Default Is Marciano still around? Accountability!

Marciano is still the special teams coach. Huh.

He puts the capital "S" in "special." I guess you can release 3 players for violating "team rules" and get that whole "well, we showed 'em!" out of your system when it comes to holding people accountable.

Anyone else think that keeping Marciano is indicative of McNair's inability to pull the trigger until it's 2-3 years too late? Anyone think that keeping Marciano around just means in the bigger picture that Kubiak is coming back next year? After all, McNair can justify his decision by vaguely citing "injuries to key players."

Even if it's a "dumb" decision to get rid of a coach halfway during a season, even if the coach is the most useless bag of football flesh this side of Blaine Gabbert, it's one of those messages that should be sent. Cutting non-suited up players just isn't impactful.

More of that highly successful "playing not to lose" mentality that seems to be spread to every corner of this franchise. I hope we can get that stench out of the curtains when Kubiak is finally gone in 5-10 years.

Richard Smith was a dumpster fire at DC. Stayed too long. Frank Bush was maybe the worst DC in NFL history, stayed WAY too long. Marciano was average at first but now is on a whole new level of ****ty, still here. He'll be the space goat in the off season as a way to justify bringing Gary back. Unless Gary bottoms out this year and next, no way we ever fire him. It's a very sad time right now.

Maybe Marciano just needs another ST assistant coach to really get his unit to the next level.

Even when at least one of the players released was a special teams player.

Through WK 7 -

#6 in KR avg. allowed
#4 in PR avg. allowed

One of only 5 teams to give up a PR TD.

VS.

#10 in KR avg FOR

#29 in PR avg FOR

Of course, that doesn't account for our KR giving up a TD to the other guys.



No excuse for not canning Marciano LAST year. Sure, he's a nice guy, but that doesn't win games (and least not for Houston teams).
