    I'm not in the group that wants Kubiak out, but if the season spirals downward from yesterday, then I will be in that group soon.

    That said, I thought we could throw some names out that could be available at seasons end.

    Jon Gruden

    I've always liked Gruden. He runs the same offense pretty much. I wonder who he would bring in as D Coordinator?

    I like Gruden.

    I like Cowher too, but folks keep saying he would never come to Houston. I don't know what they have to back this statement up, so if anyone could education me, please do.

    Shanny is a possibility that does NOT set my panties on fire. More of the same, IMHO.

    How about Gary just coaches better? I'd say taking back play-calling duties would be a good start.

    I was also going to throw Charlie Weiss out there, but defensively, I don't know what he would bring.

    He coaches the eagles D and will be a hot commodity at the end of the year.

    I dont know about the Eagles DC, he's very young and just got the DC job this year, taking over from a legend.

    Me too, please. Bill Cowher likes having full control and Bob McNair is not really a hand on owner. At least we'd have that going for us if the season goes really, really downhill...

    I think Gruden is overrated. His players hated him in Tampa, in not in that good way.

    If Bill Cowher wanted to be coaching, he'd be coaching. You think the availability of the Texans job is going to pull him out of retirement? Not a chance. There are potentially going to be WAY more attractive jobs (for Cowher) than Houston at the end of this season.

    Carolina - where he's from and where most people think he's just waiting for them to fire the current HC.
    Dallas - huge piles of money, high profile job - and if you think he won't put up with the Billionaire Hillbilly Jerrah Jones, don't forget that Parcells put up with him.
    Redskins - high profile, owner is insane with money and will spend it without question, great division, rich history.
    Vikings - great O-line and D-line already in place, perhaps the best RB of our generation already in place, decent amount of history.

    Look at all those jobs that might be available, and ask yourself why Bill Cowher would consider the Texans?
