Woohoo! I think we all knew deep down he could some day be average.
Well I hope he breaks .500 and his playoff cherry this year
If he gets 1 over, are you ready to call him "above average"?
In a strict dictionary sense, of course. I might say "slightly" or "just" above average though. Statistically speaking, do we really want to get into sigma and rho and stuff?
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/coaches/ Check out Wade Phillips.
Check out other names... then again, think of Gary at 500... ?? It's been a long road, but he's in some good company... notably, 600 seems to be too high. there are some great coaching names in the 500's.
If I'm calculating correctly he is a career .500 if the Texans finish the season 11-5. Could be tough without Dre.
Mike Tomlin sure was gifted a good team
Yeah, but Tomlin took that good team to 2 Superbowls in his first 5 seasons.
The man has proven to be an above-average coach, not to be confused with
...and he's only 39 years old.
And he's actually Omar Epps.
not saying tomlin isnt a good coach but it doesnt look like hes done a great job replenishing that great team he was handed. i think we're going to find out in the next few yrs how good he really is when he has to build his own team
say what you want about kubiak but no one can deny he's done a good job of building a good young team from scratch here
He didn't have to go through the growing pains of having to build that team from scratch and so his w/l record is inflated. Same with Wade Phillips and Mike Martz.
I'd honestly like to see the results of many well respected coaches after taking a 2-14 team saddled with salary cap issues and David Carr as a QB.
That's on him. I mean, those kids go out there and give it their all. They need to make sure they close out those games. :::taps thumb on podium:::
Don't forget dealing with the fallout of their terrible drafts and the Babin trade.
There are some things that people seem to find irritating about Kubiak that I just don't see the problem with: tapping the podium, calling players "kids", having the big playsheet, being superstitious enough to turn away from the field goal attempt. None of that stuff bothers me at all.
Wayne Fontes had a more productive career that Gary Kubiak.
Kubes' fans are all FAITH, no results.
1-4 playoff record with one of the greatest running backs in NFL history.
Better than Kubiak at this point, but honestly, not by much.
You know I'm not a Kubiak fan, but I've suspended my 'lack of faith' in him for this season. Let it play out and see what his sixth brings to Houston. 3-1 so far, but still have 75% of the season to go.
Looks like 5 playoff appearances with one of the worst front offices of all time.
Kubiak's career still doesn't measure up, no.matter what happens this season.
Separate names with a comma.
