Coach Joe allowed J.J. Moses to have a career in this league...he allowed Mathis to be the best KO returner in the league and have a pro bowl year... he even allowed the dumbass formally know as a Houston Texan Jacoby Jones to be a pro bowl alternate. He's had one of the best ST coverage teams in the league since he's been here.
Sorry, but this thread is off the mark. Our problem is not a coaching issue, it's a personnel problem. We need a smarter player, not another coach.
granted i'm obviously more focused on the texans, but from the games i've watched this season - the texans are leading the league about 3 to 1 in terms of special teams penalties for holding and blocks in the back. likewise i would like to find the stats to see where perception ranks towards reality.
the second point misses completely. we use a fair amount of starters on special teams and players who are true special teamers such as braman and mcmannis. the talent, especially this season, has been the best joe has had in years, but he hasnt changed. as a motivator he's second to none, the next bill cowher, but as a coordinator he's simply not doing his job - the schemes, execution, teaching, and adjustments are all lacking. the only reason we are even respectable this season is talent alone.
i love coach joe, i hope he's forever a texan ... however, he was good but simply hasnt kept up. blocked kicks? big returns? blocking schemes? fakes? coverages? DISCIPLINE????
