Default Grade Kubiak on the Redskins Game

I give him a C. Would have been a D if we lost.

Played not to lose. Got lucky on the freezing the FG kicker.

What say you?

We came from 17 points down to win our first ever OT game.

His players making bonehead plays most of the first half put them in a bad position. Fortunately he coached 'em up and got the ship back on course for the VICTORY!!!!

well then how did you feel about the conservative play calling at the end of the regulation?

and also going for the punt on the first drive in OT?

Default Re: Grade Kubiak on the Redskins Game

A+ without a doubt. And I'm a pink soaper from last year. This team didn't quit on him, and they've proved to me at least, they aren't the same old Texans.
Rackers had already missed that 47 yard field goal, he had also passed kidney stones earlier in the week. It wasn't Kubiak not showing confidence in him, it was recognizing he wasn't going to make that 52 yard kick, and he would have given the Redskins a short field. He placed trust in his defense, and I believe earned the entire teams respect.

Not trying the 51 yarder was the right call. I don't think Rackers had 51 in him today. The Washington kicker missed his and gave the Texans a short field.

I give Kubiak the very highest grade. "W". Because winning is the only thing that matters.

Default Re: Grade Kubiak on the Redskins Game

I give Kubiak a B+. The players overcame some huge gaffes by Kubes that could've
cost them the game. Yet, I saw him watching kicks and instructing his
special teams squad how to handle the snap at the end of regulation.

It's the second-best coached game I've seen from Kubiak. Let's make Sunday
the third.

A+ for the win. That was easily the most epic game the Texans have ever played.

Then you FAKE it. Or you GO FOR IT.

Punting is the worst possible decision there. BY FAR.

Grade for Kubiak today is a D. Would have been an F------ if we'd lost. Players won this game.

Rackers didn't have a 54-55 yd FG in him. He'd already missed from 47.

An OT win on the road from 17 down is good, especially considering Rosenfels was nowhere near FedEx Field.

I can criticize him, but I don't know if Rackers could make a long field goal.

Riiiight... and if they had failed on the fake or the fourth down attempt??

And when you get right down to it, the players have to win every game.

...or lose it.

Wonder what the 'Skins fans are doing?

Isn't that the players making specials plays, like AJ catching the jumpball or Pollard blocking the FG?

The end of regulation playcalling is still sticking in my mind, not very aggressive.
