Atlanta Falcons fans have seen new uniforms and a steady dose of throwback uniforms over the past few seasons. Something that most fans have wanted is the original red helmets.
The NFL has finally lifted its one helmet rule that was put in place a little under a decade ago. Starting after this next season, the Atlanta Falcons will be able to roll these helmets out.
NFL fans and Atlanta Falcons fans have been clamoring to see these stunning helmets, but have been bounded by the one helmet rule. This rule by the NFL has been in place since 2013, which was right after the last time the Atlanta Falcons wore these helmets.
The Atlanta Falcons red helmets would be the best looking across the NFL
The rule was set in place to limit the number of helmets a team has, making them wear the same helmets in practice and in games. With the rule being lifted, the alternate helmets have to be the same make and model of your main helmets.
Arthur Blank needs to capitalize on this opportunity and allow the team wears these throwback helmets in at least one game a year.
The throwback logo, the red helmet, and the silver face mask were what Tommy Nobis and the Falcons rolled out with in their inaugural season in 1966.
While the team will not be able to bring these out for this next season, they need to get them ready for the 2022 season.
Having all the combinations with the new uniforms, and having two of the best-looking helmets in the NFL, the Falcons would have the best combos of helmets and uniforms in the entire NFL.
If Blank brings the red throwback helmets back, the Atlanta Falcons would have the black, white, gradient, and throwback jerseys, the white, black, and red pants, and the red and black helmets. That would allow for some phenomenal combinations for the Falcons.
