I wonder who's gonna have more of a say now that we have a DC. Does Kubes still dictate whos DL and DB coach or is that all Franks deal?

I'm excited about this Frank Bush. I hated Jerry Glanville, but his defenses were disruptive and created a lot of turnovers. They also inflicted a lot of pain in the House of Pain. This is Bush's pedigree. The Texans may be on their way to being a team other teams don't want to play.

MEH.

I saw this coming, but hoped it wouldn't happen.

I will continue to have hope for next season, but I remain a huge skeptic of the Texans coaching staff and their FO decisions in this regard.

Bush is a distinct improvement. I expect good things from his defense next year.

Default Re: Frank Bush named New Texans DC

The only thing that doesn't thrill me about this hiring is the timing.

If Kubiak was going to hire Bush, he could have done during last offseason, or if he wasn't certain then, then he could have done it half way through this season.

There was no reason to wait until this offseason to hire someone that was already on this staff.

I'm good with it.

Just picture this: Frank Bush and Gary Kubiak basically had an intervention with Richard Smith this year.

When you-know-who says that Smithiak was awful for letting Riley's contract go un-renewed, I stop and think "Yeah, well they also let those guys finish out the year and keep their jobs and their salaries and their respect, too. They could have canned them all and installed Frank on the spot."

Seems pretty generous and sincere, if you ask me.

All Bush had to say was that he counts Buddy Ryan as a major influence. That's a defense that looks like it still is in place in Philly: Blitzes, attacking, physical, and just consistent in their attitude.

I'm down with this move.

Default Re: Frank Bush named New Texans DC

Frank Bush's hiring doesn't do anything for me. Coaching doesn't count against the salary cap, so why are we shopping on the bargain aisle? He may be great and no one knows how we will do but the fact is that he has no experience as DC and has never called the plays before.

That ain't exactly the most qualified candidate out there, is it? If the defense still continues to underperform and prohibit us from taking the next step as a team, Gary and Smith need to be held accountable for this hire and we can't wait 3 years to see if it works out. Based on this hiring, we definitely need to go out and get a leader for our defense. Ray Lewis makes sense and I would love to add him to our coaching staff when he retires.

I just don't see how this is going to change the culture of the defense. He was already on the staff and we saw a flatlining defense almost every week.

This guy better work out or shame on McNair, Kubiak, and Smith for not getting a more qualified and experienced candidate.

I'm very disappointed. Very, very disappointed.

To me, this is like firing offensive coordinator, and replacing him with Joe Pendry.

What has he done, to deserve a promotion??

What was the Senior Defensive Assistant doing, when we gave up 24 points to Chicago, 27 points to Oakland, 21 to Greenbay, 33 to Indy, 41 to Baltimore, and 28 to Minnesota??

Was he, or was he not assiting the Defensive Coordinator??

I'd like to think it was less of being an "assistant," and more of being someone who took notes, tried to give his input when he could, and then had to let the rest of it go.

He was waiting in the wings, and Richard's poor performance opened the doors of opportunity that Kubiak had probably told him would end up happening back when he lured Bush to Houston.

It's like crack: Richard was addicted to a bad philosophy. He tried to kick the habit, via Kubiak and Bush stepping in and handcuffing him...but he fell off that wagon in Oakland.

Default Re: Frank Bush named New Texans DC

Frank Bush is saying what I want to hear, which is both encouraging and suspicious at the same time. I don’t think we have a lot to go on with the knowledge we have right now. I think the hiring of the rest of the defensive staff, free agent moves and the draft behind us we’ll have a better feel for what all this means.

That's a lot of beer between now and then, and I can only hope I have enough brain cells left to comprehend it when we are there.

It's a boring selection, they didn't create any buzz by going out a plucking up a big name. However, as to whether or not it's a good selection (a completely different concept altogether), there's only one way to find out....

How is it safe? Greg Williams or Mike Nolan would be safe. This is a risky choice. And, frankly, who cares if it is inspiring to fans as long as he inspires the players.

I think depending on perspective you could spin just about any candidate to be a risky selection. Hell, this is just a risky juncture in Kubiak's tenure as HC of the Texans. I think Bush is safe because he is familiar. It required very little leg work on the part of the Texans to promote from within.

I will wait and see the results before feeling anything about Bush as DC. I'll reserve my judgement until we have a body of work to judge. Until then, it's all speculation on our collective parts.

But I hope for the best! What else can I do?

I like this hiring, the in the house hiring is something that Kubiak seems to like, along with young Shanahan. It was expected and it was vanilla, but I have been given no legitimate reason as yet not to trust the moves made by Smith and Kubiak.

Bush was here for last years Defensive debarcle, which is something that perhaps gives us reason to worry, however because he was here for that he already has the blueprint in front of him of what not to do with our defense, so I believe we can safely say that the product we see on the field next season will be completly different to that which we saw this season.

Just wish we didnt have to wait another 7 months now to see how it all pans out.

Perhaps all Bush did was take notes and provide some input whenever asked to. He may not have volunteered to do anything because he may have wanted Capt. Smith of the Fail Boat to fail spectacularly for Kubiak and the FO to see....and offer him the job for 2009.
