Somehow, I can't think of a better sponsor for a Texans blog than Absolut. Together with Captain Morgan, we are two-thirds of the way to a fair representation of things Texans fans will be chugging before, during, and after the game. Unfortunately, I don't think Clorox will join us this year. We're just not a good representation of any product that actually works.
For the Texans, this game is simple: it doesn't matter. That means that anyone questionable should sit, and it means that anyone who has made their injury worse should also sit. Do the right thing, Kubiak. Give your star wide receiver a cup of eggnog and tell him to enjoy the game. Garrett Graham is also out again, so Andre can amuse himself with some rookie hazing.
For the Broncos, we have a laundry list of questionable players: Brian Dawkins, Knowshon Moreno, Kyle Orton, Darcel McBath, Demaryius Thomas, and David Bruton. No word on who will and who won't be playing, but it's pretty clear that it won't matter if Orton plays since they're going with Tebow anyway.
Remember that while you're chasing your post-Christmas cheer with Battle Red Sadness, ENJOY WITH ABSOLUT RESPONSIBILITY®
