We’ve seen teams do well when they’ve gone with throwback jerseys. The Green Bay Packers’, San Francisco 49ers’ and Dallas Cowboys’ throwbacks from the mid-1990s are still absolutely legit.
But we have to hand it to Houston Texans star receiver DeAndre Hopkins for pitching these amazing throwbacks on his Instagram page. Whoever did the editing should also get an award here.
For those of you who are not long in the tooth, these were the Houston Oilers jerseys before they relocated to Tennessee in 1996 and eventually rebranded as the Titans.
The white background with the baby blue was so darn fresh back in the day. The red outlines make these even better.
With all due respect to the current Houston Texans, these are about 1,000 times better than their current uniforms.
It’s good to know that Nuk understands history. Now make it happen, Texans — signed a grateful football nation.
Antonio Brown used to be the most coveted receiver in fantasy football, but his shift from the Pittsburgh Steelers to Oakland Raiders may have made way for a challenger to surpass him.
In Michael Fabiano’s early 2019 fantasy football mock draft, the NFL.com fantasy expert has Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins as the first receiver taken off the board at eighth overall.
What Hopkins has been able to accomplish in his career with inconsistent play from the cavalcade of quarterbacks has been remarkable. With Deshaun Watson under center for all 16 games in 2018, the All-Pro receiver caught 115 passes for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns, and collected seven games with 100-plus receiving yards.
Brown is now the one who will have a question mark at quarterback, only because his chemistry with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has yet to be determined. Hopkins, meanwhile, can always be counted on for production no matter the situation with the signal caller.
