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.

Here are the previous editions: AFC North | NFC North | AFC South.

Atlanta Falcons

2019 Atlanta Falcons media guide

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

Carolina Panthers

2019 Carolina Panthers media guide

The Panthers’ color scheme is already a winner, and so is their 25th anniversary logo. Grade: A-

New Orleans Saints

NFL Media Guide: New Orleans Saints (2019)

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

NFL Media Guide: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2019)

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
