a couple of things...

1) the retail jerseys will not have the same cut, they will have a more generic football jersey cut.. almost shirt like..

2) do you not wear undershirts with your team jerseys..?

I like the flywire collar, have since first seeing it today. But I think it would be a lot better if we could get steel blue and battle red to alternate with the flywire collar (battle red on the raised "stripes", steel blue on the lowered ones)

Also, note that not all the teams have switched to the new design. The Raiders are sticking with Reebok, at least for this year. There are a few more teams, I believe, that are doing the same.

theyre definitely not staying with reebok, they've rejected the "elite 51" designs, but nike is still making their uniforms...

I didn't initially like the Texans jersey, but it doesn't look bad in comparison (still like Denver and Seattle's better from this group):

You sure hit that nail on the head. At a grocery store in Seattle there's a rack full of various neon green Seahawks gear. It's painful to look at even for a colorblind person. LOL

I've got to say, on reflection, I like the new Texans gear a lot, it looks like its fitted a lot better than the Reebok stuff.

Can I just ask, with all this stuff about the different levels of jersey you can get, all the ones I've got have the holes punched through a printed number, yet when I see the players wearing them, the numbers look solid and sewn on. Can anyone advise what jersey I need to buy to get this? All the stuff I get is official stuff, but I've found the numbers begin to wear off within a year (the only guy repping the Texans round Llandudno lol).

In the early pictures I thought that the uniforms as a whole fitted funny, but there growing on me and I think the Texans Uni is one of the best looking ones if not the best.

The Replica have the holes through the numbers. The premier and authentic have the numbers sewn on. Although I don't know if those names translate to Nike.

30 years from now, the Texans logo and jersey design should still be the same and something people associate with the Texans when they see it. The Packers, the Cowboys, the Giants, and most recently the Jets (who have gone back to their old Jet logo) have all understood that you stick with a logo and a look...you farm it for all it's worth. Switching it up every five years (like the Seahawks do) affirms that they are more concerned with their image, trying to be relevant, when they should be concerned with winning instead.

An owner makes fans mad, too, when they have 12 different looking jerseys and are always having the fans buy the newest design. Seems cool when you're a young fan...as you get older, you realize you just want everything to look the same. I know I do, at least. The broad red collar is as funky as McNair wanted to get, obviously. He's not the poster child for radical change, either, so you'll be waiting a long time for a re-design of our stuff.

My thoughts exactly.

I want the Texans to be like the Packers, Steelers, Bears etc. You KNOW right away who it is when you see them. A tweak here and there maybe, but no drastic overhauls.

There's one big caveat, however: No alternate jerseys were shown Tuesday. Word through the grapevine is that several of them are in the works, including one for the Redskins. No word yet on when we'll see these (maybe at the draft?), but it might be that Nike and the NFL have decided to stick with conventional primary uniforms and push the envelope with the alternates.
Maybe we'll get something cool for the battle red jerseys

Now that I've had time to look at them all day, I like them. The solid secondary colored collar really does make them unique. The slight change, is cool.

looks like the panthers managed to have a solid color collar that isnt massive as the texans.. they are one of the teams who turned down the "elite 51" uniforms..
