Greatest Football Helmets of All Time

Anyone else see the facemask Marcus Mariotta has been wearing? (at least in week 1 vs Minnesota. Not sure he wore it vs Detroit) The middle bar doesn't go all the way across.

thats the 808 facemask, the bars are made out to say 808 because its Hawaii's area code or phone code, something of that sort. Just a unique facemask for Mariota. 

 

as far as aesthetics go, Revo Speeds with a S2BD-SW-SP facemask looks nice, especially with a visor

Bo Levi Michell of the Calgary Stampeders wears that very same facemask that Marcus Mariota wears.

I like the "808" mask as well as most of the mask for the Riddell Speed helmets. I really like the Riddell Speed Flex and this mask the Saints Frailey was wearing in preseason.

I always liked Joe Theismann's one-bar, especially contrasted with the larger facemasks of his QB contemporaries.

Upon further research, Riddell has also made this a production Speedflex facemask.

The green is way too dark now. It used to be a beautiful kelly green. But I agree that it's still one of the best out there.

They lightened the green when they went to the satin finish.  With the old metallic finish, it was ridiculously dark green.

That's true. It was worse before switching to the satin finish.

I always loved this facemask and the different versions of it through the years. I think Harvey Martin was the first to wear it in 1978 or 79.

I always liked Stabler's helmet and face mask. The Namath one is also interesting, but would look better if there wasn't a gap between the face mask and the horns.

Posting this more for the Visor than the facemask, but don't tell me anyone rocked a Visor better than Gilbert
"The Gravedigger" Brown

I think this Army helmet is one of the all time great helmets. The uniform is one of my all time favorites.
