    They'll probably make Chester Pitts a player coach because nobody knows the Texan way like Chester .

    Kubiak isn't going anywhere.

    Probably depends on who we would hire. My guess is that if Kubiak left though, Gibbs would probably leave on his own.

    now if we suck in '09, the whole lot of 'em are out the door. But I don't see Kubiak going anywhere this off-season...

    ...of course, stranger things have happened.

    Who knows if the next coach would even run a ZBS. If he doesn't, then it's pretty obvious that Gibbs is out as well. Also, I think the only reason Gibbs came out of retirement was because Kubiak asked him to help him out with teaching ZBS, so I doubt he'll stick around if Kubes is gone....


    But all of this is irrelevant because Kubiak isn't going anywhere, anyways.

    Somewhere there is an interview with Kubiak where he says Gibbs and Rhodes contacted him about the jobs. Not the other way around..

    Either way, whatever. Bottom line, they came here for Kubiak, they won't stay if Kubiak gone. Btw, if guys like Rhodes and Gibbs called up Kubiak wanting to coach for him, it really telling of how highly they must think of him.

    I'm excited to see who's going to call up Kubiak in the off-season, asking if they can be his DC. If Frank is not already named the DC by then.

    Very funny

    Chester has been the constant on some of the worst OL in NFL history has been Pitts.

    This qualifies him to be the new Texans OL coach.

    Alot of the guys that could really play can't coach because they expect all the players to be smart and have a work ethic like they did .

    My thoughts are that Kubiak isn't going anywhere and will be a successful coach here. Alex Gibbs probably won't coach here very long. He will probably retire after another year or two.

    I think he will retire (again) when he is satisfied with our offensive line, or when Kubiak gets fired -whichever comes first. I don't believe either of those things will happen after this year. Decent chance one of them happens next season. No way he's here beyond 2010.

    I'd rather hire some one who's blocking schemes were actually useful in the 21st century

    Modern ZBS are great

    Alex Gibbs circa 1998 ZBS, no so much

    It's "telling" because they figured if Richard Smith could get a gig in Houston, so could they.

    Alex Gibbs came out of retirement, not unemployment, and Rhodes was Kubiak's initial choice for DC. Dick Smith was more of a last minute choice when the Cardinals didn't let Rhodes go.

    It was Frank Bush who was Kubiak choice for dc. The Cards wouldn't let him out of his contract.

    I'm sure having Mike Vick on the roster didn't hurt.

    Ray Rhodes was with the Seahawks from roughly 2003 to 2007, and he was not Kubiak's initial choice. I think you meant Frank Bush

    And my comment has nothing to do with the "hows" and the "whys" of how or why those guys got here. It was just a sarcastic dig at the fact that everyone has a chance at a job here if Richard Smith did.

    The pure and simple fact that Richard Smith was even interviewed at all is distressing enough as it stands.
