The surprise of the trio was the Texans, and there could be major ramifications from their 35-27 loss to the Colts. Coach Gary Kubiak's job could be in jeopardy. While he and general manager Rick Smith have done a nice job building a talented young defense and an exciting passing attack, the three-game losing streak in the AFC South could bring Mike Shanahan to the Texans' sidelines after the season.
Now, I'm thinking of the 2007 Denver game, and going "Wait, the same Mike Shanahan that deactivated his top two defensive tackles to play defensive ends to try and stop Peyton Manning? The guy whose Broncos were pretty routinely destroyed by the Colts? You want him to take over a franchise to get over the hump and make the playoffs, knowing he'd be seeing Peyton Manning twice a year? Are you high?"
