Gang Green is going navy and gold.
The throwback threads consist of a plain navy helmet - no logo - and navy jerseys with white and gold stripes on the shoulders and gold numbers and letters, and gold pants with navy and white stripes down the sides.
"It's an honor to be able to wear the uniform that the older players who created a pathway for us wore," linebacker Victor Hobson said. "It's a chance to honor them."
"Ours are kind of boring," wide receiver Laveranues Coles said. "They don't really have much going on. It's just blue and gold. I would like some fluorescent colors, too. That's just me personally."
Coles preferred the look of the powder blue and bright yellow throwbacks the Eagles wore a few weeks ago.
"I actually liked theirs," he said. "I don't know why people thought their uniforms were ugly. I thought they were nice, personally. I could've rocked them. I thought it was nice. Well, I'm from Florida, so I like colors. So, to see the bright colors, it was cool with me."
