With the home destruction of the Texans by the Ravens last Sunday, and only three wins to their name this year, head coach Gary Kubiak has been catching some heat in the Houston media. The players don't want to hear it and can't be any stronger in their support of Kubiak.
The top sports headlines of the day
Texans defensive coordinator, Richard Smith isn't getting similar support. Texans DB Dunta Robinson couldn't say enough positive things about Kubiak but when asked about the heat that Smith was getting he shrugged his shoulders and responded:
It is what it is. As players, we're going to go back and we're going to go out and work hard and practice hard and get the job done.
The Texans are usually very good about keeping their dirty laundry in-house, but when Robinson isn't supporting you publicly, that's usually the beginning of the end for a coach. Though he did also say that the players aren't going to be throwing the coaches under the bus.
