Many Eagles fans might finally get what they have hoped for, a return of the kelly green colored uniforms.
Yes, you read that correctly, so hold on to your seats ladies and gentleman because the Philadelphia Eagles might change the color of their uniform. Their proposal was offered to league offices recently. It also asked that teams be allowed to design and wear two different helmets. One would be intended for use with the normal home and away jerseys, and the other would be worn with the team’s alternate uniform.
The current policy:
The NFL doesn’t allow teams to use different helmets for safety purposes and possibly because their desire to prevent head injuries. The proposal by the Eagles could mean the team is looking to design a black helmet to be worn with their all-black uniform design, or it could also mean a return to the kelly green jersey could be in the works.
When we last saw the beloved uniforms, it was the 2010 season opener against the Green Bay Packers. The team was celebrating their 1960 championship team.

Let’s just hope the team isn’t planning on bringing back those abominations, better known as the blue and gold Frankford Yellow Jackets jerseys. You remember, don’t you? They were worn against the Detroit Lions in the 2007 season opener.
Think about it. Isn’t it is about time the NFL eases up on some of the more strict rules like this one? Then again, when you think about celebration penalties and things of that sort, it’s easy to see the term “No Fun League” didn’t come from nowhere.
Think of the possibilities.
Just think. This could be the start of something huge. Those Boston Patriots beauties come to mind, but then again, there was also those creamsicle-colored Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniforms and those getups the Houston Oilers wore.
This would make so much sense for the league and its’ money-hungry owners. Imagine the revenue on jersey sales that this would bring in. It could even open the door for other fan-friendly events. Imagine “throwback night” on Thursday Night Football. Let’s face it. Something needs to save the Thursday night product.
Hopefully, this is one of many changes the league enacts as it moves forward. Some would enjoy seeing the game handled in a less strict manner, but as we’ve stated, it isn’t called the “No Fun League” for no reason.
