As the NFL wraps up its 100th season with Super Bowl LIV, we look at the top 100 uniforms of all time ranging from the Bumblebees to the Creamsicles.

100. 1931 Philadelphia Eagles
As we move up the list, we’ll get to some classic looks. At the 100th spot, not so much. The Eagles thankfully left these things in the background after wearing them as a throwback in 2007.

99. 1994 New York Jets
The Jets wore these as a throwback in 1994. Here’s a question… when were these uniforms ever worn? The answer is never. The rest of the uniform is pretty, but the helmet is unfortunate.
MIAMI, FL – DECEMBER 05: Running back Ricky Williams #34 of the Miami Dolphins carries the ball during a NFL game against the Cleveland Browns at Sun Life Stadium on December 5, 2010 in Miami, Florida. Cleveland defeated Miami 13-10. (Photo by Ronald C. Modra/Sports Imagery/Getty Images)
98. 2010 Miami Dolphins
The teal and orange color scheme is always going to be classic, but these number fonts are a blight. Miami went to these in the mid 90s and frankly, the uniform and team have never recovered.
PHILADELPHIA – NOVEMBER 07: Quarterback Peyton Manning #18 of the Indianapolis Colts adubiles at the line of scrimmage during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 7, 2010 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles won 26-24. (Photo by Hunter Martin/Philadelphia Eagles/Getty Images)
97. 1954 Baltimore Colts
This helmet is maybe the weirdest we’ve seen. So weird, it had to make the list. The horseshoes were actually on the back of the headware in the mid 1950s for Baltimore, for reasons nobody really understands.
PITTSBURGH, PA – OCTOBER 09: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers hands off the ball against the New York Jets at Heinz Field on October 9, 2016 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Steelers wore their Throwback Uniforms. (Photo by Al Pereira/Getty Images)
96. 1933 Pittsburgh Steelers
Bumblebees or a prison jumpsuit. Either way, if you’ve seen the Steelers wearing these, you aren’t going to forget. Pittsburgh thankfully evolved over the years, but this edition of the uniform is memorable.
NEW YORK – CIRCA 1967: Running back Floyd Little #44 of the Denver Broncos carries the ball against the New York Jets during an NFL football game at Shea Stadium circa 1967 in the Queens borough of New York City. Little played for the Broncos from 1967-75. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)
95. 1967 Denver Broncos
Did you know the Broncos played one season without a logo on their helmets? Yep, 1967. Denver was giving the vintage look a chance, but it lasted only 14 games before going to the John Elway era threads.
25 Sep 1994: Quarterback Heath Shuler of the Washington Redskins looks to pass the ball during a game against the Atlanta Falcons at RFK Stadium in Washington, D. C. The Falcons won the game, 27-20.
94. 1938 Washington Redskins
Throwbacks are always fun, especially when you picture them during their actual heyday. You can see Sammy Baugh wearing them. The red helmet and gold mask/numbers/pants aren’t a great combination, but they were worth bringing back for a few games.
12 Sep 1993: Quarterback Drew Bledsoe of the New England Patriots passes the ball during a game against the Detroit Lions at Foxboro Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Lions won the game in overtime, 19-16. Mandatory Credit: Rick Stewart /Allsport
93. 1993 New England Patriots
These lasted for a single year before being switched up. the biggest complaint is the white shoulder numbers against the bright red chest numerals. Plus, RIP Pat Patriot.
22 Sep 1996: Quarterback Steve Beuerlein #7 of the Carolina Panthers looks into the back field as he turns to hand off to his running back during a play in the Panthers 23-7 victory over the 49ers at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. Mandato
92. 1996 Carolina Panthers
Carolina entered the league with these, and they haven’t changed much save for adding the black and electric blue alternates. The sleeve sand pant stripes leave smothering to be desired, but the color scheme is solid.
ST. LOUIS, UNITED STATES: St. Louis Rams’ Kurt Warner hurries to complete a pass in the third quarter of the game against New Orleans Saints in St. Louis, Missouri, 28 October 2001. Warner completed 30 of 48 attempts and threw 4 interceptions and was sacked twice as he lost for the first time at home in the Dome at America’s Center.

91. 2001 St. Louis Rams
Of all the Rams’ jersey iterations, this was the worst. The blue and gold is the best. The blue and white was passable. This was bad from the huge side panels to the brownish gold pants.
