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.
Kinda like
Kubiak= Pardee ( nice guys)- sometimes winners
Parcells= Cowher (tough guys)- always winners

Default Re: Kubiak Presser Quotes

+ rep to pitts for saying that.. its so true and he worded it very well

as for the team, we gave as good as we got for much of the game against a very good team on the road. we'll be alright when its all said and done. 'growing pains' are so much easier to go through on paper, eh?

anyway sorry for interrupting gp's and porky childish rants.. continue on

Chester Pitts:

Quote:
(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.”
Isn't this what we've been doing for how many years??................and the results?? Seems like some of the players and coaches would more appropriately stay at home watching TV and let the guys that know what they are doing do their jobs.

“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.”
this quote is mindboggling. Weaver can't get a sack in a grocery store but Williams will drop into coverage with Weaver leading the edge rush because of our desire to be tricky and unpredictable? We drop our only viable pass rusher into coverage? Good grief

Default Sarcasm alert

What team is scared of Mario Williams in coverage?! Seriously?!?! Is it me, is it the hippie lettuce, am I looney-tunes here?!? No offensive coordinator is sitting back in meetings saying "I sure hope they don't drop Mario into coverage, because we have absolutely nothing to counter that play".

Oh wait, I forgot, Chester reminded me to "let the guys who know what they are doing do their jobs", like dropping a premier PASS RUSHER into covering WRs. Oh silly me, how dumb am I?

"What is it? Perception versus reality" says Chester.

I see, our perception is that it's the same old crap year after year. But that's not the reality! The reality is that we are a GREAT team that just happens to be playing lousy football and losing games. Dang, if only I could...change...that...dern...perception. Maybe I need rabbit ears. My perception has snow on the screen.

[/sarcasm]

Honestly, Richard Smith's defensive mind is garbage, IMHO. But, then again, he's one of the "guys who know what they are doing", and I'm just a dumb ol' one of the "guys at home watching TV".

But Chester did remind me "to stay at home watching TV". For home games, too, Mr. Pitts?

[/more sarcasm]

Honestly, TC, I'm in need of a good old coaching meltdown worthy of a Bud Lite commercial. I want to see Kubiak angry that so much of his hard work and dedication to this team is being pissed down the drain. I want to see him so beyond himself that his head looks like it's going to explode into a mushroom cloud of brain matter onto the waiting press.

Obviously, it's not his style. So I don't expect it to ever happen.

But emotion is my point. They are acting way to business-like about losing. Pitts basically telling the fanbase to STFU, Kubiak doing his coachspeak thing. The team circling the wagons like water twirling down a drain. I just want to see someone, anyone, with this team just get up and scream at being a team that just can't get it together.

But that wouldn't be the niiiiice thing to do. Hey marshmallows! Let's sing kum-by-yah now. Ahh, that blanket is sooooo soft. Warm and fuzzies.

I'm just venting. Don't pay me any attention. No need to flame me, folks. I'm with this team until the End of Days. My passion is not always a positive thing in the face of insanity.

Unpredictable? you want unpredictable? Wait till you see the new zone caveman package next week. You bring the Geico caveman to the line, have him grunt a few times to scare the line, then (and here is the unpredicatble part) you ease him back in coverage, and when the receiver catches the ball, he clubs him, puts him on the spit and grills him for BBQ. Problem solved.

LMAO, must spread the rep.......it seems that the emotion of anger will be generated only when seats are unfilled and revenues are affected. How many coaches have left the Texans to be successful elsewhere (on the field), except at a lower level of employment. Kubiak's et al. football reputation may be tainted for good.............that in itself should be reason to get angry.

Here was Kubiak at the beginning of our 1st season. The only fire I ever saw........and always directed to referees. The only other shots I've tended to see have been of Kubiak walking around nervous or seemingly on the verge of crying.

This sounds familiar.......................
http://www.profootballtalk.com/category/rumor-mill/
Scheme, personnel and approach,” Marinelli said regarding areas in which changes could be made. “We have just a great opportunity for us [to] sit down and really do a nice job of looking at it.”

Marinelli said it’s not the low point of his coaching career, and that the goal is to stay the course. “What I’m about, I keep doing it,” Marinelli said. “Keep working at it and keep evaluating, keep working, coaching.”



We are so boned.

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.
You know what, I just deleted my original post (which was aimed squarely at you).

Because, honestly, it won't matter or make any difference.

So I'll respond to those who are wondering if this season is going to lead somewhere promising.

All I can say is this: The bloom is off the Kubiak rose. And the petal known as Schaub is just one part of the wilting process. I just want to see Kubiak make the decisions that give us the best chance to win, and Schaub isn't a part of those plans BUT he's right there front-and-center. Richard Smith isn't "it" at DC, there's another petal. The ZBS has undersized linemen who are getting obliterated off the snap, there's another petal. Kubiak's game management is another petal.

AJ is dogging it, not even giving a crap anymore. He knows a withering flower when he sees one.

So, I don't need to respond to you. People are beginning to figure out that this idea of "waiting" and "evaluating" and "looking at stats that show why Schaub is better than Sage" is a crock of dookie.

I was thinking about this point last night. Does the home team get extra electronics that are not available to the visiting team at some stadiums? Or, does the league enforce 'parity' in the coordinators' booths?

And, if there is a disparity to make it part of a "homefield advantage", what are the visiting team's booth at Reliant like? Knowing McNair, they are probably all decked out with HD monitors.

I know it is up to the home team to show replays and stuff. But I'm just curious about the accommodations given to our coaches.

Don't know the answer to your question--I would have thought there were rules on minimum equipment packages.

What is amazing about that reception IMO though is that ref blew the call not once, but two times--blatant offensive interference and then blatant out of bounds. It didn't so obviously change a game as the Hochuli blown call, but it arguably was a worse job by a ref and there is no discussion about it. In fact, the play has made several highlight reels as a good play.

I don't have power, so I have been out of the loop on NFL news and replays. Maybe that's a good thing after reading this...

Yeah, I highlighted that quote in my Chron.com post about the defense and said this about it:

Quote:
Hmmm. So you take your only real pass rusher, and you drop him back in coverage. Yeah, that's unpredictable.

It reminds me of this time I was playing pickup basketball with a bunch of guys. I rarely shoot because I am no good. But I thought the lane was open for a second, so I'm driving for a shot and see a 6'4" defender slip right in front of the basket. And realize I am in big need-a-bail-out trouble. At the last second, the tall guy decides to be gallant, and steps to the side with an elaborate bow and pantomimed hat tip.

It was so surprising and funny that I started laughing and totally whiffed the wide open layup.

You see, maybe that was Smith's strategy. To come up with such an absurd package that maybe Kerry Collins would goof up because he was laughing so hard.

Me personally, I could go the whole rest of my life without seeing Williams dropping into coverage.

I appreciate that they are trying something, I guess. The entire defense has been a 2+ year experiment of trying to find schemes that do anything other than leaving the Texans at the bottom of the league defensively.

What I do know is that if the Titans can hang 21 points and 225 yards in the first half on the Texans, then Houston is in trouble when they face a real offense.

In the second half, the Texans hardly missed a tackle, holding the Titans to 88 yards of total offense and a field goal. Houston also got creative. Defensive coordinator Richard Smith lined up defensive end Mario Williams next to DeMeco Ryans at linebacker. Williams was able to harass Collins in the second half and drop into pass protection to keep Tennessee's offense honest.

“I thought our spinner package in the second half caused them some problems and made them get rid of the ball,” Kubiak said. “And, as always, just causing havoc and making the quarterback make a quick decision is as important as walking out of the game with sacks.”

I don't understand folks being upset with the defense trying to get creative...The complaint is that we're too bland and then when we do something different and the results are seemingly positive we gripe anyway...

Yeah Mario is our best pass rusher...He's also our best overall player over there...

I have no problem with them using him in a variation of ways as long as it's effective...
