    I would be very disappointed if Kubiak were to be fired and I don't think that is in the Texans' best interest. He's brought this team a long ways already and I think McNair knows that. He expects to make the playoffs as most owners would with the roster and staff we have. I hope if this team gets off to a fast start that Kubiak gets an extension ASAP because he is the best coach for this team.

    A win in Tennessee will keep the pink soap away.

    it doesnt say he is in the hotseat at all...it says the owner expects a playoff appearance. Kub has improved this team so much, our biggest problem was of Def cor.


    ^ thats the whole article...where does it say he is in the hot seat? do you expect the owner to say he expects a losing season? use your brain

    i hate ppl starting rumors with no basis of fact

    Only way he gets fired is we lose more than 10-12 games. Another 8-8 year and he'll stick around. Always something to blame it on (injuries, hold outs, etc)

    Bring in Shanahan!!

    I tease. I think it's good to light a fire under his ass but he has done an excellent job with the talent he has. He is a good coach. Hopefully he is around for a while.

    In my mind, the team would have to have a regression for Kubiak to be on the hot seat.
    The only scenario that gets Kubiak fired, IMO, is if the team takes a noticeable step backwards, and Bill Cower becomes available to replace Kubes.

    Well, they took those comments out of text. I remember him saying this in a Chronicel article. He basically said that he feels the team has improved in the talent department and he believes the playoffs are obtainable. Nothing about people being on hot seats or anything. That's pure speculation.

    Bill Cowher would start an enormous rebuilding campaign. We'd be starting from scratch for the third time. He himself is also a testament to sticking with your HC as long as he doesn't pull a 2-14 out of his stupid butt.

    I still think the real problem has been Richard Smith as DC and a Defense that just needs to mature together and gel.

    Agree completely although I would add a lack of talent in the past has been an issue with the defense but that has been upgraded significantly recently in a short period of time

    Don't say the "g" word. Last time we used that one, we ended up going 2-14

    I think that "McNair wants playoffs = Kubiak is on hotseat" is a stupid position, and clearly not written by anyone who pays attention to McNair's decision making.

    I think McClain's position in his recent article on this is accurate based on what I know--that McNair very much respects what Kubiak is doing and barring a catastrophic collapse, Kubiak is as safe as any other NFL coach.

    Unless we have very serious injury problems, or folks not reporting to camp for some reason, I don't see this team going backwards, or even staying the same.

    They will be a better team this year and have a winning season baring those unforseen bad circumstances. I don't see where Kubiac should be worrying about his job. However, he should be worrying about how much the defense improves.

    the seat gets hot if you never win...so far he has never won. Gotta be this year or the seat will be red hot. Another mediocre season and I'd say that he'll have one more season to pull it out. If two Head coaches can't bring this team to win more games than they lose in our first decade of football, I'm all for trying a third.

    If there are no good reasons (injuries, hold outs, things like that) and we have another 8-8 season with all the talent in place, then yeah, Kubiac's seat is gonna get a tad toasty. LOL
