Default Is Kubiaks Job on the line vs the Raiders ? King Solomon says "Yes"

The Texans host Oakland on Sunday in the most important game of Gary Kubiak's head coaching career.

No hyperbole here. That's the way it is going to be all season for the Texans' fourth-year head coach.

Kubiak is pretty much where Cecil Cooper was early in the baseball season: in a must-win situation. If his team loses Sunday, he will pretty much be in a can't-win situation.
No doubt, Kubiak's job is on the line this week.

Solomon is the biggest flip flopper this year. His articles were negative after week 1 and 3, and uber positive after week 2. Dude is a bandwagon writer. Reminds me of a common fan.

Default Re: Is Kubiaks Job on the line vs the Raiders ? King Solomon says "Yes"

I think Texans fans are in a no excuse state . This was to be the year the Texans finally made a playoff push and to see that the gap is still a mile wide is inexcusable .

If the Texans lose to the Raiders , I can see the parking lots staying full until the 2nd quarter . This means less sales on food and beer , and less give a crap . If Bob wants to avert this situation ... he's got to do something . I cannot believe that after an offseason of changes , the defense got worse ... this is talent evaluation or lack off .

Default Re: Is Kubiaks Job on the line vs the Raiders ? King Solomon says "Yes"

I don't really give 2 hoots what Jerome thinks or says since he seems to be unable to figure out what he really thinks. However, I understand his dilemma. I do agree that we have to win this game against the Raiders period. I don't care if Kubiak's job is on the line - I do care that we go into the road games 2-2 - that at least gives us a chance to make something of this season.

My hope is that the team comes out as determined to win as they were against the Titans. If they don't, it is going to be yet another very long Sunday.

Like he'll get fired if he loses this game?

No. Expectations are low right now and if he can't even meet that then I believe Kubiak's bandwagon will be less and less full until sometime after the year he gets the pink slip. We are not a group who utilizes "sudden change"

I don't think his articles (or the fans reactions to the Texans play) is a result of flip flopping, it is a reaction to the inconsistent play of the team. It should be no surprise that his articles (and the reaction of the fans) is negative when we start the season by laying an egg AT HOME or when we lost to a division rival that we should have beat, at home. Similarly, when we beat the Titans on the road, in a street fight, praise was due.

I think from here on out (unless we go on some long winning or losing streak), I think you can expect a more watered down reaction to the games.

They guy needs to quit TALKING about being consistent, and start

and was HELL-ON-WHEELS against the Titans. I'm proud of Texans fans,
and some members of the media, who refuse to kiss the teams ass when
it UNDERACHIEVES. This team has the ABILITY to be 11-5, but it's
playing like a 6-10 CHUMP!!! Keep this team's feet to the FIYAAAHHH!!

Given the history of this franchise I fully expect the Texans to make JaMarcus look like the second coming of Payton Manning. Its our history.

Sadly I have never 'expected' a win going into any game, and I still don't.

Low expectations I know, but how many games have we lost that we were 'expected' to win?

Just think about it, both of our co-ordinators and our general manager are trainees.
I have never bought into the McNair cheapskate theory, but sometimes I do wonder.

Will Detroit win more games than Houston this year? Personally, I wouldn't bet against it.

If the Texans don't make the playoffs this year I suspect McNair will clean house.

I don't see the texans fire kubiak after the game (who would they promote? baby shan?) but i think the writing would be on the wall. defensively there is no one to promote and would there be anyone out there and would we even want someone from our current system?

I think Solomon is right, if the raiders pull a win and it's another lackluster performance by us then yes I think he'll be fired.

Default Re: Is Kubiaks Job on the line vs the Raiders ? King Solomon says "Yes"

I think "Texans history", whatever that means (a jinx, bad luck, bad karma),
is a non-starter. And McNair like most owners is bascically a hands-off type as compared to the minority of owners like a Snyder in DC or a Jones in Dallas who are more active and tend to be more interventionists.
The best opportunity for success is obviously the right HC, and when somebody like a Kraft in NE or a Lurie in Philly get a good one, they're smart enough to hold on to them indefinitely. I honestly think McNair will be in that group eventually (if he lives long enough), but he may have to kiss a few more frogs before he finds the right one ?

No way he gets fired midseason. But a loss this weekend will give McNair a lot of time as to who he should target.

Years from now we will look back on this picture as Kubiak's "Jack Pardee moment".

Old Oiler fans know what I'm talking about. With Pardee it was the headset. With Larry Dierker it was the sunflower seed stuck to his bottom lip. With Rudy T. it was the disheveled hair and tie. With Dom Capers it was the gaping mouth.

And with Gary Kubiak, it's the crazy feet and Denny's menu.

All nice, upstanding men who eventually lost their teams.
