    We're number 5. Not bad. I always thought our helmets were cool, but I thought I was just being biased. Turns out a lot of other folks like it too.

    I don't get why people like the Browns helmet so much. Take away the overrated "nostalgia" aspect and it's just a bland orange helmet.

    The Steelers helmet is overrated as well because people like the blank side of it for the same reason they like that bland orange helmet.

    I dont get why people like the steelers, colts etc... They seem dull.

    The Bills helmets are better than teirs IMHO.

    But to each their own.

    I will say, I think the Steelers yellow helmet is cool.

    Just feel grateful that the Bengals were left off that list. ;)

    I actually like the Bengals helmet and would put it in a top 10 ranking. It's perfect for their mascot.

    White helmet, but without the numbers for me.

    The numbers seem out of place. Keep them on the jerseys.

    Agreed. Nostalgia gives certain teams a bump. I think if someone who had never seen an NFL game and had no idea of history ranked the helmets, the Browns would be near the bottom and the Steelers MIGHT be middle of the pack. People would certainly wonder why they only have a logo on one side when everyone else has their on both sides.

    I'm not an insider so I cant. Sorry.

    I LOVE the whites with the #'s...

    So, your taste in helmets is similar to your taste in movies. ;)

    My rental house is getting painted powder blue and white. The wife was angling for yellow and white, but I wore her down and she's letting me do it.
