Yahoo!Sports: Justin Tuck didn’t like it last season when opponents jabbed their fingers into his helmet and yanked, presumably to aggravate his neck injury. One way to prevent such ungentlemanly conduct is to make it impossible for anyone to stick their fingers through a facemask. And that’s how we get Tuck’s new 2012 helmet that’s half hockey goalie, half Hannibal Lecter and all parts overprotective.
Looks like a combo of Darth Vader meets Shredder. Look, I have no problem with this but when a lineman pushes his head back, he better be able to see what the hell he’s doing. Guess we’ll find out the effectiveness of this helmet real quick!
