NFL Corrects Perception, Texans Were Represented in Simpsons-Super Bowl Commercial

The NFL set straight the ongoing rumor that the Texans were the only team not represented in the Simpson’s Super Bowl commercial this past Sunday.  The commercial featured Simpsons characters from episodes dating back to its show debut that aired in 1989.  Many thought that the Houston Texans were the only team to lack a team jersey or logo; however, Robert Stecklow, the NFL’s director of advertising and media made his correction:

“We absolutely included all 32 teams and you are correct, Mrs. Flanders (Maude) is wearing a ‘battle red’ Texans jersey, although the blue looks very black on the sleeve.”

Maude Flanders is the deceased wife of Ned Flanders, the Simpsons okolie-dokolie neighbor.  Reports have it that she wore Arian Foster’s “23” battle red jersey.  Outside the NFL’s correction, some say that Maude Flanders’ is wearing a Bucs’ “27” jersey and it was Neil Rackers’ white Texans “4” jersey that was on Crusty the Clown.
