I am wanting to have a reasoned discourse about the fixability of this year's team. (i.e. no fire the owner, ball boy kind of discussions). As for Kubiak's tenure with the team, I do not wish to engage in this discussion now because McNair isn't going to fire him midseason so save your powder. Actually, I want you to take the roll of Kubiak in this exercise. Given what is realistic to do, can you fix this team and how? The game against the Jets was the perfect storm of suckage. Here's our inventory: Schaub, Myers, Pitts, Leach coming off of injuries. Even without injuries there were questions whether the middle of the line could hold against physical teams. #2 receiver out. Backup QB has questionable understanding of the offense and #3 QB is uh, not ready for primetime or Sunday at noon for that matter. Running game has gone AWOL. OC is rookie at calling plays, game planning. The defense has a new coordinator putting in new scheme and techniques. Hard to pinpoint weakness on defense that has a lot of weak positions. The defensive tackles are underwhelming and the secondary is a bunch of rooks and Mr. Just Wants to Get Paid who skipped camp because he could and is relearning how to tackle. Eugene Wilson and Jacques Reeves are both recovering from injuries, don't know when they are available. DC is rookie at caling plays, game planning. Next week you are facing the Titans on the road. What do you do? (Please, I want this to be a football discussion, so please leave out the "assume the fetal position" or "punch yourself in the face" comments cuz there's plenty of other threads to vent). And if you don't want to answer from a Kubiak perspective, how about this question? Do you think: 1. The Texans are just going to struggle against more physical teams but beat up weak sisters. 2. This team is just going to be bad. 3. This was just one of those games, and the Texans will get their stuff together. The offense and defense need more time to gel instead of looking like gel. Or some sort of combo of one of these.
