    I guess we could file that under close enough since the grey and white within a shade of each other.

    If someone can beat the Warriors in the earlier rounds, that would be awesome for once.

    It would be and I happen to like both Steph Curry and Steve Kerr. 

     

    I am hoping that would be the Rockets.

    How would you guys feel about color v color games becoming a thing other than color rush? I personally would've loved to see the Chiefs vs Colts with both teams in their home uniforms and tomorrow Patriots in their home uniforms and chargers in powder blue (if the league would allow it)

    They should at least do it for primetime games with regard for color blindness.

    The design decisions themselves come from the Owner/GM/President.

     

    Which make me wonder what plan Brian Gaines and Cal McNair have if any.

    What if the Texans wore red jerseys/white pants/navy blue socks? I think that would be a perfect yet distinctive home uniform. Can someone post a mock up image of that combo? 

     

    Clowney actually modeled this look in a photoshoot. (Thank you web archive.org)

    Also to top it off, theyd counter the Cowboys being blue-primary and the Texans could be red-primary

     

    Red vs blue game. Used the 96 silver pants which matched the helmets.

    I agree it was a great look last year. They need to incorporate red more.

    Red over Navy I didn't like it much as I though I would. Now the inverse I would mind seeing.

    I think the Texans should switch to R/W for home, and W/R on the road. The AFC South is so heavy on blue/dark colors that red would be a much better and give more diversity to that division.

     

    Damn straight.

    OR....

    Texans in columbia and red, with the titans (yes lowercase) in navy and like bronze or something

    Sadly the Texans will never wear luv ya blue. Their identity is based on the state flag so dropping navy just won't happen

    Columbia wouldn't be bad, not mention would link the two Houston teams together.

    IIRC the Texans mothballed the red pants a while ago, although they’re still in Madden (similar to the Bears orange pants).

    Last seen in 2010. I wish they bring them back next year with a navy stripe instead of the white, ditch our original navy pants and use the CR pants with red socks.

    Actually thought the Browns white over brown looked alright against the Ravens black over purple.Maybe the Saints will have the sense to wear black over gold in 2 weeks now that they got smacked wearing the all black.One can hope.

    Wish they pulled a Cowboys and used the color rush pants. Contrasting socks made the brown pants look good as they can though.

    Red Socks.

    The red socks helped the road look tremendously, but that's true for every team that has the ugly matching sock/pants thing going... Contrasting socks improve everybody.

    I agree with infrared... The Texans' uniform has really lost its luster. At first I really liked it but now I feel like I'd like to see something else. Although with the current trends in uniform redesigns, it might not be a good idea to chance it.

     

    I felt the same especially during last season. I think they need more red in general in their uniform scheme. Maybe bring back the red pants to wear under the navy if you don't want to switch to Battle Red as the primary (which I have begged many times for them to do). Or maybe switch the striping on their pants. I would also say white striped socks but that's too derivative of the Bears. Or hell, swap to the CR at their primary with their original navy jerseys as a throwback.

    I'm with you, leave the helmet alone. It's great. 

     

    I cannot imagine them with any other helmet color than navy. Maybe go with red facemasks. I wish they had the white helmet option on Madden like they did in NFL 2K5, not that I want us looking like the Cards.

    I know, someone explained it a couple posts back. It still doesn't really answer my question, it just changed the topic. Why do you detest WAH so late in the season? What difference does it make? That's a serious question. I swear I'm not trying to be a smart ass.

    Wondering this too. Is it because it's theoretically cooler late in the year, so it negates the argument that you might wear white because it isn't as hot? Because I think that argument is pretty much nonsense anyway.

     

    I'm guessing tradition as well. Teams should wear their colors at home or something like that. Or leave the WAH to the Cowboys?


  8. Wish list:

    Texans: bring back red pants for primary or CR jerseys or at least wear red socks with blue pants again. Preferably switch to Battle Reds as primaries.

    11) Texans:  Blue numbers on white jerseys

     

    Navy helmet's made us clones. You can keep your navy numerals.

    Falcons: New set based off of Color Rush. go with white, black and silver britches

    Browns: Pull a Rams and break out new pants as transition between old and new sets. I'll even take brown pants like the CR if they do a proper Brashier Stripe.

    Cowboys: Ditch the seafoam already.

    Colts: White striped socks

    Saints: Stripes on the black pants if you have to have them and white striped socks.

    Patriots: Pats won't change logos until Brady/Belichek era is over. TV numbers on CR.

    Cardinals: Overhaul.

    I have never heard anyone call the Dynamo's stadium Compass Stadium. I will say that rolls off the tongue better than BBVA. Despite that, I am surprised BBVA has kept the Compass part of the name for so long after acquiring Compass Bank

    That's just my name for it. it probably shortened to BBVA or called it by its nickname "The (Dutch) Oven". I'm not saying the whole thing. 


  10. I still call NRG Stadium Reliant. I cut off the BBVA part of Compass Stadium. I try not to catch myself referring to Lakewood Church's past as Compaq when it will always be the Summit. 

     

    And no corporate names preceding the Astrodome please. Or even the Arena.

    I think the Carrier Dome is the best example of this, or Rich Stadium before it. Others say Wrigley Field, but it's not the same Wrigley, right?

     

    The Great Western Forum. Never knew it was named after a bank.
