The Postgame blog over at Yahoo is getting a lot of buzz for its look at the new NFL uniforms designed by Nike, that promise the latest in fabric technology.
The attention comes from a screen-grab of the very sweaty and revealing backside of Detroit Lions offensive lineman Jeff Backus, adding that "advances in technology come with unintended consequences or unfortunate byproducts." On many players, you can tell if they wear a jock or not.
The new look is most noticeable in players wearing white pants, as these photos below show. None leave as little to the imagination as the Houston Texans.
