Texans lose to Jaguars, need Vanilla Ice to break curse

Stop, hesitate and listen. (USATSI)
There are any number of explanations for the Texans' nine-game losing streak. The last defeat came courtesy of NFL doormats, the Jacksonville Jaguars, a hapless bunch that came into Houston Sunday to earn just their second win.

(Funny story: the Texans have two wins this season, too.)

Even before the Jaguars game, the Texans were willing to do anything to change their luck. On Thursday, running back Ben Tate suggested this:

Vanilla Ice performed at halftime of the Texans' Week 2 game against the Titans. Houston trailed 10-7 going into the break but were no doubt inspired by Ice's performance and went on to win, 30-24. In the nine games since, it's been some of the worst football you'll ever see and Sunday's loss to Jacksonville was the turd on top of the ice cream sundae.

"We suck," wide receiver Andre Johnson said after the latest defeat (via ESPN.com). "As an offense. That's pretty much it. ... "[The fans] were booing us last week. They booed us before. I said it before, if we're not putting good stuff on the field, we ain't giving them nothing to cheer about. They booed. They should boo. ...

"If you look at our record, yeah, we're the worst team," Johnson concluded.

So, Texans, bring back Robert Van Winkle. Bring him back now. Because, really, it comes down to this: Do you want Ice, Ice Baby or Ice up, Son?
