Default If they fire Kubiak they might regress...

What were the other reasons for keeping him?

5-10. Tied with Detroit and Cleveland

5-10. Behind St. Louis, Washington, Tennessee.

5-10. Denver and Buffalo breathing down their necks.

Heady company.

And they should have beaten the Bears early in the game, since the "rules" took away a TD catch from CJ which was an obvious catch in principle.

And the Lions have led in all but one game this year, I think.

The Lions are turning the corner much faster than the Texans. In fact, the Texans are moving in reverse. 1-8 since starting 4-2? Kubes has to go, as does the DC.

...but we could be 2-14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm so happy that people think our record is somehow better. Maybe the record appears better on the surface, but this team has issues this record does not fully reflect. Without drastic changes we are destined for more of the same.

Default Re: If they fire Kubiak they might regress...

Let's not forget that Detroit was so bad a couple of years ago that they won zero games. They had to totally rebuild from nothing.

And, Cleveland and Washington have relatively new coaches, too. And, trust me, Eric Mangini is not considered a good coach by a lot of people.

Not sure what else to say here.

Detroit had Barry Sanders twenty years ago. That isn't a fair comparison.

How could we get worse? A team of untrained monkeys could beat us blindfolded with their arms tied behind their backs.

Bills, Bengals, Broncos, and Panthers are the only teams with W/L records worse than the Texans.

The right track. The right way. What does right mean again?

the lions show what a few good high picks/elite players can do for you. thankfully we're well on our way to get one of those for our secondary. plus a lat place sched. at least we're setting ourselves up nicely for next yr instead of the usual useless end of yr pride victories

For his own good Frank Bush should be placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program.

Give him a job akin to his qualifications. Make him the "Night Grocery Stocker" at the Walmart Supercenter in Juneau, Alaska.

Your statement is correct. Unfortunately, when has rational reason, logic and common sense had any bearing on decisions by the Texans?

This IS a fair comparison. What does 20 years ago have to do with the fact that they've been a terrible team the last 5 years?

Unfortunately, once again we are a year too late. There is no Eric Berry or Earl Thomas in this draft.
