I think it would look good if they'd have gone all gold. That would be a good combo with that black and teal of their uniform color. The teal and gold may have been a good look. In it's current form I don't like it at all.

To me, the Jags helmets still look IN-COM-PLETE.

They still look (to my non-professional eye) like a half-baked paint job by Earl Sheib Auto Painting -- when he was still in business!

I did not do this, wish I had, but still.....

For those of you who say that I have way too much time on my hands.......




Someone outdid themselves, and for any other star wars fans, the Redskins one made me almost fall over laughing

I like 'em, but I'm in favor of anything that will yank on the traditionalists.

The helmet design change came about at the same time so many motorcycle helmets, vehicles and motorcycles were going to that flat black (matte) look which I could never warm up to. I think the Jaguars wanted to get a bit of that trend in their design.

Their helmets are black in front and gold in back. Wouldn't that make it just a slight bit easier for the defense secondary to determine which direction the QB is looking?
I want to say this as a Jags fan. I get annoyed when people call the Jacksonville Jaguars uniforms ugly. I think they are pretty stylish. The problem is many people are old school and dont like change or new things. Another issue is as the OP points out many people rarely see the Jaguars play because of other factors, so many people dont even know what a Jacksonville Jaguar uniform looks like. They have had those helmets for a few years now. For the record his my list of UGLY NFL uniforms

GreenBay Packers
Washington Redskins
Cleveland Browns
Chicago Bears
Buffalo Bills

My List of best looking uniforms outside of the Jaguars

Cincinnati Bengals
Oakland Raiders
Carolina Panthers
Atlanta Falcons
Baltimore Ravens
Philadelphia Eagles

All very stylish and clean.

For the record; I don't mind the helmet. Seems anything that deviates Packers/Steelers/Browns type designs are unpopular with the elder crowd.
This is what I mean. Those helmets are not new, the uniform is not new, people are just seeing it now because of the playoffs. If the Jags keep making the playoffs get used to the Khan jerseys.
