They want to create a stable team instead of firing everyone every 3-4 years hoping that they miraculously get the right combination. Is that comfort in losing? No way. They just don't want to end up like the many teams that hit the reset button every few years because they don't win a Superbowl. They want to give everyone, coaches and players, an opportunity to improve.

Sometimes they pulled the trigger pretty quick. See Trindon Holliday. Nobody complained when he was released. They had seen enough of his muffing balls and bad decisions. Then he becomes what he should have been here in Denver and fans complain we weren't patient enough and should have tied the roster spot up for him.

When your season starts and you feel like you can make it to the playoffs and possibly the Superbowl - you usually go with a veteran QB. Rarely will you see a potential playoff team dump their veteran in season and bring in a young (unproven) QB unless there is an injury. See New England Bledsoe > Brady. See San Francisco Smith > Kaepernick. See Arizona Warner (not injured) -not bringing in Lienart. The Texans were in the same boat with Schaub. We knew coming in he was likely our best bet to get to and advance in the playoffs. Schaub gets injured. Keenum got his chance and ran with it.

Here's where things change. When your team is CLEARLY out of the playoff picture like the Texans at 2-6, why get rid of players like Bullock? He's young. He has 8 more games to get his mind right. You lose nothing by keeping him on the roster. Some say it's a lack of accountability. Then Ed Reed, Derek Newton, Schaub, Kareem Jackson & Jonathan Joseph should be released at the same time as Bullock. They have all made game losing plays (or lack of in Reed's case) in multiple games. Does anyone REALLY think we could replace all those players in the middle of the season and improve the team? Get rid of Bullock after the season if he doesn't become the best kicker in the game over the next 8 games.

After all that crap I just said, Bullock should have been fired after all the misses early in the season. At least then the season had hope left and a vet could have stabilized the situation. Now it would take a miracle to get to the playoffs. I doubt that Rackers or Graham would be the catalyst of that miracle.
Lol. That's funny. So, you agree with me.

Re: Trindon Holliday. My point was: it goes HIGHER than Trindon Holliday. He was mismanged and coached poorly. That's a result of them letting Joe Marciano do whatever he wants with zero accountability. Heck, instead of firing him, they actually got him a freaking ASSISTANT this year. And what good did that do?

Our head coach is a "qb guru." That's been his label. Ok. So, why wasn't he able to plan for this QB mess in advance? Shouldn't he have had a Plan B in place for our QB, if he's such an expert? Shouldn't he have seen that Schaub was on a downward slope?

And, about the Texans being patient. Ok, maybe. But, they are living in a bubble. Professionally, we are all measured against our peers. It's how life works. The Texans act as if it takes 8 years to improve a team, and that, if you just let people do their jobs long enough, they will eventually succeed. That's simply not true. Other teams do major turn-around's in a few years. It's the reality of the NFL. There is no other team in the NFL that would keep a kicker after missing three field goals during a nationally-televised game. It simply would not happen on other teams.

You said that they are patient because they wanted to create a stable team. Ok. Do you consider this team "stable?" We have a team full of superstars that are poorly managed and are likely getting tired of playing for a mediocre team. No matter what the players say publicly, they are likely fed up with this team privately.

There is a difference between stable and stagnant.

We are likely stuck with Gary Kubiak for several more years to come, regardless of his success rate. I am starting to accept that. In addition, no way would McNair ever get rid of a coach after having a health scare. Knowing McNair, he'll probably blame the fans for putting too much pressure on Gary, getting him stressed out enough to get sick (yep, I'm serious).

It may sound like I'm talking nonsense, but, I judge actions, not words. The Texans say one thing, but their actions tell a different story.

Cloak,

Exactly. I didn't even mention the message that they're sending to other players by not holding Bullock accountable. Look at how much this team came alive once Schaub was benched and Keenum went in.

They aren't getting rid of Bullock because he's Kubiak's guy and Kubiak is out sick at the moment.

But, if I'm the GM or head coach I wouldn't be letting that stop me. Not if I care about winning.

Correct. Rick Smith SHOULD step in here and make this change, and would be justified and well within the scope of his job to do so.

The good Doctor makes a salient point.

This goes with my feelings on the Texans Defense - As angry as I saw Duane Brown get when Schaub threw a pick-6, I can only imagine how motivated the Texans "D" was at that point. It sure can't help them watching our kicker shank another one either.

I can't argue that point Doc. You are probably right. His leash should still probably be fairly short. His kicks have possibly cost the team 1 game. Kareem Jackson's penalties have possibly cost us 2. We could go on with most of the players. I know it's easy to single out the kicker. He has 2 jobs - make kicks and kick off. He has been terrible at one and not good at the other. That puts him in line with most of the players on the team this season. Everyone not named AJ have been performing poorly.

The only point that could possibly counter yours is - what if he makes an awesome recovery and starts making all of his kicks? What does that do to the team's psyche?

I'm not saying Bullock SHOULD be kept. Only that the team has no huge reason to cut 1 underperforming player on a team full of them.

Hi. My name is Case Keenum. I am the solution Coach Kubiak had in mind.

Texans improved in year 1 of the Kubiak era. I won't get into it again in this thread but basically years 1-3 have legitimate reasons to be overlooked when evaluating the Kubiak era. If you think I'm calling for Kubes to be back - see my signature.

I don't agree with this though. McNair will do what he does every year. He'll weigh the pros and cons of keeping Kubiak. Getting rid of Kubiak is risky. Many head coaches excel in their second jobs after having some success in the first. Is it a change of scenery or just that the coaches are better than their records were. I think that if Keenum tears through the next 8 games under Kubiak then McNair will have trouble letting him go. If Keenum struggles badly and this team bombs, McNair could easily fire or change Kubiak's position within the organization. Kubiak getting ill should have little influence on McNair's decision - imo.

He cant, Gary has final say on the 53 man roster. It's in his contract.

Fact is, Gary Kubiak is the reason this team is where it is. These are his handpicked players.

With that said Get Well Soon Gary

This is not hard to believe. With Kubiak laid up, Smith is the only one who could make a decision and it would be in bad taste to do so. As soon as Kubes is back and capable of being in on the decision you might see some action being taken.

Default Re: All Encompassing FIRE Randy Bullock

i'm no expert. i've rewatched the 3 misses from sunday repeatedly and i just dont like his form at all. first off, he's slightly different on each. he begins his first two with a slight lean back or hesitation. he also seems to be a bit bouncy on his approach, not settling himself with his right leg and making the plant more difficult. i prefer a much more solid right foot than being on your toes to calm and balance the next step. finally he's more over the top of the ball than i like, which can aid in distance at the cost of accuracy. the last kick he was off-balance from the get go, falling off to his left before finishing the first step.

in my opinion the least important part of the kick is the kick itsself. it's all about the approach - step, plant, swing. you have to be balanced and you have to be accurate with your plant foot. this is even more important when you're struggling. players often get too worried about the situation and lose their form, or they try to adjust instead of getting the simple mechanics right. much like chuck hayes who could shoot freethrows in college, but looked like he was having a seizure by the end of his pro career.

it's my conclusion that he's got too much to fix. he cant calm his mind enough to perform in stressful situations, and he has mechanical flaws as well that will be very difficult to iron out. as such he's probably going to be pretty streaky his entire career.
