Attire Desire: Ranking Every Uniform in the NFL
Some NFL teams supremely flaunt their colors by having captivating and riveting uniforms that catch the eye of the fans, which in turn can sometimes lead to an acquisition of an enormous fan base.
Certain uniforms are more recognizable, some more fashionable, and some are just downright putrid. This list will rank them from worst to first. However, don't be afraid to share your opinions and tell me why I'm wrong.
32. Cleveland Browns
Why are the Cleveland Browns last?
Their name is the Browns. And, simply put—their uniform is brown.
Could they be any more dull?
31. Minnesota Vikings
The purple and white just doesn't work for me.
It's not intimidating. Also, that doesn't even look like a Viking horn. I refuse to believe that it does.
30. San Fransisco 49ers
Well, they used to have an iconic logo.
Now it is just a blob of uninteresting and dull design. I feel like the fashion police; I don't like this.
Why am I not working for E!?
29. New York Giants
Who is this kid and why is he on Bleacher Report as a picture?
As you can tell, I'm not necessarily a fan of ordinary uniforms. Although I love the color blue, the "NY" on the helmet just doesn't get it done for me.
28. Chicago Bears
Once again, this ordinary and less-than-exciting look just doesn't get it done for me.
The logo is too similar to that of the Chicago Cubs, and other than holding the iconic look of the 80's, this isn't a good look.
27. Houston Texans
The logo is just atrocious.
I get all the symbolism: The steer, red and blue, and the star, but having it all combined into one logo just doesn't work. It looks like a flamboyant, multicolored, one-eyed bull head.
26. Kansas City Chiefs
I like the "KC" inside the arrowhead on the helmet, but with the red, red, white, and red, it makes it a little unflattering. This one hurts me a bit, being a Chiefs fan and all.
I apologize, Kansas City.
25. Arizona Cardinals
Not too terrible—the Cardinal is a decent logo.
Lacking any pizazz or flash, though. We are in the midst of the dull, but not awful jerseys that could all be interchanged.
This is going to be tough.
24. Dallas Cowboys
Yeah, yeah, I know I'm going to get ragged on for this one by the immense fan base.
The "symbolic helmets" represent their great history and such. I know this. I took that into consideration. If I hadn't, it probably would have been in the thirties.
It's so unbelievably boring.
23. Indianapolis Colts
The logo is all right, but the uniform is brutally average.
22. Miami Dolphins
Tyler Thigpen is hands down the greatest quarterback of all time—there's no arguing that.
Unfortunately, the uniforms are not the best ever, even though Tyler Thigpen is wearing them.
21. Detroit Lions
Once again, very average.
The blue and silver is a good color combination, but it's just not used extremely well. I don't like the silver "stripes" that are just bars on the sleeves, and maybe the helmet could use a little more excitement.
20. Tennessee Titans
The dark blue on light blue works in some people's minds, but in mine it's decent at best.
I like the idea, but not the outcome.
19. Jacksonville Jaguars
The logo is cool. The jersey?
Not so much.
18. New York Jets
The green and white look good together, but not good enough to get over how plain and average it is.
17 Oakland Raiders
Silver on black—not bad at all!
Now, if only management could make draft choices as nicely as the uniforms look.
16. Atlanta Falcons
Ever since I was about five, I thought the Falcon logo looked like a zombie bird. Not 100 percent sure why, though.
I like the red and black combination, but it's not utilized well enough.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
The helmets make this jersey.
The wings are a unique design that only Philadelphia can boast in the NFL. On the other hand, I don't really care either way about the jersey, and the pants are just white.
14. Buffalo Bills
This is the best thing Buffalo has going for it.
Not a great uniform, but it's good...unless they're on the road. As Charles Barkley would say, those are "turrrible."
The home jerseys have a nice and interesting flavor to them with the multiple colors on top of the dark blue though, so that's why the Bills land at 14.
13. Washington Redskins
The yellow and red are pretty good. However, the logo makes the uniform.
It's a creative logo giving credit to America's roots, as it is a Native American.
12. Denver Broncos
The "Orange Crush" comes just short of the top ten, mostly due to not having the classic Broncos logo that we all loved.
The new one is still pretty neat, though.
The orange on top of the blue looks great, especially with the illusion of the stripe starting at the top of the jersey and ending at the bottom of the pants.
11. New Orleans Saints
The black and off-gold is a nice combination, but I don't like the pants. They seem faded for some reason and just ruin the jersey.
If it wasn't for that, the Saints would be higher.
10. New England Patriots
Not a bad look, with Patriots logos on either side of the sleeves.
The "Patriots" written right above the numbers as a nice touch, and it's a very smooth looking logo.
9. Carolina Panthers
Light blue and black just look good together.
The baby blue jerseys look pretty doggone good as well. I didn't expect doggone to actually recognize as a word.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The colors by themselves don't look too swell, but combined they prove that two wrongs make a right.
7. San Diego Chargers
The powder blues and the bolts are a very nice combo.
The only thing I would change about these jerseys is the white box surrounding the lightning bolt on the sleeves.
6. Seattle Seahawks
I know I've been dogging on the plain uniforms, but for some reason this one just jumps out.
I don't know if it's the logo that combines in the back of the helmet, or just the grayish blue color that they manage to pull off.
Whatever it is, I like it.
5. Cincinnati Bengals
The Halloween colors really work in this situation.
The orange with the black stripes on the sleeves as well as the helmet, along with the orange outlining the numbers make this a really neat uniform.
4. St. Louis Rams
The Rams boast a sharp looking jersey with a unique style of helmet.
The blue and gold mix creates a very cool look that tops many other teams; now only if they could do that on the scoreboard.
3. Pittsburgh Steelers
The gold and black is recognizable to any football fan, or any person who watches the Super Bowl for that matter.
The symbolic logo has maintained its power throughout the years, as the Steelers have had multiple "dynasties." Even a college team has taken the Steelers uniform because of its look and the mentality that goes along with it (Iowa Hawkeyes).
2. Green Bay Packers
Just like the Super Bowl, the Packers come out right over the Steelers, but this time they are only the runner-up.
The yellow and green are a spectacular combination that actually looks great together. The "G" which many people, including myself, know stands for "Greatness" and not "Green Bay," is a simple, but nice looking logo.
1. Baltimore Ravens
Who would have thought a purple team would look the coolest?
Throw in the black around it and you have yourself an amazingly awesome uniform. They just say "We're going to hit you hard every play," which is exactly what the Ravens are about.
