Ted Johnson was just interviewed........he stated that at the Patriots, he played under Crennel for 7 years. He stated something that got my juices going...............Crennel builds his D with LARGE LBs and DLs..........especially fat boy in the middle, ala Ted Washington!

Will wait and see on the hire.

My gut instinct isn't so hopeful. My fear is that his best years are behind him and that he will stick to what worked, instead of seeing what will work.

So with the Pats out of the playoffs, does this mean we should expect to hear something about George Godsey as our other coordinator soon?

In a description of Crennel's 2-gap 34, the OLB's are described as "...passrushers on the edge, one who is a more one-dimensional pocket assaulter and the other who is a swiss army knife of abilities..."

Aldon Smith is 6'-4"/265 lbs & Tamba Hali is 6'-3"/275.

Now, J.J. Watt is a bit larger at 289 lbs and 6'-5", but rather than putting him at DE, why wouldn't he be a better fit as the "one-dimensional pocket assaulter"?

How about Clowney as that guy lined up next to Watt ?

Crennel says he's not building his defense around jj. Says it will not be about an individual but rather the team. Whatever makes the team more successful.

I like that. Plus I think watt will still get his.

One thing I've noticed is that the guys that I've seen comment so far from the staff have been about the team. The previous staff would gush about individual players. I haven't gotten that vibe from these guys.

Default Re: Finally: Romeo Crennel Hired as DC

It is hard to understand why fans are sometimes so protective of player self interests. The coaches want to win. Crennel/Obrien are not coming to the Texans simply to diminish JJ Watt's statistical impact. Of course the new staff will not maximize the play making ability of Watt. Any system, at the NFL level, built around one player is destined to be defeated.

The basic principal of the 2gap system is that it creates offensive uncertainty and opportunity for anyone of the back 8 players to become a difference-maker on a given play. What Wade's system lacked was disguise. Every year Crennel has a defensive coordinator his defensive rank in the red zone and turnovers were significantly higher than yards allowed. People attribute this to a "bend but don't break" philosophy. I think that is errant. His system can be very aggressive. However, it simply doesn't offer the offense high reward opportunities that can be recognized by the quarterback or predictably attacked by the play caller... An offensive coordinator could know with virtual certainty that he can isolate any CB or non-blitzing LB in man coverage on 3rd down. Crennel's defense does not offer that. Vic Fangio runs a very similar system in SF... watch them and note how many different coverages and blitzes are run in a game.

Good offenses can scheme against one player, particularly if they know the team's philosophy is built around giving that player opportunities to make as many plays as possible. By the way, Watt's skill set is such that he will be an incredible asset for Crennel's defense... If he plays DE, he will be excellent taking on blockers and pushing the pocket and playing the run at the LOS... He will also be amazing dropping into zones on zone blitzes... Similarly, despite his size, he can/may be used as the strong side OLB... Primarily rushing the passer but also very capable of dropping into the flat and other zones.... I actually think he'll be asked to drop 10 lbs and play the Willie McGinest position on defense.

Still, who cares! One of the reasons why talented players like JJoseph and KJackson haven't been consistent play makers is because they weren't put in position to make plays... They were asked to chase WRs in man coverage long enough for Watt to make a play... That's why our interceptions are so low... If KJ and JJo are put in position to jump routes, blitz, etc... you will see a lot more plays from them and see them give up much less... Any system is going to minimize some players' opportunities and highlight others. After this year's fiasco, I'm excited to see other players on the defense make plays and help the team win.

MOBILE, Ala. — New Houston Texans coordinator Romeo Crennel has yet to break down his new team's defensive personnel, so he's not prepared to say what his grand plans are with this unit. But Crennel did say, when asked whether the Texans would run a 3-4 defense (as they have the past several seasons) or a 4-3 front (as they are rumored to be switching to), Crennel, in essence, answered yes to both.

“We're going to run a multiple defense,” Crennel told a small group of media Tuesday after the North team practice at the Senior Bowl. "You’re going to see a little of everything."

The reason to offer multiple fronts?

“Part [of it is] personnel,” Crennel said. “Knowing who you got and what their strengths and weaknesses are will go a long way to determining how much we run of whatever we run.”

New Texans head coach Bill O'Brien already has watched every snap of every game this past season, and Crennel said he plans to do the same with his new squad following the Senior Bowl this week. But the chance to work with J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing and others does have him eager to get to work.

"That is exciting," Crennel said. "J.J. makes plays."

I'm actually in favor of being more multiple on defense. It's one thing that Seattle does so well, even though they are mostly known for their secondary play. The ability to give 34, 43, or 52 looks without changing the personnel on the field is valuable, as you can give the offense so many looks that they can't completely prepare for each one, and instead must spend time preparing for all of them.

It's pretty much the same philosophy that O'Brien has on offense. The more multiple you can be, the more you can take advantage of each opponent's specific weaknesses.

I had not heard the rumor myself, but between O'Brien's earlier hints and Romeo's direct statement of being multiple, we have the best answer that we are going to get until we start to see them play.
