Seriously, look at that thing, it’s freaking terrifying. This doesn’t look like it should be protecting someone’s face, it looks like it should be protecting everyone else FROM a face. I’m pretty sure Tuck’s design meeting went like this:
Helmet Designer: Okay Justin, I understand you want a new helmet, one that will strike fear into the other players. What kind of look were you going for?
Justin Tuck: Okay so here’s what I got. I had this dream last night that Hannibal Lecter from “Silence of the Lambs” turned into an evil robot, but instead of eating people he eats their souls… for robot fuel. I want to look like that.
Helmet Designer: Evil soul eating robot Hannibal Lecter? Yeah I think we can do that.
Justin Tuck: Nice.
