I think Shanahan was only more Kubiak rewarding his friends and any limited success had more to do with Eric Winston, Demeco Ryans, Jacoby Jones, Neil Rackers, Lawrence Vickers, Joel Dressen, Jason Allen, Mike Brisel and Mario Williams being on the team rather than Mike Shanahan's son being the OC. There is also an argument for the reason the Texans are not as successful today is because they've never been able to replace Eric Winston, Demeco Ryans, Jacoby Jones, Neil Rackers, Lawrence Vickers, Joel Dressen, Jason Allen, Mike Brisel and Mario Williams with equal or better quality talent. And why is that? The last 4 years the Texans have had their hands tied and their backs up against the salary cap wall.
