Default Should the Texans go after Alex Gibbs?

Now that Gibbs is leaving the Falcons (via Adam Schefter on NFL Total Access) and Troy Calhoun is leaving the Texans for Air Force, as well as possibly Sherman, should the Texans go after Gibbs and bring him to Houston?

Makes perfect sense to me. Gibbs was the man who brought the zone blocking to Denver, is regarded as one of the best offensive line minds in the NFL, and has worked with Kubes before.

What do you guys think?

I'm calling it, I think we go after him.

Considering we lost our Offensive Coordinator and our OL Coach/Assistant Head Coach, I don't see why not.

Get it done McNair/Smith.

I think we'll go after him as well. I would be surprised if we don't go after him. Wasn't he rumored to be a possibility as our O-line coach last year?

Whit out question we go get Alex Gibbs. By adding Alex to our coach staff, we will have a better coaching staff on the offense side of the ball than we did last year and thatís always a plus.

Not only that, but we will also have one blocking philosophy as well. I may be wrong, so someone can correct me if I am, but didn't we have a mixture of zone blocking and traditional blocking on different plays since Sherman didn't have experience with zone blocking?

the pure "zone" blocking scheme that we saw exclusively during preseason rarely showed up during the regular season, and i cant recall a cut-block. we ran a lot more power I and man to man blocking during the regular season with some zone sprinkled in. atleast, that's what i saw.

Thats a fact Jack, Gibbs only came to work a few days during the week, helped with the game plan. He put in a little more time during training camp. Gibbs suffers from manic depression. He has been trying to get out since he left Denver but they "keep dragging him back in."

Gibbs out of Atlanta? WOW! There is going to be a pretty big bidding war over this guy, let's hope we com out on top! Landing Alex Gibbs would be HUGE for us! And the timing is perfect since Sherman doesn't seem to plan on staying here another year. I'm definitely keeping my whole body crossed on this one! Gibbs, come to Houston! Puh-Lease!!!
