    this whole season has been bleak. the coach really cant do much BUT, im kinda starting to get some second thoughts on the hire. has anyone heard this guy, hes like really monotone and shows no fire or passion. still too early to judge the guy, but anyone getting the same feeling?

    nope, from previous reports - knew he wasn't big on speaking to the media - so kinda low tone when he does. Is not the excitable type, which I'm cool with if they're heading in the right direction. Also, he had the best draft (it seems) to date than we've had in the previous 4 drafts before.

    He's what I thought he is.

    Don't be second guessing just because we've had poor QB play...you can only teach so much, but at the end of the day, that particular player has to execute...period.

    If there is only one person on the Texans that I'm NOT disappointed in right now . . . it's Kubiak.

    Kubiak is doing the best he can with a very bad football team right now. I'm convinced he can improve this team over time, as long as McNair stays out of the way. McNair is the one I'm disappointed in right now.

    Kubiak needs to dump Carr. I think he knows that he needs to. The question is . . . will McNair let him. I'm pessimistic about that.

    Even with all the problems on the team, we are a bit better in many aspects of the game. But we have a very long way to go.

    And your overlooking the obvious and at the same time giving Kubiak a free
    pass - Kubiak had the best opportunity to change the QB situation and instead elected to stay with the status quo.

    I'm disapointed with his QB coaching ability. If this is even possible, I've actually seen Carr REGRESS over the past 8 weeks or so.

    I mean, he's made 3 key decisions so far:
    1. Draft Mario over VY, Reggie, D'Brick, or trade down
    2. Keep Carr as the franchise QB
    3. Think Carr has the potential to lead this team anywhere

    He's also made some good personel decisions, and made some good playcalls, but any coach should do that stuff. With the biggest decisions, he's come up a little empty.

    I still think he has what it takes, but I've been disapointed so far.

    regrettably, he's been what i came to think.

    i was excited when they hired him, but then he seemed to play the "white christian republican" card aty every turn, and the texans have proiceeded to play as WCR bilge under him.

    i'm very disappointed in this, but mcenron is certaonly pleased, WCR bilge as he is..

    I dunno about you, but I have no problem at all in second guessing Kubiak about his decision to keep Carr and pass on VY in the college Draft.

    I'm not giving him a free pass, i've been critical of some of his play calls at times...but it's true what I said...now step to me like that again and catch a beat down, young man....

    (last sentence was a joke...lol)

    I still support Kubiak. But, the only major differences I can see versus the previous regime: way less three tight end sets and way less screen passes.

    What does that have to with football, Heywood? You cannot turn off your political spigot for one second?

    cut out alot of original post but ..makes me wonder..we draft D'brick would have Dayne taken him out like Spencer got?

    not picking on Dayne,but would have been wild if a freak accident could have happened

    on a serious note. I am willing to give Kubiak the benefit of a doubt, it takes time to get "HIS" players in here, afterall we shook up the whole team and on a whole new concept

    I believe this also. Always darkest befor the dawn and all of that. We gave Capers & company three years...why now would you short change the young guy ? The guy's been waiting 25 years for his shot. He's not going to do anything to blow it. And Rick Simth's moves this season considering who was out there has been nothing short of outstanding. So the season went in the crapper ? So what ? Did you honestly feel in July with the team switching both phylosiphies on offense and defense we were going to get anything different ? Some tried to warn everyone. If they did make a push this year it would truly be astonding. So he missed on how damaged DC was ? Is that his fault. Outside looking in, should he have told them no, I can't save this guy..let's start over ? Just about all of the groceries in the pantry are not his. Dosen't he get the same chance to bring in his guys as Cappers and CC got ? The suicide guys on the kicking teams have been outstanding for five weeks. So they blow one today . So what ? Best kicking teams this team has ever had. We're getting some depth. Just going to take some more time. At least one more draft and two seasons of digesting the bad cap moves of the previous regieme. I've been waiting for forty -three years. I can wait a few more.

    So you think it was race that caused the Texans to pass on Young? I disagree with that, but you are entitled to your opinion.

    What if they end up taking a Troy Smith or Jamarcus Russell this year, would you feel differently?

    You know I really hate this. I mean I pulled for Warren Moon, Elven Bethea, Robert Brazsille, Kenny Houson.... Earl Campbel. ..all those guys were not of the cacasion presausion. Race card is really lame. I don't like the guys delievery. I don't like the fact that the guy hasn't improved his thorwing mothion. I don't hink he's stupid. I do feel he just might be the greatest college QB of all time. So....is ok if I think the guy is a hard head and uncoachalbe without being called David Duke. I mean com'on !!! I like the guy I really do. Just danged glad we didn't draft him. ...
    Still !!!!
