Make sure to check out #32-25 and #24-17.

As we sneak into the top 10, the helmets get better and the analysis (understandably so), gets shorter. Here is the bottom half of the top 16:

16. Houston Texans

Strengths: I think this is an overall solid helmet with a good logo.

Weaknesses: No stripe.

Ideas for Improvement: I would add a stripe. That’s it.



15. New York Giants

Strengths: Nothing flashy, just a good, solid, classic helmet. This helmet seems to fit the personality of this team/organization. This is the one non-grey/silver helmet that I think can get away with the grey facemask (there has to be an exception to every rule right?).

Weakness: The grey facemask. Grey facemasks, to me, do not say vintage or classic, it says lazy (though if any non-silver helmet can get away with it, is this one.

Ideas for Improvement: None. I think it fits the team and the city. It is solid, but will never crack the top 10.



14. Indianapolis Colts

Strengths: Like the Giants, another solid classic helmet. It is simple, but good.

Weaknesses: I sound like a broken record, but the damn grey facemask.

Ideas for Improvement: I don’t know why Indy switched from the blue facemask to the grey. I would actually go with white – it would be bad ass!. If not white, the second best option would be to go back to the blue. Either way, get rid of the grey.
