A couple of weeks ago, I asked a bunch of NFL writers if they saw Joe Flacos new Ravens jersey in the NFL Network video.
And, like I said, a few of them said yes.
But when I asked if they had seen the new Ravens helmet and how big it was, one of the guys that responded said no.
And that’s when I knew he was wrong.
Well, the new helmet is bigger than Joe Flaccos old helmet, and it’s also way bigger than the old one.
And it’s not the same color as Joe Flaca’s old helmet.
The NFL Network helmet is made of a special polymer called Borosilicate 8, which has a unique ability to hold up to moisture, even in the most extreme of temperatures.
The NFL also made a special “Bosch-style” helmet for the Ravens and it has a larger visor, which is the same visor that Joe Flack used to wear when he played for the Indianapolis Colts in the 1980s.
But while Joe Flacs new helmet has a thicker, more protective visor than the Colts helmet, the Browns helmet is thicker than Joe’s old one, which makes it look like Joe Flaclos old visor is thicker and a lot less flexible than it actually is.
So, if Joe Flaco’s helmet was made of the same polymers as the Colts, then how does the new one look?
Well, it looks a lot like Joe’s new helmet because, as the Browns team tweeted , it looks like the old Browns helmet.
But the Browns did say the new Browns helmet features the “Borosilicic 3” design that is supposed to help keep the visor flexible in extreme weather.
So does that mean Joe Flacca’s new Ravens headband is actually bigger than his old one?
Well, that’s not true.
While Joe Flacy’s helmet is much bigger than Flacco’s old, it’s still smaller than Flac’s new Browns visor.
So, it does look like Flacco is wearing a bigger visor and a different visor with the new Cleveland helmet.
I’ll leave you with this photo of Joe Flccos new Browns Helmet:And the Browns have now issued this statement:
