Sometimes the marketing departments of NFL teams can't seem to get out of their own way.
Never is that more evident than when it comes to horribly designed helmets that are anything but works of art.
Which one do you think takes the cake for worst NFL helmet? Vote below to let us know which one you think is the most hideous and boring.
Sometimes a marketing department can outthink themselves, and that's what I think went down in Jacksonville a few years ago. The two-toned look simply does not work on this helmet.
Can the Jacksonville Jaguars not come up with a better helmet than this? pic.twitter.com/qYCNcV8ygj

Anybody know when the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to finish painting their helmets?

From the team's inception in the late 60's until it changed to the striped variety in 1981, Cincinnati had perhaps the most boring helmets in the history of the NFL.

For some reason I'm totally OK with the white background version of the Oilers' helmets, but the silver background variety used between 1966 to 1971 never did it for me.

The Houston Oilers gave young males a massive steel erection. To look at. Oh, the plans we had for that helmet….. pic.twitter.com/lOMrxDwJaU

San Francisco 49ers
In 1991, the 49ers' front office thought the franchise needed a makeover and thus this helmet was announced that February. The outpouring of disdain from fans swayed the squad to return to its classic "SF" logo.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Nothing wrong with the Bucs logo, but that orange though!

Maybe the lesson here is that orange isn't such a great color for professional uniforms. And the star for an eyeball makes the horse look dead at first glance.
Drooling over that Broncos mini helmet. Went to Denver in '94 and they wire that uniform for that game. My desk at work pic.twitter.com/vO3p2rxpRX

Easily the most boring helmet in the NFL.

New York Giants
NFL fans: "The Cleveland Browns helmets are boring."
The New York Giants: "Hold my beer."

New England Patriots
Apparently the old Patriots' logo played center.
