Analysis: A Breakdown of the Bengals' Leaked Jerseys

Here are my thoughts on the Bengals' leaked jerseys

CINCINNATI — The Bengals' new jerseys appeared to leak on Sunday afternoon. Plenty of fans were underwhelmed by them initially, which makes sense. 

The "XL" Joe Burrow jersey that went viral was crooked on a hanger with large sleeves. 

It looked plain. It looked generic. It didn't look like a quality design. 

It was a bad picture and a poor way to see the Bengals' "new stripes" for the first time, assuming the leak is accurate. 

Fortunately, players wear the jerseys, not hangers on the side of door frames. 

Burrow is going to look much better in the new uniform that the white hanger that you saw on eBay. 

AllBengals contributor Jacob Haugh put together three designs that show what the new jerseys would look like on Burrow, Joe Mixon and Sam Hubbard.

The new jerseys are going to look much better on players than they did when fans saw them initially. 

The long, bulky sleeves in the photos were worst part of the leak. That won't be an issue for the players on Sundays. 

There may be the best concepts that you've seen over the past few months, but they accomplish a lot of what fans were asking for.

The organization got rid of the ugly side panels. The orange on the jerseys will match the helmet and pants. The "B" is no longer the logo in the middle of the jersey. 

They're simple, but effective.

We still haven't seen the white version. No one knows if there will be a color rush. 

What will the pants look like? That's the other part of this that we don't know. 

Either way, these jerseys are better than what the Bengals have had since 2004. 

They're expected to reveal their "new stripes" next month before the 2021 NFL Draft.
