    John Clayton tosses Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden and Jeff Fisher's names out there after the disappointing loss to the Raiders.

    Wow, that didn't take long. I wonder if they see this three game losing streak we're working on & think better of McNair to live through that again without doing something.

    No AJ , No MW .... a game dominated by the Raiders DL .... and the Texans were a missed FG by Rackers away from winning 26-25 instead of losing 25-20 ..... but lets blame Kubiak.

    Losing to the Raiders at home...something playoff teams really shouldn't do. probably

    The Packers seemed to do OK last year after missing key players. I'm not calling this team the Packers, but I didn't see those guys making any excuses. All they did was step up and win.

    That's it, it's over pack it in boys. The fat lady has sung its all over five games in to the season. We've lost to a top five team in the Saints, and an up and coming inspired team, wow we outta just give up now.


    This is F-ing B*llsh*t, we are five games in to the season, if the season were over right now with our winning percentage we'd be 10 and 6, so until we are 5 and 7 I'm not gonna panic.

    COME ON MAN!!! These pundits are douche nozzles.

    Ask Bob McNair if he really cares what John Clayton tosses out.

    The coaching change speculation goes hand in hand with the playoff speculation. Each year we are picked to make the playoffs, and each year we are expected to make a coaching. Just the media being the media. Picking both sides so they can be right 100% and say I told you so.

    Still too early for this speculation. I mean, we havent even had the yearly 3 game losing streak or hit the yearly 5-7 mark yet!

    You're right...lets re-sign him to a life long contract. After all when you're a head coach in the national football league who in their right mind actually cares about on the field results. Nothing is ever his fault.

    This goes beyond the Raiders game, it's his knack that no matter what happens with this team, they always find a way to lose games instead of finding ways to win them and in this league you're judged by wins only. Fair or not. Injuries aren't a excuse for him.

    and the Defense held the Raiders to under 200 passing and McFadden to 51 yards rushing.

    I can't wait for Cowher to show up here. I give it about a season and a half before you guys claim you never wanted him.

    At least at that point we won't further suffer the Cowher cult of personality as he will be brutally exposed without a world class GM like he had in Pitt.

    Why do fans want McNair to hold onto Kubiak so bad? So many teams in the NFL have changed regimes and have had much more success than Kubiak can ever dream of. The team is the same as always. Raiders game showed a lot.

    We make the playoff's, he stays. We miss the playoff's, he goes. No use cramping up your fingers typing about it untill one of those things happens.
