i've said it a hundred times. all the great teams of the NFL have consistent uniforms. they don't change them up for special days. they just wear home and away and they win football games.

green bay packers
pittsburg steelers
dallas cowboys (allthough this is not as true for them)
chicago bears
indianapolis colts
these teams are the heart of the nfl and they are consistent symbols of winning football.

red leotards are not.

I LOVED them. Power red! I must have a really bad memory though because I seem to remember them all in red before, just no stripe or maybe a blue stripe down the pants. Think of the picture that is everwhere of Faggins standing on the wall after he jumped up after a touchdown. He was all red I believe looking into a sea of red fans.

Does anyone know which picture I am talking about.

As far as the Cowboys Uniforms, they are the WORST! Now the new darker blue shirts with white that match the star on their helmets I like.

But those other white shirts with royal blue numbers and sea foam green pants that I suppose are supposed to be gray, with a white helment with a dark blue star on it. WHO put that scenario together? They must be colorblind.

Go Battlered!

If you want my opinion on fashion, no, I didn't care much for the all red. I thought they looked like a high school team.

But since I don't spend a boatload of Benjamins to watch fashion shows at Reliant, and instead do it to watch FOOTBALL, I couldn't care less what they wear as long as they play like they did last night.

The red pants reminded me of college uniforms. I would have liked to see the red helmets - what happened there?

They gave out Battle Red T-Shirts at the gate as you entered for the game. Some people are just A$$eS I guess.

When I saw them in all red all I could think of was “Who let the Bengals on our field?” They were a little gaudy for me, but hey, if it works, they could wear chartreuse fringes on pink jerseys for all I care.

No, wait minute, I don’t wanna see that.

I know most people don't care about my opinion, but here we go anyway.

At first, I thought it was the best thing I've ever seen. Was like O_O Woah, that's frickin' cool.

Towards the middle of the game, I felt the red was a little too bright.

I DVR'd the game, and checked them out there, and woah, on TV, they looked badass! Wow. I want to see Blue Jersey/Red Pants next. O_O

Call it mixmatched day. I don't care, as long as I get to see.

I figured most people because most people had jackets on, you couldn't see the red fully.

I really like the Liberty white (all white), Deep Steel Blue (all blue), and battle red (all red). I think it looks cool as long as you just throw it in every once in a while. Besides..... we played really good in them.

The absolute most unchanged uniforms belong to my boys the BROWNS.

But yeah, I thought the all red looked sort of cartoonish, but hey, if they come to work like that when they wear all red, then lets bring on the red.

Not keen on the all red, then again I'm not that keen on the all blue. Quite like the all white though.

I thought the all red made us look like we were wearing out house long johns.

The only thing missing was the poop flap.

McNair had two looks going for him with that red jacket on, Malcom McDowell as the Devil or the bell hop at the Apple Tree.

But hey, we won and that is all that counts.

That was my thought as I headed to the game, that having the battle red game at night in December was not the best way to get the whole stadium dressed out in red. We put long sleeve shirts under our battle red jerseys and were warm enough, but if we had to go to coats on top to stay warm, red would have been hard to come up with.

Well I was one of those without red on. I only found out I was going to the game a few hours before it started, have no red Texans gear and because I was unprepared to go to the game I got there too late to get the free shirt. And I have no money to but one when I got there because it's christmas and all of my money this month goes to Santa.

That's my excuse anyway.
