This is pretty good for a fluff article. Lots of history and whatnot to read about.

However, the old Bills helmet (Number 11) looks like complete ass and I have no idea how that made it onto any list.

Default Re: The 11 Coolest Helmets in Pro Football

Why isn't there a Texans helmet in that list?

I disagree with most of them. The Steelers and Cowboys belong. Some of them I like, but they aren't top 10. Maybe the Oilers, but I may be biased in their favor. The Bengals helmet just goes with the uniform. I suppose it's #1 as far as just matching the uniform, lol.

Know what? That old Bucs helmet was pretty good. I think people would like it more if it wasn't orange and the team didn't suck. Shoot, they could've just went with brown with those helmets.

That old Bills helmet is one of my favorite of all time.

I've always liked the Chiefs and old Jets logo as well.

What metrosexual came up with that list?!

#2 - the old Bucs logo was just GAY ("not that there's anything wrong with it")

Seriously lame to even be in the top 10, much less no. 2.

The old Patriot helmet is an honorable mention? That thing is just stupid. I'm surprised he didn't pull out the old dolphin wearing a goofy helmet, too.

The Raiders easily have one of the coolest, but it must have scared metrosexual boy.

I have no problem with the Steelers, Oilers, Colts, Packers (just because it's old school), or even Cowboys helmets. I think the newer Chargers one is better than the old one.

But the rest of them are a stretch. The Houston Gamblers should have been an honorable mention before the Orlando Thunder. That thing looks like it came from a Pride Parade or something ("not that there's anything wrong with it").



Off-season is too dern long. Here we sit wasting time talking about helmets instead of watching them slam into each other!

Default Re: The 11 Coolest Helmets in Pro Football

I've always favored the Eagles '70's-80's helmet, the Rams as well. I saw some Raider fans griping about their helmet not being there, I never thought they were anything special based on looks alone, same for the Cowboys. I'm too biased to judge the Oiler helmet objectively. The Bengals helmets are cool AND fitting, what with the black bars on them.

As for the Tampa Bays helmet, I like the current one over the old one, but opinions vary with those. For college the Michigan helmet is just plain cool.

The Gamblers helmet was really good. I'm not so sure about the name, but the helmet went well with it.

The old Bucs helmet is one of the worst helmets of all time. How the hell does that make it in your top 11? The new Bucs logo/helmet is way cooler.



I'm not a fan of the Chargers helmets. Especially the ones with the numbers underneath. I liked the dark blue ones they wore through the 90s up to 2006 much better



I was never a fan of the Oilers helmets. I think it's the white background. I just never really like helmets that are white. Same reason I don't like the Colts (and Chargers) helmets.

I do like the old red Falcons helmet. I wish they would bring those back!



The Giants one would be on my list. Those are very cool



Here's one last one that I really like. The Louisville Fire helmets from AFL2.



Here's a link that has pictures of almost every helmet that any professional (and college) football teams have worn.

What no Bears helmet? I'm surprised that it never even got an hounourable mention.
As for the Eagles helmet - it would make a nice accessory for the Hawkmen in Flash Gordon.

I would say that Pro Football refers to the fact that the players playing are Professional and you do get paid in Arena Ball so technically they are Pro's, making Arena Football a form of Pro Football.

No it is not just you. I also thought the same thing.

Not that there is anything wrong with it, but I do not see myself bringing a swashbucking guy breakfast in bed anytime soon, nor would I have ever thought about it.
