Justin Tuck’s Crazy New Facemask Is Awesome And Functional



This season New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck will be taking the field with a particularly striking helmet that looks like something that a mean robot would wear. Although the mask is aesthetically pleasing and will make Tuck look undeniably badass, it actually serves a purpose as well.

Via Giants.com:

"The idea is he doesn't want to get grabbed," said Joe Skiba, who was honored this offseason with the Whitey Zimmerman Equipment Manager of the Year Award. "But then it becomes one of those situations where when you make a facemask with so many bars like that how much weight is going to be too much weight. So what Schutt did was we made that out of titanium, which is light as a feather. You can feel his helmet now, it feels just as light."

1. If the league outlaws that,

will it be known as the "Tuck rule"?
