    So Jacksonville is getting new uniforms this season. Seems like they’ve only had their current uniforms for a few seasons now, but apparently they’ve had them for the required 5 years before doing another change. Did they update the same season Miami update theirs? If so does that mean Miami can change their uniforms for 2018 if they wanted to as well?

    Wonder what the jags will do, hopefully not something drastic

    I'm not sure on ours though, it doesnt feel like it has been five years, but has it?? I'd love to go to a throwback uni with an element of the new ones to it.

    I would like to see a combination of the old school aqua color, with the current logo.

    IMO the current uniform does a nice job with the striping on the helmet and the pants. I like that it has limited the use of orange.

    I know they’re getting rid of the two tone helmets, and bringing back alternate teal jerseys.

    Under NFL 2002 Resolution Rule G3:

    A Club may not change its regular home and away uniforms more than once every five NFL seasons, and may not change its third uniform design more than once every five NFL seasons, absent specific extenuating circumstances (e.g., Club ownership change or relocation) as determined by the Commissioner.

    But I believe we can change our uniforms for 2018, but the request had to be put in by last March, for this upcoming season.

    Let’s bring back the old logo and throwbacks.

    I preferred the old uniforms and the old logo. I'm fine with updating things ... but I'm just not enjoying the current "new" uniforms and significantly dislike the "new" logo. I realize tastes and preferences will vary, but that's my $0.02.

    I doubt we'll see another new logo, although I would welcome it. The IP costs are high. But, IMHO, the current logo branding has been less than successful, and with a new roof and potentially competitive team with a QB in his prime ... it seems like a good time for a fresh start.

    I would also really like to see orange introduced back into our uniforms as an accent color. I miss the orange. The colors/look of my avatar would be great, IMHO.

    MIAMI ISN'T CHANGING THEIR UNIFORM! THEY WOULD HAVE HAD TO NOTIFY THE LEAGUE LAST YEAR OF ANY CHANGES FOR THIS YEAR!

    This has been covered multiple times already since the season ended.

    What is the bet that Tom Coughlin ditches the really ugly (black in the front and gold in the back with the blue tongued Jaguar) helmets?

    I’m not asking if they are changing this season. I’m asking if they could have had they wanted to.

    It’s already confirmed the two tone helmets are going away.

    Of course you're probably right, but do we know for absolute sure that they didn't notify the league?...not likely, but possible. Perhaps they want to keep it a secret so not affect sales of the current stuff.

    I also want the throw backs, but it isn't going to happen.

    I'm curious about what the titans are going to do. the big rumor is they will be primary red and blue.
    I'm sure the jags are gonna go more traditional. what they have now is awful. jags and bucs probly have the worst unis in football

    God those are bad.

    They had a helmet a couple years ago that was kinda interesting, it would be black or like a dark teal / green depending on how you looked at it

    Those helmets (the black/teal helmet) with the current uniforms would have looked awesome.

    No idea how JAX has one of the coolest mascots and consistently one of the worst uniforms and helmets.

    I would have to imagine the Bucs will be banging on the NFL's uniform department door next season. Those have to be the ugliest uniforms in the history of the NFL. That is if you don't count the Steelers prison garb throwbacks.

    I wouldn't mind going back to the throwbacks once our whole thing is up after this season. At the very least, can we darken the orange we have, and/or add more of it to the uniform? I could live with that and the throwbacks 2x a year.

    I don’t care about the colors or the uniforms. But get rid of that god-awful logo. It’s the visual representation of this era of Dolphins football— ugly, faceless, and forgettable.

    Not Happenin.....

    Ross and Our FO aren't smart enough to make a BIG marketing move like this. I "PRAY" that I turn out to be dead wrong.
    Our Throwbacks are easily one of the best
    in the League.

    I've had all of the Life sapped out of me, as far as our Owner, GM, and FO making smart decisions. This is still, and always will be my team......I've just adapted to be able to learn, and be mediocre at best. Sorry for the negativity......."FIN4LIFE"!!!

    Home & Away something similar to these:

    Memories of CC84's flashes of brilliance.... I'll never forget the one handed toe tap in the back of the endzone against Houston.

    Using the old logo.... I'd like to add two alternative jerseys made from scratch. All aqua and white on aqua, or something with orange.

    Our current aqua color look like something a baby would be wearing in a nursery.

    It’s too bright. I like the white on aqua look the best because the pants are a darker shade.

    Yes sir. I still have my navy Sam Madison jersey. Pissed we never wore them.

    I have an old black Marino jersey too. Reminds me of the Canes blacked out unis.

    I wish Miami would do something drastic with the uniforms. Even if it was going back to the throwback style/colors.

    That's what happens when you're team can't put together consistent winning seasons.
