If they're gonna play country then they should play "Achy Breaky Heart" .

Default Re: What are the Texans biggest holes, and how would you fix them?

I put this in another thread but think it's applicable here. My biggest thing is new DC/Secondary coach, plus some key draft picks and key veteran FA signings.


I really think Kubiak is going to stay as Head Coach. If that is the case, this is what I'd like to see happen this offseason and a few questions:

1. Hire Wade Phillips as Defensive Coordinator.
2. What's the deal with Gibbs? Do we need a new Secondary coach?
3. Phillips signs Marcus Spears as a pass rusher (FA).
4. Kubiak/Smith/Phillips sign Champ Bailey (FA) to add veteran leadership at CB.
5. Look for DT help, preferably a good NT and/or pass rusher.
6. Look for Safety help, we need someone with smarts and ballskills.

I think we need to get some veterans on this team on defense for a change. The time to do that is when there is a coaching change. Phillips would probably have some pull to get Spears. Bailey is an unknown but I havn't heard any rumors of contract negotiations with him/Denver and they're having a coaching change too. I think these could be two attainable veteran FA's. Again, when there's a coaching change, they tend to have a little pull with the F.O. to get at least 1 player or 2 that they really want. I think McNair/Smith like the CBs we have with Quin and Jackson and I'm sure they will improve, but I think McNair will be more willing to get some veterans back there after this season. A lot of it may do with Kubiak being on the hot hot seat. And although we've been saying this the last couple years, McNair is probably thinking THIS HAS TO BE THERE YEAR... or else.

Phillips sounds like a brilliant defensive guy. I don't know if we even necessarily have to switch to a 3-4 this offseason. We may play a lot of different formations next year. Come draft time, we need to draft the best playmakers that are available. If that's at WR, do it. If that's a DT, S... do it. We need difference makers on this team. Coupled with the veterans we have and will have added, it would be good. I also think Phillips gives McNair the flexibility if in a year or two, Kubiak gets canned we at least have a viable fall back guy for HC.

I don't change anything on Offense. Keep the staff. I would add some more depth through the draft and if there are any decent FA signings. Mainly interior OL help and WR. If there's a good prospect at WR, I'd take him. Jacoby pisses me off too much. I pray Holliday comes to form and is a stud KR/PR for us. A WR that could also return would be a huge plus.
