The Atlanta Falcons have a new look and most people don’t seem to be on board with it. The Falcons revealed their new uniforms along with an alternate ‘ATL’ logo on Wednesday morning and the reaction on Twitter has been far from positive.
Atlanta showed off four new jersey combos and while the all-white look and throwback black top aren’t entirely awful, the other two uniform combos are rough. It also looks like they took a page out of the Titans’ playbook electing for the silver/grey facemasks on the new helmet.
A lot of folks shared the same initial reaction after seeing the new uniforms claiming that they look like something you’d see in the XFL or Arena League. The jersey that fades from black to red definitely does scream XFL as do the comically large numbers, I don’t think anyone can argue with that.
I’m not sure exactly when or why the NFL elected to put huge numbers in really shitty font on jerseys, but we need that to stop immediately. The Falcons, Buccaneers, Titans and Jags number-game is horrible.
