Default Are the Texans helmets not bad ass???

I mean, apparently our helmets are so bad that we didnt even get mentioned in these stupid helmet rankings. Worse than the hags?? Here I am thinking our logo and helmets are one of the coolest in the league.

But the Texans did score well in a ballot that didn’t count toward the results. Our lead correspondent on this project, Bill Williamson, talked with a former “Project Runway” contestant, who put Houston sixth and Indianapolis ninth.

Perhaps the Texans can make mention of that prestigious standing in their media guide.

Default Re: Are the Texans helmets not bad ass???

I don't think the Texans uniforms, helmets, logo are badasses. I don't think they're bad, but they're not memorable either. I like the simple helmet designs like the Colts, Steelers, Packers, etc. I'm not even big fan of the name "Texans". All I really care about is the team and whether or not they are any good.

Default Re: Are the Texans helmets not bad ass???

Personally, I think the Chiefs and Cowboys have the best helmet designs.
The Titans, without question have the worst.

I do like the Texans helmets though and I could not care less where "they" rank us.

Instead of "Top NFL helmets", this piece could have been called "Oldest NFL helmets."

I like the Texans helmets. I dont care for the name.

I think the Packers, Raiders, Broncos and Patriots helmets are the best.

Helmets are ok, uniforms are kinda lame though.

Definitely better than the Jags, who somehow received a vote.

Also notice the Titans got zero votes as well.

Can't stand our name, but our logo is pretty solid and original.

As for this list, we can't compete with historical franchises, so there's no point in even worrying about where we fall.

Default Re: Are the Texans helmets not bad ass???

This is how I would rank the helmets:

1.Raiders
2.Giants
3.49ers
4.Packers
5.Chargers
6.Lions
7.Patriots
8.Bears
9.Broncos
10.Cowboys
11.Vikings
12.Ravens
13.Texans
14.Buccaneers
15.Steelers
16.Chiefs
17.Jaguars
18.Eagles
19.Rams
20.Falcons
21.Saints
22.Seahawks
23.Redskins
24.Browns
25.Colts
26.Bengals
27.Bills
28.Cardinals
29.Jets
30.Dolphins
31.Panthers
32.Titans

Obviously I'm a little biased, but I think its fair to say most people would put the Raiders helmet in their top 5. How would you guys rank the helmets?

I've said this in many threads over the years. I think the helmets look cartoonish and "expansion" like. I think some of the combo unis are cool and all but the helmet..not so much.

Chargers and Cowboys have been my favorites since I was a kid. Raiders is cool and I like the old but recent Jets helmet.

But none are as good as the USFL Michigan Panthers

Eh. Grew up going to Michigan Panther games. Didn't really pay attention to their helmets then, but I'm not that impressed with them now.

Hey Houstonspartan, I think Houston Spartans would've been a much more cooler name.
