Another key piece of the puzzle that's being totally ignored in this discussion is the gathering of the right personnel. Show me any team that you think turned around in one year, or even two, and I'll show you where they either already had a decent talent pool (the Steelers when Cowher took over) or had sucked so long they'd been drafting in the top ten for years (Detroit, San Francisco, Tom Landry's early Cowboys).
You cannot turn a sow's ear into a silk purse until you gather up a lotta damn silk.
Good point. It is not like the Texans' defense is bottom feeding at any position...even w/o Mario
DL- 1st round pick, high dollar free agent and FA who was an original 2nd rounder
LB- 1 st rounder and 3 2nd rounders
CB- high $$ Fa (original 1st), Fa (original 1st) and 1st rounder
S - high $$ Fa and 4th rounder
