Maybe this is a little bit of nit-picking, but the “neck brace” collar design on Nike’s new NFL uniforms is starting to bother me. The actual protective neck brace looked cool when Eric Dickerson used to wear it 25 years ago, but this neck collar design on Nike’s new NFL uniforms just looks a little weird.
It’s also kind of distracting, especially on a QB. Some of the new uniform designs like the Seattle Seahawks new uni’s look great, but this neck collar design degrades some of the other decent looking uniforms.
Some teams don’t have the neck brace collar design on their uniforms, and it seems they made a good decision to keep it off. Maybe it’ll just take some time for it to grow on me, but for now I just don’t care for it.
