    I think this is what's most frustrating to me. All of us armchair quarterbacks know that sometimes you have to run to set up the pass, and clamored for Kubiak to pass to set up the run once we saw how ineffective the running game was in the first quarter of the season. The Texans almost abandoned the run entirely starting in the second half of the Cardinals' game moving the ball by passing it rather than do something that wasn't working as well.

    However, any good Madden gamer will tell you that you don't change what's working until the other team stops it. The Triplets-era Cowboys would pass to set up the run and vice versa, but if Emmitt was cooking, they'd keep pounding it until the teams stopped it. When they over-loaded to stop the run, they'd hit the passing game.

    Why let the other team off the hook when you have them beat? That's the biggest head scratcher to me. You don't need to be cute and go for 50/50 (run/pass). If you're up and can bleed the clock and move the ball by running for 5 yards a pop, you do that until they put 8 or 9 in the box and then go up top. It's too hard to get away from the run, start airing it out, and then try and go back to it later. Confidence and momentum are both with the other team now, and when you can't get your running game back, you lose your biggest weapon - the play action pass.

    No I am saying that the inexperience of Coach Kubiak and his style of coaching do not mix well with this team. I was stating the fact that Cowher would get the best out of these boys because of the respect he demands and would get. Texans looked like they just gave up in the second half, they always have a let down and that has something to do with other coaches out coaching ours.

    Maybe the Texans could, for once in their mediocre existence, could actually get a coach that is not super-boring vanilla. Watching Kubiak, or, even worse, Capers, explain monotonously why they can't win is utterly uninteresting.

    That way the press conferences after the latest agonizing loss could at least feature a Herman Edwards/Dennis Green/Jim Mora-esque tirade and be a bright spot.

    LOL Agreed. Kubiak is worse than Capers imo. At least Capers didn't sigh all the time.

    If we are going to suck I definitely want a "THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!" or "IF YOU WANNA CROWN THEIR ASS, GO AHEAD!" or "YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!" or even a "PLAYOFFS?"

    How awesome would it be if during the Gary Kubiak show next week when one of the idiots on 610 asks him about their playoff chances, Kubes went "Playoffs?" in that dry Texas tone?

    I'll take Dungy or Fisher, and they are boring as heck to listen to.
