    When do you guys think Wade Phillips will become the texans head coach?
    I think it's obvious that if Kubes has another year like the last 5, Phillips will be the obvious choice. He's the perfect man for the local PR machine that is the Houston Texans.

    Where's the option: McNair will let Kubiak play out 2011.

    Never. If Wade is doing a good enough job to look like he deserves another shot at HC then the Texans will be doing well enough that Kubiak won't be fired.

    Oh, I disagree. There have been enough instances of slow starts and poor halftime adjustments on O that if the D significantly improves and the O becomes suspect, I can see this happening at any stage of the season. More realistically towards or at the end of the season, but happeing nonetheless.

    They would have to have a pretty good turn around on defense next season if there is one.

    Philips outweighs Kubiak by orders of magnitude in Houstons eyes. Phillips is the Son Of Bum. Kubiak went to A&M. Not much competition, from a PR standpoint. If the D turns aound and the O struggles, I think it's a done deal. Kind of like when Reeves was hired before Capers was fired, only for real. LOL

    The O would have to regress and I don't see that barring an injury issue.

    Poor halftime adjustments on O? - the complaint about last year was slow starts. Seems like the halftime adjustments worked.

    The bigger complaint was only playing one half. We put together very few complete games. We were consistently outcoached in second halfs last season.

    I don't know whether or not McNair would do something like that...

    I'm leaning towards "he'd just let them play out the season and if they suck, fire everyone", but I on the other hand I would not be surprised if McNair found some reason to keep Wade...

    Repeating what I've said before: Wade will become head coach mid to early November.

    NFL owners no longer care about swapping coaches mid-season. As we've seen, once one owner does it, others will as well.

    E. None of the above because A) the season doesn't happen -or- B) the Texans win the Super Bowl only to have an asterick placed next to it, because of a shortened season.... :kitten:

    I think McNair keeps Kubiak through the 2012 season, the end of his contract, and then replaces him after it, possibly with Phillips.

    This would be consistent with BoB's way of doing business.

    If Kubes does bad enough to lose his job, McNair is going to clean house again.
