I really don't see anything to look forward to this year football wise. The schedule will get easier soon but what's the point in celebrating if all we can beat is the weak sisters? I take no joy in that.

I'll never root for the Cowboys....at least as long as Jones is the owner. Maybe I'll shift to the Saints. They're regional at least...

Almost anybody would be better, but it would be best if we could seize Jack del Rio away from Denver. Jacksonville was a tough contender when he was there. Look what happened to them after they fired him. He used to outwit Kubes at every turn. Recall the success of the onside kick, the faked punt, and the hail Mary pass, all compared to the halfback pass the Texans tried against them.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.

His act wore thin in JAX with not only the players, but the fans as well.

Del Rio is pretty good if you want your football coach to look like a futbol coach.

Barring this being a 4-5 win season I think there is almost no chance Kubiak is fired UNLESS McNair goes to Kubiak and says "I want X done but the final decision remains with you but understand if it doesn't work out you may be gone."

Putting that aside, I see absolutely no reason to expect an improvement out of many of the coaches being suggested especially the NFL retreads. Cowher is an exception except he has been out for seven seasons now - doubt he comes back unless one of the Harbaughs or Belichick has a heart attack.

I don't know if there is a single coach that more than a 25% subset of this board would agree on as an upgrade. Each candidate has many, many detractors.

If Kubiak does get the ax, there will be a lot of discussion and then far more people upset rather than pleased with the choice.

Just want whoever is the head coach to be able to identify THE BEST available QB in next years draft when we pick. We absolutely have to hit on our choice and bring him along properly.

Lovie Smith would be my choice, but I don't think Kubes is getting fired this season unless the team goes 5-11 or worse.

Just like Kubiak: nice guy, mediocre coach. McNair will make a splash or just go with Wade......which scares me

Don't understand why people keep wanting Lovie Smith. i mean here's a guy who had untold amount of years to solidfy the qb position in Chicago..ultimately couldn't do it & at one point was overly loyal to a certain former texans qb until the FO made him do something......still got him fired b/c he couldn't even anchor a successful offense with a better qb. This very Texans regime had no issues handling his teams over the years either.

Kubiak has already won....he's beatin' all of us....think about it...

He's managed to keep his job as an NFL HC for damn near a decade while being average at best, all while blaming himself week after week for every short coming.

I salute you master troll *bow down*

Well let's see:

He mismanaged QBs.
His teams were erratic.
His teams were undisciplined.
His temper tantrums were annoying.
Reggie Williams, Matt Jones, Reggie Nelson, Derrick Harvey + a LT they just traded for a box of kittens and a TE in the 1st who hasn't been as productive as OD from the same draft.
With the exception of 2004-6 he failed to build a good D - and those were good mainly due to Coughlin draft picks Stroud and Henderson.

Oh and he was 65 - 63 with 1 playoff win.
