Best and worst NFL Uniforms...

This uniform stuff is endlessly fascinating to me. UniWatch has brilliant insights about the topic, as usual, but I wanted to compile my own list of the best and worst that the NFL has to offer.

For purposes of time, I'll just go through just the top (and bottom) five uni schemes in the greatest professional sports league on the planet.


1. Pittsburgh Steelers - I hate to admit it, but the Steelers are the gold standard (no pun intended) of NFL uniforms. Great colors, cool helmets. Close to perfect.

2. Oakland Raiders - Classic look even if the team wearing them are barely professionals.

3. Cleveland Browns - Thank God the city of Cleveland was able to keep their color scheme and uniforms after Art Modell moved the original team to Baltimore. They're a picture of tasteful simplicity.

4. Philadelphia Eagles - It probably looks like a homer pick, but the Eagles not only have a fantastic color scheme, they've got the best helmets in the game, bar none.

5. San Francisco 49ers - Underappreciated look, but the red and gold go really well together. Cool helmets as well.


1. Buffalo Bills - Ghastly. Like Arena League cast-offs.

2. Cincinnati Bengals - Pick a design and go with it, already.

3. Arizona Cardinals - Uninteresting, uninspired, and inane since cardinals (to my knowledge) don't live in Arizona.

4. Atlanta Falcons - Michael Vick isn't the only embarrassing thing about that team.

5. Miami Dolphins - We get it, it's sunny down there...Teal is still butt-ugly...

UPDATE: This post has quickly become one of my favorites in almost 4 years of blogging. Let's keep the momentum going and turn our attention to the college gridiron, as many of my readers already have.

Keep it up!
