    Mr. McNair should sit Kubiak, Wade and the entire Texans team down and make them watch the film of tonight’s MNF game, in which Peyton Manning and all 3 phases of the Broncos, offense, defense and special teams came back from 0-24 to even the score in the 3rd quarter, then BEAT the Chargers 35-24 in San Diego !

    That’s what winners do, rising to the challenge and overcoming adversity, no matter the odds, and not crumbling into a heap of disgrace like the Texans did against the Packers Sunday night on national TV!

    Signed – A very embarrassed Texans fan
