An interesting stat that none other than Jerry Jones brought up....is that there has NEVER been a coach that took two teams to the SB.

As a Texans fan.....do you really want to take your chances vs. the odds? Haven't we seen enough about how that's bound to play out?

Do you still want Cowher? Gruden? Johnson? (greatly assuming ANY of them would be interested).

If you're McNair (or Kubiak.... assuming he's around after next week.), do you choose to blow up one of the leading offenses in the league and start from scratch, on both sides.....or do you acknowledge that no matter how good of an offense you have, they can't be expected to score 30+ points a game in order to have a chance to win?

I'm merely presenting this for rational discusion......personally, I think that the offense is capable of anything that should be reasonably necessary of a playoff-caliber team.

Our defense blows......but I'm hesitant to give up the offense to correct this. I hope Kubes and RS get this......if not, well, they need to ga ASAP.

I don't want to start from scratch again.......despite an enormous amount of negative things that have gone down, it could be worse.

Consult the facts/history.....and be careful what you wish for.

1) Yes, I'm willing to take a chance on another coach - even one that has already won a Super Bowl.

2) Why do people assume that our offense has to be totally blown up? We still have some good pieces on offense, including guys named Andre Johnson, Arian Foster and Matt Schaub. These guys still have gas left in the tank. Arian's career is just taking off.

Sorry, but if the Atlanta Falcons can grind out TWELVE WINS just a couple of years after being a terrible team and hiring a new coach, we can work towards the same thing with a new staff.

So ur saying that because no coach has won a super bowl with 2 diff teams then that makes hiring a gruden or cow her somehow "against the odds"? I wonder how many SB winning head coaches have switched teams after their win? Can't be more than 10. So ur implying that If we play the odds that at least 1 in 10 head coaches in the NFL win a super bowl thus making it risky for us to hire a SB winner? Your argument is terribly flawed as is Jerral Jones'

Yeah, I looked it up....You are 100% correct. It WAS JJ that said it.....my bad for taking that with any grain of salt. Glad he's not our owner.

Are you saying a third is not more unlikely? LOL......

No biggie. Getting a new HC with experience that can get us into the playoffs will suit me just fine. I do want a Super Bowl win, that's for sure. Just because no one has done it yet with two different teams doesn't mean that no one ever will.

So you don't want to change Kubiak because of the offense and how good it is?(different topic for a different thread but I digress) Sorry, imo, that is not a good enough reason to keep Kubiak around for a 6th year. Yes, perhaps there would be a dropoff from an offensive standpoint if a new guy came in. How much? I'm not sure. Maybe there isnt one. We just dont know but again, that is not a good enough reason imo to keep Kubiak around for another year.

And this "I don't want to start from scratch again", I have a hard time understanding that when people say that. Start from scratch? Why do we have to start from scratch? Other teams have changed coaches and had success for the most part within the first 3 years. Why do we have to press the reset button? This doesnt need to be blown up, not to me anyways.

In other words I am supremely confident that the odds against a previous super bowl winning coach winning another with a different team are not lower than the odds of any other potential head coach winning a SB. There just haven't been enough of them. If cow her came here and won a SB then the first groups odds would in increase from 0% to well over 10%. Then find out the total coaches in NFL history and divide by the # that have won it all. Guarantee you that # is minuscule.

Din't mean to dog your premise or belittle someones arguement. Sure superbowl is the goal, yes that would be great. But, as it stands right now, most of our team haven't even been to the playoffs. When is the last time the oilers made it to the playoffs? This town hasen't seen their football team in the playoffs for too long of a time.
To win the Superbowl you have to make it to the playoffs. So while its been years and still have not made it there, just seems a little silly to be talking about the superbowl, when we can't even look respectable on a monday night game. (to flustered, shakey in the spotlight)
Like I said before, i'll take any coach that can get us to the playoffs consistanly, and gets our team that veteran status they need to be successful enough to win a Superbowl.

I agree with that....I don't think it should be "prohibitive" at all......just wanted to point out the facts to the "win a SB now/hire ______ because he's won a SB" crowd.

In reality.....we are in between. We don't have a 1-2 year "fire starter" that rolls things over in an instant. We don't have a former SB coach that "fails" every other place he goes. We don't have any number of previously "successful" coaches that have also failed in other situations.

My point is this.......and you can spin it however you like. Coaches can/may be ultra-successful in some situations, and they can be equally disastrous in others. It can happen to the same guy.......it comes down to the situation that he has to deal with. Sometimes that can be his fault....sometimes, it's just a plain mismatch. In this case...I'd personally rather see the defensive and special teams coaches fired and start from scratch there, vs. needlessly dismantling our offense.

The offense has (at least, numerically) increased statistically each year. I'd demand a clearing out of the defensive and special teams staff with a demand to hire (as good as may be available.....there's rarely a desirable reason for a coach to be "available, right?)proven coaches in the other areas. I'd stipulate that this should not be Kubes buddies, etc. Hire your "new/forced" staff of choice, and make the playoffs or bye bye.

Yeah, yeah......I understand that an ENORMOUS amount of people will say, "just fire them all now", etc. I'm not gonna claim that Kubes is a genius or anything just yet......but we've got a really good offense.

Hey man......regardless of whether you like it or not, we've got one of the best offenses in the NFL.

That's a FACT....and not my opinion.

Our offense shouldn't be required to score 30+ points a game in order to win.

As a result of demostrable "facts", I'll go out on a limb and say that that the defensive and special teams coaches have got to go, and their replacements better make the playoffs next year or the entire house should be cleared.

Arbitrarily giving up one of the best offenses in the entire NFL because our defense ans ST suck is retarded.

I guess if you are a businessman and you've got an amazing product (offense), and have terrible marketing, you'd fire the ENTIRE staff vs. what is tangibly really making your success difficult?

That's just not intelligent....yeah, I get the arguments of "this coach succeeded in this amount of time, etc.". That has a great deal to do with circumstance, and you've got no guarantees that things will improve with someone else. Most anyone else you can hire has been fired from another job. I'll say it again,, it's about the circumstance. We could get a new coach.......great. Will the defense be better? How could it NOT be.......would the offense be more productive? highly unlikely,

Like I said before.....would you prefer to lose a game 24-23 0r 12-6?

This is one of the most useless stats I have ever heard. Never has a guy taken two teams to SB wins, so we don't want to hire someone that has already won one? As if the fact that he has won one is somehow going to be a detriment to us winning one.

No, it's not. We've got a statisticaly great offense that can't produce consistently. Being able to run up and down the field when you're very far behind doesn't mean you have a great offense. Being able to only play half a game of football at a time means you have a problem on offense. Thinking otherwise due to a collection of gaudy statistics is absurd.

That our team can fall behind like they do and then come back to tie or seize the lead just tells me that they have enough talent to be a great offense, not that they are a great offense.

Great offenses finish comebacks. Great offenses don't need to do it every single week though. Don't let our glaring problems on defense get in the way of seeing that we also have issues on offense. We have great tools to work with in fixing those issues on that side of the ball but the issues are there.

Four head coaches have already been fired for not producing success, and most likely there will be more after the season ends. If the Texans decide to continue with the pathetic mentality of running a franchise out of fear, they are going against the grain of most NFL teams that desire wins over mediocre stability.

I'm tired of rooting for a losing franchise. That is the face of this team right now: LOSERS.

Yes we do and in the decades since nobody has managed to find "The Chosen One" again. Tom Landry is the coaching Holy Grail and if Bob McNair is waiting for that to happen it's going to be a long, painful marathon of an experience following this team.

To this point in time, that's fact and I may be on the warning tract deep in left but I think Jim Harbaugh is going to be the next great HC coming out of the college ranks. I know he's turned the oppertunity down before and I'm also aware of the fact that no one here wants a first time guy.

I'd take him in a minute.

Just remember: no coach whose last name starts with the letter K has ever won the super bowl.
Kubiak must change his name or he doesn’t have a shot.

NO NFL head coach has ever won a Super Bowl with one team, and then gone on to win one with another team. Never ever in the history of the league. Not Lombardi, not Parcells, not Holmgren, not Seifert, not Reeves, not Jimmy Johnson.

All you Gruden and Cowher lovers remember that. Also remember that Gruden and Cowher each only got their teams to ONE Super Bowl.

Lots of Super Bowl coaches have taken other teams to the playoffs. Why is this little fact always ignored when people bring up this about Super Bowl coaches?

How about we get to the playoffs ONCE before worrying about our head coach winning a Super Bowl, 'eh?

"Tom Landry didn't put together a winning season until his seventh year as head coach of the Cowboys.

And we know the rest of that story."

How wonderfully absent of all the facts. Tom Landry didn't have to deal with free agency and a salary cap, either. It was a different era in football, one where a team could stockpile talent.

And let's be real here: Tom Landry was a football genius, even as a player who ended up coaching while he was playing.

Are you really trying connect a HoF LEGEND to Gary Kubiak? Even Gary facepalms that silliness. :kubepalm:

Kubiak is a coach who won the Super Bowl, as an OC, whose last name begins with K. The solution is right in front of us.

So you're saying that Kubiak needs to hire an OC whose name begins with K and then that would..... mean.......


HE'S NOT A WITCH!
