    I am feeling this whole beginning of a new era thing and I have gotta say that I really hope that we can sit here in 10 years time and still be talking about the great job that Kubiak is doing.

    I am assuming that he will be a great HC in saying this of course.

    I look at what the Steelers have with Cowher and just admire that so much.

    Any thoughts about having a good coach and then sticking with them through thick and thin??

    Gary should had been the first and only coach of the Texans . McNair realized what a blunder he made in choosing Capers. It`s a blessing Gary was still available. Gary will be coaching here for a while .

    I agree. But the reason Kubs was bypassed the first time was because Bob Mc thought he needed a little more seasoning before making the big move. I can't say I would stand behind him through thick and thin yet, I want to see a year BEFORE I evaluate him. If he has 4 losing seasons in a row, you think he would still be a head coach for the 5th?

    I predict his "dynasty" lasts about the term of his current contract.

    I was waiting for you to chime in, Bobo. We all know your stand on Kubiac and how "horrible" he has done this offseason. I personally am proud of the franchise's moves this offseason and believe these moves will improve this team this upcoming season and possibly for the long-haul.

    I'm with the original poster. I am very excited about this draft and the upcoming season. :redtowel:

    A.) Didn't like the Oilers when they were in Houston, certainly don't care for them now in Tenn. B.) I believe, in the long run, it'll be me who will be saying I told you so. C.) I could care less who wins the Titans vs. Texans game. I used to -- until Kubiak came on board. D.) Stop :crying:

    I don't believe I have any hits or misses yet. But here's one:

    I agree with Abbest.... even though the reason you just stated, was given by both McNair & Kubiak(what did you expect him to say??). But ever since we decided to run a "Denver-type" of run offense, I wondered why we didn't just Hire Kubiak the first time.

    Now, I'd love for Kubiak to be our Fisher, our Cowher. I'm really impressed to see the change in direction from overpaying older veterans(has beens) to getting some young blood in here through Free Agency....... & some high character guys who should prove to be true leaders on our team.


    I know..... this wasn't started off as a Vince/Bush thread, so I'm moving my the rest of my post.

    Fisher, there is another guy who has had a long tenure and has a real commitment from the FO. There is something cool about that.

    Thanks for keeping this RB/VY free.

    Also I understand that the average coaching life span is less than 5 years, but is that always for the best?

    Look at Sherman who is with us now, he took his team to the playoffs year after year, then a bad season and he is gone... I don't get it. Did he forget how to coach?

    Memo to Dom Capers.

    Do not go into a tent alone with Bobo.







    Genius, I say: Link: My Bobo Theory


    Bobo actually says thought provoking things every once in a while. The reflexive pessimism and negativity and the way he says them makes most of his posts hard to take seriously as anything other than look-at-me trolling. (Well, and the repeated Cowher/Holmgren = Capers point of view makes me giggle too). I do appreciate people thinking about stuff and not just doing a herd mentality about things, but if you actually care about adding thoughtful dialogue, tone does matter. There is a way of playing devil's advocate on things without being unpleasant.

    An example: I like eating pie. With a fork. On a plate. I don't much care for it in my face though.

    I am guessing this analogy gets lost.:cool:

    A.) Oh, come about midseason, you will take what I have said *very* seriously, I am sure. But then again, I am sure the die-hard Kubiak supporters will never admit they are wrong and will continue to blame Capers. It will be interesting to see how long they take this track. B.) I haven't brought up the Capers/Cowher/Holmgren analogy for awhile, but it's interesting you brought it up because it obviously seems to have made an impression on you. C.) The pie analogy seems to be more in line with a Geico/Gecko commercial than anything else.

    Seeing that the Texans had one and got rid of him, I don't think that policy is part of the Texans' thinking. If they would have had Cowher, they probably would have fired him when his team went 6-10 after regressing seven games in two years while Capers regressed five.

    To me at the time Caper was hired, Kubiak was likely McNair's second choice.
    Obviously, he made a wrong choice.

    And yes, I hope this will be the beginning of something special.:trophy:
