I'm not sure that it would be too ugly changing the system as there is some familiarity with it already. I worry about what the Texans could do at center though as Flanagan seemed to struggle with the ZBS and McKinney is coming off of knee surgery.

ATL didn't seem to have many transitional issues with improving their running game. And the best years at Denver offensively were ones where Gibbs was with them.
Interesting that we brought Eslinger in at the end of the season, a former Bronco C who has experience in the ZBS.

Weird conflicting info. I know you got that directly from someone with the team, but Chester Pitts on 610 am one time said he was never given a specific weight he had to reach or be fined.

Yeah, McKinney downplayed the weight thing too when Kubiak first came over.

I heard it from a couple sources with the team.

Maybe it only applied to a few guys on the line.

A clear indication that Smith is signing ZB lineman because Kubiak wants to go that way, and with the latest move on Gibbs it clinches it that's his very strong preference. Now of course he may not end up getting Gibbs and have
to compromise with the schemes that a different OC might prefer, like with
Sherman.

DON'T SAY THAT! HE'S COMING! HE ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY HAS TO SIGN ON!

Seriously, I said more than once this year that the O-line just looked like the lacked a mean streak. I'm hoping that Gibbs can help get them that inherent nastiness that I think you need to play in the trenches.

Default Re: Texans trying to hire Alex Gibbs...

To me this just indicates that Kubiak is moving away from a hybrid system that we were using earlier this year. I know Spencer doesn't fit the mold of ZBS guy, but I'm sure having one 340 lb offensive lineman will be good.

I think we are going to see a lot more of the Denver system next year, especially if we are able to land Alex Gibbs. Either way, these developments do not concern me, which is good!

I don't remember offseasons being anything bug a rollercoaster when the former regime was in charge. Is my memory being selective again?

Not only does this thread have a lot of good discussion and content, but the proper timing and use of youtube videos really push it into that upper echelon of oustanding.

I know I'm in the minority but I thought for the first time in Texans history the team, including the offensive line was coached up & played as well as possible given the talent, injurys & experience levels.

Regarding Gibbs if thats who Kubiak wants & it helps improve continuity its a no brainer

Kasey Studdard and my hopeful LT Alex Boone have a streak of nastiness and could benefit. See my thread BOONE, BOONE, BOONE! for recent Sports Illustrated article on Ohio State LT that looked good in Ohio State's recent loss to LSU.

I'll go check it out. I recall reading about Studdard playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder but he saw such limited action that it was hard to get a feel for his motor.

Not to throw ice water on everyone, but I have a question. Joe Gibbs is leaving the Redskins mainly for family reasons, I have heard one of the grand kids has luekemia. Should I infer that it is not one of Alex's children?

Matt at DGDB&D has a commenter who said he works at a restaurant where Kubiak, Gibbs and Smith met. Kubiak had a big smile on his face.
