8. Seattle Seahawks
Overall grade: 8.75
Color uniform: 7.75
White uniform: 8.75
Alternate uniform: 9.75
Since Nike got rid of the Seahawks’ vomit-inducing jerseys that the team wore from 2002 through 2011, the Seahawks have won a bunch of games. Some of their success can be attributed to their new clothes
The weak link in the Seahawks’ uniforms is their home jersey, the navy-on-navy. I just think that’s a bit too much navy for a pair of eyes to process at one time, especially with the navy helmet on top of it all.
However, the Seahawks look real good in white. All-white, white-on-navy and white-on-wolf grey are all great looks with the navy helmets.
What boosts the Seahawks substantially is their all-wolf grey alternates. The Seahawks are the only team in the NFL that wears a grey shirt with grey pants, and that uniqueness goes a long way.
It will be interesting to see if the Seahawks ever wear an alternate neon green jersey. It’s the only color in their scheme that doesn’t have a jersey of its own, yet it plays an important role in the trim of each uniform. The Seahawks wore an ugly neon-on-navy combination in 2009 before the Nike contract, but that was the only time (thankfully). Maybe Nike could do it better than Reebok.
