I was checking out some tweets last night and came across a couple from Connor Barwin that asked fans to come up with a name for our defense.

His favorite was Bulls on Parade.

Others tossed out there ranged from okay, Steel Blue Curtain, to terrible, Texans Hold' Em.

What nickname would you give our defense?

Right now, I'm still adjusting from their transition of zero's to hero's. Not sure if I've fully reached a point of familiarity to post up an adequate nickname, but...

I think the BIGGEST attribute that has made them successful, finally, is Wade Phillips - SOB.

Sounds corny, but "SOB-Fense"

I'm sure more than a few Texan opponents have muttered the term SOB this season.

It seems like with nicknames, if it isn't awesome, you're better off without one.

Naming a D should be after a few seasons of domination... not after being the laughing stock of the NFL last year and the best this one... Give it one more year before a name is given..11 games is too early to name one.

Whatever we call it won't matter, because whatever the media calls it is what it's nickname will be. But, for my part, I once suggested The Bull Rush a long time ago. Once we start winning games in the playoffs, we'll get a nick name. Hopefully we'll like it. LOL

for the old regulars who remember this "For the love of God, someone please make a stop on third down" Defense. Something that I have been saying about our d for the last 5 years to the "3rd down, we dont need no 3rd down to make a stop" Defense

or also the regulars will appreciate this. The "ohhhhh so that is what a blitz looks like" Defense

Personally I like the nickname "Texans Defense : No Peteys here." Big play has a different meaning.

Didn't want to start a new thread, and this seems to fit here.

Houston Press has come up with 10 songs for players, and one for the team. Some are pretty good. A couple of the ones I like best:

JJ Watt - Ironman (Black Sabbath)
TJ Yates - Who Are You (The Who)
Texans Team - I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide (ZZ Top)

I still like Damage Inc. They did some serious damage to Atlanta. Besides, it's a cool song with sound bites that are applicable to NFL situations.

I like it!! :thumbup

It represents everything that this defense is all about. Plus, it's just a kickass song from the best era of Metallica, IMO.

I don't like the tendency to grab anything with "bull" on it.

Bulls are not predators. They are cows with horns. Yeah, they can be mean, but so can rats.

At the end of the day cows...errr...bulls chew cud. They are not hunters, they don't eat meat, and they are generally pretty stupid.

And calling Reliant "the slaughterhouse"? Isn't that where they take cows and bulls to be killed to make them into hamburger and steaks? That doesn't represent too well, considering the Texans mascot is a bull and all.

I think we should resurrect the "House of Pain" and call the defense Damage, Inc. They go together! :bat:

I think if we took a poll, "The Bull Rush" would win.

And I think the team song should be A New Level by Pantera. The lyrics are somewhat appropriate.

FOr one.. 99% of the suggestions on here are just horrible. Most of them sound like the title to a really cheesy 1980s action movie. Which... is not surprising since most of them are being thought up by folks who are stuck on 1980s rock music :D.


Why dont you just embrace bulls on parade? FOr one.. its not gay, or lame.. a parade is a military affair and it brings to mind bulls stomping through the streets. For two.. it has a great football song attached to it. For three.. the players and media both seem to be embracing it.

I mean so many of you get on here every year and talk about "what should be name our offense/defense/stadium".. and the suggestions that follow are always a little bit pathetic and a whole lot of cheesy. Now, finally... they have actually come up with a name (a pretty cool and fitting one imo), and you same folks are trying to shoot it down.

Makes no sense. Do you really think that they are just going to pluck some obscure cornball name from some obscure cornball rock band and start calling themselves that for no reason other than "it would be an awesome title for a chuck norris movie" ???

No.. nicknames happen on their own.. which is how bulls on parade is developing. A good song played at the right moment in a historic season. The only thing that will stop it is an idignant outcry from a bunch of middle-aged fans that REALLY wanted the team to be called "Death Corp." so that they would have an excuse to get it ironed on to the back of their karate gi.

It's not a football song by any means.

Rage Against the Machine is one of my favorite bands. But, if you understand who they are, what they are about, and what the song means (you know, the actual lyrics), then it's some Bizarro World stuff that a billion dollar entertainment franchise would adopt it in any sort of way.

The members of RATM are avowed Marxists (you know, communists). This is not even speculation, but by their own words.

The song is about the military industrial complex that perpetuates wars for profit.

It seems like everyone is just focusing on the name and the opening riff of the song, but everything else about the identity is just wrong.

Beyond that, it's just a stupid name for a stout defense. They are not parading around out there. They need a name that represents the grit and aggressiveness of our D. Parades are pageants. They are spectacle. Nobody fears a parade.

I don't really care one way or the other, (and I certainly can't disagree with any of the facts in your post), but I think those raging against the nickname are fighting a losing battle.

“I think it’s official that ‘Bulls on Parade’ is the new name of this defense,” Barwin said after the game. “You could hear it: Every time they played that song, the crowd was like a 12th man. I mean, Matt Ryan couldn’t even get his audibles if you saw him. He was having to walk to every single lineman and tell (them) the play.”

LINK (http://blog.houstontexans.com/2011/12/04/bulls-on-parade-a-nickname-is-born/)

I realize Barwin calling it official doesn't make it so, but if the defensive players themselves are pushing it, the stadium staff is following their lead, the fans are responding to it, and the play on the field reflects the results we want, I'm not really concerned with those not liking it.

I have to agree, it's not an appropriate name for the defense nor is it in the interest of the Texans to be associated with the political aspects of the song. However, after we win the Super Bowl, the celebration downtown ought to be called Bulls on Parade.

Rage Against the Machine is one of my favorite bands. But, if you understand who they are, what they are about, and what the song means (you know, the actual lyrics), then it's some Bizarro World stuff that a billion dollar entertainment franchise would adopt it in any sort of way.

The members of RATM are avowed Marxists (you know, communists). This is not even speculation, but by their own words.

The song is about the military industrial complex that perpetuates wars for profit.

It seems like everyone is just focusing on the name and the opening riff of the song, but everything else about the identity is just wrong.

Beyond that, it's just a stupid name for a stout defense. They are not parading around out there. They need a name that represents the grit and aggressiveness of our D. Parades are pageants. They are spectacle. Nobody fears a parade.


Saying "its a football song" is an easy way of saying its a song with a lot of energy that evokes violent feelings.

I didnt actually mean that its a song about football.

yeah, I kinda' figure. I just have a hard time ignoring what the song is about, but that's just the way my mind words.

Personally, I think Pantera's "Walk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkFqg5wAuFk)" is an awesome riff and the lyrics can really represent what this D is all about.

Plus, they already have this riff in the rotation, Pantera is from Texas, and they are 100% capitalists.

But I'm partial, so I cannot be objective about this song. :headbang:

Brian Cushing thinks it's lame. The Cush does not like it.

I think his opinion should matter, all things considered.

Yeah, I certainly agree. If the players (emphasis on the plural) don't like it, then they need to scratch it. But if the players like the song and it gets them pumped up during the game and causes them to play like they did against Atlanta, then I don't care what you call them.

Well the guys in that picture I posted above would probably like it.


The guys on the defense?? Not so much.

I don't think any of us know what the rest of the players think about it. Hell, my thing with it is I don't care so much about the name. I just think it is a bad ass song and is the type of song that gets people on their feet rocking out. Sunday was the loudest I have ever heard Reliant and people were going nuts when "Bulls on Parade" started playing.

Honestly, I think some of you are too homophobic. Why does a parade have to be gay? A parade is a celebration. You can say something like, "When I am done with you, I am going to parade all over your ass" meaning you are going to be standing over them celebrating after you get done beating the crap out of them.

But what do I know? I mean obviously a parade can only have to do with homosexuals...

It's just a terrible name for a unit on a football team that is supposed to be intimidating. It sounds corny and it sounds soft. It doesn't give me any sort of mental picture of scary defensive team. Fans from other teams would laugh their asses off at us. Hell, just in this thread alone there have been multiple people that have gotten a bad vibe from that name. What do you thin the rest of the league would feel like if half of our fan base wouldn't even like it?
