Big Texan I have posted some possible running mates for Kubiak in other posts but I will post them here for you also. Look for him to hire guys like Dennison who is the OLC at Denver and an Alex Gibbs protege' or a guy like Brian Shottenheimer or other QB coach. He may go the route of the young college head coach for OC but I doubt it. I am currently petitioning to keep Jon Hoke on as DC cause I feel him with Kubiak's style of offense would have us purring on all cylinders. We still would need to do something with Casserly though.

GO Astros
Dude, your clueless. I am not going to waste keystrokes on that nonsense. Nuff said.

As to the question at hand, I don't want Haslett. I would be rather upset if it is Haslett. Kubiak gets a big thumbs up from me. I also like Jerry Gray, but I am leaning toward on offensive mind this time. The one major exception is Fisher. If he somehow became available, I would be on him like fly's on manure.

Porky so would about 8 other teams. I doubt he would come here when he could go somewere else with more talent. Like the Vikings.

I dont think a good coach is someone that makes players play above their potential.. I think a great coach is someone who makes players play TO their potential.


What that means is.. a coach like Capers can have Aikman, Moss, Rice, Payton, the colts Oline, basicly.. just give him a hall of famer dream team.. and they will go 8-8. While a coach like Bellichick can take good players and make them play like good players.

That is why when you see talent leaving a team, and suddenly the awesome HC doesnt seem so awesome.. its not because that one player or two were the only thing keeping his team winning.. not really anyway.. it just means that he lost a talented player. That player may go somewhere else and play half as well because the coach doesnt know how to use him.

Or a coach like Capers can take a team like the Panthers to a 12-4 record and a trip to the conference championship.

Let's not go overboard here. Capers failed this year. That's no doubt. To say he wouldn't succeed with the talent you're refering to is like saying that Barry Switzer couldn't win a Superbowl if given a good team. Capers isn't that bad. The whole organization has failed this season. Capers gets the bulk of the blame for sure but no need to make him sound like the worst coach ever. He's not a great coach and it's time for him to move on but let's keep it realistic here.

Apperantly you guys were not there watching the Oilers. They could have been a very solid team the last year in Houston but they kept the solid starters on the bench. Bud had not recieved the complete approval to leave. He was trying to spin it that the fans would not support the team and literally blew every game they played all the way down to playing third down defensive lineman for Ray Childeress. Fischer quit on Houston and you guys are short sighted if you can't see that. As for you key strokes you stick those where ever you would like. I knew more about football and Houston Teams by the time I was 10 as you will ever know.

How much of Kubiaks success is not from Mike Shanahan and how much is?

I want a HEAD COACH. Not a coordinator (although if we are going that route Kubiak is the wise choice) But I want Fisher. Everytime I see a coach Fisher led team, I see a players coach where the players give their all for that coach. I also see a team that executes to an extreme. Rember when Eddie George played, they would basically point to the side they were running and made you stop it. They executed very well. The real reason I want him though is because I remember how he made a 1-15 Oilers team turnaround into a Super Bowl team in less than 4 years. He has an eye for talent. Certainly guys like Reggie Swinton, or Sloan Thomas would not have been cut on a Jeff Fisher team.

I loved that Carolina team that Capers took to the NFC championship game, and watcing the Texans Offense last year, was..........well let's just say I had no problem saying I'm a Texan.
I have no doubts about Dom's coaching ability. Somethings gone wrong here in Houston...I have no clue what it is, it seems like so many things. But looking at the play from the offensive line, and the decision to axe the offensive coordinator, and promote the offensive line coach........It doesn't compute......doesn't make sense.

Then you've got a team with no real back-ups at any position, so you fire the coach, and go play golf with the GM.......WTH??

How about the golden domers, they look really good with him at the helm!!!! I would like to the OC from the broncos, i've heard alot of good thinks about him, and the way the o-line is going a guy with a solid running game under his belt would be nice for DD!
