Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak's Seat Getting Hotter and Hotter


All the Houston Texans fans have been pointing their fingers at Matt Schaub for the last few weeks, but now the fingers are now starting to point in the direction of the head coach. The Texans came into the season with a ton of expectations to compete for a Super Bowl and they have been sputtering. They hold a 2-4 record and are dangerously close to losing grips of this season.

They face the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs next week and then follow that up by facing the division leading Indianapolis Colts. They could easily continue their slide for another couple of games. They could easily be staring at 2-6 record and with all the questions at the quarterback position, there is no telling what the team could be doing in a few weeks.

Matt Schaub has struggled this year, but there are playmakers all over this roster. They have one of the best tandems at running back and they have a solid group of receivers. They have playmakers on their defense, yet they are falling short of the expectations from the start of the year.

The seat is hot. After the next couple of weeks, that seat could be boiling.

    In the business of football having a plan is key, however more coaches lose their jobs for not having good plan B. there have been plenty of resources thrown at Kubiak feet, and now the Texans are mentioned in circles for competing for a Superbowl. Matt Schaub is a good QB, but he was only a temporary solution en route to franchise QB.
    Kubiak has stuck by Schaub an TJ and has not looked anywhere else. Now when they need to, all eyes turn to where they belong, the HC, with one question, “What’s the plan now coach?” I don’t honk he has one , other than the classic, “stick together and keep plying hard speech”.
    Good luck, Coach.
