Default More On Alex Gibbs

For those of you who would like to know a litte more about Alex Gibbs I was doing some research and found this it's old but it's still a good read IMO.

Alex Gibbs - The most important addition in Texans history
The hiring of Alex Gibbs by the Texans will be the most important signing in Texans history when it is all said and done. Hyperbole? Maybe, but I think that highly of this move.

Gibbs will help on many levels. First of all, he is the absolute bests at getting his linemen to cut block effectively on the backside which is what creates backside running lanes when running zone plays, and with a fast RB, that can lead to big runs.

Gibbs is nasty. He teaches a nasty brand of football to his linemen, but not "dirty". His brand of athleticism up front also lends itself to being able to be successful with the right "fits". This opens up the ability to find "fits" in rounds 5 and beyond which means you can address other positions earlier in the draft.

Me thinks there may be a very thin line between "nasty" and "dirty" as it applies here. But we'll wait and see ?
And as I recall, that was much higher than a "rounds 5 and beyond" pick we used for the one and only OLineman selected in the college Draft since AG arrived on our scene.

I think that just means that Gibbs is okay with the linemen Kubiak has picked since coming here (Winston, Spencer , Studdard, Meyers, Frye)

I want to see what he's able to do with the OL since I've heard so much about him.

Right. Myers, Brisiel, Frye, and Studdard all fit the Gibbs profile of a mid-late round pick, or FA. Winston seems tailor-made for the blocking scheme. Pitts and Weary are out of the old regime, but still have viability as ZBS linemen. And Brown was hand-picked by Gibbs.

I think it's fair to say that Gibbs looked at the Texans offensive line and realized he wouldn't need to make wholesale changes in order to implement his blocking scheme. Just some tweaks. That may have played a big part in his decision to coach here.

I think you can't be nasty unless you'd be willing to be dirty . There's such a fine line or a whistle blow between the two that it's a wash IMO .

I also think one or more veteran players will be out because of consistency of play or they're to soft .

Gibbs was able to do some nice things in ATL even with a line that on its face, didn't look like good ZBS guys.

I think Gibbs wanted to come to Houston because he liked what Kubiak was brewing in Houston.

Agree. If Gibbs did what he did in ATL with the line that they had he could sure do the same with the Texans line.

In the past three season only one team - the Jacksonville Jaguars - has called more running plays than passing plays. Jacksonville boasted a 31-17 record during that span. But the Jaguars are not alone with a run-to-pass ratio that favors the run. Last year six other teams - the Vikings, Steelers, Raiders, Bills, Tennessee, and Chargers - all ran more running plays than passing plays.
Quote:
10. Houston: Alex Gibbs was hired to establish the run game and whereever he goes (Denver, Atlanta) they run the ball more than throw it.
Color me skeptical. We'll see.

I'm getting so excited about this team. Every change we've made is terrific. I really can't wait much long to watch us play some real games. I'm extremely interested in EVERY facet of our game now. I'm going to love watching this season and see how all the players play, improve, and how they take on the system.
