Default Re: New HC candidates

I agree that Lovie is a smokescreen to get the interview with a black HC out of the way. That doesn't mean they wont hire him if their other choices don't pan out though. He is an improvement over Kubiak, just not a really big improvement.

You need to chill. We're lucky they're not blaming the whole 2-13 thing on us.

I think O'Brien already has the job so the 2nd choice may be irrelevant. The fact they are willing to pay 7 million to get him from Penn State further lets me know how much they think of Lovie. I like O'Brien though. His way can lead a team to the super bowl. I believe that.

Yeah things could be worse. I just hope they kill and bury the good ol boy philosophy they've carried over from the oilers and finally do what it takes to win a superbowl. That means putting personal unjust ways to the side and hiring and firing whoever it takes to get the job done.

A GM is an executive who sits in the owners box most games . You saying the GM is a token is up there for show ?

That's exactly what I'm saying about Rick Smith in the Texans organization. Not every GM in the nfl.

Funny how Bob kept the GM, but cut ties with the coach.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Thanks for saying it though.

Bill O'Brien will be the next head coach bet you I know that. Rick Smith will continue to be a puppet doing what he's told... go fetch Ed Reed... oh ok now you need to cut Ed Reed...

The one man on top usually is but the organization or group never is I understand it's 2013 you at least have to appear to be a certain way professional wise but if your running your organization that way it's dumb and you will never win. Ironically The city of Houston has never been to the superbowl and ironically Tennessee got there with Steve McNair as qb just as they left this city.

Nope. Just a guy that addresses the real issues of this organization. I do see Bob was ticked off about how Kubiak made the team appear to be more about loyalty to certain players which made Bob himself look like he was doing the same to Kubiak. Then Bob finally fires him and says we are not about loyalty and we do hold everyone accountable. Sounds like change but it's been this way since the 70's in HOUSTON. I'm no young buck speaking from emotion. Right now with situation of hiring a new coach and getting a new QB there is opportunity for change. I don't care if the coach or QB is black or white just get one that has balls to speak up, make smart/creative decisions and play with some authority. You do that and we will all be happy with results. Saying all that my opinion is they won't hire a black coach. Lovie Smith is too much of a puppet to me and you already have Rick Smith playing that role under McNair.

This thing about using the "good-ole boy" system is not always even perceptible to the person responsible. Whether it's choosing the same gender, race, or just somebody you have more in common with (you're both hicks, or both city-slickers), people in control do it without even knowing they do it sometimes. You have to choose who you think is the best candidate, and doing so without any kind of prejudice whatsoever can take a lot of self-knowing. It's really easy to be most impressed with someone who thinks just like you do, most likely (whether you realize it or not) because they are the same race, gender, age, upbringing, religion (more or less), etc.

It's really embarrassing. I wish they would just fire him. I want the Texans to win like every fan does. However I hope we get the first pick and don't screw that up. We need a GM that's going to do the job and not just take orders and smile.

Another thread hi jacked by idiots spewing garbage about Rick Smith. You kids need to put your controllers down and step away from Madden. You have no idea how nfl organizations work and how to work a salary cap. Rick Smith is easily a top 10 GM in this league and the fact you mopes don't comprehend that is mind blowing.

And that's because we are screwed cap wise and wasted all of our 3rd round picks last year ... or why? Make one single argument for Rick ... I dare you. There is none and people who hang on to him are just like all the fools that used to bash me for telling it like it was with Matt. Rick is a token, always has been.
