Grade this Falcons helmet redesign

As seen in past summers, a designer has reworked all 32 NFL helmets. 

Designer Ultimate Effects’ take on the Atlanta Falcons’ logo turned the flying bird into an image reminiscent of the Seattle Seahawks -- in black and red. 

Would Falcons opt-out of Color Rush uniforms?

This is how the revamped look compares to other teams in the NFC South:

During the inaugural season of Mercedes-Benz Stadium the Falcons will wear their traditional red jerseys and black helmets at home. The team is expected to be clad in all-red for their Thursday night matchup Dec . 7 against the New Orleans Saints.

What do you think? Is it an improvement on the Falcons’ current lid?
