Funny how one game can change things, but we are now 1-7 in our last 8. We have known for years that we have a personnel problem in the secondary! At the beginning of the season, many prognosticators asserted Houston could not be a contender because we lost Dunta Robinson and we did nothing to fill the hole he left, let alone the hole that was already there. As a believer, I tried to ignore these guys, hoping that our awesome linebacker core could help our defense overcome our secondary problems.
In 5 years, we have not had a legitimately good defensive coordinator. We have a head coach who has never been a head coach before the Texans. We have a young GM, who has never been a GM before. It almost seems that Kubiak is afraid to bring in somebody with a proven track record because he is afraid there will be a viable candidate for his job.
So it is pretty clear that the Texans are now PITIFUL! Kubiak / Smith is clearly not an improvement over Capers / Casserly. I put this on the head of the GM. The personnel IS THE ISSUE--coaches, players, GM, and possibly owner.
If the owner is worth a crap, GM and Head Coach will be gone NOW before the end of the season! But I have a feeling that the owner is content with mediocrity. Why else is he content to hire young, inexperienced, and lackluster personnel in key positions?!
TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE, NOW! We have nothing to lose. What do we have to gain? The start of a new culture that we are unwilling to accept poor performance any longer.
Texans are a poor team from top to bottom. We are not mediocre. Mediocre teams do not go 1-7 in an 8 game stretch. We are BAD.
