    We will never win. EVER. We are the Chicago Cubs of the NFL. Someone walked into our stadium with a goat and cursed us forever.

    Not cursed at all. The team sucks because Gary Kubiak did not hire a competent defensive coordinator.

    Nah - the Kubiak regime is one that was of 'yes men.' For instance, lying about being able to save Carr to get the job. They're all good buddies and cover each other's asses. They need to clean house and put someone in charge who a) will say back off McNair, you hired me to save this franchise I'll do what I want I don't care who you had over for Thanksgiving dinner and b) will fire someone when they suck.

    This is not a cursed team. A team that does not understand how to win.

    Gotta agree. But as Kubiak likes to say, "it is on me" Easy decision here make a change. The NFL is very COMPETITIVE and one play CAN make a difference contrary to what others on this board say, coaching can make a difference. THIS TEAM IN NOT CURSED IT IS POORLY LED in all areas.

    The NFL has so much parity that I cannot see a team being the the Chicago Cubs of the NFL.

    I think we just aren't that good right now.

    I would have liked to have seen us atleast maintain our effectiveness in many areas, but instead we have mostly regressed all over the place.

    As a Houston fan.. we should all be pretty immune to having our hearts ripped out by now. This is par for the course. The Football Gods have taken a massive dump on us, as fans, once again.

    They don't just need to change coordinators but everything including Rick and especially any consultants they have on hand.

    Unfortunately as we saw with the Oilers, it starts from the top. Unless Bob McNair changes I don't think anything is going to change for the better.

    I really learned a lot this week watching a documentary on Bill Parcells on the NFL Network. Bob McNair really needs to watch that 1 hour piece on Parcells. Maybe it will clue him in on how to run a successful NFL franchise.

    Kubiak's a good coach. He's a terrible evaluator of other coaching talent, though. The ONLY way I'd be willing to accept Kubiak staying another season is if McNair forces a firing of the defensive staff and forces a hiring of the defensive staff HE wants (like Bud Adams did to Pardee with bringing in Buddy Ryan and then Jeff Fisher - worked out well for that franchise, don't you think?)

    Your 2nd sentence contradicts the 1st.

    I would be ok with that. Get rid of the entire defensive staff and start over.
    I could understand if McNair cleans house with the coaching staff though. Even with Kubes not being a defensive guy, he has to be responsible for the guys he brings in.

    Calling it a curse is like aiming at a picture when you have the guy you want standing right next to it.
