    What if Bob doesn't want his coach to be coaching with uncertainty in 2010, and extends him beyond his current deal? Most of the time if owners want to keep their current coach on board, they won't let them go into the final year of their deal without an extension.

    (I made that last sentence up, but it's true at least some of the time... but probably not with a coach in Kubiak's situation.)

    I think Kubiak will be a very good head coach someday. It might not be with the Texans, but I do believe he will as soon as he shows signs of being able to learn from his mistakes.

    Exactly. I was just thinking that this morning. He's a smart guy, but he comes off as one of those people who just doesn't "get it."

    Hey I have no doubt that Kubiak can get into the playoffs. With enough tries...

    hell, only like 4 teams are officially out of it in the AFC, so if you hang in there long enough your bound to get in eventually.

    I wonder if Kubiak is even able to look at the standings; is he capable of glancing at all the scenarios it takes for us to make the playoffs?

    I imagine that he probably begins to look at it, but can't find the inner resolve to look at it. Cringes. Turns away and grinds his teeth, wiping a hand over his eyes.

    Such is the life for the Cowardly Lion. :lion:

    (and "Yes" I know that I am bitter right now. Probably going to last until 2011)

    Hey, it just dawned on me.

    This team DOES have a killer instinct.

    It kills our expectations every damn season.

    I'm sure he glances away when he sees the standings like he won't watch important plays or kicks of any consequence.

    I know that all of you guys's little shots at Kubiak's knowledge of the team are mostly in fun, but we should keep in mind that Kubiak probably knows more than any of us where the team is at and what it takes to get to the playoffs. Which is a miracle.

    I hear what you're saying but keep something in mind. Most teams in the NFL have been to the playoffs over the last decade. I mean, even the one and done teams have coaching staffs populated by men who know more than any of us about where their team is at and what it takes to get to the playoffs. This isn't the lost formula for greek fire or a map to El Dorado we're talking about. It's a well documented process that a large number of head coaches, assistant head coaches, coordinators, and position coaches have been a part of at one stop or another along the way.

    "Knowing" is only part of the equation. The ability to apply that knowledge in a practical manner is at least as important. Gary could watch Mike Shanahan win a dozen Super Bowls and it wouldn't do him a bit of good if he wasn't able to apply what he had hopefully learned to his own team and their circumstances/situation.

    That's what Gary Kubiak has failed to demonstrate to anyone up to this point.

    Dom Capers could say the same thing about his team, so what does that matter?

    one thing has becoming crystal clear the last few weeks...

    the "keep Kubiak at least one more season" crowd will be accepting of when and if the Texans do fire him at seasons end, than the "fire Kubiak" crowd will be if he is kept.

    Of course some of them will be more accepting. As soon as a new coach puts on a Texans jacket he'll get the benefit of the doubt in all discussions. In turn, Kubiak will be spoken about with the disdain all ex-Texans (except Charles Spencer) receive.

    For many, it seems it's more about the logo than performance.

    Oh - and he'll most likely be a better coach too. I'm optimistic the Texans can find a better than average coach and be better than average.

    19 teams currently have .500 or below records this season. Where do you believe the Texans should begin this search for this "better than average coach"? consider other teams will be searching for coaches at the seasons end as well.
