    This is going to tick some people off but, as per the title, I'm hoping for a lopsided win by the Broncos. Here is why:

    - this season is a huge failure, whether we win or lose the last two games.

    - Bob McNair needs to be embarrassed into firing Kubiak. Nothing short of two more decisive losses to cap off a 5-11 season will do it. We're talking about startin 4-2, and then closing with a 1-9 record. Hell, I'm not 100% sure that two more horrific losses will do the trick, but it's important that this happen. Critical.

    - Losing the last two games will enhance our draft pick status, which is damn important since we need all the help we can get.

    - I want AJ to sit. He is too damn valuable and has given as much or more than anyone else on the team. I also want him to sit to help us lose this game.

    - For those of you that want us to win the game, you better be huge kubiak supporters.

    - For those of you that are thinking it's worth winning two meaningless games, just consider that dropping a few draft spots could cost us a prized prospect.

    - Just four years ago, Jeff Van Gundy insisted that the Rockets win a meaningless season finale, which cost the Rockets the ability to draft Brandon Roy. Granted, his knees are now shot, but that's beside the point.

    - I'm not saying that a team should openly tank.

    - I'm saying that as a fan, you should want to lose every game after you're eliminated from the playoffs, unless you're wanting to protect the coaching staff.

    It seems to me that this topic is a dead horse. If you want to root for the team to lose, that's your prerogative - but I doubt you're going to convince anyone to root against their team for the sake of drafting high (its not like good draft positions have been of much use to use in the past). Besides, considering McNair's attitude, I doubt 5-11 will make much of a difference from 7-9. If he's going to dump Kubiak, he will do so.

    Agree completely. However, I'm not sure I can watch the game and not root for the Texans so I may just watch highlights and read the summaries/box score.

    While I get what you are saying.

    It's not in my DNA to wish for the Texans to lose.

    I think Kubes is gone no matter what now. I'm not hoping we lose but at the same time it would be nice getting a solid draft pick.


    I am pretty indifferent of the outcome this weekend.

    Call me what you want... But I want the Texans to win every game it plays! I don't ever want to be associated with a team that openly losses on purpose.

    I agree. But your post reminded me of a game in 2005 against the 49ers. Too bad Kris Brown isn't here to shank (wink wink) a chip shot field goal. At least we knew then we were playing in the Reggie Bush Bowl (and we took Mario hahahaha). Is this the Bill Cowher Bowl?

    I was gonna consider this thread blasphemy, but I can't disagree
    with a damn bit of it.

    Here's to Kubiak's (post)-Christmas looking like this:

    If the team doesn't show up in Denver, all the owners will be patting McNair on the back for not overtraining his team over the holidays.

    i dont want to lose but im indifferent about the game. i think kubiaks staying on regardless. the broncos wont blow us out btw. i also think a good draft pick would help and to continue the basketball analogies we're kinda like that 40 win team stuck in purgatory cos we havent been quite good enough to make the playoffs or bad enough to draft the elite talent it takes to get there.

    obviously basketball drafts have far less overall talent in them but i d ont see that much harm in a team tanking a lost season. hell the jags did it last yr and now they playing hard for the division this year

    Losing the game to get a higher draft pick is not going to work out very well if Kubiak is still here.

    While I believe that Kubiak needs to go - and go now, I cannot root for my team to loose to anyone.

    Go Texans!!!

    If you want the Texans to lose tomorrow, then you must be a Broncos fan. End of story.

    This.

    Perhaps they can just leave Kubiak in Denver afterwards.
