Been thinking about this lately. A lot of teams changed their helmets in the 90's and 2000's, but were they the right moves? Enough time has passed - let's review.

Patriots - This one is easy. The old Pats logo was cheesy and over-complicated. The new one is classy.
VERDICT: success

Jets/Giants/Chargers - lumping these together because they didn't so much create new logos as much as revive old ones. All of them are pretty good. I think both [strike]NY[/strike] NJ teams should break out their 80's helmets but the ones they chose are pretty classic. Bonus when the Chargers wear the full powder blues.
VERDICT: draw

Bills - tough one. The red helmet brought some much needed zazz but I like the white helmet brought out sometimes.
VERDICT: success

Bengals - obviously an improvement. Would like to see the text back sometime for some good old nostalgia. Maybe there have been throwback games, but I haven't caught one.
VERDICT: success

Titans - not really applicable, but anything is better than the old Oilers uniforms.
VERDICT: success

Broncos - another case where I think the new logo is definitely classy, but I still like the old one.
VERDICT: success

Falcons - black on black is so 90's. Red helmets all the way.
VERDICT: failure

Seahawks - the grey was bland and the switch to green was a good move
VERDICT: success

Buccaneers - please.
VERDICT: success

Eagles - a classy update.
VERDICT: success

So overall, in my expert opinion the NFL has done a pretty good job with their helmet updates.

You forgot the Jaguars.  Are they emerging ready to pounce or about to slink back into the shadows? icon_wink

Well look at that, didnt know the Jags changed their helmet this year. A little early to make a ruling, but first impression is that it's a little too futuristic for its own good.

No seriously, you gotta back it up with a reason at least.

Also, apparently the Bills have gone back to the white helmet in the last few years, but no one watches the Bills enough to have noticed.

Personal preference I guess.  I think the new helmet is boring and dull and the new uniform colors are boo.  When they play in throwbacks I think the Pats look much better.  I just like the old school helmet more.

We don't need more time on this at all. It's the ugliest helmet I've ever seen. And that's not even counting the change in the logo, which will make you think you've got the solution settings wrong on your TV. Horrible. Absolutely horrible.

Some of those are ok, but some are downright awful, such as the Steelers, Vikings and Packers. The 49ers is also a pretty bad downgrade.

I thought the Vikings was good!  The other ones you mention are pretty bad though.

In light of the current controversy over their name, he should have redesigned the Redskins logo and featured a potato.
