Apples to oranges. Schaub's 2014 salary is not guaranteed, and waiving him creates cap room. Kubiak's 2014 salary is guaranteed, and firing him has no impact on the cap.

That said, my guess at what will happen is that Kubiak's fired along with most if not all of the coaching staff the week after the RS ends. Rick Smith is kept around to clean up the mess. (and as has been repeatedly stated, this is my guess as what will happen, not what should).

I still work in my garage all the time, but because I want to, not because of this dadgum team. I just shrug it off or even laugh about L's now.

I'm sure expectations will begin to grow again this off-season. Now? I just don't give a hoot

When the fan apathy has turned into no shows in tye parking lot and the stands,owners make changes. Good coaches dont lose 10 games in a row regardless of the situation. lok at how poor the steeler and giants started and now both have double the wins of the texans. Ever if u get in a small slump,you dont stay there.

But didn't McNair mention "Superbowl or bust" at the beginning of the year? Then if he keeps it all intact after this season, he's wishy washy.

Default Re: Poll: WILL McNair fire Kubiak?

My street credentials that i never really got are about to disappear but I AM A BELIEVER IN KUBIAK

1. Hire a new special teams coordinator

2. He needs to add some wrinkles to the offense and let the QB audible every time he feels necessary

3. Get everyone in that locker room to just shut up, i don't care if they are saying the right thing... i don't wanna hear nothing not even if they are 16-0 going into the playoffs

4. Keep schaub as the backup QB

5. Trade down and take the best RB available in rounds 1 and 2

6. I don't care when but take a former basketball player to play TE there isn't much to develop in getting a jump ball in the redzone

That doesn't embarrass me at all.

If you've got a system where if the QB makes the right reads, he'll have a successful play, then there's no reason to audible to something else.

A system where the QB can call any play in the playbook is great in theory. But if one or two people on the field don't know all of the playbook or get confused, then you can be totally and completely screwed.

Odds are they don't make the Super Bowl.

At 2-10 this season looks like a bust.

Super Bowl or Bust - check. He didn't say there would be accountability, did he?

I'm looking forward to Kubes coming back, improving to a non-losing 8-8, and all of the bogus "right way" talk to start again. Slow and steady. Sloooowwwww and steady.

McNair only cares about the bottom line and doing it the family way. He does not have the nads to change, just like his coach. I am apathetic to this franchise, and my disdain is largely due to the fact that it is a buyer's market in the PSL marketplace, and can't offload them until a coaching change happens.

This franchise, and my investment in dollars and time, have been embarrasing.

Fired. No doubt in my mind. This season has embarrassed McNair. And Kubiak's blood is the cost of that embarrassment.

I still believe that great teams are not made by changing coaches every year or two. But I think a lot depends on the team they're taking over.

I believe that the team that Kubiak took over would have taken ANYONE a few years to get turned around.

THIS team has enough talent to win some games (even though some people on this board don't think so.) I'm going to give someone a lot less time to start winning with this team than I did with Kubiak and the team he inherited from Capers.

If I believed that this is a talentless team, then I'd think it would take 4-5 years before I'd expect someone to start being successful because I don't think someone can take over a complete train-wreck and turn it around in less than 3 years.

The problem is that choosing a new coach is a crapshoot. So just because you change the GM and Coach, that doesn't mean they're going to be the right guys at the right time.

That my friend is no way based in reality. Kubiak is a HC in the NFL and they're all driven by ego. You and I have watched this cat from day one and if there's anything that can be discerned from what we've seen from day one is that the man certainly has the ego that will not in any shape, form or fashion allow him to "retire for health reasons".

Never happen, GI.
