I actually am happy for Kubiak. He loves Houston and Wade Phillips will have that defense playing well again in a year or two. If Kubiak can get that defense at least serviceable he should pick up a few more games an maybe buy himself one more year.

And I'm glad we won't be hiring him.

I wasn't too enthused about having Kubiak here, but certaintly an option the Broncos FO would've been interested in taking a hard look at...

As much as I loved Kubes while he was with us, I'm not disappointed we won't be making him our HC.

I am, however, a little disappointed we won't be making Phillips our DC. I think he would have been a great fit.

I don't feel like looking it up but I wonder what the record is for consecutive years that a newbie HC didn't qualify for the PO's.

I'd be shocked if Kub's ever makes it to .500

Missed out on Wade Phillips for DC. That would have been huge to have him here running the 3 / 4 for us. Good thing Bowlen fired Josh with 4 meaningless game left so we could be ready to grab up the good hires out there as they became available.

Flounder around some more Pat

Why would Wade want to come here, where he's been fired previously, to a team that has little defensive talent when he could go to a team like the Texans?

Great hire for the Texans.

Wade has proven repeatedly he can whip a defense into shape as coordinator.

Well, Wade was fired here by the current owner so it may have been difficult for him to come back here. As for Kubiak he had 3 yrs left on his contract I think so that made him hard to fire. Also he had the O playing fairly well, Schaub has been one of the top QB's statistically the past couple years.

You are right I was living in the past when Denver was a desirable place to play and coach.

Very true but it's too bad he flunked out of clock management school....

No coach worth his salt was going to come to Denver with Josh here anyways.

Houston has alot of defensive talent Philips should be able to get them playing at a high level and their offense is pretty solid Kubes should be in the playoffs next year but they said that this year too

Can you point to one report anywhere that mentioned the Broncos had any interest whatsoever in Phillips? Not to mention Phillips probably hates Bowlen.

Go have another drink and sit this one out, old-timer.
