    That's already taken care of with Jerry Gray though.

    Supposedly, McNair is likely to interview Gary Kubiak, Al Saunders, Jerry Gray, Brad Childress, Ron Rivera, Ken Whisenhunt, Tim Lewis, Cam Cameron, and
    Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino. He wanted to interview Gregg Williams, but the skins just locked him up, and Rivera has not been granted permission yet, but might be.

    Not counting Kippy, who has no chance, and Williams, that leaves 9 candidites. Petrino is out of left field, and I think he is a long shot. By far the most likely to wind up with the job is Kubiak, who has been the person I thought would get it since about mid season. IMO, Saunders and Gray will finish 2nd and 3rd in this close race.

    I never thought about Petrino. What do you guys think about him? I think he could be pretty good, but Kubiak would be better.

    What about Cameron, I heard he was the OC for the chargers. What does everybody think about him?

    I think Kubiak is prime for the spot. Hes got the experience, knowledge, and tools, to make the texans special.

    With Carr, A.Johnson, D. Davis, and soon to be R. Bush, on his team, he will have all the tools he needs. Grab a LT, and TE in the 2nd, and you are in business.

    On defense, he will have his corner in, D. Robinson, his safety's in Brown, and Earl. And a slew of players for his front 7. My personal picks.

    FS CC Brown
    SS Earl
    CB Robinson
    CB Faggins / Buchanon
    MLB Wong
    LOLB Greenwood
    ROLB Peek
    DE Walker
    DE Babin
    DT Smith / Johnson
    DT Payne / Johnson

    QB Carr
    TB Davis
    TB Bush
    FB Norris
    WR Johnson
    WR Mathis / Gaffney
    TE Pope / Joppru
    LT Colledge
    RT Wade
    LG Pitts
    RG Wiegert
    C Hodgdon

    The peices are set. Just need the coach to coach them. Give them a winning formula.

    Louisville has a very good football program. I'm sure Petrino is a good coach, and there could be worse choices. However, my mind has pretty much already been made up that I want Kubiak.

    John Clayton has said that the job is the guy from Iowa's if he wants it, but that he will most likely remain at Iowa. I have a good feeling that Gary Kubiak is going to be the coach.

    If I'm not mistaken he was the head coach at Indiana, and was run out of there. Admittedly you can't build a football program overnight in the Big Ten, getting creamed by Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State every year, but he was nothing special as a collegiate head coach.

    Cam Cameron • 1997-2001
    Career Record at Indiana: 18-37
    Big Ten Record at Indiana: 12-28
    Cam Cameron led the Hoosiers for five seasons
    and complied a record of 18-37. He was the
    second former Indiana student-athlete to take
    over at the helm of the IU football program.
    Cameron played both football and basketball
    for Indiana in the early 1980's. Prior to joining
    the Indiana coaching ranks he served as an
    assistant coach for the Washington Redskins
    in the NFL. Cameron brought an explosive
    offense to Memorial Stadium and a new look to
    Hoosier football. Indiana took the field with a
    new oval IU logo. Indiana averaged 23.6 points
    per game under Cameron's guidance. The
    Hoosiers enjoyed success as well in the classroom
    as IU was recoginzed by the American
    Football Coaches Association for their exemplary
    football graduation rates in each of
    Cameron's final four seasons.

    AND THEN THEY CANNED HIS *****

    No way I want this guy in charge of our team.
