Arrow Kubiak Presser Quotes

A couple that was interesting, you can check out all of them at ht.com

(on if he has decided to stick with QB Matt Schaub as the starter)

Quote:
“Yeah, nothing’s changed. I’m trying to evaluate the ballgame to see how some of the things we’re doing so poorly that are not giving us a chance to win, but nothing has changed. Nothing’s changed with our team.”

on if they have the technology to rewind and watch replays before challenging a play)

Quote:
“Our technology is whatever the visiting team gives us in the booths. So we’ve got TV up there. Sometimes we do get the replay; sometimes we don’t. So you have to make decisions. Unfortunately on the long pass, we did not see it until after they had went up and snapped the ball. That was a decision you just had to make off the cuff and I wish I’d a made it. I wish I’d have thrown it because it definitely would have come back.”

(on how tough it is to trust a player when they say to challenge a play)

Quote:
“Sometimes it’s just your gut. I don’t know how to answer that question. I know Will (Demps) was hollering at me that I should challenge it. It’s just your gut whether you do it or not. So it’s just a mistake not to do it. I wish I would have done it.”
(on why you drop DE Mario Williams into coverage)
Quote:
“Well, anytime you have a zone dog package, or you have a package for players, you can’t be 100 percent consistent just doing it one way. You have to show sometimes that you’ll be able to things more than one way. If he was always a rusher and Anthony (Weaver) was always your dropper or something, you get very predictable as a defense. So I think it actually helped us in the second half, as we went through the second half, to be more unpredictable.”
(on the red zone problems)

Quote:
“First off, to get six trips down there, that’s a good thing. You like to get down there that much, but we weren’t very effective. We didn’t execute very well in the first half. In my opinion, we left 28 points out there in the first half not finishing off drives. Then in the second half, we give them the ball back on the 10, 11 and the one (yard lines). So that’s three times your ineffective down there. But when you don’t come away with points, it’s tough to win in this league.”

(on what he’s not happy about with the red zone offense after looking at film)

Quote:
“Well, just not finishing. You have to find a way to score points down there. You have to find a way to score sevens. We had a drop down there; we had a busted play on a second down. I want to say a second-and-10 on the second drive. We had a totally busted play that we had worked on all week, and we busted it. You know, we had a third-down play where we had exactly what we wanted, exact defense, with two guys wide open and we don’t hold up to get the ball. I probably threw it too much in the second half in the re dzone, probably should have ran it more down there. But regardless, the bottom line is we didn’t finish down there.”
(on what he can tell fans who are down about the losses)
Quote:
“Well, first off I’d tell them that we’re down, too. We’re disappointed in how we played. To me, yesterday, we’re in the football game all the way until the end. I mean, if we make one play in the third quarter, or fourth quarter, we’re right in that football game until the very end. So, we’re disappointed. We expect to play a lot better. We played two good football teams. We’re not playing very well right now. But we’re going to keep working and figure this out and play better football. We have another tough challenge this week.”


I would also like to give Dreesen props on his block on Vanden Bosch early in the game, he rang his bell, too bad we needed more of it.


I still love my Texans!

"...we're still evaluating..." = "I won't admit Matt Schaub can't hack it."

Kubiak has a hard head. Too many layers for the truth to penetrate quickly enough.

"Yeah, nothing's changed..." LOL. You can say THAT again.

Sheesh. Why didn't you apply for the A&M job, Gary?

We expect to be one or two plays away from being right back in the game...instead of dominating our opponent.

We expect to continue to "evaluate," instead of ACTING ON A HUNCH.

I didn't think Gary Kubiak's era as Texans HC was going to end up being one big coach-speak session after another. Heck, Gary, just get a cardboard cutout and tape a recorded message to play during the pressers.

"The field was good."

"We battled hard."

"Of course we're disappointed about the loss."

"We just got to keep evaluating..."

I expect him to say I'm going to start Sage this week.

I'm sick of it all I'm selling my tickets for the Colts game and as long as Matt is our starting qb or he becomes a NFL qb. I was going to put them up for sale yesterday, but I decided to wait the 24 hours to cool off. No changes by the team and no changes on selling my tickets.

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

I watched the Broncos play yesterday and wished that we had that FO and staff. The results may not be there for us just yet, but the execution does not look/feel remotely close to Shanahan. We got the Benny Hill Show on offense and Cheez Wiz on defense.

Sometimes a quick break is the best thing for a player. We do it for other positions, and we have one of the best back up QBs in the game. If Schaub gets rattled early take him out and get him settled down, give him new perspective, keep your back up fresh, have a conversation about tactics rather than why did you do that or what happened, blah blah blah.

Mario dropping back into coverage is only a good thing for the opponent. I just remember thinking that our staff is reaching right now by trying to be cute on both sides of the ball. This is the NFL and anything can happen, but I would not be surprised if the locker room is close to being lost if changes are not made.

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

This is from the team quotes, not on the website (don't have a link):

Owen Daniels:
Quote:
(on about the fans maybe talking about a quarterback controversy) “Yeah. I think everyone who I have spoken to, I guess, media-wise has mentioned it. I guess that’s expected in, I guess, the situation where (QB) Matt (Schaub) hasn’t played up to his ability. I think he’d be the first one to tell you that. That’s our guy. That’s all we really have to say about it. He’s going to play a lot better. We’re going to protect better for him and we’ve got to get him to get a win this week.”
Chester Pitts:
Quote:
(on what is happening along the offensive line that is making QB Matt Schaub hurry) “Bad technique. Honestly, that’s the easy way to sum it up. It’s definitely not want to or definitely not fight. It’s just finishing a little bit longer, being in better position; working together better as a unit.”

(on if the situation is better than it looks) “You know, I wouldn’t say it’s better than it looks. Well, I guess you could say it’s better than it looks to the layperson, yes. But for us, we knew, I mean in the middle of a play I know if I take a bad step, I know the moment I did it, ‘dang I wish I could pull that back.’ I just feel like it’s one of those things its just such small little details that if it goes this way, that way, it won’t be a problem. But it just hasn’t teetered our way.”

(on if they are braced for a clamoring for a QB change) “Not really. The people that are doing all the clamoring tend to not know football as well as the people that are making those decision. I don’t want to be rude or anything but the guys at home watching TV. need to stay at home watching TV and let the guys who know what they are doing do their jobs.”

(on if things like that come with the territory) “Absolutely. When anything goes wrong; if a running back fumbles twice, ‘oh, we need to get a new running back.’ If a linemen misses two blocks in a game, it’s ‘oh, we need to get his butt out of here and get someone better.’ But if you score two touchdowns, ‘oh, he’s great,’ but he could have missed three pass blocks in the game. What is it? Perception versus reality. There is no controversy and (QB) Matt’s (Schaub) going to be fine. The biggest thing I do is look at the mirror at myself and see what I can do to help Matt.”
I wonder what Pitts would say if he intended to be rude.

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

I wouldn't beg for a RB to get fired or benched for a few fumbles.

I wouldn't beg for an OL to get fired or benched for a few missed blocks.

Pitts is off the mark with those comments, IMO. I think the OL has played well enough to afford a QB some time to throw the ball, and it started back in 2007. I understand he's trying to run interference for Matt Schaub, and that's nice and all, but I am not buying it. Not even for $1.

But I WILL beg for a QB change, even for a game, just to see if the change makes the team play better.

Why is this so damn hard to understand? I mean, it's like the mere thought of telling a grown man (Schaub) that he needs a breather is soooo out of line. People need to swallow some freaking pride for the POSSIBLE betterment of the t-e-a-m.

This shows how truly screwed up this team has become over the years.

Simply and utterly amazing.

LOL. Gee whiz...

Exactly what I am trying to say. Thank you for summing it up.

Capers had the word "execute," and Kubiak's is "evaluate."

So much evaluation, so little REAL progress from it.

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

I like what Pitts said. I also believe its the truth, but I'm sure alot of people around here will take offense because of his comment on TV-guys. For one I appreciate Pitts comments much more than Kubiaks, from Kubiak (all HCs in general) I expect alot of blah blah execute-talk, but usually the players talk about the stuff they themselves see. For me that brings a more nuanced picture of what is going on.

Pitts is right, its all about perception. If you expect Kubiak to be vague and non-concrete, well then chances are that thats exactly what you'll pick up

But hey, thats just me, a #69 fan

This is funny. The team has been brainwashed, or they all just have each others back when it comes to stuff like this.

Matt Schaub through 2 games is 42/70 for 390 yards, 1TD, 5 INTS, 8 sacks, 3 fumbles and 1 rushing TD.

So what Pitts meant to say is that if a running back fumbles twice, or a QB throws 5 interceptions, fumbles 3 times and is sacked 8 times the fans need to shut up and let football people make football decisions.

Thanks Chester.

Bottom line is yes, we have played 2 tough defenses, but that doesn't mean our team should look incompetent. Ineffective. I assume that the Texans are going to stick with Schaub to see what he can do against the Jags. And if he falters, then what? "Well we went against 3 top defenses"

You cant keep making excuses for players. We are an NFL football team too. Why cant we be hearing from our opponents how their team did so bad, and "well, the Texans are a top offense, or top defense." It always seems to be the other way arround.

I expect him to say, "Well, first off, Richard Smith sux. Then, there's the non-audible into a run play up the middle right into a 9 man front. Sometimes, I have to play Faggins, and we all know that ain't gonna work. Slaton is our only RB, like you didn't know that. Weaver is a stand up and stay put machine. Greenwood does make a lot of tackles on those 12 yard runs against us, though. I like to go for it on 4th and too freaking long....A LOT. That kind of makes me look stupid, but whatever. Anyway, then there's the biggest problem right now, which is that we have at least one inside linemen on both sides of the ball who is playing at a position they are too small for, or at least too weak. But, hey, at least our QB isn't pouting on the sidelines....well, not yet anyway. Thank you for your support."

Actually, the honeymoon is definitely over between Kubiak and Schaub. Did you see the shot of them jawing at each other?

I remember the Carolina game, when Schaub threw to AJ in the end zone an he was triple covered...Schaub ran to the sideline and told Kubiak "I won't do that again..." I laughed because it's like, 'What? Yes you will. You're acting like you can just say 'I won't do it again' and it'll just come true."

The San Diego game, for me, was the sign that Matt Schaub is not going to make it as a starter in this league. He had two back-to-back possessions of throwin ginto questionable coverage, with the same result. And then he got creamed from the blinside on the second interception because he forgot that he's not jsut watching the game like the fans are in the stands...he's a live body, and the defender nailed him for not paying attention.

Kubiak is losing it. But at least he seems to have MAYBE found a decent RB, for a change. That's a positive for him right now.

EDIT: Kubiak is losing it, IF he thinks we buy his pressers and his coach-speak. This isn't Pop Warner anymore, the parents don't care about "trying hard" or "evaluating to see what we can do better" etc.

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

I think we need to at least have a home game under our belt and to have a normal week of practice before calling for Kubiak to be fired or a QB change. The start of the schedule was tough to begin with and our first home game was pushed back because of Hurricane Ike. We should have played our first game at home already and sometimes that helps you get jump started when you get some good ol' home cooking. We were dealt a bad hand so Kubiak and Co. are trying not to fold only 2 games into the season.

Sure, I'm married to the guy. I mean I gave up what 2 high picks for this loser. You think I am going to dump him now and make me look like a fool? I mean I couldn't be tighter with the guy if I were wearing his used jock. Oh what's that, you don't see a panty line?

on if they have the technology to rewind and watch replays before challenging a play)

Quote:
Technology shemcology. I was channeling my inner Dom Capers on that play. Didn't you see my clueless Capers look as the Titans ran down the field looking like the invasion of Normandy. I mean, I much prefer to challenge plays that don't have a snowballs chance in hell of being overturned.

(on how tough it is to trust a player when they say to challenge a play)

Quote:
I mean I know Demps is one of the smartest vets we have around here, but hey when I am channeling Capers I prefer to get into my inner zen and I block out all of those lousy distractions like vets screaming at me to throw the flag. The good news is I am now one with myself.
(on why you drop DE Mario Williams into coverage)

Quote:
Because all teams take their best defensive player and best pass rusher and have him running around chasing WR's and TE's in coverage. Duh.

(on the red zone problems)

Quote:
Red zone? I love that drink. You got any?

(on what he’s not happy about with the red zone offense after looking at film)

Quote:
Film? It was a great film. I loved the part where they went into the wookie bar. That cracked me up. And chewbacca. What a riot!

(on what he can tell fans who are down about the losses)

Quote:
It's only been 7 years. For goodness sakes, Rome wasn't built in a day. I am preaching patience. I'm sure by the year 2525, we'll give a winner to this city. Patience people!

Cool Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

1. Don't be friggin' "disappointed" like Ohio State lately. Be pissed. Be angry. Be fired up! Kubes and Jim Tressel both are "players coaches," recruit guys who "do the right thing," etc. Down side? After so long, the players seem to absorb the coaches attitude. Someone step up and get angry and a little dirty.

2. If the Texans didn't have replay access in TN then something is really wrong with the NFL rules or in TN and I would be making a huge stink.

So GP, when Sage throws a few interceptions and they lose are you then going to say, "well it is the same as Schaub." Your obsession has been going a long time now. I'm not happy with Schaub at this time. But I'm also not happy with 99% of the other guys who aren't doing their job. I give him another start and see if the team and he as a whole improve. I'd throw out stats from last year but you ignored them then too.

I'm just over the same stuff and the same play and the same reactions.
