Can anyone remember what the Clots D was saying when Fangio was let go...They said that his system is too confussing. You can see this simply by looking at Steve Foley of the Bolts. He went to the pro bowl last year in Wade Phillips 3 4 D. If he is so good why did the Texans let him get away. It is actually simple...Fangio's terminology is too complicated. He might call something 10 words long and Phillips simplifies the call with two words. Babin has been benched, but I would say that he would be a better player if the team's system was made a lttile more simple. I think Fangio expects MIT grads rather then FSU convicts. These are football players not NASA folks...

I agree with the complicated thing but also how about we try and blitz once a game...They bench one of our OLB's but how many times have they been told get to the QB instead of drop into coverage?

What is with you guys? You have never heard of football described that way? It's just a joke. Sheesh! Just trying to say we need to be aggresive and attack.

Fangio's system may have been confusing to some but he got the job done:


Fangio came to Houston after serving in the same capacity for the Indianapolis Colts the previous three seasons. Fangio led the defense to major improvements in all statistical categories, which helped the Colts post a 23-9 record over the 1999-2000 seasons after posting a 6-26 record the two previous campaigns. Indianapolis also won its first division championship (1999) in 15 seasons. In Fangio’s first season in Indianapolis, the Colts jumped from 29 th in the league to 15 th in total defense. His 2000 defense racked up 42 sacks, the most for the Colts in 11 years, and ranked 15 th in points allowed.
Before his stint with the Colts, Fangio orchestrated one of the league’s more fearsome units for four seasons at Carolina, helping the Panthers win the NFC West title in just their second season. In 1995, the expansion Panthers tied for seventh in the NFL in total defense and ranked sixth in scoring defense, 10 th in rushing defense, fifth in takeaways and second in defensive passer rating. Fangio’s defense allowed just 218 points in 1996, ranking second in the NFL as Carolina posted a 12-4 mark. That unit also ranked 10 th in total defense, first in third down defense, first in sacks, second in first downs allowed and fifth in takeaways. The Panthers yielded just five touchdowns and 56 points in the second half, breaking Chicago’s 1985 record of 71 points – a record that still stands. Fangio coached three All-Pro linebackers in Kevin Greene, Lamar Lathon and Sam Mills.

There was definitely some "old school" coaches who put bounty's on the QB's head. They would payoff if one of their defensive players knocked out a certain QB.

Now the must just pay our offensive line. Its probably cheaper that way.

Sorry for being a little "snappy". I have coffee in my system now so all is right in the world.

The Colts had the #3 scoring offense in 1999 and the #4 scoring offense in 2000. You can pretty much pin your ears back and blitz if you have a big lead all the time. The Texans rarely ever have a lead and if they do it is always a very slim one that they have to try and desperately hold on to.

As far as the Panthers go I'll just say 3 words: Greene/Lathon/Mills.
When Greene left for SF in 97 Lathon and Mills declined big time. It was the 3 of them together that made that defense in 96.
