    I don't know if I am ready to break out the "Fire Kubes" soap bar yet, however consistently sucking in the 3rd QTR week in and week out is a sign of bad coaching. Teams are adjusting to us at halftime and we are not returing the favor. Just look at the 3rd QTR stats in most of our games.

    There are a lot of telltale signs of bad coaching.

    1. We play the same "scheme" against every opponent. We don't ever seem to gameplan to our opponent

    2. If we run the ball in one game, the next week we give up on it early. Then the next week, we'll run the ball 30 times irrespective of the score or effectiveness

    Its very frustrating

    Don't you dare.

    Don't you question the coach.

    According to 98% of the posters here, this is just your typical "growing pains" season. You need five years to evaluate, right?

    Oh, wait. That's for quarterbacks. My bad.

    How hard will it be for Rick Smith to fire Kubiak? IMO, Smith has been a good hire. Kubiak? Well, I'm doubting he's going to make it.

    I guess this means I'm not a real fan anymore. Dang it. :gun:

    I don't know about firing Kubiak just yet. We'll see how he does with a new set of assistant coaches (Sherman is going to A&M and I'm pretty sure that Richard Smith is a goner at the end of this season). If we look this bad next year, I think it would be an adequate time to pull the plug on the Kubiak project.

    Kubiak too busy bending over for the opposing HC to make adjustments.

    In all my years of watching football I have yet to understand the concept behind dropping 9 into coverage. Rushing 3 people is understandable but only rushing 2 is just inviting quarterbacks to let their play develope.

    Its hard to coach a team that is physically getting whipped at the point of attack.

    Or when your punt returner fumbles it in your own territory.

    It wasn't bad coaching that led to Boulware costing us a takeaway. Nor was it bad coaching that made Jacoby fumble a punt.

    Not to mention Weary, White and Schaub all going down with injuries. This is not a game I'm going to put on Kubiak.

    Or how about the fact that our linebackers, aside from DeMeco, can't tackle?

    The team doesn't look very well coached but at this point you have to coach a perfect game for these players to win. They mess it up at every opportunity. The major mistakes made in this game were on the players 90%.

    I had a bad feeling having Jacoby back there in wet conditions with the game on the line . I guess that's why rookies have a hard time playing on good teams .

    I'm not making a judgement but some would day bad tackling is part of coaching. I'm not sure where I stand on the team. Rigth now I'm slipping to indifference again.

    I'm stunned. No, I am shocked to the core. Somebody help me, I'm thinking I'm having a heart attack.

    Someone (besides me) is actually thinking that the players were the most responsible for losing this game??

    That's the other 10%. Those mistakes and bad tackling can be coached but you can only coach so far.

    And I would make a judgement that those people are ignorant. I never have understood the mentality of those that want to shift the blame to coaches in order to make their favorite players look good.

    You can only teach someone to tackle, can't tackle for them.

    You can only tell someone how to react in a situation, can't react for them.

    Time the players took responsibility for their own actions. Coaches call play, players execute them.

    Clearly. With insightful comments like this, so rich in analyisis and perspective, Im shocked Rick Smith has not contacted you already for a consulting job.

    Since Sherman is going to be in the NCAA this time next year I say replace him with a lovable koala to see if it does a better job than he did. If it does than we'll know he TRULY SUCKED! Or course with the Texans' luck the Koala would do a kick-@ss job and become The Raiders head coach the following season.:user:
