Wow, that was quite an unexpectedly busy week in terms of uniform news. MLB and the Phillies released images of all of their league-wide special event hats and jerseys in one dump instead of the usual press release and ad blitz 3-4 weeks before the on-field date. And the supposed Eagles 2016 Color Rush featured color – for Thursday Night Football – was leaked on Twitter by @nflleaks. [Hint:Whether it ends up being grey or silver is yet to be determined. Nike’s Elite 51 template fabrics from 2012-2015 couldn’t render metallic shades. Hopefully, 2016’s Vapor Untouchable template can, because grey is boring, and all-grey is a distinctive look of the Seahawks. ALSO, this is just a rumor at this point, but it smells legit.]
For the Eagles, there likely won’t be any surprises. Last season’s Color Rush uniforms were just re-colored versions of the team’s existing template (though the Cowboys’ was a throwback design). Long story short, look for an all-grey version of the blackout set that’s been worn the last two years. MisterrAlex on the Eagles subreddit did a few mockups of the all-grey/silver combination with variations of the number fills and strokes. It doesn’t look bad, but the one issue that it has, just like the rest of the Eagles current set, it’s not Kelly Green. So, we’re likely still stuck with what seems to be Lurie’s continued disinterest in moving the green back to where it should be.
