San Diego Chargers Concept Helmets, Logo

I'm frustrated with the Chargers. I keep tweaking and tweaking but nothing looks right, so I'll just post them all. The first is a redesigned logo based from their 1961-1973 design. And, if you can't tell, the next three are helmets.

Cleveland Browns Concept Helmet, Versions 2a and 2b

A while back I posted an incredibly awesome Cleveland Browns concept helmet design. Well, here's another with two different color variations. Enjoy.

New York Jets Concept Helmet, Version 3

I really like black and green together, so here is yet another Jets concept helmet with said color scheme.

Dallas Cowboys Concept Helmet

There isn't much tweaking that can be done with what the Cowboys have given us so far. Not much has really changed with them over the years. So, for now, here is a Cowboys helmet with rearranged colors. I could probably come up with something better, but it's the Cowboys. Nobody really likes the Cowboys, right?

Two New York Giants Concept Helmets

A silver dome for the G-Men? Maybe something a little Bills-esque? Here, have them both.

Washington Redskins Concept Helmet, Version 2

About a week or so ago I posted two concept logo designs for the Redskins. Here's one of them on a helmet.

Baltimore Ravens Concept Helmet, Version 2

It's a bird. It's a plane... No, it's a bird. I was right the first time.

Here's another Ravens design. Enjoy.

Cleveland Browns Concept Helmet

I usually give a brief explanation/description about whatever it is I'm posting, but I don't feel like doing that today. I do like this helmet, though. It's slightly whimsical. There, I guess I gave a brief explanation/description anyway.

Kansas City Chiefs Concept Helmet

Well, the Chiefs' season appears to be heading towards the crapper fairly quickly. I thought I'd attempt to make them feel better by presenting an alternate helmet design. Here it is.

Pittsburgh Steelers Concept Helmet, Version 2

My current favorite throwback uniforms in football are that of the Pittsburgh Steelers. I really like the Bears and Packers retros, too, but the Steelers are the best. I especially dig the yellow helmets, although I think this white concept design would work well, too.

New York Islanders Fisherman Logo, Take 2

In 1995, the Islanders unveiled a logo so disliked by fans that the team immediately discarded it as soon as the league allowed them to do so. However, I thought parts of the logo were decent. I gave myself the task of redesigning the infamous logo in an attempt to present something that would be more acceptable to loyal Islanders fans.
There were two major issues with the original logo. First, seafoam green is an absolutely ridiculous color. This is a hockey logo, not bathroom wallpaper. Secondly, the Islander fisherman guy has a severe case of jaundice.
After removing the unnecessary seafoam green and curing the fisherman’s visible ailments, the next step was to simplify the border of the logo, then recolorize the blue and orange to the traditional Islander shades.
So here they are, before and after…

Carolina Panthers Concept Helmet

Cam Newton set a rookie record by passing for nearly 4 bazillion yards (plus or minus) in his first game. And for that, here's a new Carolina Panthers helmet design.

Oakland Raiders Concept Helmet

Here's a Raiders concept helmet in honor of their big Monday night victory over the Broncos. This design is another that doesn't top the current design, but at least it's something different. This is the logo they used from 1960 to 1962. It's not bad, but anything not solely black and silver just doesn't suit the Raiders anymore.

Baltimore Ravens Concept Helmet

In celebration of the Ravens' impressive victory over their rival Steelers, I thought I'd post a concept helmet for them. I attempted to give them a winged version. It didn't quite evolve as easily as I initially hoped but I think it's at least worth posting. You should still get an idea of the look I was hoping for.

New Orleans Saints Concept Helmet

This may look too much like a recolorized version of the Louisiana Tech helmet, but oh well. I think it looks good from a retro perspective. This helmet with white jerseys and white pants would look nice. But what would be really nice is if their fans would stop saying "who dat". It's ridiculously annoying.

Green Bay Packers Alternate Uniform

Since tonight marks th beginning of the 2011 NFL season, and the Green Bay Packers are taking part, I thought it would be appropriate to dream up some new duds for the occasion.

New York Jets Concept Helmet, Version 2

It doesn’t get much more simplistic than this design. It’s basically a color reversed adaptation of the team’s 1963 helmet design. I also removed the word “Jets” from the old logo. I thought it was a tad redundant to inscribe "Jets" across a jet.

New England Patriots Concept Helmet

One of the most classic helmets in the history of the NFL is the hiking patriot worn by New England from 1961-1992. Here is the same color scheme from that period along with the tri-corner patriot hat atop stylized N.E. initials.

Miami Dolphins Concept Helmet

There have been a couple of teams recently update their helmet design for a more modern look while keeping the same basic design. The Cardinals gave their bird a little more attitude, the Vikings slightly tweaked their horns. The Dolphins could use a slight modernization, too. Here we have the same basic design but the sun was removed and the dolphin was enlarged and recolorized.
