Jersey that is almost a 100% "lock" is #80.

You know you're tempting fate by getting any other Texans jersey. #80 is the way to go.

I think #56 and #99 are gonna be staple jersey numbers in the future as well but you never know with these things. #23 has already secured his spot for a while at least, unless he really just tanked CJ2YPC style.

He's gonna wear 60.

They have the jersey numbers listed on the HT.com site.

That's a great choice though I think #23, #56 & #99 at this point are pretty safe investments as well. At some point in time, they'll all be obsolete but I think it will be quite some time and probably wear longer than the awesome #80.

Edit: Didn't read down far enough, Ryan is speaking truth.

Default Re: Jacoby's Gotta Go/**UPDATE**Released

here's how i found out, and my response; all via gmail chat...

Quote:
him: You finally got your wish.
me: they traded/fired jacoby?
him: Put him on waivers today.
me: finally
the texans board i go to is probably exploding from everyone posting their happiness
i kind of feel badly for him, because he is actually a good guy and a good teammate, he just sucks on the field
him: Ha
obviously he doesn't completely suck, and to a degree, i agree with his agent. jacoby has made things happen/helped kick-start the offense on more than one occasion. and he is one of only a handful of players where their mistakes completely over-shadow their successes, even if the successes were to out-number the mistakes. in our case, i would assume that comes from not having another very reliable receiver. yes, KW and OD can be solid, but they don't really fill-in/replace AJ. And since no one else can really replace AJ, that left JacJo as the default fill-in, setting expectations too high, too soon.

i'm sure people will disagree, but that's what i think.

and this is coming from someone who has wanted to see JacJo go for 4 years now. though, i'll readily admit, most of that animosity was purely reactionary and not logically based

anyway, the most important piece of this post is:

Not that you'll ever read this, but I wish you well Jacoby. I hope you find your fit in the next team you sign with, and I also hope that you're able to bring your game together and turn into a star player. Though, I also hope you don't make us eat crow for letting you go by helping to beat us in a post-season game

I still say #80 has those guys beat.

Things can always change with 56, 99, and 23.

But 80? It's Texans forever, 100%. As in take-it-to-the-bank.

That was my reason for getting AJ's jersey several years ago. I thought long and hard about which jersey would have the best chance at "staying power." And it looks like he will be the Texans player with the longest history and the most remembered career here.

Sure, he might go play a final year for some scrub team...they all do that, it seems. But we all know he'd be back Jerry Rice style to sign and retire as a Texans. He will go into the HOF as a Texans player too. #80 is a Texans fan's best chance at staying power with a jersey.

GP, don't be scaird to get any of these numbers as well, for the same reason. I'd bet they ain't goin' anywhere either. Except up the record books.

What's the obsession with having "current" jerseys? That's foolish. Who cares. Yeah it sucks that a player might move on or get dealt or whatever, but think of it as a "museum" of sorts, and as proof to yourself that you've been with the team through thick and thin.

Do you wear the charm bracelet your first love gave you? What about a wedding band from an ex-spouse?

There's an emotional attachment to these thing. That's the obsession.

The moment he got taken in the third, specially from a small school his expectations were set by this staff. He was undoubtedly THEIR guy. Physically he has the tools to be a good #2, mentally it turns out, not so much. He just couldn't string it together on a regular basis.

I do hope a change of scenery and maybe being put in a spot where he doesn't "feel" fans expectations so heavily, allows him to develop into the best he can finally.

Interestingly enough, my first real love gave me a customized Texans jersey with my FIRST name on the back. Who DOES that? I wore that every damn gameday through the 2010 season. Last year I decided I wouldn't wear it, and it was our best season yet.

Thinking I should burn it for good, hahaha.

But on another note, I have 3 or 4 Phoenix Suns jerseys and neither of the players play for the team anymore but I still wear them.
