    I ran across this site looking for Texan-Bear pictures and for some of you that like the NFL and its history. I think it is cool to look back at actual newspaper clippings and such. I don't know what all this site has on it,for I just now found (so it may not be much)

    Unfortunately the WFL saw fit to move the team to Shreveport during the first season and renaming them the Steamers.

    Charlie Frazier is a great guy. I've known him since I was about 10 and you will never meet a nicer guy.

    I'm going to get a cap or maybe some t-shirts made of their old logo with the new Texans colors. I think that old logo goes really well with the new colors.
