Default rumblings in Washington have Gray to Houston

They seem to think that Jerry Gray is likely to head to Houston and it also mentions safeties coach Steve Jackson coming along.

Well the Redskins were 7th against the pass, and 8th against the run.

I say they're both worth at least an interview!

I think your reading a little too much into it. It basically says he would like to have the job and that Houston is likely interested. No sheet. Houston is interested in a whole host of guys.

*I'm in no way knocking the selection if it happens. I like Jerry Gray, and think he would make a good choice.

**Wasn't Steve Jackson a safety with the Oilers back in the day?

Default Re: rumblings in Washington have Gray to Houston

Gray ran a 4-3 in Buffalo and he interviewed for out HC position but obviously lost out to Kubiak. I remember Gary Walker pushing for him pretty hard. Gray was the DC for Buffalo from 2002-2006 I believe. When you look at the numbers he had a few really really good defenses and a couple not so good. One thing that I do like though is no matter how well they did they were able to get to the QB on a pretty consistent basis. They only had 1 top notch pass rusher (sound familiar) in Aaron Schobel and hes not in the same class as Mario. Their LBers got some nice sack numbers but they had better personnel than we currently have. (Pat Williams, Takeo Spikes, London Fletcher, Antoine Winfield, Nate Clements, Schobel, etc.)

Overall I would be very happy with Gray as our DC. I think he will bring an aggressiveness that we have lacked. We obviously aren't there yet as far as the players go but I am confident he would bring a shopping list and know what to look for, likely at the top of the list would be a big ol run stopper. He coached under Greg Williams when he was the DC in Buffalo and followed him to Washington but not to Jacksonville.

Being discussed over at the Redskin's forum.

I don't know anything about the guy, so I can't really comment. The 'Skins fan seems to really value the guy though.

I would love to see Gray get the job. His name bounced around last time we needed an defensive coordinator.

I believe Gray was DC in Buffalo from 2001-2005. Had the #2 ranked defense in both 2003 and 2004, finished 9th ('03) and 3rd ('04) in sacks.
Like to see them bring in Rod Marinelli, has many years experience coaching DL. Tackles have to do a better job keeping Ryans free to make plays. Of course Gray knows DBs, another area needing improvement.

That's just one blogger/writer's opinion, it hardly qualifies as rumblings... but since Gray interviewed for the HC job last time around, I see no reason why he won't be one of the top candidates for DC if he doesn't end up a HC somewhere else.

I met Gray once when I was a kid when my family had Oiler season tickets. He made fun of my pants. Heh.

Several players believe that position is very intriguing to Gray (a former Houston Oiler with ties to that area), and expect him to leave the Redskins for a promotion. Safeties coach Steve Jackson has strong ties to members of the Texans' front office, and with their defense being reshaped, they might make a play for Jackson, too.

You were probably wearing parachute pants at the time and deserved it.
