McNair is still going through the honeymoon stage here in Houston. He has nothing to worry about.

Richard Smith sucks. There are more qualified people out there. They arent being hired. Why? Is it because McNair is busy or doesnt have the time. No, its because he is too niiiiice and because he already has someone signed....who frankly, sucks. translation: too nice and too cheap

does anyone actually think that Richard Smith is our best option? if he is not THEN WHY ISNT ANYONE DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT? If it helps the team, get the damn deal done, and if you are too cheap or too niiiice to do it, then you are in the wrong business.

I am just seriously worried that Richard Smith is coming back in '08. It is frightening me. I am going to hope for the best and hope the guy gets fired and I will look to last offseason when many thought Carr was coming back for 07 only to be blessed by him being released like trash later that offseason. hopefully the same thing will happen but in coaching you cant wait or you lose. Just ask Kubiak when he tried to assemble a staff late. it is impossible and then you are locked into and choosing from 2nd rate coaches (such as Richard Smith).

FIRE RICHARD NOW!

OK ticket sales and parking is only a small portion of revenue You did mention consessions, but that does not count for merchandise sales, why do you think the Cowboys and Patriots have some of the highest revenue in football, it is because the teams win and can charge more to advertisers and the regular fans buy a crap load of Jersey's, Jackets, hats, and everything else concievable. So the revenue can always be expanded and only winning expands that revenue.

Why are you blasting McNair, why not Kubiak or Smith they are the ones incharge of player and coaching personel. Do you want an owner to fire the D coordinator when the HC or GM does not want just because it is what the fans want and or think should happen? That would not be a very good working inviroment, let the people you hired to run the football operations run the football operations.

I keep hearing that the Ravens defensive players absolutely Hated Ryan, and they wouldn't play for them half of the time. Then, he pulled that time out during the New England game, and screwed them over even more, and easily lost them the game.

Well, if you've been even remotely familiar with the Ravens since their inception, you'd know that offense was never their strong suit. This doesn't speak a lot of good for Billick the Offensive Guy. I really wouldn't want him to take the reigns at OC. Rex Ryan on the other hand would be a fantastic selection for DC. However, the man is more than head coach worthy. So it would only be a pipe dream to even contemplate the possibilities of Ryan as our DC.

I have wanted Rex Ryan as the Texans DC for awhile . I like his energy and passion for the game . He would be a refreshing change IMO . They need a high energy type guy on the sidelines .

The defensive players love Rex Ryan. It was Billick and his playcalling that the players had problems with.

I don't see Richard Smith being moved.

McNair invested in Kubiak and Kubiak chose Smith and they have been drafting to fit his defense (hence the DL picks).

I think their is loyalty being shown but I also think they are looking at the long term success of the franchise and want stability as they build towards something.

Default Re: Rex Ryan and Brian Billick available, coaching options for the Texans?

I do think Billick was a great OC. Until the Patriots this year, his last offense in Minnesota was the highest scoring offense in league history. With a 35-year-old Randall Cunningham at QB and decent, but not great RBs. Yes, he had Moss and Chris Carter, but those two were hardly the first great 1-2 WR punch the NFL has ever seen.

Part of what did Billick in at Baltimore was his arrogant belief in his own offensive genius: he thought his brilliance, rather than talent, could make the O work. Ozzie Newsome bought into that thinking and thus generally used his high draft picks on defense. On the relatively few occassions they wnet for offensive weapons, their success rate was about 50% (hits like Jamal Lewis and Todd Heap, duds like Kyle Boller and Travis Taylor).

In the end, though, the inability to get a QB did Billick in. To make matter worse, as a head coach, he did not have the time to personally work with a QB in the way he could as an OC. By the end of his tenure, Billick would have killed for a QB like Schaub.

Unless we have our new OC targeted, we should be beating on Billick's door right now.

Also, there's nothing on the offensive coordinator front.

Coach Gary Kubiak is going to take his time and interview a lot of candidates before making a decision on who will replace Mike Sherman. And it won't be Mike Martz, fired by the Detroit Lions as offensive coordinator Wednesday, or former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick, who was fired Monday.

"I like to have patience in these situations," Kubiak said. "I like my offensive staff. It's important that I have the right fit with the group, so we'll take our time. I'll talk to all the offensive coaches to get their input."

Quarterbacks coach Kyle Shanahan and former UCLA coach Karl Dorrell, who coached Denver's receivers for three years when Kubiak was the Broncos' offensive coordinator, are among the candidates.

Orrr.....Kubiak does most of the work on the offensive side of the ball anyways so why not have a young yes man there to agree with everything he does?

Just kidding, but if I hadn't kept up with the team that'd be the first thing that would come to mind.

I've heard by many that Shanny Jr. is an offensive guru.
