To me it does look like they went with the flywire collar. Look at the width of the collar compared to the other teams that have the flywire..It's the same except our is red...

Seems to me that would be part of the reason for the fattening of that part...

I don't understand why the flywire part can be every color except red?

Why would it have had to have been blue?

The Broncos is orange...The Vikings is purple...

They can't make ours red?


Our Jerseys are cut the same way as the other teams with the flywire collar...You can even see where the seem is...It's in the exact same place...Only difference is ours is red all the way around...

If the other teams had the same color all the way around they'd have the fat collar look like us.






The jerseys are cut the same as the other teams with the new designs...

Seems like the only difference is our collar is colored all the way around.

Nike specifically notes that the Texans uniform does not include Nike's flywire technology in the neckline.

I know that...

I'm just saying that I don't see why they couldn't have still had it and made the collar red...

If you look at the Pats their collar isn't even cut the same as the other teams...

Oh, I thought you were saying that maybe someone asked Nike to make the flywire red, and that's why the collar looks as wide as those that do have it

I think I need to lay off the forums for the next day or two, until my ability to comprehend written word has returned

Nah....I didn't really word it all that well...

Basically I guess I'm asking why couldn't the Texans have gone with flywire AND kept the red collar? Does it have to have that break in it?

yes it does, because the part of the collar that is the flywire is one solid piece of material that extends to where the numbers are sewn on.., a new material is used for the collar part around the neck..







so the texans chose to not use the flywire in order to keep the solid secondary color around the entire collar.. the steelers, chiefs, patriots, and texans. are the only teams that use the new elite 51 uniforms without the flywire, but the steelers and chiefs collar is their primary color. while the patriots have a striped collar making the texans the only team with the elite 51 unis and a solid secondary colored collar..

As other's have stated, I like our Uniforms, just the overall classic simplistic scheme of it and the colors. Steel Blue, White, and Battle Red nothing to flashy and over the top. I don't know about a purchase soon, since Nike and the NFL have stated no to little changes for the first year or two but after that, I'm sure Nike will want to tweek some stuff for most if not all the teams. I do like the Seahawks uniforms, but it seems like it would get old after a while.

But for now, the tee shirts will do, love them so far.

I am assuming that a lot of the cosmetic changes are also to make it easier for refs to spot some of these new penalties the NFL is imposing.

Yup. Hate the Reebok stuff. I am glad Nike took over but I have to be honest... I'm not too crazy about the collar. Reebok did good with the jerseys. I just dislike all their other products including shoes and tshirts.

My exact thought. Couldn't have said it better. I like the old unis much, much more. But then has been pointed out prior I fall into the old fart traditionalist category.

Oh well...
