I honestly have no issue with it. The guy has had a rough year and if he doesn't want to talk to the media an hour after getting fired I'm completely fine with it.
Yeah I guess you're right. Considering his health I'm sure this was stressful for him and his family. I wish him all the best.

I think this is true. No point in declaring no way he gets the HC job if he he's your interim.

Folks, McNair is going to talk to candidates over the next month or so. I wouldn't get too worried nor excited no matter who he talks to at this point.

My heat goes out to Kubes & his family. Thank you!

From this point forward let's don't get attached to the person but his ability to win this city & Bob McNair an NFL Championship

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!
Can you name a single instance of this ever happening in the NFL? Can anyone? I don't think it has ever been done and I don't think it ever will be done.

I wish people would quit suggesting this. It is pretty much impossible.

I'm disturbed by Rick Smith not feeling any heat. Talk about Teflon Man. But, I'm still hopeful the Texans can bring in the right man to lead this organization.

Because that's what has been missing from the start. Leadership. I want someone who will lookup from his call sheet and watch the plays. I want someone who is respected, and yes, feared by his players. I want someone that other good coaches want to work with.

You know a leader when you see one. I never saw Kubiak as that guy.

Statement From Gary Kubiak

Quote:
I want to thank Bob McNair and his family for giving me my first head coaching opportunity in the National Football League. Bob has treated me with the utmost class and respect throughout my career with the Texans. I am appreciative of him for bringing me back to Houston to coach my hometown team.

I want thank the players and coaches for all the work they have put in during my years with the Texans. Though we came up short this season, the work, effort and sacrifice they gave me and this organization over the last eight seasons is not to be taken for granted. I want to wish them all the best.

I want to thank the people in the organization for their support over all the years. We could not have achieved our goals without their tireless work and commitment to our team.

Lastly, my family and I want to thank the city of Houston for their support of the football team and our family. We had a great run here and we will never forget our back-to-back AFC South Championships. Coming back home was a dream come true for all of us. This will always be our home. Thank you.

I'm hoping against hope that Wade is only interim. That's ok; he won't interfere with the process of losing out.

We have already seen enough to know Case will be a good backup but not a starter. But if trying to evaluate him causes us to win enough games to lose 1st overall pick, we can no longer get a top QB to replace him and Schaub.

So waiting until the fourth of fifth round to draft a QB is way too late. If not in Round 1, then in 2. Definitely no later than 3.

Default Re: Kubiak just got fired

Personally I hope that Gary was thrown out the door head first. All he ever did was make this team an embarrassment and he set this franchise back 8 to 10 years now. He always put his personal relationships over this team's success and refused to ever hold accountability. He doesn't deserve another coaching job other than maybe at a small school in college. The only reason why he ever made the playoffs in Houston was because McNair forced Wade on him where the defense was turned around over night while Gary refused to fire Smith before that. He thought he could win with Carr as well. One of the worst offensive minds I've ever watched as a fan from his stubborn nature to stick to one system and to be completely gutless to deviate away from it. Good riddance Gary. You should have been fired 3 or 4 years ago.
