Not crazy about new Ravens uniforms

If the unveiling of the Seattle Seahawks new uniforms are any indication, Nike has come up with a sleeker, more space-age look for the new jerseys, which are said to be 20 percent lighter and 50 percent stronger. They're also 50 percent uglier, too cold and futuristic-looking, if you ask me. New design on the shoulders adorned with -- naturally -- a Nike swoosh -- is right out of "Star Wars."

Being an old-school guy, I'm not crazy about the Ravens' new Nike Elite 51 unis -- not even the name Nike Elite 51. They're sleeker, lighter, tighter-fitting in a Star-Wars-meets-Ray-Lewis kind of way, but I liked the Ravens jerseys just the way they were. The helmet seems darker, too, with the Ravens logo not popping out as much as it did.
