Kubiak on Bush: “I believe in him”

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 22, 2010 – 6:21 pm

Included in the transcript of Gary Kubiak’s Monday press conference are three quotes on defensive coordinator Frank Bush. The second-year coordinator has come under fire in the press given the Texans’ struggles on defense, but Kubiak said resoundingly that he’s sticking with him.

From the head coach:

(on how he can justify keeping defensive coordinator Frank Bush right now) “Because I believe in him. I think we played much better defense yesterday. I think if we finished the game yesterday, we’d be talking about how much better we were. There were a lot of good things that went on. I believe in the guy. That’s why he’s here with me. We’ll figure out a way to get it done.”

(on words of encouragement he has offered to defensive coordinator Frank Bush) “Well, I thought he came down and handled the group very well. I thought we re-grouped better yesterday and I think that has a lot to do with Frank being down there (on the sidelines). After they went down and scored, and we got beat in the zero coverage that time, Frank calmed them down on the sidelines. He kept them going and we made big plays on defense to get us back in the game. The one fumble gave us a chance and of course, the interception, which we thought had a chance to close the game. So, I thought he had it under control very well. There were a lot of good things going on, but the last 49 seconds were not good enough. I’ll keep Frank going. Frank works very hard. These players will keep him going. We’ll get it fixed.”

(on if it was his decision to bring defensive coordinator Frank Bush out of the coaches’ box and onto the sideline against the Jets) “It was just to do something different. We needed to do something different with our guys. I think we need to continue to do that. I don’t know what that’ll be this week or next week, we’ll see. But I think anything that we try to get better at something, and our business is always about trying to improve; I’ve got to improve this team in situations, situational football at the end of (the) game. I have to figure out a way for us to handle those situations better. So, I’ll start by looking at myself.”

    You can stick by the side of your defensive coordinator Kubiak but he will get you fired. A head coach needs to recognize the weak points of his team and improve them. Two weeks in a row to lose a lead or tie in the last 60 seconds of a game is not a improvement….DEFENSE wins games and we have no defense!

    We got the players…now we need a coach to get them to play as a well oiled machine.
