Unnecessary money on unknown commodities. Invest in talent...not guesswork. Dont act like schaubs contract isn't going to hurt this team. I don't want mcnair to be cheap but schrewd is a compliment for a buisnessman. Screw nice...do whats necessary to secure some lombardis. This **** is getting old.

The fact that we're able to cut him as of June 1st without much harm to the team only a year and a half removed from the extension is proof that it wasn't made to hurt the team long-term. Nobody could have foreseen Schaub's arm failing him like it did; if anything, through the first ten games of the season (especially vs. Denver) he looked like he had been underpaid.

But that ain't going to happen.

I voted for other. I think Bob will hire a guy to put between himself & his employees, Rick Smith & Gary Kubiak.

The only problem with that, is we'll just be looking for a new head coach next year, or the year after. So with that in mind, in light of Kubiak's stroke, & in appreciation of everything Gary has done right for pro football in Houston, I hope he promotes Kubiak to VP of football operations, or something, tomorrow & name Dennison interim head coach.

In my dream world, Gary won't pick his replacement. The group will... Cal, Rick, McNair, & Gary... but we'll have a new HC next year.



& he can fire his VP of football operations mid-season 2014... he's paying him through 2014 anyway.
You're weird, TK.

Lots of people realized a year or 2 ago that this team was winning inspite of schaub...not because of him. The denver victory might be the hallmark of his career. What about the other 15 games last year?

Two years ago Schaub was en route to a career year before Fat Albert Haynesworth fell on his foot, and he's never been the same quite since. And before that Schaub was one of the pillars keeping this team up despite the terrible, terrible defense weighing it down.

Prior to today's game, I was in Gary's corner all the way & willing to defend him to the end. But, when he took Case out & put Schaub back in I lost it. If Gary is our coach next year I'll be shocked. There is no way McNair can justify keeping him on after this year. I thought AJ walking off the field before the game was over was louder than any words he could've spoken.
