ith the return of Coach Gary Kubiak to the sidelines as extra motivation, the (2-10) Houston Texans played their Super Bowl game Sunday. Going in they had lost 9 straight, including the 1st Draft Pick Bowl last week at home against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. They were about as low a a team can be and now were facing the powerful (9-3) New England Patriots. This was their chance to show the home fans at Reliant Stadium and the NFL world that they were better than their record (Bill Parcells "You are what your record says you arei" be damned)...it was their Super Bowl.
