Actually, this is a great point. Our offense was also better last year. What went wrong? Kubiak mistake after Kubiak mistake. Kris Brown and refusing to replace him. Chris Brown and continuing to give him the ball. Those two players lost at least 3 games for us and it is 100% on Kubiak, not on the offense or the defense. Kubiak finds ways to lose even when the O and the D are running on all cylinders.

Does the head coach have zero input on defensive strategy, player selection, coaching technique? He's completely obsolved of all responsibility in regards to the defense?

You're not the only one who sees it that way. Coach Teflon has a lot of fans fooled.

Definitely, I know that in every company I've worked, once you hire someone you're absolved of all responsibilities for how well they do their job. Once they're hired, as their manager, their performance doesn't reflect on you at all, and you are given unlimited chances to hire people who suck at their job.

sure Kubiak takes the blame being he is the head coach, I don't deny that and if Bush had a problem with some coaches under him then that should have been addressed 2 years ago when he took over full time or not take the position if he felt he couldn't do what he needed to do.

“Right now, everybody’s at a loss for words and probably a loss of ideas in trying to figure out what needs to be done and get it on the right track,” defensive end Antonio Smith said Monday.

Quote:
Coach Gary Kubiak said defensive coordinator Frank Bush will continue to make the calls. Kubiak was asked about senior defensive assistant Ray Rhodes, who won five Super Bowl rings as a defensive coach and was regarded as one of the league’s best coordinators.

“Frank will call the defense,” Kubiak said. “Ray’s been sitting about six inches from him (in the coaches’ booth) for the last two years. Ray’s a part of what we’re doing. They’re all in it together. We’ve got to figure out a way to do better, but we won’t change who’s calling (the defense).”

I wouldn't say we were running on all cylinders. We couldn't run the ball for squat, we couldn't score in the red zone, & we couldn't pick up 3rd & 1.

But your overall point is correct. How in the world, can we have a top 5 offense, the year's best QB, best receiver, a top 10 rushing defense (13th overall) & win only 9 games?

Then there were 4 teams in the AFC that finished 9-7 in 2009. The Pittsburgh Steelers, The New York Jets, The Baltimore Ravens, & yes the Houston Texans.

The Steelers & Ravens are 11-4, one of those teams will win their division, they've both clinched a play-off spot. The Jets are 10-5 & clinched a Wild-Card berth. The Texans are 5-10.... last place in the AFC South.

At the end of last season, I thought GK did such a good job assembling this team, that any coach could have came in here & get us to double digit wins. Even with injuries, even against our schedule, because I knew not all the teams on our schedule would be as good as they were in 2009, because I knew those teams would have to deal with injuries as well. I never thought we would lose to teams like the Cowboys (who were in disarray when we played them), the Giants (who were in disarray when we played them), the Colts & the Chargers (who were injury stricken when we played them) & Denver starting a rookie QB for the first time.

The team is good enough, there's no doubt in my mind about that. You don't come from behind, 24+ deficits erased, against the teams we did just that against, with guys we picked up off the street in some cases..... if the team isn't any good. You can't do it if the coaches aren't any good either, but if your coaches were worth their salt, you'd never have gotten in those situations to begin with, at least not as frequently....

I can't for the life of me think of a reason for McNair to bring Kubiak back for another season. Not one.

So I refuse to believe the rumors.

look I am not saying Kubiak is free from any criticism because he is the one steering this ship and yes Bush was his boy that he picked and it turned out bad.

so come on monday and lets see what happens

if you pull these stats up, as good as our offense is (key word is good and not great) the defense is one upping it by being just a bit worse in every stat and we are negative 2 in the turnover department

Default Re: Bob, you Clown- Texans Were Ranked 13th in Total Defense in 2009!

i dont know what to say to anyone who thinks last yrs offence was better cos they obviously dont really get football. yes the passing game was a little more fluent & prob more prolific yds wise last yr, esp pre-OD's injury. but in terms of what a real quality offence is- balance wise, turnover wise and RZ wise it doesnt compare to this yrs model

yes this yrs offence starts slower for whatever reason but overall theres no comparison.

its pretty simple to show what cost us the playoffs last yr- RZ offence (esp running backs & oline) , turnovers (running backs) & kicker. never every game we lost can be traced to those problems. they were fixed for the most part this yr.

hopefully they can fix the secondary next yr. if they do & theres some new problem that causes us the playoffs then its pretty obvious kubiak will be gone

Well, the point is that he doesn't get the blame. The coordinators get the axe, and Coach Teflon keeps his job and gets extensions. The guy is a defensive coordinator killer.

Beware, Wade. When Coach Teflon says it's on him, he really means it's on you.

Ray Rhodes, I hope you're renting. I don't think you're part of the next re-organization.

There is certainly a valid argument in there somewhere. However, last year's offense was certainly not better than the one this year. Last year we couldn't run the ball at all. This season, we have an excellent running game. I also think we are scoring more points, committing fewer turnovers, and doing against a tougher schedule.

I agree that the ideal thing to happen this off-season is for Kubiak to be replaced by an elite coach. However, I think your perspective is a bit skewed. The '09 Texans had the same record as the '09 Jets, and the only reason Kubiak's team was not in the playoffs and Rex's team was in the playoffs was the fortunate way the schedule fell in place for the Jets, with two gimme games finishing their season against teams with nothing to play for.

This is the same crap we hear every year from Kubiak defenders. The guy should have been fired already. Next year the excuses will start again. Too many fans in Houston accept mediocrity as the norm.



Look at this qoute from the comical:

“Frank will call the defense,” Kubiak said. “Ray’s been sitting about six inches from him (in the coaches’ booth) for the last two years. Ray’s a part of what we’re doing. They’re all in it together. We’ve got to figure out a way to do better, but we won’t change who’s calling (the defense).”



Kubiak throws Ray Rhodes under the bus here along with Bush and steps back like he had nothing to do with the whole mess. Then in the very next sentence Kubiak inserts himself as helping to solve the problem.

Am I crazy or if we had beaten the Jets when we played them then we may have been the team to make the playoffs? We just got outplayed/outcoached when it counted, as usual. The Jets may have had a softer schedule that you point out, but they beat those teams when they needed to. Broken down teams roll in here and look rejuvenated for 4 quarters.

By the same token Dale the Texans got a gimme from the Patriots. I guarantee you if the Patriots would have needed to win that game they would have.

handy how you missed that line isnt it?

its amazing the selective vision the kubiak detractors are suffering from these days.... keep pouncing on every tiny mis-speak by him though. way to keep the big picture in focus. he gave bush & rhodes all the credit when the D had their big turnaround last yr. better ignore that too
