    New offensive Coordinator? Who would you like to see? Who do you think we'll go after?

    Kubiak is functionally the OC for the Texans. I expect to be underwhelmed by a younger, not very experienced guy.

    This would surprise me not at all actually.

    For some reason, I just don't see Sherman getting a HC job elsewhere this year, despite the rumors.

    Ask Hulk75: He gets daily faxes from Bob McNair about all the plans that are in the works.

    Seriously, though: Sherman is only a 50-50 shot, IMO, of getting a head coach job because he's only one year removed from Green Bay.

    Has he done ENOUGH to get a HC job yet? I dunno.

    BUT, there's a lot of desperate teams out there who need an experienced HC. Sherman fits that description.

    I would say that Kubiak might assume the playcalling duties, and that he'd get a QB that he could rely upon to make the proper reads at pre-snap and get us into better position at the snap if need be. I've seen way too many times of David holding his arms up with a puzzled look on his face when he came to the sideline and Kubiak wondered why he didn't make the right read or audible or whatever. However, I think Kubiak said that one of those times was his own fault and not David's. Anyways, I think it'll be Kubiak himself making the calls.

    Calhoun was not impeded from speaking with Air Force, so Kubiak IMO was not concerned with letting Calhoun explore his opportunities.

    Connecting the dots (with what I then saw in the last two games) leads me to believe that Kubiak wil be the playcaller and/or Sherman will possibly also be in on the playcalling mix a lot more if he's still here.

    Can't really see anybody out there that Kubiak and Smith would trust to do the job at this point.

    Yeah, that could be right. Seriously, who really knew who Sean Payton was a few years ago, though?

    I hope Sherman either gets a HC job. I think Kubes and him conflicted some on schemes and approaches to offense. I say this because our offense looked lost as a goose for large portions of the season.

    Honestly, that is the type of hire that I would want the Texans to make. Nothing exciting by the name, but young hopelfully bringing some fresh approaches to the offense.

    It seems like Kubiak is waiting to see if Sherman finds a job. I wouldn't be surprised if they promote from within... maybe Pariani or Shanahan.

    No. I remember the play he's talking about. Carr audibled to a reverse on a 3rd or 4th and short (iirc) and the play got snuffed. Carr came back to the sideline and Kubiak ripped him a new one. Later at the news conference, Kubiak apologized and said that Carr saw something that they shown him earlier in the week and did what they had told him to do. Kubiak took the blame for that one.

    yep, this is my take, too. From what I gather, Kubiak mainly needs someone in the booth to be his eyes from above, seeing things that he can't see at field level.
