That's what you get for not running Tate more during fantasy football playoffs.

Seems to me like they are simply too good a team to keep loosing like they are. Expectations were so high this year and they have played so bad, its hard to see Kubiak not getting fired. I am a bit surprised they did it before seasons end but that is what local media and fan pressure can do a owner...

I told my co-worker that the Texans should fire Kubiak and leave him in Jacksonville after that disaster last night. Guess they heard me.

A 2-11 record with the talent they have is simply unacceptable any way you slice it. Put an embarrassing national TV loss on top of that and the Texans owner had no choice.

Getting swept by Jacksonville is career-ending.

Kinda grinchy of Bob McNair if you ask me. The team was already headed nowhere. They could've waited until the end of the season. It's not like Wade Phillips is gonna turn the team around.

At this point you might as well try and lose. So why fire the coach that does it pretty well.

Can't worry about feelings. Kubiak has had plenty of rope.

I'm telling you... Schaub/Keenum, how that was handled - big deal in this... trust me.

Rumors are flying already about replacements! You really could see this one coming but I never understand why before the end of the season.
