instead of the just a two-toned one. Also, the font for the numbers is just hideous, so yeah, overall not a good jersey option
Pants: I like the no design of the side stripe, but I think what might improve it would be if you added some red trim to the stipe or just something else to make it pop a little more
Helmet: I like the use of the red stripes down the middle but besides thats it is almost the same as our current helmets.
Jersey: I like this Jersey alot because it is un upgrade from the current Jersey, but not a huge departure from our current Jersey. I like the incorporation of red as an accent as well as the faded Sword logo on the undersleeve
Pants: As you can only see the top of the pants its hard to judge but I like the red belt and it looks like there is some sort of red design on the side which I think would be cool to have.
Helmet: Nothing I can think of except that I am a fan of a color helmet, not white.
Jersey: As much I like having red in the Jersey I don't think the red blur in the shoulders is the way to go as it looks silly.
Pants: I don't have anything bad to say about the pants mainly because not much of them can be seen.
Overall I think that making some upgrades to the uniform would be a good idea but the upgrades I would want to see would be more tweaks than major overhauls. Some of the changes I would like to see would be a new helmet design that used the flames on a colored helmet (option 3 is by far my favorite helmet), incorporation of red in the jersey and/or pants as an accent and a cool texture design to the player's numbers on the jerseys (similar to what the Seahawks have). Those minor changes could take the Titans uniforms to the next level and really make them stand out.
