Kubiak is a poor head coach, but there have been worse. Don't count on him getting the boot. There are only so many brilliant head coaches; not every team can have one.

Yes, he should be fired. Chances are he won't be.

You are estimating only 30% attendance which is comical and why I asked where you got it from

Seriously, take a remedial reading course.

Past - There was no "proposed sellout" about it. Every Texans game to date has been sold out. If you saw the game then it was sold out. People have not shown up but they have been wasting purchased tickets. It has never been anywhere close to 50k no shows.

Future - The "your numbers" comment was about the future and your speculated ticket sales loss next season.

FYI - club seats and suites are PSLs. The only way you find them for individual games is resales by the owners which does not count as unsold single game tickets because they are already paid for.

By the way, the paid attendance is listed at the bottom of each GameHQ on espn. For example the paid attendance of the recent Jags game was 71,659. NE was 71,769.

I've just voted on this and even though we've hit another new low, I still voted no. I honestly don't hink he will, I hope I'm wrong. On a side note, it's amazing how off topic this thread has gone.

I dont know how much the minority owners paid but I am assuming around 100 mil. 300+200+100 mil = 600 mil if my math is correct. This means BoB paid out of his pocket 100 mil. You can figure out the % BoB is making on his $$$$ with little to no risk.

Tell me what type businesses you can make that kind of $$$$ with little risk?
The kinds of businesses billionaires have access to. McNair is now in real estate, biotech, and investments. When you've got that kind of money, you can invest it relatively safely and still make big profits.

Default Re: Poll: WILL McNair fire Kubiak?

This decision is about Bob McNair more than any other time. It will define him for years.

If he somehow tries to justify keeping Kubiak & Co. after this dismal season (and that's putting a positive spin on it), he will be seen as a hack owner that does not have the balls to do what needs to be done to build a winning franchise. He will be known as Boob McNair.

I think he has to fire Kubiak after seeing this 11 game losing streak (and counting), especially watching that garbage last night. Kubiak has lost this team. They are playing undisciplined football, some look lost, others look like they've checked out, and honestly only see about 3-4 players who are still giving 100% (and we know who they are).

Kubiak's generic reply to everything - "It's my fault. It's on me." - needs to be accepted. He's telling the world that this team represents him, and everything that is happening is ultimately his responsibility.

Now let's see if Mr. McNair will hold him accountable.

SMDH getting swept by the friggin' Jaguars. Pathetic doesn't even begin to describe it.

Default Re: Poll: WILL McNair fire Kubiak?

Like I said: I think it's all about if McNair thinks Kubiak can produce a winner here. I voted "Yes" he would fire him because I thought that losing this much -- especially after how high hopes were -- would shake his confidence in Smithiak. I expect both of them to be fired.
