I have to say this: Bengals have 15 other games of film on us.

Today would not factor one way or another.

I wonder if Wade stays in booth next week, or goes sideline?

Sure.

But he's getting a new contract, so you know it will be a good, long contract.

Anybody thinking there's some sort of possibility McNair goes in a different direction is fooling themselves. Everyone here knows Kubiak is getting another 4 or 5 years.

The "dynasty" comment meant McNair views this as a prudent move as it relates to creating an image and stable future for the team.

Wade Phillips is a HUGE factor, though. He's the cog in the machine that sparked this season's playoff chances.

I have mixed feelings. How can McNair even think about "going fishing" for a new HC? Wade Phillips turning the defense around was THE saving grace for GK.

That he is going to be here that long. I have wanted him gone for three years now.

Wade Phillips is to blame.

Wade should receive a white envelope from Kubiak that contains lots of cash.

Without a top defense, this team is last year's Texans. Period.

I don't want Wade as HC, either.

I know, can't please everyone :/

You don't think Kubiak and the offensive coaches deserve even the teeeeeeeeeeensiest amount of credit for coaching through Schaub/Leinart/Andre/Foster/Tate/Ward/Casey/Vickers/Hartmann/Brisel injuries?

Was this really a thread. We should risk hurting our chances to win a playoff game to try and win(what was for us) a preseason game. Now thats looking at the big picture.

Without a sound and credible d-coord in Wade Phillips, you prove my point with that post.

Plus, Wade came in on a lockout year. Worst defense the year prior. Top 3 defense his first year.

Without a great defense SYSTEM and better players, ones that Wade shopped for by the way, then I stand by my post.

It takes a team, and Wade's arrival created that TEAM. Previous years were marked by Kubiak's handling of d-coordinators. We were not a team, it was a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.

Hey, GK is the head coach. The whole show is HIS show. He gets to own this season, but he also owns all years prior too.

No reason we can't be adults and recognize that Wade Phillips' crew has by and large been the "it" factor. Wouldn't want him as HC, though.

i dont agree with that, we had a rookie in KJ and a second year CB in Quin, and then we had Wilson and Pollard at safety, say what you want but that is not a combination for success regardless of who you are. We now have Manning and JoJo which has made a dramatic difference.

You cant look at this season and not give kubiak some credit, Wade has lost Mario thats it, Kubiak has lost, Foster, Tate, Schaub, Leinart, AJ, Casey, Brisel. Now to me for us to still be 10-6 with all that has happened, despite all the offensive injuries kubiak still deserves some credit.

What kind of record do you think this team would have with the #3 ranked defense and #31 ranked offense, prob a lot worse than 10-6

GP! Wish I could rep you for your post throughout this thread, but, must spread rep first!

#1 You play a GAME to WIN!! PERIOD!! It's that simple!!

#2 Fans pay BIGASS bucks to see their team WIN, esp against a division rival with possible playoff potential.

#3 Sitting your starters is CHEATING the fans!! I paid pretty close to $700 to watch crap football today, and I didn't appreciate that one damn bit!! If you have to lose a game, then lose it honestly!!

#4 It's a GAME of football, and with that comes injuries, etc. That's just the way the game is played. Take it in the gut and keep on playin!! If you all think six days is enough to REST those guys then you are all delusional!!

We are playing with a 3rd, and probably 4th string QB!! For gawds sake!! WHY can't you guys understand they need PRACTICE with the FIRST string if we have any chance in hell of winning in the playoffs!! I simply DO NOT understand this attitude that it's OK to rest your starters!! It's a game of football, not Daddy Daycare!!!

Probably the people that are defending Kubiak for resting the starters are the same ones that were going balistic 2 years ago when teams were resting their starters during the final week that kept us on the outside with our noses pressed up against the glass.

Default Re: Why People Are Angry That We Rested Our Starters?

so we make the playoffs and people are still bitching?

i thought we said that once we started winning we wouldnt be such whiny mf'ers.

my thoughts on the game: we were back to our best today. running game killing it, qb making the throws he needs to and good pass rush. we play our starters we kill the titans like in week 7. this team had the look back and ive no doubt we win next week once we keep green in check
