Well, we knew it was coming. Still, any previous knowledge of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ plans to introduce a black helmet for their all-black color rush jerseys failed to prepare us for the day that they arrived and we actually see them.

The Birds unveiled their new shell both on social media and with a slideshow on their official team site. Coming up with the appropriate superlatives to describe Philly’s new black helmet is a difficult position to be in. How about we just quote the late, great Scott Hall a.k.a. Razor Ramon. They’re “too sweet”.

Don’t take our word for it! Take a look for yourselves.

Yes, this is a much better feeling than the one that came with the new wordmark. Every time we look at that, we keep thinking about the included text options on Microsoft Word.

DeVonta Smith is already putting his skills as a model to work. Go ahead and try it on Smitty!

As you might imagine, it didn’t take long for Birds fans everywhere to express their opinions. The feedback has been favorable.

Think about it! Eagles combat jerseys… The Birds could rock out with the midnight green, kelly green, and black designs. We don’t necessarily need Oregon levels of possible jersey combinations, but those black helmets really got the imagination working.

Games played in the all-black design will be announced at a later date.
