It's about branding. It's about conducting your organization in a proper, respectable, orderly, classy fashion.

Rex Ryan is the antithesis of "Houston Texans", and the antithesis of all the reasons I love this football team.
Because Rex Ryan loves to talk? Sure, we all got tired of his act a few years ago but how much of that is his fault and how much of it is ESPN showcasing it because he's in New York. Fact is, he can coach defense. If it ever came to the point that he's looking for a job and the Texans have an opening because Wade left, then hell yes you take a look. I don't care so much about his attitude. It never seemed to be a problem in Baltimore.

What everyone has failed to point out is the relationship Wade has with Bum. They are very close, and I think that wade knows he is very limited on the amount of time remaining to spend with his dad. He has it made here, and gets to spend time with his dad. He will stay!

I would like to see Bum be named honorary coach for the Texans so that he will not only be labled with the Oilers in this city.

They were just as close when Wade accepted an interview in Florida last off season.

It's about branding. It's about conducting your organization in a proper, respectable, orderly, classy fashion.

Rex Ryan is the antithesis of "Houston Texans", and the antithesis of all the reasons I love this football team.
It should be about winning and only winning. That's why they keep score.

Unfortunately to many fans care about all of the periphreal stuff and the Texans org felt no pressure to put the best product possible on the field for a DECADE. However they did make alot of $$$$.

When the fans started turning on the franchise/Gary, BoB magically found the $$$$ to sign Wade to a big contract and bring in Manning and Joseph on huge deals as well. All of the sudden the Texans went from also rans to SB contenders. Funny how that works.

What are the reasons you love this team? Are they your moral compass? It's just entertainment. A winning team is much more entertaining to me and I personally dont care what Coaches/players do in their PRIVATE lives. As long as they win on Sundays.

Speaking of this model organization, Do you think it's right that they allowed D.Davis to play on a bad knee, destroying his career? How about last yr when they cut AJ's hamstring loose so the could get him back on the field, probably costing him a spot in the HOF? Manning playing with a bone bruise that C-N-D said had a good chance of breaking if he was allowed to play and that's exactly what happened? (Dont mean to speak for you C-N-D.)

See the thing is the Texans aren't a lily white org. They just do a better job of hiding their skeletons than most teams.

Matrix puts persoalities before winning. That's what has been wrong with this franchise for a long time. IMHO

And no I dont care for Rex's personality. But that wouldn't stop me from hiring him. He's a great DC.

Very, very, very true, and good point. I brought up Brian Cushing and the embarrassing "overtrained athlete syndrome" in another thread, and people were acting as if it never happened.

We have our secrets just like every other team. We just hide them better, and get labeled a "classy" franchise.

Default Re: Would Phillips leave after a Super Bowl?

I don't agree with the idea that Bob had no real desire to field a winning franchise and only ponied up the money for a name DC when the fans started to turn on the team and that threatened his revenue source. I think he's always tried to field a winning team and I don't think he's ever been cheap about it. I think, for the most part, he's hired people who were supposed to know what they were doing and then got out of the way and let them do it.

I think he's put down the ground rules, though. He wants a team built along the Steeler's template and that includes building primarily through the draft and being extremely patient with coaches. I believe he's put some stipulations in place that he wants a team composed of "high class" players but I don't think that means he'll say no to someone who has some history. He just doesn't want to become the Bengals -- going after high-talent, low-class guys who have high up-side but are also risky -- and he doesn't want to become the Redskins -- spending tons of cash on whatever high-priced free-agent is out there.

Decent-to-good track record as a coordinator, jury still out on the HC thing; not sure he wouldn't be sniffing after Kubiak's job

Crennel - yes
he's one of those "best-used-as-coordinator/not-to-be-a-head coach" guys IMHO.
