Default Re: I See Red

Personally I like the idea of going with red as it would help Houston's sports teams develop an identity. Think Pittsburgh. EVERY team wears black and gold. If the Texans went to a red jersey, they would follow in the steps of the Rockets and Astros (yeah I know the 'Stros are more rust colored, but it's still closer than Steel Blue is to anything another Houston team wears).

Basically the Texans erred when they first started by picking by far the most popular color schemes in football. The Giants, Patriots, Bills, and even the Titans all use Red, White, and Blue as their colors (yeah the Titans use a smatter of red and two shades of blue, and some of them also integrate gray into their uni's), and I think they would've been better served to go with an identifiable individual color scheme personally.
