Uniform madness, guys.

Earlier this afternoon we learned that the Jaguars have been in the design room much more than their war room. Their new uniforms were unveiled in a grand ceremony, and they’re not a puke-ish teal color. Therefore, they’re all kinds of awesome after clearing the lowest bar imaginable.

Now since secrets are obsolete here on planet Earth in the year 2013, Paul Lukas of UniWatch fame shared the new Dolphins and Vikings uniforms with the Twitters shortly before they too were officially unveiled.

So let’s start with the Dolphins then, because their uniforms are drawing from a rich history of being exactly the same for a really long time.

Simple, yet effective. The lettering and trim looks much more, well, not 1991, and the ugly collar is gone. If you’re the before/after type, here’s the now dead Dolphins uni…

As for the Vikings, they made the right tweaks too. Their new home look is now a more bold purple, from head to toe. That includes the helmet, which is a darker shade, and the purple is further emphasized by the absence of the white patch underneath the armpit, and the gold collar.

Again, for those who need to visualize the transformation…

Annnd here’s the three new unis, in all their glory and new-ness.

The Jaguars now have some pretty badass new uniforms to go along with their sexy new logo.

Mercifully, after over a month of hype and “leaks” the Jaguars finally unveiled their new unis this afternoon. That’s the black home version, and here are the road white duds…

Although I’m not quite sold on the font used for the numbers (because I have an expert style opinion on such matters), these still easily get the highly respected 100 Yards and Running seal of approval. The two-tone and/or holographic helmet particularly ups the awesome of this new outfit.

New uniforms instantly create a divide in opinion as they’re either loved or hated, and nothing in between. But if you’re a hater, here’s what you have to answer: you really don’t think the Jags’ new uni is worse than the teal pukes, right?

I know, my mind melted too.

Continuing a month of jersey/logo madness that’s included the Jaguars looking sexier, and the Dolphins adopting an airline logo, the Vikings are now beginning to drop some teasers, showing us pieces of their new uniform that will be unveiled on April 25.

From Chris Creamer over at Sportslogos.net, here’s the first game changer. The crest on the uniform below the collar — you know, the one that says “Vikings” — formerly had white lettering outlined in gold trim.

Now it looks like this:

Go crazy.
