Default AJ:What now, Bob?

Quote:
Few of us expected the Texans to win in New York today so the outcome of today's game really wasn't a surprise. How they got there really wasn't a surprise either if you've been watching this team for a while as I suspect you have.

That's why it's time to throw a grenade into this foxhole.

The Texans are a mess, have been for a while, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand this ship's going nowhere.

The problem is, what will the owner do about it?

The Texans issues are not just about Frank Bush or Gary Kubiak. Their issues involve everything from Rick Smith on down.

You might remember Rick Smith. He's the guy that Dunta Robinson made famous last season. He's the guy that stands with Bob and Cal McNair on the sideline during the first quarter of every Texans home game. He's our buddy system GM that McNair brought in from Denver six months after the head coach, a GM that would seem to have real trouble acting objectively when it comes to the coaching staff because of previous working relationships between Kubiak and Bush.

That aside, what matters, or should matter, to McNair are the lack of wins and the fact that the formula isn't working (again) five years in. The question is what is he going to do about it?

The Kubiak-Smith regime picked up a team that was 2-14 and returned it to respectability a couple of years ago when they finished 8-8 and in third place in the AFC South.

But since then, it's been one step forward, two steps sideways and three steps backward for a team that can't get out of its own way.

This team is just a ball bounce and a ref call here and there from being undefeated. ( never mind that it is just a ball bounce away from being winless as well.)

Our defense isn't really any worse than anybody elses. Look at the vaunted Jets defense. They gave up 27 points today. (Nevermind that this doesn't happen to them every week like it does to our defense.)

At least we aren't 2-14 anymore. ( nevermind that Capers had his Texans at 7-9 one year before that collapse. Also nevermind that the best Kubiak could do with the easiest schedule this team ever had was 9-7)

.500 ball is comforatable. Sure it ain't great, but it ain't 2-14 either. Marvin Lewis syndrome at work here.

When that Texan's Offense finally makes it to the stadium after taking that late flight, they are great. ( the capers Defense was pretty good to until He and casserly started the "youth movement" and started getting rid of all the older vets.)

Anyway, from reading all this I'm quite certain that Mcnair will want to give Kubiak a 50 yr extensin and be patient until he finally does get it right. I just want to throw -up.

This post makes me want to throw up...

Partially because I detest the message, partially because most of it is true... FML!
