    Sounds like he wants to be a head coach again to me.

    When I first heard Wade had taken the job here as DC after being fired from his Dallas HC job, one thing came to mind.

    He thinks Kubes will likely get fired soon and will be able to move up to the HC spot. You would have to be a fool to not think that talk didn't come up while McNair was interviewing Wade for the DC job.

    Little did he know, by helping improve our defense, he has secured Kubes future here for at least another year.

    I know Wade did not mean it this way, but yeah, it does sound like he'd like Gary's job. I thought the above quote was just funny in a devious-in-my-mind sort of way.

    I hope we see a Gary/Wade coached team for at least another 3-4 years based on this season. Keep adding players and experience, and anything can happen.

    Oh, I bet Kubes gets more than one year.:chef:

    Can't have a Kubes without a Wade. I hope Wade will give it at least another year to get a SB ring and I think they can do it with both coaches at the head and some healthy players.

    Phillip's calming influence has really helped Kubes this year well, the whole team actually but you can tell the difference in the play calling, time management - all sorts of ways. When Wade was gone, Kubiak reverted to his old ways faster than you could say gall bladder. The bottom line is that we need Wade.

    Two guys running a business with a third guy working the banks and connections as silent partner. you see it work all the time as long as they respect one another and tolerate one another's idiosyncrasies. Wade can run operations for a few years while Gary runs sales. Bob is the silent partner.

    If the two operating partners don't produce the bottom line results, switch positions and reload. That would be so cool. McNair is a pretty good businessman. He understands corner office bullies don't survive. Low key hard workers always have a job.

    I would be curious to know when this interview was done. It seems to me the media is trying to sabotage us bringing this crap up now. Trying to make it sound like he is concentrating more on becoming a head coach than on winning this year.

    Why else would they be bringing this up now?

    Bad timing... really bad timing.

    This (the bolded) ^^^^^ I'm reminded of something Bill Worrell says a lot: "If the right hand don't get you, the left one will!"

    BTW, while Wade might entertain another HC job, I think it speaks volumes that "Daddy" aka O.A."Bum" Phillips will be leading the Texans on the field Saturday!

    Team Wary (heh, not as negative as it once was, huh?) will stay here and win a Super Bowl then let Bum hoist this --> :trophy: during the victory parade down Kirby.

    Any bets on what kind of raise Wade receives if he remains here?

    Solution? Make Wade the highest paid D coordinator. I would love to have Wade as a Jim Johnson the rest of his years in the league here in Houston.

    I think he's already the highest paid defensive coordinator.

    Wade deserves another shot as an NFL head coach. He won't get one. That has more to do with the NFL mindset than Wade's abilities.

    Wade is the head coach of the Texan defense just like Kubiak is the head coach of the offense. In this age of specialization, what the Texans need now is a head coach of clock management. All bases would be covered.
