Default Texans to interview Whisenhunt (Hired by the Tacks)

per ESPN:
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...houston-texans

Although I'd like it more if the Texans hired ex-Cards, current Browns DC Ray Horton.

Default Re: Texans to interview Whisenhunt

Fly him in and give him an all expenses paid interview. Make sure you buy the ticket home. In a word... no.

He had a team that got hot for 4 games and went to the SB. Never won more than 10 games and was not even close to a .500 team.

I'm in favor of it. Maybe just one thread for each one but having a thread makes it easier to see the list rather than having to read 35 pages to get the comprehensive list.

If there is an article actually reporting a connection to the Texans then it can become a separate thread. Otherwise speculation and discussion go in the all encompassing thread.

I know you know this but just as a reminder for everyone.

Cool. Gives us something to talk about while other teams vie for the postseason.

Not totally against Wisenhunt. He's a Steeler, I'm sure McNair loves that. He coached a Super Bowl winning offense much more recently than our last coach. & he took a wierd Arizona team to the Super Bowl.

With Lovie Smith & Wisenhunt on the "experienced" Super Bowl coaching list, I'm more interested to see what first timers we're going to be looking at.

Whisenhunt career record: 49-53 (.480)
Kubiak career record: 6366 (.488)

Seems were going in the wrong direction...

I'm all for giving the guy an interview and I'm more interested in him than in the other retreads. The question is: what did he learn from the Arizona job? If you never hired a coach that failed in his first HC gig, then Belichick would have been exiled to Browns hell. So you ask the question. The guy coached in Arizona, where nothing has been done before or since. The owner of the Cards is terrible. He was a good OC in Pittsburgh. He made the tough decision to bench Leinart in favor of Warner, when everyone thought Warner was nothing more than a career backup who got hot for a couple years, and when the salary cap dictated to most teams that they play their $50+ million first round QB.

I'm sure he made plenty of mistakes as well. So that's what interviews are for, to find out what happened, why they were made, and what was learned. I'm definitely interested.

You need to put more thought into what you say. Lovie might not be our first choice for HC but he's probably the furthest thing from a punk ass.

I would hate this equally as much as Mike Shanny. Both of these guys IMO are over rated as hell as head coaches.

No thanks I have this fear he would bring Russ Grimm's no coaching ass to coach our oline and get our young QB killed like he did Kevin Kolb

Even though Whisenhunt would not be my choice, it should be understood that a factor in his subsequent downfall with the Cards was that the owner felt that he was being generous when he offered him two nickels to rub together to rebuild the team.
