I pick yes cuz I think they should make the jeresy's black and keep the helmet purple.

I say keep 'em also. I don't really see a reason for a change. I would hate to go away from all that purple!

I said yes, but I just want to add a little black to them. Not add a black jeresy, but just a little black to them. Thats it though.

Yeah our unis definitely need some spicing up. I like the purple, but we need to add some black or something to give us a more aggressive look. I think new jerseys might come when we get a new stadium though. When would they announce new jerseys anyways?

The ur saying no team should change jersey's... Ur right, there is no reason for change, but there is no reason to keep the old jerseys!!!

I guess it depends on what the new ones look like!!!

Here's some history the past few years.

Denver got new uniforms. Superbowl Champs
St. Louis got new uniforms. Superbowl Champs
Tampa got new uniforms. Superbowl Champs.

Coincidence? Yes, but true.

It's a little different when you have a freakin' ugly a$$ jersey like the bucs. Ours aren't that bad....even the broncos and rams were pretty ugly. So I am actually saying teams like that should definitely change, but I like the vikes' how they are. I guess change can be good though.....

I like the fact that we haven't changed them. We've had threads like this before and the teams that are in the North division all have jerseys that they've used for a long time. I like the old school stuff and not changing the jerseys!!

I picked yes but not a drastic change. I would like to see the purple go back to the darker shade for awhile like in the 70's.

Keep 'em the way they are. The uniforms are not our problem.

But, if we did change them I hope it not a total overhaul.

Besides, if they take out the Purple webby will have to change the name of the site. :lol:

we should steal the baltimore raven's dark purplish/blackish jerseys...those look intimidating, or it might just be ray lewis

VKG4LFE
03-06-2005, 08:00 PM
Yeah, I think it's the whole Ray Lewis factor that helps the ravens to be intimidating.

NO NEW JERSEYS

NO NEW HELMETS

NO NEW LOGOS.

I agree so-cal, keep things the way they are!!

Keep it...Just wouldnt be the vikes any other way...

Now that I think about it though, I'm shocked that Red didn't do something like this so he could have more apparel sales and stuff!!

Some other amazing coincidences:

Bengals changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Bills changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Jets changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Redskins changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Lions changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Seattle changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Falcons changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Oilers/Titans changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

Philadephia changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

New Orleans changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

San Diego changed their uniforms, didn't win the Super Bowl.

And, by the way, the Rams changed their uniforms the year AFTER they won the Super Bowl, and then lost.

I would say change 'em, but I am afraid that they would mess them up and just make them horrible like the Seahawks jerseys. I personally like the home jerseys just fine. Nice and sparkley....

So history has taught us if you change your uniforms your might win the SuperBowl or if you change you uniforms you might not win the SuperBowl.

Here's my plan, leave the uniforms as they are and just win a SuperBowl :salute:

JUST DONT CHANGE THE HELMITS!!!! Our helmits kick ass with the horn... best helmits in the league

I have nothing against the current uniforms, but i'd love to see them wear purple pants with them. Whenever a team's pants are the same color of the uniform, it looks so tight.

Just a thought.

What about a WHITE helmet with a PURPLE horn?

magicci

i think white helmets are ugly

KY Vike

i think we should be more concerned with other things than our uniforms.

VKG4LFE
03-06-2005, 09:37 PM
Gotta keep the purple helmets!!

Or we play like we are intimidating. I don't think that an NFL player gets intimidated by the uniforms of their opponent, but the player in the uniform.

I have never liked uni's with dark pants and a dark jersey. It has just always looked overdone to me.

Change can be good, but change for the sake of change is pointless.

If our uniforms were crappy, I could see it. They aren't.

Plus - as has been mentioned - if we altered our color scheme, we would lose "Purple Pride" and the possibility of "Purple People Eaters II".

Leave them alone. We have a darn good looking uniform as it is, why screw it up?

If teams with bad unifroms all changed then the browns wouldnt still be wearing the same jerseys. I find it so funny how people want to get rid of current jerseys yet when we get new jerseys, they all love the "throwbacks".

DrSwerve
03-07-2005, 10:20 AM
I wouldn't mind having new uniforms, but they should be "throw-back" style. The uniforms of old look far superior than the crazy weird designs and colors they're throwing together these days. It seems like uniforms are looking more like AFL or XFL than the NFL. That's not cool. The only newer uniform that looks better than the original is the Bucs'.

I say we do the following

Phase1:
Draft Mike Williams at #7.. That would give us Mike, Brian, Kevin, Pat and Moe Williams.

Phase2:
Trade everyone whos name name isn't Willams (Maybe Daunte can go to Oakland for less then he's worth?)

Phase 3:
Change the name team name to the Minnesota Williams'... This would obviously require a uniform change.


Just kidding... actually i don't want to see a uniform change... I think tradition is sometimes more important then keeping up with the latest style.

who cares about new jerseys we need quality players to wear em lol but naw i think they should just keep the same jerseys and add a solid black one for occasional games like the jags
