That was my first thought when I heard that Hoke was gone as well. I'm interested to see who they bring in to replace Franklin though.

Pretty simple. The secondary and the line play sucked.... Hoke and Franklin, exit stage left.

As long as we do not become primarily a zone team, I'd be ok with it. I can't stand zone coverage. I do understand it is neccessary at times, but I just can't bare seeing it 100% of the time.

I've been sicker than a dog for the past couple of days, but I'm so giddy right now I damn near dotted my drawers.

It just sucks to high Heaven we had to wait so long for it to happen. Now we have to wait even longer to see the NEW defense take the field.

Its been coming, happy its over with now, and we can look for a new defensive team.

One step closer to a winning record next year I think. I looking forward to less giving up 15 yards every pass play whilst we're winning in the fourth quarter

Sweet. So an easy step would be Bush move up to DC and maybe Rhodes as secondary coach. I wonder if we bring in someone else, Eagles secondary coach has been rumored...well more of just an idea. That could keep Bush as senior defensive whatever his title is as well as reconcentrate on the DL.

This is pretty exciting. I just hope we can have more of an attitude on defense. One that is more aggressive than we've had.

I wonder if Kubiak personally meeting with all the players during his "evaluation" before addressing the staff had anything to do with these firings?

Namely ... a few dissenters among the defense??


Quote:
Robinson a wanted man: Cornerback Dunta Robinson, the Texans’ career interceptions leader with 13, will be a free agent this offseason. He said on Moday that he wants to finish his career with the Texans, and Kubiak let Robinson know during their one-on-one meeting that the feeling is mutual.

“I told him I want him back on our football team,” Kubiak said. “I understand the business. I understand the world he’s in as far as free agency goes and those type of things. But I think the world of Dunta and I know we’re a better football team when he’s played for us.

“But I also understand there’s a lot of work to be done to get that done. I had a good visit with him, and so we’ll see what happens.”

Robinson, whom the Texans drafted 10th overall in 2004, missed the first six games of the 2008 season while rehabbing severe knee and hamstring injuries. Once he returned to the field, he helped to spark a late-season turnaround for the Texans' defense. The Texans finished the season 5-1 in games with Robinson in the starting lineup.

Good to see Dunta Robinson wants to stay in Houston

Maybe this isn't worthy for ESPN to talk about, but all they have covered since the Smith firing is more Jets and Cowboys BS. Same for NFLN and that irritates me.

If it were those teams getting rid of a DC I'd be watching the ex-DC's car heading down a freeway from a helicopter right now.

John McClain's video with the girl after Kubiak's press conference made it clearer Kubiak was firing some guys, Kubiak said he wanted Rhodes back and the same thing about Gibbs. When asked about Smith he said they where evaluating all the coaches, McClain said he has worked with the man for 3 years, you don't need to evaluate.

Glad my fears turned out to be wrong.

Looks like Frank Bush, Johnny Holland and Ray Rhodes are the core. Maybe Bubba McDowell who interned here this summer get a shot at the CBs.

I am not expecting a big name when Bush was saved.
