    ESPN broadcaster: Tune in next week when we discuss which team celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness the best this past year! We will have stunning analysis from our football writers as they fight and bicker over which team sported pink the best!


    Oh man, this is the worst off-season ever...

    My wife calls them cartoonish, and I agree.

    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.

    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.

    I dig our helmets and logo. But I still think we should have been the Houston Toros.

    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.

    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. :headbang:
