NFL logo rankings: Where 49ers compare to division rivals, NFC foes
No. 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
For the Bucs, this isn’t a bad logo necessarily, I’m just a bit intimidated by it. But hey, that’s probably a good thing. I appreciate the swords around a football, but also worry it would simply create another “Gate” associated with Tom Brady.
No. 9: Los Angeles Rams
Th Chargers might not appear on this list, but the Rams are alive and well.
The new logo features a very modern take on the LA letters with some of the horns built into it. Not great.
Not to mention the fact that the logo has gone through so many alterations, it’s unrecognizable at this point.
No. 8: Minnesota Vikings
Luckily the logo is not a new player on the Minnesota Vikings. The Norseman has been the face of the logo since the team’s beginning in 1961.
And that mustache is fierce.
No. 7: Philadelphia Eagles
Remember those puffer jackets the cool kids wore in elementary and middle school with the NFL logos on them? For some reasons, I associate each one of those jackets with the Eagles.
I can’t bash on that -- I never sported one of those.
No. 6: Green Bay Packers
I always respect a logo and a team that can rock unique colors. Green? Absolutely. Not to mention the idea of the helmet logo came from the Packers’ team equipment manager working under legendary coach Vince Lombardi.
It's also difficult to picture Aaron Rodgers in anything but green and gold.
No. 5: Seattle Seahawks
I absolutely love how modern the Seahawks logo is without taking away from the historical vibes most logos have. There is a lot of history and meaning attached to why they chose the Seahawks as the team name. And you know they have plenty of fan support as well.
No. 4: Arizona Cardinals
Before the Cardinals stuck with the bird’s eye logo, they were experimenting a bit. One of the original logos was of a muscled cardinal running with a football.
Now, they have a bird with attitude ... and Larry Fitzgerald.
No. 3: 49ers
The 49ers logo has stayed relatively the same since 1968 with the “SF” letters in white with a red background, but recently received a more modern up lift with a black outline.
There’s just something so classic and clean about it.
No. 2: New Orleans Saints
Everything about the Saints’ logo is great. The modern fleur-de-lis hasn’t taken a lot of alterations over the years, but the gold and black with the white outline is a chef’s kiss.
No. 1: Dallas Cowboys
The reason why the Dallas Cowboys are at No. 1 is because of how recognizable the blue star is.
It speaks to the NFL from the uniforms down to the iconic cheerleaders and a wonderful dedication to the nickname of Texas, “The Lone Star State.”
