This one-step-forward, two-steps-back routine isn't going to fly anymore. It's time to keep stepping forward... like we should have done against Tennessee and NY. And like we should do this weekend.
2-14 is almost the lowest you can get in the NFL. Nobody can change that overnight. I think Kubiak is going to be the coach that will bring winning records to this franchise. It's just going to take awhile to build the team that can implement his vision.
We're almost to that point where the Oilers were under Glanville in late '86 when after a 1-8 start, they won their last 4 home games to finish 5-11 and going to football games became fun again.
I remember reading an article on Sports Illustrated and the title was something like "10 Future Super Bowl winning head coaches". Among them was Gary Kubiak. I'm right on with you. Kubiak is the coach that's going to lead the Texans to the playoffs. To the Super Bowl is a whole different matter, but I feel very confident in having Coach Kubes leading the Texans!
Absolutely 100% spot on.
JMO, but I didn't see any 'two-steps-back'. Carr crumbled against TN and he got benched - accountability, an important step for the coaches to take. Against NY we outplayed a superbowl hopeful through most aspects of the game. The playcalling on the last drive wasn't a step forward but it was standing still, rather than the @$$-backward, stumbling fall on the face we've seen in previous years.
I'd rather have a slow, stable, hyper-conservative season this year to build for a solid, wildcard challenging season next year than have a couple of dramatic drives through the stretch and end up being right back below .500 come Christmas 2007.
