Kubiak is a Real Texan
by Keith Weiland
HoustonProFootball.com

Let me state this emphatically: I have never been more encouraged by anything the Texans have done in their brief history than by what they did late last week, making North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams their number one pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. While owner Bob McNair required his blessing before the selection was made final, Williams is clearly the decision of head coach Gary Kubiak.

Thatís an onerous task for a rookie head coach, especially when millions of others, including myself, think they can make the right decision themselves. Kubiak has yet to earn a single tick mark on either side of his won-loss ledger as an NFL head coach, but he is already proving what it truly means to be a Texan.

And what does it mean to be a Texan? Is it the clothes we wear? The food we eat? The way we mangle the English language? No, it ainít any of those things.

Itís not an easy thing to define, our Texan-ness, but I like the words McNair used when he first introduced the name of his expansion team: courage, pride, independence, tradition and strength. Those words are a big part of what makes us Texan, and they are certainly the words I think of now when I reflect on Kubiakís first draft as a head coach.

I agree with the pick, but Kubiak has been living in Denver for awhile now.
