Best/Worst Logos/Helmets

What are the best/wost (your favorite/least favorite) NFL logos and/or helmets.

You can do current, all-time or both. I'll start in post #2.

As you may or may not know I'm a bit of a jersey/logo nerd and thought this would be something to talk about other than the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation during slow period for the NFL.

BEST Helmets:

1.
-This is the reason I became a fan. These were beautiful. I like the 2006 updated horn too and the new matte helmets look slick.

2.
-These are beauts. The old light blue and yellow is equally as nice.

3.
-There's just something about not having your logo on your helmet.
-This is funny because I detest the team and don't really like their unis but the wings on the helmet is cool.

4.
-There's that non-logo thing again.

5.
-You wouldn't know it based on my Top 4, but I love white helmets. This is just my favorite of the white ones. The Chargers should put the numbers back on them on their current set.

HM: Cowboys, Redskins old spear helmet, Steelers and other white helmets. (If I included college teams Florida St. would be #1 or #2.)


Best Logos
1. Bucs (97-present, although I do like Bucco Bruce and The creamsicles)
2. Vikings
3. Cowboys
4. Raiders
T-5. Original Ravens/70-96 Broncos/Chiefs/Panthers



Worst:

1.
-It looks like an unfinished spray paint job. And the Jaguar is supposed to be "sneaking out of the shadows for the attack" or something apparently, yet it's actually doing the opposite.

T-2-5th. Almost every logo pre-1970.
-I couldn't think or 3 more really terrible helmets or logos off the top of my head. But go look at logos from that era most are really bad.

I remember taking an old Calgary Flames style road hockey helmet and panting it black/gold in the style the jags have done, except it was a lot less gold on the back end and kind of had sprinkled dots since I made it when I was like 12. That helmet was cool to me but in reality it was a piece of ****, just like the Jaguars helmet.

The Jags' helmets are starting to grow on me. I'm a homer obviously, but I can get behind them.

I thought the gold was just glare from the light on that Jags' helmet.

That's atrocious.

As a Falcon hater, I absolutely love those retro Falcons helmets/unis. They need to switch to those unis fulltime.

The helmet the rams had when they were running the greatest show on turf was also really good.

Raiders, Chiefs, Eagles, Saints and Steelers are my 5 favorites jerseys.

Bengals (orange), Broncos, Bills, Chargers and Bears (orange), not so much.

The Bills jerseys are fantastic, arguably the best, definitely Top 5:







Unless you were referring to these atrocities they were from 2002-2010:

Favourite helmets:



Honourable mention:
White Oilers
Packers
Vikings
Redskins
Saints
Broncos (1997-present)
Old Seahawks
Old Patriots
80's 49ers

-The red Bills one has to be my favourite. I like the current ones, but the red one stands out to me.
-I like the current Falcons, and I chose it over the red one because I like the update on the logo. If you put the current logo with the red, it would be their best helmet ever.
-I like the old Patriots, but it's understandable why they changed to a simpler logo.
-The Rams need to go back to the yellow. Not a fan of gold they changed to after they won the Super Bowl.
-When I went to Philly to see some hockey, I saw a store with a whole lot of the retro Eagles stuff in the window. That's what the Eagles need to bring back full time.

Yes I was mostly thinking of the bottom two, the first 2 are beautiful.

Helmets:
Old Patriots helmets were the best-the new still aren't so bad. Love the Falcons helmet, always loved the Saints and even the Jaguars new helmet has grown on me!

The old Bills... Bleurgh! Same as the Raiders, current Seahawks (clashing colours-I'm a girl, I'd know all about that! ) and old Giants-oh and the Cleveland Browns-it's all one color.

Logos:
Old Patriots-not that I don't like the new logo, I do, it's just the old was better. Let's face it, the Broncos have a pretty awesome logo as do the Buccaneers, the Vikings, the Seahawks and the Chargers.

I'm not crazy about the Raiders logo or the Saints and the Bengals, Colts, Packers and Bears are a little boring, but at least they're not the Browns who don't even have a logo!
