Default Re: If Wade Phillips gets fired...

He runs a 3-4. But a good defensive coach is a good defensive coach. It wouldn't take much turnaround in the offseason to convert us to a 3-4. We'd need to find a big NT and another linebacker or two. Mario can stand up or drop into a 3-pt. Cushing would excel.

Yeah it matters...

If Kubes is still the coach, then it matters...

He came in and immediately switched us from a 3-4 to a 4-3...

Don't see him going back to a 3-4 anytime soon.

But hey...stranger things have happened...

Default Re: If Wade Phillips gets fired...

Considering that Demeco is out for the season, would it really be too far outside the box to consider converting to a 3-4? It's not like we are getting much pass rush with 4 guys on the line anyhow.

yeah, it matters big time.
we don't have a massive DT to anchor the middle.
we don't have speed rushers at DE like you need in a 3-4.
our OLBs aren't suited for a 3-4.

and as bad as we're playing D now, do you reeeeeally want to bring in a new philosophy and have them THINKING instead of reacting.

oh yeah, it can get much worse.

News flash. The Texans defense is 32nd in the league out of 32 teams. So no. It really can't get much worse. It really can't.

Yeah it can get worse. Instead of being the worse team by a big margin, we could become the worse team by a huge margin.

Right now we are able to do enough defensively to allowus to win when our offense lights up the scoreboard.

I'd hate to see a defense that we can't win with even when we score 28+.

Wade freakin' Phillips ? Have you ever noticed a person that just exudes "loser" ? I know, I left myself wide open. Wade is NOT the answer and I cannot BELIEVE one would not read into his pysche, were he let go by the Girlz. We need a broken man, like we need to get rid of Mario. YES, there are coaches in the NFL that are GREAT assistants, or co-ordinators, but seriously.....

Default Re: If Wade Phillips gets fired...

Yeah I know the differences between a 3-4 and a 4-3.

I really meant after the season though. Does anyone believe Wade Phillips or Frank Bush going to get fired in the middle of the season? Jerruh isn't one to fire guys in the middle of a season and the Texans FO has been the same.

But if this continues and the Texans get into the playoffs they REALLY need to get a new DC. Even if Wade is available and he only wants to run a 3-4 I say you let him do it.

The only guy I'd be worried about not adjusting is Mario, can he drop back consistently? I'm not worried about Cush or Meco adapting to that...especially Cush. In fact I think Cush would benefit from it.

As far as the DTs that's the one big thing we are missing, hopefully that would be addressed though.

Default Re: If Wade Phillips gets fired...

wade's a proven commodity with a winning pedigree, i dont think you can say no if he wants to come here as a coordinator. that being said, i'm willing to bet he'll have a head coaching offer.

as for personnel, wade can coach the 43 regardless (especially in a 43/over) and we arent that far from a 34 defense anyways. we actually run 34 at times already. obviously a nose tackle would be the key component, but otherwise we're versatile enough to handle the formation. the biggest hurdle IMO would be convincing mario to play DE in a richard seymor type role. sure he can stand up and rush, but i honestly think moving inside will be an improvement for him while guys like barwin & cushing are better suited to play rush OLB. mario and okoye are double teamed as is and can generate pressure, okam's already a backup nose, smith's better on inside gaps, and cody can slide around. pollard would be better off with more aggressive assignments, diles would be better protected at inside weak, and ryans is plenty capable to shed blocks at inside strong. with bigger tackle oriented cornerbacks, we're actually more suited for the 34 defense in our backfield (in my opinion).

to be honest, and i've been working on this analytical process for a few weeks now, i think we may be better off switching to a 34 fairly soon - as early as next season.

A 3-4 requires much more depth at lb than we have. With Demeco out we are short for even a 4-3. We only had 4 active lb's today.
