Default Re: Did Kubiak just call out Richard Smith?

My understanding is that we have interchangeable safeties, and that's why we don't use a true FS. What I want to know is: Is this just a Rickard Smith thing, or is it also a Kubiak thing? If it's just a Smith thing, that's all the more reason to see him gone. I'm don't like the way this team handles the safety positions, and I'd LOVE to spend a high pick on a true FS. I wouldn't even mind following it with another CB, although that MAY not be necessary.

This interchangeable stuff does NOT work. It just lets the offense know that they're best wide-out can outrun coverage on BOTH sides.

I don't know but apparently the Broncos run the same CB to a side thing.

It is not just about one play - it is about understanding the team and the situation in the game. Start of the fourth quarter and coming off a touchdown - we didn't need to get a sack in the endzone, we needed to just keep them in front of us and make them march 95 plus yards and score on us. The 1 thing the coaching staff had to prevent was allowing them to make a quick score - and they completely failed.

That pretty well sums it up.

Default Re: Did Kubiak just call out Richard Smith?

Did anyone else notice a number of DL stunts that put 3 & 4 guys trying to blast thru the same gap? I like the "overload one side" idea, but these guys just ran into each other AND the Lions OL. We never seem to stunt from unexpected directions at unexpected times and usually get picked up anyways. Is this a talent or scheme problem?

You could make the case that it's "the blind leading the blind."

The Bengals self destructed in the 4th quarter of the 38-10 loss to Pittsburgh last Sunday when both their offense and defense collapsed, missing tackles, blowing coverages and dropping passes (resulting in 3 Steelers TDs).....................remind any of you of a familiar pattern? I hope not, but if we aren't careful, this upcoming game could turn into who puts out the greatest effort to lose the game in the 4th quarter..........."hot potato" at its best.

The Texans lack, have lacked & always lacked since inception speed W/coverage skills over the top with their safeties which should directly point the curser @ the biggest hole on this team, FS. blame Smith all day & his coaching staff but until Rick Smith can address this position with some speed in the draft plays like this will happen unless Texans use cover 2 or soft zone prevent & nobody wants that do they?
Lack of talent doesnt excuse poor play calling! You cannot under any circumstances expect that paticular defense to work in that situation. No matter who is playing FS.

On 97.5 the other day, Megan Manfel(?) of the chronicle, said the coach's were taking full responsibility for that play. The personnel were in the defensive formation that was called, and it put the Faggins in a bad position to cover that play.

Good, we should let Smith take the responsibility for that play and let him suffer the consequences. Get rid of him already, what good does it do the team to wait til the end of the year? If you hire a new DC now then the players get a head start for next year and for the draft.

I've got no problem with that. I do think it's a little early to fire him when you're going for your 3rd win in a row. If we get to the last quarter of the season and the Defense is a weak link, then he's been here long enough....

That would be like waiting to shoot a person until after he's already dead.

yep , and it was the defense that put them in position to win the previous two huh ? .... 96 yard pass play from a no talent QB to a solid WR .... blown assignment.


Simth has to go and should have been gone yesterday.
