    I know that a lot of us would like to see the Pat Patriot throwbacks return (although I don’t want them to return full-time). The NFL “one helmet rule” makes that impossible now. This new helmet covering called Game Day Skinz would make that possible. I’d love to see it tested and worn, with some limitations, in the NFL. Check out the vid from the Uni-watch guy at the four letter network (scroll down):

    How helmets can shed their skin

    And, no, I am not affiliated in any way with this or any product. I’m just a uniform aficionado. FYI

    Can't believe that in the multi billion dollar industry that is the NFL there is that idiotic one helmet rule. Makes to me absolutely zero sense whatsoever.

    I actually think the Patriots silver helmets would look pretty good with throwback uniforms anyways.

    Ehh maybe.

    The crisp white helmet makes the uniform that much better though.

    Well, my compromise, which I have promoted for a few years now, is to keep the silver helmet, pants, and the flying Elvis, but change the jersey color to red. Blends the old with the new, and I personally believe it'd be quite snazzy. :cool:

    ....juuuuuuust like refusing to pay a pittance to suffering retired players, creating fake Pats cheating scandals, ruining the game in every way possible, etc.

    So does ruining our logo and uniforms.

    Although, we did wear them for only thirty-two years.

    It wasn't like they were established or anything, or if we had any huge wins/years in that time.

    Or that we had a history and established fan base.

    Or if our old uni's were the best in all of sports.

    Or, that ruining them would in addition to making us look like a stupid, lousy, miserable, bush league expansion team with an indifferent/minute fan base, would also affirm, empower and intensify the already unmatched derision we received from media and opponents all over the entire country, leading to unprecedented additional denigration and even multiple corrupt undeserved penalties which put our team at a competitive disadvantage.


    Oh, wait...

    How about a white helmet with Flying Elvis, and the color rush jerseys become the primary Jersey?

    26 milliseconds or 26 light years, it's been consistently nauseating the entire time.

    It would be nice to see not only Patriots throwbacks but also Bucco Bruce for Tampa Bay perhaps also Oilers logo too...

    PHI with green kelly were also ok

    Rams this year looked great with many games playied with classic unis

    If there is a chance i think the Pats will consider it

    What’s crazy is it took this long for this to be picked up. I had my helmets vinyl wrapped by them in 2015 and it wasn’t new for them then.

    The NFL one shell rule clearly didn’t apply to Brady this year. He switched from a speed flex at the start of the year back to a VSR4 his traditional shell.

    As long as it isn't our real helmet, with our real logo on it, everybody including Kraft is good with it.
