Before the Seahawks & Buccaneers

Recommended Posts

It not as much to do with the 4 new teams as it is is the two new divisions that has caused the problem.

I personally like the 32 team alignment & one of the reasons there is parity is that if you are a division winner you play all other division winners in the conference & your schedule is always tougher.

Except if your the New England Patriots & for some reason always get the other best team on your home field each year. :) just kidding but Denver has traveled to NE the past two years which is one thing I do not understand.

^ one time it was due to the scheduling of the division AFC West vs AFC East (which flip flops every 3 years). The other was just due to both teams finishing in the same place the year prior and that year's schedule dictated AFC W1 @ AFC E1

I figured it was something like that I just like to jab NE a little since Tom Brady cant win the big game anymore unless it is played in Foxboro! ^_^

One thing on the original post jumped out at me and that's a reminder of how awesome the 1980s Eagles helmet was.

Agreed. I like the simplicity of this helmet much more than the current one.

Looking at that alignment it almost makes sense to switch the chiefs and oilers

Almost. Houston would have been farther away from Denver and Oakland. The trip to/from San Diego would have been just a tad closer.

Absolutely. The new wings look so cartoony. I think the rest of the uniform is nearly perfect, but those wings... yeah.

Maybe if the inside was just silver and no white. Or maybe silver with white outline and just drop the black (it's in the facemask so the helmet would still work with the uniform.) Or just silver and black. Just make the inside of the wing a solid color.

Of course... I still advocate a silver helmet with green/black wing. Pair that with silver pants and I might have to masturbate right in the middle of the lower seating bowl the first time seeing it live.

I remember as a youth Monday Night Football really seemed larger than life. Then again, when one is 5 or 6 years old, heck even 10 years old, many things seemed larger than life to me. It felt like such an event back then, when ABC still had it. Now it feels like "just another football game" with ESPN doing it.

Monday Night Football was an "event" back in the 70's and early 80's. It was "larger than life." Especially in the heyday of Frank Gifford, Don Meredith, and Howard Cosell. It was arguably the most popular show on television. Gifford, Cosell, and Meredith were practically rock stars. Hosting a MNF game back then was a major event for the team and host city. It was really something.

I've never understood the love for the Pittsburgh Steelers helmet. There's a logo on one side and not the other, for heaven's sake, and that logo is almost a complete knockoff of an existing corporate logo. Take away the six championships and the love for that helmet would not run nearly as deep. It's surely based more on team success than on aesthetics.

I always liked how Pittsburgh adapted the U.S. Steel logo. It's fitting for the Steelers. I do, however, think the organization can now afford to put the logo on both sides of the helmet.

Actually, in today's economy, due to turmoil in the middle east, economic uncertainty in China and emerging markets, and especially because of Barak HUSSEIN Obamacare, it wouldn't surprise me if more teams decided that they couldn't afford decals for both sides of the helmet, and I think it's only a matter of time before we see a single-wing eagles helmet.

It's the perfect metaphor for America itself.

This seems like it should have been a publicity stunt in the early 90's, getting people to donate money to help animals caught in pop can rings.

I don't know if it's real, but if it is the turtle got stuck in it as a wee thing and the shell grew within it.

What is the premise of this thread? "Here are my favorite helmets. Furthermore, I hate when more than two teams get playoff berths"?
