No. One playoff berth in 6 years does not warrant an extension. In a perfect world, Kubiak should coach out the final year on his contract and prove 2011 isn't a fluke.

But, we don't live in a perfect world. And McNair will give Kubiak, Rick Smith, and all of the assistants extensions. And we will see if 2011 is the start of good times. Or a fluke.

2012 is the last year on Kubiak's contract. He received a 3 year deal following the 2009 "winning season".

Easy Yes. The Texans have under achieved in the past but the only reason it was an under achievment and not what the Texans really were capable of was due to fumbles, missed field goals, and injuries, not Gary Kubiak. Gary has drafted and play called and hired to put us in a great position.

......he will get a contract extension because the people who make those decisions know what they are doing

let him finish out his contract. Lets see how it goes next year when everyone is healthy (hopefully stay that way), before offering an extension.

No. He's not even a .500 head coach. One successful season out of six does not warrant it, IMO.

McNair will probably do it, though. It's the way he rolls. Gary has been on the right track for years now, regardless of results, and that's all that matters to the big boss. Well, that and umpteen consecutive sellouts.

It is not a question of firing Kubiak, it is a question of extending him past 2012 after the 2011 season. The answer should be a resounding "no" until we see how 2012 goes, specifically having Phillips aboard.

Another 10+ win season in 2012 would in my mind confirm that a corner has been turned and then justify a long term extension. another 6-10 or 8-8 road-to-nowhere season would get a firing from me.

I think McNair will extend him though based on this year and the expectation that next season will be another step in the right direction without injuries like we've had this year. He'll base it on the faith he has in Gary which will be a shame (though we all hope he's right and it works out).

This is where we need McNair the businessman to step up. He has the leverage with Kubiak since he is under contract and this is Kubiak's hometown.

What is the upside to extending Kubiak this year, in the absence of not securing Phillips?

With the possible exception of Wade being here as a potential replacement (which doesn't excite me in the least for whatever that's worth), what's different now than in 2009? If anything, the 2011 season is clearly more worthy of an extension than that year was, regardless of what happens from here on out. So what do you think is different that would cause Bob to sit tight when he felt an extension was necessary and appropriate two years ago?

I don't see any but I think he'll do it anyway. I don't agree with it, I just think that's what will happen.

Dude just earned his 1st "unearned" extension this year, McNair has earned enough good wil from him to let him hang out to dry a little before he extends him again. Right now, he's just got to concentrate on making sure that this season isn't an anomaly.

The 2009 extension delivered a 6-10 season in 2010. In 2011 Phillips showed up and a ten win season was delivered. That is all we know at this point.

It's McNair's money with no bearing on the cap, but he certainly is in the driver's seat to wait. As someone vested since day one I do not want to witness a ten win season every ten or six years.

There is no need to extend at this point.
