    McNair extended Kubiak the season he should have been fired. Is it any wonder players like Schaub and Bullock aren't held accountable? It's the corporate culture.

    No, but players like Tate are held accountable when they fumble once and get benched even though he was having a kick-ass game.

    I'd say it's favoritism, not accountability.

    Either way, it's a helluva a way to run a franchise. At least the fans give them lots of money for the show.

    You can argue that it's almost racism I mean the system is being run in good ol boy fashion.

    This. Keshawn Martin fumbled and recovered it himself. The next punt return Keo was back there.

    Hey, it works for the fans and it works for business, so what's to change? The games all sell out. *shrug*

    This has been an INSTITUTIONAL problem that has been going on from day 1.

    See Joe Marciano

    He has been here since day one and year in year out special teams has been a problem and he is still employed. They finally addressed the situation last year but their answer to the problem was to hire someone who was just recently fired from his job and was going on his 7th or 8th job in like 10 years or something.

    Marciano still being employed by the texans is the glaring example of a DEEPLY ROOTED INSTITUTIONAL PROBLEM with accountability.

    See Frank Bush

    It took Kubiak getting threatened to lose his job for him to pull the trigger on Frank Bush. I mean why was he even hired in the first place with no experience DCing?

    See Steve Slaton

    We almost missed out on Foster because Kubiak refused to see talent and kept trotting out slaton. Foster only got a chance when slaton got injured.

    See Kevin Walter

    Kept trotting him out there and refused to play the young guys because walter was such a good blocker. I mean to value blocking over catching with a receiver is just asinine.

    See Kareem Jackson

    He had an awful first year where he was just not ready to play vs 1s and 2s yet Kubiak kept putting him out there and refused to see if anybody can do better. You see your rookie being overwhelmed, why not re designate him as #3 corner and bring him along slowly since it was quite obvious he wasnt ready to start.

    See Kubiak

    We all know.

    See Schaub.

    Ditto.

    I could keep going with plenty more examples of players (zac diles, okoye, now with shiloh keo) not being good at their jobs yet there was no accountability and no change made to see if other options worked.

    Its arrogance and stupidity at it epitomizes the phrase loyal to a fault. They value contracts, status, and seniority instead of talent and having to earn the right to be on the field.

    Its disgusting.

    When you replace a qb its usually a permanent deal. At the very least one game. Add that to the fact that what's replacing him is probably not going to be very good. It makes it a tough decision. Ben Tate goes out for a quarter and you have a better guy taking up the slack. Then he can come back in and not miss a beat. At this point something needs to be done but its a totally different decision.

    Your the second person to mention racism in this decision. I don't think you thought that statement through.

    imagine if matt schaub was black and played the same way.

    You think he lasts this long as starter?

    i dont think so.

    Ah. The only thing I remembered is he wasn't in the next punt return after the fumble. He returned later in the game, so maybe it was just a minor injury for Kmart..

    Schaub didn't even have the sack to face the media after the game.

    Accountability.

    McNair's track record is not requiring any accountability. At least not until it's far too late.

    Here's what he said:

    "Matt's my guy. That was on me. I didn't put Matt in a position to win. It's on me."

    I didn't actually listen, but I already know that's what he said, and so you do.

    He talked in the locker room. He declined to go to the podium.
