It begs the question if going forward, as the NFL distinctly has transformed more and more into a "passing league," if this will leave us in the dust as a modern day dinosaur.
Very interesting, and provides a factual basis for the criticism of many fans that Gary is much too conservative in his play-calling.

I do not think you give Mr. McNair much credit. Dude did not become a billionaire by being stupid.
You don't think the fact that the Texans defense was one of the worst in the NFL history had much to do with it? You think McNair was all "golly gee" about it and it was Kubiak that had to tell the doddering old fool what was up?
How about this is McNair's team and he is getting smarter and smarter with each passing year. How about he saw that something needed drastic change, saw an opportunity when Jerrah fired his head coach, held a meeting with Bum, Gary, Rick, and Dante, and proceeded to hire Wade accordingly.
I'm sure that McNair respects and values Kubiak's football knowledge. However, I do not think he's blind to the reality of the state of his franchise.
You tell tru80texan that he does not understand how things work on Kirby. What makes you think that you have the inside knowledge on how things work on Kirby? The Texans FO is like the KGB on it's inner operations. Most of what we have is speculation, even the stuff John McClain spews tends to be opinion over actual knowledge. They do not let anyone in or much information out since the beginning of the franchise.
