    Time to put all that coaching talk aside. At the same time, please hear me out. I understand not wanting your coach to work under basically a 1 year deal where he is a lame duck, but on the other side, what has warranted an extension? 1 winning season? Maybe a 2nd this upcoming year? Ahh it is what it is.

    Kubiak got the extension but he will still be fired next season if he doesn't improve and get this team in the playoffs. And you can bet the soap will show up on these boards quick if the Texans get off to a crappy start. No excuses next year and if the Texans make the playoffs next year with the brutal schedule they have then Kubiak will deserve to stick around. The extension was merely to keep potential free agents from getting scared off and give the coaching staff some confidence going into next season.

    I don't think this means he has as much job security as an extension may imply. Believe me, if the team went 5-11 next year he'd be fired and we'd be paying 2 head coaches for years. This, to me, is more for what McNair said, posturing in free agency and giving assistants security. We couldn't have gotten Dennison if Kubiak's situation wasn't addressed. We wouldn't be able to sign free agents to multi-year deals in free agency if they kept asking "will the HC be here in the future?"

    Yes Kubiak is being given a vote of confidence but its not a blind endorsement of his career as an HC. Really, no HC in this league has job security. Everyone is on a one year deal.

    That is the first I had heard about Ray Wright getting fired. I guess they didn't care for him too much to fire him after 1 year.

    Good points Bckey and M5K. I'll admit, I jumped since I saw extension, and was thinking, what?! But both valid points you both brought up

    The Kubiaks and their coach know he only has one more year left to prove other wise.

    Yeah this is the first I have heard about that. Wonder if they have someone in mind. I can't wait for all the feel good fluff pieces on whoever it is.:cool: Boy, our players sure sounded like they loved Ray's new regimen. Third times a charm.

    Rex Ryan handing a game ball to their S&C coach after week one couldn't have helped his chances.

    Houston, again.
    Yeah, it's kind of strange. I suspect that he may have mis-handled something, because I didn't see anything that said "Fire that guy". In fact, they seemed to have better health overall than in most of the previous years.

    "Today, I feel that I am the luckiest man on the face of the earth"

    "Except for my kid being born, this is the greatest day in the history of my life... and I just want to say one thing to my wife, who's at home. Yo Adrian, I did it! I did it!"

    Sorry. I couldn't come up with anything original to express the shear joy I'm feeling right now, so I thought I'd leave it to Lou Gehrig and Rocky Balboa.

    Really, this isn't a surprise and still doesn't take the pressure off this next year. If he loses, he is gone and they eat a couple of years. If he wins, they have him locked in.

    I think we've clearly shown here on Texans Talk that we can argue over nothing at all if the situation calls for it.

    We should be good until something else comes up.

    If Kubes is getting an extension until 2013, he probably has to go Capers in order to get the axe next year. Unlike players coaches money is normally guaranteed in the NFL. If I saw a one or two year thing, then, I would accept that Kubiak is playoffs or bust, but I am not buying that McNair is going to just pay good ole Gary four years of pay for 1 year of work w/o it being obvious that he made a huge mistake. (See extending Carr).

    Holy shit.

    My first season ticket payment is due in a few weeks. McNair wants more of my cash for this mediocre coach?

    *******k him. If they want to look at a successful coach in four years, give Sean Payton a call.

    Don't get too smug now. At the end of the day, your boy Kubiak will likely lead his team to 8-8 next year.

    Extension or not, a shitty coach is a shitty coach.

    Is there anyway we can keep him for next season, see how he does THEN extend him? I have a bad feeling that once he gets his extension he will fall flat on his ass and we might end up 6-10 or something....hope this doesn't happen.


    What I think of Kubes = :splits: + :scarygirl: + :pissed:

    That's exactly what's going to happen. He's going to get complacent, sit on his butt, ignore the division games, bring us to 7-9, and say "It's all on me."

    So what was Kubiak supposed to say to Dennison? Come coach for a year with me in Houston, move your family and risk your coaching reputation on a lame duck year with me? The only way to attract coaches AND keep the ones on your own staff is to offer security. On paper this will provide that security. But then again anything on paper can be changed or ripped up (although you still have to pay the contract).
