I agree with you, however disagreed with the "common viewpoint" back then. The Texans just went 6-10 so IMO not much to regress back to. If the goal was just to make the playoffs and win a playoff game it was a good call I guess, however they were never going to go further without a real HC.

It's party time tonight. I think I was almost more excited for this news than hearing that Kubes was out.

I just had an epiphany...I must have died some time around lunch. This is too much for it to be true.

I didn't want to believe Marciano was staying because of Kubiak. Marciano was here before Kubiak, but firing him now makes it seem Kubiak was the only reason he was still here.

Ah well.

He was just like Kubiak and Wade. Couldn't adjust to the new rules and was left in the dust.

Special teams used to be a strength of this team. Ever since they changed the wedge rule, the Texans haven't recovered.

Yeah that is a little strange TK. I kinda felt like Marciano was kinda forced onto Kubiak by McNair.

3 yrs ahead of where they are now.

Does the same question apply to Rick? In 3 more yrs hopefully he will be gone and this regime will be history.
