Sorry Aggie Fans might work out... I dunno kind of Reeks of the Bill Callahan hiring at Nebraska.
AS for the Texans.....BIG WIN i think. I think it's more of a identity crisis on the offensive line and this hiring might clear it up some. I still really think Sherman's winning record was more indicative of talent left from the Ron Wolfe Era. I'm still not 100% sure this means an immediate promotion to OC for Kyle. There should be an interesting pool after the season though. Billick from Baltimore might be looking for a new job, Caldwell from the Colts might be looking to a promotion(how sweet it would be to take a a piece of the Colts machine and use it), and ther eare probably others i am forgetting. I'm not naive enough to think Sherman has been the ONLY problems but i do think i'ts a piece aside from injuries and overall lack superior talent on this team.
I wouldn't mind Seeing Smith gone and I think Rivera wouldn't mind getting out of San Diego but of course most of this is premature an'd i'm sure the loss to Cleveland has left some bitter taste in some people's mouths. Whomever gets the hire or unless Kubiak deceides to fully take over at OC the important thing is for this offense to form an identity. If run to open the pass is it...then we need to make RB a priority this draft or off-season.
There is still Football left to play this year. Left not jump overboard yet.
I would love for the Texans to find a way to secure Rivera as DC. Billick is defnitely qualified to be OC and would be highly motivated but his ego is such that I am not sure he will take an OC job. He will probably wait to be hired by another team as HC and if that doesnt happen could probably get a college job, no problem at all. We do need new coordinators now, on both sides of the ball.
Gary and Sherm have done a decent job with the offense, but there is no doubt we need new blood in our defensive coaching staff....and now with the hiring of Sherman by Aggieland we have to find an OC that can keep our offense progressing as it has this year. If we can find a way to limit our turnovers the Texans would be a Top10 offense, for sure. The defense though is just lacking for a variety of reasons but coaching is the only one of those reasons that we can throw money at and try and improve its plight.
