The Houston Texans have been very disappointing this season. How disappointing? They just lost their second game of the season to the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that many people thought could go down as one of the worst NFL teams ever. So…yeah. It's been a bad year for the Texans.
It just got a little bit worse, too, as the Texans just fired their head coach Gary Kubiak. Quietly, Kubiak has been something of an institution down in Houston as he has been with the Texans since 2006. But the team is on an 11-game losing streak right now. So Texans ownership decided that enough was enough today and canned Kubiak.
"This has been a very disappointing year for the Texans organization," Texans owner Bob McNair said a little while ago. "We started out with such high hopes, and we felt like it was the best roster we've ever started the year with. We really, really anticipated a very favorable outcome, and to have this string of losses is just totally unacceptable."
Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as the team's interim head coach. But the end of December just can't come soon enough for the Texans.
