    As Texans fans we all pretty much felt that this is what McNair would say/do. But let me be the first to let out the collective...


    UUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHH....

    OK, great; so, if this team goes .500 or less for like 8 more years, Kubiak might get fired. Way to sock it to 'im, Bob!

    .....This team is fantastic at public relations (The ONLY thing we excel at)... What he said sounded straight like "Owner speak". It's obvious he's starting to get whiff of how upset fans are (which is why he even bothered to "politician" his way through his previous comments), but doesn't really put anyone on notice. His comments were just damage control. Damage control that isn't going to work.


    My god, I hope we don't keep Kubiak for another year. It's almost like if he can atleast get to 7-9, he'll let Kubiak keep his job.

    I didnt like everything he said......but a couple things strike me as weird

    First of all the fan base is livid.....thats apparent or he wouldnt even be talkin to the media trying to clarify his words

    Second hes pretty much saying......WE BETTER WIN THIS SUNDAY OR ELSE......which seems to be putting Kubiak on notice that we better not lose this weekend to a undrafted rookie QB

    Third when asked directly is he behind kubiak.....there was no answer of....."What would firing the coach do.....it wont make us catch passe or tackle".......he would not give him a vote of confidence....instead sayin that......"I will do whats in the best interest of the team at all times and im worried about tennesee Sunday"


    IDK but i think kubes seat just at least got a little lukewarm.....maybe not hot....but definately lukewarm

    Unfortunately, I think even 6-10......MAYBE even 5-11 he keeps his job.

    -CBA lockout

    -Extension signed

    -#1 SOS in the league this year

    -"Youth on defense"

    -"Competed in most every game and were just killed by last second gaffs"

    Above are all the selling points that Kubes and Co. will sell to keep their jobs plus McNair just doesn't pull the trigger sometimes. We need Marvin Zindler back from the grave to investigate how McNair became a billionare business man with eployees like this and not making personell changes.

    I wish I could have been a McNair employee. I guess I could just Shake Weight up and down all day in my office, do damn near nothing or eff stuff up and get the ole "Aw Shucks" from my boss and go right back to work and my paycheck the next day.

    Is Bob the type of person to talk about Gary while he still has the job? I don't know.

    Havent read the article but just to play devils advocate ..... I can see why McNair might give him another year and the reasons are numerous.


    1) The way they started the season smashing Indy in the mouth. That was encouraging.

    1) Injuries to key contributors - Barwin , Ryans , OD , AJ. The suspensions of Brown and Cushing.


    3) The youth in the secondary , we all knew there would be growing pains - just no one had a clue that it would be THIS BAD. Makes me miss "Pay Me Rick". I kinda put the blame for that move on Smith , this being an uncapped year they could have franchised him again or found a veteran CB in FA who could help these kids out.

    4) And this is the big one -There is likely going to be a work stoppage next season. There could be no season or a partial season. If it happens to be a partial season with no training camp or preseason .... what are you going to do , bring in a new coach and have him hand out a new playbook and ask the entire team to learn it in a week or ten days ? That just doesnt seem very productive to me.


    They have been in position to win almost every game and could easily be 7-3 with a few breaks here and there - The coaches get credit for that as its their job to put the players in a position to win - the players have to be held accountable too - Someone has to make a damn play , they havent done that.

    The bastard child of Ward Cleaver and Fred Rogers speaks, and it's still milquetoast.

    Gary, can you tie your shoes. Sure you can. Oh look, here's Mr. Williams. Can he sack the QB today boys and girls? No, well not today, but he tried hard and that's why he gets a gold star today. Let me get my sweater and sit beside the fireplace for a chat. Now, boys and girls our word of the day is try. As long as we try we are winners and that's all that matters. Now go get your milk and cookies, kiss your Mommy good night and say a prayer for all those big and strong football players and let them know you love them no matter what. Oh, and don't forget to tell Daddy to buy some over-priced tickets and some over-priced beer so he can watch all the guys out there who try hard every week.

    I still feel the next four to five weeks will be the deciding factor.

    (on if he is still sticking with Kubiak) “I’m concerned about winning this game against Tennessee. I always do what I think is in the best interest of this team, and that’s what motivates me. And it’s in our best interest right now to get ready and play Tennessee and go out there and win this game, and that’s what I expect us to do.”

    That doesn't sound like an endorsement to me.

    What I thought he would say.

    I don't know what else you want him to say, he speaks the truth.

    bob is such a *****. he's going to need someone to hold his hand again when it comes to a regime change.

    shit, just gather the entire team and coaching staff, tell them the playoffs is out of the picture this year but for the rest of the season EVERYONE is playing/coaching for their job next year.

    grow a ****ing set.

    Agreed....but some new coaches on Defense for next season better be non-negotiable.

    exactly.....i would go out on a limb and say if kubiak and "the kids" stumble and bumble to another loss to the titans this weekend that his seat would go from lukewarm to hot in a hurry

    then our 2 national TV games would come up and if we embarras ourselves royally in front of a national audience...which we will becuz its against philly and the ravens......I would go out on another limb and say that he could not possibly survive that kinda debacle and will be fired IMHO

    THis is a big excuse for Kubes Corrosion. These have been the same horrid mistakes for the last three years. It's always "someone has to make a play" for this team." These sound like the same excuses that people have made over and over for Yao Ming over the years and that has put the Rockets in a corner, and it's putting the Texans in a corner right now once again just like it did in the Capers era. If Mcnair brings Kubiak back for another season, he's stating that he doesn't give a damn about having a winning team and 9 years into this franchise will say enough about Mcnair as an owner. I won't root for this team under Kubes anymore. The guy's a loser, and any other franchise that had an owner that was committed to winning would have fired Kubes already with how embarrassing this team is. The fact that this team has these constant meltdowns every week and this has gone on for 3 seasons now makes this franchise and this fan base look really weak at this point for accepting it.

    I'm not sure what the complaining is about. He just said he's disappointed and that they are underachieving (which is actually saying alot).

    Did people expect him to say that everyone will be fired the day after the last game?

    Proud? :um:

    Proud of a team that can't pull it's head out if it's ass for the first half of a game? I could see using words like "encouraged" or something, but proud indicates accomplishment.

    That's just pathetic, even if it is just owner-speak. There's no accountability in those words.

    And after five freakin' years, you'd think there would be a little less patience for a coach that has not taught his team to play a full 60 minutes of football.

    See....that sounds pretty bad for Kubiak to me.

    There is a lot not being said there. I imagine that if he wasnt being political about it, that quote would have been:

    I'd fire him right now, but I’m concerned about winning this game against Tennessee.

    Seems to me that if Kubiak doesnt go out and win against Tennessee, yeah.. his seat is gonna be like lava.
