The Best and Worst NFL Logos (AFC East)

The Best and Worst NFL Logos (AFC East)

Sports
With the 2012 National Football League season nearly upon us, now is as good a time as any to obsess once again on one of my favorite topics — logos. So I’m going to offer up my choices for the best and worst team logos for all 32 current NFL franchises. Primary, alternate, and helmet logos listed on Chris Creamer’s outstanding logo website are all under consideration. Today I look at the four squads of the AFC's East division. (For a look at my choices for the best and worst MLB baseball logos, start here!) Buffalo Bills Best I actually dig the Buffalo helmets and uniforms of the late '70s and early '80s, but this speaks to the traditionalist in me.

This post originally ran in November 2005, when the Indianapolis Colts looked poised to unseat the 1972 Miami Dolphins as the only undefeated team in the modern NFL era. They ultimately failed, and so this year the 9-0 Green Bay Packers are next in line for a shot at sports immortality. And wouldn't you know it, the '72 Dolphins just can't shut the hell up. Same crap, different year. I'd like to take a moment to delve into the world of sports. Last night, the Indianapolis Colts beat the Pittsburgh Steelers to go to 11-0 this season. And just like all the other times a team has gone undefeated this deep into the season, we have to watch the graying, braying remnants of the 1972 Dolphins (who finished 17-0) celebrate whenever the last undefeated team loses. And I, for one, have...
