Default Poll: WILL McNair fire Kubiak?

Read it carefully now.....

It's not SHOULD he fire him?

The question is, do you think he WILL fire him?

I'll start it off and say no, for the following reasons.

1) He always takes into account the amount of injuries.
2) He considers Kubiak to be the best in the business in bringing along QBs.
3) The stroke gave him a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Not an option to my knowledge. Start up a new one with a poll and I will merge this into it.

Default Re: Poll: WILL McNair fire Kubiak?

I think the question everyone wants to know is if it's more likely Kubiak will be fired or Mack Brown. Start a poll about that, I bet people will like it.

Yes he will fire him. It is blatantly obvious around the country that the fans have turned on kubiak and the Texans. Media blasts him daily. When you start to lose your fan base the that typically equates to lost revenues. At the end of the day Bob is a money man which is why he bought a team.

Kubiak will be fired because he has lost 10 in a row in a season that we were pegged as many as contenders for the Super Bowl.

Your comments are interesting, because I've disagreed with people who say that the fans have no power. Of course we do. The Texans will likely lose money next year because they can't raise ticket prices even a penny because of Gary Kubiak. That's real world, hard core, logic and economics.

However, emotion can sometimes trump economics. As much as I think Kubiak should be fired, McNair has a deep affinity for the guy. I have seen people in the workplace that were totally incompetent slide by because someone liked them.

Kubiak should be fired, but, McNair really likes the guy. It's emotional for him. McNair cares less about winning a Super Bowl than he does about his relationship with Gary Kubiak.

I can see McNair doing it and not based on liking Kubiak.

IF McNair believes the #1 problem is the QB he may keep Kubiak thinking the problem this year is the unexpected cratering of their starting QB and the belief Kubiak is a QB guy to develop a new starter between Keenum and a draft pick.

Not saying it is the right decision but a scenario I would not be shocked by.

I don't think he'll have to. Kubiak will retire for health reasons.

That my friend is no way based in reality. Kubiak is a HC in the NFL and they're all driven by ego. You and I have watched this cat from day one and if there's anything that can be discerned from what we've seen from day one is that the man certainly has the ego that will not in any shape, form or fashion allow him to "retire for health reasons".

Never happen, GI.

Not quite. If they keep Kubiak another year, NO WAY will they be able to justify raising ticket prices even a penny. It would be impossible. That means that they will lose money for next year.

If they start winning next year, they can raise prices the following year. But next year? No way.

Bob can forget about an increase in profits for 2014.

You are reasoning like a liberal : Bob McNair will lose money if he doesn't INCREASE his PROFITS. I reason like a business man : you are losing money only if your financial statement is in the red. I have no idea what the financial condition of the Texan organization is, but I've read that it is one of the most profitable in the league. It's unlikely the organization will be in the red next season, especially if we start winning again.

Based solely on profitability, business' seldom make major changes after only one red statement. I think this argument can be put to bed as a reason McNair may make changes.

If changes are made it will be based on McNair's analysis and decision on whether Kubiak can turn the team around next season and whether we are on track to winning in the playoffs.

The mood of the fans are unlikely to be a primary influence.

I expect McNair to fire Kubiak after this season. OTOH, I expected McNair to fire Kubiak after the 6-10 season, so I could be wrong.

I don't think Kubiak is coming back next season. How that happens, I don't know, but I just don't think he'll be back.


If he does come back I'll be pissed as hell, I'll ***** about it in here, but I'll still be watching next season just as I always will.
