On Sunday, the Houston Texans suffered their ninth consecutive loss to fall to 2-9 on the year. What’s more, they lost to the lowly Jacksonville Jaugars, 13-6.
The Jags now share the same record as a team that opened the year as Super Bowl contenders, but those dreams were all before Vanilla Ice rolled into H-Town.
Robert Van Winkle played for halftime of the Texans’ Week 2 win over Tennessee. That was the last time Houston enjoyed sweet victory. On the Thursday before losing to Jacksonville, Ben Tate was hoping that perhaps Vanilla Ice would help his team return to their winning ways.
Ben Tate “Bring back Vanilla Ice.” Texans haven’t won since he performed at halftime of Tenn game.

Unfortunately, that did not happen. When it was all said and done, Tate called the loss to the lowly Jaguars “embarrassing.”
Ben Tate called the loss to Jags “embarrassing.” Duane Brown apologized to the city of Houston. Antonio Smith called it “stressful.”

Maybe it’s time Ice takes a break from the Amish lifestyle and makes his way back down to Reliant Stadium for a game.
