Can't find any photos of Kosar, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer doesn't make any mention of him wearing a decal in any of their articles from that period. Kosar missed 8-9 weeks with a broken ankle (beginning with week 3) and returned in late November.

2012 Ealges - Garrett Reid (GR)

Post  Bill Schaefer on Fri Aug 10, 2012 9:22 am

Passing a few days before their 1st Preseason game, this decal memorializes Head Coach Andy Reid's son Garrett.
Eagles state that they will wear the decal all season.

2012 Eagles - GR

Post  Bill Schaefer on Wed Aug 22, 2012 9:49 pm

File this one under weird...
I was under the assumption that the Eagles were dedicating their season to Andy Reid's son, Garrett.
However in no photo of Preseason Week 2 does it appear that the Eagles are still wearing the "GR" decal on their helmets.
Preseason Week 1 (the introduction of the decal)


Preseason Week 2 at New England





Going to have to keep eyes peeled on this one.

No "GR" sticker on the back of the Eagles helmet for last night's game in Cleveland. The front of the jersey also has no patch.

I have to imagine they'll have some memorial for Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren, who passed away on Thursday.

Yeah, I was thinking that too when I saw it Friday morning.
Likely to see a 15 decal next week I bet.
I wonder if it'll only be for 1 week like the GR or for the season.

if the Eagles have ANY sense of history, they should have a 15 decal for the full season (he merits a jersey patch, but sadly, I don't see that happening). 2 of the Eagles' 3 NFL titles are owed directly to him. He scored the lone touchdown in the 1948 Blizzard Bowl against the Cardinals, and while he didn't score in the 1949 Championship Game against the Rams in Los Angeles, he ran for something like 195 yards in a steady rain.

He led the NFL rushing 3 or 4 times and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1965, the third year of inductees.

It's my personal belief that he remains the greatest Eagle of all time.

Before the arrival of Jim Brown, he was arguably the greatest running back of all time.

With Art Modell's passing, could expect the Ravens to have a memorial decal of some sort (not so sure if Cleveland will due to Art having long been Public Enemy #1 in the Dawg Pound).

I believe four simple words should suffice: No chance in Hell.

I can't believe Mike Holmgren hasn't officially said that they won't have a moment of silence--he's supposedly waiting for word from the NFL. The league can't be THAT tone-deaf to ignore the reaction from fans, but then they're arrogant enough to think fans will accept scab officials.

Are my eyes playing tricks or is that an orange outline around the decal?

I was wrong; they are that tone-deaf. Did they learn nothing from Bottlegate in 2001?

2012 Broncos - Colorado Ribbon

Denver is to wear this ribbon throughout the season to acknowledge those that lost their lives in the theater shooting as well as those families affected by the recent wildfires.

2012 Chargers - Junior Seau (55)

Post  Bill Schaefer on Mon Sep 17, 2012 12:59 pm

The Chargers added the "55" decal to their helmet for Junior for their Week 2 home opener. Wonder if its one-and-done or if they'll keep it all season.

1994 Seahawks

Post  Market42 on Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:33 pm

Just stumbled across this one looking at the Week 17 NFL PrimeTime on YouTube. During the highlights of the Seattle-Cleveland game; there was a #92 (similar to the 1986 John Tuggle memorial) in being made apparently of extra numerals on the bottom right-hand side of the helmet, which (along with Chris Berman mentioning the injuries and tragedies that soon-to-be-fired coach Tom Flores had seen that year) piqued my interest.

Did some digging and the #92 decal was in tribute to Mike Frier; a defensive lineman who played 3 games before being paralyzed from the neck down in an accident caused by teammate Lamar Smith (who was drunk and forced to pay part of his salary to Frier the remainder of his career).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Frier (info on incident)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNldqi71zlA&feature=relmfu (where I saw the decal -- 11:39 in)

Re: Helmet decals

Post  Bill Schaefer on Thu Oct 25, 2012 7:05 pm

Thanks Market.
This was the best I could do on a screen grab. Numbers look pretty rounded - almost like da Bears' number font.




The accident occurred Dec 1, 1994.
The Seahawks played 4 games after the accident...
12/4 - vs Indianapolis
12/11 - @ Houston
12/18 - vs LA Raiders
12/24 - @ Cleveland
The screen grab is from the Cleveland game.
Can we now pinpoint in how many of the 3 previous games in which the 92 was worn also?

This from Google news seems to indicate that the helmet numbers would not be ready for the Dec 4 game...
"… ATTENDS SEATTLE PRACTICE \ SEAHAWKS TO HONOR FRIER AT …
Beacon Journal - ‎4 Dec 1994‎ - Robinson said that Seahawks' players may wear No. 92, Frier's number, on their shoes or on wristbands when they host the Indianapolis Colts today. ... "

2012 Military Appreciation "Camo" ribbon

Post  Bill Schaefer on Thu Nov 01, 2012 9:36 pm



As predicted, the Camo ribbon was to be being worn for Weeks 9-11.

Sure enough, it's being worn by Chiefs and SD tonight (11/1).

However, players seem to be wearing other (possibly military related) patches next to the CAMO ribbon on their helmets.
I've seen at least 2 different decals during pregame but can't be certain what they are.

http://www.chargers.com/news/press-releases/article-1/Southern-California-to-see-Chargers-Chiefs-game-courtesy-of-corporate-partners/eef9b6c9-8ad2-43f8-9968-5e02c0f27299

This link states in the 6th paragraph that players "will wear special decals on their helmets saluting all five of the major military branches: Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force and Coast Guard."

Now we just need to get images of them!

1st photo...Coast Guard


2nd photo...Air Force


3rd photo...Navy


4th photo...Army



Having trouble on Google Image search finding a perfect match for these. Lots that look almost similar - but not exact.

WOW!
Huge find Mako!
Thanks.

So we can also gather 2 things from this...
1 - ARZ is wearing the Tillman decal in addition to/instead of the Service decals
2 - never noticed the metallic specks/shimmer in the Cards' helmets
