San Diego Chargers Uniform Modifications Announced


[ca

The San Diego Chargers made some changes to their uniforms for the upcoming season. The changes were not a surprise though. During the NFL Draft, the new Chargers rookies were holding the new look jerseys and there was a leak of the new look. The name did get a little bit more redesign. They outlined the gold name on the back with some powder blues.

Here is the description from AG Spanos:

“We changed the nameplate on all three of the jerseys,” said Spanos. “We had wanted to go to a two-color font.  Most teams in the league use a two color font and it really highlights the name.  It looks a little bit sharper and a little bit more modern.”

Another modification to the uniform is the socks. Here is the info via Chargers.com.

The third and final uniform modification is to the team’s socks. Midway up the sock there will now be a gold stripe. There is no change to the helmet or pants.

Some new socks! YEA!!!

 

It’s just a slight change to our look, nothing huge. I know nobody will be happy until we flip it to the baby blue look.

      I’ve seen T’eo and Danny Woodhead Jerseys at the sports stores in the mall

      • 619chargers4life

        Were they stiched jerseys I mean u know the ones with the patch numbers and name plate . I saw the Woodhead and Teo jersey at the chargers store but they werent the game day jerseys . Iron on numbers and name plate is not what I’m going for ?

        • JoseSD

          I couldn’t tell, the T’eo and Woodheadwere hanging in the windows so I don’t remember but for most jerseys they usually carry stitched ones but they have iron on ones too so I’m not sure

          • 619chargers4life

            no worries

    The neck looks way better….not sold on the yellow names tho. I think the white would look better since it would match the number. Home jersey looks pretty sick tho. None the less its new, soooooo i have to get one now

    • veazy

      I’m not digging the yellow font either, but I do like the two-tone font on the away jersey. I agree (as Ernie stated) that nobody will be truly happy until we can at see the powder blues as the default for at least one season.

  • Rob Base

    I want a Allen jersey! Lucky number 13 those are pretty sick

  • Gunnar Martin

    I can’t really judge it until I see them in action, but so far I don’t like the new look. The nameplate should at least match the number color. Who knows, maybe it will actually look a ton better when we see them in a game, but I won’t be entirely satisfied anyways until we switch completely to the powder blues. Why haven’t we done that already???

  • Pels04

    Yo Ernie, we/you or I should start a petition on Change.org for a powder blue home jersey and send that shiz to AG

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      It’s been tried before. It’s almost like the padres brown. Our favorite jerseys are he ones not being worn and everything we do to complain doesn’t help it.

  • Alter Ego

    Looks like the home jerseys will hide blood stains. That’s good – there will be blood.

  • Nick in PB

    I didn’t like when they changed the unis the last time. But then I got use to it. I suppose I’ll get use to these too. Either way, it’s still on of the best in football!

  • shane

    does anybody notice the powder blue jerseys are not nearly as awesome as the origiinals? bring back the REAL powder blues, the new ones just aren’t that sweet, not even close to originals.

  • RZ

    They should wear all Navy for a game like they did on that Monday night game way back.That was a great look!
