Default Re: Coaching candidates

We've had a defensive minded coach and an offensive minded coach. I'm hoping for a special teams minded coach.

Then after he gets fired McNair will have experience from all 3 phases of the game and take on a Jerry Jones role

Default McNairs, we deserve better. Time to show you want a winner not a joke.

Mr. Bob McNair and Cal,

There are many that think you only care about the money. There are many that think you have no clue on how to run a football team. if you really want a winner you need to take action.

I am not sure how it feels to be the owner of the Texans, the biggest disappointment in the NFL, but as a fan of the Texans it really sucks. We have no ability to change what is happening. You on the other hand have complete control to make a change.

Show the fans that you really do want a champion. Clean house including the GM. Understand it does not take forever to start over but it will take longer than forever to have a champion with this front office.

Honestly, if this coach and GM come back next year I think the love affair this city has with the team will be over..

Houston is a fickle market and if the Howard/Hardin combo kicks it into high gear we'll see more clutch-city type hype than love-ya-blu talk..

I think McNair realizes that he can't bring back Kubiak next year. I believe it's just a matter of time before Kubiak is gone. Rick Smith I don't have a gut feeling on, but I honestly would be shocked if Kubiak is back next year, I really would.

So who replaces Kubiak is the question I worry about.

Everything that Kubiak has done this season says should be fired, but I seriously doubt that will happen. I have resisted the urge to jump on the "McNair doesn't care because he's making big money regardless of the teams failure', but I am so dismayed that I don't even know what it will take to force McNair to admit this is a total failure of a team and hire people that know how to win.

We could try a rugby coach.

You need to get away from the old school I control the world coach . Bill B is controlling but I bet he doesn't get too much into Brady's business .

That said.....the Chiefs are a QB away from being a SB contender. Reid walked into a fantastic situation there. They have a great defense, a great running game, and a good O-Line.

Reid did a great job upgrading the QB position in the offseason (Brady Quinn/Matt Cassell to Alex Smith) but that took them from struggling team to good team. They won't take the next step until they get better at QB.

Sound familiar?
They're probably a QB and a receiver or two away from a SB. Sounds VERY familiar. I wonder if they're going to have an utterly shameful meltdown a year or two from now.

Going into the DEN-KC game yesterday, the teams had a combined 1 win against teams with a winning record. Meaning Denver and KC have been playing some pretty crappy teams to be where they're both at this year. Although I think Denver is more legit than KC right now. KC is just a fraud waiting to be exposed.

Default Get McNair's Attention

Hard to hurt McNair financially when most of seats are season tickets.

The only way to show displeasure is to BUY NOTHING while in stadium.
There are water fountains if you are thirsty. I don't think can bring in food but you may be able to bring in an empty water bottle. If you go to game do not buy anything.

We only have two home games remaining.

Default Re: The All Encompassing FIRE KUBIAK & REPLACEMENT thread II

From a business perspective, Keenum has the value of built-in customer loyalty in Houston. For that reason alone, Bob would want Keenum starting during a losing season. If the team can't win, at least the fans can cheer on the hometown hero. Kubiak doesn't appreciate that reason, so now there's a broader schism between him and the owner. Despite what move would actually improve the win/loss record, benching Keenum right now will be enough to get Kubiak fired.

The best marketing move that Bob can make right now is to assure fans that Keenum will start if they show up to root for him.
