I gotta say, I don't like it...looks like a hockey helmet facemask. Not sure why he needs to change the style of the facemask, nor why the NFL let him do that. Is this helping to protect against a certain hazard of the game?
I don't think a player should be given the priviledge of the changes to be different...if that is all it is about.
lastly...it must be front heavy which could affect his play which is something the team should be concerned about...maybe I am wrong
