Do you know what pants they will be wearing for what games or does that depend?

Based on their past history, they will wear white pants with the blue and red jerseys, and blue pants with the white jerseys.

They've only gone monochrome twice in their history, an all-blue look against Indy in week 16 of 2006, and all-white against Philly in week 1 of 2006. They have an all-red set listed, but have yet to wear it. My bet would be they won't go all-blue again this season.

This season will be the fourth in a row they've worn the red jerseys against the Jags.

I believe the Texans have said that they will go monochrome twice this year. They have one week chosen for all blue and one all white. They even had special names for the weeks that they will be going monochrome.

Whats the point of randomly wearing white at home when you play in an indoor stadium?

just like last year they are wearing white at home when the dolphins are playing them.

is there some sort of aqua curse? i know the dolphins wear white at home cuz the weather.

But your right. why does it matter if your playing in an indoor stadium.

The Texans play in a retractable-roof stadium and usually have opened the roof if it's not raining.

That used to be the case before Sept of 2005. The Texans decided to wear white and keep the roof open for an early Sept game against PIT. It was a warm day and it got up to the high 90's inside the stadium (on the field and in the lower tier - the air conditioning doesn't work so well outside the concourses when the roof is open). More than a few people complained, expecially after the Steelers killed Houston and the whole "make-the-opposition-wear-dark-jerseys"-thing blew up in their face. So last season, the team instituted the 50/80 Rule for the roof. The outside temp has to be between 50 and 80 degrees, and there can't be any precipitation, for the roof to be open.

So the white/blue jersey home switch has more to do with giving the home fans a chance to see both sets of jerseys than any practical purpose anymore.

I remember that game. I remembered thinking why the hell would they open the roof when its above 90 degrees. the part of a roofed stadium in the south is to keep fans out of the heat. It was obvious the heat didnt stop the steelers that day. There has been an on going trend of more teams wearing white at home and its not just because of the heat. Ive noticed the saints have worn white at home and i know its not to keep their players feeling cooler.

There aren't any Red pants anywhere in their uniform set...where did you hear/read/see this?

I actually made a mistake there. After having a closer look at the table I am maintaining in my Who Wore What When thread, the Red/Red combo is an unused one that I had listed for "completeness". :wacko:

The thing im really curious to know, does Reliant Stadium have as horrible a roofing system as does Minute Maid? I remember during the ASG in 2004 I sat upper deck, and with the roof closed it was even hotter than it was with it open. By far the most miserable ive ever been at a game.

oops

I would say Reliant is completly different. I've been in every part of both stadiums as a fan and working for the media. The glass has a lot to do with the temperature in Minute Maid. I was also at the All-Star game in Houston, the media sat in the upper deck in dead centerfield and I didn't think it was really uncomfortable where were you sitting.

Upper deck, about a fourth of the way down the first base line, so I wasn't anywhere near the glass, I was closer to the metal roof and concrete back wall. I dunno though, im used to the high being 75 with zero humidity :P
