The good thing about being a quarterback in Houston is that there is virtually nothing you can do that will be bad enough to equal the worst collapse your fans have ever seen. That would have been in the 1993 playoffs, when the Bills came back from 32 points down in the second half to beat the Houston Oilers in overtime, 41-38. By comparison, Sunday's collapse to the Colts was nothing at all; just the mere loss of a 17-point lead in the final five minutes. Although the game did feature Sage Rosenfel's spectacular Helicopter Fail (video following the jump). You don't see something like that every day. Rosenfels turned it over three times as the Colts somehow won, 31-27. How bad are things for the Texans right now? Their fans are actually switching over to soccer.
