The New York Jets finally unveiled their new uniforms Thursday night, and the reaction was strong across social media.

After a long buildup and a seemingly longer event intro, the Jets finally showed off their much-anticipated new threads in front of fans and media alike. Despite a screenshot of the new uniforms previously making the rounds on social media Wednesday, the reveal was still an epic event for Jets fans of all ages.

Check out some of the best reactions on social media following the big unveiling:

I like the #JetsNewUnis but don't know about the football on the helmet. Unnecessary. If they would have gone with the 80s helmet logo I'd be ?! #Jets pic.twitter.com/lLmwWkFYQP

#Jets fans have been screaming for a throw back logo or at least for it to have a Jet in it instead we get the same logo we’ve had with a slightly different shape and “New York” instead of “NY” ??‍♂️ @nyjets #JetsNewUnis

As usual, opinions were strong on both sides of this argument, with many embracing the team’s new look with excitement, while others bemoaned the team’s updated look. Many fans weren’t thrilled nor terribly disappointed with the team’s choice for the three new combinations.

It’s a bold change for the Jets, who haven’t made a uniform change in 20 years. The team hasn’t enjoyed much success over the past two decades, and it’s clear it was time for a fresh look to match the team’s young, promising roster.

Either way, the biggest thing fans want is winning, and if that happens sooner than later during the Sam Darnold era, the look for the uniforms will fade to the background in comparison.

What are your thoughts on the Jets’ new uniforms? Should they have gone a different route? What do you think of the black alternates? Should there have been a more retro look to the updated logo? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
