Last night I started to think about the best helmets in NFL history. It was something that I decided to make a list of right here just because why not? The NFL helmet is the identity of the team. I remember the old Monday Night Football intros where both helmets crash into each other. That’s priceless.
So with that in mind, I’ve decided to create my own personal list of the Top 10 helmets in NFL history that I think stand the test of time. Feel free to disagree with me here.
Before I begin, here are some basic criteria that I used to determine which helmets should be on the list.
What surprises me about this is that this actually happened. Most times ribbing in the locker room happens and it passes by, but for the first time since I can remember, the ribbing and joking caused someone to lose it.
What’s surprising about Friday’s development in Jonathan Martin’s case is that he said that he’s OK and that the teammates making the jokes aren’t to blame.
“Yeah, I’m good man. It’s insane bro, but just know I don’t blame you guys at all. It’s just the culture around football, and the locker room got to me a little.”
This upcoming Sunday, the Titans will visit the Rams and it will be a glorious uniform matchup. The Rams have decided to wear their 1999 throwbacks to commemorate their lone Super Bowl win against the Titans.
What a tremendous uniform opportunity! The Titans have essentially kept their uniform design since that season and the Rams’ decision to do this is a great back in time nostalgic uniform matchup. It will be great.
However, they won’t be exact. As you can see from the above video, the Rams wore their white jerseys and the Titans wore their navy jerseys. The Rams are set to wear their blue throwback jerseys, forcing the Titans to go with their white jerseys. It’s a shame that the Rams have no option to wear white since each NFL team is allowed three different jerseys per season. Had the Rams designated that third jersey as a white one, we’d have no problem. But they didn’t (as they are going to go throwback again later this season against the Buccaneers.)
The uniform matchup will be just like 1999. But not exactly. So close. Just like Dyson, so close, but not close enough. I still look forward to seeing this and feeling like it’s 1999 all over again.
With the game clocking winding down, Matthew Stafford signaled to his team that he wanted to spike the ball. Instead, he saw that the defense was relaxed and he snuck in for the winning score.
Big props to Stafford for noticing that.
But should Stafford receive all the praise or should the Cowboys receive some of the brunt of it for being so dumb. If they know their football, they know that one of Dan Marino’s most famous plays involved a fake like that. And in any situation, why would they relax on defense? If Stafford was to spike, then let him spike. But don’t relax.
Was this more Stafford being smart or Cowboys being dumb? A little bit of both, but I think it’s more of the Cowboys defense being fools.
In recent years since the 49ers’ turnaround back to a successful franchise, the team has started to grab the attention of celebrities. Some celebrities have been seen showing support for the 49ers. Others who have always been fans are now more vocal.
Fan fashion has grown tremendously over the years. With people looking to express themselves fashionably, it makes sense to see them do it with their favorite sports team.
So for fun, I did a quick Google search of famous people who have recently been seen wearing 49ers gear. The team is popular and popular people are wearing 49ers clothing.
He’s at it again. This time knowing a sweep won’t happen, he’s now advocating for a major rain out so Game 5 would get postponed.
I’m not sure if he’s serious, but rain will deter people from going out anyway, so his team’s home game might not be filled either. But at least the television sets will be tuned to the Rams instead of the Cardinals if there was a rain out.
Best of luck to the @Cardinals in the World Series. Oh yeah, could you please bring home the trophy in a sweep so there's no Game 5? Thanks!— Kevin Demoff (@kdemoff) October 23, 2013
The 2013 World Series kicks off tonight and it looks to be a very good matchup that could go the distance. All baseball fans would like to see that. However, St. Louis Rams COO Kevin Demoff doesn’t want it.
Sure, he wants the Cardinals to win. But he wants them to win via the sweep. Why so specific?
If the World Series enters a fifth game, that game will be played in St. Louis this Monday — the same Monday the Rams would host the Seahawks in their first Monday Night Football game in forever it seems. And given that the Rams are already without starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the rest of the season, the last thing the Rams want is to have less attention on them that night when the stage is supposed to be theirs.
So a Game 5 in the World Series would mean most of St. Louis and probably America will be focusing on the World Series. The fans in St. Louis will most likely not be paying attention or even attending the Monday Night Football game unless they are die-hard Rams fans. A sweep would avoid this situation.
After all these years, the Rams finally get a Monday Night Football game and their neighborhood team’s success could put a sour note on it.
