No one knows what to expect from the Philadelphia Eagles following a 9-8 season during the 2021-2022 NFL campaign. No one feels any better about how last season ended. You remember, don’t you? It’s been hard to get over that embarrassing loss in the Wild Card Round versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

There was excitement for the most recent free-agency frenzy. Unfortunately, other than the addition of Haason Reddick, there’s been a lukewarm response to everything else that Philly has done.

Then, there’s all of the stuff that we can talk about that’s on the horizon. There’s some trepidation about what to expect in the coming NFL Draft, and despite his decision to work out with a throwing coach in California, no one knows what to expect from Jalen Hurts in year three.

Here’s something that we can get excited about though, and it’s something the fan in all of us has been thinking about for years.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be allowed to wear alternate uniforms and helmets in 2022.

There’s been this rumbling among many of the die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fans for a while now. You probably have a friend or a relative that’s been clamoring for the Birds to bring those Kelly green jerseys back for quite some time now. How could you not? It’s come up every offseason.

It’s hard to look at those things and not get nostalgic while thinking about Reggie White or Randall Cunningham flipping over a pile or something, but the wait is over. The NFL has loosened some of those strict uniform guidelines, and the Eagles will be allowed to wear the Kelly green alternate jerseys in 2023. Take a look.

We know what you’re thinking. It doesn’t matter much because it makes no sense to wear the Kelly green fit with the midnight green ensembles right? Have no fear friends. That’s been taken care of too.

The NFL’s ‘one-shell rule’ is no more. The Eagles will be allowed to wear an alternate-colored crown to avoid the aforementioned clash. Eagles Chairman/CEO Jeffrey Lurie hung out with the media at the Annual League Meeting, and he announced that, in the coming campaign, while we wait on those Kelly green ensembles, the Birds will introduce a black helmet in 2022.

It’s a shame that the offseason has been so boring that we have to find joy in fashion. Hey, it is what it is though.

Now, on to the important stuff, the coming NFL Draft and roster construction. We’ll see how things go. No one knows how this team will progress, how many games it will win, or what to expect as we continue in year two of the Nick Sirianni era, but here’s what we do know. They’ll look phenomenal when they take the field a year from now in that Kelly green and a year from now when they rock the black jerseys in 2022.

Hey, we’ll take our Ws wherever we can find them!
