2013 TransGriot NFL Predictions Week 15

KubiakAs far as my fave NFL squad goes, the only thing they are in the running for is the number one draft pick and after this Jacksonville loss, Gary Kubiak probably better be updating his resume
--TransGriot November 27, 2013

Told y'all Gary Kubiak better update his resume in the wake of the first loss to Jacksonville.  The 20-13 one, which was the Texans 11th consecutive one, got Kubes canned from his dream job.

The pleyers getting canned will be determined later

Texans owner Bob McNair said as much in the Monday press conference when he admitted he made the decision on the team plane ride home.  As pissed off as many Texans fans are about this season, railed about his too conservative play calling or the predictability of his offense, there's no debate that Gary Kubiak is a class guy and represented our team and the city with class. .

Kubiak had a full page ad placed in the Sunday Houston Chronicle thanking Texans fans in the wake of his termination by owner Bob McNair.   While Wade Phillips again takes the reins as the interim coach, who will be named the thrid coach of this franchise and who is in the running for the job is only known to bob McNair. 

Rumors are here that former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith (one of my faves because he is a native Texan), Stanford coach David Shaw and San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt are on the top of the list. 

There's also the rumor that current Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is also being looked at by the Texans.   If they hired him, would be sweet karmic payback to the Aggies for stealing Sumlin from UH when we were undefeated before the C-USA title game vs. Southern Mississippi when we had chance to be a BCS buster.

Speaking of busted, Week 14 was not a good one for me with another sub.500 7-9 mark, but was very good to Mr. Blake, who took top honors with a 12-4 mark.   Mr.Watts was 10-6.

Okay, that one's over...let's get to Week 15.   My picks as usual in underlined bold print, here are Eli's and Mike's.
