    Says it debuted during the Navy/Army game. That was less than a week ago although 35 colleges and 15 high schools have already used them.

    My question is this...Isn't Riddell the NFL's helmet provider by contractual agreement? Are these players really allowed to select helmets from different manufacturers?

    I've seen more helmets come off this season than any previous season I can recall. Maybe some time spent on those snaps would be an improvement too.

    You could count on Slaton's helmet coming off once a game, that's for sure.

    Aikman said the players are wearing their helmets looser than they used to and many are only buttoning one set of the straps instead of both.

    I was thrilled when I first saw this thread becuase I saw Vinny started the thread and thought he had returned. Then i looked at the date and realized it was from last December.
