Sunday Night Football Live: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

Come join us and watch a kinda-sorta-almost-but-not-really Texans family reunion on Sunday night.

In a parallel version of our world, somewhere at the end of the universe (where I hear they have a pretty good restaurant), let’s call it Schmearth, this is what our Houston Texans might have looked like this year.

Gary Kubiak is roaming the sidelines, calling questionable plays and botching time management, whispering into Derek Carr’s ear what he wants done on the field. Wade Phillips is going over the previous series with J.J. Watt, Jared Crick, Whitney Mercilus, and Khalil Mack.

We’d still have Joe Marciano screwing everything up on special teams, but hey, you can’t have everything.

Sigh. What might have been. But let’s be honest, it could never have been. Kubes was pretty much done in Houston, and it does no good to dwell on the past.

Football is on now, and we should all watch and hope for a Broncos loss, because screw the Broncos.
