    Best/Worst Football helmet of all time?

    For your viewing pleasure, here is the website for the "Helmet Project", a pretty cool history of football team helmet designs:

    Which is the best and which is the worst....ever?

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the U of F helmets from the late '60's thru the late '70s.

    That is a really interesting site; thanks for sharing! As for best and worst, imo the simpler the better. The classics never go out of style.

    Some of the helmets for the old WLAF were terrible and looked like someone had just used clipart for the logos.

    There's a reason why Michigan has never really changed designs.

    The old Ivy League ones are kinda cool.

    I think the Ravens helmet now is the worst ever.
