The fact that McNair said he's NOT looking at this as a long-term rebuild, says he's happy with Rick Smith. He wouldn't be sitting beside him if he wasn't.

Good point. Washington will make some changes for sure even if Shanahan keeps his job. With the unhappiness with the offense up there, and as tough as it would be to do, Shanny might have to fire his son.

Is this really true? If so, doubt he is fired, maybe ever.

if you're suggesting getting rid of smith and bringing in someone who can truly fill the GM position, i agree. smith was brought in as kubiak's yes man. mcnair got someone to follow him around and bounce football thoughts off of, and he became mcnair's yes man, both of them learning the process and agreeing with everything the other says.

i'll echo yours and other's sentiment - the first piece to any rebuild needs to be a GM. he should be the personnel and coaching decision maker.

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

I was never a Kubiak fan, and I have wanted a change in head coach for a while, but the news today is sad. From what I hear Kubiak is a classy guy, so best wishes to him in the future. Hopefully, he'll find another job in the NFL soon.

I do have more respect for Bob McNair. Drastic change needs to happen when your team has gone from Super Bowl bound to 2-11. I just wonder though where the Texans would be today if he had done this back in 2010. However, I do understand that sometimes patience is key to making the best decision. Hopefully, they make the right choice in head coach to make us competitive next year.

From McNair's press conference he pretty much said he's looking for a head coach that's strong on defense with previous head coaching experience. That's Lovie Smith. If they pick him, they better get a good offensive coordinator too.

Just heard on ESPN that Kubiak said after the game that he was considering starting Schaub for the rest of the games. That man asked to be fired.

Wouldn't it have been more classless to interview candidates while Kubiak still held the job?

No need putting it off. Take the time to interview as many candidates as needed.

Not a Lovie Smith fan.
