COACH: GARY KUBIAK
SIXTH SEASON WITH THE TEXANS (37--43)
Flinty, with a brilliant offensive mind, the Houston native is intent on being known as more than just John Elway's old backup and Mike Shanahan's ex-assistant. One way he can do that is by leading his hometown franchise to its first ever playoff appearance. But to get there, he'll have to prove he can build a solid defense too. If he can't, he might be searching for a job at season's end.
