Patriot Helmet Stickers

Every team I saw play today had 21 on their helmets. Pats have 91. Am I missing something?

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Was it required for all teams to wear 21 throughout the rest of the season?

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Why do the Patriots wear the number 91 on the back of their helmets?




Answer
The Patriots are wearing circular stickers on the backs of their helmets with the number 91 on them, in honor of their teammate, the late Marquise Hill.



Marquise Hill (August 7, 1982 - May 28, 2007) was an American football defensive end for the New England Patriots of the National Football League.

Hill attended De La Salle High School in New Orleans where he was named as an All-American and the best defensive lineman in the nation by many publications. Hill then played college football in Louisiana State University and was drafted by the Patriots in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft. Hill played in one game in 2004 and played in eight games in the 2005 season, making three tackles.

On the evening of May 27, 2007, Hill and his friend, Ashley Blazio, fell off a jet ski in Lake Pontchartrain, north of New Orleans. Neither was wearing a personal flotation nor tracking device. Blazio was rescued and sent to Tulane Medical Center. Coast Guard units searched the area, and Hill's body was found by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries around 2:15 PM CDT on May 28.

Hill had spent much of his time in the days after Hurricane Katrina helping residents rebuild their homes. He was the first New England Patriots player to die while still a member of the team.

For the 2007 NFL season, the Patriots team will wear a "91" insignia (Hill's number in his tenure with New England) on the back on their helmets in honor of his life.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

The league made the "21" sticker optional for all teams after the first week. Some teams wore them today, some did not.

The Skins will wear the stickers and the patch for the rest of the season.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

I saw Dallas and Philly wearing #21. The Giants weren't though.

cypane is right, the #21 sticker is optional

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

All of the games I watched today the players had #21 on their helmet. This just gives me another reason to hate the patriots. I think it is completely disrespectful. Probably came straight from the head coach.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

I would expect nothing less from the league's least classy franchise. Their owner is a drunk, their coach is a punk, and their QB is an arrogant pretty boy.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

I'm sure to some extent they're saying "Why not the same for Marquise Hill?" But, as cold as this may sound, a drowning accident in the offseason is not perceived the same as being murdered during the season. Not because it's less important or significant. But because of the timing of it. The NFL is at the forefront of sports news in the fall (compared to the spring time) and so an in-season death is just going to be perceived as more impactful, and especially when it's a sudden and senseless death like Sean Taylor's.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Not everyone had the stickers. Most of the Chargers didn't (I think Cromartie did, though). The Broncos kept all three stickers (27, 29, and the black 21). I can't remember all the teams that did or did not have the 21 stickers. I've watched a number of the games on the Ticket today, though, and it's not just the Patriots, though they conspicuously do not. It seemed like it was about 50/50, since it seemed like in a lot of games one team had the 21 stickers and the other didn't. Probably a little better than 50/50 though.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Flipping through the teams currently playing:

Browns: Yes
Jets: No

Chiefs: Yes
Broncos: Yes

Seahawks:Looks like most do, Kerney definitely, Trufant just scored and he does.
Cardinals: No, but Antrel Rolle does, Kurt Warner does.

Patriots: No
Steelers: Yes


49ers: Yes
Vikings: Yes

Looks like it might be optional on an individual basis. Most teams seemed to have decided as teams, but most Cardinals players don't have the stickers.

The only two teams that I saw that didn't were the Pats and the Giants. In any event, does it really surprise anyone that when the Patriots are one of the few teams to not do it? I don't mean to make it a bigger deal than it is, but I have grown to despise the Pats. It has nothing to do with their dominance (which I respect), it has to do with their utter lack of class. Between Belichick cheating on his wife, Belichick cheating in the game, Brady dumping his pregnant girlfriend for a supermodel, Belichick shoving reporters, Belichick publicly denigrating Mangini, Brady being an arrogant a**hole in press conferences, Belichick running up the score just to boost his own ego, Roosevelt Colvin doing the Lights Out dance after the victory over the Chargers in the playoffs, Jabar Gaffney mocking the Eagles' wings, etc. I hate that team with a burning passion.
