What are we going to call the new, custom-designed, facemask being sported these days by Justin Tuck of the New York Giants?
- Optimus Prime
- The Fortress of Solitude
"You see the old school trains, the grilles on the old school trains," he said after the final minicamp practice on Thursday. "That's what I was going for."
Giants equipment manager Joe Skiba said players wanting individualized masks is becoming more prevalent.
"Just like anything else, players want to be, not individuals, but they kind of want their own creative look...All of a sudden this is like the evolution of the goalie mask."
Skiba also hinted that Tuck may have more facemask designs forthcoming.
I don't know what else you might call the facemask. The Intimidator? The Calrissian (for you Star Wars junkies)? The Warrior?
I'm sure you guys can come up with some ideas.
