Default Accountability

McNair extended Kubiak the season he should have been fired. Is it any wonder players like Schaub and Bullock aren't held accountable? It's the corporate culture.

No, but players like Tate are held accountable when they fumble once and get benched even though he was having a kick-ass game.

I'd say it's favoritism, not accountability.

Either way, it's a helluva a way to run a franchise. At least the fans give them lots of money for the show.

You can argue that it's almost racism I mean the system is being run in good ol boy fashion.

This. Keshawn Martin fumbled and recovered it himself. The next punt return Keo was back there.

Hey, it works for the fans and it works for business, so what's to change? The games all sell out. *shrug*

Houston Texans, Inc. brags about consecutive Reliant "sellouts" since 2002...

...like that is something to brag about.

When you replace a qb its usually a permanent deal. At the very least one game. Add that to the fact that what's replacing him is probably not going to be very good. It makes it a tough decision. Ben Tate goes out for a quarter and you have a better guy taking up the slack. Then he can come back in and not miss a beat. At this point something needs to be done but its a totally different decision.

Your the second person to mention racism in this decision. I don't think you thought that statement through.

Ah. The only thing I remembered is he wasn't in the next punt return after the fumble. He returned later in the game, so maybe it was just a minor injury for Kmart..

Schaub didn't even have the sack to face the media after the game.

McNair's track record is not requiring any accountability. At least not until it's far too late.

Here's what he said:

"Matt's my guy. That was on me. I didn't put Matt in a position to win. It's on me."

I didn't actually listen, but I already know that's what he said, and so you do.
