Default The National Speculation Begins

John Clayton tosses Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden and Jeff Fisher's names out there after the disappointing loss to the Raiders.
Quote:
Here are five things I learned from Week 5:

1. Troubling losses for coaches: Once again, the Houston Texans and Gary Kubiak came up short in a close game, this time against the Raiders. Losing close games has been a staple of the Texans under Kubiak. Starting last November, the Texans finished a disappointing 6-10 season by losing five games that were decided by seven points or fewer. They blew a nine-point lead earlier this year in New Orleans, and Sunday's loss to the Raiders was even more frustrating. During Kubiak's coaching career, the Texans are 20-24 in close games.

The Texans jumped to a 14-6 lead by the second quarter, but the offense went cold late in the first half. Things started falling apart when QB Matt Schaub had a second-and-1 at the Raiders' 37-yard line, managed only two incompletions and Houston ended up punting and getting no points. The Texans followed with three worthless possessions in their own territory, giving the Raiders a chance to come back.

Wade Phillips came in as defensive coordinator and has shaved 7.7 points a game off what Houston's defense allowed last year. But what's amazing is that the Texans, considered the AFC South's front-runner with the Colts' Peyton Manning not playing, have been outscored 24-6 in the third quarter this season. If the Texans lose the division to the Tennessee Titans, owner Bob McNair might be tempted to bring in Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden or Jeff Fisher next year.

Wow, that didn't take long. I wonder if they see this three game losing streak we're working on & think better of McNair to live through that again without doing something.

No AJ , No MW .... a game dominated by the Raiders DL .... and the Texans were a missed FG by Rackers away from winning 26-25 instead of losing 25-20 ..... but lets blame Kubiak.

Losing to the Raiders at home...something playoff teams really shouldn't do. probably

The Packers seemed to do OK last year after missing key players. I'm not calling this team the Packers, but I didn't see those guys making any excuses. All they did was step up and win.

That's it, it's over pack it in boys. The fat lady has sung its all over five games in to the season. We've lost to a top five team in the Saints, and an up and coming inspired team, wow we outta just give up now.


This is F-ing B*llsh*t, we are five games in to the season, if the season were over right now with our winning percentage we'd be 10 and 6, so until we are 5 and 7 I'm not gonna panic.

COME ON MAN!!! These pundits are douche nozzles.

The coaching change speculation goes hand in hand with the playoff speculation. Each year we are picked to make the playoffs, and each year we are expected to make a coaching. Just the media being the media. Picking both sides so they can be right 100% and say I told you so.

You're right...lets re-sign him to a life long contract. After all when you're a head coach in the national football league who in their right mind actually cares about on the field results. Nothing is ever his fault.

This goes beyond the Raiders game, it's his knack that no matter what happens with this team, they always find a way to lose games instead of finding ways to win them and in this league you're judged by wins only. Fair or not. Injuries aren't a excuse for him.

I can't wait for Cowher to show up here. I give it about a season and a half before you guys claim you never wanted him.

At least at that point we won't further suffer the Cowher cult of personality as he will be brutally exposed without a world class GM like he had in Pitt.

Why do fans want McNair to hold onto Kubiak so bad? So many teams in the NFL have changed regimes and have had much more success than Kubiak can ever dream of. The team is the same as always. Raiders game showed a lot.
