    "Roustabouts"? Good Lord that's horrible. Houston Warriors was a name not on there that would have been good I think.

    12/2/07, second series Tacks game... There was no doubt this team needed to upgrade it's o-line. Rolled like a two bit genderly challenged montrose man.

    That was a cool set of videos . It was nice to take a trip down memory lane .


    Roughnecks .......... I'm glad that wasn't selected . The "Rednecks" references would run wild .

    Ive always thought it would be cool to see some of the helmet , and jersey renderings for the other names that made the final list . Was the color scheme and jersey/helmet design changed ? I heard somewhere the Texans were gonna use Red , Blue , and Gold until the Rams came out with their gold color scheme . Probably not true , it would be cool to see what that would have looked like though .

    Thanks for the videos Bud !

    Best moment for me when we knew Houston had been given awarded a franchise. It went from all the talking head "No way Houston gets a teram for many years" to a team and a Super Bowl granted.

    I think the finalists for names were:

    Texans
    Apollos
    Stallions
    Wildcatters
    Bobcats

    I thought the name Apollos was cool as is Wildcatters. Can't complain about "Texans" though. I probably liked Bobcats as well back then, but ever since the Charlotte Bobcats came into existence I can't help but think about those hideous colors.

    We were going to use the Blue on the Rams uniform but Mcnair saw it and didn't want us to have the same color.

    some may not agree, but I believe the "high" point of the franchise was last season when we were playing the colts in week 3. I don't think I can ever remember anticipating a Texans game as much as that one. You had 2 undefeated teams, a new look texans team, the defending superbowl champs, a division lead on the line, etc. Unfortunately we lost and the game didn't live up to the hype, but just the atmosphere around the city at that time was great.
