HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – Houston Texans’ fans believe this has to be the Texans year.  The Texans organization believes the coach to do it, is Gary Kubiak.  However, the window is closing for aging players and for those leaders who need to make a deep postseason push.

The Texans franchise and fan base have waited 10 seasons for its first playoff berth and now, a Gary Kubiak led Texans won back-to-back AFC South titles.  Next up: Getting to the Super Bowl.

CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist, Pete Prisco’s latest column ranked the NFL’s coaches, and has Kubiak at #16.

“He is one of the class acts of coaching. He is even-keeled and never seems to lose it,” Prisco writes. “But there are some who think his stoic ways carry over to his team with the way they play. He seemed on the verge of getting fired when the Texans went 6-10 in 2010, but he’s responded to go 22-10 the last two seasons. He does a nice job with that offense.”

Prisco’s top 3 coaches are, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots, followed by the Giants Tom Coughlin and 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Every AFC South coach is ranked below of Kubiak, with Colts coach Chuck Pagano at #19, Titans coach Mike Munchak at #24 and the Jaguars’ Gus Bradley tied at #30.

So, what’s in a rating?  Gary Kubiak in 112 games is 59-53 with a .500 record in the playoffs.  If it wasn’t for facing the Bengals twice in two years, Kubiak could have no playoff wins.

You take these polls with a grain of salt, but at some point you have to give a nod to the theory of ‘PERCEPTION IS REALITY’.

Or at least it makes you discuss the reality that your franchise is in.
