The Texans have an underrated fanbase. They are knowledgeable, passionate, and generally as supportive as any fans considering the franchise’s lack of success. (I’d rank them below Green Bay for blind positivity.)
The disastrous 2010 Texans season, though, has tested their faith. A few fans have decided to organize a “Fire Gary Kubiak Rally” before Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
Kubiak has handled the news with his usual grace and even this gesture was made with some respect.
“I want to stress that I don’t want people to come out to bash Kubiak,” said organize Brad White, via a fan blog on the Houston Chronicle. “We don’t want vulgar signs out there. We’re not there to bash him. We’re there to say that we want a change.”
UPDATE: The organizer of the rally and website that goes with it is having second thoughts after receiving “unrelenting email and threats.”
