    Man, I didn't realize I'd be this fired up today. I mean, I've known for 2-3 weeks that Kubiak was the man, but now it's for real.

    This is going to be a very exciting offseason, regardless of what they do with the pick.

    (And for what it's worth, here's my official vote for trading it).

    Go Texans!

    That's the spirit! This is an exciting time to be a Texans fan. We have the #1 pick, a new head coach, and can only go up from here.

    I honestly believe that Kubiak could take this exact team as it sits right now and we would finish with 6-8 Ws.

    Coaching makes a big difference, a really big difference and far more than the "casual fan" ever wants to give credit for. I don't think we could have done better than Kubiak in this particular offseason, and I am excited to see what he brings to the table.

    I'm with you all the way: regardless if we draft Bush, Vince Young, or whoever with that first pick, I think we have a lot to look forward to this offseason and on into next year.

    The pessimists around like to act like it has to take 3-4 years from this point to hope for the play-offs. That just isn't so in today's NFL. The examples are not even that rare in the time period the Texans have been in existence. For example the 2-14 2002 Bengals hired a new coach for 2003 and went 8-8. It may not happen that well for the Texans, but it is silly for people to act like it can't.

    I would be happy with anything close to 8-8 next year.

    To follow up from above, just look at last year. Every team who drafted in the top 5 last year won more games this year. Two, San Fran and Cleveland gained just 2 games, but there are severe circumstances (San Fran's cap and Cleveland's injuries to their past 2 top draft picks, Winslow and Edwards for example) which hampered them. The other 3 teams made tremendous advances with Chicago and Tampa Bay going on to win their divisions and Miami just one game off of winning their division. I am by no means saying people should have expectations that high, but this new 4+ rebuilding period stuff is just overworked pessimism.

    We were also a 7-9 team 2 seasons ago. I think our talent is much closer to that than they showed this year when the conservative coaching spiraled to its inexorable conclusion.

    Great post. It is nice to be excited about the franchise again. Hopefully we can all rid ourselves of the nasty taste of a 2-14 season. Kubiak is all business and I think he is going to get this team in the playoffs sooner than later!

    Jeez killjoy...just playin'. I totally concur. M. Lewis is one of my favorite coaches, as far as coaches that are with other teams go. I think that Kubiak will be a great influence on this team, and could bring this team around in a heart-beat. I know I compared Kubes to Bellichick, and it was a bit pre-mature, but anybody is better than who we had before. We may not have an exciting offense next year, but we'll have a efficient.

    By the way...HONK!!!

    You know, I kinda feel that if I am this into the Texans when they are 2-14, I can't imagine how I will be when the finally get good. My brain might explode.

    As fans, I really think we need to get out of reflexive criticism mode and dogging and making fun of the Texans as almost a defense mechanism. It is hard to get out of that mode and dare to believe again. The team needs to get in a winning mindset and so do the fans. We can do our part, one by one.

    Go Texans!!!!!! :texflag:
