    Adrian Peterson marvels when he thinks about other teams' uniforms. He also laments about the drab unis that the Vikings wore last year, but now he finally has something to brag about with Minnesota's new duds.

    "The jersey we had last year was kind of a reach," Peterson tells SI.com after glimpsing the Viking's new 2013 design. "This feels more like an original Vikings look you would expect from the Minnesota Vikings."

    Still better than our previous uniforms though... favorite uni's of my lifetime so far, and I'm 31.
    I read that they were meant to look like the bow(or stern I guess, since it's the back of the shoulder) of a Vikings longboat sticking out of the water. I liked them once I read that. I think they look pretty good.

    I think some of the numbers are a little funky, but otherwise I'm really happy about the changes.

    Gotta say, I'm not a big fan of the new unis. Don't care for the shoulder stripes or the funky numerical font. Wish they would have just gone back to plainer, classic throwback style jerseys.

    The helmet is fine, maybe badass.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    The Vikings had a chance to do this right, and they messed it up.

    The horns on the helmet look cartoonish, and I hope that matte finish is not the final product.

    The numbers? Not good, look at the new 84 uniform Patterson has shown in press picks. That wrap number looks like crap without a fat number beside it.



    Curses Vikings uniform designers!

    I was wondering how the wind-swept sail inspired number would look without a round number beside it.

    What they should do in cases like this is just put that effect on the 2nd digit instead of the first, or not at all. I like the idea, and for the most part the execution, but I guess it's pretty clear now not all of them are going to look good. Besides some instances where the number-flair has gone wrong, the only thing I don't like is the black facemask. It's black for no reason. Nothing else is black on the uniform.

    Overall I really like these uniforms. What exactly is your beef with the helmet? How is it anymore cartoonish than the previous version?

    The "4" is too blocked. It needs to be rounded.

    The numbers could use some yellow or black piping as well.

    I like the black facemask. It would go better if the numbers had black piping.

    The horn is cartoonish looking. It was before too, but in the photo it looks slightly larger and slightly more cartoonish against the matte purple background. I would have to see the final look live to really get a good opinion on it.
