Default Kubiak: "It's time for somebody else to win the AFC South"

Selected quotes from the Texans team luncheon today:

Quote:
"It's time for somebody else to win the AFC South, and we believe we have the team that can do it," said Kubiak, who's entering his fifth season as Texans head coach.

"Expectations are high," Kubiak said. "I know they're huge around the city, everywhere I go. I know they're huge in this room. All I can tell you is, they're even higher for us. We expect – we used to talk about wanting to do things. Now, as a team, we talk about expecting to do things. And we expect to be a playoff team. That's our goal."

"But also, we know – I know as a coach, we know as coaches, our players know – that the difference between winning and losing is so small. If you're not on, you can get beat any week. But if you're on, we can beat anybody. And it's my job to make sure that we're on."
I agree with pretty much everything Kubiak said. It is time for this team to win the AFC South. And it's Kubiak's job to make that happen. There's no reason to aim low for a wildcard.

This is where he cements himself for a good 10 years here, at least, or he goats himself right out of town by the end of the season.

I always go back and forth with how I think it's going to end up for him, so I guess this season we'll just sit and watch it unfold before us.

If we hammer the Colts the first game...at home in Reliant...man, we could go on a roll with that sort of momentum. I just want to see Kubiak finally dominate his divisional foes. Wreck they asses, Gary.

Now if the players care for him as much as they say they do........they'll have their coach's back. His job is basically in their hands.

I think Oakland may be pretty damn good. Their D is going to be lights out, but Jason Cambell is NOT their savior.

Cambell may end up functioning like VY, 'manage stuff and try not to throw away the victory'-kinda stuff. If their D is indeed as nasty as it may seem, perhaps they won't NEED a MVP QB?

This Super Bowl hangover you mention, has any of those teams ever been QB'd by Peyton Manning?

To clarify, there is every chance that Houston wins this upcoming game and if they do, it will not be due to some post Super Bowl fog that the Colts are in. To me that seems like you are selling the Texans short if you are counting on something mystical like that to help them beat the Colts.

The Colts went to the Super bowl in 2006 and won, then started the 2007 season with 7 wins in a row and ended 13-3 on the season. So yeah, if anything is wrong with the Colts it will be issues with their preparedness, not some mystical football hangover.

Kubiak's statements are very significant, given the fact that he's never made them in previous seasons. In fact, up until now, he was saying, always in response to questions, that he believed that they were "a draft or two" away from making the playoffs.

I know in the previous two seasons, fans and sports columnists alike "expected" the team to make the playoffs.

But this year, HE expects it.

Cue the Colts fan in 3...2...1........

Thanks for letting us know. Be sure to stop by over the next 3-5 years when your team is no longer the ruler of the AFC South.

You do know that these things are cyclical, in terms of a team being dominant for a period of many years and then eventually fading into the background.

Every year, Manning gets a year older. The body gets worn down from the previous season. Tick, tock.....
