i guess losing to the Jags twice in three weeks will do that to you.

 

any chance he catches on somewhere else?

How did the Texans go from so good to so bad so fast?  That's crazy.

Not at all surprising. They are loaded with talent, even with a decent QB they should be heading to the playoffs right now.

Gary Kubiak is no longer the Houston Texans’ head coach after nearly eight seasons.Texans have an 11 game losing streak

that's what blows my mind. going into week three they looked like the same perennial high-octane contenders in the AFC

Well,they started the season with two wins then the shakiness at the QB  position, along with injuries to TE Owen Daniels, S Danieal Manning, LB Brian Cushing and RB  Arian Foster helped to cripple to club,leading to an elven game losing streak.

 

This paved the ouster of  HC Gary Kubiak  who had a  61-64 record, with a 2-2 mark in the postseason.

The injuries to Cushing and Foster were big, and Daniels is good too... but I still don't see this epic collapse just from that.

if you have no QB, you have no chance in the NFL, no matter how wondrous a coach you are. Schaub has been a productive and playoff-worthy QB in this league, and Kubiak  seemed helpless to restore Schaub's game and stabilize Houston's rapidly sinking season. It would be ironic if Kubiak was hired in large part because he knew his way around the game's most pivotal position, and then was fired because he couldn't fix the fatal flaws of his own starter, dragging down his entire team in the process.

 

The immensely talented but woefully underachieving Houston  team had sprung multiple leaks and sank lower and lower, with problems that involved more than just shaky quarterbacking. For starters, what happened to the Texans' once-dominant defense that coordinator Wade Phillips had breathing fire for most of the past two seasons? Like Kubiak, Phillips as a head coach in Denver, Buffalo and Dallas often struggled to stop the bleeding once his teams started losing. The problem-solving skills of both coaches had left a lot to be desired this year.

 

But when the sky starts falling, that's exactly when a coach is expected to find solutions and execute some season-saving maneuvers that help his team find its way out of its funk. The best ones figure out how to get the losing streak stopped, and start piecing the puzzle back together as quickly as possible.Undoubtly Kubiak couldn't do that.

I mean, I agree that the coaching has to be the root of their issues... despite the injuries, they had talent.

Can see Houston going QB in the NFL Draft. It makes me nauseous, but I'm rooting for Atl against GB. They need to be out of the Clowney sweepstakes. Several teams are stuck at 3 wins, Tampa included.

I never honestly thought Kubiak was that great a head coach.
