    A suggested design. http://nyg.247sports.com/Gallery
    Personally, I think I prefer this to the current version - the red breaks up the dark blue and is much more attractive.
    What do y'all think?

    Thanks for that.
    I C&P'd it so I don't know why it doesn't show it and now I can't find it again.
    Even my history doesn't show it.:smiliepalm:

    Either way, no.

    The uniforms are fine as is. Brand identity is important.

    What's brand identity important for that I as a fan of being entertained by the team should be concerned with?

    I mean, very many of the best, most successful, historically relevant franchises in sports have hardly if ever changed anything about their look.

    I'd like to become one of those franchises.

    Are you implying causation here?

    Maybe a different model of helmet, but I absolutely DO NOT support any sort of color change, uniform or logo redesign. I've seen nothing but tacky ideas from fans, and hope our front office have NO part of it.

    Successful franchises let the results speak for themselves and don't try to change logos and uniforms and color schemes every two years to drum up attention.

    No franchises used to try alternate colors/schemes, but it wasn't because it prevented success. It just hadn't become a thing until recently. Now many of the big boy franchises use them.

    I HATE THE HELMET, THE LINK, AND ALL OF YOU!!!!!! :splits:

    And it's still my opinion, out of all the helmets ever worn by any pro football team in Houston, the Gamblers still have the best.

    Just kidding about the hate remark. I just hate some of you, not all. LOL

    The red jersey is really cool and makes the uniform pop. The blue on blue is dull to me. If I could change anything about the Texans uniform I would make the red the official jersey. Other than that, nothing unless they got the rights back to the Oilers name and uniform (which would ever happen and McNair wouldn't want anyway).

    I hope they take the total ketchup bottle uniform and banish it to the Phantom Zone. Red jersey, OK. Total red, total yuck...IMHO.

    Seeing as this thread is sorely lacking in it's very own concept, how 'bout some helmet edit ideas?

    and my personal favorite that should absolutely come to life on top of their proposed color rush uniforms ...

    Ive always liked the white helmets. The flag one would be my favorite of that bunch.

    The one second from the bottom is pretty close to the one I saw - It had a bit more red extending to the top and the logo was a bit bigger.
    Both look good though.

    I vote to keep the helmet colors as they are. The red or white just seem tacky! The deep steel blue uniform looks best, in my opinion. I hated the ketchup bottle look with the blue helmet. Just didn't match and looked stupid. Kinda like the Giants or 49ers color rush uniforms with completely different color helmets, just disgusting.

    I like the last one alright but would rather not see the team make any unnecessary changes.

    All white helmets. No names on the jerseys. Like Penn St. You earn the privilege when you win a Super Bowl.
