I hope Wade or Gary, someone pulled Barwin and Cody to the side and told them to grow up. Comedy is good in small doses to help ease tension but those two keep taking it to stupid levels and make us look assinine.

However, it is what those jackets represent. The whole "high school kids getting on a yellow bus" vibe is kinda' strange for a pro team that has Super Bowl aspirations.

Some of the players were saying last week that this was one of the biggest games in franchise history (including AJ).

They were geeked about this game and came out flat.

Meanwhile, the Patriots, a team with championship history, just saw it as another game on the schedule. They gave props to the Texans as being a good team, but they weren't amped up for it. They are used to "big games".

The difference is that the Patriots acted like they had been there before, while the Texans were acting like a bunch of school kids on a road trip to the 5A championship game in Odessa. That is what those jackets represent, the attitude of a team that was acting like it had never been there before.

And this is why I think the Texans are still growing into the role of being a top-level team. Everything this franchise does has been gradual steps. They learn from mistakes and mature with each step. It's why I do not think this year will be a Super Bowl trip, but I do think they are going in the right direction and will use games like Monday night to grow into a truly elite team.

It's not a bad thing. This franchise is still young. Growing pains and all that stuff. It's just something we need to understand as fans.


rep if I could

Kevin Walter was on 790 this morning and confirmed that they won't be wearing those jackets again, unless it's to New Orleans maybe.

Cute idea by Barwin though, might want to come up with a fancy way of getting to the QB instead.

I don't want to see those jackets again until they each have a Super Bowl patch on them with the words "World Champions" underneath it.

Then all is forgiven and everything's just fine.

Let the credit/blame be placed in the right place - it was actually Cody's idea.

The jackets were sleek-looking, and probably very expensive, but kind of high-school-ish, IMO. I'm glad they're no longer wearing them.

The one thing I like about McNair is that he will buy his team whatever it needs. I'm betting he spent a pretty penny on those jackets. Too bad his team then went out and screwed up.

It was an effort at motivating themselves and teambuilding that at best didn't have the hoped for short-term impact, and at worst ended badly.

Pro athletes do all sorts of weird/funny/stupid things to motivate themselves and build chemistry. Unfortunately -given the way things went - this one was more high-profile than most. I'm simply not gonna get too down on these guys for consciously trying to do something to give themselves and edge - even if it wasn't all that effective.

I agree. I'm all for team-building and camaraderie; I was just commenting about how un-professional the jackets looked, and about how it's likely McNair shelled out some serious cash. I'd be shocked if those jackets ran for less than $1000 a pop.

They should keep wearing the jackets. Just worry about the next great idea during the preseason or something.
