    I did it on teambuilder in like 5 minutes. That's my excuse.

    Can't change facemask color. They don't have a sock option.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of our Throwback Oiler blues. I know a lot of people aren't fans of the "baby" blue but I think it looks great. I'm not saying we go with that as our main jersey, but I definitely like the light blue being the dominant color. Which is why I prefer the current jerseys to the old ones.

    I like the light blue jerseys - but I think they look so much better paired with the white pants. We always pair them up with the navy pants and I'm not really into it.

    I also kinda like the solid color look - Light Blue Jersey/Light Blue pants and Navy Jersey/Navy Pants - for some reason those are the colors I usually switch to on Madden.

    TorontoTitanFan i've been looking at your jerseys more and more, they're growing on me. The ones on the left. Mostly the helmets. I'd like to get away from the stripe on the shoulder though.

    Yeah, I'm on board for getting rid of the shoulder yoke -- if whatever replaces it is an improvement.

    I made those two concepts in my signature with the specific goal of showing how the Titans could have nice uniforms even if all they do is reorganize and recolor the elements that are already in their own uniform set. I only used the same number fonts (current jerseys and Oilers throwbacks) the team owns currently, the current uniform template and pieces of the current logos.

    If the Titans go for a redesign, I bet they will scrap the current template and also get a new number font. I'm worried it will be ultra-modern and look pretty bad (the new Seahawks uniforms are going to look ridiculously dated in 5 years). I much prefer "timeless" uniforms.

    I don't think what the Titans are currently wearing is timeless, because the current uniforms have several key flaws. I do think they could become timeless if the Titans make a few small changes to them (like in the uniform concepts I did) and commit to not changing them after that.

    I agree we the timeless mumbo-jumbo. Teams like the Packers, Cowboys, etc.. their jerseys will work forever. Our jerseys have flaws. The flaming thumbtack bothers me the most. Although, I have found out that many average fans like our jerseys, judging by what my co-workers have said about the jerseys.

    As for the numbers, I like the more modern look.. something like this font: http://www.dafont.com/datacron.font?text=12&fpp=50

    However, the issue with the modern #s like you said is they'll get dated quickly.

    Also, I doubt we change our color schemes. The two-tone blue with a hint of red works. Not very often do you see teams completely change their colors.

    Same here. I actually just had an out of state friend tell me our jerseys are his favorite in the entire league (and this coming from a Pats fan who makes it his mission to constantly remind me how irrelevant we are). I do agree we could use some tweaks though. But overall I love our color scheme and general concept.

    Yeah I was talking to my friends about how I wish the Titans changed their jerseys, they both said ours were their favs in the NFL. One is a Cowboys fan and the other an Eagles fan. Once I showed them the flame helmets they liked those alot more. When I would wear a Titans jersey to work, all my co-workers would say how they liked the jerseys.
