Default Lamar Hunt Trophey

Always have that mental picture of Coach Cowher holding it in the air as well as other Steelers.

The trophey looked nice and had history. What was the piece of crap they gave out this year? It looked horrible. It will really look bad beside the traditional trophys in the Steelers offices.

It didn't hit me at first when I was watching, but I thought about it later when watching a replay. I have no clue why they changed it either. I wonder if they changed the Halas trophy too?

Looks like it is made for the winner of a High school championship team. Thank goodness the Lombardi trophy is still the same.

The old version was big and had gold and awesome... The new one is just a pile of junk tin they got some clown to form into a shape of a football.

It looks OK to me. I can't remember the old one to compare. They changed the Halas too. The Halas looks identical to this. In fact, I saw the hals first and thought it looked cool.

Can't please everyone.

ETA: Went back. The old one looks good too. I guess the old one is a little better.

They changed both. I hate it. The other had tradition and was classy. This is cheap.

Halas and Hunt were always the same. The old ones were the same except Hunt had a big A on it and Halas had a big N on it

They should change it up every year, and the trophies for each conference should atleast look different. NFL is very un creative with trophy designs in general. Like why does every superbowl trophy have to look the same? change it up a little or something.

You know...I never realized that the old ones (Hunt and Halas) were the same too. I guess I just assumed they were different and didn't pay much attention to it lol.





I do like the old ones MUCH better though. They don't look nearly as cheap.

*Edit* Sorry lion, just saw you posted the pics too lol.
