NFL 2020 Changes

Recommended Posts

@Ark still my favorite NFL uniform of all time. The logo, the helmet, the striping, the colors and the combos. Perfect.

Not 2020 related, but the NFL is reportedly mulling over changing the one-helmet rule and a decision could be reached for the 2021 season. Thoughts?

As long as they only allow throwback helmets then it's a fantastic move. If they allow every team to have a 2nd helmet no matter it's for throwback or not could lead to a college football style mess that shouldn't be in the nfl.

I tend to disagree with this if it's done right and they don't go crazy. I love it when the Calgary Stampeders break out their Outlaw helmets once or so a season.

I hate the idea of alternate helmets that aren't throwbacks and this will almost certainly lead to that, so I hate this.

It's about time, since the NFL never really provided any kind of evidence that using more than one helmet led to more concussions...it was purely a CYA move on their part.

 

So long as it allows these teams to use proper throwbacks from now on, I'm all for it:

 

Patriots (white)

Jets (white)

Steelers (yellow...er, I mean athletic gold)

Colts (blue)

Titans (white)

Broncos (light blue or orange)

Chargers (navy blue)

Cowboys (white)

Eagles (green)

Redskins (dark maroon)

Buccaneers (white)

Falcons (red...or black if they go red with new design)

Seahawks (silver)

That's not going to happen... everyone will get one eventually.

That was never why the rule was in place.  Nor did they ever say that's why the rule is in place.

The NFL should never allow abominations like these.

I hope the NFL is smart enough to avoid these, they vet all uniform designs and stuff like this should stay off of a gameday uniform.

This is the best possible argument against alternate helmets.

This rule is one of the only things holding the NFL back from becoming the NBA, if stuff like this comes to fruition, the odds that "city" uniforms will exist somewhere down the timeline greatly increases

A change to the one helmet rule in the NFL?

 

 

That makes me [REDACTED].

Preach!!! Anyone who thinks this 2nd helmet rule will stop at throwbacks or even good taste is living in the clouds.

 

These #FIRE helmets you posted are more like what we’re gonna get. They’re fine to sit on the shelf in your office at home or at work, but that’s it. Keep that trash off the field.

 

The writing has been on the wall ever since Color Rush debuted. The NFL has been chipping away at its teams’ identities for years. Helmets are the next step.

I'm going to have to pass. Not just on that but on any potential Oregonization of NFL Uniforms.

Arguably the best throwback used right before the previous rule was axed:

I’d love to see a couple more teams utilize the textured faux leather helmet

The rule before 2013 or whatever it was, was that a different helmet was only allowed for throwbacks. The NFL has loosened its uni rules recently but I think they care about the brand enough that I don't see them alowing this to become the NCAA either.

That wasn't even their best throwback.
