Yeah. He's lost the players already, and it seems like someone else is taking over behind the scenes. The FO is doing him a favor by letting him save face and resign, most likely.

They might as well. It's better than rushing Weaver and TJ.

I wish he was fired right now.

But it probably won't be until the end of the season.

I chose D, he'll stand tall with Kubiak until they both sink, but I think C and D will end up being the same answer.

After the Texans are out of the playoff picture? At what point of the season were the Texans in the playoff picture?

Kubiak has already said he's not firing anyone during the season. So has McNair. The only question is whether Smith, Kubiak, and the rest of the staff are flushed or if Smith's blood is enough. I don't think booting Smith will be enough, and McNair will need to axe Kubiak to satisfy the fanbase. I guess we'll have to wait another 6 weeks or so to find out.

Our secondary got burned big time on some of those "non-rush" plays. When you have a Keystone cops routine with 4 covers and your scheme is as much the problem as your personel, putting 5 extra bodies out there (many of which have NO coverage skills) with the offense getting 3 times the time to find their receivers...or run through a non-existent line, it only intensifies the scheme flaws for the bolstered Keystone force.

Stop with the gimmicks already, TRY TO DEVELOP A TEAM!

This sounds reasonable, at least to me. But the short history of the Texans says it'll be at the end of the season.

As far as I am concerned though, the sooner the better. Let Bush take over and see what, if anything, he can do to improve the mess that is our defense.

I agree with the Bush takeover plan. But it makes me cringe anymore when I hear anyone referring to our short history hanging on to the implied excuses of a young expansion team. Let's stop kidding ourselves. We are no longer an expansion team, we are no longer a young team........we are an AGING team with ever-turning over younger players getting older while the powers that be hold us back. A short history?..........I don't think so. We have a long enough history to accurately predict a gloomy future........if adequate leadership is not demanded.

I said after the season - I wish it were yesterday.

It is possible, perhaps, if our defense is run over yet again this week - and I see no reason why it shouldn't be - just maybe someone will get angry enough to throw smith out. Among all of the other things this team needs - a major temper tantrum by McNair could be a very good thing.
