New Jersey's released

I knew this was coming and was just wondering when it would happen and it happened yesterday.

If you noticed at the end of last season the Bears sold much of their merchandise at large discounts because they knew it wouldn't sell for as much once they released the new look.

But I was expecting a new logo (or a return to the old logo) not just a new jersey look.

Not sure how I feel about them but I think I liked to previous version better. Of the three I definitely like the third jersey best but I liked the third jersey best last season too.

I do think it is hard to get a good idea of what they will look like in a picture though. I am looking forward to seeing them in person.

What do you think?

I’ve never really liked a straight horizontal line when the bottom of the jersey doesn’t parallel it – looks untidy to me, like an untucked shirt or something.

Not bad, though.

I like them, even better than last years. Here's why:

What are the main colors of the Bears? Chocolate (maroon) and white. Looking at last year's home jerseys and 3rd jerseys I would have thought black and white with maroon and tan accents. Even the numbers and lettering with either black and copper or black and silver.

Keep in mind these computer renderings are crappy and these will definitely look better when we see them for real. But AT LEAST now we've gone back to the roots with the main colors.

Also, keep in mind the Bears haven't had a lot of logos in their history. As much as I love the old logo (and kind of dislike the swatting Bear). That is our logo right now. We've only had it since moving into the Giant Center. I'd say it'll be at least 5 years till we see a new one. And even then it won't be a vintage logo.
