Does Coach Kubiak deserve an Extension? No grey areas on this one, just yes or no.
No. One playoff berth in 6 years does not warrant an extension. In a perfect world, Kubiak should coach out the final year on his contract and prove 2011 isn't a fluke.
But, we don't live in a perfect world. And McNair will give Kubiak, Rick Smith, and all of the assistants extensions. And we will see if 2011 is the start of good times. Or a fluke.
Is his contract up after this season?
2012 is the last year on Kubiak's contract. He received a 3 year deal following the 2009 "winning season".
Then no. No extension.
Easy Yes. The Texans have under achieved in the past but the only reason it was an under achievment and not what the Texans really were capable of was due to fumbles, missed field goals, and injuries, not Gary Kubiak. Gary has drafted and play called and hired to put us in a great position.
......he will get a contract extension because the people who make those decisions know what they are doing
Ask me again after week 8 of next season. As of now......no. If we win the super bowl this year then definately award him.
I think he deserves the extension, now the only thing to decide is if there is someone that deserves more to be hired at his place....
But I'm not an expert, I just watch football for fun
I say extend it for one or two years max, so it will at least be possible money wise to opt out if we want.
Where's the "Only if Wade comes with him" option??
The length of the extension doesn't matter if McNair decides to fire Kubiak. I would think that McNair would structure the contract to have a buyout clause if he decides Gary ain't gettin' it done.
Tough call, but the reality is that Kubiak will almost certainly get an extension even if he were to lose each of the last 2 games (to include the playoff game), by a margin of 3 TDs or more meaning he'd finish the 2011-2012 season with 4 consecutive losses.
It was a weak schedule to be sure, but on the other hand winning those back-to-back games and the division and playoff berth vs ATL and Cinci with the 5th round rookie at the helm was no small feat. And in spite of the overall schedule, I think the Texans did have a winning record vs 2012 playoff teams they played this year to this point in time ?
I'd amend the existing contract, adding a single year, and then he'd be under contract thru the 2013 season.
Yeah, my feelings exactly.
where are all those clever 'WARY' ppl now??
anyway yes he deserves (and will) to to be extended. he doesnt deserve to be a lameduck HC next yr. with or without wade, i think kubiak now have enough talent and has gleamed enough off wade this year to have a good defence going forward for the team to be successful- not to mention wade's replacement will more than likely be one of his coaches
This....... I voted no, but if he puts this team in the AFC Championship game, I'd be all for it.
Personally, I think McNair is thinking along the same lines. He may be happy with one play off win, but if we're 1 & done, I doubt he gets an extension.
I think that is exactly what he deserves. But I also think he would handle the situation well. I think he's done a great job handling adversity to the best of his ability... so far. LameDuckiness is just another thing that he needs to show he can work through.
If he can, I think we have a coach for the ages. If not..... I don't know if it is worth waiting to see.
Does that include the 2012 season or no?
Hell No...we've got to see more playoff appearances & at least 1 deep playoff run before that should happen.
let him finish out his contract. Lets see how it goes next year when everyone is healthy (hopefully stay that way), before offering an extension.
Yea he has this year 2011-2012 and next year 2012-2013 then his contract is up
