The Houston Chronicle says Kubiak deserves some credit for winning in a season wrecked with injuries. They just neglected to mention the most important injury–Peyton Manning. Had the Colts won the AFC South again would Kubiak have a job?
Kubiak’s laid-back style and demeanor — criticized by many media and fans — has proved to be effective in a year in which best-laid plans have been shattered by major injuries. Thanks in part to that calm manner, what could have been a tumultuous year for the Texans has instead been the franchise’s best season to date.
In all sincerity, the Texans should be thrilled to get their first playoff victory. Texans fans can address their thank you cards to Mr. Manning now.
