Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak collapses on the field right at halftime during the Texans vs. Colts game during Sunday night’s game.  With the Texans heading into halftime with a 21-3 lead, Kubiak was running to the locker room before and went down suddenly.  Kubiak, who is 52 years old and known to be in great shape was attended by medical professionals. Coaching in the NFL is a tough, demanding ass game.  Just over the weekend Denver Broncos head coach John Fox was rushed to the emergency room where he was having chest discomfort and now scheduled to  undergo an aortic heart valve replacement this week. Oh my goodness Gary Kubiak. — Rich Eisen (@richeisen) November 4, 2013   Kubiak was talking to the doctors. They weren’t doing anything to his knees or feet in case he injured something running off the field. — John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) November 4, 2013   “I think it’s the hardest job; the most demanding job in the culture” #Wilbon 1/28/11 @RealMikeWilbon #NFL #HeadCoach — Mike Wilbon Said (@MikeWilbonSaid) November 4, 2013   Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary Kubiak, his family and the Houston Texans organization from Sports-Kings.

  • The Texans were only as good as their weakest link. Their kicker, Bulllock, gave the game away. Had he made those three field goal attempts (9 points), the Texans would have given Mr. Kubiak a wonderful gift. As a matter of fact, Mr. Kubiak was so shocked that they are ahead at half time, he can't contain himself.

    He hyper-ventillated with the halftime results and can't believe it...He finally realized that the Texans is putting out their brilliance with Case Keenum. It is obvious that they need a better kicker than the one they have now. Bullock will give away close games, and that is not fair for the rest of the players. They need a bankable one ...the likes of Vinatieri and others.

    Go Case Keenum and Mr. Kubiak! May you recover soon from your lightheadedness. Case is your QB, and his awesomeness will give you more amazing performances in the next 8 games to go. So, be strong and be happy. In the meantime, recruit a reliable kicker.....someone that can be counted when the game is on the line. Bullock is not your guy. He lost the Colts game with three ...count THREE missed field goals! The Texans would have had a 33-point total, and that picture would have demoralized the Colts in the fourth quarter.....
