Question If you could change one thing...

... about our franchise, what would it be?

Name one thing you would change if you were Bob McNair.

I assume some would agree with mine. The name. Maybe it takes time to establish, but the Texans just sounds dorky to me. I would use...

Apollo's
Dealers
Hurricanes

I think the name says alot about the entire organization.

I like the name Texans. The name says a lot about the orginization? Dealers? nah....car dealers, drug dealers.....


I'm proud to be a Texan and a Texans fan.




One thing I would change about the orginization would go all the way back to hiring Charlie Casserly. That would have meant maybe no Dom Capers, no David Carr, The Butterfly Effect.

Default Re: If you could change one thing...

If this were day 1 I would nix the Texans moniker and go with something original. To what, I'm not sure but not Texans.

Probably uniforms. I get the red, white, blue bit but our uniforms are so bland it hurts. And then they go crazy red (which is awesome just because it's not bland) and everybody's eyes start hurting. I'd just as soon see them playing in jeans, that would be far more representative!!

Maybe it's just me but I'd rather be 0-0 in the playoffs than 0-1.

Default Re: If you could change one thing...

I'd change the players we drafted...for example, taking Bryant McKinne or Julius Peppers over David Carr. As for the name, Dealers, Apollos, and Hurricanes sound life Arena Football team names.

all the obvious stuff aside like win more games, change the name to an arena name, draft superstar guy etc.... I'd make the logo smaller on the helmets, white over blue as the permanent home uni, keep the enzones blue open the roof more. and so on.

edit: by the way i think "texans" is the most perfect name ever.

Default Re: If you could change one thing...

If the biggest thing bothering you about this franchise is the name or their uniform........then we must have 3 more months to go 'til we see some football.

Honestly, I don't know if there's a whole lot I would have changed. Yeah, looking back now you can say this or that. I think I wouldn't have drafted a QB with the 1st pick. Not just not draft Carr, I wouldn't have drafted any QB to start an expansion franchise to throw out there behind a makeshift line. I would have started on defense. That probably means Peppers.

Agreed.

I wouldn't go as far as "dorky" but we sure as hell could have been more imaginative.


but since you already picked that one I'll go with this one....

I would refrain from letting Casserly chase off all my experienced players - especially the defensive backfield guys - just because they were nearing 30.

When (if that story is true) Casserly came to me (as Bob McNair) with that idea, I would have known was heading my team in a bad direction and probably would have fired him on the spot. No business or other kind of operation can be successful when they just toss their experience base out the door because of some arbitrary age number. That's just dumb. When Casserly came to me with a hair-brained idea like that, I would have canned him outright.

Its one thing if they can't cut it any more. Its another to cull just because of age.

Default Re: If you could change one thing...

Actually, if there really is one thing I would change (not in the past but going forward)... I would make it easier for fans to get autographs of the players the want.

I think it's only fair for those people that support your players, your team, your stadium that they can 'interact' with their favorite player(s). Obviously not all fans can go to lunch or do neat things like that, but something so simple as an autograph. I can't tell you the number of times I've gone to these Texans All Access type of events hoping to get personalized Mario Williams and Andre Johnson's autographs on 8x10 photos I have of them. Only to stand in a line for an hour hoping they are the ones to be seated there and then I find out its Glenn Earl and Von Hutchins (no offense).

I'd love to have a picture with some of my favorite players and their autographs. I don't know the best way for an organization to accomodate this for all fans but I'm a little disappointed with the past and current plans.

I remember when I was little, my dad taking me to an Oilers event where you could get autographs. I brought a football and just about every player there signed it, Warren Moon, Webster Slaughter, Heywood Jeffries.. I still got that football. What actually remember most though is Al Del Greco signing it and then kicking it over the table back to me and me catching it. That's a story that's stuck in my mind for at least 15 years now and that's something I think any big Texans fan should have.

If I could have done things differently, I would have told my coach/GM, that I wanted to build this team around defense. That's were our identity would have been.
