    Kubiak is has joined the .500 Club.

    Congratulations, Gary Kubiak. You now merit being called an
    "average coach."

    kinda unfair, this team has had an offense that could win championships for a few seasons.

    Your sig sure does look better now.
    I was thinking the same about Kube's record, but didn't want to bring bad karma or anything.

    I guess Gary gets no credit for winning with a 3rd string QB .....

    I have no problem with people giving credit to Wade Phillips. The turnaround this defense has done this year is incredible. :wild:

    46-46. Kubes was at .500 three times last year before the disastrous 2-8 finish.... He's never been over .500, though...

    I think Kubiak's record accurately reflects what kind of HC he's been thus far. His offenses have been very potent and his defenses have sucked. And make no mistake, his defenses have sucked because of Gary Kubiak. He delegated, he hired Richard Smith and Frank Bush, and he signed off on the draft picks.

    We have two excellent coordinators for a change. I'm still waiting to see if Kubiak grows into the HC position. There aren't too many mediocre coaches in the NFL that get the opportunity to hang onto a gig this long and grow into the job.

    You are too kind. Considering the talent and opportunties he's still just Kubes. I think an average coach could have done more with what he's had to work with.

    I think Kubiak should win Coach of the Year. Because I know he'll do the right thing and give the award to Wade.

    I agree with you but the east/west coach bias is strong. West Coast Harbaugh will get it this year.

    To me, today's win was a special milestone for Kubiak because we can finally say that The Texans beat a good team BECAUSE of Kubiak's head coaching (yes, I know Wade deserves a lot of credit also).

    Reasons why Kubiak's coaching won this game:

    -had a rookie 5th round QB fully coached up and ready to play effectively
    -had an offensive gameplan for the rookie QB that perfectly balanced security with aggression and unpredictability
    -aggressive late 4th down call in the red zone that all but won the game
    -team answered falcon's game-tying drive with a killer 10-minute TD drive that featured all the good things kube's offense can do
    -texans out-toughed a good, tough team in the 4th quarter (would have been better had it been on the road, but still)
    -didn't step on his dick with that late, would-be challenge
    -team had only 5 penalties (none of which seemed particularly egregious to my memory), and 1 "turnover"

    Perhaps most impressive to me was the Texans second or third drive of the game (the one that ended with the Yates "fumble"). After starting out the game running, Kubiak called 4 or 5 Yates play-action passes in a row, many of which were down the field. To me, it was obvious then that Kubiak was prepared to go out and take this game rather than hope to pull one out with wade's d and the running game (with a few kubiak golden oldies like halfback passes and end-arounds thrown in)

    Kubiak had his 3rd string qb ready. He threw the red flag at the right time and held it when he should of held it. His gamble in the forth quarter paid off with a td instead of 3 points, which kept us from going into ot. All things we sometime ***** at Kubiak for doing wrong some weeks he did right this week. This win more than any other since he has been here was his.

    Coach Gary Kubiak said the team had NO plans to draft a quarterback, but couldnÂ’t pass on Yates. That was a great decision, today proved that.
