After a very disappointing 6-10 season, many Texans fans were calling for head coach Gary Kubiak's head.
But Bob McNair decided to give him one more chance, and I am of the opinion Kubiak won't disappoint.
One benefit of Kubiak's retention may go relatively unseen, but cannot be forgotten. In this lockout season, stability may be more important than anything, and that's exactly what Houston gets with Kubiak staying.
Teams who switched head coaches this year could be in for a nightmare season if their new head men don't have much time to incorporate themselves, their staff and their ideals into the system.
Since Kubiak is staying, the Texans won't have to deal with all that.
And because they have nearly all the pieces for a playoff run, they can focus solely on free agency to fill remaining holes, which bodes well for my first two reasons.
So if you are the speculating type, the lockout could end up indirectly resulting in Houston's first playoff appearance in franchise history.
Regardless of whether or not you agree, it's an interesting proposition.
