    Let Andre shut it down.
    Play the other RBs MORE. Maybe even shut down Foster.
    Find out if Leinart can play.
    Learn something the rest of the year. Don't be a DA and worry about the last few games. Play for the future. PLAN FOR NEXT SEASON.

    Mario and Andre should be shut down. But, Kubiak is fighting for his job, so they will continue to play. Either that or McNair will tell him he is safe so he can shut them down and results won't matter.

    Andre is still on pace to be the only reciever to reach 1500 yards 3 consecutive seasons. I think johnson should keep playing to beat that record.

    Texans should lose all their remaining games and try to get as high a draft pick as they can. fire kubik hairs. and give all football operations to cowher.

    Andre and Mario are hurt. If they keep playing they will only make it worse. Is the record worth it if we shorten AJ's career in the process? I'm going to go with no.

    Andre and Mario are too valuable to let them risk furthering their injuries. Give them a rest. OD as well. As for Leinart playing...ehhhh....no thanks. I don't wish to be reminded of Carr era Texans.

    Well, Jon Gruden seems to like us. Is he setting himself up for a HC position?

    Agh, I need to stop dreaming. No, but really. He never discounted the Texans and liked our potential. For real.

    Well at least we still have the Titans game. Andre Johnson vs Cortland Finnegan Part II should be kinda entertaining.

    i agree about shutting down mario- hes starting to really struggle anyway. let jamison and anderson play more. everything else caqn stay the same really. play kareem, OD etc through their growing pains/rustinesss

    play AJ as long as hes ok with the shots- he deserves the record

    He did say some good things, Cowher said some things about the talent on this team after the Jets game.

    I don't think the Texans will rest players though, as long as they are mathematically in it they will keep at it, plus Kubes is used to this sort of thing having the team play now meaningless games.

    Kubiak on the rest of the season:

    Who's "us"? The Kubiak family? This is garbage time in the NFL. Any Texans fan should recognize garbage time. It's when David Carr gets meaningless stats and Gary Kubiak picks up meaningless wins.

    True, LOL

    If Texans fans cant recognize meaningless wins by now they never will.

    US must be the Texans PR staff.

    Absolutely correct. Would you prefer that they just give it up for the rest of the season? What else is he supposed to say?

    This is why if the NFL will not add playoff teams or additional games to the season, teams that are eliminated from the playoff picture should be sent home early and the teams they where going to play get rescheduled to play another vacant team.

    And if there is no vacant team then oh well that team gets an extra bi.

    They should never give up.

    Kubes said what was expected. He's currently in a no win situation. Of course most of it was of his own doing.

    "Meaningful"? How are the remaining games "meaningful"?

    Say you want to finish strong. Say the team won't quit. But saying that these games have meaning to anyone but himself is a crock. The Texans have lost 6 of the last 7 "meaningful" games. I know it's garbage time. Kubiak knows it's garbage time. So what I don't need is additional garbage spewing from his mouth.
