    Pat Patriot vs. Flying Elvis


    I have always been partial to the throwback jerseys. There is just something abut them that gets me pumped up. People like to argue that the Flying Elvis symbolizes the new success while Pat Patriot symbolizes hard times in New England. I would argue that 1) the Patriots haven't won a super bowl since 2004 and 2) I can't remember the last time they lost dawning the old red jerseys.

    Just for fun... Which do you prefer?

    Re: Pat Patriot vs. Flying Elvis

    I have to admit that when I first saw the flying Elvis I hated it.  I only got to like it somewhat over the years due to the success the team and organization has had since switching to it.  But, that probably has more to do with Kraft buying the team and getting (dare I say it), Bill Parcells and Drew Bledsoe then ofcourse Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.  The Flying Elvis represented a change in the Patriot brand from loser to winner.

    That being said,  I still like the Pat Patriot logo better.  I know people who became fans of the Pats simply because they liked that logo.

    Flying Elvis way better...I like the uniforms that go along with the flying Elvis...the silver helmet,silver pants and the dark blue jersey. I like the Pat Patriot I just don't like the red uniforms that much. What about the Pat Patriot on the Flying Elvis uniform....for a couple games. see how it looks???? PP on a silver helmet would look cool???

    I believe it was against the Broncos in 2009 (though I could be wrong).

    Although common sense tells me that it is the player inside the uniform that makes the difference, superstition tells me that the Pats never realized the ultimate goal in the old uniform.  So, I prefer the new uniform (except for the helmet).

    Always liked the Pat Patriot best.  Not so high on the old red jersey, but did like the away uniforms with red pants.  I do prefer the blue uniforms now, but would love to see "Pat" on the helmets. (also the red face guards look ugly...maybe the same color as the helmet might look better...or it might not clash as much with "Pat" on the side)

    They wore the white ones against the Broncos that year. I like the blue jerseys better than red so I'll stick with the current uniforms

    Pat Patriot all the way. Flying Elvis took YEARS for me to get used to. The Pats' uniform of the 80's was great. I like both the red and white jerseys from that era along with Pat on the helmet.

    I understand that some people don't like to think about some of the past seasons with the old logo when the team struggled or flat out sucked but it wasn't the uniform that caused them to suck. Often times it was poor ownership and inferior players wearing the uniform that caused them to suck. They also had some very good teams wearing the old logo.

    As stated above the Pats have had a great record wearing the Pat Patriot gear under Kraft's ownership and with solid talent wearing the colors. Go figure!

    Re: Pat Patriot vs. Flying Elvis

     I remember the first game the Patriots unveiled the Flying Elvis or more importantly , ditched Pat the Patriot.
    It was a muggy summer night in Foxboro for their debut 1993 pre-season game and needless to say I was royally P'd off by the dumping our minuteman logo . I decided I would make a large banner out of an old bedsheet and let the Baztards know what I thought. At the start of the 2nd quarter a friend helped me drape it over the old concrete wall in the corner of the end zone next to teams entrance . At first the crowd didn't know what to make of it and I recall people asking me what it meant . Others got it , and were laughing. Shortly afterwards the game photographers took notice and starting snapping pictures   It wasn't my seat location so I headed back to my own section and was surprised to see it still hanging there when I retook my seat . Unfortunately later in the quarter as halftime approached , I looked over and it was gone . I'm sure word got back to the Pats brass and they weren't amused .
      For years I HATED the new logo , but I have to admit that the tweeking they've done to it  ( combined with the winning SB images it provokes ) has allowed me to accept it ...and actually ( can't believe I'm saying this ) embrace it.

    I didnt think to take a picture of my sign back then ,
     but it looked something like this :

    My design for a Pats uniform way back in the day. I understand it's not for everybody.
