DMV: Reimagining the Redskins Helmet

    I’m with you: the Skins current helmet design is fine. It’s better than the yellow ones, the spear ones or the back feather one. And I don’t take too seriously an opinion from a guy that thinks the Bengals helmet looks good and his redesign of the Patriots helmet looks good. I did like Tampa’s, however.

    The Skins redesign would look like the person wearing it just got hit in the head with a spray of bird shit while riding a motorcycle.

    You can pretty much disregard anyone’s design opinion/redesign of any uniform or aspect of an uniform when they fail to mention the one thing modern uniforms are designed for: television.

    The only helmet redesign in that group that would work is the Tampa helmet.

    Ive always loved the old school feather and spear helmets though. Simple and clean and could be easily updated.
