I think a lot of you guys are giving him to much grief, because he is passionate on the board. We're all big time fans man. Otherwise we wouldn't be here discussing these things. Know whatta I mean!!
That's what I was saying; people have differing opinions. People who don't agree with Kubiak aren't necessarily haters, "supporters" aren't just mindless koolaid sippers. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. But, I guess my opinion is invalidated now since GP has a different one and has stopped reading my posts.

Good grief, people.

I was harder on Kubiak than anyone a couple of years ago, and I said that if he ever led us to the playoffs, I'd back off. I've kept my word, and don't call for his firing as much as I used to.

Yes, I still think he's a mediocre coach, but, at this point, I'm just enjoying the ride.

And, let's be real: this is Wade's team. Kubiak is a head coach in name only. When this team wins a championship, Wade will be the one getting most of the glory.

Regardless, let's just enjoy being 5-0.

For the record. I have twice provided responses to each of his points. He would obviously rather dismiss anything than have a discussion about football.

Yup - Wade's offense is awesome isn't it? Wade needs to consider firing his special teams coach in the offseason if he doesn't improve the unit. Wade made some poor choices in last years draft with Brandon Harris & Roc Carmichael. Guys can't even see the field. What wastes of draft picks. Wade needs to run his scounting department better. /sarcasm

No doubt, Wade IS the difference from this team being a stuck-in-the-ditch 8-8 club to a playoff team. Wade DID turn the defense from embarrassing to a thing of beauty. Wade DOESN'T run the team though. Wade is to defense what Kubiak is to offense. I'm a Wade fan. He's the last piece that made the team I cheer for go from just better than the Lions & Raiders to as good as the Ravens & Patriots.

Make no mistake though: This is Kubiak's team - for better or worse.

My point is, why can't we just relax and accept the fact that we're a great team instead of having the insipid debate about whether Kubiak should be fired? Of course we should take it game-by-game.

And, frankly, I say bring it on to the Packers, Ravens Bears and Pats. We can hang.

I'm tired of all the hand-wringing by the fans.

Despite some of its obvious shortcomings, this is the best team the Texans have ever fielded, and it's one of the best teams in the NFL right now. And in a weak division to boot. Although we realistically have no reason to complain some of us still do. For my part it's not meant to aggravate, it's just keeping a level head. Many many years of Houston sports fandom has bread into my soul a sense of foreboding, and as much as that sucks, itís just the way it is.

I agree that it is ridiculous to talk about firing Gary Kubiak. I certainly don't agree with that. And I'm not hand-wringing. I just haven't seen this team do enough yet to have a lot of confidence that we should be talking about championship run, as was in the other post. I am looking forward to tonight's game to see how we do.

Yeah I too have that sense of foreboding. We are not a city with a dominant team over time. Enjoy this season while we have it.

Nah, I think I'll enjoy things now and for the remainder of the season, and think about what could be instead of waiting until things are almost finished and looking back and thinking how much fun it should have been.

And if there's a disappointment or three along the way, well, I'm pretty sure I've got the cojones to deal with it instead of getting pissed at the world for my lot in life.

you cant blame some texan fans for being skeptical and not blindly following this regime because we have a 5-0 record after finally breaking through last year and winning a playoff game.

That does not buy you invincibility mode in this business.

Greatness requires CONSTANT VERIFICATION.

They are there, but they're playing an elite QB with his back against the wall record wise.

I'm glad we're playing Rodgers tonight. We needed this challenge.

We get it. You don't like Kubiak, and you think his offensive play calling and preparation is overrated. You have some valid points in my opinion, but you don't need to keep pounding that point in. I understand the whole history thing, but up until this game we've played the kind of football that Kubiak wants to see and we have won games under his methodical approach whether it's right or wrong.


You're not going to gain any followers by continuing to try and prove this at this point though. Let time show the results as we have another 10 games to see what Gary can do with this offense.
