Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

I'm glad they stopped this before it got out of control. Canty, Tuck, Dockett's facemasks looked ridiculous. They're claiming medical reasons...sure...that's like a fat person who gets a scooter and handicapped spot just for being 350 pounds. Do you REALLY need that facemask to protect your health?

"This would have been a cool way to allow players to show off their personalities to fans watching from home. Then again, nobody ever claimed the NFL was in the business of being cool."



Show off personalities? They're called uniforms for a reason. You're not supposed to stand out above your team.

Just so you know, Canty and Tuck have received a medical exemption to keep their facemasks.

Canty, Tuck have clearance to wear elaborate face masks | ProFootballTalk

Canty had a serious eye injury before he was drafted that caused him to drop to the Cowboys, not sure about the others off the top of my head. They must have some sort of medical documentation.

Why not? If you can't get your fingers into the mask you can't get facemasked. I'm with the players.

Worst simile ever. It's nothing like that.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

If the facemask has no benefit why do they wear them at all??

Of course there's a medical benefit. Some just need more protection than others.

Re: 2013 NFL Uniform Thread - Nike Making Changes

I think the darker blue and gold is better than blue and yellow imo, but I also think the navy and white would be cool to keep as a permanent jersey as well.

The old school blue and white Rams are classics, they should definitely go with those.

^Love that Redskins' uniform. Burgundy jersey with white pants is their best, in my opinion.
