The 2019 NFL season is nearly upon us, and to celebrate I’m doing something new to introduce the new season of team media guides. Today’s edition covers the four squads of the NFC South — the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
That red and black color scheme is always a winner, as is the tiling motif. But I really don’t need to see that faux painted wordmark anymore. Grade: B
The Panthers’ color scheme is already a winner, and so is their 25th anniversary logo. Grade: A-
New Orleans Saints
This one gets by not on stunning design but on those Saints uniforms and one of my favorite NFL logos. Grade: C+
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This is a less interesting version of the Bucs’ 2018 guide, right down to the same typeface. A very half-baked look. On the plus side, at least this doesn’t show those atrocious uniforms. Grade: D
