Which NFL team has the best helmet?

This includes throwbacks and helmets from a different era when the 2 bar facemask was used and if you want to discuss the worst helmets as well.

Are we supposed to pick one of the helmets in the OP, otherwise, he doesn't understand how the word best works?

You're supposed to post 8 helmets and not indicate if you love them.

No any NFL helmet

The Dolphins are the rare team where their current and throwback helmets both look good.

The grey facemask is a good look too

Jets, Steelers and Packers (total coincidence they were 3 of the final 4 in the playoffs).

Re: Which NFL team has the best helmet?



hate the team, but love this throwback helmet.

btw, the Dolphins unis and helmets are among the worst. the color scheme is fucking ugly as sin, and that gay dolphin is hardly intimidating.

Wait. A helmet that is orange and teal lacks "flair?"

Re: Which NFL team has the best helmet?

I googled Zubaz because that's what those helmets look like and they came from the same era.

I don't know about the 'same' era. I remember seeing those pants in the early 90s (maybe late 80s). The Bungles made the switch to those helmets around 1980 (they had them in their first Super Bowl) from their previous boring 'Bengals' helmets. If one wants to say 1990 = 1980, well, I disagree.

My favorite.

Looking at some of the old ones now. Old AFL helmets.
