Time runs out on Texans' Kubiak
By John McMullen, NFL Editor
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The bottom line of the ledger rarely has a column for empathy and Gary Kubiak found that out the hard way on Friday.
The veteran coach was shown the door after the Texans' franchise-record 11th straight loss against equally inept Jacksonville on "Thursday Night Football," a setback which plummeted Houston to 2-11 on the season, a dismal mark coming on the heels of two consecutive AFC South division crowns.
The trip to the unemployment line came just 33 days after Kubiak was stricken with a mini-stroke during halftime of the Texans game against Indianapolis on Nov. 3, and magnifies just how much of a bottom-line business the NFL really is.
