    Default New Helmet?! [update]

    With Nike taking over the uniforms for the NFL and making subtle or major changes to uniforms I thought perhaps we could see some big changes to the phins uniforms. I think I've stumbled upon our new helmet? Maybe it's just part of the alternate uniform? Still... this thing is AWESOME. You're welcome.




    Check out that facemask, WOW and no white but matte silver for the base coat for the main color. Unfortunately I can't get a side pic of it but we'll find out soon enough.

    Update: To the people doubting my original post before this became a logo thread, I went to the source of the photo.

    Here is the original tweet:

    Here is Jourdan Lewis' Rivals profile:

    Here is Jourdan Lewis' award from Nike's The Opening (in which he was the Skills Challenge Champion):

    Here is the official twitter account of Nike's The Opening tournament congratulating Jourdan Lewis:

    Here is me asking Jourdan if that was the real deal helmet for the Dolphins:

    As far as if that will be the official helmet for the Dolphins remains to be seen. Probably just a prototype, but it exists.

    This is the real deal my friend. About 150 high school athletes are at Nike Headquarters in Oregon for Nikes The Opening and this was tweeted out.

    I can't disagree. Though it still looks tough.

    Most college programs have more tradition than NFL teams. I think it really boils down to having silly things like uniforms as tools to attract 17-18 year old kids.

    I'm also in favor of something modern and futuristic for the Fins. I don't want to look back anymore, I only want to look forward.

    Nah, select college programs have history and thats only a fraction of the hundreds of schools. Almost all of NFL teams have history and take pride in their uniform as they should...they're good and dont need NIKE ruining them.

    And we dont need NIKE turning the NFL into stupid Arena uniforms or the disasters we see in some colleges now. Luckily the NFL is smart enough to set rules for Nike that they cant change uniforms but every 5 years

    Really dig the facemask. Would like to get a better look at the rest of the helmet.

    I'd love for the uniforms, etc. to be updated if possible. Tradition only goes so far. If you can improve, you improve.

    Gimme new and fresh. As long as the Dolphin is on the helmet, and aqua and orange remain i'll be happy.

    I actually like it...

    BTW could you imagine the sun shining off of those metallic helmets?!?! It would blind defenders
    Thank you giovafin for this awesome Sig!

    Another note is the two oranges in the helmet are different... making it look tacky. I say make the orange on the helmet match the face mask.

    Keep our integrity and tradition, just give it a modern edge, that's all, that way everyone is happy.

    I agree.... though I will say it looks more coral than that orange stripe on the helmet. Now if we could just get the Aqua back.

    As much as I am ready for a change, I am like the other guy that said, it just looks way to Patriot like for me. The orange facemask is awesome, the stripes are awesome, but the base color has to change.
    I'm not looking for the best players, I'm looking for the right ones.

    Right - if we're worried about tradition I think we'd all be happy to go back to the original logo. That is badass.

    But if we're going to update the current logo, please let that facemask be part of it.
