The current Falcons uniform was introduced in 2003 and the black version is shown at the left as modeled by Keith Brooking. Warren Dunn shows off the red version below. There have been different combinations of pant colors used over the years with the team settling on only white pants starting in 2009. Again Atlanta did well. It is hard to come up with different uniforms over and over and still come up with something that looks good. I like the black with more red and white added in stripes and shoulder colors. At first I was leery but it looks good. The uniform numbers on the black version are white outlined in red. The helmet logo was redone with red added and outlined in white. The redesign definitely updates the logo in a sharp way. The red version has white numbers outlined in black. Both look great. I own the Warrick Dunn black version. Wouldn't mind a red version but as I already have three Falcons jerseys and I'm not sure I really need to add another.
So as you can tell I'm pretty happy with the history of the Atlanta Falcons uniforms. None were too plain nor went off the deep end with some crazy design. A good page for seeing the evolution of the Falcons jersey, among all the other teams, can be found here at Gridiron Uniforms. Check it out. I doubt this will be my last post on uniforms. It is definitely something I enjoy so I'll see what else I can come up with.
