Love the all black look.

Any thoughts on the black pant, gold jersey combo? They're interesting, I like them and dislike them at the same time.

This is an interesting piece of information... when we wear our away jerseys I've always preferred the gold pants to the black. I think the fact that the helmet is gold is the reason why.

I'm not a huge fan of the all black home uniforms - I think it's because the NFL requires the socks to be "mostly white" and that ruins the look. If you could have all black socks it would look pretty sharp. I don't know if you guys remember but back in like 2002 we had a meaningless Sunday Night home game against the Redskins and both Joe Horn and Ricky Williams wore all black socks and shoes (even though the team was wearing white socks and shoes that year) and took the fine just because it looked cooler.

I like the black unis also but I think they could use a little something

I used the uniform editor in Madden to come up with this
I would personally like to see them do something along these line with the black unis...



I also like the gold ones but I think they would look a lot better with some black on them like this...



I know it's only wishful thinking but it doesn't hurt to dream

I wonder if there would be any way we could turn the helmet black?

we should just copy Vandy's uniforms.

They are so sharp - they use like 12 different variations - black jersey, white jersey, gold jersey with black pants, white pants, and gold pants.

Mix those babies up and you'd never wear the same combo more than twice a season.

I think that combo could only work if the helmet is black and the fleur is gold. That would look SHARP!

the gold jersey / black pants combo would look a lot better now that the team wears black shoes.

back in 2002 the bright white shoes looked freaking RIDICULOUS.

IMHO the gold helmet is fine - that's not what threw it off, it was the shoes.

I'm talking about getting a black helmet for the all black jerseys. That'd look tight.

You know what your right
Now that I see it
I must say that would look sweet

I don't know about the all black unis with the black helmet
and I'm not saying that because I don't think it would look good but just the opposite I personally think it would look awesome
but I think in the end it would end up looking like the Falcons unis and I would hate for us to be mistaken like that
