What's The Most Embarrassing Houston Texans Jersey A Fan Could Own?

The answer might not be a straightforward as you think, which is a rather sad testament to some of the players who have donned a Texans jersey. Battle Red Blog examines the possibilities.

For The Win recently published a list of the most embarrassing jersey a fan of each NFL team could own. Here was their choice for your Houston Texans:

Houston Texans: David Carr

Texans fans got a harsh introduction to the jersey-buying game.

David Carr was undoubtedly a colossal disappointment, but is his jersey really the worst one a Texans fan could have? Unfortunately for those of us who pour an unhealthy amount of time and energy into following the team, the lifetime roster is littered with names of players who came in with much fanfare only to deliver a fraction of what was expected.

Is a David Carr jersey really more embarrassing than someone deciding to pay for an Ed Reed Texans jersey?

What about Tony Boselli?

Mike Flanagan?

Ahman Green?

Travis Johnson?

Jermaine Lewis?

Ryan Mallett?

Rahim Moore?

Eric Moulds?

Amobi Okoye?

Jacques Reeves?

Robaire Smith?

D.J. Swearinger?

Todd Wade?

Jonathan Wells?

Someone else?

Not to overly romanticize David Carr's time in Houston, but I think there are a host of Texans jerseys I'd be far more disgusted to own instead of Carr's.  What say you?
