Will you please fix the ”Houston Texans 2009 Uniform Combinations” portion of the website?

It shows a Titans helmet in our away game against St. Louis. That’s unacceptable.

Thanks,

Bill

Ok, here's my take;

again;

The Texans have WAAAAAAY too much going on with their unis. There's too many combinations. They have no identity. It will be 3 years in a row now where our national exposure game shows the team in red. The rest of the world thinks we where red. Not that I give a crap what everyone else thinks, but still.

When highlights are shown from the rest of the season, nobody ever notices the Texans 'cause they aren't in red. You don't have that happen with the Steelers, Packers, Cowboys, Raiders, etc. You KNOW it's the Steelers because they're ALWAYS in black and gold at home, white and gold on the road. That's it!! Except for throwback day of course.

With the Texans it's a potpourri of combinations. Who are we? Let's get a freaking identity. Blue tops/white bottoms at home, white tops/blue bottoms on the road. That's it!! Have red once a year. I don't even have a problem with the all white opener, but geez, let's tune the fashion show down a little. There's only 10 home games and they've got 15 freaking combinations they gotta squeeze in there.

It's football not a fashion show!!!
Props. Must spread rep yada yada yada...

The 6 different uni combos for 8 home games just serves to remind me how much the marketing department is involved with operations for this team.

Old school football fans tend to want TRADITION, like dark jerseys at home, light jerseys on the road. The only reason we have battle red is the throwback jersey trend which has been created as a revenue stream (i.e. taking fan money and streaming it to the team's and NFL's bank accounts).

I will only wear my dark jersey to home games now. I don't care what the team is wearing. I've got my home jersey. I'll leave color coordinating to Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

Imho White / Blue en Blue / White are the best combinations. Don't like the red outfits that much.

I don't like wearing white tops at home, unless the Texans officially make that their home color like the Redskins and Cowboys and Dolphins do.

And red on red is flat disgusting. Ax the red pants and go with white. Red tops with white pants is the way to go.

Red on red rocks! I love the white on white as well! The white tops and blue pants can't be more boring!

Default Re: Texans release 2009 uniform combinations

I've got a degree in graphic design. And for a good NFL look, it's all about the balance of colors, the distribution (unless it was the Fouts-era San Diego Chargers which looked interesting despite the lack of).

And I've got to say that I like the variety of combinations the Texans have as far as uniforms.

These aren't the Steelers, Packers, Cowboys or Browns who keep a basic look. Not all teams have to follow "tradition" just because they do.

But the variety of uniform combos has to be the right one.

White on white: Not the most exciting but for "Liberty White" Day, OK.

White on blue: The standard for early home and usual away games.
Blue helmets, white shirts and blue pants. Red numbers, blue stripes on the jerseys. Yes. Thank God they did away with those red socks. Distracting in a bad way.

Blue on blue
: Really, really dense but OK for "Deep Steel Blue" Day.

Blue on white
: The standard for late home games and certain road games when opposing home teams choose to wear white.

Red on red: No good. Tony Kornheiser was incorrect when he said they look like "ketchup bottles." Try Fanta Strawberry Soda bottles. Or Revlon Shampoo. Blue helmets on totally red outfits...bad balance.

Red on blue
: A look the Texans have never tried yet certainly more balanced than red on red. But that's not an NFL look.

Red on white
: Now that's a great way to utilize the red jerseys for "Battle Red" Day. Good, clean but exciting when red is to be worn.

Now if the Tennessee Titans can make their helmets blue if they insist on dark blue pants...otherwise they look much, much better with the Columbia Blue pants with white shirts but that's another thread.

The red on red is not an NFL look either and I agree with your point that it is not balanced. Actually pretty hideous. I like the red jerseys however with the red pants they are overkill. I think they look good with the white pants however I they may not look that bad with the blue pants either.

Of course like everything you have to see it to really know.

I think the results might be different if you actually posted a picture of all the combinations. That red on red is hideous IMO.

I agree. The red on red is hideous. Now that you show it, red on blue is actually a cool look but more "Arena League."
