The Story Behind #kubiakbelievesinyou

If you hadn't noticed, #kubiakbelievesinyou is now a trending Twitter topic in Houston. It's being used derisively to make fun of things that either shouldn't be believed in, are extinct, or are terrible. It was first coined by Twitter user (and reader) TXCleaver, whose actual name I don't know, as much as I'd like to give him that credit. 

The story behind the story is that at yesterday's Texans press conference, coach Gary Kubiak was asked how he could justify keeping Frank Bush on staff. Frank Bush coordinates the defense, which, if you haven't been paying attention, is on pace to be one of the very worst units in NFL history by any objective measure despite having players like Mario Williams, Antonio Smith, and Brian Cushing on it. Kubiak's response?

Because I believe in him. I think we played much better defense yesterday. I think if we finished the game yesterday, we'd be talking about how much better we were. There were a lot of good things that went on. I believe in the guy. That's why he's here with me.

And now you random Twitterers who jumped on the trend know...the other side of the story.
