    I think he is maturing as a coach. I like the fact he ran the ball 3 times with foster and did'nt try some bs play to let the clock stop. Make the other team go 80 yards in 50 sec with no time outs. I can't see how any person with any real football knowledge disagrees with that. I think his team was prepared to play even after the horrible loss last week. The team does'nt quit. I think he is turning into a good head coach that did'nt know much about the defensive side of the ball and he listened to the wrong people. With any type of defense we are 8 and 2 this year.

    there are two conditions. first the team must keep playing at a high level for the rest of this year. Next we have to replace Bus. Kubiak should hand the defense over to the new guy and stay out of the way, draft picks included and he also should not have a vote in who the new guy is. That should be left to Mcnair and Smith.

    I can't argue if he is fired, i'm just saying what I would do.

    I actually agree with you on this. I think firing him is a defensible position, but this d coordinator is killing us. I also don't think you allow Kubiak to pick out the d coordinator. Get someone who is proven and clean house with the position coaches on defense. These guys need to start over from the ground up.

    Honestly, depending on how the rest of the season goes I may decide that I'd want to keep Kubiak around.

    But there neeeds to be major changes on the defense...

    As much as I have bashed on Kubiak though, I want to atleast see how he does the rest of this season before I officially call for his head.

    You can't keep a coach who has hired Richard Smith and Frank Bush.

    If a head coach can't be trusted to hire a DC, he can't be trusted as a HC.

    this. His two DC hires, and his last OC hire, indicate to me that loyalty and friendship is more important than winning. He simply can't be trusted to put the teams interest first.

    yeah, at least he can walk around and give the tour of the facility to Cowher before he's out the door.

    From what I have seen and heard of him, Kubiak is a great person, a great human being and class act. However, as a head coach in the NFL, he is just NOT getting it done. No playoffs and he needs to go.

    I love that those two segments were written by the same person in the same post.

    Kubiak sucks, has forever, get rid of him. He peaked at 9-7.

    You've got to be kidding me. Kidding, right? No?

    Kubiak is a good coach. He has improved this team dramatically.

    My biggest question is his choice of coaches on the defensive side of the ball. Both from a scheme perspective and a ability to develop talent perspective.

    I would also look at the scouting program to see why we can't seem to bring in any effective DBs.

    The fact he still has the team on his side speaks volumes about his leadership ability.

    I also have backed off my criticism of his playcalling and scheme as many of our faults of last year have actually improved.

    I can live with keeping him if we have a new DC again.

    So you love it that he completely disregarded the possibity of getting a FG before the half? Cut it out. He pulls this shit game-in and game-out, year-in and year-out.

    Kubiak is just the Head Loser in this case.

    Over here.
    I didn't even watch this game (yet), but I'll tell you what I see and why Kubiak should be fired:

    This high-profile offense only scored 7 points in the first half again and, while that's a slight improvement, it's still unexceptable from an offensive guru/HC. I bet they got their butts kicked in TOP in the first half again too....didn't they? I bet the D was exhausted and falling apart by half-time again....weren't they? I'll bet we would have won this game AGAIN if there'd just been another 5:00 on the clock....wouldn't we?

    Kubiak can't even motivate the part of the team he built really well before a game. The D is bad, but he can't even motivate his offense not to make the D worse.

    No, no, no. He is personally held responsible for hiring these clowns to run the defense, and by keeping him, you are not holding ANYONE on the franchise accountable for anything. Kubiak went the easy route and hired one of his buddies instead of hiring a proven NFL DC, can his a$$

    They outgained the Jets and had the ball for about a minute more in the first half, but that's not even the point.
