They can serve in the military. They can wear berets. They can wear their badge in the pride parade. What they can't do is win a Super Bowl.

Broncos lost Super Bowls until they ditched the pastel then they won a couple. Tampa never went to a SB, ditched the pastel and won one. Oilers never went to a SB. Any teams still wearing pastels? Chargers I guess - never won a SB.

Are you devoid of (that means an utter (which means complete lack)) all reason or do you just attempt to come across as a historically ignorant and obnoxious person?

That's a rhetorical question, which means I don't expect a response or anticipate any response will be on par with cranial flatulence.

Oilers jerseys were classics, anyone says otherwise has no taste in my opinion. Fantastic uniforms that were very distinctive and tightly connected to Houston.

Having said that.....

I'm sorry but it doesn't work. Perhaps if the Oiler's had simply gone away instead of becoming some other team (and one in our division no less) then sure, it could have been cool. Since the Oilers became the Titans it's a no-go.

The two uniforms are both very cool I think. The only way they mix well at all is with the darker blue going into the old Oilers uniforms. Reverse it and it becomes a travesty.

Best not to forget history.........

I actually like them. Maybe because i am younger and never had strong ties to the oilers, but i think they look pretty BA. The oilers are the history of the city of Houston. No shame in that.

This is just something photoshopped by a fan, right?

If the Texans were to going to go "throwback", the helmet they actually never wore would be an idea.

Confession time: I have never, ever liked the Columbia Blue. I was a kid when Earl was truckin' folks and used to try to emulate him when I played football. I loved the team. I lived and died with those LYB teams. Never gave up on them even in the days of Ed Biles and Hugh Campbell (though I did love the Gamblers). But I never, ever liked that color. Never bought a jersey, and the only Oiler memorabilia I ever had was a pennant signed by a dozen or so Oilers. Even my football that's signed by Earl is a UT football.

Hate that color. Hate, hate, hate. And yes, 'cak .... I even poked fun at infantry guys when I was in.

Oh HELL to the NO on that uniform. I never understood the NFL's stupid need/desire to wear the throwback uniforms, they're ugly thus the reason teams don't wear them anymore.

LOL at the pic of Satan shooting the bird.

I don't think the uniforms look bad, but their current ones are so much better. But, if it in any way could piss off DumbAss Bud, I'd vote yes in a second on them.

The Ravens don't wear Colts colors, the Rams don't wear Cardinals colors (although a red helmet with a white ram horn might look pretty cool, photoshoppers?). The old Oiler columbia blue was awesome in it's day, but that day is gone. The Texans are not the Oilers.

And the day we wear that uniform, the Texans go up 35-3 early in the 3rd Quarter.....

Uh sorry!

Anyways, does anyone remember when we played The Rams one year and it was the same day that we had Houston Oiler appreciation day with like Heywood Jeffires there. Texans were winning 21-0 and even HWNWNBM was looking all pro with 3 TD passes. Then half time came, they introduced the old Oilers and the Texans lost in the 2nd half to Fitzpatrick. BOO!!!!! I loved my Oilers but I don't want to relive them.

Honestly, I never really liked the sky blue either, especially not with red.

Sky blue is not ugly; it's just not masculine enough for NFL football. This is not an insult to the old Oilers players; it's just not what most adult men want to see on a football uniform. 'Course, we can't have 32 solid black teams either...

Hey, I know it's garish, but it's still pimp in a '70s way...still this is the only "throwback" the Houston Texans could/should wear. Ever. It won't happen, but man it would turn heads around the NFL (probably with a lot of laughs and snide remarks).

The 1974 Houston Texans.
