I was surfing on the Internet when I came across this story that listed the coolest professional football helmets in history. To read the story, click here.
A few thoughts:
I have always preferred the old school Buffalo Bills helmet (#11 on the list). I think it is one of the most underrated helmets in history. The old helmet has a much cleaner look while their current helmet logo looks like a stain on a carpet.
The writer also deserves kudos for including the San Diego Chargers helmet worn from 1961-73. I thought it should have been ranked higher than #9 on the list. In fact, the Chargers entire uniform from that era is first rate.
It is difficult to argue with his inclusion of some of the classics (Colts, Packers, Steelers, etc.). Some helmets just withstand the test of time.
Also, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers helmet from 1976-96 was a nice touch. Very underrated.
