Default Mark Vandermeer and D Rob say Richard Smith is out.

So I went to the Verizon Wireless store this morning in Pearland, where Slaton and Dunta Robinson were signing, and asked them what their thoughts were on Richard Smith. . .

D Rob didn't beat around the bush at all. I asked him (while he was doing my signing) flat out if he thinks Richard Smith should stay, and he said "Absolutely not."

I then asked Mark Vandermeer (off the air in a side conversation) if he thinks Richard Smith will stay and he said, he doesn't know this for sure, but he expects him to be fired as early as today. He did not state that this was a fact, but that it is he was he expects.

Take it for what it's worth.

YO!!!!

I'm happy. The avatars worked, I mean they really worked.

If he is fired, then I think we need to go after Mangini for DC.

Cool Re: Mark Vandermeer and D Rob say Richard Smith is out.

I've always found players are surprisingly candid during autograph sessions.

BTW, I wish I knew about this one Only D-Rob signature I have has a certain #8 signature next to it. Time for a new one.

Default Re: Mark Vandermeer and D Rob say Richard Smith is out.

On air Dunta when asked about Smith said the D had more talent than was displayed on the field. It was a pretty marked contrast to the kind of answer given when asked about Kubiak earlier in the season.

When that question was asked, he kept a very "matter of fact" look on his face. You could sense just how strongly he feels about it.

Ummm.....

Not to be nitpicky or anything, but I don't really see anything in the original post that actually ties to the thread title.

Dunta - Should be out
Vandermeer - Probably is out
Thread title - Is out

Nothing new to see here.

He said something similar when he was asked about Kubiak earlier in the season. He was asked about Smith, but avoided the question and said something along the lines of "no matter what they call, it's up to us to execute."

Dunta's not one to lie, but he's seemingly not one to throw a coach under the bus midseason

I heard on Sirius NFL Radio that Kubiak will meet with McNair today to decide the fate of the coaching staff especially Richard Smith..

Not trying to stir it up or anything, but did he know you were going to post his name to that opinion on the internet?

Good scoop, I really am just curious if MV reads this and afterward has to change his shorts.

You are absolutely correct Bong, neither of those guys make personal decisions, so until it comes from the site, I wouldn't say it's an absolute.

These are the first comments I've heard come from anyone within the Texans organization, aside from Kubiak's unwillingness to comment on Smith during his news conference.

Champion, the mods are more than welcome to change the title if they feel it's misrepresented, that surely was not the intent of this thread.

Default Re: Mark Vandermeer and D Rob say Richard Smith is out.

This is good news. I believe Dunta and like I said before I don't think Dunta would resign if Smith doesn't get fired. The sooner the better. Please don't give Frank Bush the job. At this point we need a fresh start from an outsider who brings some of his own coaches. And no 3-4 defensive gurus. We don't have the players for it or the time to rebuild.

Not only that - but as much hell as we give Richard Smith, he's only part of the problem. I'll be happy if he's gone - but we also need some SERIOUS upgrades in personnel. I don't think our current defense would be dramatically better if the personnel remained the same. A little better, sure... but not a lot better.
