Let's start at the top: I love the helmet. I think the pewter, which was their big redesign in 1997 had to stay, and it stayed in a big way, becoming pewter-ish Chrome. The helmet logo itself has stayed nearly identical to the old one, but has been extremely enlarged. The new helmet is great from the sides, but a little strange when you view it head-on. Overall, an okay upgrade.
The jersey: Not a huge fan of the shoulder yokes. The Tennessee Titans pull of a great shoulder color change, but I'm not sure this is the best route for them to go. The Bucs' red is such a bold red and looked great when they wore their all red tops in the Florida sun. The away jersey is what you see above, just swap the red for white, so it seems a little bland with all of that pewter/gray color they have going on. Another cool thing on their sleeves is a different logo on each side. The absolute worst part of this jersey is the new number font. I hate it right now, but it may grow on me. This is something that Nike is doing a lot of lately, creating their own number fonts. The Jaguars received the same treatment last year. The Bucs numbers look like that of a digital clock.
The pants: Nice, and I do like the Nike model of the interrupted pants stripe. Looks good on a lot of their college programs, too.
Could the Eagles be talking with Nike about their own redesign soon? Like the Buccaneers, the Eagles last made their uniform overhaul in the mid-90s, switching from Kelly green to Midnight green. Midnight green has adopted black as a cousin, which I feel is just a cheap ploy for selling more jerseys (I'm not a fan of the black). There are social media movements in order to get the Eagles organization to bring back the Kelly Green, which the Eagles in fact brought back just a few years ago to high acclaim.
Not going to happen.
With the NFL's new law of one helmet per player, per season, it rules out crazy combinations as well as throwbacks which is the absolute worst part. So in their design, Nike has to now get it right on the first try. I personally don't think we should be worried about a revamping anytime soon, unless we find out from the Eagles themselves that they are in fact consulting with Nike for a new look. The Eagles' look isn't stale just yet, but is also isn't a timeless classic either like the Steelers or Raiders or Chiefs, etc. so it should be in the conversation.
Another uniform treat
