Kubiak has his work cut out for him as he takes over a 2-14 team in dire need of help on both sides of the ball. It is Kubiak's first head coaching job, but he enters with a great track record. After 11 years as the offensive coordinator for the Broncos, Kubiak arrives in Houston ready to ignite an offense that has been anemic for most of the franchise's four-year history.

Throughout the offseason, Kubiak didn't ignore the defense, which is being transformed from a 3-4 to a 4-3. He lobbied for and eventually landed defensive end Mario Williams as the team's No. 1 overall pick in the draft. It wasn't a popular selection as far as the fans were concerned, but it did fill a major hole in a defense that ranked 31st overall last year.

Kubiak takes over a roster that returns 19 starters from 2005, but not all of them will win back their old jobs. Kubiak's biggest chore is bringing an aura of winning into a locker room that has experienced very little success.
Pretty much sums up the article:

That's a very fair assessment of where we are and where we're going without making overgeneralized or exaggerated claims. The assumption is that the system will work, and it should, and that, more than any player, should make the difference this year.

Default The System

I think the system will help the players as much as the players will help the system. We are now running the system we were built for, and everyone on the team should look at the opportuity in front of them. Now is the time.
