Ok. I have been pondering the last few threads on Kubiak stay or go and something kept standing out. I believe I saw somewhere that Kubiak is a self-admitted micro-manager. Now as one that has worked for a micro-manager, I propose that fact alone would explain why the Texans can't get over the hump.
A few self-observed "facts" if you will,
- Kills moral
- Makes everyone in the organization under him afraid to think outside the box or even suggest an idea of their own (as in PLAY MOATS INSTEAD OF THE SCREW UP FOR CHRIST SAKE! *yes I used caps on purpose*)
- Nothing is done in the organization without being approved by said micro-manager (would explain the time it takes plays to make it onto the field, the poor clock management, the inability to make adjustments on the fly)
- Makes everyone in the organization doubt themselves
I am missing many, many more points. I can tell you though that a micro-manager makes for, at best, a mediocre organization. If Kubiak is a micro-manager, it is amazing we have improved to this point, but to go further, the Texans must have someone who can delegate and allows his assistants to assist. Kubiak is getting overwhelmed during the game, short and simple, thus the in-ability to make adjustments during half-time, much less on the fly in the middle of a quarter.
