    "It's on me"

    To be honest, I think Kubiak called a pretty good game today. The players on the field simply didn't execute.

    My biggest disappointment in this game were on the receivers. Too many dropped balls today. Probably the worst game I've seen AJ play ever.

    All that lack of concentration, as we've seen ALL YEAR LONG, falls on the
    head coach. Kubiak is responsible for the culture HE CREATED. When that
    culture doesn't produce WINNING, it's HIS HEAD.

    I'm specifically talking about today's game only. By no means am I a Kubiak supporter.

    I just think if the Texans receivers make the catches they're supposed to make, Texans would have won this game. This includes Foster's "non-catch" in the end zone.

    If you think Kubiak caused this loss, please explain.

    I thought he called a pretty good game offensively. We rode Foster throughout the first half, and went to a very successful passing attack in the 2nd half after they made adjustments. We put up a lot of points against the statistically ranked #1 defense in the NFL

    Nobody "caused" this loss. It's damn rare when a player actually "causes" a loss (Rosencopter comes to mind). But lots of people contributed, including Kubiak.

    He put together the crappy defense that gave up 29 points.

    True... but I'm specifically talking about this game only.

    We know the defense is going to give up alot of points, so I thought Kubiak had a good game plan to run, run, then run so more to keep Rivers on the sidelines. Chargers made the appropriate adjustments at the half, and the Texans adjusted as well to go to more of a passing attack...which the Chargers couldn't stop either.

    But the Jones drop in the end zone, Foster's non-catch in the end zone, and AJ's knee kick in the end were very big plays the receivers need to make. Not to mention numerous other drops receivers made.

    I don't buy it. Yeah Kubes had a nice gameplan to try and control the clock, but that shouldn't be necessary! The offense shouldn't have to hold onto to the ball all damn day and pray that the defense gets a three and out every once in a while. If we just had a semi-competent defense, this team could be very good, but no, we have to hope our offense puts up 30+ week in and week out.

    5 yrs is enough time...I think we've seen the best of Kubiak...and it's not good enough.

    It's the coach.
    It's the players.
    It's the coach.
    It's the players.

    And on, and on, and on, and on ...................

    All of you have one of those ideas ingrained into your thoughts.

    Question: If he does say, "It's on me" What's wrong with that?

    What do you want him to say? Something like "All of you can go xxxx yourselves"!, ... or ... "All of you can lick the darkest part of my lily-white ass!"???

    I kinda wish he would say that. I'd laugh my ass off.

    Yeah, I knew Bush better be damn good when Kubiak didn't even interview anybody. He haas to lose his job on that alone, since they have sigle handedly built the worst defense I've ever seen.

    If we had The Chin as head coach and his players were dropping passes all day like they were, there would be spittle flying all over the place and asses getting chewed out. Kubiak probably rounded them up for a group hug.

    I would really love for him to say that.
    I would also love him to tell John McClain that he doesn't know ******* about football.

    What I hope is that he tells the players how much they suck behind closed doors and how they need to play better, but somehow I don't think he does that.
