Do the Texans now have a more subtle version of the Cowboys organization structure?
Does it matter what the organization structure is as long as the structure works?

Owners and GMs frequently force Head Coaches to sacrifice coordinators. Sometimes young HCs aren't really trusted to put together their entire staff. Sometimes powerful GMs dictate a lot of what happens.

My prediction is that we'll make the playoffs with ease in this division, but lack a killer instinct and lose our first playoff game. Fans will act like Kubiak won a SB for that as well and Bob will get him an extension. Then it's next season where I'll worry a lot.

Why worry? You'll know what's going to happen. Manning will be back, Colts will be back on top. Gabbert will have it all figured out plus a bad-ass receiver from the draft. Tennessee will get behind Hasselbeck & be a better mediocre than we will be.

Nothing to worry about.

I'm not sure why you decided to respond if you were just going to go off the wall and write something like that.

It's remarkable they've won as much as they have since Kubiak has been with team given their defense has been poop.

The End.
Didn't the Texans field the same poop defense during September, October, and December? Why did it matter more in November than other months? Also, it was the offense that spit the bit during November '09. The defense played well enough to win most of those games.

The Texans win this month, and no one will care what happened in the past. If they lose in November, then yes, this trend deserves more scrutiny.

Nope. Still running scripted plays (as many teams do), but I have gotten the sense that the number of scripted plays has been cut by nealry 50%...

That's a good thing in that it allows you to adjust to what they're doing to you a lot sooner.

Considering how many times we've come out and scored on our 1st drive this season, maybe we should script the whole damned game.

Default

When guys execute scripted plays work well.

But all the script does is give you a starting point for your play calling and it lets the offense start comfortably to get into a rythm When you get into certain situations you abandon the script though.

Kubiak has mentioned "abandoning the script" before because of penalties or some other loss if yardage or no gain.

I think the first drives are still scripted. I just think that the offense in general is executing well on those drives.

Agreed I think at times that Gary is just a slow learner and is taking a lot longer to adjust to being the HC. This year I've seen somewhat more of a desperate or more risk taking approach to Gary that I seem to like..

Ughh did I just say that..

I'm not completely sure that the Colts would just go back to double digit wins every season just by Manning coming back. Their O-line and offense might look better than the Benny Hill show they currently are trotting out there, but that defense is still horrible. Both of their hotshot corners from 2010 (Lacey and Powers) both aren't very good this year.

I think during the lockout that Gary took some kind of coaching course He doesn't seem to be as adamant about trying to fit a square play into a round game no matter how many times it fails. He doesn't seem to get as uptight about managing the clock either. Maybe Wade's aw shucks laid back attitude is contagious. I do know from watching him on the sidelines that he isn't the same Gary Kubiak we've had. This month may be the ultimate test.

I don't see an elephant in the room either. All I see are a bunch of negative "in-spiteing" assholes.
