John Cochran's curator insight, February 20, 2014 3:49 PM

In the evolution of the modern football helmet, something drastic happened in the late 1940's. George Hallas petitioned the NFL to go exclusively to the plastic helmet. That development permitted the framework on which the first face guard could be mounted. Although the early face guard's were simple and often shattered, their design improved in the middle 1950's with the advent of the tubular bars.  Now players can be seen wearing the famous "bird cage" models. While they look impressive, the science of sports authority realizes that the progression of football head gear from open face leather to fully covered plastic has gone full circle. Now, instead of protecting the head, the hard models have become destructive weapons that injure what they were initially designed to guard.
