From listening to McNair's comments, it sounds to me like the last straw was putting Schaub in the game last night.

Anyone agree?

He really hem hawed when they asked him about it.

Thanks Gary for helping build a foundation for this franchise.

Too bad you weren't the guy to see this team make it thru to the next level. Can you please take Rick/Wade with you so the housecleaning can be complete.

Best of luck in your future endevoros. Take care of your health 1st.

I don't think 2-11 is "mid-season". Our season has been long over, even with 3 games to go.

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

Why is experience important to you (John McClain) "experience shows if coach can handle responsibility. Players may not make good decisions as they think as a player."

ON record "This has been horrible. The organized disciplined way is to do this after season but we need the extar time and are starting now to contact candidates. This is not a 'rebuilding process. We need to do something but have good core to turn this around."

Was Keenum being pulled a factor? "Stuttering. Case has up and downs. Penalties were unacceptable and I decided flying back last now to make move."

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

Do you wish you did it earlier season? "Schaub has one bad game and you don't want to move him but how long before you do? That was a coaching decision but most coaches would have gone with a known commodity (MS) but hindsight is 20/20. Those who have performed in past usually will perform again."

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

Surprised at this... I know most people hate Kubes but he's a great OC IMO... In many ways I don't think this was a 12-4 team the last couple years bc Schaub was never that great.

Listening to Mcnair it almost sounds like yanking Keenum was a big part in this. Almost wonder if they had some kind of agreement to not put Schaub in and Kubes putting him in was a final straw?

Kubes will get a job as OC in about a nanosecond when he's ready.

Edit- Just saw Marcus's post saying the same thing... Hadn't seen yours when I posted mine!

Ric Smith on draft "Too soon and we want to focus on this situation".

On candidates like Lovie Smith. McNair "Lovie is good example of those type of coaches not coaching who could be a candidate but we still want to keep process secret to not put active coaches on spot"


The end.

That was my biggest gripe right there. He stuck with the same game plan, over and over, even when it didn't work. If it worked the 1st half and the OTHER team made adjustements to counter it, we still stuck with it instead of changing to beat their adjustments. Bitter sweat I guess..

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

IF the Texans are smart they'll keep him as offensive Co-ordinator. The man is a HELL of an OC just not a good head coach. My reasoning?

Dick Labeau: GREAT player, GREAT DC...lousy head coach. The Steelers fired him and DC again and went to 4 Superbowls (two of which they won) with him as DC.

Dom Capers: SUCKED as head coach while here. Became the DC of the Packers...now has a Superbowl ring.

Jack DelRio: SUCKED as a head coach and now is the DC in Denver.


Buddy Ryan:
As a Head coach is an abusive TYRANT as a DC coached the 85 Bears. Superbowl ring...

Keep Kubiak as OC. If he focuses ENTIRELY on the offense we can win this thing.


Now then. BRING IN BILL COWHER!
