NFL Helmet Nose Bumpers - Logo or Wordmark?

Recommended Posts

Now that Riddell is no longer the official helmet of the NFL, their name doesn't appear on the front of the helmet. Before, if a player didn't have a Riddell helmet, it would be blank or have a logo on it. Now every team has to do this.

I've seen both wordmarks and logos and I prefer the wordmark. I think the logo, when it's the same as the helmet logo, is just too much of the same thing.

The Patriots have their main logo for their nose bumper.

Wordmark. How many times do you need to see the same damn logo?

Especially on the Browns helmet.

Wordmark. Logo is already featured on the helmet.

But what if the Browns put the logo of their helmet on the....

Nevermind.

Bengals use their main logo but it's not on the helmet so it's a different situation.

I'd like the Patriots to use the NE logo for theirs.

If the logo isn't on the helmet I think the logo works (The Browns couls use the B football logo on their bumper), otherwise I prefer the wordmark. If a team has a secondary logo I think that works too, otherwise I feel like it's just repetitive.

Course, unless I'm forgetting a team, only the Bengals and Browns don't use a logo on their helmet.

I like wordmark...it's long in nature and for most teams, fits the bumper better than a logo.

Exactly how I feel.

And the Vikings, Rams, and Eagles...

It's a rectangular space - most logos aren't built for it. Wordmarks look better in almost all cases.

If fitting then give secondary logos a chance to shine. If not than wordmark that bad boy up.

Seconded.

I'd prefer wordmark, but Denver's looks too scrunched up on the bumper the way it is now. They could have stretched it out a bit more, IMO.

I think it all depends on the team's ability to "fill out" the bumper. Teams with logos that aren't proportional in height/width may choose to go with the wordmark.
