In my opinion, white facemasks on colored helmets look goofy and obtrusive unless white is an integral part of the team's identity, which isn't the case with the Vikings. The only teams who currently do that are the Chiefs (who are more or less a red-and-white team, as their logo is mostly white) and the Rams (who are now a blue and white team).

 

The Vikings tried white facemasks back in the 80s and it looked terrible.

Any photo-shoppers want to make that facemask yellow and post the pic?

Watched some draft stuff this morning and noticed that they have mannequins dressed in each teams gear outside the stadium. Found it odd that every team shown used their primary uniform but Carolina was using the alternate blue one. Any word if they plan to make this the new primary over the black??

I wish they would. For one, they are the only NFC South team featuring a shade of blue; and it would be great if they used it.

So with that reasoning, the redskins could use black, the Steelers use red, gray, or blue, chiefs use black, and ravens use red? Sorry, vikings don’t get a pass here and need purple.

 

Yes to redskins or chiefs Black. No to the rest and you know that!!

Well would you look at that it IS awful. The golds almost match, which is sad because someone photoshopped this.

Pretty sure one of Oregon's helmets the last few years have satin finished green facemask.

Yup.

Orange masks for the Bears?

 

 

 

Based on that quick glimpse, I kind of like it. Of course, I would want to see it on field before making a firm decision of if it's good or not.

This seems similar to Washington going to yellow facemasks in the 70s, something people around here seem to like. I'm keeping an open mind.

My mental image of an orange mask isn't so positive, but actually seeing it in that video makes me think it's got potential.

Could be a mistake. Remember a few years ago when they posted a screen shot of the Bears in orange pants...

Not just a screenshot, but those were the DEFAULT away pants. And oddly enough, they're still an option in the game, this is from Madden 18:

I wouldn't mind if the Bears go with the Orange mask with their new Orange Jerseys they'll trot out, but otherwise it should remain navy mask/navy helmet.

 

I also am really curious about the Orange pants for the Bears that have shown up on Madden. Were they something the bears wanted to do but then deiced against it and Madden didn't update their stuff? Or are the Bears waiting to unveil them/use them at a certain time?

They wore orange pants in the 1930s. So theoretically they could be 1930s throwback pants.

They were listed in the logo slick when Nike took over in 2012, so Madden just rolled with it. I don't believe the Bears have updated it since then, so they're technically probably still listed. Who knows whether we ever see them or not, or if they were just an oversight.
