    Nice, I managed to vote the very opposite on all four helmets from the first voter.

    I also liked the old Tampa Bay helmet better, although they could have made the guy with the knife in his teeth look tougher. My wife used to crack me when Tampa was on TV. She'd see the helmets and ask, "Is Tampa the gay pirates?"

    Now that you added Tampa, it will still only let me vote four times. So I didn't vote in the Titans/Oilers one.
  9. Just take your time browsing...

    My main gripe is all the new logos look the same. Why do they all have to look like they are flowing? Just give me a simple image or picture.

    If you asked me to draw the Denver logo right now, I could not without looking at it. The same with Tennessee.

    Now ask me to draw the old Oiler rig, I will do it in a second.

    Maybe I am just lamenting youth?

    I refused to do Cincinnati, but they have never had a decent helmet or logo.

    What happened to the white helmet as well?

    Of all the new ones the Titans logo is best, incorporating the "Titans" with the sword, a T for Tennessee and the three stars of the state flag. Too many of the recent new logos look like they came from the same design firm, because they probably did.
    I think the Rams should do a little throwback and incorporate the white and yellow of past incarnations into the "ram's horns"

    And what ever happened to the stripes down the middle of the helmet. It seems like fewer and fewer teams have them?

    I like the new Rams... that is a much more pleasant color scheme.

    For the Broncos, I wish that stripe remained as thick as the back of the helmet, instead of coming to a point near the front. But the new one is much better.

    Old Pats, sorry... the new Pats is much more streamlined and is easier on the eyes.

    I'm not sure about the Titans... I mean, you're comparing the Oilers and Titans... different nicknames call for different logos.

    You forgot the Chargers... the 2007 scheme is hands down the coolest (especially without the numbers).

    Of course this is coming from a guy whose favorite helmet has no logo. :)
