Redditor Bianconeagles created these Eagles concepts uniforms, and in the absence of anything else to discuss this morning and because the current Eagles uniforms have grown mostly old and tired, we’re going to show them to you.
Heres how Bianconeagles describes his (her?) endeavor:
Home: Helmet: I really like our current helmets. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I made the wings a little bigger to try something out, but otherwise they’re the same.
Jersey: Lots of people want to switch back to kelly green, but I personally like the midnight green. I changed the font on the names/numbers and removed the black cuffs on the arms and the black collar. Also added stripes to the sleeves for style. The result is a simpler, more modern look.
Pants: To maintain simpler aesthetic, I made the pants with only a single black stripe running down the side and black socks.
I actually like these a lot. But the name and number font has to go. I get the look he was going for, but it looks like the sort of font hipsters would use on a flyer for a coffee meet-up. I asked Jim to confirm but he was uncertain:
Bianconeagles mentions Kelly Green and I don’t think we see any sort of radical shift in Eagles uniforms until then. There are some within the Eagles ranks who want to go back, but the guy with all the power loves his Midnight Green. We’re more likely to see a Kelly Green third jersey, but that’s not going to happen until the league allows teams to use different helmets during the season.
Jersey: In keeping with the “less is more” concept, the jerseys are all white with a midnight green collar, stripes on the sleeves, and numbers/names.
Pants: The pants have a single midnight green stripe down the side, and the socks are midnight green as well. Simple, but sleek.
We need a little more color here. These look like the Thursday Night Color Rush uniforms… only they’d presumably be worn on Sunday.
There’s something missing here. I don’t mind the all white, even if it does have a Thursday Night Color Rush aspect to it, but there needs to be more contrast than just in the socks.
Jersey: I’m not huge on our current black alts, I’ve always felt that they need more black. This jersey is almost entirely black, with only a midnight green collar and name/number providing some colour. The names and numbers have a grey outline for better visibility.
Pants: I hate the stripes on our current black pants. I feel like a proper “blackout” look is much more intimidating. And so, these pants are just plain black with black socks.
That is a big black Cox.
