    Football Helmet coverings

    What are these pad like items on the players helmets? I started noticing these a few years ago and now they are more prevalent at all practices. Are they for concussion prevention or something else? They look like the insides of the old Riddell helmets I wore in the late 70s.

    Begs the question everyone asked when Wes Welker had that concussion reducer helmet:

    "Well why aren't all the helmets like that?"
    "I'm not doing this for your entertainment. I'm doing this for my entertainment. You just happen to be here."

    After seeing a player break his neck against my team in 1978 I never used my head for any contact again. That doesn't include the facemask/
