Default Guess who's flying to Houston?

Texans | Sherman heading to town for an interview
Fri, 27 Jan 2006 19:37:10 -0800

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports a source said former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman was en route to Houston for an interview with new Texans head coach Gary Kubiak. Sherman is being considered for the job of offensive line coach and assistant head coach under Kubiak. "Do I think he'd take it?" a source with knowledge of Sherman's situation said. "Oh, yeah. Why not? Why would you go down?"


Better then Santa if you ask me.

I'm very hesitant to celebrate Sherman coming for an interview as our OL coach...Let's not forget how bad their line looked last year, and they actually have a few good players on theirs...Also, it seems to me that if Kubiak is going to try to implement Denver's zone blocking scheme here, it would be advantageous to get someone in here who is a zone blocking guru *cough* Alex Gibbs *cough*...Sherman does bring an attitude of winning with him though, and if you're looking for a "big name" hire, there aren't many bigger names available than his...

Consisdering that they lost two probowl caliber guards, then replaced them with a rookie and a rotation at LG, not to mention that Favre has lost about five steps in the last two years. Of course they looked bad.

Yes the Packers line was a little shaky this year, but you also have to take into account they lost their best lineman to free agency during the offseason, so they had first time starters on the line. Taking that into account they still did a decent job and a helleva lot better then the Texan Oline

Their O line last season consisted of Mark Tauscher, Will Whitticker, Mike Flanagan, Scott Walls, and Chad Clifton. Their O line allowed 35 sacks and Samkon Gado off of the practice squad rushed for almost 600 yards in 8 games behind their offensive line, and that was without Mike Wahle and Marco Rivera.

I'm well aware of the fact that they lost Rivera and Wahle, which of course contributed to them looking bad...I should've included that in my original post...

The fact remains, though, that there appears to be a fundamental difference between Kubiak and Sherman, and if our line is supposed to learn Denver's scheme, wouldn't it be better to have someone who has ran a zone blocking line before teach it to them?

Im thinking along the same lines D-Rek.. this isnt exactly what I was hoping for in relation to our Oline. I was hoping to get someone who could turn our line around in a hurry. Sherman does have a good deal of experience with Olines though.. maybe he could do something for us. I mean... Houck(sp?) isnt a zone blocking specialist.. but he does some amazing stuff with Olines.

Im gonna stay positive about it.. but it isnt what I was hoping for.

Sitting here thinking about this. Anyone else find it odd that Sherman, a head coach/executive VP for the Packers who led the Pack to 5 straight winning seasons and 4 consecutive playoff appearances would even consider coming here to be an assistand head coach/offensive line coach?

Will the offensive line coach rank higher or lower than the offensive coordinator? What about the defensive coordinator?

I'm not sure I like the co-defensive coordinator thing Kubiak was going for either. This all sounds like something an inexperienced head coach might come up with. I hope this guy isn't already starting to show signs of questionable judgment. This is how I felt about Casserly in the beginning.

I think Sherman must have a ton of respect for Kubiak. Plus, he's a football coach who wants to stay active in the game. I'd welcome him with open arms.

Didn't the Packers give Sherman an extension prior to start of season? Kubiak and Sherman worked together at A&M in'92/'93. I read Sherman turned down OC jobs with Bills and one other team. I hope we talk to Jerry Gray about DC.

Don't get me wrong, I would absolutely love to have Sherman here. It just seems odd for some reason.

My first thought was why would someone that could maybe land a head coaching job and defientally could be a coordinator somewhere want to coach our offensive line? Then I remember how big of an ego most of these NFL coaches have. Imagine the rep around the league Sherman would get if he could make our line go from worst to first?

These are exciting times to be a Texan!

# AP reports former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman turned down offers from the Buffalo Bills & New York Jets to interview for their vacant offensive coordinator position. Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak may hire former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman as the team's assistant head coach/offensive line.
The article says assistant head coach/offensive line, not OC...Maybe we could get Alex Gibbs to be our OC? Maybe I should just give up hope of us getting him...That would be too perfect...
