I don't really give a rat's ass about anyone's take on our cap numbers, since it's all guesses except what's actually published. But it's regarding the team, so it's discussed.

Anyway, I hope it's the quality of the pic, but that looks more like "Battle Red-Orange" than Battle Red. If that's an accurate representation, then not a fan.

The Texans horn (on locker) in the Myers battle red photo is also orange'ish...so I think it's the lighting or the camera had a flash that washed out the red, making it orange'ish.

Myers looks uncomfortable.

Something about the pants and the sleeves just doesn't seem quite right.

But if they say it feels good, great.

I think the red unis look a hell of a lot better than the blue ones. For me, it seems like the thick collar is more tolerable aesthetically.

The shoes

OK, that's very different. Anyone care to speculate on the cost of a Nike authentic jersey? The Reeboks listed for $225. I'm thinking the Nikes go for $300.

I saw this and now must have them.

I'm used to seeing the fat guys being fat...but those pads sticking through the front of the gargantuan V neck just kinda....well, blows. It looks like they mis-measured the uniform collar. Are you sure this isn't the cheerleader mockups?

What's up with the orange or is my color blindness just worse than it was yesterday?

The orange where red should be and the "black" where steel blue should be has to be the effect of bad locker room lighting. It's not you, its the bad lighting. I'm thinking the colors would look truer if they'd taken these photos in sunlight.

yeah, thanks...all I know is when I see a plunging neckline like that, I expect to see boobs...and I'm not talking Casserly and Carr.

Authentic's are $250, not that bad. I'm hoping to get a reebok one for under $100 but man, the fitment is soooo bad on the reeboks

Like I said earlier in this thread, the $250 price tag on auth jerseys is going to keep the Asian knock-off people in business for a good while.

Looking around Reliant and just watching NFL games on TV I am seeing more Asian knock off jerseys than real licensed jerseys (both replica and authentics combined). Personally I don't get it. The NFL could sell auth jerseys for around $80 and those flimsy replicas for around $30 and still make a huge profit. I would think most serious fans would opt to spend $80 maybe even $100 for a real NFL jersey over spending say $30 for an Asian knock off. However at $250 probably 80% or more will keep buying the auth knock off. Bottom line is if the NFL lowered their prices they would probably make a lot more money.

Personally, if I spend $250 for a football jersey I would probably have to shell out thousands more for divorce proceedings.

Part of me wants to get those knock offs because they're so dang cheap, but the other part of me refuses because they look awful. I just can't get past those thick, shiny numbers.
