See Every NFL Team Reimagined As A "Game Of Thrones" House

When you can even make a team named the Browns sound badass, you know you're onto something.

NFL players style themselves as warriors, and the league—with the epic theme music and glorious, slow-motion imagery that dramatizes those players' on-field efforts—does little to dissuade fans from mythologizing the game. But Reddit user Tim Proby took the league one further with his epic, Game Of Thrones-style sigils for all 32 teams. "The NFL and Game of Thrones both have drama and fan reaction that you don't see anywhere else in entertainment," Proby, who plans to continue tweaking the images, tells Co.Create. "The passion of both fanbases is equal."

The handsome images—which we're pretty sure the NFL ought to start licensing for T-shirts, like, right now—build off of each team's existing iconography, paired with a cool-sounding slogan, to cultivate a GoT-House-looking banner that celebrates the glory of each team. Some of them come very naturally—if not for the tiny football in between the crossed blades on the Tampa Bay Buccaneeers' flag, the image of a clipper ship with the words "Let the Cannons Loose" could well be a teaser announcing that some new tough guy pirates are set to appear on Game Of Thrones season four. Others, like the Miami Dolphins helmet-wearing porpoise jumping through a bright orange hoop over the slogan "From the Depths We Rise," highlight Proby's talent for making even the more innocuous-sounding team names look badass. In every case, though, the imagery at work here represents each club the way that the fans—and the NFL itself—like to think of the teams: as warriors doing battle for great glory. "Forged by Fire of Hardened Honor," indeed.

    the designs are great, the slogans are mostly horrible.

    Seriously, Cowboys "The Star of the West"? the person who made these knows nothing about Texas do they? If it doesn't include the words "Lone Star" in there, it would never be accepted.

    I like it. I think the Saints and Seahawks have the best words "We Come Marching" and "Deafening Is Our Roar"

     I, for one like the artwork. But, as a N.O. fan, I'm disappointed with the slogan. How about something a little more intimidating, like: There Are No Saints on the Field of Battle?
