i think 90% of this board has very unrealistic expectations regarding these UDFAs.. how many udfas come in year one and contribute to the offense/defense.. a few make the squad and pay dues through special teams involvement.. jones was just another UDFA destined for a season on the PS/IR..
I think it's the fact that the wr position is so open and the guy had draftable talent.

No big deal , just pointing out that your view on Gary is off .... He's not soft by any stretch of the imagination.

He may come off that way in the media but you close the doors and he is blunt and to the point.
You can bet his players appreciate that - they dont get embarrassed in front of the media , fans or the team .... its a one on one ass chewing.

He's not the rah rah type , he is all business.

But I imagine there's a few Kubiak haters around here who threw up in their mouths a little when they read that.

Default Re: RUMOR: Dwight Jones WR quit?

theres a video of kubiak chewing out foster in 09 at open practices.. cant remember what the video was, its not the E:60 video, it might be a NFLN story on foster.. either way i imagine the tolerance level of the UDFAs is a lot shorter than the draft picks.. kubiak yelled at foster and foster picked up the ball and got back in the drills line after kubiak told to him he can get the hell off his team if he didnt like it.. im guessing jones couldnt take it and went home..

Why is it that fans are considered haters because they think BoB/Gary/Rick didn't do a good job for the first 5 yrs of Garys tenure. I'm interested to see how the Texans perform with a much tougher schedule this yr.

BTW, I think the Texans will make the playoffs and if they catch a few breaks they should make the AFC championship game. Does that make me a hater?

No, I'm not referencing his public vs. private persona.

I'm talking about how there's not a legitimate WR except for #80. Without rehashing the back and forth we've already had on it, you know what I mean.

Think about it: If Dwight Jones had found a way to stick through camp, Kubiak would keep him around (even if it was only on PS). Dwight Jones took himself out of the equation and therefore probably detonated himself before he had a chance to take anybody else out with him.

And I bet they're still trying to find a way to get him to come back. If he comes back, there isn't a proper smilie for me to use to comment upon the hilarity of such an event.

So, in other words, you're sticking with the implication that he's a softy. Right?

Or what exactly is the point you're trying to make?

Have I missed something? Are there posters here that know Kubiak personally or have interacted with the team behind the scenes?

It's the off season Rey, and everyones BORED out of their minds!! No tellin what you might read on this MB! MOST everyone believes he knows a little more than the next person, even if he has to make crap up. I get a big kick out of some of the arguments, but, at the end of the day we're all in the same boat. Just a bunch of diehards waiting for football season to get here.

He's a softy. I have no doubt that he chews ass behind closed doors, but at the end of the day he will stick with Project X come hell or high water.

Notice I didn't say he's a candy ass. Nor did I say he's a powder puff. When I say "softy" I'm just saying that he tends to stick with his guys longer than warranted. The most curious examples are: Allowing Kris Brown to even "compete" with Rackers in camp a few years back, and allowing Jacoby Jones to continue fielding punts in the playoff game vs. Ravens. Those are the two stark examples of how Kubiak extends the trust stick a little too far.

I don't hate the guy for it. Just making an observation. But people on here get their undies in a bunch if Saint Kubiak has his image marred. Overall, he's been the best Texans HC we've had. I'm not thrilled with him, but neither am I dissatisfied with him. I just think he sticks with some things a little too long.
