This week I will be writing about the NFL's Houston Texans who play in the American Football Conference's South Division.
The search for a new team for the city of Houston began in 1997 when Bob McNair and Chuck Watson were looking to replace the Houston Oilers, who had moved to Tennessee. In 1999 the city of Houston would get a shot at another franchise. The new team would become known as the Houston Texans.
The Houston Texans did not do well in their first few years. The team’s worst season came in 2003 when they went 2-14. Their best season was last year when they went 10-6 and made the playoffs for the first time.
The Texans’ head coach is Gary Kubiak, who took over for Dom Capers, who was the head coach from 2002 to 2005.
Some of the past players were: Kris Brown, David Carr, Neal Rackers, Steve Slaton, Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans and Eric Winston.
Some of the current players are: running back Arian Foster, tight end Owen Daniels, defensive end J.J Watt, quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson
The Texans play their home games at Reliant Stadium which has been their home since they came into the league. The stadium played host to Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004
The Team’s colours are navy blue, red and white, and their logo is a bull’s head. The colours resemble the state flag of Texas.
Houston’s home jersey is navy blue with red stripes and red and white numbers, the away jersey is white with navy blue stripes and red and navy numbers, and the alternate jersey is red with navy stripes with white and navy numbers.
That’s all folks!
