The New Nike Eagles Jerseys

Here they are, the new Philadelphia Eagles Nike jerseys, and they’re exactly the same!

Today at a press conference that mystifyingly wasn’t shown live on the NFL Network, the NFL and Nike unveiled the new jerseys to be worn by all 32 NFL teams. Previously, as you likely already know, teams wore Reebok jerseys. Now it’s Nike’s turn, and from the looks of things, they were much more conservative than they were with the NCAA.

This is disappointing, to say the least. I wrote at length here about how the Eagles would benefit greatly from a brand facelift, which could have largely been accomplished by refreshing their jerseys. With Nike taking over jersey design this year, it seemed like a good time to do just that.

No such luck.

What you are seeing is essentially the same jersey (cosmetically speaking), with most of the differences coming in the fabric used by Nike. The only team that received a radical change to their new uniforms was the Seattle Seahawks:

I actually like those, and wanted to see something similar, or at least as drastic, for the Eagles. Oh well. 

As you can see in this picture tweeted by Paul Lukas, Michael Vick (and other notables) was in New York to debut the Eagles’ new old look:

We’ll have links to purchase when the jerseys go on-sale soon.

About the only things that are new for the Eagles are the cleats and gloves, which you can view after the jump.

  1. Pro Image at the Neshaminy Mall was selling authentic Reebok jerseys for $30, replicas for $20 (unfortunately they only had DJax, Vick, and Asomugah). I already had a black replica DJax but I got a green authentic just because I couldn’t pass up that deal (I waited until after they signed him to his new deal at least).
    As far as I know, there’s still more there, all the way in the back. I personally don’t care in the least that I’ll have an outdated manufacturer emblem.

  2. The same people complaining about them being the same would be throwing shit-fits right now if they actually changed the Eagles uniforms.

  3. He used proper grammar dummy. Michael Vick WAS in New York. How does “Michael Vick were in New York” make sense? There’s a reason he used parenthesis.

  4. I think that everyone is missing the fact here that Nike does not actually design the jerseys, they just manufacture them. The actual design is up to each individual NFL team, therefore it is up to their discretion as when and how to change to format of their jerseys, NFL approves it then it is sent to Nike for manufacturing. Just because there is a change in the manufacturing logo, does not mean that the uniforms themselves will be much different. If you want a new jersey format, take it up with the Eagles organization, not Nike.

  5. I care more about the bodies filling the uniforms more than the uniforms themselves. Call this a non-story. In other words, move along, people, nothing to see here.

  6. @f u kyle: Kyle’s sentence is correct. Though the parenthetical “(and other notables)” does confuse the subject number (“among other notables” is preferable), Michael Vick is the subject of the sentence, making “was” the correct form of the verb to be.
    In other words, f u kyle, you (and others like you) can go f yourself.

  7. @frankenstein – Total agreeance with you. Thank God that hockey season bleeds into baseball season and then back into hockey season. I gave up on football years ago.

  8. @Schmitter: same here.
    October to April. April to October. Any playoffs are a nice bonus. It’s all you need.

  9. Wouldn’t doubt it if Nike’s Co-Owner Phil Knight is a Seahawks fan…. New Seattle uni’s could have something to do with that…. The man is from Portland, and a Oregon State grad… Onlyyy is he was from Philly!!

  10. I work at the big monster swoosh out here in beavertron and thank fucking god we didn’t destroy the eagles jerseys or logos. we’d end up looking like the university of oregon.
    I wish that we would go back to the kelly green and old eagle. i’ve hated our current system for ages.

  11. They’re all pretty much the same.
    NIKE got the rights to MAKE them, not redesign them.
    There is also no such word as ‘agreeance’.

  12. I like the Amelia books for the family relationships. Also her Vicky Bliss books have romance in them but nothing explicit.I like the Amelia books for the family relationships. Also her Vicky Bliss books have romance in them but nothing explicit.
