Texans owner Bob McNair spoke to the media after Wednesday's practice and said he's disappointed in the team's performance this season, calling his team "underperforming."

The Texans have lost four in a row and have a 4-6 record, good for last place in the AFC South. They have lost on last-minute touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.

"None of us are happy with the performance of our team. They're underperforming. Our coaches know that, they say that. Our players know that, they say that," McNair said.

Head coach Gary Kubiak has been in Houston for five seasons now, and McNair was asked about Kubiak's future with the Texans. "I always do what I think is in the best interest of this team, and that's what motivates me," he said. "It's in our best interest right now to get ready and play Tennessee and win this game, and that's what I expect to do."

The way we see it

McNair's response to the question about Kubiak's future in Houston isn't an especially good sign for a head coach who has a 35-39 record in his five seasons. The Texans were a sexy pick earlier in the season to win AFC South and their offense has played well, but their defense ranks 31st in the NFL.
