can you name some defensive free agents who meet Ray Rhodes "prevent" defensive scheme the Texans could target?

This a coup for the Texans and Kubiak. The defense was a mess last year. The bad news is this probably keeps Richard Smith on board for a time.

Now does Rhodes help us keep Demps ? Or aquire a certain free agent named Marcus Trufant ?

Which sounds identical to the way we were playing after Dunta went down. Alot of zone schemes to which I've never been a fan.

I'll have to look at the lists...but I'm not sure exactly how the 2008 defense is going to change at this point...I mean, he is an asst db coach. How much authority does and assistant position coach have in the scheme?

I understand its all speculation anyway, but I would trust your opinion in this matter. I've enjoyed reading your posts for years now & usually they are spot on. I've said this, Texans fans know their team better than anyone else out there even those in the profession sometimes, its both cool & amazing function of a board like this so kudos to all the mods who make it happen

Fan of it or not, the rules of today's NFL dictate a lot of zone defense. Other than GB, I can't think of a good NFL defense that plays predominately man coverage.

I can understand running zone periodically, but if a team has to run a zone type scheme 100% of the time, to me that's telling of a talent issue.

doubt he'll make a huge difference there since he's an assistant d-backs coach.

if he can do this

Defensive lineman Chad Eaton thinks the Seahawks already have improved. He described better communication with the coaching staff and an improved work ethic among his teammates in the short time since Rhodes arrived.
better communication can lead to less big plays, granted we need some talent back there

Nah, I'm with beerlover on this one. I'm not sure what his salary was or what it will be, but I'm willing to bet he'll be getting paid more than a position coaches asst. Otherwise, why would he come here? I think the title was given because they didn't want to lose or demote existing coaches.

no, they play man because that is what Fisher coaches....he uses his S in the box more than most teams and put his corners on an island as a foundation of his hybrid 46 defense...not so much 46 now, but he is a heavy man concept believer and always has been way back to his days here in Houston.
