I don't get the love for the Chargers helmets. I liked their blue ones better.

There should be a NFL rule...if a team moves, the colors and name stays with the city. Like what happened in Cleveland.

"Texans" is the kind of obvious, safe, bland, unimaginative nickname you'd expect somebody like MaNair to choose for his Houston-based team. Also maybe he thought the nickname would appeal to fans outside of Houston, but he really should have concentrated on securing the patronage of Houstonians and taken any support of other Texas residents outside of the city as icing on the cake.

Re: Are the Texans helmets not bad ass???
Apparently not as bad ass as the Gamblers helmet according to my poll. Still it's a very good helmet. Like a lot of folks around here, I didn't really like the team name when it was first announced, but I loved the logo.

Now, of course, I like the name. Just hope this year they do something to push that name into the NFL fans mindset.

Well that's fine. They still have another 40 years of ineptitude to go before they match the other team that used to play here, so I'm not that worried about it right now. The only thing I miss about those teams are some of the individual players. I could care less about that franchise as a whole anymore.

Let's see. He has one of the longest consecutive streaks of sellouts in the league and has one of the best supported and most valuable sports franchises. Something tells me he already "secured the patronage of Houstonians".

The Texans logo is arguably a fantastic work of art. I think it single-handedly saved the franchise from what is frankly a lousy name. When the name was announced prior to the logo reveal there were a number of skeptics and nearly all of them were placated by the logo and colors. It looks good.

Over the past decade however I feel like the logo hasn't aged as well as I thought it would. The helmets from the front have these two stupid little red cartoon "devil horns" on them. I don't know if that was intentional or not but they look silly to me.

In my case it's like this. I thought our helmet was bad ass when it was first revealed. Today I think it's not the worst helmet out there but we could have done better. It's not going to be a "classic" I don't believe.

They could have come up with a better 5 that made the final cut but of the ones that did; Apollos, Bobcats, Stallions, Texans and Wildcatters, and even though I thought it was stupid at first, I'm glad they went with Texans.

Wildcatters? Really? Bobcats are Takei. I just don't see the connection with Stallions. The only other possibility would have been Apollos even though that was a bad minor league hockey team here in the early 80's. And you think the "Houston, we have a problem" thing is worn out now, being called Apollos would have made that 100 times worse, especially with the play the last 9 years.

I'm good with Texans, I'm good with the helmet and logo and the uniforms. Just wish they'd stop with the 1,000 different combinations........oh, and start winning! Don't give a crap if they wear polkadots if they just win.

I love the Texans Helmet & Logo & the whole bull theme, with out being called the toros or heffers or moos....

The robot bull animation they play before/during the games are awesome, along with Thunderstruck..

I love the Texans.

Even though I think it's really, really cheesy I have to admit I always enjoy that.

I had no idea that the fans were going to be the ones "thunderstruck" though. They should do a video with the Bull running around the stadium while we're getting our asses beat pounding fans who boo or leave early.
