    Ranking the Helmets

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/27488/power-rankings-top-10-nfl-helmets

    Was nice to see the Vikes dome piece get some love.

    I personally think it is a really good list. I love the Colts and Steelers helmets ... and though I hate the Pack ... their helmets are pretty nice.

    Re: Ranking the Helmets

    How did the Browns make the top 10

    the NFL has been all about the helmet. After all, in football, we donít look at faces, we look at logos.
    No sure which part of their helmet is the logo....the strip or that wonderful color...brown which is just bang with excitement.

    in 1946 the Cleveland team had 15 bucks for marketing which was spent on beer and they came up with naming the team after Paul Brown and the color of brown was the color of the beer bottles and matched the name and the color of the Cuyahoga River

    I also like the Browns' helmets and unis. Orange, white, and brown are the perfect colors for a blue-collar city like Cleveland.

    Maybe the color scheme just works for me because I'm a Halloween baby...IDK.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Really used to like the old LA Rams helmets.
    Even putting aside my disdain for all things Packer, the Packers helmet sucks wad. Not too enamored with the Bears helmet either.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Re: Ranking the Helmets

    IMO the Vikes Helmet should be higher. I agree with the Steeler's as the #1 helmet due to tradition etc. What I dont agree with is how high the Packers or Colts are. I guess it is a tradition thing. I personally loved the throwback uni's and helmets the Colts wore this year. Another team or two that I thought wouldve been higher: Seattle, Houston, and Cincinatti.

    Whats also interesting to me is to see where Siefert voted on the Vikes, he put them at 10 which means that he gave them little to no value as a cool helmet. Even if you hate the Vikes you would have to admit it is one of the cooler helmet schemes out there.

    I am not a Siefert fan and this only further reinforces my theory that he was a traitor behind enemy lines for years! He gave the Bears and Packers high marks and left the Vikes in the lurch, just like all those years as a beat writer for us.

    I thought that too but if you look again it goes by total points and 10 is the highest, Vikings had a total of 22 and 10 of those were from Siefert

    Re: Ranking the Helmets

    I really like our helmet. For once, it probably could be a touch higher on the list.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Packers helmet is the best in the league, by far. Vikings helmet should be voted last, by far. Vikings didn't even wear horns. Why are there horns on the helmet with the quasi-effeminate purple background? Maybe so the fans can sit in the garage swilling cheap rot-gut (probably Wisconsin) beer and pretend to be six-pack samurai or somethin'. :laugh:


    totally kiddin' around :P

    Re: Ranking the Helmets

    Speaking without the purple shades, the packers helmets suck. I don't know why they are so highly ranked. Honestly, it's just a G on a helmet, nothing special about it. Same with the bears. I think Vikings belong a little higher, and the bears and packers much lower. Lions helmets are cooler than the bears and packers. Vikings actually have a helmet that makes sense for a helmet, horns, on the head. G's and C's on the head? Blegh
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
