Mario Williams refered to the Cowboys as "America's team" last night on the news. Someone needs to teach that boy a few lessons!!!

I didn't like the name at first, it was on the bottom of my pick list, but, I've grown to love it over the past 7 years. I remember going downtown to the revealing of the colors and logo and thinking, how in the hell or they going to get away from the "cowboy" image! Not refering to the boys who wear the star either, but, the boots, horses, country hick sort of image. When I saw the LOGO it all fell into place! We had our own identity, that of a raging bull!! I LOVED it and quickly embraced the Texan name, as well as the colors ( I didn't like the red, white, and blue.) NOW, I can't imagine us with anything else. Bob McNair knew what he was doing! After all, he paid 700 million bucks for that privilege!! That little fact all by itself made me say I DON'T CARE what the name is or what color they might wear. We have FOOtBALL in Houston again, thanks to the man with the big bucks!!!

Once again our history from the Alamo to San Jacinto and the original TEXANS when our proud state was a republic makes the "TEXANS" the obvious choice!

Houston Texans

maybe it doesn't mean anything to you, but it does to me.
That's easy.

The Dallas Southern Oklahomans.

For me, I luvs it.
Yes, I like it.

Considering that the first pro football team in Dallas was called the Texans, I think it is funny that a fan from Dallas would ridicule the name.
