As ugly as those things are, the Titans jerseys are still far far worse.

For once I don't feel old thinking the AFL still stands for "American Football League."

If that game is televised, I may have to switch my TV to black-and-white so that I'm not blinded. Holy smokes, those are, uh...vivid. Makes that goofy-looking Bengals all-orange alternate scheme look mild!

(I am SO glad our team has a good-looking alternate jersey.)

I can hear Eskin now ... "Just brutal, totally brutal."

If the Eagles go back to any uniform it should be this one. They should have never changed it. The uniform they have now is "brutal" also.

I guess they thought since San Diego's throw back metalic powder blue uniforms are such a big hit, they would try to get some of that success for themselves.

The owner, Jeffrey Lurie, has something against the Kelly Green the Eagles used for years.
I understand the idea of going with the colors of the first Eagles team to honor 75 years, but there are not too many guys alive today that remember those colors.
The Eagles were Kelly Green for as long as I have been a fan, since the late 1950's. That should have never changed.
I also hate the Black they use at times. Oakland is Black, Eagles are Green, live with it.

I agree, the Kelly Green and Silver was their best look. They changed to that metallica dark green and black the year after I moved from there (95 I think?). The whole black and green thing doesn't work for them just like it didn't work for the Jets.

I agree...the NFL is a bit too marketing driven for my tastes at times...your Eagle re-coloring and re-merchandising the uniform/team colors is one of them.

That uniform reminds me of those hideous Washington Wizards uniforms. Oh well, I once said hip huggers and bell bottoms would never come back.

Eagles fans will now be frolicking to Wham UK! music while enjoying orange mocha frappuccinos during halftime shows that will include Liberace karaoke, silent auctions for Olivia Newton John attire and of course a Philly Cheese Steak cheese sauce chugging contest.

It's all about bucks and shelf space at sports shops. You can buy a Westbrook/ McNabb/ Dawkins/Akers in Midnight Green/White/Black or a nbr. 60 Bednarik in Kelly Green. That's 13 rows in the stores.
I think they are crazy if they think anybody will buy this thing that will be used in one game against the Lions and hopefully never to be seen again, but I am most likely wrong about this.
Look for a 1925 Philadelphia Quakers American Football League championship uniform in a store soon.

Bingo! The Eagles are one of the most marketed teams already! They sell Midnight Green, Kelly Green, White, Black and now Blue and Yellow Jerseys and make a ton of $$$!

Do I like them? Hell Yea!:splits:

There is something fundamentally wrong about the Steelers playing in anything but a black helmet (much less baby puke yellow....errrr....."gold"!!!).

The jersey doesn't look too bad...sort of a NCAA look to it's simplicity.

They must have been disigned by those "guys" on that design show - hate it when I have a "senior moment" and can't remember the name.
But these uni's are sooo not masculine.

the helmets look stupid though...but the actual jerseys aren't that bad imo
