Thank You, Texans: Five Reasons Why 2011 Sucks Already

We don't think it's being unreasonable to declare that 2011 is a disaster. An unmitigated disaster, for that matter.

Why? Let us count the ways.

5. Gary Kubiak is still going to coach the Texans Even presidents only get four years. Especially when they have a record like Kubiak's. 4. Wade Phillips?!?! Just the man to bring discipline to the Texans' D. Because if there was anything that defined the Dallas Cowboys under his tenure, it was discipline.

3. Rick Smith is remaining the Texans' GM This decision is based empirical evidence of which we are aware. Unless "at least his players didn't go 2-14" is empirical evidence.

2. Bob McNair remains owner of the Texans Is the energy business a whole lot easier than people think? Or is the NFL that much harder?

1. You know things are bad when you begin rooting for a lockout But that might be the best solution. Are you ready for some football?? No, thanks.
