Aggies knew what was coming... but yeah - contracts mean very little. I think Sumlin would have been on the short list, but not now. They may send something brief his way, but they won't work too hard.

I think part of the reason for the firing NOW... is to see what Wade Phillips does. He is a possible choice also.

OK - I just heard that in last night's post game conference that Kubiak hinted at starting Schaub for the next game.

That had to be the last straw. Ownership wants to see Keenum. Period. They were probably pissed that Schaub came in last night.

Ownership making player personnel decisions? Who does McNair think he is? Jerry Jones? Is he unaware of how poorly that's working out for the Cowboys?

He's not doing it publicly... I just know. And it is only in this case that I am aware of.

Obviously Kubiak was making his own decisions on the fly.

I still think Keenum can work with a different system and coach. I'm glad Kubes is gone since this will give the Texans time to interview a new coach and hire him in order to get a new coaching regime in place rather than wait till offseason. I also think it is time for Wade Phillips to go, but then again, he will likely be gone when a new coach comes in and assembles his own staff. Right now, McNair said he wanted to talk to Lovie Smith.

Always easier to fire a coach than the whole team.

When I said he had plenty of rope... ^^this.

Special Teams Coach Joe Marciano (with Texans since 2002) also fired today.

I think Mcnair wants to see what Keenum has, so he knows if he has to use their 3rd #1 overall pick on another QB. I've said before, I wouldn't mind if they retooled the line first. When that went away that when the running and protection went south.

Ticket sales and attendance. Since the season is lost anyway, fans have less incentive to show up. Putting in Phillips and removing Kubiak shows that Bob McNair is listening to the fanbase.
