Arizona Cardinals Debut New Uniforms This Year

Late last night, I started to post about the Arizona Cardinals’ new uniforms, but then decided to sleep on it. My first take was that they were hideous–but really, it’s just the all blood-red bodysuit-style rig that’s included in the mix; the all-white uniform and white pants with red jersey variant aren’t that bad.

But like the Cincinnati Bengals’ recently updated dated uniforms, they’re certainly no breakthrough in NFL sartorial standards, which peaked in the late 1970s, it seems. On the other hand, both teams’ uniform designs place an additional emphasis on the two oft-beleaguered franchises: as Chris Collinsworth once said when the Bengals adopted their striped-helmets in the early 1980s, you’d better be winners when you look like that!
