    I hate those numbers. They would look out of date within a couple years. That's the exact opposite of what I think the Titans should do.

    I've recently thinking that the best approach for the Titans numbers is to go with a standard block font (which will never look dated), but add some kind of a subtle design element to it in order to make it unique. I think what Texas A&M did with their numbers would look excellent for the Titans -- and it would perfectly compliment the Titans' wordmark.

    I might do up a new uniform concept with numbers like those.

    I'd definitely like to see something incorporating a dark blue helmet with the alternate sword logo. I think that could look pretty sweet. Especially with a primary light blue jersey.

    I hate our helmets.

    haha I did have a disclaimer, I said I like those #s......... BUT it would never work and would be outdated fast.

    I got a solid idea in my head. Using that helmet you just explained. Making the shoulder crap a little more exciting... although I like the flame helmet Toronto has going on. Not sure which I like more. Just gotta decide the pant stripes and actually have time to mock it up. Then i'm going to go on a tweeting frenzy to all the Titan players about the new jerseys.

    I say all us GoTitans posters start sending mail to the Titans asking for new jerseys. If they receive like a 1000, I bet it gets attention! :clap:

    I like the flame helmet idea. It definitely could look cool. But if we're talking "timeless", I just don't see the flame helmet being it. I think something a little more simple like the sword logo is a more classic look.

    I sometimes think TorontoTitanFan wants us to become the Toronto Argonauts

    And you think that why?

    I designed two uniform concepts for the Titans, neither of which looks like those uniforms. Unlike most people here, I don't think a navy helmet is a good idea. I don't think a modern uniform template with piping is a good idea. I don't think a modern number font is a good idea. I have said repeatedly that socks should be a different color than a team's pants. I've said that I think same color jersey and pants looks bad. I don't like those uniforms you posted.

    The two teams have the same color palette. That's about it.

    Would you not agree that THIS is a timeless helmet? Because the flame helmet is the same idea.

    If anything, I think NFL helmets that incorporate clever design elements that are more than just a logo sticker on the side are more timeless. I'm taking about the Rams's horns, the Vikings' horns and the Bengals stripes. Those are some of the best helmets ever.

    I agree that the sword logo on a helmet would look good, but I also think it would be a pretty uninspired solution.

    Yeah I see what you mean. But I guess I just think the wings makes a little more sense on the Eagles' helmet. And the stripes on the Bengals'. We aren't the Tennessee Fire.

    I do realize flames are a part of our logo though. I'm just not a huge fan. Like I said, it looks cool enough. But IDK, for some reason I just think it will eventually be outdated and silly looking. Perhaps I'm wrong. I'd certainly take them over our current helmets. Just not my ideal choice.

    ^^ Lets make those our full-time helmets.


    But for real, you make a good point... I do love the Bengals jerseys (they're my favorite in the NFL, big fan of orange/black (actually like dark gray more) combo). But what does flames have to do with Titans? Nothing.
