With Chip Kelly at the helm, these aren’t your father’s Philadelphia Eagles. Or even your slightly older brother’s Philadelphia Eagles.
No, these are the Eagles of the right now, armed with an uptempo offense and a forward-thinking outlook. And what better way to announce that change than breaking all the uniform-related rules?
“We will be wearing all black, for the first time ever I think,” Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin told the 94WIP Mike & Ike Show on Monday. “We’ve always wore black jerseys with white pants, but we will be in all black which is going to be very cool for Sunday night.”
That’s it. The New York Giants shouldn’t even bother to show up. Game over.
