It was a weak schedule to be sure, but on the other hand winning those back-to-back games and the division and playoff berth vs ATL and Cinci with the 5th round rookie at the helm was no small feat. And in spite of the overall schedule, I think the Texans did have a winning record vs 2012 playoff teams they played this year to this point in time ?
I'd amend the existing contract, adding a single year, and then he'd be under contract thru the 2013 season.
Agreed that this is the way it will go. If McNair extended Kubiak after a 9-7 season that didn't get us into the playoffs, I can't imagine there's any way in the world he's not going to get at least two years again this time around.
