Do you believe in this statement - Everything happens for a reason? I do, now for a list of my hypothetical situations. Say some of the positive effects of Kubiak coming here are... 1. getting Matt Schaub here 2. getting Rick Smith here 3. coaching up Matt Schaub at QB (he is good with QB's) 4. helped to turn around the losing attitude in our players Now say Kubiak gets fired and we get Bill Cowher (I wouldn't be to dissapointed about this) 1. you get a great head coach 2. he hopefully keeps a good QB in Schaub 3. he hopefully keeps a good GM in Rick Smith 4. he turns the attitude in this team around even more and makes them hard-nosed tough players like the old house of pain days 5. he brings in great assistants 6. they coach up Mario to be everything we dreamed he could be 7. we become a playoff team consistently 8. we win at least one superbowl I know - some big if's. But my point is some great things that might happen in our Houston Texans future might not have been possible if not for the things that have happened in our past. One example , if we didn't lose as much as we did we wouldn't have had high draft picks and gotten our future stars. I don't know if Kubiak will get canned (I think it's possible that he could turn things around and become a good head coach) and even if it does happen I don't know that we would get a coach like Cowher. What I am sure of though is that when things turn around I'll be there, and I'll be even more satisfied when we win that superbowl and I look back on our rough history that I sat through every minute of not giving up on my team. I'm glad it hasn't come easy and I'm glad it won't come easy - just look at the Red Sox. Those fans had to wait 86 years for another championship and now they have 2 in the last 4 years. Can you imagine how satisfying that must of been for the old man who had been a faithful fan his whole life and got to finally see his team hoisting that champoinship trophy? That's what I'm talking about. It may not happen for us for many years to come but at least when and if it ever does I'll be there, and I'll have one huge freaking smile on my face. I might even shed some tears like I did as a young kid when I suffered through all those heartbreaking Houston Oilers loses, like the Buffalo comeback, but you know what all this pain we feel now and have felt will make the victory that much sweeter!
