Uncertain future:With a disappointing 6-10 season in the books, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said that he's scheduled to meet with team chairman and CEO Bob McNair on Monday to discuss his future with the team.

"I had a couple talks with him this week," Kubiak said. "The bottom line is I asked him the last time we talked to let me enjoy the week – let me coach this game. We'll sit down tomorrow and decide what's going on. He's been fair to me, and we'll make that decision tomorrow."

Kubiak signed a contract extension through 2012 before the season. He was asked Sunday is he's worried about his job.

"I need some sleep," he said. "Hopefully I'll get eight hours. I haven't got that in a while. Then I'll wake up and talk with him tomorrow and we'll go from there."

Player support:Players voiced support of Kubiak being retained by McNair.

"I would love to play for him for the remainder of my career," Foster said. "I feel like we're right there as a team. I really do. I would vouch for Kub with my last breath. I love playing for him. He's fair. He treats you like a man. He treats you like an NFL player. That's all I can say. I've got the utmost respect for him, even though he's on me all the time."

Said wide receiver Andre Johnson: "I hope he's back next year. I've said that before, and I'll continue to say it. Like I said before, I can't control that."

And quarterback Matt Schaub: "I would without hesitation say to bring him back, that he's the guy to lead this team and be the coach. He fights for us every day as players. We do the same for him. He's got our back, we've got his."

Schaub hits 9,000:Schaub became the fifth player in NFL history with 9,000 passing yards over a two-season span. Needing 113 yards on Sunday to reach the milestone, he finished with 253.

"That's a pass offense thing," Schaub said of the accomplishment. "That's a group thing for me to do that. I've got a tremendous amount of weapons to use at my disposal throwing the ball, and my offensive line, tight ends and backs in protection allowed me that opportunity. That's a team thing."

After leading the league with 4,770 passing yards in 2009, Schaub finished fourth with 4,370 yards in 2010. He was 18-of-22 on Sunday with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Strong finish for Daniels:Tight end Owen Daniels, who will be a free agent in 2011, capped a strong finish to the season with five catches for 62 yards and a touchdown.

Daniels tore his ACL in 2009 and sat out five games this season with a hamstring injury. Finally healthy in the final four games, he had 22 catches for 271 yards and two touchdowns. That'd be good for 88 catches, 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns over a 16-game span.

"Over the course of the past four weeks, he's shown he's fine, he's back and he'll be a Pro Bowl player," Kubiak said. "We need him on this football team. He is a hell of a player, he's a great kid, and we kind of go as he goes. I hope he's here for a long, long time."

Daniels said that he wants to return to the Texans next season.

"I have always said that I wanted to be here and play with these guys," he said. "I think our offense is awesome. I would like to remain a part of it."

Rackers' records:In his first season with the Texans, kicker Neil Rackers tied the team record with 124 points. Kris Brown also had 124 points in 2008.

Rackers set the franchise record by making 90 percent of his field goals (27-of-30). The previous record was 87.9 percent, set by Brown in 2008.

With field goals of 26 and 33 yards in the season finale, Rackers has now made 53 consecutive field goals from 45 yards or less.
