It's like, on a team as bad as the Texans were this year he managed to stand out as particularly bad. That's saying something right there.

Apparently Crennel has been running some weird practices at the Shrine game.

Hmmm...
Quote:
If attendees hadn't left by Wednesday's afternoon practice, the stylings of West coach Romeo Crennel probably drove them away—it worked for me. I don't want to belabor the point, as I've spoken about it in each practice column, but you should know exactly what I'm talking about when I complain about his practice routine.
  • Practice starts at 2:40; coaches mill around and talk to players until 2:50.
  • Offense warmed up by running a "two-minute drill" at 50 percent speed (let that one sink in), including a practice spike to stop the clock. Standing around people who have covered teams like the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars, no one had seen a practice spike as part of warmups.
  • Defensive backs spent at least 15 minutes standing around and listening to Crennel talk to them about what they should do rather than rep what they should do. One agent called it "surreal."
  • Twenty-five minutes into practice, I took a picture of the notebooks of two people who usually take copious notes. As you can see, there was nothing that had happened worth noting. This was still the case until about 45 minutes in.
  • During the Wednesday practice, there were three separate sessions of punting. At that time, numerous players not involved with special teams just stood around. It was better than one of the Tuesday sessions, when offensive linemen caught the punts.
  • Offensive players continually practiced against only offensive players for most of the practice. It's pretty easy to catch a pass when the "defender" is another wide receiver who is giving you a 10-yard cushion.
In a vacuum, each of these things could probably be excused. Yet over and again, "Good luck, Houston" was the refrain from onlookers who couldn't believe that Wade Phillips had gotten fired for the man running these practices.

On a positive note, the inclement weather had cleared up by Wednesday morning, and the fields had dried for the most part. This allowed the East team (run by Jerry Glanville) to have a crisp, efficient practice.

It's really hard to say. "We" were looking for Newton to be particularly bad & pretty much over-analysed his play. Brooks got away with a lot of poor play because of it. Wade Smith, I think, was the biggest benefactor. He was, imo, consistently the worst player on our offensive line. In both the run & passing game.

But, if you say, "Wade Smith was the worst player out there."

Somehow that's translated to, "Derek Newton played well today." Which is not the case.

Sounds like a lot of give up, but is that because he is 66 with plenty of money or is because he already has a job in his pocket and really does not care about the shrine game.

That's the question isn't it. One would think that if he was going to get the DC job here he would at least be looking a bit more closely at the defensive guys.

If its "give up" than I want no part of him.

It definitely sounds like something we should be at least a little concerned with, but for now, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and base my opinion on his past performance as a DC and not these reports. For now.

This is obviously O'Brein's fault. I told you we should have hired Glanville for our new head coach.

I'm not going to go so far to say Crennel wasn't HC material. It didn't work out for him in KC... all that proves, is that he wasn't the guy for KC.

I'll agree, that I don't care what the reporter thought. Unless he is some HOF coach, or had any success at any level as a HC.... couldn't care less.

Now, if the West gets embarrassed... we'll know why. If they kick ass.... we'll know why.

I have a feeling it is the latter.

I doubt that O'Brien is going to let Crennel run practices like that with the Texans defense.

What's kinda' funny to me is that a lot of pro scouts and GMs are at the practices, and with the way Crennel is running them, the pro guys are not getting a lot of information about the players. You've got a coach who will be working for a pro team next week running it, so perhaps a little bit of passive gaming going on?
