Here's a piece of the Q & A that I believe answers our questions concerning Marciano.
Q: You gave Kubiak a new three-year contract before this season. What do you like about Kubiak?
A: I think he does a great job. He likes his coordinators and position coaches, and I do, too
. He works hard. He’s organized. The players love playing for him. They have a lot of confidence in him.
That pretty much sums it up for me. The ol' loyal to a fault Kubiak strikes again. The ST's have been an issue for quite some time, but will continue to be ignored until either McNair wises up & steps in, ala Wade, or it becomes the lone factor in costing the Texans some games & potentially Kubiak's job. Until then kubiak will sit on his hands & be the good buddy while accepting mediocrity from one component of his team. After all, that is how championships are won.
