is there any more reliable sources other than a messageboard.

I hope its true though, that would give us one hell of a offense.

I just hope we shore up the defensive staff.

Finally, I am glad we have someone named to be o-line coach and assistant head coach. I'm glad we got the offensive side of the ball taken care of. Now hopefully we'll start workin on the D. GO SHERMAN!!! GO TEXANS!!! Today is a good day.:fans:

Tue, 31 Jan 2006 19:10:31 -0800

Albert Breer, of the Metrowest Daily News, reports former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman told the newspaper he will accept an offer to join the Houston Texans' coaching staff. He is expected to be named assistant head coach/offensive line.

I guess the KFFL report wasn't good enough for you...Here's the actual article:

Mike Sherman spent 17 years in coaching before throwing his hat into the NFL ring.
This time around, it seems as if four weeks on the outside looking in was more than enough for the Northborough product.
According to a published report on Saturday, the ex-Packers coach was offered a position as assistant head coach/offensive line head coach Gary Kubiak’s first staff in Houston. Tuesday night, a source close to Sherman confirmed to the Daily News that he has accepted the Texans’ post.

Well, then if we do drop the zone blocking scheme, how would this offense be like the Denver offense, as we have been told it would by Koobs.

Forget that he is a former head coach. This is a bright offensive mind with experience as a line coach. That was our weakest unit and it has our best assistant coach so far.

The main aspect of bringing in Sherman is to improve the pass blocking. The zone blocking scheme will do its damage run blocking and with improvement of technique, but Denver's pass blocking was not overly dominant and Kubiak is trying to fix that. Sherman has done a good job in the past of teaching pass blocking technique. I dont think him coming here does much for us drafting D'Brick, if anything it further solidifies the fact that we will either take Bush or draft for defense.

Have to disagree with one point here . Denvers pass protection was FAR above average during the regular season . They ranked 3rd in the NFL with only 23 sacks allowed behind only Cincinnati (21) and Indianapolis (20) .

It wasnt until the Steelers Play-off game that their protection broke down ...and the Steelers did the same thing to the two afore mentioned teams in the play-offs . Cincy allowed 4 sacks to the Steelers in their play-off game , The Colts 5 sacks vs the Steelers while Denver gave up 3 . Not only did they sack them but they harrassed those QB's continually thruought the games .


I think this just shows how good Pittsburgh's defense and scheme is to do that to the TOP THREE teams in sacks allowed in the regular season during their play-off run .


On a side note , the two QB's who were sacked least this past season also put up the highest QB rating's .

Peyton Manning 104.1 ... 20 sacks
Carson Palmer 101.1 .... 21 sacks

A comparison to those sacked the most .

David Carr 77.2 ........68 sacks
Daunte Culpepper 72.0 ....31 sacks in his 7 games before finding his way to the bench due to injury . (Minn was second in sacks allowed this season w/ 54 total)

As for Sherman coming to the Texans , I think its a good hire but only a short term fix because he will be a head coach again in the not too distant future . Sherman was a HC casualty because of injuries and the fact that his O-line was torn apart in the last offseason losing two starters via FA .... :stirpot:

I think McNair is willing to pay if needed, but he's not Dan Snyder who wants nothing buy headlines. If Bates is the best person for the team they will find a way to get him.

For the sake of stability I think I'd rather have an unknown who's here for a
longer term than some name coach who's here for maybe a season until something to his real likeing comes along. And of course that applies to both
Sherman & Bates.

Even if they aren't big names, Teams are locking up there assistants. That or they aren't releasing them from there current contracts. What's the lastest on the two defensive assistants......one from Arizona and the other from Miami? Frank Bush and Richard Smith I believe there names were.

Here is an update.
__________________________________________________ ______________
A CARDINAL MOVE
Last week, Cardinals coach Dennis Green denied the Texans permission to hire Arizona linebackers coach Frank Bush as Houston's defensive coordinator.

But now Green is making it up to Bush.

The Cardinals will name Bush their assistant head coach, a promotion rewarding Bush for remaining with Arizona as opposed to going with Houston. It continues a steady rise for Bush, who has gone from special teams coach to linebackers coach to assistant head coach. Bush is popular amongst players and, being such, could be in line for more promotions in the future.

All that stat quoting is good, but don't remember all the times Jake squeezed his way out of what should have been sacks, I can remember at least three times vividly. He did end up fumbling the last one on 4th down...They pass protect well because they move the QB with PA bootleg action with is effective due to the running game; however, they are not a great drop back passing team, but efficient. Carr can be better in the pocket than Jake though.

Northborough’s Sherman in line for job with Texans
By Albert Breer/ Daily News Staff
Wednesday, February 1, 2006 - Updated: 02:42 AM EST

Mike Sherman spent 17 years in coaching before throwing his hat into the NFL ring.

This time around, it seems as if four weeks on the outside looking in was more than enough for the Northborough product.

According to a published report on Saturday, the ex-Packers coach was offered a position as assistant head coach/offensive line head coach Gary Kubiak’s first staff in Houston. Last night, a source close to Sherman confirmed to the Daily News that he has accepted the Texans’ post.

The fit seems to be a natural. Kubiak and Sherman worked together on the offensive side of the ball -- Kubiak with the running backs, Sherman with the line -- at Texas A&M in 1992 and ’93 under R.C. Slocum. Kubiak, in fact, tried to convince Sherman to come to the Broncos before Sherman took his first pro job as Packers tight ends and assistant offensive line coach in 1997.

Also, the two come from the same NFL coaching tree, one tracing back to Bill Walsh, which is sure to ease the transition for both men.

Sherman interviewed for vacant positions in New Orleans and Buffalo in recent weeks, and was reported to be one of two finalists for the Bills head coaching job that went to fellow Bay State native Dick Jauron (Swampscott). He was also approached by Jauron and new Jets coach Eric Mangini about becoming offensive coordinator, but reportedly brushed back those overtures.

In Houston, Sherman will join new offensive coordinator Troy Calhoun and receivers coach Kyle Shanahan (son of Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan), both of whom came from Denver with Kubiak, and holdover Chick Harris, the team’s running backs coach.

Working with the offensive line in Houston, Sherman has a mighty task in front of him. Former No.1 overall pick David Carr has taken a staggering 208 sacks (1,226 yards lost) in his four-year career, and the Texans haven’t drafted linemen with any proficiency.

In its first two seasons, Houston spent three top-75 picks on offensive linemen. Only one, guard Chester Pitts, has become a consistent starter, and the prized pick of the 2002 expansion draft, oft-injured left tackle Tony Boselli, never played a down for the team.

On the other hand, Sherman will be working with an offensive staff largely from Denver, a place where some of the best offensive lines of the last decade have been cultivated.

And in Houston, there’s also the matter of the team having the No.1 overall pick, widely expected to be USC tailback Reggie Bush. There has also been speculation the team will rid itself of Carr -- who may have taken one too many hits at this point -- before the quarterback’s $8 million roster bonus comes due on March 1, which would clear the way for the Texans to pick Houston native Vince Young or Southern Cal quarterback Matt Leinart.

Of course, Sherman may want to start stumping for Virginia’s blue-chip left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, considering the Texans’ history up front.

Texans | Kubiak denies Sherman has accepted his job offer
Wed, 1 Feb 2006 18:20:36 -0800

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak denied an earlier report out of Boston that Mike Sherman had accepted his offer to join the Texans. "That story's false," Kubiak said about the report that Sherman had accepted his offer. "Mike hasn't decided anything yet. I told him how much I'd like to have him, but I told him to take his time and let me know when he'd decided." Sherman is not expected to make a decision to join the Texans as assistant head coach/offensive line before next week.

http://www.wbay.com/Global/story.asp?S=4469672

The Houston Texans are still holding the door open for former Green Bay Packers coach Mike Sherman, even though the team has hired a coach to handle the job already offered to Sherman.

The Texans hired an offensive line coach Tuesday but said that person will become the assistant offensive line coach if Sherman accepts their offer. Sherman would also serve as assistant head coach.

This is becoming a rather long courtship. Last week a suburban Boston newspaper cited sources close to Sherman saying he accepted the job, then the next day Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Sherman didn't give an answer yet.

The job is Sherman's if he wants it. The Texans expect a decision this week.

cadahnic
02-08-2006, 09:29 AM
Kaiser I think he needs to give his answer pretty soon, but to leave the door open does not hurt us that much. Sherman will be a good addition to the line and can only help us in facets of the operation. I just hope we are not missing out on other guys that he is interested in by waiting on Sherman. I do think though if Sherman comes in it will be more likely we go defense. I was looking at most drafts when a offensive coach was hired and most of the time they go defense to improve that side of the ball. We may do this in the draft or FA, but unless they feel we need a QB I am pulling for defense.

IIRC, the Packers have to pay the difference between the salary he receives from a new team and his old salary.

So I am guessing, there isn't huge incentive to make at least the early years of such a contract big.

As for McNair spending money, I think Kubiak is getting the guys he wants--the only ones he hasn't gotten haven't rejected us because of money, but rather because they can't get out of their old contracts (PHX guy) or they just don't want to come here (Dan Neil rumor).

I truly hope Sherman comes on board. He would be a great assett on this staff and I agree with the earlier poster about this possibly turning out to be the early makings of a great team staff. It could possibly be a dream team staff if thigns work out well over the next few years.

I certainly feel this staff will NOT lack in taking chances, trying new things. calling out players to step it up, encouraging and trying to support every facet of being a real NFL quality team. I think they will be trying everything they can to get the most out of this team and I'm all for it. :redtowel:

With Sherman on board it would certainly lend even more legitimacy to the staff being good, but honestly I like the idea of giving all the young coaches a break to try and be the coaches they truly want to be. Something to be said about people being in a job they enjoy and are passionate about. I think it will bleed over to the players and hopefully translate well on the field too! :yahoo:

EYES OF TEXANS
Look for former Packers head coach Mike Sherman to decide within the week whether to accept an offer to become the Houston Texans assistant head coach, overseeing the team's offensive line.

The Texans have recruited Sherman as hard as they can. He was brought to Texans owner Bob McNair's house for a get-to-know-you lunch in which Houston made it known how important Sherman could be to its team. Then they gave Sherman as much time as he wanted and needed to make his decision.

Indications are that, ultimately, Sherman will take the offer. The organization is too good for him not to, and Sherman and Kubiak are good friends from their days coaching together at Texas A&M.

Official word is due any time now.

Texans | Sherman expected to accept assistant coaching position
Thu, 9 Feb 2006 19:26:43 -0800

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman is expected to accept a position with the Houston Texans as their new assistant head coach/offensive line. The move may not become official before next week.

Texans | Team exercises Carr's option; move not expected to impact NFL Draft selection
Thu, 9 Feb 2006 19:09:20 -0800

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports the Houston Texans exercised the $8 million option that extends QB David Carr's contract through the 2008 season, according to a source close to the team. A formal announcement is expected Friday, Feb. 10. Carr's extension calls for the $8 million bonus and base salaries of $5.25 million this year, $5.5 million in 2007 and $6 million in 2008. The decision to extend Carr's contract has nothing to do with the top pick in the draft. The Texans still haven't decided if they'll select University of Texas QB Vince Young or Southern California RB Reggie Bush. The Texans also haven't ruled out the possibility of trading down.

hassle to uproot for 12 months, then move again, especially if he has younger, grade or HS age kids. And he probably doesn't want to live away from his family and fly back and forth several times a month, though many of us have to live that way at times.

The one thing I thought McNair needed to do was go out and get a coaching staff to match the talent this ball club has. It looks like he has and I think Texans can look forward to a prosperous year. My question is when are Carr and Kubiack moving their coaches into Reliant so they can start working together? Both have been proponents of that option.

I have listened to the interviews of Kubiack and about Kubiack and I must admit that I come off very impressed at this point in time. He certainly sounds like he has the personality that I would like to see in a head coach for the Texans. He seems to posses the offensive knowledge we need and he seems to be no slouch with respect to the defense. He has aquired a good mix of experience and youth for coaches and I look forward seeing how they mold this ball club.

The pressures on Kubiack are going to be tremendous, but I think he has the presonality that can handle it. His biggest challenge is not going to be offense, but rather defense. As many have posted the defense is really the over the hill gang in many important spots. I like the fact that he has retained Marciano and I liked Marciano's interview at the Pro Bowl. I do believe Mathis is a special player.

I will continue to say this ball club has a lot of raw talent that has never seen the light of day. The previous coaching staff destroyed all resemblances of talent any of the players had. People chasitze Carr for not being a leader, but the same could be said for the defense. Yes, DROB is a force, but he was not Glenn or Sharper. Last years coaching staff saw to it that this was a leaderless ball club and you saw the results. They wanted no one challenging their decisions. I think Carr will show more maturity than you think under the tuitoring of Kubiack. He will become a decision maker on the field. We saw one game last year where that was the case. Rather I should say one quarter and he showed us a hidden talent which was immediately squashed. I truely believe the Texans have fixed a lot of their problems and many of those were centered around the coaching department. Folks, sit back and relax, and watch what happens with next years ball club. I truely believe you are going to be astounded in the differences. It will take a while to be a contender, but you are going to see a big difference right out of the shute.

I believe he was there for a year in the mid 90s. Maybe 95-96. I guess he would have encountered McKinney. I wonder what that will do for McKinney.

Sherman:

He then spent five years as offensive line coach at Texas A&M (1989-93) before moving to UCLA in the same role for one year. He returned to A&M as offensive line coach in 1995 and was named offensive coordinator for the Aggies following the 1996 season.

McKinney was starting left guard '95-'97.

Probably more relevant is Gary Kubiak's 1st coaching job was RB's coach at A&M '92-'93.

It will be interesting to watch the pecking order unfold with Benton, Calhoun and Sherman -- or should I say, between Calhoun and Sherman.

assistant head coach, sherman trumps everyone but kubiak. i think mcnair is taking snyder's approach and building his coaching staff is priority one. i'm in firm opinion that this will be a trend. coaching salaries will jump and teams will go to any means to stack their office ... and IMO it's about damn time. belichick, sherman, shannahan, holmgren, cowher ... look at the rotating rosters, and look at the stability and winning percentage of top tier coaching. look at denver, trusting coaching of free agents and middle round picks to build a perennial winner. look at pitt & new england, drafting ugly and towards coaching style knowing they could be greats with the proper teachings. the only constant in these top tier teams is coaching, and always has been. i'm more than willing to give kubiak atleast 2 winless seasons, because of where we currently stand, and where i think (and mcnair apparently thinks) kubiak can take us.

i love the signing, but the only worry i have is that we've got more cheifs than indians on the offensive side (kubiak, sherman, casserly, reeves, mcnair), and the exact opposite on the defensive side with extremely little experience. i dont like being pessimistic on such a positive aspect, but i've seen the outcome of that scenario entirely too often. kubiak NEEDS to be the one & only final decision on all matters ... if he's not, i can guarantee that things will get very ugly very fast in the office (my guarantee is that if we get funky with conflict of interest, we turn into the raiders for a few years).

what excites me most about signing sherman though, is that between him & reeves we're in better position to set up kubiak for the long term. i dont think it's out of line to say that most folks in this area would love nothing more than to see kubiak around for the long haul (10+ years) and given a legitimate chance to build a franchise instead a one year team. i think that's what reeves & sherman are going to do. building kubiak should be their priority, building the texans should be kubiak's.

aj.
02-15-2006, 06:12 AM
assistant head coach, sherman trumps everyone but kubiak.

I guess that's my point. Usually the coordinators are clear #2's but considering Sherman's tenure as a head coach and Calhoun's lack of tenure as a coordinator, that would seem to favor Sherman in the 'sage' role.

I've read that Baltimore had a bit of an issue with too many cooks in the kitchen with Billick, Fassel, and Neuheisel all trying to impose their will at times so that's one thing to watch.

I think Calhoun clearly understands who's the boss and that it's Gary's offense that he's being asked to implement. But you never know how an agressive young man with his sights set on having a certain level of freedom and flexibility in making certain decisions will react when a more senior person is brought into the mix. This is what will be new to Gary. Managing a staff and everything that comes with it.

I think when we should also consider Sherman has good experience as the GM for the Packers as well. I believe he served in that capacity for 3 years. It could have been 4. He brought in guys like Nick Barnett and Javon Walker. We could use some assistance getting the most talent out of the draft.

Look, I'm just glad the Sherman's here for the sake of this message board. After all, come week 2 this season, folks will have an easier time formulating their "FIRE KUBIAK!" threads without making their heads get all hot from thinking of alternatives. Now, there's a contender. :tv:


Good hire--shores up a need for experience. I think the guy was a victim of circumstances in GB, and I think they'll be regretting that firing very soon. Their loss, our gain.

Too late. I think we already had one when he hired Shanahan's son.

The first really good news since Kubiak was hired. Finally some experience and really good experience at that, on the coaching staff. I expect to see dramtic improvement with the oline next year due to better players, better scheme, and better overall coaching. I am still worried about the D, but between Kubes and Sherman, the offense is now in good hands!

hey I dont a few shoot outs - it be a lot more interesting in the lets keep things close approach adopted by Capers

[quote=Scooter]i love the signing, but the only worry i have is that we've got more cheifs than indians on the offensive side (kubiak, sherman, casserly, reeves, mcnair), and the exact opposite on the defensive side with extremely little experience.


Richard Smith has been involved as a Defensive coach for 18 years and has a reputation for being a little fiery.

Doesn't Casserly automatically count as a negative on the offensive side? That should help even it out a little bit.

I actually made that thread 15 mins after Kubiaks hiring <in jest of course> only to have it removed <grin> So, make sure I get recogniztion as the FIRST to say it! :)

Quit stealing my glory there, bozo!:) I created one even before he was hired, just as a 'rub your nose in it" deal for all the dirtbags who'll jump on the bandwagon when Kubiak takes Bush in the draft.

Aaaaah people w/ their fire the coaching threads. Boo on them. I think Kubiak has put a good coaching staff together. I didn't know Mike Sherman was a GM - message to McNair in the distant future. I think GB shafted the guy. I wish Capers could have taken this team to the playoffs even once. Sherman took them 5 out of the last 6 years. Ah well. he's here now. The coaching staff is complete. Can't wait to see how they do on draft day. Can't wait for training camp, preseason. And dang sure can't wait for the Texans. They may do better than expected - whatever that is to every individual fan on this board.

GO TEXANS!!!! Beat the Cowboys again next season!!! Have a winning season!!!

McNair is definitely building in options he can turn to on the fly if needed with this restructuring.

Actually I didn't. It wouldn't fit (over 80 characters) so I had to cut it short. idonno: The whole thing's funnier together, but the TV dinner line was good on its own.
