Default Questions for Kubiak today on his radio show

I plan on calling in. What do you want me to ask him? And phrase your words carefully, as I got to get it past the screener. Also, if I choose your question, I'll read it off directly from the board. And I'll give y'all a heads up on what question I choose before I call in.

Here are some examples that come to my head so far.

Coach, can you tell me why you decided to play conservative on the last drive of the second half, as it looked like from the way Carr was moving the ball, you had time to at least try for a field goal.

Another one:

On the deep balls to AJ, was Carr purposely throwing up jump balls by design, or was was he just underthrowing them?

I could probably phrase those better coherently, but those are two just off the top of my head.

If you had to give a gameball to someone on the team for last weekends game, who would it have been?

Do you expect Faggins, Flannagan, and Peek to be back on the field in Dallas?

What happened to Biesal, and will he be ok?

Given he success the D had with blitzing, will this be implemented more in the future?

Who will cover TO in Dallas?

What scheme was the defense using in the final 5 minutes of the 4th quarter?

Default Re: Questions for Kubiak today on his radio show

I would ask about the tackling, or lack there of. First off, commend him on his first NFL victory as a head coach, that's a huge win for him and this franchise. So, I would say something along the lines of:

"Congratulations on your first win as a head coach. It was a great win for this city and the franchise. I would like to ask you what are your plans for working with the defensive unit on their tackling fundamentals? It seemed like we were in proper positions to make plays yesterday, but the runner was able to pick up extra yards because he was not being wrapped up when hit by defenders."

Something along those lines would be nice to hear....maybe you should also add into the mix that it was nice to see the defenseive unit be more aggressive this week. We need to keep from harping on him this week, IMHO.

I got one:

Coach, When Carr decided to throw that long deep ball to AJ down the sideline, do you think that maybe next week the offensive line will do a better job in not getting in his face when he throws it?

Hey Coach, you had high praise for Dunta Robinson's play in the Redskins game. Do you think you might have jinxed him, as it looked he didn't have that hot of a game yesterday? And what did you think of the entire secondary as a whole?

Coach, will you ever have confidence in your 5 year, starting veteran, QB to run a 2 minute drill?

Or,

You have coached some great QB's, and some average ones. When do you think Carr will be up to an average QB and allow him to run a 2 minute drill?

Coach Kubiak, what will you do during the bye to improve your running game?

Coach Kubiak, Carr had a great game, but how many times during the game do you think his decision making could have been better?

That's a good question too. The first thing that came to mind when Salaam went down was, well at least we'll get to see Winston play. Then I hear them say Bedell was in at LT, as I stood there with a Capers look thinking I guess they must really think Winston isn't ready yet. Who knows?

I agree...great question. Leave the 2 minute drill question for somebody else. Judging from the calls that he already gets on that show, that'll probably be asked by every other caller...just rephrased every time.

From everything I've heard outside of this board, Winston was very raw coming into the league. This may be a surprise considering that he came from Miami. Possibly his success there came from a combination of pure ability and being surrounded by other top players. Miami usually has more talent on the field then the teams they face, so they all can look pretty good.

Default Re: Questions for Kubiak today on his radio show

I watched the Texans' highlight show on channel 13 last night and Bob Allen interviewed Kubiak. Bob asked him about the difference in our defense yesterday compared to our first 3 games and IIRC Kubiak said something to the effect of "I just told Richard to go out and be aggressive". I am curious to know, if this is correct, why did we wait so long to get aggressive defensively, especially after playing much better offensive teams in weeks 1-3 compared to Miami.

I'll listen today as usual and hope to hear your call Marcus. That being said, I hope the fans don't intend on reaming him a new one after yesterday's performance. I think this team is a work in progress and we looked much better defensively than we did a week before. I hope to see us make progressive strides like that every week that will lead up to us having a good record and maybe even playoff asperations next season. It is a shame to have people pick you apart for every single action you make. This team is learning along with the coach right now and people need to remember that he wasn't part of the "five year plan" debacle we had to go through.

How about something more positive.

Coach congrats on your 1st win as head coach of the Houston Texans. You beat a team supposedly headed for the super bowl. Our next game is against our most obvious hated rival the Dallas cowboys. With the time off will our injured starters be back in the line up?
