I know what's wrong with the Texans: The Curse of Frank Reich lives

Remember this guy??

How could anyone forget, right?

 

For those who may not know (can't see how you can be a Houston sports fan and NOT know, but whatever), Frank Reich is the back up QB that tore our hearts out....well, before Gary Kubiak.

January 3, 1993, Reich would erase a 35-3 lead in the second half to lead the Buffalo Bills in a 41-38 overtime victory against our Houston Oilers, in the game forever to be known as "The Comeback."  The game that most Houstonians believe cursed the City of Houston from ever seeing an NFL team succeed again.

The very same Frank Reich has been an offensive assistant and QB coach for the Indianapolis Colts since 2008.  I firmly believe it is his presence in the AFC South that is contributing to the recent epic failures of our Houston Texans.  Sure, we've been unbelievably bad in the past, but somehow we've recently managed to take failure to an entirely new level. Since 2008 we've had to bear witness to "Rosencopter", "The HB Pass", "Q-Tip", and now "The Dirty Sanchez.", as some infuriated fans referred to Sunday's loss to the NY Jets.   Coincidence?  I think not.

Scramble the bombers and dispatch the commando teams, Frank Reich is the key and he must be eliminated.
