When I jokingly decided to name my fantasy football projection system after Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, I figured I had safely chosen a fairly obscure name. Nobody knew who this guy was except for Denver fans and the hardcore fans who can name all 64 coordinators. Little did I know that less than a year later, Gary Kubiak would be head coach of the Houston Texans. If the Kansas City Royals tomorrow named Bill Pecota as their manager, wouldn't this be strange for the Baseball Prospectus guys? Exactly. Anyway, I'm keeping the name, we'll just have to get used to saying "KUBIAK likes Reggie Bush" vs. "Gary Kubiak, the coach, likes Reggie Bush." By the way, Kubiak (the coach) was noncommittal when asked about the number one pick, but I think the bigger question in Houston is how to build where the previous administration faltered: along the lines.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
