    No faith in his offensive line and running back. That's sad. We had two shots at gaining a yard and we conceded that we couldn't get it on the ground TWICE.

    That was the most ridiculous play call I've seen this year. Your faced with inches....go with a high conversion percentage play, not a cocky prayer into the end zone.

    Kubiak believed he was God. All he needed to do was run it in with Matt or Slaton. Hell, Leach would have been the best choice as he busts heads daily. This loss really irritates me.

    What the F? I don't understand this at all. I don't even know what to say about it.

    So he decides to throw it twice? No, I don't care what their DL is doing. Stupid as hell playcalling. Anyone who thinks that playcalling isn't stupid needs to get checked out.

    You know what - We should have put Turk in the game and run the WildTurkey Offense. It worked so well the last time we "used" it. Whats the worse that could have happened?

    It's either he has no faith in his line (which makes no sense) or he thinks he's an offensive genius, and can out think the other team.

    I don't care which one it is. I'm SICK TO DEATH of mediocrity and stupidity. I don't have to be a big fat freakin' 160+ IQ-owning Smarty McSmartypants to know that YOU GO WITH THE HIGH PERCENTAGE PLAY of running the damn ball behind Vonte Leach with freakin' half a yard to go.

    I abhor stupidity and poor decision making. ABHOR IT. As in, I hate it. Loathe it. Believe it should be purged from the earth in a great white hot fire. And guess who's "*****" list Kubiak just landed up on. Mine.

    I'm done with Kubiak. I want proven winners. Guys who know how to prepare for games and how to manage them. I want coaches who will run it up the gut mercilessly on 3rd and 1/2 a yard. I want coaches who don't "out think" themselves out of games. Kubiak is NOT a genius. He is a gimmick who saw some little bit of success and now he's exposed like a stripper who just had a pasty malfunction.

    I sat watching those two third and forth down plays with my mouth agape. I looked like Dom Capers as those two plays unfolded. You're supposed to put your team in the position to win the damn game, not try some trickeration when it's freakin' not necessary. Want some trickeration, Kubes? How about you prepare your team to expect onsides kicks? How's about that?

    I'M DONE with Kubiak. D-U-N. DONE. This guy is a joke of a head coach.

    I think they should have run the toss play instead of running into the back of the o-line .. it worked against Tenn.. they didnt even try it today

    And that changes with plays like converting a first down on the ground to keep a drive alive down at the goal line. You don't take that away from the defense by just not doing it.

    Schaub could have sneaked that over with very little trouble. You give a defense the idea that you're scared to run up the middle to get a yard and you give them a huge lift. You confirm that by telling your offense to not even try once and you pull the rug right out from under them.

    The onsides kick has become a high percentage play against the Texans.
    Welcome to the dark side, Jen. It's been lonely over here.

    I would have done the same thing. 9 out of 10 times we would have caught one of those, but I really doubt we would have dome anything against a goalline D unless we gave it to Leach again. We need a bruiser type back.

    Gotta rep ya. I'm tired of grooming Denver's next HC. I'm tired of one of the worst defenses in the league. I'm just tired of it all.

    I'm as confused and frustrated by these calls by Kubiak as everyone else ?
    I'd guess his explanation may be something along the lines of him needing to have one of those sessions about staring at himself in the mirror because he's to blame just like everyone else on the roster is.
    The real deal here is that the game is meaningless. We're not going anyway this year. And we improved our position in the Draft by losing this meaningless game.
    My real concern is that Kubiak might make a bonehead call in a game down the line that has real consequences ? Like playoff consequences ?

    9 out of 10 times? Did you even SEE the forth down play? They had two, count 'em, TWO wideouts in the end zone with all 4 or 5 Raider secondaries dropping back. They didn't even have a TE release and for a third receiving option!

    It's half a yard. HALF A YARD. I'll power-I that all day and run Slaton behind Vonte Leach. Or do as spurstexanstros suggested and run the sweep. Slaton has had a lot of success running to the outside. But we hardly use that play all day.

    I just don't understand why the coaches insist on putting the Texans in situations that don't make sense considering we have a higher probability of success if we do the exact opposite of what they call.

    I'm getting tired of Kubiak as well. I want a tough coach that puts a fire under his players. Give me Bill Cowher. Please come to Houston Bill Cowher.

    I am there, Lucky. I have come to a state of acceptance of my disdain for Kubes, Smith, et al. I love my Texans and I have an almost unreasonable and inexplicable belief that Schaub is still our QB of the future, but I'm sick of the coaches. I want proven winners now, not coordinators who are making a move up the food chain. Experiment is now over.

    Back the Brinks truck up and make a play for Cowher. Promise him 40 virgins and a city named after him. Shower him with whatever he wants. How could he possibly view Cleveland as a better job given the players on each team over the Texans, if Cleveland is truly the job he's eyeing?

    I don't believe he was injured, but at the end of the game, he was on the sideline. what's up?
