This is pure speculation on many levels but figured it might be a fun break from the norm. So where do the future X-Texans end up in the 2014 season? Get out your magic 8 ball, crystal ball or tarot cards. Matt Schaub -Reason he'll be an X: Even with the huge dead money hit, his release will save cap money that could be used to sign a few decent players. -Where he'll end up: I started out with the hardest one. I think a team like the Raiders could take him for veteran leadership but most likely only as a backup or in a QB competition. Ben Tate -Reason he'll be an X: UFA. I don't think the team releases Foster, Tate will cost too much & Dennis Johnson has show some promise. -Where he'll end up: Whoever pays the most. My guess is the rumored Cleveland. Antonio Smith -Reason he'll be an X: UFA -Where he'll end up: Returning to the Texans is possible but I think he'll get a large offer from someone like the Jets. Joe Marciano -Reason he'll be an X: Failure to adjust blocking schemes after the wedge rules has led to terrible special teams play. Kick off returners don't know when to take a knee. -Where he'll end up: Retired or in a college program if not. Wade Phillips -Reason he'll be an X: He's a good, not great DC that's been exposed against the top teams. His system is rigid and he's either too stubborn or incapable of changing it. -Where he'll end up: Retired Gary Kubiak -Reason he'll be an X: It's time. Patience runs out eventually. He's never done anything to seem like he can't be replaced by equal or better coaching. -Where he'll end up: OC at either the Titans or Jags. I think he might take 2014 off first though. Rick Smith -Reason he'll be an X: His drafts have been average at best. His player retention has been terrible. -Where he'll end up: He'll be the GM of the...Houston Texans.
