    I for one would like to see him stay if he brings in a new proven DC.

    I am the only one?

    And no I am not going to argue against the whole board as to why.

    And a GM who picked the players the GM wanted and not the guys Kubiak wants.

    I wanted him to stay until the last two weeks. I do think he will go on to be a successful HC somewhere but he needs to be fired once first. Yeah, I know that sounds funny, and maybe ignorant but its like a teenager learning that his friends will get him in trouble... it usually takes getting burned pretty badly before it sinks in.

    The only way I'd see him stay is if a DC is brought in with a title like Assistant HC or something but I think we're beyond that point. I didn't see the game yesterday (traveling... I know... first game I've missed that I was actually able to view in history... shame on me) but to me the team looks like they've quit on him. That is pretty much the end of the line if you ask me.

    I appreciate both you guys standing up for what you believe is good for the team, but I believe he's had his chance, the blame lies squarely at his feet, and he needs to go. Will I abandon this team if they don't let him go? I doubt it, I'm inherently a masochist :)

    I won't argue either, I'll just say that assuming Kubiak stays - it's going to be extremely difficult to attract a "proven" DC.

    At this point I don't think Kubiak even wants to stay. If Bob does not make a move this team will be a bigger joke than it is now. There are teams firing their coaches right now with less reasons.

    I think Kubiak should be traded to Denver for a 2nd rounder.

    I am not passionate about Kubiak, just as I am not as passionate about the Texans I once was. I really do not care if he stays, but if he does I want a new GM, DC and ST coach.

    On balance, I think he's had enough time and needs to go, but I do feel that his potential is unfulfilled.

    If I could be certain that he'd hire an experienced DC as opposed to one of his buddies from Denver, I'd have a modicum of interest in keeping him. But to be honest, he's already failed that test.

    I still have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that he's going to be successful if we get rid of him.

    I picked up on that vibe yesterday from the tone of his voice during the press interviews.

    Kubiak needs to go. Who do you think brought Richard Smith and Frank Bush here? What makes you believe he will get it right with another DC?

    I'm not sure TK is still pro-Kubiak.

    agreed on that. there is quite a bit of potential greatness on this team if they could ever put it together... and although kubiak rightfully gets blame for not doing it, i think a significant part of that is to do with the 'other' players we have not doing their jobs

    I don't think you'll find anyone on here who enjoyed the fifth annual mid-season, four-game losing streak, let alone anyone who looks forward to the sixth.

    I'm kind of like KT - I won't be hopping mad if a new coach is brought in and I won't be hopping made if Kubiak stays with caveats on both. I am not in the anybody but Kubiak club. I really dislike Gruden and don't see Fox as an improvement as HC. If they could land Cowher, Jimmy Johnson or Harbaugh then that's fine. If Kubiak stays at a minimum Bush and Gibbs need to leave and I would prefer a new GM as well. I am most interested in seeing a proven DC brought in either way.

    Cak, for the first time in history, you voiced my opinion exactly.
