Veteran Maurice Williams might be the best available free-agent offensive lineman. Why is he still…
Players Support Their Coach
During the four-game losing streak, Kubiak's job security was a topic of weekly conversation. Before and after Sunday's 34-7 victory over Seattle, players went public with their desire to have Kubiak return for his fifth season.
Receiver Andre Johnson, the Texans' best and most respected player, was the first of the prominent players to speak out on Kubiak's behalf. Johnson said last week that Kubiak shouldn't be fired, and the players should shoulder the blame for a poor record.
After the Seattle game, defensive end Mario Williams and strong safety Bernard Pollard told media and fans that the players wanted Kubiak back.
"I don't want another coach here," Williams said after registering two sacks. "I love Kubiak to death. I think he's a great coach. I definitely don't want to see (anyone) different."
Pollard played his first three seasons with Kansas City and started in the last two. He was waived in the final roster reduction because the new regime under Todd Haley told him it wanted to go in another direction.
"I've seen change, and you don't want change here," Pollard said.
Although McNair will wait to say something officially, expect him to stick with Kubiak for a fifth season.
