Yeah, I went back & edited it.

I don't think it would be above the Texans to admit they should made a mistake last year by starting Kareem right away. This is a must win season for Kubiak, & unless you think Wade is trying to sabotage him, it doesn't make sense to start Kareem if they think he is not the best CB for the job.

Great point. While I certainly enjoy entertaining a good conspiracy theory, logic has to add up for it to work. I honestly don't see the F.O. or Kubiak's ego playing someone who is not what they consider the best at his position. It undermines their own job security, and that disconnect is where I don't see them starting KJ just because he was a high pick.

The point is a valid one. But let's not forget that Kubiak's concern for his job security didn't look overwhelming when he replaced Richard Smith with Frank Bush.

...oh yeah, and the TD they allowed. I mean, the guy was wide open. That coverage miscue should get fixed post haste.

I would ***** about not enough sacks but the Titans have only given up 9 sacks so far this season and we have two of them. I'm not surprised that Munchak would have a pretty good O-line.

The right move would have been to sign another corner in the off-season. For whatever reason, we didn't. We could have traded for one..... I don't know why we didn't, but we didn't.

So you're left going with what you've got.

I think Kubiak did the best he could in that situation. His "circle" just isn't that big, & for all we know he approached several candidates & they lolzd him & told their friends & put it on facebook & all that. Richard Smith & Frank Bush was probably the best he could do.....

Most guys would then get their GM to do their job & get him some good candidates, but our GM came out of Kubiak's circle, so scratch that. McNair realizes he screwed up, probably takes some of that blame... which is the only reason I can think of for Kubiak to still have a job.

So McNair has to get Phillips.

& that is the only reason I believe Kubiak has been here for so long.. because every decision is made.... group think, including McNair.

That's all I can come up with.

It was as perfect of a game as one will see. The homework is breaking down the tape to see what good likes at the individual, position and unit level - and then get on to the next opponent.

This kind of thread I hope to see after every game. We besnocker the opponent and then fairly gently criticise the mistakes.

Default Re: Not good enough!!

I would say the penalties, and our coaches decision to trot out players like Matt Schaub, and even Kevin Walter back on to the field after we went up 34-7. I know Matt was just handing off and Walter most likely just run blocking but why not give Lienart some reps, our running game was controlling the game and it is usually during these times that offensive players can get freak injuries, plus we just endured a month without our two best players in Andre and Mario and then just witnessed Manning going down, why risk it?

Amen. Arian did a LOT right on Sunday, but that play wasn't it.
