Old helmet logo Rod....

The 'Seattle Seahawk' wrap around helmet logo (to the back of the helmet) is now quite outdated... The reason why the Riders changed the logo is because the wrap around to the back did not look that great.

All you have to do is delete that one version and replace it with a current version. Seems simple enough - even for those that don't like change.

Still recognizable. The old logo was also harder to apply to a curved surface, even with a heat gun.

Love the height on all of these new defensive backs

Can't wait for training camp to begin. Lattimore looks like a force to be reckoned with. Motor doesn't stop.

Since Knox Jr. is likely off to the NFL in 2017, Lattimore would be a good prospect to develop for the future.

Knox Jr. won't be going anywhere. He had 100 or so tackles last year and never cratered anyone. He ain't got it, he don't put the fear in nobody.

Exactly, he will be lucky if he has a job with the Riders in 2016, never mine the NFL. Someone had to make all those tackles last year,he just happened to be at the right place at the right time. He does not put the fear in anybody alright.

You guys are idiots haha. If you think coaches don't value guys who are "at the right place at the right time" over striking "fear" in guys (which is ridiculous... This is pro football guys aren't scared out there) then you are more clueless than you originally seemed.

By comparison, the Riders secondary put the fear in 30,000 people every home game and none of them are going to NFL!

Additionally the Riders receiving core put fear in no one yet a section of fans are astounded the management let a few of them go.
