I hope that we continue with our three (now four with the all whites.... here we go) uniforms.
Actually, we technically have FIVE unis if you also consider the all-blues we wore against the Colts.

1. Blue top / white bottom
2. Red top / white bottom
3. White top / blue bottom
4. All white top & bottom
5. All blue top & bottom

I also kept my white mini helmet, and one day it will be worth some $ to some crazy collecter. Not to mention some of the promo Houston NFL 2002 stuff I kept also.
Maybe we could wear them against Dullass!

When the team was preparing the uniform approvals, I believe that McNair asked the NFL to have two helmet color combos but was denied. If I'm not mistaken he proposed the blue one for home games and something unique for the road uniform - different colored helmets to match the white uniforms.

We need a "Texans FAQ" thread for things like "NO, the Texans never wore a white helmet" and "Chester Pitts DID NOT play guard in college. He was ALWAYS a LT".

We should get started early dispelling the myths before they become entrenched.

Can I count the guys in Texas uni's on the "unveiling" stage that day?

I clearly stated at the beginning of this post that the white helmets were "pre-uniform". If you go back and read it you will see that my question was weather or not there was ever any intention of having white helmets.

I'm not as big a fan as the white jersey as I am of the blue and the red ones, cause white does feel a little plain. However, I could deal with a white helmet with red facemask because of my memories of the Oilers. Be a sligh way of legally sticking it to Bud.
