I don't like the 3/4. Capers ruined it for me. It's kind of like cherry tomatoes. I got a really rotten cherry tomato one time and I haven't touched one since. It left such a bad taste in my mouth that I never want to take that chance again. Dom Capers 3/4 is that cherry tomato and I never want that taste in my mouth again.

I love Cohwer, but leave the 4/3 intact and continue to build out our D as it is currently structured. There is no need whatsoever to blow up the building when all it needs is a fresh coat of paint.

You don't like the 3-4 defense just because Capers ran it bad in HOuston? That really makes a lot of sense, when there are a ton of teams that have ran it very well all over the league including the two best defenses every year in Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

Given the increasing popularity of the 3-4, there should be a surplus of 4-3 talent to be had at a discounted rate. For that reason alone, I'd prefer to stay in the 4-3. Add in the nature of our most talented defensive players, Mario and DeMeco specifically, and it's really a no-brainer.

That said, does anyone know what defense was run in Pittsburgh in the stint of LeBeau's absence, and by whom it was run?

I believe it was a 4-3, but I will check with a friend of mine who is from Pittsburgh.

Its simply not happening. That's why I never even let the thought of it happening enter my mind, and set myself up for a let down. I would so love to be wrong, but I doubt I am.

We've got six games left. The only way Kubiak ISN'T here next year is we lose four or five of them, and that's not going to happen. Face it, Kubiak is our head coach next year. Whether that's good, bad, or indifferent doesn't make a hill of beans. Might as well just accept it and go on.

I admit I'm a Super Homer. I supported Capers because I think that coach needs at least 3 years to something going. Revolving Doors don't work. I did turn on Capers eventually.

I have always liked Kubes, and still do. I think he can do. However I would love to have Cowher. However it would take Cowher years to get this team to the playoffs. He'd gut the O-Line, have to draft a couple of RB's, and don't get me started on the 3-4. It would take a lot of Free Agency moves and several drafts to get this team where it would need to be for him to be succesful. So careful what you wish for.

The Texans need to go at least 9-7 this year or I will be be scared. I think Kubes/Smith deserve one more draft to put this together. After that I'll jump on the fire Kubiak band wagon.

P.S. This team lost it's two starting gaurds, a Pro Bowl TE, and it's run game. If this would have happened 3 years ago, we would be 2-8 right now.

I agree. However it is nice to think we would have a coach that would refuse to get beat down in his division year in and year out.

That's part of it, I'm sure, but not all of it. I do agree though with the bolded part.

I would just like to say a record below 8-8 and I think Gary will have an A to B conversation with the boss and then he'll C his way on out the door.

How many years does it take? Seriously, this is Kubiak's FOURTH season. How much more time are we going to give him? If we go 8-8 this year, time for a new coach.

You know Tom Landry didn't have a winning record until his 7th season? How things turn out for him and that team? So much pressure in todays game, sometimes ya let go of a good thing too early. Just ask the Browns.

Honestly, I think the Rooneys have as much to do with the Steelers' success as any coach they've hired. The guy who interests me much more is Mike Holmgren.

Would it really matter or make a difference if he were to go 9-7 instead of 8-8 in his 4th season? I don't see how that would make any big difference. If he can't go past 9-7 this season I think he should be axed. I don't want him back at all, but I could understand an improvement like 10-6 perhaps for wanting to keep the guy around.

Yes it is, how sweet that would be.

It seems every year with the Texans there is a quote or rumor that is taken and run with. The Texans have yet to make that holt sh!+ acquisition. Until they start being serious contenders in acquiring great players and coaches, instead of just "rumored" to be interested, I take all these rumors and quotes with a grain of salt.

Question for anyone of you. How much longer does Andy Reid have in Philly if they do not win the big game soon and does he fit the Texans style of play?
