Default Texans Hire Jeff Zgonina

Some might not think this is thread worthy, but I always liked this dude for some reason. He wasn't the best, but he worked harder than any player I've seen at TC. Plus, dude's built like a dadgum stump.

The #Texans hired former Texans DT Jeff Zgonina as assistant d line coach. D-Line coach Bill Kollar was Zgonina's position coach in college
Quote:
Mark Berman‏@MarkBermanFox26

Texans announce Jeff Zgonina as the team's ass't. D-line coach & promote Russell Joyner to director of football information systems.

Default Re: Texans Hire Jeff Zgonina

He's carrying a lot of baggage back to the Texans.............GOOD baggage! A Sun Sentinel piece written back in 2004......nothing changed when he joined the Texans the first time.......no reason to think it has since then.

The Zgonina Way
12-year Veteran Brings Infectious Ethic, Leadership To Clubhouse.
September 7, 2004|By Dave Joseph Staff writer


Just a small excerpt:
Quote:
"You won't find another athlete with as much respect, as much experience, as Jeff Zgonina in this game," Chester said. "He's seen everything and done most of it. His passion runs so deep. No matter what kind of environment he's in, he still tries to be the best.

"I'm inspired by him to work harder and try to refine myself as a student of the game. He's not only a student but probably a professor. Having that guy around you does nothing but affect the rest of the team."

Brooks believes Zgonina is "a great role model for younger players" and has been a "stabilizing influence."

"The guy's experienced," Brooks said. "He's been on a Super Bowl team. He's a guy who's been released and signed, released and signed. ... He's know what it's like to be on the streets. He's in his 30s, 12 years in the league, and he runs around here like he's 25. That's how he practices, how he prepares, that's how he plays. He's focused on being a professional and he's focused on the game. He has a lot of respect for the game and for himself."

I liked him as a player. Not a star by any means, but a role player. Got to have role players.

Always nice to have blue collar guys on staff and on the sidelines. As for the question on Marciano....even someone on Jeopardy couldn't answer that question lol.

Why wouldn't it be thread worthy?

I liked the way Jeff played. Wasn't the most talented guy on the field, but there's a reason he was around like what, 15 years? Dude played hard. Worked hard and gave max effort, not taking any plays off. If he coaches like he played, this is a good hire.

Eh, I figured most threads these days have to have something to do with bad QB play, bad coaching, Jacoby or Marciano. I normally don't jump on "hater" or "koolaid" bandwagons, so it's gotten a bit boring around here lately.

Jeff played 17 years

17 years?? Damn Bro'!! That's tenacity, balls and a helluva lotta scrappin', each and every play.....

And YES!! Of course I agree with your point about "most threads these days...haters, koolaid bandwagons", et al. An obvious reason I'm not here nearly as often.

Default Re: Texans Hire Jeff Zgonina

I'll never forget the game he won (a game we almost choked away) against the Titans. Hairiest knuckles in the pile wins. This guy was a machine and a beast of durability in the NFL. He'll make a GREAT COACH. This guy didn't play here long, but was one of my favorite Texans.. never a star, just a player who scrapped his way out in the NFL for a ungodly unhuman amount of years. You can't do that as a 6th round pick without some secrets/tricks and great work ethic. This guy is a great addition and I bet we'll start seeing success from some of our late round Dlineman we now select.

Thumbs up Re: Texans Hire Jeff Zgonina

8 Teams 17 years 208 games. He played football under Bill Kollar and with Rick Smith.
This guy is a welcome addition to the coaching staff.
He knows what it takes to survive and suceed on and off the field.
I think it is going to be a great addition to the coaching staff.
Anybody with that kind of experience playing in the NFL that long ...he knows what it takes.
He knows how Bill Kollar runs practice and what he expects out his players.
This should work out great.
Welcome Jeff.....
