Stress releases hormones and enzymes that shrink arteries. Do not underestimate the effects of stress in regards to a stroke or TIA. I've found that I can keep my BP under control as long as I watch what I eat and don't let work stress me out. I've learned that stepping back, clearing my mind and taking a deep breath help me tremendously(it helps not having a 40 second clock going in the background). I'm also able to leave work at work. I absolutely do not take work home with me. I don't know if an NFL coach can do that. I have tens to hundreds to thousands of people watching what I do at work, not millions. And not on TV.

Love him or hate him, but love or hate him as the head football coach of the Houston Texans not as a man with a family. I hope he takes as much time as he needs to heal.

Part of me hopes he resigns as head coach and football altogether. Head coaches nowadays are under so much stress, work way too many hours and because of working too much probably eat like SHyte. See also, Coach Fox. Prayers are with him as well.

Everything but the hours are under your control, though. You can spend 14 hours watching game film or watching youtube and not be the least stressed. Stress is purely mental and controllable. If the Texans were 6-2, Kubiak wouldn't be nearly as stressed. He just needs to realize when he's done his best. It has to reach a point where there isn't something on film that he missed or some drill that he didn't think of. Kubiak needs to find that point at where he's done all he can do and be confident going into the game. I think that Keenum's success should relieve a lot of that stress. He's making a lot of positive plays and very few negative plays.

Honestly, I sort of hope not for the sake of his health.

Things aren't going to get easier with our fanbase and the pressure to succeed seems to drive Kubiak to try to do perhaps too much. We saw in the second half of the game Sunday night, he really is the brains behind the offense meaning that another season would bring more games and pressure to do more to fix things.

Personally, I'd be surprised if he didn't retire at the end of this season for a year or two and comeback later once he is out of the stroke woods as a coordinator.

Is it possible a heavy workload / sleep deprivation can lead to a mini-stroke? Why are we attributing this to his work?

I wish Kubiak the absolute best. I've been wanting him gone for a while but now with the success we have been seeing with keenum it really makes me think that Kubiaks coaching appeared horrible because of how bad our QB is/was.

We didn't look so bad in the first half of the game Sunday night

I think Kubiak's problem is also exacerbated by the fact that he calls the plays on offense. If/when he does come back, it would probably do him some good to turn over the play-calling to Dennison.

Andre, earlier this week (Monday) eluded to the fact that Dennison was the play caller after Gary left us.
Quote:
(on if Head Coach Gary Kubiak missed practice this week and if it would impact game preparation or if Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison has that in control) “If he’s not here, then Rico (Rick Dennison) can handle it. That’s pretty much it. When you have adversity, you just have to adjust to it. Right now, we’ve been going through a lot of adversity. This is another piece of it that we have to deal with. In my opinion, I think he’ll be back.”

No. Heard on TV that doctors want him to stay away for at least 90 days. That would be the rest of the season.

I am sure his motivation as a coach will get him back on the sideline this season, but I still feel that both Kubiak and Smith should be fired for the Matt Schaub fiasco. Matt should have never been given a new contract.

Default Re: Does Gary return?

We all know we only lost to Indy because Kubiak wasnt calling the offense in the 2nd half, everyone could see the difference/lack of creativity with Dennison calling the game. I know some people want hard headed kubiak gone, but i have seen a different play caller since Case has become the QB. I am willing to give kubiak a shot to see what he and case can do, and if KC and Indy are any indication then i like what i see.

Two completely different topics in my mind. I admire the man, and his contribution to Texans history, and wish him well in all aspects of life, including his health.
I do, however want to see a coaching change. His health concerns do not change that in any way.

So yes, at an appropriate time, Fire Gary Kubiak. (now is obviously not that time)

It IS 2 different topics. The fact that some people call for Kubiak to get fired for weeks or even years then use the "he should retire - it's good for his health" crap is self-serving garbage. They don't care one bit about his health they just want Kubiak gone.

After seeing Keenum in the past 2 games, my view is shifting to give Kubiak and co 1 more lame duck year. I'm not completely there yet but the next 8 games will help.

There are people who cheered Case getting a shot without any pleasure in Schaub's injury.

The two topics can be completely different, but they are often not.
