    With Kubiak as our new coach, and saying that we will have a successful offseason and draft, how many wins will the texans have next season?

    Being the realist that I am, I can only hope for a 6-10 season.

    Anything better than that would be peaches and cream.

    With Kubiak as the coach, it won't be pretty. I can only hope that the team comes to its senses before they make this dreadful mistake. I really loved the Texans for the first three years under Capers. They were exciting to watch as a season ticket holder and I really, really looked forward to the games. But under Kubiak, this team is going to flounder for the next couple of years and take on the look of the Arizona Cardinals. If they do hire Kubiak, and since I have no doubt what will happen under him, I'll have to review my status as a season ticketholder. And that saddens me because I really did enjoy 2002-4 and believe to this day the experience was worth the money. But I know what it's like to go to games where you know the team is going to lose and I seriously wonder if it's going to be worth the hundreds of dollars this team wants for my fanny in a seat as they head down the wrong road with Kubiak at the wheel. I predict three wins, maybe four at the most.

    Explain what's so wrong with Kubiak.

    A.) I don't see six wins on the sked.
    B.) Another double-digit loss season with a team in its fifth year can no longer be seen as progress.
    C.) I wouldn't characterize 6-10 as "a return to respectability."

    Bobo, do you promise to give your season tickets up if we win with Kubiak, too? :howdy:

    It's too early to tell I will come back and make a prediction after we hire a new coach and the draft.

    What??

    I can't argue that the team won't struggle. We'll have to see after draft day (hopefully Cass won't have too much to do w/ it and we'll get great players). I expect to struggle at least for a while. You don't really expect a 2-14 team to go 12-4 the next season. With that being said, ANYONE would be better than Capers....and I actually think Kubiak is going to help tremendously. I say 6-10 next season.

    Can't you see? The only reason you liked the way the Texans played for the first three years under Capers is b/c they had heart and were competitive. Why were they competitive? B/c they had great veteran leadership which were also great players. Once most of them were let go in the offseason (i.e. Glenn, Sharper, etc.) and then the team needed a leader, you would normally look to the coaching staff. Obviously, they didn't do a great job. Capers did the same thing in Carolina. The team did great at first and went to the playoffs in their second season....but they had MANY veteran leaders. Once the veterans retired or left, the team bombed and Capers was fired.

    Looks like deja-vu to me. Capers Stinks!! Kubiak will definitely be an upgrade. How much of an upgrade remains to be seen since he has never been a HC before. V.Lomardi didn't either. I remain optimistic.

    7 - 9 wins if we have Kubiak, Carr, Bush, Johnson, and Davis and the 4/3 defense!

    As long as Casserly is here I can't see that happening. This year's draft and free agency market are extremely promising to say the least. We are also obviously in a great position with the number one pick and a decent amount of cap space for next year, but with Casserly at the wheel I wouldn't be surprised at all if we screwed this offseason up like so many others. My only hope is that Kubiak plays a much greater role in offseason acquisitions than Casserly does. Regardless of what happens, however, I don't see the Texans winning more than 6 or 7 games next season. I have confidence that Kubiak and McNair will set the team on the right track, but I just don't think its possible to turn this ship around that quickly.

    I think it's possible that Reeves, McNair and Kubiak will have input. Let's hope Kubiak is better at evaluating talent than Capers and Co.

    Houston, again.
    IMO, CC will be about as big of a non-factor as GM in this draft as there has been. McNair (said he would be there), Reeves, Kubiak & staff & scouts will be the MAIN factors in selecting the talent. I see CC just sagly nodding his head at what they propose. I've said this befor, but I think he is on such a short leash that if he even just screws up the teams lunch order, he's out the door.

    By the way, one of the REAL strong poit of Kubiak is supposed to be talent evaluation.

    At this point in time, I can only see this being a :homer: poll. Too many variables out there to make an informed and educated answer. Too many changes coming down the pike this off season, some we have not even thought of yet.
    Try again after training camp. :)

    You sound like a real winner.

    Kubiak is going to do wonders for our currently improperly used offensive talent. You can say a lot of things about the Texans under Capers, but exciting is not one of them. The team had become stale and stagnant. Kubiak is one of the best offensive minds in the business and learned from a great coach.

    I hope you do not renew your season tickets so some of the real fans on the waiting list can cheer on their team.
