As for the hand holding comment, that's just absurd garbage. A man in a leadership position hiring people that could easily take his job says a lot about a man to me. And in a very good way. If BOB hired a bunch of youngins for the job, he'd be complaining about how there was no experience, no "cache", the players wouldn't respect him, he just wanted some cheap yes men, etc.



It's obvious speedfreak doesn't like the hire. I think I could respect him more if he just said I don't like the BOB hire, and stop with the nonsensical comments.



Granted, we don't know how good of a coach BOB or any of the assistants are until the lights come on, but the track record speaks for itself I think.



As to Munch, that would be a fabulous hire. And to say no nostalgia or thinking this is Texans screw the Oilers - as a longtime suffering Oiler fan who idolized Munch and Matthews back in the day, that's rather abrasive and offensive. Besides that, Munch was known as a very good Oline coach. The hire would be because he is a great coach not because he had ties to Houston - the nostalgia for the bygone days of old is just the icing on the cake for me.

My intent was not to offend Oiler fans. Maybe I don't get it because I'm not from here originally. But, let's be real: the Oilers no longer exist. Getting nostalgic about them is fine. I'm just saying I don't want a Munchak and potential Matthews hire to get all of the attention and deflect from what O'Brien is trying to build.

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

Dude, express your opinion. Like you just did here. That's well thought out. The opinion is garbage imo for various reasons but at least it has some thought behind it.

But you haven't been expressing well thought out views. You're just taking pot shots at every decision made.

That's what is landing you on ignore lists, not because you're not a sunshine pumper. And BTW, I don't think the majority are Sunshine Pumpers - we (or at least me) are just excited about the coaching staff being assembled. It's actually possible to have a view that is positive toward the Texans without being a sunshine pumper.

While we don't see eye-to-eye on this issue, you certainly have a right to your opinions. You are not flaming anyone and are just presenting your thoughts.

Folks are excited right now, so you're just taking a little heat for a contrary perspective. Nobody knows who is right or wrong right now, so it's all just speculation.

Don't sweat it. I hope you're completely wrong for the sake of the franchise (since none of our opinions really influence anything), but I can understand your fears. I don't want to go there in my own mind right now, but you definitely have a right to feel the way you do.

Well, since you want to pull out the "I've spent money on this team" card...

I did the math and added up all the money I've spent on the Texans. All in - tickets, parking, gear, food, beer, airfare and hotel for away games - is about $15k. And that's nothing: I have friends that have been ticket holders since day one, and they've spent a lot more than me.

And guess what? We ALL wanted change and are excited about the potential of this staff.

Default Re: Mike Munchack being interviewed as office of line coach

Here's the problem I have with all of this..

Everyone is saying "we're really close". "We have the talent.."
"We just need a QB", etc. You can't forget about the 10-6
and 12-4 immediately preceeding the 2-14

If we change everything, all position coaches, blocking schemes,
etc. Then we're going to need at least another year just to
figure out new terminology and find out which players are going
to work in the new schemes (possibly out of position)
and which ones are not!

It's like we're throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

If we pull another 4-12 or 5-11 season, and BOB is a hothead
and we end up going along the Schiano route, what does it
mean for all of our star players than have payed their dues for
the last half-dozen years?

I believed we were close too. I was no fan of Kubiak, and
certainly not of the worst ST coach in the NFL. Wade's scheme
was no longer working, etc.

But to let all of the individual position coaches go without
any serious evaluation was a mistake...

It just makes me feel really uncomfortable about the way
BOB is going to run this organization..

I hope the guys BOB hires into these position coach jobs have
a "come in and work with the players" approach, and not a
"my way or the highway" attitude..

Another year and no trophy. New staff, some new players, reset and reshuffle the deck again. Onwards and upwards and all that horse$hit.

At least we have something new to talk about, and not another frigging year of when the **** is Kubiak going to be fired. LOL

Good Grief.

You're missing the bigger picture. This isn't just a coaching change; they're changing the overall culture of the franchise. The Texans have a reputation for being a Country Club franchise that produces weak, underperforming players.

In order to change that culture, you have to clean house, even if it means firing staff members that were good at their jobs (though, at 2-14, it would be hard to argue that anyone was any good).

O'Brien has no need to evaluate Kubiak's coaches, because he - and McNair - probably believe that Kubiak's coaches are not very good.

I think the way he's gone about it is great: get rid of all the coaches, and have your own people evaluate the players.

Of course it's your opinion. And, of course there's not enough evidence who is right. The guy has been here a week.

But there IS enough evidence - 8 years - to know that Kubiak's staff was terrible.

I'm cool with sending everyone packing if McNair is willing to tell
everyone we're in a rebuild -- and start cutting ticket prices, etc.

If you wanna gamble on a new guy -- and are willing to take the
risks of multiple crappy seasons to see it through then so be it.

But, if it were me, this guy is on a short leash. I give him 3 years
tops to show me he's going to build a superbowl contender.

If you're going to flush everything (and I mean everything) then
you damn well better be right.

But that's the thing: 3-4 years isn't a short leash; it's normal. Most coaches only GET 3-5 years. That is a decent amount of time to evaluate a coach, and to see where he's taking the team.

I'm a fan of giving a guy 5 years. But, you can easily see by the end of year 3 if it's going to work or not.

Let's not forget that Kubiak getting 8 years was abnormal in the NFL.

This team is getting exactly what it needed, a drastic change in attitude.

We needed a swift kick in the ass and that's what O'Brien is bringing.

Your way is the Kubiak way, and that didn't produce a killer instinct at all.

So, let me get something straight here..

Is a "KC turnaround" something you're hoping will happen, or are you actually expecting it to happen?

If you are on the "expecting it to happen", I'm going with speedfreek's take, hands down. I'm not drinking any of that Bob's 'I expect to win now' Kool-aid.

At least it would take the medias eyes off the trainwreck that is the Browns

Now a Texan he will be nicknamed Billy Bob. I am very excited about names I hear Texans are considering. Props to McNair.

I really don't understand why Bob is getting raked over the coals for this (besides by speedfreak,who I guess wants to save money on tickets) . As the top guy he should be setting high expectations. If anything I'd say he has done a poor job of it in the past. Or at least holding people to them. I bet internally the Steelers probably knew they were in for a dicey year, but no one was saying "let's just try to slide into the playoffs guys and hope for the best. Participation trophies for everyone at years end!"

I expect 6-10.

I'm hoping for 19-0.
