Broncos, Jets, Lions and Texans have new uniforms. Let’s rank them

The first reaction to anything new in sports in the age of social media is to constantly tear it apart. Ask the Denver Broncos after their uniform change.

Four franchises have revealed major changes to their uniforms this offseason. It must be a scary day. There is excitement at this announcement and fear of becoming the punching bag all day on social media.

The truth is that all four teams haven’t done that bad this offseason. Yes, even the Broncos. The Cleveland Browns also introduced a change to white face masks, and while the rollout was a bit over the top for a face mask, it’s a cool throwback to the past and it looks pretty good.

Let’s rank the new NFL uniforms for 2024:

They are fourth because someone has to be fourth. But the uniforms aren’t as bad as social media outrage might lead you to believe.

Maybe it’s just because the team’s old uniforms, worn since 1997, were arguably the worst in the NFL. Anything would have been an upgrade. Once everyone stops joking about the new kits, they will age well. There is nothing wrong with this group of new jerseys, pants and helmets.

The Broncos made a big mistake. They haven’t made the 1977 alternate throwbacks their permanent uniform because that look is absolutely phenomenal.

Alas. Despite this mistake, the new look of the Broncos is not as bad as people say. But it’s the fourth best.

You know it was a good year for new uniforms and this is the penultimate one.

There is very little to hate about the new look Lions, which is practically an old look. You can look at them and imagine Barry Sanders passing Reggie White or John Lynch in 1995. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

There are some modern touches, and the “Detroit” on the front of the road uniforms works really well. The Lions didn’t overhaul everything and no one wanted them to. They just made a classic look a little better.

The black and blue look of the alternatives will be popular, but perhaps not for everyone. But if you like it, you’ll probably love it.

Absolutely no problem with the new look Lions. Clean, not too over the top, in keeping with their history… great job, Detroit.

The Jets brought it back to the 1980s and it looks awesome.

The “Sack Exchange” era Jets were a fun team and always looked pretty good, so why mess with that?

The Jets used this look as a throwback and it was so successful that they made it the permanent look. Which was smart.

Every moment is wonderful. It’s a lesson for every other team: We had the uniform game figured out pretty well 30 or 40 years ago. Don’t try to reinvent everything. Rework a classic and everyone is happy.

If there’s one complaint, it’s that the Jets had an even better throwback, the one they wore from 1998 to 2018. But these will do just fine.

Whoever redesigned the Texans uniforms deserves a raise.

It’s difficult for the Texans to win over a uniform release. They can’t get nostalgia points like the Broncos, Lions and Jets. They have had a uniform during their fairly short history. A 2002 expansion team can’t exploit the feelings of fans pining for what life was like in 1994.

And the Texans still crushed him. Every combination they have deployed is excellent.

And let’s pay extra tribute to the dark blue alternates with the red numbers, who are not only the best of this lot, but could immediately be among the best uniforms in the NFL. If you’re a Texans fan and don’t have a CJ Stroud H-Town #7 alternate jersey before Week 1, what do you do?

Overall, the NFL will be better on the field this season with the introduction of these four new uniforms and all their different combinations. The Texans are one of the up-and-coming teams in the NFL and while it’s a lot to ask of them to win a Super Bowl this season, they won the uniform rollout.
