Kinda' like the Jerry Jones commercial where he snatches the headset from the yawning Cowboys' coordinator up in the press box: Ray ought to yank the headset away from Richard and let him sit out a few plays. Take a breather.
I know I do.

I don’t believe for a moment that our front office is dumb enough or cheap enough to hurt potential success on the field by letting the guy they want to be the DC rot on the sideline.

Rhodes like Gibbs is an old feller who can’t handle the huge stress that being a Head Coach or co-ordinator entails, so they come in to support those in the job with their experience.

I think that Richard Smith is locked in as DC for the rest of the year at least. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him here next year either. Stability and loyalty seems to be high on McNair’s priorities, I could be proven wrong, but only time will tell.

Actually, I got great sources that tell me Rhodes was brought in for the reasons I previously mentioned. Sorry but Richard Smith will not be around. If he is, Kubiak may not be around much longer!

First you say you have "great sources" that say Rhodes will be DC, then you follow up with an "If he is"?

Which is it? Who are your sources?

I'm ready for some Martyball....crying about not being able to win our playoff game sure sounds appealing to a fan base that has never gone to the Super Bowl in 40 years of pro football in Houston and a Texans team that can't even sniff the playoffs in 7 years of a new franchise.

I would take Marty in a New York minute. Kubes looks like he is just lost on the sidelines ... and the results show on both sides of the ball. This is just very frustrating ...... what looked like we were improving as a team has just gone south. I know it's early in the season, but teams must be licking their chops when they play us .... we can't get it done on either side of the ball. It's not crying Chicken Little, it's just fact!

The thing is though with Kubes is that its not like he hasn't been around for a few years. I mean the guy has played/coached on very good teams so he should know what he is doing out there.

Some strong rumors out there that the Raiders are firing Kiffin today. Somebody mentioned him earlier as a possibility.

We are hoping Rob Ryan gets canned as well as Kiffin since Rob is a good DC

Except for the loss, Richard Smith had a heckuva' better day than Shanahan and Kubiak's prolific WCO attack.

Richard Smith, come here you big lug!

Schottenheimer would be amazing! Man, we would instantly be a top 10 defense. That guy knows how to coach detail and get his players to perform. I think I can live with a conservative offense that pounds the other team and an agressive defense that pounds the other team.

Booya! This fanbase is getting the pitchforks and torches ready!

I'd take competitive Martyball any day over the pathetic, not-ready-to-play crap we're seeing now. Hopefully Kubiak can turn this thing around quick, but man, it is extreme disappointment watching our guys just flounder out there because they don't appear to be geared up for the challenge.
