Fans organizing a “Fire Gary Kubiak” rally

Gary Kubiak

The Texans have an underrated fanbase.  They are knowledgeable, passionate, and generally as supportive as any fans considering the franchise’s lack of success.  (I’d rank them below Green Bay for blind positivity.)

The disastrous 2010 Texans season, though, has tested their faith.  A few fans have decided to organize a “Fire Gary Kubiak Rally” before Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.

Kubiak has handled the news with his usual grace and even this gesture was made with some respect.

“I want to stress that I don’t want people to come out to bash Kubiak,” said organize Brad White, via a fan blog on the Houston Chronicle.   “We don’t want vulgar signs out there. We’re not there to bash him. We’re there to say that we want a change.”

The rally probably isn’t necessary.  By all accounts in Houston, White will get his wish.

UPDATE: The organizer of the rally and website that goes with it is having second thoughts after receiving “unrelenting email and threats.”

    It is already circulating on Twitter locally that White isn’t even attending his own rally because he got “threats”….

    The local bloggers are laughing at him! While they are still abusing the team performance, what White is doing is ridiculous, embarrassing and classless!
    and say it will “cut into tailgating time”!

    Does Kubiak have draft final say? Whoever on the Texans has that authority is the person that should be fired. The neglect shown for the defense is almost criminal. The Texans have a pretty good offense that has to score 30+ a game just to be IN the game.
    Their first 5 draft picks should be for defense, especially the secondary.

    Anyone want to start a “Fire Stuart Scott” rally with me?

    White has taken down his website because of “threats” he received.

    HAHAHA!!!

    If you are going to attend this rally, go follow HoustonDieHards on Twitter. He has some great rally advice for you to follow!

    LMAO….I couldn’t of said it any better. There are no dumber fans in all of football than the Packer fans when it comes to “blind positivity”…..a Packer player could steal a fan’s 1970 pickup, have an affair with his wife and even committ the most heinious crime of all, drinking his can of “milwaukee’s best” and the fan would still worship the ground the player walked on!! Very well put Rosenthal!!!!

    He’s had more than enough time and talent to get that team on the up and up. Time for someone else to take over

    Who cares?

    I like Kubiak. I don’t think he’s the problem. I can’t stand the kind of fans that would boo their team or call for a coach’s job. This season has been hard to watch. I really don’t doubt they’ll fire him, though. Can we change the name of the team to the Oilers, please? We can keep our current colors.

    My my juddstir…want an an amazingly idiotic rant. I notice you don’t mention what team you follow…the Patriots? The Falcons? Or is it just whoever happens to be playing well that week? Packer fans are loyal no doubt, but we prefer to criticize things that pertain to football, like play calling, clock management, etc. But then I wouldn’t expect you to understand that, tool. So go check the standings and root for “your” team this week!

    Any donations of used “Fire Gary Kubiak” signs and paraphanalia from his previous destinations, would be greatly appreciated.

    It’s interesting that they have a picture of Garry Shandling on the website. ;-)

    By Contrast, we have a “Welcome to Denver” sign all ready for him. Dont worry Houston, in a week or two he’s Northwest bound anyway. Elway is waiting with open arms.

    English teachers organize a “Fire Gregg Rosenthal” rally.

    “Blind Positivity” must be a contagious ailment in Texas. Cowboys fans were still drinking the Kool Aid after they started 1-5, and lost their starting QB, that Dallas would still go 11-5.
    Now, after huge preseason expectations for both teams, they both suck. And, if Houston hires Cowher, he’ll get the ship righted in a few seasons and put even more pressure on Jerry Jones to fire “his” GM.

    There’s nothing more pathetic than a fair-weather fan.

  20. oldblue1 says: Dec 28, 2010 6:02 PM

    FIRE MILLEN!!!!!!! again

  21. jvw1982 says: Dec 28, 2010 6:15 PM

    Good for him, that’s his right to ask for changes when his team underacheives yr after yr……

  22. commandercornpone says: Dec 28, 2010 6:18 PM

    better watch it hawk, or stu will give you the evil eye.

    i mean, literally, he will pop it out of the socket and throw it at you.

    I am sorry but I disagree with this in so many ways. With out Kubiak
    you would have never had the comebacks we did. Kubiak is an offensive and always has been. This whole year hangs on Rick Smith and Defensive Coordinator Frank Bush Both of whom need to be replaced. Everyone wants to be fast to replace a Head coach when things go bad but it is not always his fault. If you replace Kubiak you start all over at square one and we will be 3 to 4 years from the Playoffs again with the whole team having to learn a new game plan. Replace the GM that gave us almost all rookies and second year players on D and the defensive coordinator that allowed it and couldn’t get them to play well and we could be there in a year or 2. Dismissing some head coaches is the right call but in this instance I don’t think it will help near as much as it did that other team from Texas.

    Kubiak did bring in Kyle Shanahan but he did not bring in his dad Mr.McNair did. When Mike Shanahan got the job in Washington Kyle decided he could do better with his dad and left, nothing would have kept him here, and let me say after the Mcnabb stuff up there and seeing them cost the Skins 3.5 mill for nothing, I dont have a problem with him leaving. Frank Bush was the defensive assistant for the previous two years before being promoted and given a chance the last two years. He relayed on Demeco Ryans to be his only big player behind the line on defense witch is something that can not be done in the NFL. Kyle Shanahan leaving did not affect our offense thanks to coach Kubiak. I do not understand why everyone always want to cut the head off and start over when with just a few small changes we could be in the playoffs next year instead of getting all new coaches and starting all over and waiting for another 3 to 5 year for the team to learn a new coach, all the while Johnson is getting older Shawb is getting older all the young players good players getting older and being in their prime in 3 to 5 years.

    Here a little fact for you NO super bowl coach has ever gone to another team and won the super bowl again.
