Nah, they had to get the whole team to say yes to this, so they could pay for them.

They all like them, and the fact that they get to wear them on the plane to NE.

i can certainly appreciate them wanting to keep it within the team, since it's something new and original to the team ... it would be pretty cool if it remained a texans' players exclusive both as the only team and only custom for players themselves. that doesnt change the fact that i think it's awesome and i'd wear one if i could lol.

as for what to put on it, anything. favorite player's number, a 10 year patch, 11 div champ, hopefully a lombardi award etc etc.

Well, I could see a similar but not the same fan version of that and it wouldn't cross the line in my eyes. If I went after trying to make one I'd follow the general idea but steer clear of an exact copy of what they did. I mean, there's Battle Red and Liberty White still available as a dominant color.

I agree with this. I think this should just be a team thing, patches for accomplishments and stuff, but not a fan base thing.

This is also a fashion thing in my eyes, many players on the team are very fashionable individuals. Letterman style jackets are "in fashion" right now.

I mean looking at them posing, think its awesome though for both reasons.

I like it. Builds camaraderie among the players. Even if they don't stay texans or new guys come in, they will always have those memories from when they were here no matter how short or brief.

As much as this game is about the business, it's nice to see some guys who are enjoying the experience.

I like letterman style jackets and If it actually got colder in Houston I would get one without the patches.

I would not feel odd wearing it all - I would rock the heck out of one of those. We're talking about a letterman jacket here, not their boxers

If they think it works then good for them. It's pretty cheesy, IMO, but that doesn't mean it's a terrible idea. I think it's more of a camaraderie thing for the team than anything else. As a fan, I wouldn't be caught dead in a "letterman" jacket for a pro team. That's reserved for high school for me, but if it helps the Texans players to wear them by all means go for it.
