    I think the big addition to NFL uniforms next year will be flywire which is used to improve breathing from the skin and the jersey. I doubt we see too many changes since the NFL likes to stay conservative. Most likely a change in piping and material used will be the noticeable difference. Two teams that have been linked to getting new uni's for next season are the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers.

    Update 1/23:
    From http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/85018-nike-nfl-predictions-of-change-or-no-change/page__st__240

    Most teams have already hinted at this response for next years new jerseys. Jacksonville's equipment manager has indicated the Jaguars will get new uni's in 2013. I would expect more changes to break out then.

    Those prices are ridiculous.

    That said... I'm aware that Adidas makes the uniforms in the NBA, but ultimately don't design any real aspect of the uniform besides, in some cases, the types of mesh used and such.

    How big of an impact will Nike have on the design of the uniforms. Or how "snazzy" can they make it? Is it just the materials used as you mentioned?

    The individual teams will have the final say in what the uniforms will look like, but Nike has been working with each team on different designs. Unlike the NCAA, the NFL has a strict uniform guideline and that is why I think there will be more tweaks than major changes. Carolina and Seattle were thinking about getting new designs the past few years and decided to wait til the new supplier contract kicked in.

    I don't think it is just the materials that is increasing the cost, however, Reebok has cited this as the reason they have increased prices over the past few years. In addition, I would believe Nike is passing some of the licensing cost to the consumer as a way to get closer to the break even point.

    At least people in Cleveland don't have to worry about buying jerseys anymore. Look for the sales of the fake Chinese jerseys to go up.

    Nike and New Era will be previewing some of their products at the Pro Bowl this weekend.

    Huber,

    The problem with Reebok was inconsistency with their cuts and the product had a increased price tag with little improvements during the past few years. I think if the quality is vastly improved, as stated by retailers who have seen the product, you wont see a huge change in rise or drop with counterfeits purchases.

    Still, If I buy ever jersey again it will be the $40 stitched Chinese jersey over the $100 replica.

    All Gloves. Two teams that got logo tweaks are Carolina Panthers Seattle Seahawks. Carolina has tweaks with the whiskers, mouth area and neck area. Seattle changed the lower stripe from navy blue to silver. No graphic change with Seattle.

    It's really hard to buy Browns gear, just nothing looks good.

    I think if the Browns and Nike were able to use secondary logos then you could possibly see the dawg logo used. Personally I could see those sell like hotcakes in NEO if the elf was used. The Browns logo is bland, but since the team established the helmet as their primary logo that is what was put on the gloves. Also something minor I saw with the tweak of the Seahawks updated logo, the eye is more brighter neon green and the upper beak uses a thinner lining.

    I wish we had the helmet logo on our helmets. We'd be the most ironic team in all the land.

    Most uniforms will look very similar to what they looked like this year. What you will see is some minor changes with some of the piping patterns and even pattern in number and fonts. The Panthers and Seahawks have stated last year they are getting new uni's and with the tweaks in their logo indicate that is happening. Oh it was confirmed by Jaguars equipment manager that Jacksonville will get a new look in 2013.

    New Era hats...

    IMO, better than what Reebok tried to do. Sometimes trying to be fancy and flashy isn't always the best route to take.

    The three that round out the bottom left corner would be so much better if you got rid of the logos.
