I'd prefer an AFC team pick him up but I do hope he gets a HC gig.

If I had the energy, I'd go dig up quotes from people like Texecutioner that stated with absolute certainty that Kubiak would not be a head coach this season.

I don't think Kubiak is the man to turn around that team, but I hope he gets the opportunity somewhere. I don't think Cleveland would be too bad for him.

Kubiak being interviewed doesn't mean he'll get the job. Nor does it mean he'll be a great head coach again.

I wish him well, but I stand behind my thoughts that he's a mediocre leader. If he finds success elsewhere, cool. But that doesn't mean we were wrong in firing him.

Wasn't that the job Wade wanted last year? Those guys have low standards. It would be interesting to see Wade & Kubiak compete for that job.....

Default Re: Bucs to interview kubiak

ESPN keeps talking about how great the Lions job is but I have to admit that the Buccaneers is equally another great team to coach.

You have a young Rookie quarterback (Mike Glennon) that played very well (2,608 Yards Passing, 19 TDs, and 9 INTs), a promising RB in Doug Martin (suffering from a Sophomore slump but should bounce back), and a young but talented defense.

Add a few pieces this off season and with a solid draft you could be very well on your way to a playoff berth and beyond.

With this being said Adam Schefter mentioned that teams usually go in the opposite direction when they hire coaches. The opposite of Greg Schiano is Gary Kubiak who is loyal, fairly quiet, and someone who you won't see hollering in players faces.

If he DOES get the job I wish him the very best. He did take this team that needed a QB and gambled on an unproven backup (after the Carr era), took us to two playoffs, and helped us find our diamond in the rust (Arian Foster).

If Mr. "It's on me" follows me out here I am going to be pizzed. The Glaziers cant be that stupid. I don't even want him out here as a OC which was the rumor I heard today. Hopefully Lovie Smith takes the job and ends this nonsense.

For the life of me I can't see how any team could be thinking he's a decent HC right now. The NFL has caught up to his outdated offense. His work with QBs is way overrated and the dude can't even watch the crucial FG attempts.

Again I don't even hire him as an OC right now.

Not saying he'll be a good head coach, and damn sure not saying he shouldn't have been fired. Just saying it's silly to think he'd never be a head coach again, much less with the certainty that some people said he wouldn't. The mere fact that he's being interviewed for a HC job shows that NFL people disagree with that certainty.

I thought/think he'd be an OC for a year. But I think he'll be a HC again. Whether or not he does well depends on how he adjusts to what he's learned.

I wish him well, but he had to go.

Agreed. Too many teams that have had as bad a history as ours over the last 10 years & still can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. If I were TB, or Buffalo, or Dallas I'm thinking 10 year plan. It would start with 4 years of Kubiak.

I'm sure McNair has been working the phones telling everyone how much Kubiak has done for this team that you don't see on Sundays.

Good luck to Kubes, except when you play the Texans and especially when you play the Sister Kissers.

He took the worst team in the NFL with basically AJ, Pitts, D-Rob and 50 turds, and made them competitive every year until the train wreck, including 2 division titles, 2 playoff appearances and 2 playoff wins. There were rough patches, but the Texans have been an exciting team to watch for most of your time here.

If he learned something from his experience here in Houston then maybe he'll be a good HC someday. I don't think that day is today though and I haven't seen anything from him that would indicate that he learned much. He still seems to think that his system is going to do it all and that having a locker room full of friends means that you have a team behind you. At least that's the page he seemed to be on when he got fired.

If some time were to pass and he'd take the time to think through everything then maybe that would change.

I agree.

However, being average / mediocre is not a death sentence in the NFL. As I've pointed out before, there are many well known coaches who have made careers out of it. Wade Philips, Norv Turner, and their king, Marty Schottenheimer, are all great examples of head coaches who can build winning regular season teams that consistently fail in the playoffs.

The list is long of these types of coaches, so Kubiak is just another name on it.
