I have no idea why I care about this (http://www.houstontexans.com/gameday/2009UniformCombinations.asp), but every year - I do.

TWICE we have to deal with the ketchup bottles. I wish they'd bring back the original red tops w/ white pants.

Yes, I'm complaining about uniforms. I know, it's lame. I know, I shouldn't care.

Yeah,
I did not think i cared either, but I clicked your link, so I must.

Oh and I am not a huge fan of white shirts and white pants. It just looks really weird to me.

We should be white on white at home and make other teams where their dark colors. Then, make the stadium a little warmer and open the roof in the hot Houston weather. Thus, giving the Texans a competitive advantage. Amirite?

We're still not in the regular season so everything and anything Texan is OK in my book! :)

Here are the votes from the Danish Jury:

White-White - One point
Red-Red - Two points
Blue-White - Three points
Blue-Blue - Five points


What about white-red, we'll look like Danish national players! :)

I have an art degree from UT, so my opinion counts more.

Blue on white is my favorite. It's a grounded and balanced combination, commanding respect.

White on blue might seem bland, but it's a reminder that we're traveling to play football, not dance around in tiger stripes or lime green accents.

Red is high frequency and savage, but ketchup bottles aren't cool, so it needs to be contained with white pants.

White on white is too Denver Bronco-ish. Other than being a better team, we already have enough trouble distinguishing ourselves from them.

My thoughts exactly. I wish we would wear the white/white on the road, it looks old school and classy. I do like the red/red though. On Madden 10 you can mix up the jersey combos down to the socks and shoes, its pretty cool. OK, that's my fashion take for the year. :cool:

My least favorite are the all blues. Having the same color jersey and pants is kind of high school IMO. Does anyone have a picture of us wearing the red jerseys with white pants. That was really cool. The only thing going the ketchup bottle is that we have played really well wearing them so if they keep it up I am fine with it.

I'm another that doesn't like the red on red with the blue hat. I also don't understand why we have to wear white at home early in the year before winter. Supposedly it's because white is cooler, but we have a roof policy that closes the roof if it's even lukewarm. Don't really understand that one.

Hervoyel
08-18-2009, 01:07 PM
If I owned this team red/red wouldn't exist. We'd wear our home jerseys when we were at home and our away jerseys when we were away (unless the home team dictated othewise).

We'd always wear the opposite color pants (blue/white, white/blue).

Twice a year we'd wear our Battle Red jerseys at home and if we played in prime time that would be when we'd do it at least once. I'd save one of the days though for a Sunday game.

We'd wear those red jerseys with either blue or white pants but never red. It does not look good in my opinion.

Finally the jersey, colors, and logo we have right now would be the only ones any of you would ever get to see because the Texans would stay unchanged in appearance for as long as I lived. I hate it when teams tweak their looks all the time. Changes if necessary should be subtle. There should rarely be any need to change anything. That's how you get a classic look like the Steelers or Packers have. That would be my goal with the Texans.

My standard Uni post is something like this:

We're a young franchise. We need to form an identity. Consistency is key. We wear Liberty White over Steel Blue the most. We should stick to that at home and for the majority of road games where the home team wears dark jerseys. This will ensure that we wear that combination the majority of the time. Our Steel Blue over Liberty White combo can be the alternate jersey when the home team wears white (dallas, etc.) and that should help form a visual brand to the Texans name. Battle Red over LIberty White combo for special games ONCE A YEAR.

Go Texans.

Dan B.
08-18-2009, 01:42 PM
I like the red because other Houston teams have red as a primary color. I like the idea of consistency across teams. IMO, the coolest thing going for Pittsburgh's teams is they all wear black and gold. I also think that our standard uni's look generic. There are fewer teams wearing red than there are wearing blue and white.

I don't see how ANYONE could argue that the red on red combination isn't by far the best uni's the Texas have ever had. I love the red on red. Red is power, and it makes them look more intimidating. I hate the white jerseys. They are so freaking boring. The Blue over the white pants has always reminded me of the Broncos when they wear those jerseys.

I think we should stick with calling the uni's by their names. Steel Blue, Battle Red, and Liberty White.

Totally agree. The Texans represent the Texas spirit of independence, which is composed of strength, courage, and liberty. As opposed to the Dallas urban cowboy spirit, which is composed of rogue degenerates, rhinestones, and cocaine.

They could wear pink with purple polka dots for all I care, just as long as we win.

I had an idea for a team that would have red tops and argyle pants. Since that would look kind of British, they would be called the Redcoats, and they'd be in the AFC East so they could be the arch rivals of the Patriots.

Good thing I'm not an NFL commissioner.

Finally the jersey, colors, and logo we have right now would be the only ones any of you would ever get to see because the Texans would stay unchanged in appearance for as long as I lived. I hate it when teams tweak their looks all the time. Changes if necessary should be subtle. There should rarely be any need to change anything. That's how you get a classic look like the Steelers or Packers have. That would be my goal with the Texans.

I still hate the Astros' red uniforms, because the Navy/Orange/Yellow jerseys of the 80's were the most attractive and characteristic in their history.

I don't see how ANYONE could argue that the red on red combination isn't by far the best uni's the Texas have ever had. I love the red on red. Red is power, and it makes them look more intimidating.

Unless the opponents have giggle fits because the Texans look like they're in unitards and helmets.

My thoughts exactly. But, we're old school, and the ADD-fan does not find our old ways to be exciting these days.

All red looks like used feminine hygiene products to me. Sorry to be gross, ladies of the board, but it's the first thing that comes to mind when I see FOOTBALL players decked out in all red unis. I really hate the look and reminds me that money is what so much of this is about. Put white fluff on their ankles and wrists and call them Santa Claus. It just looks cheerleaderish, IMO.

We're on the eve of the most anticipated season since 2002 and we're talking about fashion???? Still???

Ok, here's my take;

again;

The Texans have WAAAAAAY too much going on with their unis. There's too many combinations. They have no identity. It will be 3 years in a row now where our national exposure game shows the team in red. The rest of the world thinks we where red. Not that I give a crap what everyone else thinks, but still.

When highlights are shown from the rest of the season, nobody ever notices the Texans 'cause they aren't in red. You don't have that happen with the Steelers, Packers, Cowboys, Raiders, etc. You KNOW it's the Steelers because they're ALWAYS in black and gold at home, white and gold on the road. That's it!! Except for throwback day of course.

With the Texans it's a potpourri of combinations. Who are we? Let's get a freaking identity. Blue tops/white bottoms at home, white tops/blue bottoms on the road. That's it!! Have red once a year. I don't even have a problem with the all white opener, but geez, let's tune the fashion show down a little. There's only 10 home games and they've got 15 freaking combinations they gotta squeeze in there.

It's football not a fashion show!!!

Subject: Houston Texans 2009 Uniform Combinations


Will you please fix the ”Houston Texans 2009 Uniform Combinations” portion of the website?

It shows a Titans helmet in our away game against St. Louis. That’s unacceptable.

Thanks,

Bill

We're on the eve of the most anticipated season since 2002 and we're talking about fashion???? Still???

Ok, here's my take;

again;

The Texans have WAAAAAAY too much going on with their unis. There's too many combinations. They have no identity. It will be 3 years in a row now where our national exposure game shows the team in red. The rest of the world thinks we where red. Not that I give a crap what everyone else thinks, but still.

When highlights are shown from the rest of the season, nobody ever notices the Texans 'cause they aren't in red. You don't have that happen with the Steelers, Packers, Cowboys, Raiders, etc. You KNOW it's the Steelers because they're ALWAYS in black and gold at home, white and gold on the road. That's it!! Except for throwback day of course.

With the Texans it's a potpourri of combinations. Who are we? Let's get a freaking identity. Blue tops/white bottoms at home, white tops/blue bottoms on the road. That's it!! Have red once a year. I don't even have a problem with the all white opener, but geez, let's tune the fashion show down a little. There's only 10 home games and they've got 15 freaking combinations they gotta squeeze in there.

It's football not a fashion show!!!

Props. Must spread rep yada yada yada...

The 6 different uni combos for 8 home games just serves to remind me how much the marketing department is involved with operations for this team.

Old school football fans tend to want TRADITION, like dark jerseys at home, light jerseys on the road. The only reason we have battle red is the throwback jersey trend which has been created as a revenue stream (i.e. taking fan money and streaming it to the team's and NFL's bank accounts).

I will only wear my dark jersey to home games now. I don't care what the team is wearing. I've got my home jersey. I'll leave color coordinating to Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

There, I think that's what you wanted to say. Hey TB, what's your opinion?

Imho White / Blue en Blue / White are the best combinations. Don't like the red outfits that much.

I think all the current uni combinations look awesome... Now if they ever combine blue pants w/ red jersey or vice versa that would be fugly

I don't like wearing white tops at home, unless the Texans officially make that their home color like the Redskins and Cowboys and Dolphins do.

And red on red is flat disgusting. Ax the red pants and go with white. Red tops with white pants is the way to go.

Red on red rocks! I love the white on white as well! The white tops and blue pants can't be more boring!

I've got a degree in graphic design. And for a good NFL look, it's all about the balance of colors, the distribution (unless it was the Fouts-era San Diego Chargers which looked interesting despite the lack of).

And I've got to say that I like the variety of combinations the Texans have as far as uniforms.

These aren't the Steelers, Packers, Cowboys or Browns who keep a basic look. Not all teams have to follow "tradition" just because they do.

But the variety of uniform combos has to be the right one.

White on white: Not the most exciting but for "Liberty White" Day, OK.

White on blue: The standard for early home and usual away games.
Blue helmets, white shirts and blue pants. Red numbers, blue stripes on the jerseys. Yes. Thank God they did away with those red socks. Distracting in a bad way.

Blue on blue: Really, really dense but OK for "Deep Steel Blue" Day.

Blue on white: The standard for late home games and certain road games when opposing home teams choose to wear white.

Red on red: No good. Tony Kornheiser was incorrect when he said they look like "ketchup bottles." Try Fanta Strawberry Soda bottles. Or Revlon Shampoo. Blue helmets on totally red outfits...bad balance.

Red on blue: A look the Texans have never tried yet certainly more balanced than red on red. But that's not an NFL look.

Red on white: Now that's a great way to utilize the red jerseys for "Battle Red" Day. Good, clean but exciting when red is to be worn.

Now if the Tennessee Titans can make their helmets blue if they insist on dark blue pants...otherwise they look much, much better with the Columbia Blue pants with white shirts but that's another thread.

The red on red is not an NFL look either and I agree with your point that it is not balanced. Actually pretty hideous. I like the red jerseys however with the red pants they are overkill. I think they look good with the white pants however I they may not look that bad with the blue pants either.

Of course like everything you have to see it to really know.

I think the results might be different if you actually posted a picture of all the combinations. That red on red is hideous IMO.

I agree. The red on red is hideous. Now that you show it, red on blue is actually a cool look but more "Arena League."
