To date Kubiak is the most successful head coach the Texans have ever had. Kubiak's success could've been even better if he had a strong GM with control over all football operations with a long term vision.

The way he lost the team last year, and probably not trying to find Schaub's eventual replacement at some point in one of those offseasons, got him rightfully fired, but I don't really blame him for anything major except last year's collapse and our having to move on from him.

Even that is subjective. The one sure thing about being a head coach in the NFL is that your job is always in jeopardy.

Great points, man.

No question Bob makes more money than most. Fielding Championship football teams, not so much. If fielding a championship football team is Bob's priority, he should hire Eliot Wolf or Erica DeCosta and then get the heck out of the way.

Not scared, just bust with work. Smith saved his own butt by throwing Kubiak under the bus and playing the political game. (Godfather/Gala's etc.... I wonder how many gala's Ozzie attends?)

The reason I started this thread is I want peoples opinions on what has changed and what makes them think this regime will turn out differently than the last. These are legitimate questions. IMHO They aren't IYO, and this is one of the places we disagree. Sorry that Smthiak didn't turn out well. Even though you piled on basically saying that I didn't know what I was talking about when I said the Gary/Wade combo would never win a SB. You sir are a front runner.

Trust me when I tell you if you want to get in the gutter I can but wont get in there with the best of them. My time is spent on better things. BTW, whatever happened to the attack the post but not the poster motto that used to be the rule around here. I'm surprised that I-cak didn't remove your inappropriate post. (Actually I'm not, because he probably agrees with you)

I know it's hard for you to stay classy but would appreciate it if you would make an effort. I try to stay above board and would suggest you do the same. I'm not asking you to agree with my posts or opinions. However my opinions are just as valid as yours and these differing opinions are what make this MB great. Or maybe you just love being the MB tough guy?

Stay classy my friend, peace out.

Get well soon Q

For me, it's all blind hope and optimism at this point. O'Brien does not have a track record as NFL HC, so we can only speculate and choose to be optimistic or pessimistic (or our own sense of 'realistic').

I'm not the happiest shiniest fan, and tbh, the QB situation could really make me wonder what the heck is going on. AJ is probably thinking the same thing right now. For the life of me, I simply cannot be positive about Fitzpatrick...or any of the other QBs at this point.

What does give me hope is RAC and some solid talent at various positions, both offense and defense. Having a superstar like Watt is huge. While he can't do it alone, his talent, drive, and leadership can do wonders with a great DC like RAC. I actually think our defense will be top 10 this year. Blind optimism, for sure, but at least there is something to base it on.

But on offense, that QB position is where it's at, and right now, all we can do is hope O'Brien turns lemons into lemonade.

Thanks for the reply

I'm very optimistic. The Texans finally did what I wanted them to do for yrs. Fix the trenches. For me this yr is about finding out if Savage is the QB of the future. If he's not then trading up and getting the franchise QB is priority #1 in the 2015 draft. IMHO

I've moved on from the Kubiak yrs despite backstabbing Smith being allowed to leetch off of McNair. (Cal in particular.)
I think BoB will be an average NFL coach and that should be adequate. Just so we're not saddled with somebody in way over his head. With the possible exceptions of Bill Peterson and Jerry Glanville, Kubes had to be the worst head coach that ever came down the pipe.

I don't. Belichick assistants are 0-9 in measured success and BOB is a BB assistant and has loaded his staff w/ BB assistants. Kubiak was saddled with Rick Smith and the scouting department and BOB is saddled with Rick Smith and the same scouting department. (nothing changed there) Everyone says how BOB is a QB Guru. I don't understand why. Because he coached Brady? Brady was Brady before BOB. Kubiak coached Young and Elway. I'm not sure that Kubiak isn't the better QB Coach. Hiring a 17 - 9 college coach is one of the weaker hires in the NFL of a college coach. Fans of BOB say he has a genius football IQ, I don't see it so we will have to see. Early indicators suggest the all to familiar outcome for another Belichick assistant. I'm not sure that Kraft and Belichick didn't orchestrate BOB's departure out of NE after the sideline incident with Brady and convinced Penn St to hire BOB. And I'm not sure that Kraft hoodwinked his old buddy Bob one more time with advice that BOB would be his best hire out there. When Bob laid out his parameters for finding a new HC (Kubiak's firing PC), they fit perfectly with BOB's resume. Almost as if Bob already had his mind made up about BOB. That mindset and pattern of behavior kind of goes hand in hand with the pursuit and signing of Ed Reed. I wouldn't be surprised if the comparison produced similar results.

I'm the eternal optimist. I always expect us to go all the way until we're knocked out. I was that way with the Astros until they hired Wade, who never got over being fired at Philadelphia. He was always trying to turn us into them, something I've had problems with since the Atlanta love days in local Houston politics beginning with Whitmire

Be HOUSTON, not a copy of someone else and that includes New England.

I think we played hard but we didn't do the right things "AND THAT'S ON ME"..... ~ Gary Kubiak

Sure, we heard that too often from Kubiak, but to suggest he didn't elevate this team from the one he took over is asinine.

Last season was an anomaly in my opinion.... Somehow last year's team fragmented and "Murphy's Law" applied.

It wasn't ALL on Kubiak. It wasn't on Wade after that. It wasn't on injuries. It wasn't on the offensive line. It wasn't on the loss of Cushing (again - and again from a cheap shot to the knee). It wasn't about JJo playing injured and so forth and so on!!



Irish folks say, that "if I didn't have bad luck, I would have no luck at at all"


***********
I actually look forward to a pretty good season, even with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm...........

As an aside, Rick Smith, get your shyte together and talk AJ into camp. THAT'S ON YOUR WATCH!!!!!

Wow, I'm shocked that we're still discussing the massive failure that was the Gary Kubiak years...

There is a difference between wanting to win and hating to lose. In theory, everyone wants to win. It's human nature. However, it's hating to lose that sets people apart, especially in sports.

Kubiak didn't seem to be bothered by losing. I think his entire career as a backup QB instilled a mentality of being ok with second place, and he took that into his coaching career. So, as a head coach, he coached from a place of fear and worry, instead of a place of not wanting to experience losing.

If we lose? Hey, that's ok. At least we tried! We'll get 'em next time!

That's Gary Kubiak's mindset. The guy is not a loser, but, he's not a winner, either.

We don't know how Bill O'Brien will be as a coach; but, I can tell that at the very least he seems like someone who isn't afraid to FIRE PEOPLE. That was a trait that Kubiak lacked.

One day in the future, sports analysts will look back at which coaches were given time, money, resources, lots of good talent, and failed to capitalize on what they had. That analysis will not be kind to Gary Kubiak.

Although they failed to make the playoffs in 2009, the streak ended when the team rallied to win their final three regular season games to record back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2010 in the final game of the season to improve their record to 97.

I remember back in 2006, the Broncos were in need of a QB. Two of the best QBs from the previous NCAA season were in that draft, at one time or another, both were thought of as top 5 prospects at one time or another.

Even if they could have afforded it, I doubt they would have traded up for either one of them.

Instead, Shanahan "knew" Jay Cutler was the best QB in that draft, even though no one was talking about him, even though he did not have as good a season, or career for that matter, as the other two.

With the benefit of hindsight we can see he was right. Vince didn't have anything once he got by his talent. He didn't have the ability (want to) to improve his skills, or the heart to stick in there when the going gets tough & Matt Lienart didn't have the desire to be anything special.

My point, is I don't care if we don't take a QB next season. If OB/Smith doesn't see a franchise QB in next years draft, I'm fine with that. But I see QBs that aren't ever going to win a Super Bowl in the play offs every year. So if he decides not to take a QB, he better:
  1. Find a way to win regardless
  2. Be right & there isn't a franchise QB in the group

Meh. The last 3 years of the Kubiak regime was like watching "Groundhog Day." O'Brien's "strictly business" tack with this team is refreshing to see, and I want to see how this season plays out.

Kubiak's teams lacked discipline in the closing moments of games, and in his final year, they quit on him altogether. Discipline, Gameplanning, Execution is what I want from this season. I know Kubiak was NOT the man to bring that to this team.

Be HOUSTON, not a copy of someone else and that includes New England.
As a young man I was that way too. Over the years I have learned that is OFTEN not the case. I also realized that most of these guys are PE teachers and not rocket scientist. They make as many mistakes as all other humans and are guilty of their fair share of flawed thinking. What I also learned is there is usually a handful of guys who know how to win more games than the rest of the collective bunch.
