    Indeed.

    Two prime-time games in two years, both in all red = 6.5 sacks!

    Mario is a beast and sorry to get a little off topic but can we please get a movement going to make Battle Red the official uni? I know the old Houstonprofootball.com site wrote a piece on it a few years ago but really, its time. Look at the slight change something like that can do for a team like the Tampa Bay Rays (slight name change vs. unis). In all honesty even if it did NOTHING for our on field performance those unis are just so sweet. They can mess around and mix in some white pants with em which I think look even better.

    I know some of you believe it will take away from the advantage we have during the two Battle Red games of the year and if they became our regular unis I don't expect the winning percentage to stay at its ridiculously high rate but I just think its time to make a bit of a change.

    Kornheiser is a really funny guy. He is great on PTI.

    But he doesn't know enough about football to be calling games. I think that is the beef most people have with him.

    Maybe the next step as a franchise is to not rely on a uniform to "get up" for a game.

    Exactly.

    Our guys were fired up for this one.

    Where is this type of fire every week?

    I think we should go back to having two battle red day games a season.
    Then reserve it for the playoffs

    Battle Red uniforms shouldn't be the official uniforms but I like them as a once or twice a year thing.

    Mario was awesome, and has shown he can step up in big games. He did it in college as well. FSU vs N.C. State on national television in 2005 he dominated. I was at the game and he completely shut down our offense.

    The guy has a knack for making plays in big games. Something that will be crucial in our movement foreward as one of the better teams in the AFC south.

    A prime time player comes big on the national stage.

    I think with that Mario may just have booked himself a flight to Hawaii.

    I'd be fine with changing to the battle red jerseys permanently, but IMO all men look stupid in red pants. It just looks gay, not that it's popular to say there's anything wrong with that.

    After the first drive, I think Tony needed a cig. He was all over AJ.

    We should wear the blue pants with the red jerseys. It looks better.

    the only thing that makes me chuckle about that clown is his ridiculous attempts at comb-overs..... quite possibly top 3 of the worst of all time right behind Trump & paolantonio.

    absolutely awful

    Just change the pants and you've got something really good. Only two other teams (Atlanta and Kansas City) feature red uniforms with any regularity, and I'm not sure the Falcons do that anymore. Blue is everywhere in the NFL: heck, the other three teams in our division wear a shade of it at home.

    I'm no fan of Kornheiser, either. He does have a wit, but he thinks he is way more clever than he actually is. Still, I thought the announcers did a fantastic job of discussing the teams when they weren't talking about what just occurred on the field. They clearly did their homework (e.g. commenting on how Garrard beat us scrambling in the first game, discussing Kubiak's assessment of Carr leading to the decision to not draft Vince Young, etc.) and were ready to talk about both teams during lulls in the action. For outsiders tuning in, it was a really good introduction to the Texans' storylines. A few gaffes aside (who is this Vonta Lynch?), it was a really nice job by the announcers.
