The Seahawks rolled out a drastic uniform redesign last spring, when Nike first obtained exclusive rights with the NFL. Major points for figuring out how to incorporate day-glo green in a sensible manner. There’s a lesson to be learned from the Seahawks: Day-glo green should be used sparingly, and solely with neutral colors (navy and gray, in this case).

The Seahawks also get high marks for committing to a complete overhaul, unlike the Dolphins or the Vikings. The only thing left over from their old look is the logo, and they were smart to keep it. The NFL, and sports in general, are overridden with predatory bird mascots, but the Seahawks logo is unique and nicely representative of their Pacific Northwest home.
