You guys are really something Mike Sherman is calling the plays that have the best chance to succeed. Now , if the plays aren't succeeding, guess what ? It's everyones fault but the players ? Com'on. Too funny. Yeah that's right the coaches don't know how to call the plays correctly. Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. Too funny. Where is John Lovitz's Tommy Flanagan at ?

That is such a bad argument. OK, by that logic, Joe Pendry was calling the plays that had the best chance to succeed and shouldn't have been fired. I agree that all blame shouldn't be placed on the coaches and players do need to execute, but coaches should share some of the blame for the plays they call.

Nooooo, in that curcumstance...It wasn't all the plyers fault...Just DC's. Swicth DC and all things will be possible...wasn't that the company line. Now some Jack ass has the hots for the jaw and is promising the moon if we make the switch. Like what ? When we swtiched QBs ? Uh huh now tell me another one.

so because I think Gary is a bad head coach (he has made headway with the offense but a lot of that is due to teh fact that Carr isn't our QB anymore...of which Gary is partly to blame for DC being our QB in 05) I should be a Cowboys fan? give me a break. i knew DC sucked when all of you had his Tiger Beat pictures on your lockers and i know Kubes sucks way in advance as well....nothing surprising. I am just not blind and will not homer for someone who sucks just because he is affiliated with my hometown team.

but whatever, im a bad fan and should go to Cowboys because I think Kubes is soft and a bad fit at Head Coach...nice logic.

can you troubleshoot networks? can you show up to a job site without reaking of homegrown bud and Thunderbird wine? if so, i'll hire ya with a raise

maybe I can hire Cowher as a technician...yesterday was such a bad day, nothing was working...i could just have him yell at the machines and make them work next time that happens....

Oh yes that's a brilliant idea. Nothing like changing your D to a sytle you have but maybe two D-line men and maybe one LB (and it ain't Ryans) for. Yup, man that usre would be a great idea, deciamting the strongest part of our D. Man I wish you could be our GM!!

I don't think the following is needed, but just in case:

I don't think the following is needed, but just in case:
so the defense we currently run IS suited to our talent? wow, it sure hasn't shown on the field....

football is football. all the excuses about personnel and the like are just that...excuses. you act like going from 3-4 to 4-3 is some huge big deal. it isn't. the only thing we would have to add is a true fireplug NT. To be honest, I think both Okoye and Mario could flourish playing the DE position in a 3-4. We would have to add some speed on the edge at OLB but finding those guys isn't that hard....unless your Casserley and you think your smarter than everyone else.

bottom line is that our defense sucks in a 3-4 or 4-3. Cowher would fix that. This guy had people leaving his team every year but could find pieces to put in place and coach em up and get results. No team lost more talent on an annual basis than the Steelers since the Salary Cap era....yet Cowher made it work. Something tells me he could make it work here.

I am sorry that Kubiak is a bad head coach, but I am just telling the truth. A head coach is more than Xs and Os...more than anything its getting guys ready to play on Sunday and hiring/maintaining a good staff of coaches. He has failed on those last two with flying colors. We come out flat and we have a horrific staff...but whatever, I am the bad guy because we need a change and everyone else is too homer to admit it....just like with DC.

I was right then when everyone said i was a hater and was wrong....and I am right on this one too.

kubiak must go...flatlining spineless carebear coaching isnt going to work in the NFL much less the NFL's AFC South.

The Truth is Kubiak was brought in to take over a 2-14 football team.
If you expected him to come in here and literally make us world beaters in a year than shame on you, ain't gonna happen.

We are sitting here going into week 11 and we are one game behind .500 and are wild card contenders...and you are calling for Kubiaks head?

It wouldn't suprise me if Kubiak left for A&M.

After the season is done, he may reflect on where he is at with the Texans and he may think going to A&M is a better deal than sticking it out.

We'll see...

Please spare me the loyalty to McNair speech. It's the NFL!

Daahmm...

Posters on this site had me convinced at the beginning of the season that our problem had been solved...

Looks now like it was a little more widespread than that...

This year , depending on whose post you read, its the O line, the running backs, the d line the d backs or the coaching.

A few have even questioned our new solution to the previous problem.

I think the best thing I can do is let this season play itself out before placing any "blame", or forming an opinion.

S.H..just used your post as a good jumping in spot.
