Houston (CBS Houston)– Let the trade rumors begin.

The Houston Texans are six games into the highly anticipated 2013 season and the once supposed Super Bowl contenders are now dealing with a four-game skid.

As the Texans get prepared for the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it’s difficult to get past the fact that they have 12 more turnovers than their opponents, the second most in the NFL.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak wouldn’t publicly commit Monday afternoon to any of his three quarterbacks as the status of quarterback Matt Schaub is still unclear.

So here’s the first theory.  Drexel Perry, a Yahoo Contributor, posed a solution for the Texans; have the Washington Redskins trade backup quarterback Kirk Cousins to Houston before the trade deadline.

Perry wrote, “Despite some playoff experience, backup T.J. Yates probably isn’t the Texans answer at quarterback. Undrafted free agent and local favorite Case Keenum has promise, but there’s no guarantee he’s going to be the solution to the Texans’ needs at signal caller either.”

And he’s right.  As stated earlier, Coach Kubiak even struggled with giving a definite answer on who should start in Schaub’s absence and wouldn’t even answer if Schaub would be the starter if he’s cleared of injury.

The Texans are a talented team and time isn’t on the player’s side. So what do you do?

Oh, and by the way, the Texans are facing a Kansas City defense that is allowing the NFL’s fewest points and a defense that leads the NFL in sacks this season.

Something needs to be done.
