I can’t believe the NFL season is right around the corner! Training camp in July, preseason in August, and week 1 in September.
I normally get excited for the start of a new season. A fresh start for all teams, more specifically – my Redskins. This year with the addition of Baylor’s Heisman trophy winning QB Robert Griffin III, it seems like the Redskins are ready to turn the page from all the awful, here we go again, last in the NFC East type football.
There is only one thing that could get me more hyped for the season.
Last year, my buddy Doug Kopf sent me a link to Gridiron-League.com. Gridion-League is a site that re-imagined all NFL team logo’s to have a more gritty, throwback look.
If the NFL adopted all these emblems I would probably go broke, because I would want to buy at least one jersey from all the different teams. I feel like it would give the players more of a gladiator look, rather than a diva-ish style. (At least for the wide-outs)
Any idea that promotes the feeling of having a Dick Butkus, Dick “Night Train” Lane, or Deacon Jones on the field, I support it. Just so there is no misunderstanding, I’m fully aware Butkus, Lane, and Jones aren’t in the Hall of Fame for their looks.
