Re: Houston Texans hire Asst Special Teams
I don't understand why the Texans are reluctant to just wipe the slate clean when it comes to special teams. Get a new staff in with some new ideas.
Having a solid special teams is one of those undervalued blessings to a football team that can really help both the defense and offense out tremendously. How much would it have helped to have a great return (maybe even a TD) for the offense. Granted, our O lived and died by the FG at the end of the season...but getting a boost from special teams can bail out other units. A great punt pinning the opposing team back deep? That's exactly the type of play that gets a defense fired up and limits the opposing offense play-wise.
Look at the Ravens...they got a big boost from some timely kickoff returns for touchdowns. So did the Broncos. But as for the Texans, starting off from the 20 or worse just puts a burden on the offense more than anything.
Get some new coordinators in to change things up, please...
