Re: New HC candidates
Look at what Kansas City did in one season. They got themselves a new head coach (Andy Reid), and then went out and grabbed Alex Smith in a trade with the Niners.
They were the worst team in the NFL last year, and they went into the offseason looking for a new coach and new QB.
Now they are one of the better teams in the NFL. They may not have one of the tougher schedules this season, but they've played well. A lot of their pieces were on the team that went 2-14 the year before.
Not trying to draw too many parallels here between the Chiefs and the Texans, but I really think this team can be turned around quickly.
The two biggest items that need to be addressed (besides getting a coach)... getting a QB and adding a little depth to the team.
