Things have gone from bad to worse for the Houston Texans in a matter of a few weeks. It all started with a fourth quarter collapse in week four against the Seattle Seahawks and now after another bitter defeat in week six, Texans’ fans are wondering what’s next?
Not only has the Houston ship started to sink, it’s sinking in a big way. Fans are booing injuries and jumping off the bandwagon at a rapid rate. This was a team projected to fight for a conference title and now they’re fighting for a playoff spot. But of all the fighting that’s going on, Gary Kubiak might be scrapping the hardest. His decision at quarterback seems to have been made for him with Matt Schaub going down, but only to an extent. The question has now become – T.J. Yates or Case Keenum?
The winner of that QB battle is unlikely to drastically turnaround Houston’s season, but you never know. Kubiak will have to hope for the best, that whoever is under center will give the team a spark.
I don’t think there’s any doubt about it, Kubiak is coaching for his job at this point. This is his eighth season as the head coach and a collapse year will most certainly get him canned. He needs to pull out all the stops going forward. This team has hit bottom and Kubiak’s coaching seat is getting hotter by the day.
