is there any more reliable sources other than a messageboard.

I hope its true though, that would give us one hell of a offense.

I just hope we shore up the defensive staff.

Finally, I am glad we have someone named to be o-line coach and assistant head coach. I'm glad we got the offensive side of the ball taken care of. Now hopefully we'll start workin on the D. GO SHERMAN!!! GO TEXANS!!! Today is a good day.

Do we have an "official" source, yet. Good news, if true! For some reason, I feel good about having Sherman on the staff. He seems to be a solid coach.

From KFFL:

Texans | Sherman to accept position on Texans’ staff
Tue, 31 Jan 2006 19:10:31 -0800

Albert Breer, of the Metrowest Daily News, reports former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman told the newspaper he will accept an offer to join the Houston Texans' coaching staff. He is expected to be named assistant head coach/offensive line.

If this story is true, wonder if it means they may drop the zone blocking system ?

Huzzah! Great pick up in my book. I think this will help silence some of the critics about the hiring of Kyle Shanahan with the addition of a proven winner in Sherman.

I guess the KFFL report wasn't good enough for you...Here's the actual article:

Quote:
Mike Sherman spent 17 years in coaching before throwing his hat into the NFL ring.
This time around, it seems as if four weeks on the outside looking in was more than enough for the Northborough product.
According to a published report on Saturday, the ex-Packers coach was offered a position as assistant head coach/offensive line head coach Gary Kubiak’s first staff in Houston. Tuesday night, a source close to Sherman confirmed to the Daily News that he has accepted the Texans’ post.

Well, then if we do drop the zone blocking scheme, how would this offense be like the Denver offense, as we have been told it would by Koobs.

Forget that he is a former head coach. This is a bright offensive mind with experience as a line coach. That was our weakest unit and it has our best assistant coach so far.

Hopefully he will improve our individual pass protection more then anything. This would make it even more attractive to draft D'Brick...

Solid post. I'm looking forward to see what he can do with our people. I wonder if he'll have any influence on the draft. Sherman could be a solid addition to the team as whole.

The main aspect of bringing in Sherman is to improve the pass blocking. The zone blocking scheme will do its damage run blocking and with improvement of technique, but Denver's pass blocking was not overly dominant and Kubiak is trying to fix that. Sherman has done a good job in the past of teaching pass blocking technique. I dont think him coming here does much for us drafting D'Brick, if anything it further solidifies the fact that we will either take Bush or draft for defense.

Have to disagree with one point here . Denvers pass protection was FAR above average during the regular season . They ranked 3rd in the NFL with only 23 sacks allowed behind only Cincinnati (21) and Indianapolis (20) .

It wasnt until the Steelers Play-off game that their protection broke down ...and the Steelers did the same thing to the two afore mentioned teams in the play-offs . Cincy allowed 4 sacks to the Steelers in their play-off game , The Colts 5 sacks vs the Steelers while Denver gave up 3 . Not only did they sack them but they harrassed those QB's continually thruought the games .


I think this just shows how good Pittsburgh's defense and scheme is to do that to the TOP THREE teams in sacks allowed in the regular season during their play-off run .


On a side note , the two QB's who were sacked least this past season also put up the highest QB rating's .

Peyton Manning 104.1 ... 20 sacks
Carson Palmer 101.1 .... 21 sacks

A comparison to those sacked the most .

David Carr 77.2 ........68 sacks
Daunte Culpepper 72.0 ....31 sacks in his 7 games before finding his way to the bench due to injury . (Minn was second in sacks allowed this season w/ 54 total)

As for Sherman coming to the Texans , I think its a good hire but only a short term fix because he will be a head coach again in the not too distant future . Sherman was a HC casualty because of injuries and the fact that his O-line was torn apart in the last offseason losing two starters via FA ....
