Now that Kyle Shanahan has been promoted to QB coach, is DC as good as gone? One of the reasons Kubes was hired was to fix DC. One year into Project DC someone else is taking over. I also find it ironic that of all the QB's and receivers DC was the only person Kyle was unable to get a hold of.

Or was Kubes wearing to many hats and finally farming out other team duties?

Lil Kyle was offense quality control at Tampa Bay working with QBs and Receivers. I think it fits, and it means that now Kyle will be the go between for Carr and Kubiak. Kubiak will still be the main QB coach, HC, and OC, but this allows him to focus more on fixing or improving whatever QB we have and managing gameplans and games better. We will need a Receivers coach.

I am on the other side of the coin, lil Kyle (love the nickname) and Carr seem to click together and if Carr was going to be out the door, an experinced Qb coach would have been named. I do not think Lil Kyle would be asked to show Plummer the ropes and take a rookie QB under his wing. No matter how much of a future guru the guy is, that is too much of him.

I agree, but I'm concerned about who the O-line coach is going to be. Other than QB, it needs alot of coaching. IMO, we need an experienced coach for our O-line. Not only to coach the remaining squad, but to blend in whoever we pick up in the offseason without disrupting whatever cohesiveness we had, if any.:)

Actually moving a guy who is young and who has little experience would fit perfect with a guy like Plummer or a vet because it would be less teaching and more on the job learning and talking.

He has to learn sometime. Add to that, why would a 27 year old QB coach be able to fix a QB who has been broke on our team. Honestly, I'm not going to read to much on either side of it. I'm sure they are just putting pieces in place because of guys leaving, etc.

I think you guys maybe reading too much into this.

Kubiak may have a good relationship with Kyle and Kyle understands and listens well to Kubiak and follows the orders to the T. Basically, this could be just really an assistant position to the QB coach while he carries a bigger title to pad his resume.

I guess what I am saying is, I don't think this really means Carr is staying or going.

There are 32 teams in the league, there are a shortage of experienced and well qualified players and coaches. Every team is going to have some young and inexperienced people at key positions.

Maybe it is nothing more than my gut speaking... Plummer has been successful on a level Carr has not. I just do not see Kubes promoting Kyle if Plummer is coming. With Carr footwork, confidence, and pocket presence has been his biggest downfalls. I feel Kyle was given this position with the intention that he was the most qualified to deliver in those specific areas. Plus they seem to have the relationship to accomplish those objectives.

I apologize in advance that this posting is nothing more than my gut and is not based on any factual evidence.

Your first sentence is my thought.

As for your second sentence, I disagree. I've seen a bunch of the Texans coaches do chalk talks, some better than others. Kyle Shanahan's was very impressive. I had a choice as to whose talk I was going to watch, and I chose to watch his because I was very skeptical about his initial hiring like a lot of the people on the MB, but I came out believing that he was one of those people that can help Kubiak communicate his message of what he is trying to do.

KS is a coach's kid, only son, who played D I football for a good program despite being in his words "slow." He lives football, and when he talks football you forget how young he is.

This is what I wrote about him last summer:

Link: "Mario Williams is big, and slightly less obvious observations. (http://blogs.chron.com/fanblogtexans/2006/06/mario_williams_is_big_and_slig_1.html)

One of the stories he told was how he tried to get Gruden to change one aspect of the offensive line blocking to make it more like the way Denver does it. Gruden was intrigued by it, but in the end, decided to do things more conventionally.

It was this chalk talk that really opened my eyes to what is possible with this offense, but how difficult it would be to get all the players knowing what they are supposed to do. It also made me realize how much the Denver blocking scheme is intrinsically important to the entire offense. (Making the run blocking/pass blocking look the same to Ds + cut blocks).

The first drives of a lot of the games with the scripted plays were often the most successful ones because they players could do and not think. KS showed how really subtle things (ones that you would in a million years not notice on TiVO), made the plays work or not work.

I know with his age it is easy to be dismissive of him, but look around the league and see who is being hired as head coaches. Lots of young guys in the league.

As for the topic of the post, I think it writes nothing on the wall. Kubiak will still be very involved with the QBs, but Shanahan is someone that knows what Kubiak is trying to get his QBs to do. How deep the QB rollouts are supposed to be? Where he is supposed to look at the field at a particular time? Etc.

Thanks for sharing TC. But as a fan for the last five years I do not want my HC commited to time with an asset that has provided no real return. Kubiak is solid and we need his shine to scale across the team rather than localized to a position. I sincerely hope that the development of all three units and emerging young players are not stunted due to more special attention paid to Carr by our HC.

You dont know Kubiak very well if you think that, thats the last thing Carr gets from him.

Kyle is acctually a pretty smart guy when it comes to Xs and Os, he did not go home and read up on how to coach QBs on the internet like Romey did. He is easy to get along with, and has played in college un like the others. The only thing knocking him is his age, how can a guy that is 8 years younger then me going to tell me how to do my job, which is why he is not Dres WRs coach anymore.

And I also know they will not be throwing into trash cans for a half hour, that was the way to make our QBs better in the past around here. O and throw over laters and throwing at dots not moving (that is acctually a good one.)........

Kubes works with them more anyway.

Actually, I was getting the vibe from interviews and articles that the opposite was happening. That Kubiak-the-HC was overwhelmed with the vastness of the HC'ing duties and didn't have time to be Kubiak-the-QC. It was, afterall, his first year as a HC and I'm sure he (Kubiak) learned a lot about managing the team and managing his time....

I don't believe he's through yet with his tutelage of DC and teaching him "the system". I would be very surprised if DC is not back next year...

It would probably be difficult for any accomplished veteran player to listen to a position coach with so little experience.

I don't see how this is going to help anything other than Kyle's resume since he's obviously on a fast track to somewhere - whether he's earned it or not. Can you imagine if we had an accomplished veteran QB in here and Kyle tried to tell him what to do?

I think this job is basically Kubiak telling Kyle to 'keep an eye on the QBs for me and here's what to look out for.'

He's better than the guy who had about as much business being a QB coach as I did. Yeah, very comforting.

Set your goals low and you will probably achieve them.

I think Kyle will be Kubiak's watchdog over the QBs and nothing more. What original thoughts (based on his playing expereince) can Kyle bring to a veteran NFL QB about mechanics, reads, managing game situations, etc.? The answer is none. Everything he gives will be based on film study and what others have told him, and none will be from personal experience, except as a back up receiver in college. I realize there are other QB coaches that haven't played the position but this one bugs me more because of the family ties.

Like I said earlier, this is a great situation for Kyle. He's building an awesome resume at a young age and learning the ropes of how an NFL offense works. Whether he's really bringing that much to the table (other than all that coaching 'gene' ious) is another question.

My point has been nepotism from the start.

Until little Shanny delivers something substantial, he's just another favored coaches boy with little experience who hasn't earned squat. I bet that's how a lot of the players feel. That's my opinion. I'm glad he's only the QB coach.

But I'd rather have expereinced coaches in here - especially at a position that has underachieved since Day 1 - rather than have a coaching test-bed for someone's career development.

I agree, and proof is in the pudding. What concerns me is that we've been a suck team for five seasons, and instead of going out and obtaining the services of PROVEN coaches, we get Lil' Kyle as a QB coach and Rantin' Richard as defensive coach. We are not a proven team that can take unproven coaches and just hope for success!

A suck team + inexperienced coaches = recipe for disaster.

Let Kyle be a coach for his dad or some other team that can afford to carry an inexperienced coach on their staff. The Texans are in desperate need of leadership, and I find it hard to believe that a thrown-together coaching staff is going to magically have chemisty without the backgrounds.

Set your goals low and you will probably achieve them.

This is quickly becoming the Texans motto. Of course, I hope I'm completely wrong, but these moves have not inspired confidence in the fan base.

I don't think this changes much of anything when it come to the QB and QB coaching situation as compared to last season. Kubiak was the de facto QB coach. He was the one going over mechanics, etc. with Carr throughout the year. What if you do bring in another experienced QB coach? Too many cooks spoiling the soup. At least now he has an assistant to reinforce his points and keep an eye on them, as aj put it. It's just a title, a more apt one probably being assistant to the HC in charge of QBs. Shanny seemed to be the one Carr was talking to on the sidelines and going over pictures during games anyway.

What it does do, however, is free up the WR coaching position to someone who does have experience and CAN bring something to the table there. So glass half full... Let's see who they bring in there and then pass judgment...

I say let Kubiak do what HE wants.

Well that goes without saying. It's not like we have much of a choice. We are mere fans.

But a forum is for expressing opinions and exchanging perspectives, like sitting with some friends over coffee or beers. We cannot control anything on this team, but it sure is fun to talk about it!

Good point.
