Yet Another Near-Miss for the Patriots Helmets

LOOKING BACK
By John Turney

As we explored a few months ago the Patriots almost went with a new helmet concept that was rejected by the fans.

Now, we've run across another one that occurred in 1971 for the New England, err,  Bay State Patriots.

According to Bob Moore, the former head of PR for the Chiefs and current team historian, who wrote in Chiefs.com, "In 1971 This prototype was never adopted as the team considered a move to a look conducive to the 1970s."

Here it is:

Well, wouldn't that have beaten all? The Bay State Patriots featuring THAT helmet. 

Whew. Another close call.

  1. That helmet is much nicer looking in my opinion than the actual helmets the Patriots have worn. Taste is subjective, though.
