Here are my problems with that. First, the NFL is so far away from the "real" business you just can't compare. 31 teams end every year by missing the playoffs or losing their last game of the year. Every year teams have to figure out what is the best for the club - change or stability. If this was the real world there would be many shades of success, not just the Superbowl and 31 failures.
You can go ahead and say it's time for a change with the Texans. I do too. I am Superbowl starved tbh. Does change mean you will be successful in the future? We could get a Jim Harbaugh and be instant successes right? We could also get Bruce Matthews, Jason Garrett or Greg Schiano.
Moving on from Kubiak is a HUGE risk for McNair. Kubiak is a know commodity. He's had success. Enough? Maybe not. There ARE legitimate reasons he's failed in the past. There ARE legitimate reasons to let him go. McNair has to weigh them and decide what is best for the team. If he decides to move on, will the replacement be better, same or worse? Do we really know someone will be better?
Andy Reid. It was time to move on. Philly fans were disgusted seeing their team fail time and time again. They could care less that the team had 9 playoff appearances, 4 NFC champion game appearances and 1 Superbowl appearance in 14 years under Reid. The Eagles bring in a fresh coach with an innovative system. Have they been awesome after the coaching change? Nope. They are 4-5 after Reid took them to a terrible 4-12 season. Improved? Maybe. Was it Reid's fault they sucked? Yeah - he sucks so bad as a coach he's lead his new team with a garbage offense to 9-0.
Keep Kubiak and you have stability. Stability means players on the roster are also known commodities. Scouts know what the coaches like. Players know what the coaches like. Players know the system and can mentor new players...
Fire Kubiak and you have a great big ?
Changes are needed but to what extent they are made is really up to McNair.
