    I dont think it would happen, but did you guys hear jimmy johnson at half time? He was wondering what the Texans were doing? Put your bench in and secure your number one draft pick "reggie bush"

    guys know paychecks are on the line and game film has their every move.. I don't(hope) a team would tank a season just to get the #1 pick.. besides no guarantee a pick pans out on the NFL level.

    We don't need to throw a game. It just comes naturally.

    JJ has a job next season with any number of teams .... IF he wants it , If not he can continue to draw a paycheck doing what he's doing .... criticizing other coaches and the players around them .

    Capers on the other hand DOES NOT have a job next season .... Playing to win is the ONLY way he can salvage his career no matter how it affects the Texans as he WONT be their coach next year .

    Nick Saban came into a win win situation in Miami . His win loss record doesnt matter this season and probably next as well .... He can afford to say and do the things he's doing ... "I dont care what our record is .... I dont care what trhe score is ... We are building a team for the future ."
    The NFL may be upset about it but he has the right idea for his team and ... I'd be willing to wager he has the backing of his owners on his stance .
