I'm at work and can't watch the video but from the posts I can imagine that it's the same old sunshine Gary has been pumping up our ass the last few years. He needs to shut up and let his team do the talking on the field. Talk is cheap until you have to back it up.

I agree with Trap Star, F Kubiak.

I agree with Trap Star, F Kubiak.
What do you EXPECT him to do at a team luncheon, where he is EXPECTED to get up and talk??? You think he's suppose to be a negative nellie like so many posters on this board? Geeeezzz, the man has never been good at public speeches, and never will be. BUT, he did what he was suppose to do, he gave a positive speech about THIS year, not last, nor the year before! YES, talk is cheap, but, he's not the one out there on that friggin field screwin up, it's up to his players to "back it up!"

FWIW! I've never been a huge Kubiak fan, BUT, he is what he is, the HC of the Houston Texans, and as long as he is in that role, I will support him! I agree with Corrosion. No one cares more about this team than GK! I bet some of you won't be saying "F Kubiak" if he takes us to the SB!!

I went back and looked at my posts and I'm pretty sure I didn't quote any post of his or direct any comments toward TB. That being said...

I appreciate the OP posting the link to the speech at the team luncheon. I watched it. Thought it was a good speech but ultimately meaningless. There are very few people that were more vocal about firing Kubiak at the end of last season than myself. However, he wasn't fired. Not my decision. Made my opinion known, but ultimately Bob McNair really didn't care what I had to say.

Like it or not Gary Kubiak is the coach of my home town football team. Honestly, I don't know what people expected the man to say. It was his duty to give the speech. People merely commented on the speech itself and whether they liked it or not. Then others come on and call out the folks who say they liked it and start throwing F bombs. Kind of drama queenish don't ya think? We used to have a decorum in our little corner of the Internet and I am trying to help restore it. Therefore, when I see someone on here acting like a barefooted 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum in Walmart, I feel obliged to say something.

If you have ever been called into a meeting expecting to get fired but the opposite happens, it is quite a humbling experience. I know. I've been there. I'm not saying that Kubiak is humbled about keeping his job. I don't know the man and I've never met him. I'm just saying it is a possibility.

The bottom line is this. You cannot root for the Houston Texans to be successful and for the coach to fail. Their successes or failures are joined together. I'm hoping the Texans not only make the playoffs but go deep into the playoffs. Therefore, I am hoping Gary Kubiak is successful as the HC of the Houston Texans.

People need to lighten up, grow up and stop acting like chldren when others disagree with them.

That's all I got to say about that.

Not True! I think it would take Kubes winning back to back championships for some of these people to give him any credit. I know one thing about GK, He is a phenomenal Offensive Coach and the players love him. With WP on board, I betting on the Texans doing GREAT things this year! (Seriously, I think I already have $500 worth of bets on the season already.)

This. I worked this event so I had the opportunity to see it live. FWIW this is a ticketed fan event with proceeds going to charity IIRC, so it really isn't the time for him to call anyone out or put out negative vibes. It's just suppoesed to be a good time where fans (and businesses who shell out cash for entire tables) to have lunch with players.

Sorry, guys, but in last year's speech, Kubiak got up and said: "It's time for someone else to win the AFC South, and we have the talent to do it."

Or something along those lines. It was very inspirational and forceful.

The result?

6-10.

Show me.

He should have lead off with, "You ever hear about an offensive coordinator, that wanted to be a head coach, and became one?"

He got up and said that last year, everyone -- including the fans -- had high hopes and he understood that people were pissed off and why they were pissed off at the team letting them down.

It was a good, sincere speech. Not a lot of rah-rah. Not a lot of "Let me PUMP... YOU UP!"

I thought he did a good job and it's exactly that sort of sincerity that I think players respond to.
Aleast he was honest about being a failure. Hopefully he learned from his failure and wont take the consevative route with his playcalling when the Texans have a lead. Or be so afraid of Manning that he doesn't do the Moats/2 min timeout thing again.

The players responding to his sincerity thing = LOL

They haven't responded for 5yrs. Maybe this yr will be different.

I think the players have responded. I think the players play very hard for Kubiak because they like him and respect him.

But if the coaches put the players in bad positions and do stupid stuff, it doesn't matter how hard the players play. And last year, it was the defensive coaches making bad decisions and putting the players in bad positions that screwed the team. And in a team sport like this, all it takes is 1 guy screwing up to blow the whole game.

Last year, this team fought back. They lost. But they fought back. To totally disregard that and say that the team didn't respond is short sighted. If this team didn't respond to Kubiak and didn't want to play for him, this team would have been in a bunch of blowout losses last year. They would have gotten down or gotten behind and they would have stopped playing. They didn't do that.

This team battled back and showed a lot of heart. Just like they did in 2009 when they closed out the last 4 games of the season.

I know you don't like Kubiak. And I know you've wanted him gone for years... even after he went 9-7. But I think you're ignoring the facts and seeing what you want to see because of your dislike of him.
