25. New England Patriots

Strengths: They don’t suck. Really, that is it.

Weaknesses: When the only strength is that “they don’t suck,” that is not good. The logo is weak at best (flying Elvis?) and they are rolling without stripe? Aren’t Patriots supposed to be American? What is more American than a stripe on a football helmet? Fail. Like the Ravens, these are just so plain, and like the Ravens, they lack the classicness and/or fierce logo to properly pull it off. Again, another great front office that seems to have overlooked their helmet.


Ideas for improvement: Personally, I would go with the throwback helmet and uniforms. If they want to stick with these helmets, I would suggest an upgrade to the logo, darken the silver, and add a damn stripe.

      Those who live in grammatically challenged glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones. You’re* incorrect about the Browns not being named after Mike Brown’s father(family name), the current Cincinnati* Bengals owner. Even if you split hairs and say the Browns aren’t technically named after Mike, their helmets are still terrible.
