I was thinking the same about Kube's record, but didn't want to bring bad karma or anything.

I guess Gary gets no credit for winning with a 3rd string QB .....

I have no problem with people giving credit to Wade Phillips. The turnaround this defense has done this year is incredible. :wild:

46-46. Kubes was at .500 three times last year before the disastrous 2-8 finish.... He's never been over .500, though...

I think Kubiak's record accurately reflects what kind of HC he's been thus far. His offenses have been very potent and his defenses have sucked. And make no mistake, his defenses have sucked because of Gary Kubiak. He delegated, he hired Richard Smith and Frank Bush, and he signed off on the draft picks.

We have two excellent coordinators for a change. I'm still waiting to see if Kubiak grows into the HC position. There aren't too many mediocre coaches in the NFL that get the opportunity to hang onto a gig this long and grow into the job.

You are too kind. Considering the talent and opportunties he's still just Kubes. I think an average coach could have done more with what he's had to work with.

I think Kubiak should win Coach of the Year. Because I know he'll do the right thing and give the award to Wade.

I agree with you but the east/west coach bias is strong. West Coast Harbaugh will get it this year.

Yeah because Wades defense is on its 3rd QB in three games .... all wins :wadepalm:


They both deserve a lot of credit for this teams performance thus far ....

To me, today's win was a special milestone for Kubiak because we can finally say that The Texans beat a good team BECAUSE of Kubiak's head coaching (yes, I know Wade deserves a lot of credit also).

Reasons why Kubiak's coaching won this game:

-had a rookie 5th round QB fully coached up and ready to play effectively
-had an offensive gameplan for the rookie QB that perfectly balanced security with aggression and unpredictability
-aggressive late 4th down call in the red zone that all but won the game
-team answered falcon's game-tying drive with a killer 10-minute TD drive that featured all the good things kube's offense can do
-texans out-toughed a good, tough team in the 4th quarter (would have been better had it been on the road, but still)
-didn't step on his dick with that late, would-be challenge
-team had only 5 penalties (none of which seemed particularly egregious to my memory), and 1 "turnover"

Perhaps most impressive to me was the Texans second or third drive of the game (the one that ended with the Yates "fumble"). After starting out the game running, Kubiak called 4 or 5 Yates play-action passes in a row, many of which were down the field. To me, it was obvious then that Kubiak was prepared to go out and take this game rather than hope to pull one out with wade's d and the running game (with a few kubiak golden oldies like halfback passes and end-arounds thrown in)

Kubiak had his 3rd string qb ready. He threw the red flag at the right time and held it when he should of held it. His gamble in the forth quarter paid off with a td instead of 3 points, which kept us from going into ot. All things we sometime ***** at Kubiak for doing wrong some weeks he did right this week. This win more than any other since he has been here was his.

Coach Gary Kubiak said the team had NO plans to draft a quarterback, but couldn’t pass on Yates. That was a great decision, today proved that.

Yeah that first challenge was an obvious forward pass ..... the refs called the play an "Interception" ..... how the hell do you intercept a pass that hits the turf ?


That 4th and 1 call with a rookie QB at the helm running the ball down the throat of the leagues second best rush defense was gutsy.

Having Yates NFL game ready ..... was a triumph in itself. Gotta give credit to Kubiak , Dennison and Greg Knapp for a job well done. They devised a gameplan that was just aggressive enough to get the job done while not putting Yates in position to make mistakes.

I believe they called it a fumble because there was no whistle.
And the game stats "credited" Rowdy with a fumble. No INTs are in his stats.

To the DB's credit, he was the only one alert enough to notice that the whistle had not been blown. Even his own teammates had stopped playing. And all of our guys thought the play was over when the ball hit the turf.

Here's my question for the refs:

If his arm wasn't moving forward, why did the ball fly ten yards forward in the direction he wanted to throw it? Don't call it a frickin' fumble just because you're too stupid to blow a whistle.

The part that really bakes your noodle is that one of the refs actually called it incomplete. They huddled up and got it wrong. Collective stupidity in action.

This is why I usually defend Kubiak. Another reason can be seen in this game where he went for it on 4th down.

To call a run play right there, that's telling that OL & RBs (who had worked their asses off to that point), "I need you."

& they answered the bell.

That, I think, is the most uncharacteristic thing about this team that I have seen. Kubiak has asked them to step up again & again over the last two years & this season, they are answering that call time & time again.

Yeah , he's put them in position to win many many times over the prior two seasons and they have failed .... The difference this season is they are getting it done and the W's are piling up as a result.

I know it was a fumble on the stat sheet .... but the ref on the field after the review said "The play stands as called on the field , an interception" .... Calling it an interception overlooks the fact that the ball hit the ground .... That he termed it as such is the only way I can see them not overturning that call as Yates arm was clearly going forward.

They really screwed the pooch on that call. Just glad that it didnt cost the Texans a W.

The funny part about this to me, is not only did Kubiak call a great game, but Smith, who is usually far more conservative (excluding the 4th down in OT vs the Saints) called the trick play with the Flea Flicker and it cost his team

Matt Ryan should have never thrown the ball to begin with. No one was expecting that pass, not even the intended receiver. The only one who saw that was Kareem (or Allen, don't remember which one).

I agree with your sentiment, however, Wade is known for very quick defensive turn arounds. Kubiak screwing around and not hiring good defensive coordinators made hiring Wade a must. We all knew Wade would improve the defense, but we couldn't have predicted by how much. The Texans are the best one year turn around job Wade has ever done. Going from last to first in one year is just crazy.

Kids been doing well all season, but I think he really needed that to boost his confidence. Hopefully he can stop thinking & start playing.
