Panthers have the fourth worse uniforms in the NFL?

panthersuniform2Two years ago, ESPN uniform guru Paul Lukas ranked NFL uniforms from best to worst. At that time, the Carolina Panthers were third from the bottom. In a new ranking, the Panthers have the fourth worse uniform.

The Cincinnati Bengals have the worst uniforms in both the 2012 and 2014 ranking. The new ranking, which appeared in the Washington Times, have the Bengals followed by the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, Panthers, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, Tampa Bay Bucs, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and 10th is the Cleveland Browns.

In 2013, Athlon Sports ranked the Panthers the fifth worst uniform in the NFL. The Panthers have adjusted their uniforms a bit over the past two years but it doesn’t seem to have made much difference in the eyes of the NFL fashionistas.

In the previous ranking, Lukas wrote this about the Panthers’ uniforms: “Ah, the 1990s — Nirvana, Monica Lewinsky, and the Panthers’ uniforms. The tapered stripes on the pants and helmet looked silly back then and are hopelessly dated now, and the shoulder loops on the jersey look too crimped when rendered with today’s skin-tight tailoring cuts. They’ve given their logo a subtle upgrade this season, but that’s like bailing water with a Dixie cup while the ship is sinking. Let’s turn Nike’s design team loose on this franchise — the results can’t help but be an improvement.”
