Default How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

The Rams are saying what a good job Linehan has done with "so many injuries". Wow, maybe Kubiak should be up for coach of the year...

Rams president John Shaw said on Dec. 10 that Linehan would be back, and that it was unfair to judge job performance because the team has had so many injuries. The Rams have 11 players on injured reserve, including three offensive line starters and top pass rusher Leonard Little.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=090...o&confirm=true

The main topic of the article is how Torry Holt went off on Linehan on the sideline, but the above quote made me think about the job Kubiak has done.

Kubiak has done a great jon especially as we have 16 - 17 players on IR. And Andre missed 7 games.

The Texans next season will have a Brown-like season and make the playoffs with four to six losses.

A would mean playoffs... he'd get an a if we reach the playoffs next year even...


he's been doing swell considering he took over a team that went 2 - 14


edit-- after rereading, this one hit me
d'you think the word swell came from a colloquialized version of 'so well'?

I think with the injury situation and Rick Smith finding players to fit the needs of the team, I think both have done a great job this year. Both get an A.

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

Unable to vote b/c the season is not over yet.

To this point he has done a C job. .500 is average , a C is average.

If he goes 7-9 it will be a D.

If he goes 8-8 it will remain a C

If he goes 9-7 it will go to a B.

The only way that he would have gotten an A is if we made the playoffs.

I fully expect an A job next year.

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

Given the massive amount of injuries, I would give him a B. He has made some questionable decisions, but he is still learning the ways of being an NFL coach. I think he is going to be a fine coach for a number of years to come. To finish .500 would be an amazing feat considering that we are playing with a team that is basically composed of spare parts.

Overall, I think he deserves a B. He has had to overcome a lot with all of the injuries and still had this team in the playoff hunt up until last week. To me that is saying something.
He is a young coach and is going to make mistakes, but is going to continue to improve also. I see playoffs next season.

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

are the Texans headed in the right direction? is there a better coach or one you would rather see walking the sidelines, making the decisions

not really

regardless of record, the Texans are playing cohesive team ball on both sides buying into the system eliminating silly turnovers (plaqued team ealier in season) demonstrating improvement & better execution. given the talent available players are working their butts off, there is no complaining (at least what we hear of) & maximizing talent. seems like excellent coaching to me - A

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

The offense has improved both years that he has been in charge, despite the well documented problems. He hasn't drafted much on offense, yet he has still improved the team in that area. The defense has improved as well. He's drafted more premium talent for that side of the ball, but you have to give him credit for doing that. Overall, the team is headed in the right direction, and has shown clear signs of improvement. There have been a couple games this year that really had me down, but with injuries, lack of production from key spots, and a shortage of talent in a few areas, he's done an outstanding job.

Everyone thought his ass was going to be fired midway through the season, so he has done a great job.

I figured we would be debating Cowher vs Marty right now

I give him a "B" esp with the am't of injuries

One thing is for sure, Kubiak has this team playing no matter what and they don't quit no matter who is injured
beginning of the season

if you gave me an IR list and told me what happened, and our record is what it is.. I'd have laughed at you

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

This season has been a bit of a roller coaster and I've been unhappy at the product at times (inconsistent play) but at the start of the year I figured we would be a .500 team and we are pretty much on course for that so while Kubiak hasn't been able to exceed expecations he hasn't really put out a product that has been a dissapointment. I'd just like us to keep playing physical football and find a few more key players and continue to build our depth this offseason so we can make our first playoff run next year....so I guess I'm happy with Kubiak and this regime since they are what I thought they were....more or less.

I give him a high B. He has been far from perfect, but has done well considering the injuries we've had. He still needs to work on clock management and dumb challenges, but I think he's heading in the right direction.

An A is almost perfect so, using your logic, wouldnt we have to go 16-0 or 15-1 or something for him to get that

i give him a B and i thought that was pretty harsh.. i think gary's an excellent coach and think hes turning this ship around pretty fast and hes doing it the right way- no quick fixes or shortcuts.. building around a strong D which is difficult to do.. been right about most of the big decisions. the only big 'miss' hes made in my book (hence the B) is the weaver contract

actually id just agree with this... we can b1tch about small things he does like the challenges or occassional conservativeness (word?) but in the grand scheme of things, hes a guy who the players seem to like and play hard for and imo like shanahan said hes a guy that more often than not have put our guys in good positions to win... we've beaten teams that look better than us on paper and we're starting to finally become relevant in the nfl

Playcalling/Clock Management/Challenges

Kubiak has just been plain outcoached at times, the Jacksonville and San Diego games come to mind. And the Atlanta game was just embarrassing.

But I gave him a B. Kubes seems to be a player's coach, he gets the best out of 'em. The injuries were too much to overcome. Had Andre played every game I think our record would be better.

Default Re: How Good of a Job Has Kubiak Done?

I would the combined efforts of Kubiak and Smith a B+.

A for the GM, B for the Coach.

I am pleased with how the season went, being in the hunt till late, at least equalling our best record, continuing to add contributors, other players coming on, what isn't to appreciate.

We fell short of the playoffs, so it can't be an A yet.

with all the injurys? coming off a 2-14 & 6-10 seasons respectivley the Texans where expected to still make the playoffs? is that realistic & how could Kubiak have done more with what he had to work with? inquiring minds want to know

IMO.....the Texans win one of the last two games (both extremely difficult teams to beat) & finish the season 8-8, I'd call that exceeding expectations with outstanding effort in all phases of the organization
