| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Where will Brees end up? - Scoob on 8/18/14 at 9:44 pm|
Brees will probably finish 2nd, behind Manning.
Both will pass Favre, but I expect Manning's ego will drive him to keep playing long past his prime, to secure every record.
I think Brees will be more driven by pride, and he will retire when he's no longer playing at an elite level. ...

| SEC Rant|| re: Most Iconic college uniforms? - Scoob on 8/17/14 at 11:51 am|
I'm not sure why Florida St is left out; very distinctive helmets, basically the same unis over the years, and a prominent program from at least the early 80's on. Maybe they haven't been "good" long enough, or maybe the helmet fades away too easily from the stands/TV pics, and you just have a team ...

How do you keep the Oilers/Titans together, yet separate the Browns/Ravens? Sure, there was an expansion team given that same uniform, but the Raven's lineage traces directly to the "good" version of the Browns. If you go by the actual team, they would be way up there.
I would say go by city, bu...

"Iconic" does not mean "coolest" or "best", although a lot of people will have them overlapping.
Here's a test: go find color photos of games, with teams lined up before the snap; go back as far as when they changed away from leather helmets.
