JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t faring any better in the world of sports fashion than they have on the field.
The Jaguars’ uniforms came in last in the latest Uni Watch NFL Power Rankings thanks to their unique two-toned helmet design, which Uni Watch’s Paul Lukas called the "worst helmet in NFL history."
The Jaguars were last in the 2013 rankings as well and 28th in the inaugural rankings in 2012. Uni Watch did not do rankings in 2014. Actually, Uni Watch not only ranked the Jaguars’ uniforms last in the NFL in 2013, they ranked them last among the four major sports leagues (NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB).
That was the first year in which the Jaguars wore their new uniforms and guess what Lukas’ reason was for putting them 122nd?
"Worthy of the bottom spot simply by virtue of having what’s bound to go down as the worst helmet in NFL history," he wrote. "Like, did they run out of spray paint or what?"
The Jaguars have the only two-tone helmets in the NFL: black in the front half and gold in the back half. The Jaguars head logo is featured on both sides. It was part of a collaborative redesign effort with Nike, and the Jaguars unveiled the uniforms at a news conference in April 2013 that featured players Cecil Shorts, Paul Posluszny, Marcedes Lewis, Uche Nwaneri, Tyson Alualu and Eugene Monroe modeling the new look.
Lukas told ESPN today that he preferred the Jaguars’ early uniforms over the new look.
"I always loved the Jags' [Mark] Brunell-era uniforms and said many times that it would one day be viewed as a modern classic if they were smart enough to leave it alone," Lukas said. "Obviously, that didn't happen."
He did add that he likes the updated logo, though.
