Default Cincinnati Bengals Uniforms rank....

31st out of 32 teams in the NFL! Brutal ranking by Paul Lukas from Uni-Watch, but I am pretty sure he has criticized the Bengals' uniforms for a while now....so not much of a surprise. Its pretty clear he has a hard-on for old school uniforms and all the newly designed ones are ranked fairly bad.

Here is the AFC North Blog post about it:

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...teams-uniforms

Quote:
31. Cincinnati Bengals

Last year: No. 32

Uni Watch: There's a fine line between uniform and costume, and the Bengals have been on the wrong side of it for years now. The fact that they wear Halloween colors just reinforces the point.

My comment: I would never try to argue that the Bengals have the best uniforms in the NFL. But I do like them better than the Rams and Seahawks, two teams ranked No. 21 and No. 22, respectively. At least the Bengals aren't the worst-ranked uniform like last season, so I guess that's progress.


Here is the actual Power Rankings:

http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/stor...-uniforms-1-32


Its all opinion based, I am sure some love our jerseys and some hate our jerseys. I know for a fact, we have the best helmets in the league.

Anyone know of any jersey re-designs coming up anytime soon? Trying to decide if I want to buy a jersey this year or not.

It's a uniform thread. By Jungle Noise law we have to at least once per month.

So, let's get it rolling: Keep the helmets, ditch the jerseys/pants and replace them with the '81-''96 version.

Actually, I'm pretty sure most people prefer the '97-'03 uniforms.

Nothing is coming soon. A team has to apply 2 years in advance to the nfl.

Yeah, those could work, I'd just want to go with the ones from a happier time and not the darkest days of the franchise. But, they're not bad and a definite improvement from the current ones with all that white piping

They look fine to me. Is ESPN even credible about anything that's not Jets/Cowboys related?

I don't hate our current unis, they're just a little too "busy".

It wouldn't take much to make them look better.

Don't use Halloween colors? What color does he think a Bengal tiger is? I personally love our helmets because they're the only helmet in the league that incorporates the entire helmet in the design. Just about every major college team is try to do this now and the fans love it. So, the old crotchety writers that like helmets in single colors with no decoration are a dying breed and their opinion is pointless.

I still think the practice uni's, or ones very very similar to them would be a great upgrade over the current busy looking ones. And I think all white is our best look, sad to say, followed by black on white, then white on black, and finally black on black which I dont like.

The Bengals DO have some pretty bad uniforms. Definitely some of the worst. Although, their helmet is one of the best in the league, so it balances out a bit.

Yeah same here, I like the old style pant stripes I don't care which of the past 2 styles just pick one. Maybe more black jersey/black pants with orange or white socks and orange or black socks with the white jersey and pants. That's as much color as I need. The orange jerseys sounded like a great idea and I'm still fine with them, but simple is better. Have to think the old stripes would be too much orange with an all orange old style, would it look that nuts to have white mixed into the shoulder stripes instead of black? Maybe wear new style orange as an alternate, but yea if they just went back to one of the old styles I would be fine with it.

Best helmet, not-so-good uniforms.

Add me to the list of people who liked the 97ish uniforms way better.

I don't really agree with the ranking, but the actual Uni-Watch website is really cool. I prefer it greatly over what he writes for ESPN. If you haven't already, it's worth checking out

I know its subjective, but we do not have the 2nd worst uni's in the league.... not even close.

Those power rankings are absolutely insane.

they think our uniforms are costumes...

But then since you can buy police and fireman costumes they are no longer considered men in uniforms.

I wish they would at least change the number font back to 97-03 years. I'm not much for the new look. Too round and bubbly.

I would like their older white pants with a orange streak and black stripes in it. Like shown in the picture from years ago below. But I would like to see the jersey change to the solid orange with just black stripes on the shoulder pads along with the helmet we currently have.

I love the orange jersey looks. I used to love the 80's Bronco's uniforms.
