Packers Jags Chargers and Saints all look better than what they currently have imo.

 

Jags, yes.  That's the best one of the bunch.  The others, no.

It's a little irritating that most have different color shells and facemasks, but same stripes as regular helmets.  Green Bay and San Francisco would look "better" if they didn't use the same old stripes.

 

For these helmets, I'm a fan of Jacksonville, Baltimore, Tampa, Miami, New Orleans, Cincinnati.

Saints' version is beautiful, and a throwback to the '69 preseason helmet that went away because no one in the organization had, well, you know, notified the NFL of the change. Such were the Saints of that era...

Jags is easily an upgrade.

 

I kinda think the Ravens on is an upgrade, too.

This Jags' helmet is actually "lurking out of the shadows" like they claim the current one is but actually isn't.

None of these will ever see the field but some of them look pretty good http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000822910

Some decent ones in that bunch that would be cool to run in a game of Madden or to have pocket versions of. Maybe 3 or 4 there that can work for an alt if the NFL changes the rules on helmets, too.

 

That being said, I was getting excited to see what they had come up with for the Jets in green to see if they had found a way to make it work.. just for them to have them in silver.

I like the Chargers, Dolphins, and Titans with colored helmets.

 

I've always thought the Chargers should sport Electric Blue.  I think I'd also change the Yellow to Volt for some extra charge.

 

This is the first version of a colored helmet for the Dolphins that I have ever liked.

 

The Titans in Metallic Blue reminds of the Oilers of the late 60s, early 70s.

Both look great, but this is just another reminder of how much more awesome New Orleans looks with a single outline on the logo.

I'm also intrigued by the Jaguars' and Chargers' helmets if only because the former doesn't use teal like it should and the latter because it would be unique and this would be the perfect time to change with the move to Los Angeles.

 

That Saints lid is a thing of beauty, too.

Needs a blue facemask. Then we might have something.

I don't like the way it was executed, but I do hope the Titans bust out baby blue shells next season, which would be a lot more distinct than sharing the white shell with half the league and create the potential for this beaut of a throwback:

I hope the Ravens make the switch to purple helmets.  Black helmets had been good for awhile but now it is becoming stale.  A move to purple helmets and a gold facemask would bring more oomph to their jerseys.

I actually don't mind the gold (yellow, for you nitpickers) helmet for the Redskins:

Makes me think a blend of current uniforms and these would look good:
