Proposed new Houston Texans uniforms are pretty sweet


Proposed uniform changes for NFL teams is nothing new. Every week, some sort of idea seems to pop up – from radical redesigns to Star Wars themed tweaks to subtle changes. Most are interesting, but fairly laughable.

One new batch, however is worth taking a look at. Jesse Alkire, a freelance graphic artist / designer from Chicago, recently put his spin on each NFL team’s uniform, offering a creative touch to all 32 sets of duds. And most of them are pretty darn cool.

As for the Houston Texans, he made some changes. He explained why on his web site:

“New helmet a manifestation of the team’s primary logo – horns on the left and right, heavy red stripe down the center. More cues from the team’s primary logo throughout, with stars on the sleeves and a horned stripe on the pants. Alternate ‘Battle Red’ uniform an option for marquee matchups, such as playoff games or rivalry games.”

Here’s what he came up with:

Pretty sharp. Who do we need to call to get this done?

    Looks like a messed up backwards Vikings horn on the helmet. Leave the uniforms and helmet bulls alone.

  • Victor Jarvis

    Looks like a Nike swoosh. Epic fail.

    I like the bullhead as is. Leave the Uniform alone.

  • Randy

    Ok with the uniforms. Don’t mess with the helmet, and don’t mess with Texas

  • Larry

    Keep The old Helmet Bull logo, get rid of the star, too close to Dallas. The rest is fine..

    • Chuck

      My sentiments, exactly….

  • Chuck

    Awful…colored belt loops look like cheezy league nite softball uniforms….Hideous

  • Jethro

    NOTHING has been “Proposed” It’s some dude with too much time on his hands. Oh, and BTW they look hideous!! But we all clicked on the link so I guess it worked.

  • Yozzy

    Not impressed. Could be worse, though. At least black or teal weren’t incorporated in the color scheme.

  • Mike hurtig

    Horrible! Whichever idiot came up with this, needs to go work for Jerry Jones!

  • Lem

    Texans are not bully. Why We don’t call Houston Hellfighters. Black for oil, Orange for flame, Blue for sky and white for clouds

  • Paul

    Horrible! The uniforms are good as is!

  • tom

    Are you kidding me? The more this guy changes the original designs, the worse they get. I see he is freelance. Maybe that’s because no one will hire him.

  • Jana

    NO, NO, NO!!! Take that nasty star on the sleeve back to Dallas. The helmets are ugly, too! Quit messing with a good thing. HATE ‘EM!

  • Terry Ritchie

    This is not Texan-esque. The horns on the helmet and the pants are are too much like Texas Tech. The stars on the sleeves are too much like the Cowboys. I am open to a style change but this is not it.EPIC FAIL on Nike’ part.

  • Paul

    I’ll meet you half way. Change the uniform if you must BUT LEAVE THE HELMET ALONE!!!! The new one looks like crap. Most important lets worry about who we put in the uniform and less about what it looks like.
