In an inexplicably Scrooge-like decision, the Eagles have opted to wear their black alternate uniforms when they host the Giants on Christmas Day. In addition to making us look at the awful black uniforms, this move will ruin what would have been a nice Christmas-themed uni matchup — the Eagles’ home green vs. the Giants’ red-trimmed road design. Humbug!
Last season, the black uniforms were worn with an alternate black helmet. But this year Philly has added a Kelly green throwback helmet, so the black lid has been shelved and the black alts will be worn with the team’s primary midnight-green helmet (which often looks almost black anyway).
The Grinch could not be reached for comment.
