The Texans actually bought and wore these things? No wonder they got their asses pounded. You can’t just bust out letterman jackets in the NFL and not think anything of it. IT’S THE NFL.
Absolute mind boggling move. Sure, they’re nice jackets but not for the NFL. Serious question: has any other team ever pulled this stunt before? I hope those things were left behind in New England. If you think you can stroll into every stadium wearing those things, your Super Bowl hopes just went out the window.
It’s like the complete opposite effect now. Stereotypical high school jock: wears the letterman jacket, coolest kid in school, big time athlete. Now, you’re like the kid getting stuffed in lockers. Wearing letterman jackets when you shouldn’t/didn’t deserve it. At least wear these against the Jagurs or something. You don’t just roll into Foxborough wearing these then get completely dominated.
Time to revisit the drawing board Houston. Maybe next game roll out of the tunnel like the Purple Cobras. That should do the trick.
