    Thats a Rodgers jersey. QBs dont wear tight sleeves usually. We'll have tight sleeves for the players that want them.

    From the pic I saw, ours looks like mesh. Could very well be some new advanced mesh though.

    Our design will never change. Like Lambeau and the G logo, it is a classic and you don't mess with perfection although they did change the stripes on the sleeves aways back.

    My guess as well. Also I saw a quote from Urlacher and he said the new tight form-fitting jersery might reduce the amount of holding by offensive lineman and Peppers will be in position for 50 sacks.

    I have to say that the part about it cutting down on holding might be true. Not just on lineman but corners who like to sneak a hold onto WR's jersey's which I know our guys tend to do. We'll have to wait and see

    As long as the G is on the helmet and the Lombardi's are in the cases, I will be a happy man.

    You have to protect your brand.

    I hope we always maintain our classic aesthetic.

    I don't care if we wear bright purple as long as we keep bringing home championships!

    Hell no, only when you are from an english speaking country ;)
    Back on topic: I don't like these tight form-fitting jerseys, looks like I have to order one size larger than usual, or maybe I should loose some weight :D

    these are only on the field jerseys, not available to the public and as always I assume they will continue to be made in Wisconsin

    I'm assuming that the jerseys on sale to the public will fit much like the Reeboks.

    I think the Seahawks ones are ugly as hell.
    I am not really a traditionalist, but those are terrible!
    They look Arena League to me.
    Awful.... should call them the Seattle Skittles.

    They're also hiking up the prices. $100 for the replica jersey, $250 for the authentic (they call it the Elite 51 jersey), and $135 for a hybrid between the two that will only be sold for a limited time.

    I f&*%ing hate the way Nike operates: Jack up prices for US consumers while paying virtually nothing for labor in SE Asia... Spend an inordinate amount of money advertising in order to heighten the perceived value of the swoosh...

    Despite all the moaning above, I own a few Nike items and I'm not dissatisfied with the quality. I just feel better about my consumer decision-making when I lace up my New Balances...

    From what I hear the FO decided what Nike could do with the uniforms, and Seattle was the only team to let them go ham. Supposedly the guy Nike got to design it also worked on the Oregon Ducks' uniforms. Don't think the alternate uniforms are out yet. Keep in mind, everything I just said is heresay from a friend of mine.

    Looks great, glad they did not change the classic look. I like the Seahawks new uni's, but it is something they will have to change in a few years when the fresh look wears off.

    Our Jersey has history, our gloves are essentially the same as everybody elses, am I the only one who hopes we have some sweet, flashy cleats? All yellow might be flashy enough, maybe a G...

    My fav part is the change from the nfl equipment shield to just the plain nfl shield.
