Panthers unveil black helmets

Carolina Panthers

Add the Panthers to the list of teams that will be using a second helmet during the 2022 season.

The team unveiled a new black helmet on Tuesday. They plan to wear them along with an all-black uniform for their Thursday night home game against the Falcons in Week 10.

“Sometimes guys tap into an alter ego depending on what they’re wearing,” defensive end Brian Burns said, via Darin Gantt of the team’s website. “Whenever a team wears all black, or black accessories, it just brings out that dog in them, the evil side. When I saw this, I was like, ‘This will be tough.’ Especially on defense, they call us the dark side anyway, so it brings it all together.”

The NFL tweaked its uniform rules this year to allow teams to wear a second helmet along with alternate, classic and Color Rush uniforms.

  1. “They call us the dark side..”
    Who is they? Nobody says that. The only thing the Panthers get called is a win. Working on another 5 win season full of delusion. 4th straight 5 win season? Keep pouting.

  2. Seems like every team now has a “Black or White” helmet. Frankly none of them are as nice as the original helmets. It’s just another ploy by the NFL to sell merchandise.

  3. Its time for teams to realize just because you add black to your scheme does not make you the 83 Raiders or 85 Bears.

  4. Nice uni, but won’t help the team a lick. They’ll be near the bottom of the NFC.

  5. Pretty sure this wont help them win any games this year. QB is kind of important and they don’t have one yet. I see 3-14 in the future.

  6. Pretty sure the only “dark side” will be the cellar unto which the Panthers are looking up out of in the NFC standings by week 9

  7. Much ado about nothing. And of course they’re bringing these out against the one team they can possibly beat.

  8. So if you are so proud of them, why wait until week 10. Is that when you fire Matt Rhule.

  9. Matches the mood of all the contractors they are screwing on that practice facility.

    Of course the Bears uniforms are actually midnight blue and not black.
