    Please move to appropriate thread if needed.
    I am searching for a jersey with the not so big sleeves like this one:

    Now I am not sure if the above is authentic. I dont think it is. When I go the NFL shop I only see these.

    I dont want the big ol sleeves. I like the ones that hug the arm a little.

    My question is - is there a name for these two different styles? Also if anyone can direct me to where I can get a jersey like the first pic in this thread it would be much appreciated.

    The 1st jersey looks counterfeit.

    Reebok made all the jerseys from 2011 and prior, Nike is the new manufacturer.

    So, if you want one like the 1st one, your best bet is ebay and such.

    I would personally wait and see how the Nike ones look and fit before I go drop coin on an authentic Reebok.

    The 1st Jersey is the old reebok jersey. The 2nd one is the Game Jersey from Nike. It is the cheaper replica jersey. There is also the Elite jersey from Nike which is the actual game worn jersey....around $250.

    The new jerseys are out...i got a Foster at Academy this past weekened. I bought it on a whim, so i haven't even tried it on, but without a doubt it's more fitted than the old ones, sleeves included.

    The first jersey is a counterfeit in my opinion. Well done, though.


    The "Texans" lettering seems to be off. That's usually the giveaway.



    I could be wrong, though.

    Yeah, 93 was available too but that went to Jared Crick. Some of these players that have numbers in the 50s and 90s will get get cut but as of now, the only LB number left is 90.

    The Texans website does list 59 for Mercilus.

    Other draft pick numbers from Texans site:
    4 Randy Bullock
    11 DeVier Posey
    60 Ben Jones
    69 Nick Mondek
    79 Brandon Brooks
    82 Keshawn Martin
    93 Jared Crick

    I wish James Casey would change his number to 12 like in college.
