AFC:

AFC East:

Boston/New England Patriots---Super Bowl XX-era. Honorable mention to first year of Flying Elvis.

New York Titans/Jets---My favorite era for them is 1990-97, although I'm sure that's a minority viewpoint.

Miami Dolphins---1989-96. Although I like white-over-white better than white-over-aqua.

Buffalo Bills---K-Gun. Current set is pretty good though.

AFC North:

Cincinnati Bengals---1980s Super Bowl-era, when the stripes were new and they didn't try to clutter their look like they do today.

Cleveland Browns---1980s. They've never really looked bad, though.

Baltimore Ravens---Yuck. I guess before they added the black pants.

Pittsburgh Pirates/Steagles/Card-Pitt/Pittsburgh Steelers---Current.

AFC South:
Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts---Not totally sure. Maybe the white-facemasked look that Dickerson and George wore. I liked their previous shade of blue better than their current, though I hardly noticed the change.

Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Tennessee Titans---They've had so many good looks. As the Titans, I like Columbia blue monochrome, which we're not likely to see again. As the Oilers, maybe the early 1970s, with the silver helmets. The Oilers never looked bad, and the Titans have only occasionally looked good.

Jacksonville Jaguars---Probably original set. Or the tealish-black helmet with the teal jerseys over white pants, if they ever wore that combo. Their current look wouldn't be so bad if they were based in Vegas instead of Jacksonville. I actually sort of like teal jerseys over black pants with their current helmet.

Houston Texans---Another unpopular opinion: red-over-red.

AFC West:

Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders---Probably their current look. I like their old logo, but their current unis are so classic and well-designed.

Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs---Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson. I just like that they still had normal sleeve stripes.

Los Angeles/San Diego Chargers---Not sure. Not a big fan of the numbers on the 1960s helmets. My favorite helmets of theirs are either current or immediately previous. Favorite jerseys would be AFL-era powder blues. As for overall set...either late-1960s or 1988-2006.

Denver Broncos---Elway-era pre-1997. The jersey-and-pants combo wasn't too special, but the logo was incredible and the helmets seemed to change color based on the lighting. They looked great.

NFC:

NFC East:

Dallas Cowboys---Current, although I don't care for the black outline on the sleeve stripes.

New York Giants---Current, although their 1980s-1990s set looked really good too.

Boston Braves/Boston Redskins/Washington Redskins---Either the Joe Gibbs look (burgundy-over-white and white-over-burgundy with burgundy helmet) or the Vince Lombardi look (yellow pants, yellow helmet, burgundy or white jersey).

Steagles/Philadelphia Eagles (not counting Frankford Yellow Jackets)---Their previous look to this one had a great helmet but so-so jerseys. The Jaworski look had more interesting jerseys, but those weird stripes on the sleeves...I've never been a huge fan of their old green-and-white look; they need grey. Hmmm...either Jaworski or Cunningham.

NFC North:

Decatur Staleys/Chicago Bears---Favorite helmet: Current. Favorite jersey: navy with orange numerals. Overall look: I guess navy with orange numerals and a plain navy helmet, even though that particular combo only exists because of the NFL's one-helmet rule.

Green Bay Packers---Lombardi to present day, any of them except for the stupid navy blue throwbacks.

Portsmouth Spartans/Detroit Lions---Barry Sanders.

Minnesota Vikings---1990s, because of the shoulder stripes on the roads and the purple facemasks. Otherwise, 1970s or even 1960s.

NFC South:
Atlanta Falcons---Dan Reeves and the "Dirty Birds." Minimalist logo was awesome, and black helmet-jersey combo work better over grey pants than red helmet-jersey combo. Reeves added a splash of red that completed the look, including road numerals.

New Orleans Saints---Whenever it was that they wore their bright gold helmets.

Carolina Panthers---Current. All-black look, or blue jerseys over any of their pants.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers---Loved the last days of Bucco Bruce, but their 1997-2013 set was clearly the best they've had.

NFC West:
Cleveland/Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams---From the moment I became aware of the NFL in 1993, I always loved the Rams' look. I guess the 1990s home and road, with the 1994 NFL 75th-anniversary yellow throwback jersey as an alternate, would be my pick. So, specifically, they looked best in 1994. My favorite look for them ever was the white-jersey-over-yellow-pants combo that they had from the 1970s up through 1999.

San Francisco 49ers---Probably 1980s-early 1990s. Kind of bland then but VERY bland today, and then they had to throw in that stupid all-black alternate.

Seattle Seahawks---Original logo, blue fasemask, logo on sleeve stripes.

Racine Normals/Racine Street Cardinals/Chicago Cardinals/St. Louis Cardinals/Phoenix Cardinals/Arizona Cardinals---I'll be in the minority here again, but I actually liked the use of navy blue as an accent color for them. Also loved the Arizona state flag on the sleeves---it was a unique way to pay tribute to their home. So, late 1990s, I guess.


I'll start with the AFC East.

Buffalo Bills: Jim Kelly era uniforms (1990-2001)

jim-kelly-playing.jpg?w=800&h=444

Miami Dolphins: 1984

New England Patriots: 1996

I found the Pats' weird pinstripe-looking pattern on their jerseys a bit unsettling. I think their 1993 look would've been perfect had they not had a grey facemask that year.

I have to say, though, that the Bills' current look would be at least in the same neighborhood as the K-Gun look if their helmet stripe weren't tapered.

Another thing---for whatever reason, I think the Falcons look best when their helmet and (dark) jersey are the same color. I'm probably in the minority with that.

AFC East:

Patriots---Late years of Pat the Patriot...helmet logo too detailed, but the red jersey was just so beautiful.

Jets---The "just add black" era before going retro. Rare instance (for me) of adding black really helping.

Dolphins---Current. Thanks to the "soulless" logo.

Bills---Jim Kelly era.

AFC North:

Bengals---Initial tiger stripes

Browns---White facemask era

Ravens---Terrible all around...old helmet, I suppose

Steelers---Pre-Italics

AFC South:
Colts---Blue facemasks

Oilers/Titans---1980s

Jaguars---Inaugural

Houston Texans---Inagural (before red/red)

AFC West:

Raiders---The only look I've known.

Chiefs---The only look I've known

Chargers---Navy.

Broncos---Pre-1997

NFC East:

Cowboys---80s (Danny White): blue uniform was similar to white.

Giants---80s

Washington---No yellow pants

Eagles---Jaworski era...the sleeves stripes were awful but those colors (pre adding black) were so, so nice.

NFC North:

Bears---90s before alts

Packers---Present day (after reducing sleeve stripes in the mid-90s)

Lions---Barry Sanders with blue pants on the road

Vikings---1990s because of the yellow-outlined numbers

NFC South:
Falcons---Dirty birds. I loved that helmet.

Saints---2000s...not sure what years really...I have liked their look for some time

Panthers---Inaugural...but I don't like anything they've done

Buccaneers---Late Bucco Bruce...the follow-up was great but I just love the Bucco era.

NFC West:
Rams---Eric Dickerson

49ers---80s, I guess

Seahawks---2000s....love the jersey color...if not for mono, that look was tremendous.

Cardinals---Late St. Louis...plain red at home and logo/stripes on the road....it went downhill once they started with the AZ flag.

Best 'boat logo' jpg that isn't 10 miles wide in size.

I love this white, 1987 was a great season with still my fav Grey Cup even with the loss.

Love the blue solids, yet these updated home whites are amazing. Top 5 for me in all of sports. Easily.

Perfect blend of bold & crisp goin' on here. Love those solid white numbers & letter.

2014, I sorely miss those maple leaves. Those things should be adopted by CMNT.

What can I say, I was a fan of these since day 1.

Only a few teams I think went this style out of the gate, with the unique backs, including the Lakers which added some weird prestige & cool factor.

I'd say you and I have similar uni tastes. I think blue-and-white with no silver for the Cowboys is a bit too plain-looking, but I love the other three looks.

AFC East:

Patriots---Late years of Pat the Patriot...helmet logo too detailed, but the red jersey was just so beautiful.

Jets---The "just add black" era before going retro. Rare instance (for me) of adding black really helping.

Dolphins---Current. Thanks to the "soulless" logo.

Bills---Jim Kelly era.

AFC North:

Bengals---Initial tiger stripes

Browns---White facemask era

Ravens---Terrible all around...old helmet, I suppose

Steelers---Pre-Italics

AFC South:

Colts---Blue facemasks

Oilers/Titans---1980s

Jaguars---Inaugural

Houston Texans---Inagural (before red/red)

AFC West:

Raiders---The only look I've known.

Chiefs---The only look I've known

Chargers---Navy.

Broncos---Pre-1997

NFC East:

Cowboys---80s (Danny White): blue uniform was similar to white.

Giants---80s

Washington---No yellow pants

Eagles---Jaworski era...the sleeves stripes were awful but those colors (pre adding black) were so, so nice.

NFC North:

NFC South:

Cardinals---Late St. Louis...plain red at home and logo/stripes on the road....it went downhill once they started with the AZ flag.

So I'm not the only fan of the Falcons' 1991-2002 helmet. Good to know! :P

The Cowboys upset me more than a jersey should. This is a top 3 look in the league yet they wear it once every couple years and only when a team forces them to wear them. Screw the white at home, it looks awful and this is far superior.

Cowboys' blues look awesome. Alas, they make it seem it's some kind of chore having to wear them.

(I prefer the Cowboys' blues to the Dolphins' teals btw)
