If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed that two of the greatest and most beloved Philadelphia Eagles of all time look like action heroes from the 80s. No one’s complaining and good for them. We just wanted to give you the best description we could here.

Zach Ertz got the ball rolling when he showed up at Eagles training camp looking like Brian Bosworth, and we’re referencing the ‘Boz’ that played at Oklahoma for the Sooners, not the Brian Bosworth that got run over by Bo Jackson. Heck, we wouldn’t make that type of comparison and attach Ertz’s name to it if we hated him.

Now, just in case you’ve been living under a rock, it looks like longtime Eagles legend Jason Kelce has joined in on the fun.

One Philadelphia Eagles legend loses a bet to another.

Loving the Birds assures people of certain things. One, you’ll never be short of topics to debate (or argue) about. Second, there are times when you hear stories over and over, and they become stale.

Heading into Philly’s second regular-season game versus the San Francisco 49ers, as they often do before or after practice, several players, including longtime Eagles legend Jason Kelce hung out with members of the Philadelphia media.

As you might expect, the new hairdo came up in the conversation, and Kelce, always a master of the microphone, wasted no time in telling everyone where the idea came from.

"The bet was that if Zach [Ertz] was still here (by) Week 1, I gotta dye my hair like Zach. Again, not happy with the hair, but happy I lost the bet."

No one knows what Kelce would have gotten had he won or what the reaction was of his spouse (other than his mention that she’s not a fan). He wasn’t exactly asked that, but still, once again the legend is right. We have to agree. We’re glad that Zach is still here too.
