I bet Ray has some stories he could share with the team about the Minister of Sacks

Whether he holds the official title of DC or not, rest assured he will be functioning as the DC.

I see Rhodes as a mentor to Bush more then anything. i dont see him as a future DC as much as I see him passing on all the knowledge that he has

Real coup for this staff the second time this off-season.

We've addressed the direction of our offensive line with Gibbs and placed a young up coming guy ina good position to succeed and gain invaluble experience behind Kubiak and Gibbs in Shanahan.

This signing hopefully will set or defense straight. Even if Smith isn't my choice by far heading the defense adding someone with the qualifications and superior background of Ray Rhodes will immediately make this a better defense.

Already quite an offseason and we haven't gotten past the SB. Great work Texans!

Another great coup by Richard Smith. One for the D and one for the O. All the sudden, our coaching staff has some real gravitas to it.

When hired by the Seahawks one of his first meeings went like this:

"Whatever you did last year, that **** is gone. We can't **** around - we have to win right now."

The players loved him.

Starks was a good prospect too. I know its an inconvenient truth but Babin was a below average football player and a horrible value for what we gave up for him and where he was drafted.

oh and thanks Rick Smith and thanks McNair for opening your wallet on some improved coaching. it was sorely needed and should help us a lot.

Anytime you give up multiple picks in ANY round for a player and he performs at the level Babin did for us it is a bad trade. Nowadays especially when guys like Willie Parker go undrafted, guys like Marques Colston go nearly undrafted in the bottom half of the last round, and TOM FREAKIN BRADY is a 6th round pick you need all the picks you can get to increase your chances of getting one of the diamonds in the rough.

Default Re: Texans could hire Rhodes as early as Jan 25 - Chronicle

Ray Rhodes is a heck of a hire for our defense. One of our weaknesses we needed to address this offseason was our inexperienced assistant coaching staff. Especially with Mike Sherman leaving we didn't have any names that pop out to other teams and make them say,"That's a good football coach, I might want to give him a promotion to get him to coach for my team."

Now we've added 2 guys that other teams highly covet in Alex Gibbs and Ray Rhodes.

I would like to think Richard Smith's bend but dont break defense will be nearly extinct now that Rhodes is on board, I hope now that a guy like Rhodes is on board he's on a short leash with his "aggressive 4-3" and Kubes/Smith wont hesitate to relieve him of playcalling duties in the event we let the opposing team's backup qb look like Joe Montana this year.

One more thought...

Does anyone think signing Rhodes would increase our chances of getting Marcus Trufant in free agency if he is allowed to test the market in March. Getting Rhodes AND Trufant would make us MUCH better equipped to compete with the Colts...

You listening Bob?

Trufant will be an "old" 27 next season. I'm not against him but keep that in mind.

If a season like the one he had this past season is Trufant on the downslide then I think we can get a few years out of him as our top CB....
