Guess the texans are interested in him and I'm not as dumb as you all think


That still doesn't make it a good idea, which is really what we're all taking issue with here.


Bingo, hiring Ken would be a stupid decision for this franchise


also, we hired Jed Hughes to assist in the search for the next head coach. Not sure how I feel about that, any inside to this guy

Consulted for the Jets on the Idzik hire and USC on their Sarkisian hire.

Preparing for bitter disappointment.

Yeah, I know. At the end of the day though it was still Pat Haden's call and everyone knows how much he loves former USC assistants.

on Jed Hughes


Quote:
Among his high profile placements are Mark Murphy, CEO of the Green Bay Packers; Larry Scott, Commissioner of the Pac-12 Conference; and Brady Hoke, who last week restored football glory to the University of Michigan by guiding the Wolverines to a Sugar Bowl victory. Other premier sports organizations that Jed has conducted searches for include the United States Olympic Committee, Ladies Professional Golf Association, PGA of America, Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns, Arsenal Football Club, Liverpool Football Club, Ohio State University, ATP Tour, and Women’s Tennis Association.

I don't get all the hatred for Whisenhunt. Everyone loves cower and Whisenhunt is one of his understudies. He has coached in 2 Super Bowls and built a pretty good team in Arizona that couldn't ever get a decent QB. They got a decent one in Palmer and are now seeing the benefits of it.

If our options are Whisenhunt David shaw, lovie smith and wade Phillips then Whisenhunt would be right up there with Shaw in my book

I'd be happy with Whis, never got a fair shot in Zona with scrub QB's.

He's the one who chose to run with Kevin Kolb as his guy, so I don't think he would know a non-scrub QB to begin with.

Well, maybe if we hand him Bridgewater it will be a perfect storm; a GM giving him as close as there's been aside from Luck to a sure thing at QB and a coach who has gotten Philip Rivers back to a high level of play and been in charge of some extremely high powered offenses, who comes from a coaching circle likely to yield a DC who will keep the team in a 3-4 but actually introduce some variety and diversity to his playcalling.

Whisenhunt wouldn't get me excited, but there are worse candidates out there.

This is what i love about Kubiak, he is a class act, he never blames anyone, he refuses to talk negative about players to the media...if our next coach is half the guy Kubiak is then we are on the right track

This is PROFESSIONAL sport. I hope our next coach is twice the coach Kubiak was. You don't get W's for being a nice guy.

This was part of the problem. There was zero accountability for anyone here.

If Matt throws three INTs, including a pick six: It's on me.
When Steve Slaton would fumble on back-to-back drives: That's my fault, this kid is trying hard...
If Randy misses three FGs: I didn't do a good enough job.
If Kevin Walter drops a crucial 3rd down conversion: That's not on Kevin, he blocked well the whole day...
If the defense allows four scoring drives of 80+ yards: They fought hard, but it's my fault...
If Special Teams is their usual incompetent self: Special Teams was battlin out there...

It's nice he didn't throw anyone under the bus ALL the time, but hold SOMEONE accountable for their mistakes. I've seen High School head coaches hold their players more accountable than Kubiak, and Kubiak is in charge of 53 professional athletes. If he's got the urge to coddle them and protect them from the bad men and women who want to say they didn't play well, then he should go down a few notches and coach High School ball.

These were men he was coaching, and he treated them like children, even down to the point of assessing blame. That is never a good thing.
