Now that Nike has taken over as the official outfitter of the NFL’s uniform’s and apparel this season, they’ve instituted an entirely new technology that will keep players dry when it’s raining out as well as when they sweat. The new uniforms will also fit better than the previous Reebok ones. So far there have nothing but rave reviews from players around the league.
For more information on the new Nike NFL uniforms check out this site.
Now back to the story. The above picture is of Lions offensive lineman Jeff Backus’ backside from this past Sunday’s game against the Rams. As you can see it’s quite revealing.
This has to be a malfunction of Nike’s technology that they’ll clearly need to re-work so no more players are exposed like poor Mr. Backus.

Nike’s new uniforms did little to help the cause of perspiring offensive linemen in Week 1 of the NFL season. Above is a screenshot of Lions tackle Jeff Backus, who sweat through his pants so hard you could see his legs, cheeks, and jockstrap. I think we can officially consider that a wardrobe malfunction. And I think Nike might need to change the kind of material they’re using...
Is that Super Man or Captain America underwear inside the uniform pants of the 12-year, veteran offensive lineman?
