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 on...no 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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
