    should be considered a top contender for Coach of the Year. The only other serious contenders right now should be Mike Mcarthy, for obvious reasons, and Jim Harbaugh.

    I know everyone in here wants to give all the credit to Wade... but unfortunately, he's not eligible to win.

    If Denver wins out, I'd put Fox in the conversation as well.

    The reason I'd give Kubiak the nod over anyone else (besides Mcarthy) is none of those other teams had to deal with the injuries the Texans have had to deal with. So many times we could have folded and had valid excuses to lose, but there's no quit in this team!

    I wouldn't give it to Gary because I hate him. LOL

    Seriously, I would give it to Fox. He changed his entire offense midseason to fit what Tebow does best. They're on a roll.

    Jim Harbaugh for sure. He took a 6-10 team and turned them into a 10-2 team so far, and I expect them to be at least 12-4 at the end of the season. Kubiak winning the award would be laughable as he hasn't really done anything different this year, it's defense that changed the culture of the organization.

    True, but honestly Wade deserves the most credit. The attitude of that defense has spread to the entire team. They have everyone believing now.

    OK, everyone but Kubiak considering he still can't watch the crucial plays. :kitten: ;)

    Edit: See Dutch's post above. He said better what I was trying to say.

    Jim Harbaugh is the coach of the year. Kubiak deserves recognition, mainly due to Wade Phillips' tremendous turnaround of the defense.

    Who chooses the winner? Is that a sportswriter thing? Or is it the other coaches?

    Kubiak may have the upper hand depending on who chooses. He seems like a really well-liked person. Harbaugh---not so much.

    McCarthy should certainly get it if the Pack goes undefeated.

    Absolutely no way Kubiak should win coach of the year. And please stop posting unfinished thread titles.

    Wade Phillips will be the primary reason why Kubiak doesn't win it.

    I'm thrilled Gary is doing well.

    How was the MB raped?

    What's with the cursing?

    This is Wade's team. It is Wade's season. He did this.

    However, I have been impressed with how Kubiak has handled the QB disaster. He doesn't appear to be panicking, and seems to be methodically, and calmly, pushing ahead, doing what he has to do to win. Kubiak seems confident.

    But, guess why he's confident? Because we have a solid defense. Guess who is in charge of that?

    Get it?

    agree with you.

    The titles that try to leave you hanging are pretty bogus. Just state the title, don't try to make it a cliff hanger. It just ends up being a dingleberry instead.

    I agree. I'm trying to curb my own cussing (on here AND in real life). I'd never been a cusser until the past year, now it's getting out of hand. I think it's because of me being a Texans fan--I'm worn down and had gotten potty mouth syndrome due to the anxiety of it all. LOL.

    Nobody's stealing your victory dance. Continue to party on in whatever fashion you desire.

    The conversation is about IF Kubiak deserves Coach of The Year or not.

    I happen to weigh in with the opinion that Harbaugh taking the reins as a first-year NFL coach, doing something positive with Alex What's His Name at QB--when other coaches have NOT been able to--and romping through the NFL like Tebow on the white horse of the Apocalypse is worthy of Coach of the Year.

    McCarthy would be 2nd, due to somehow being undefeated when most Super Bowl teams regress the next year.

    Kubiak in 3rd.

    How's THAT for peeing on your parade? j/k, don't be mad at me....

    Wade does deserve more of the glory for this team's turn around, but the award does only go to a head coach, and I would have to give it to Kubiak over everyone else due to the amount of bad injuries the Texans have suffered and yet we're 9-3. I think the way we've battled through the adversity as a team has been more impressive than any other team.

    I can't believe I"m saying this, but right now I'd give it to Gary Kubiak.

    I have to give credit where it's due this year, and I've wanted Gary to make me say this for years. Finally there has been a regular season that he can hang his hat on. I do realize that it's been mainly due to Wade Phillips, but he is still the HC of this team and that is who the award goes to. I'd take Harbaugh first, but the Niners haven't dealt with anything close to what the Texans have injury wise and we're still on a winning streak. We're over achieving and I like it. :bravo:
