Default Intresting stuff about the Texans in this power rankings

Looks like our Texans are number one in this poll too... but they have a bold prediction saying that Wade will probably get another chance at a head coaching job.

For a team looking for a short term fix or boost it wouldn't surprise me one bit. I'd love to see him retire as the Texans' DC, but I don't think it's likely.

Oldest head coach to win an NFL championship: George Halas was 68 in 1963.

Oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl: Dick Vermeil was 63 in 1999.

Oldest man to head coach an NFL team: Marv Levy tied with George Halas at 72.

Can't find a stat on the oldest head coach ever HIRED by an NFL team.

Uncle Wade will be 66 years old when training camp starts next summer.

I don't see him being a head coach again, but I could be wrong.

EDIT: Looks like Dick LeBeau was the oldest rookie NFL head coach ever hired --- he was 63. Joe Gibbs was also 63 when he was RE-HIRED by the Redskins in 2004.

2nd EDIT: Tom Coughlin broke Dick Vermeil's record earlier this year, winning a Super Bowl at 65.

I think some of your info. is out of date. Coughlin was 65 when he won the Super Bowl this past January (edit - should be February).

I honestly think Wade is happy right now. He is the highest paid DC in the league, coaching in his home city where his family is on a peddistool and gets to be around his dad who is up there in age.

Yeah, Wade will end up as HC of the cowgirls again, after they fire Garrett following their next loss.

He's said he is happy here, but he still wants to be a head coach. I think if he was paid as much as a head coach, then he would stay. Other than Philly or KC not sure what coaching vacancys will be open. I guess there is a chance that Rex Ryan might be gone.

If Bob wants to keep Wade, put a full time department (invent it) to do nothing but make sure Wade Phillips FEELS like a head coach here.

Major ass kissing, in other words. Renovate an area of the coach's offices to create a Wade Phillips wing/complex...massage recliner chair, huge posters of Bum from his old days as coach in Houston, the whole thing like it's Wade's World up in there.

Coordinated efforts to get local media at his doorstep often. Parades. Honor events. Schmooze his azz off.

Make the old man feel like it'd actually be a damn step DOWN to take that lowly job in Loserville USA.

Wade to his agent: "What? I don't want to even consider that job! You told them I would listen? Hell no. I love it here. I have a massage chair!"

For real.

You should just alternate who is head coach each year since Kubiak and Wade both make better coordinators...

I suspect that all head coaches make better coordinators and that Head Coaches, in a way that will some day be figured out, are actually unnecessary.

Hey, let's alternate HCs during games like we're doing with the RT and RG positions.

Like I said: if some of those teams don't hit their goals, they may decide that a coaching change might get them where they need to go. Philly, in particular, has to win the Super Bowl for Andy Reid to keep his job, in my opinion.

And San Diego has underachieved for the last few years. They definitely need a change.
