Coming off of back to back playoff appearances the Houston Texans had set there sights on breaking through to the Super Bowl this season. Many sports experts from ESPN to Sports Illustrated picked the Texans to play in Super Bowl XLVIII as well. But now at the half way mark and starting off a disappointing 2-6 it doesn’t even seem like the Texans will make the playoffs.
To make matters worse Head Coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field at the start of halftime in Sunday night’s home game against the Colts and is recovering from a mini-stroke. He’s return is uncertain and the team has named Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips interim Head Coach.
My personal belief before the Indianapolis game was that if the Texans doesn’t make a significant turn around with new QB Case Keenum under center that owner Bob McNair will pull the plug on Kubiak.
Bob McNair has got to be frustrated with Texans ability to finish strong. In 2010 the Texans lost 8 of their final 10 games. In 2012 they gave up home field advantage in the playoffs by losing 3 out of their last 4 games. This year epic 4th quarter collapses against Seattle, Kansas City and Indianapolis may be the last straw.
But if McNair were to end Kubiak’s tenure with the Texans would he look like a bad guy in light of this health issue. He can’t fire a sick man…..can he?
