Worst nickname ever. I thought it when this thread came about and I think it now. I'm hoping a side effect of the Texans horrible play is this nickname going away forever.

That doesn't even make any sense. We're sticking with Fools on Parade and that's that.

Tools on Parade would also be acceptable.

They should call them the Matadors, because that's exactly how they face opposing offenses this season.

Default Re: Simple question: Do you like the nickname "Bulls On Parade"?

I heard the term "Bulls on Charade" recently and got a good chuckle.

The song is great. Nickname sucks, but I see what the logic was... a bad ass song with attitude.. why not link it to a defense? well... it is what it is, but it doesn't quite do it for me, for whatever reason.

It's still a pretty good nickname, but any sort of team-related saying loses it's punch when the team is bad. Once the team is competitive again, I'm sure #BullsOnParade will be the cool thing to say once again.

"Tha rotten sore on tha face of mother earth gets bigger"

A line from the song, and certainly epitomizes seeing a former 12-4 team meltdown an entire season with an 8 game losing streak.

Time to close the book on the Kubiak era, and let this silly nickname be just another chapter.

Yeah, I don't know if it makes me think the person's a moron, but it kinda pisses me off.

I didn't like it when Barwin came up with it and dang sure don't like it now. This defense hasn't been worthy of a nickname, especially one that was self-promoted. One good season doesn't equal Luv Ya Blue type status, imo

Lets put it this way. If I walk into a room and catch a person wearing an oversized white shirt with "CHOOSE LIFE" on it dancing to "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" then I'm making the same call I'd make if I saw them before a Texans game screaming "BULLS ON PARADE! WHOOOOOHOOOOO!"

Always felt it was pretty stupid considering the context of the song it was based on.

Default Re: Simple question: Do you like the nickname "Bulls On Parade"?

I like it because it fits with the team name and logo, not just the song. Also the Texans cheerleaders still go by Babes on Parade as one of their nicknames. And while you can associate it with the Texans defense, which is lousy right now, I believe they'll do the name proud for the next two decades starting in 2014. Our defense may soon be anchored by two beasts in J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.

I can stomach another six more losses in 2013 if it means a great defense for the next 12, 13, 14, 15 years, etc... etc... We may move back to the 4-3 defense unless Wade Phillips and the current coaching staff stays. I'd rather play a 4-3 with Watt at LE and Clowney at RE. We can fill in two defensive tackles. Hopefully Cushing is back at MLB and have Reed and Mercilus at OLB. Maybe we can draft a cornerback and defensive tackle early in rounds two or three.

It's our defense which needs the help right now. As much as we need a right tackle and quarterback, I'm almost tempted to just bring everybody back on offense next year (even Schaub since he's under contract) and simply try to upgrade right tackle in free agency. We just need to have a healthy Arian Foster and Owen Daniels.

Babes on Parade makes sense for cheerleaders though.

The defense would need to be "Bulls on a Rampage" or something more menacing to have any real bite to it.

Don't like the name, never did. But it doesn't bother me as much these days for some reason. Right now the only nickname the Texans deserve is "Losers on Parade".

The sooner they get past the funk they're in the better, then whatever they're called is fine. As long as they're winning.
