Default How about a new defensive coordinator

I think Kubiak should bring in Frank Bush or Jim Mora Jr. has the new defensive coordinator. Kubiak want Bush as his co-coordinator when he first took the job; now that Arizona has fired their coach Bush may be available. Jim Mora Jr. was a pretty good defensive 4-3 coordinator with the 49ers before he got the head coaching job with the Falcons. What do you guys think?

I think I'd rather not. Let us let our team get some STABILITY with a system before coaching changes. We are already losing the OC. I dont want Demeco having to learn another defense.

The defense played better as the year went on overall. Give Smith the time to be comfortable with the players and players time to be comfortable in the system with Smith.

Smith has brought this unit together pretty well. Still a lot of holes, but he's done a good job with what he has to work with.

Apparently Smith brings alot of fire to the team (Kalu said he didn't think Smith was being real until he saw it for months and months). A change sounds like a bad idea to me.

The defense was better than I expected, certainly considering that they were switching from a 3-4 and had a lot of injuries. I think I'd just stay with what we got and let them get better.

Default Re: How about a new defensive coordinator

The original plan was for Richard Smith and Frank Bush to be co-coordinators. But Dennis Green wouldn’t let Bush out of his contract. If not making them co-coordinators next year I think Kubiak should at least add him to the defensive staff.

Am I missing something? What’s so great about the Texans defense?

It's not that the Texans defense is great. Smith didn't exactly have the right guys for his system but still seemed to get them to gel in the second half of the season...all we are really missing is players...not coaches. IMO anyway.

I think the defense is a couple of pieces away from being solid. No need for a new DC. It's way too early for that. Hopefully this win will actually spark some good things for next season.

Default Re: How about a new defensive coordinator

I think that this defense is very capable as-is when the offense does more than crank out a single good drive per game. Once they reached the second half of the season they did a very good job (excluding the times when they were constantly on the field and the offense was giving our opponents ridiculously short fields over and over again).

With another year and some more more help I think they'll be very, very good. Adding Frank Bush if he wants to come here could only help. Ditching Richard Smith completely at this point would be a mistake IMO.

DC isn't an issue, just short a couple of players is all.

The only guy id bring in over Smith right now is Phillips from San Diego.

If we cant get him, then id rather stick with Smith, keep that stability, and give him a chance to build his defense.

Its interesting because Kubiak has already lost his OC, one of the coaches is rumored to be going elsewhere, and Sherman is in the running for the Cardinals job. Could be a big turnover in a hurry. We lost a lot players to injuries and now we are possibly loosing a number of coaches. This does not make for a lot of stability and I don't think this is a good thing for the Texans.

Are you trying to say that Kubiak will not be coaching the Texans for long?

What I'm saying is with all of the problems we already have we don't need any more and they are already on the horizon for whatever reason.

Smith i think did very well..

He lost Seth Payne and Travis Johnson (brought to the Texans to play a 3-4.
Other than Demco those are not his LB's and none of the secondary was his either... Mario had his foot problem.. faggins didnt play til mid season and injuires to other DT's hurt too. He had to convert Peek and Babin (3-4 passrushers) to a DE in a 4-3.

Hey I know he can do better with HIS players... just like Kubiak will do better with HIS players (O-Line and blocking system)
