Nike “Pro Combat” Uniforms for 2010

Dr Saturday has his take on Nike’s “Pro Combat” uniforms that were rolled out for 10 teams yesterday, including Florida.

Generally I hate uniform redesigns, and Nike in particular is notable for making everything look Arena-leaguish. I would say that this year’s Florida design, however, isn’t the worst I have seen.

But “Pro Combat” as a moniker? Really?

It wasn’t that long ago that Kellen Winslow was getting killed for likening himself to a soldier in “war” when on the field. Seven years later it seems our sensitivities have lessened, as Nike has a “battlefield-inspired” homepage to roll out the line. Maybe Kellen needs to call his agent - his time has come.
