These Helmets Didn’t Hold Up Very Well in the Cold
It was cold in Chicago on Sunday. It wasn’t record-breaking cold as was predicted, but the temperature was around 10 degrees and that’s plenty chilly. That cold took a toll on at least a couple helmets during the Green Bay Packers’ victory over the Chicago Bears.
You probably saw Bears running back Kadeem Carey get the C decal knocked off his head by Packers linebacker Joe Thomas. Here’s that shot again.

Packers linebacker Jake Ryan’s helmet didn’t come apart so cleanly. He lost paint and decals.

Frankly, we’ve never seen anything quite like that.
