Take That Detroit (Lions)

MJD at Yahoo compiled a list of the coolest helmets in football history. The Pittsburgh Steelers placed first as you probably suspected (since I wouldn’t write a post about the Cleveland Browns or Baltimore Ravens helmet). Anyway, here are a few fun facts from the article:

• It's the only professional helmet to use a logo that was once a corporate logo before it became a football team logo (other than the short-lived and now defunct Miami Hooters of the Arena Football league).

• It is the only helmet in the NFL to have a logo on one side, but not the other.

• There are two colors present in the helmet logo that exist nowhere else in the Steelers uniform: red and blue.
