Yesterday I heard Gary say in an interview omething to the affect of they needed to go back and look at schemes...He didn't say offensively or defensively, but it was the first time I had heard him mention schemes as being a source of the problem...

I'll be listening to see if he expounds on that further...

is it just me or does kubiak just seem sorta soft as a head coach??? I watch his post game reaction year after year, and it's always the same sad face, with the same words coming out of his mouth.

"I blame myself for not having us prepared"

"We have to go back and look at the tape"


He just doesn't seem like a "firey" type of dude.

Wasn't he known to have bad interviewing skills and was bad with the media, prior to becoming our head coach? I remember that being mentioned as one of his flaws, when we were talking about potential HCs back in '05.

I'm not worry about him being a soft HC, he might seem laid back during interviews, but I'm pretty sure when he's out on the field he can be a pretty passionate and firey coach.

You would? His football team got their *** handed to them yesterday, and he has to get asked questions about it. Sure, that's a part of his job, but come on.

Also, do you guys really expect him to call out players? It's quite obvious who did and didn't play well. The game tape doesn't lie. Even the casual fan can tell who had a bad day yesterday without Kubiak having to single them out.

This is a group sport. You live and die as a team.

I guess you are referring to my post, but I didn't say he should call them out, I meant the same thing you did, it's pretty obvious even to the casual fan who blew it and the he's not throwing them under the bus. Which I don't think he should do publicly, btw. Hopefully in the locker room he is tearing them a new one.

Does this remind anybody of the beginning of the 2005 season ?
We'd just come off our best season in '04 (7-9) and thought we might be headed for the playoffs. But instead in the first game of the year we go up to Buffalo and absolutely stink it up and we end the season battling Frisco for the number #1 pick in the 2006 college Draft.
We played so bad in Buffalo, it was embarassing, but I don't think we played any worse than yesterday in Pittsburg. That game in Buffalo seems so long ago in some ways but in other ways, seems just like yesterday.

Kubes is not excused for his rediculous presser and he is on a string that might need to be cut.

We were absolutely embarrassed yesterday and I want to ask Bob exactly what I am paying for.

Because I did not sign up to pay for Kubes Ego while he lets us lose a game without even attempting to win the game.

Lets see: If you were a irrigation contractor and were putting in a sprinkler and you get down to the end of the job only to turn on the water and see your lead guy hooked the system into the gas line would you keep him on the feild or pull some body from the bench up to try to fix the problem!

Matt Carr er I mean David Shaub is exactly the bonehead that mustered all of Three points till we got to the second team.
Did we get to see Kubes trying to win the game; nope, we got to see his EGO

I agree, I wish for us to get someone that brings more to the table than Dayne. BUT... as long as whoever we field is worse than Dayne (Slaton excluded, he's on the 'rookie get out of jail free'-card) I have absolutely no troubles advocating Dayne on our team.

At least Dayne plays hard and mean... perhaps some of the other players could learn this from Dayne ?

It's unfortunate, but our offense has so much trouble running against the 3-4. I thought it was supposed to be a defense that you could exploit through the running game. Maybe it's the mixture of plays that we run. Our offense gets starts to be too predictable when it's derailed. Then it's run, pass, pass everytime.

Once more, another 3-4 team this week, with a more exotic scheme. When we get those standard AFC South 4-3's we should look better.

I hope they just figure it out this week.

I've been seeing a lot of parallels - starting QB doesn't have to earn job (even though he probably would have), doesn't fire a coordinator in the off-season when he should, admits he can't figure out what went wrong when he thought they were prepared, some poor personnel decisions (although everyone has them), can't fix obvious and lingering holes on the team, etc.

He brought in a sense of excitement and leadership, but I'm not sold on the results. This is how I felt before the season started; this isn't a knee jerk reaction to that pathetic display yesterday.

All that said, this crew is much better than the Capers staff. The Texans organization has a culture of mediocrity that they still haven't overcome.
