looks better than this?

IMO, anytime a helmet and facemask are the same color (outside of white and black), it looks very cheap.

 

The top one does look better.

 

Navy helmets with navy facemasks (like Bears, Broncos) look just fine to me.

I can agree on the Bears and Broncos. I wouldn’t expect them to try anything drastic like orange facemasks

I can't believe I've been on this forum for a decade and we're still having the grey facemask debate. It's what really makes this place feel like home. 

Like the inevitable rising and setting of the sun there are a handful of topics you can always expect to see here. It's like the movie groundhogs day

Has anyone come in with the "it depends on the team?" comment yet? 

 

The Packers are a good example to me that could work with a grey facemask but look better in a team color facemask. The Cowboys on the other hand, I think would look better in a navy facemask opposed to their current silver one.

yes, but there’s a troll on these forums that swoops in with silly generalizations and derails all these discussions.

Not only is the purple facemask far superior to their current black, yellow would even be a more suitable look

Dear god no...

 

There isn't even enough gold on the uniform to justify having a color that bright on the helmet

I’d argue they have roughly the same amount of gold/yellow as Washington-

Now, I’m not saying a yellow facemask would help the Minnesota uniforms, but it’s certainly justified when you compare it to a team who also uses the same color in a similar manner.

 

(Personally, I’d rather have Washington use a gray facemask)

By that logic, wouldn't a white facemask be better? It doesn't get more "neutral" and "invisible" than being the same color as the rest of the helmet.

Not to me anyway. Miami’s white face mask is so distracting to me, perhaps because of its brightness.

I always thought the Packers should look as much as possible like the unis worn in SB 1&2. But I really wouldn't mind keeping the green mask.

Nope, you're not the only one, I would also like to see Vikings with white facemask. Black facemask for Raiders sounds great too and what about Bills in my opinion red helmet>white helmet.

I remember seeing a graphic on a pregame show for Washington that had a burgundy helmet with white/gold/white stripes and a white facemask. It actually looked decent. I’ve tried looking for it again, but can’t seem to find it anywhere.

Not that my opinion of it matters one ioda, but I've long thought the Footballs' yellow gold masks as garish. It may just be because yellow is so bright on its own, but I never understood why they went that route rather than color-keying the masks to the helmets.

The Vikings wore white masks briefly in the early ‘80s. I thought they were too much of a distraction, and looked especially bad with the white uniforms. Switching to purple masks was a big upgrade.
