Reader Jeremy Weber sent in this great tip from yesterday's game (and Tim O'Donnell has added a clearer photo).
Last year, the Packers added small green identification numbers to the back of the helmet. It appears that they have altered the style for this season, seen here on punter Tim Masthay.
Don't know about this. Although adding the name may make identification easier, it seems as though putting the number in the oval will make it harder to read. This is obviously intended for the players and not fans (unless this is some brilliant/cynical ploy to "authenticate" game-worn items for the team's charity auctions), but even on HD this blurs to an indistinguishable green blob at any distance.
Not to mention it further clutters the alread-overcrowded real estate. Do we really need five separate decals on the back of each helmet?
