    If this is all true...

    I think the Tacks are fooling themselves if they think they need to fire Munch now so they can "get ahead" of the Texans for first choice.

    Anyone choosing Possum Holler while still a Texans candidate would have to have his decision-making called into question. [​IMG]

    Lol. That's a Bud Adams-ish move. He was always looking over his shoulder nervously at the Texans.

    Aren't they technically still in the hunt for a wild card spot?

    Regardless, no way they could compete with us for top coaches. The job here is much, much better than that one.

    Bud Adams is no longer there, who knows what that franchise is thought of?

    I always thought munchak as the HC was an odd choice but I'd love munchak and Matthews in heartbeat to whip the few OL that deserve a job here.

    i would definitely believe they're targeting kubiak, but i HIGHLY doubt that he would want to go to tennessee. remember this is a guy that reportedly turned down offers as a coordinator in denver before coming to houston. i cant imagine him wanting to uproot and go to tennessee.

    Munchak never had that strong of a chance to turn that team around. Wasn't the best coaching gig for him to take. Like many coaches in the past, he never had an adequate QB to work with. I thought he did alright considering what the Titans had to work with, but I didn't think he would last that long either. I'd love to have that guy as an Oline coach.

    I don't see any reason why not. There are only 32 of those jobs.

    Though, my money is on him taking a year off for health reasons before looking to come back.

    Drafting Locker has hurt Munch in a big way. Hiring a lot of his buddies to coach might've hurt him a bit too.

    Exactly. I see him taking the year off and making sure his health is in check to. When the opportunity comes, he will want to be a head coach again and no reason that couldn't happen in Tenn.

    Taking a year off is a rarity for NFL coaches - one pretty much limited to those who know they have the cache to have offers when they get back. That's true even though they are often owed money from their old employer so not making anything significant by going to a new job. I doubt Kubiak turns down an OC gig of college HC gig unless it is a horrible situation.

    Both Munchack and Matthews will be free if they implode that staff. Both class, class guys. I'd love to have them here coaching the line....but that's putting the cart way in front of the horse at this point.

    I seriously doubt anyone is going to be giving Kubiak a HC job any time soon. Most know that he should not have lasted as long as he did here.

    At this point I am not even sure he is still a good OC since everything he does is becoming more and more dated and ineffective.

    If ever a team needed an enema when it comes to their coaching staff, man do the Texans and Titans have something in common. Munchak was handed a ton of talent this year, but was so in over his head, it was downright comical. Yes Locker got hurt, but there is talent at every position. He can't manage a game, doesn't know how to challenge plays, and tries way too hard to play the emotionless CEO card. It was a terrible hire to begin with, but part of a 40 year run of mosly sad choices by a bad franchise.

    Seriously, when Jeff Fisher is looked at as the best the franchise ever had, that o me shows how futile its been.

    When you say franchise do you mean the Tennessee titans? Or are the Oilers history included.

    If it does include the Oilers, the person(s) saying such things is psycho. I'm not sure he'd even be top 5.

    I apologize in advance if I misread
