    Assume we got the head coach of your dreams to replace Gary Kubiak for the 2010 season. Doesn’t really matter who he is, for this poll the only thing that matters, is that we got the guy you wanted.

    Do you expect him to get us to the play-offs his first year? Or does he get a pass for the first year?

    What exactly is your definition of getting a pass?

    Very interesting question. I think we are ready for playoffs and our new coach needs to get us there right away.

    The sole purpose of getting rid of Kubiak would be to get a coach who CAN get us into the playoffs so I'd expect it next year without a doubt

    2012, cause the new guy will have to rebuild. Not to mention injuries. Oh yeah, black jesus will be born again, peyton is still here, and jax is still tougher then us.

    if we get a new coach, he has to get us into the playoffs next season, or I:

    a) break out the Pink Soap
    b) raise funds for a billboard expressing fan unhappiness
    c) not renew my tickets
    d) write letters vainly to the front office
    e) label new coach "flatliner" if he doesn't froth at the mouth at penalties
    f) question, rehash, and review each play that doesn't result in a touchdown

    If Gary Kubiak is here next year, & we don't get to the play-offs, it doesn't matter what the reason, we (the fans) will want him gone. Like many here already want him gone.

    If we get a new head coach next year, & we don't get into the play-offs, will we want him gone as well?

    '06 3-3
    '07 1-5
    '08 2-4
    '09 1-5

    Those are our division records for the last four years. We just can't beat
    teams who see our cute offense twice a year. Do you see improvement in
    that record?

    That's one area the Texans have been consistent in, and while they remain
    consistent in that area, they'll NEVER make the playoffs! You can't go
    2-4, 1-5 every year in your division, and be a playoff team. It just can't
    happen! Losing close ain't progress, folks. Kubiak has had a DIRECT hand
    in this team's losing big games. EVERY GAME that "mattered" this season, with
    the most talent we've ever had, we've LOST in AMAZING FASHION. Even
    Sterling Sharpe gets annoyed when he has to predict a winner in a Texans'
    game. This team DOES have promise, but our coaches get cute when being
    smart will do! The HB Option was just the last straw that broke Kubiak's
    Coming Back to the Texans. Grandpa Bob will be watching how the home
    fans react to Gary, so he'd BETTER put on a good show in the next two
    home games!

    Dude, come on. that's ridiculus. Of course we won't get rid of a new coach if he doesn't get us to the playoffs next year.

    You want an excuse to say we should keep Kubiak one more year. You seem to forget that Kubak has had four years.

    FOUR.

    our schedule next year is going to be tougher, potentially 5 play-off teams from the previous season

    NFC East (Eagles, Cowboys, Giants, Skins)
    AFC West (Chargers, Broncos, Raiders, Chiefs)

    I'm not forgetting anything.

    It is my contention, that year 5 & 6 of Kubiak will be better than year 1 & 2 of a new regime.

    A lot of people didn't think Richard Smith would finally get the axe either but he did. I have confidence that Kubiak has already sealed his fate.

    Nope. I have the ear of several season ticket holders, and we are not playing around this year.

    Your logic is ridiculus. If we have a better year 3 and 4 from a new regime, it would have WELL been worth it.

    Year 5 and 6 of Kubiak will be 8-8 and 8-8.
