Darrell-Stuckey-Chargers-baby_20130408190820960_0_0.JPG" alt="" width="600" height="400" /> Chargers safety Darrell Stuckey has been enjoying his newfound fatherhood and even tweeted a picture on his account @DarrellStuckey of his baby boy Jayton. Just one problem. Did Stuckey inadvertently leak a picture of the team’s new helmet? We can’t be sure, but if so, the Chargers decided to ditch the plain old white helmets and spruce it up by adding a decal of the player’s number on the side.
Although it would be a minor adjustment, the helmet looks very similar to the Chargers’ AFL throwback helmet, but has more powder blue on the outline of the lightning bolt and a nameplate on the back.
The Chargers tweaked their uniforms in 2007
, and it hasn’t been reported that they would be making any major changes. Following the 2012 season, team president Dean Spanos cleaned house after a disappointing 7-9 record. They parted ways with longtime general manager A.J. Smith and head coach Norv Turner. The new-look helmets could be the first of many signs of the change in new direction. Moral of the story? We wish more players would stick their babies in their helmets. It's a good photo op.
