Showed a lot of promise to me especially in coverage. If he and Swearinger can get past boneheaded penalties then I am optimistic..

To speculate even further, I bet Rick didn't like Gary's wife because she didn't bake him those cookies he asked for.....

I guess you missed the point of the prior post which was Kubiak wasn't dictating who played on D. Wade wouldn't have been siding with Kubiak, if Kubiak was involved at all it would have been Kubiak siding with Wade on a call like which DB plays (which is not a GM call at all). I wanted to see more of Harris as well but trying to lay him not playing more on Kubiak is foolishness. I'd look first at the DB coach and then at the DC. Whether Brandon Harris was on the field didn't even make Kubiak's Giveacrapometer.

Agreed in this case.

But to some on this MB are apologists for the Smithiak era. They are Teflon nothing sticks to them. Yet the Texans finished 2-14 last yr.

I agree with everything you wrote. That being said, one of my frustrations with Kubiak was the fact that he compartmentalized offense and defense... What excites me about O'Brien is that he has a much more holistic view of the football team... Collaboration is vital, I think, for an organization to be great. I think it is important that offensive and defensive coaches critique one another. How can a head coach not facilitate discussions like: "as an offensive coordinator, what things on defense give you the most trouble in this situation... what about our defense would you attack as an O.C?, etc..."

After all, shouldn't defensive coaches have valuable input for the offense (and vice-versa) since it is there responsibility to game plan and attack them each week?

When did you realize this?

Certainly not last yr when you made bets on the Texans lengthy playoff runs. (That you did not pay)

You can speculate, I can speculate. The difference is I'm not a bully about it.

Your martyr schtick is tired.

The difference is logic and the available information point toward my speculation, not yours.

My speculation is that the last group of coaches were strait up man cover , this group are going to be zone coverage . It will mean the talent needs are different so this can be a scheme that suits Harris better than did the last group .
