He may not be a good owner, but he certainly isn't cheap. If you want to blame a lack of signing free agents, blame Rick Smith and Kubiak for for that, not McNair.
McNair didn't bribe anybody.

LA was awarded the expansion team, but had to come up with nearly a billion dollars. They had a deadline. They scrambled, couldn't come up with the money and blew the deadline. The NFL called McNair and told him he was next up. He basically said, "Is that all?"

And he wrote a check. And we have a team.

The answer is NONE.
Ahman Green???? It didn't work out, but it cost him a lot of money.

He doesn't usually overpay, but to say he is cheap is wrong.

His biggest fault may end up being that he is too loyal.

Fair enough. He didn't. I was just assuming based on several things over the last year or so. I still can't get over the fact that, the VERY DAY Kubiak signed his extension, he released a statement saying he wouldn't come back to coaching. And, that was around the same time that John Fox was questionable in Carolina.

Default Kubiak doesn't play to win, he plays to keep it close and have a chance to win...

in the 4th quarter. Hear me out. i first noticed this last year when I compared Kubiak's style a track coach who tells his runners if you get in the lead and start pulling away , slow up until the other guy catches up. In the same way if you get behind run hard until you catch up. I did not realize how far this attitude in buried in Kubiak's pysche. You see it game by game, they don't do anything to lose the game early. We always start slow. Then if we have an opponent we can dominate we come back strong to get close again. It happens too often to be a coincidence.

Kubiak this philosophy MIGHT have been OK at the very beggining when taking over a 2-14 team but not now. I personally don't like this style EVER. If you can bury a team early do it and then you don't have to go to the 4th quarter in what basically is a coin toss. Guess what if you BURY a team early you have a better than coin toss chance of winning.

If the Texans are close to .500 say 4-4 we play this way. Last year at the end of the season we were well below .500 so he needs to change to try and get to .500. Ever wonder why once we got good enough to compete we seem to be right around .500.

Kubiak has said it many times we had a chance to win in the 4th quarter. That is all I ask. The only problem with this is guess what the other team has a chance also. COIN TOSS!!!! I wonder what the odds are in a coin toss.

I would guess the Texans final record will be close. This is still the coaching staffs goal is to keep it close and try to win it in the 4th. With this philosophy this team will be , guess what a .500 team.

In order for Kubiak to be fired, the Texans must continue to lose and lose embarrassingly. Looking at it that way, this game couldn't have gone any better.

I want them to hire an experienced football guy to run this organization.

Yes Uncle BoB invested 700 mil nine years ago. That investment is now worth atleast 1.1 bil. Not a bad return on his $$$$. Off the backs of the GREAT FANS of the HOUSTON TEXANS.

BTW if you're a RELIANT customer you can thank your higher bill to the 300 mill stadium naming rights over 10 yrs that Uncle BoB used to help buy this franchise. With the taxpayers also contributing $$$$. All Uncle BoB had to put up front was operating $$$$ basically. Hence no top tier FA's or top tier executives.

Bottom line is the Great Fans of the Houston Texans deserve better than the consIstently medicore to crappy product that has been put on the field for the last 9 yrs.

Don't see a bright side, honestly I hope the team wins every game from here on out. Whether that keeps Kubiak's job or not, I'd just like to have a playoff team every once in awhile.

I don't think you understand ; Kubiak doesn't want to blow a team out he wants the chance to win it in a coin toss in the 4th. Of course he would like to win all those close games but it doesn't work like that. You win some, Redskins, Chiefs, and you lose some Chargers , Jags. You never win a blow out because you don't want to do that, but you may get blown out because if the other team is better you probably will never win with this philosophy, but you can easily be blown out. Just think about it.

We already had that remember? it was the Charlie Casserly & Dom Capers era. How'd that work out for us? Again, how exactly is any of this McNair's fault? He's done the the experienced GM & HC & he's done the upcoming GM & HC. What the hell else is the man supposed to do? It's not his job to make open field tackles or so some competency covering a WR.
