Default Newest rumor: Coaches go, Rick Smith stays

From Lance Zierlein's Twitter page.

Quote:
The word on the agent grapevine is that Rick Smith will remain as GM and be in charge of hiring a new head coach for the Texans

Smith will probably hire somebody from Denver.

Default Re: Newest rumor: Coaches go, Rick Smith stays

I'm torn here. I'm not a Smith fan. The drafts have been ok and they haven't hit in Free Agency. But it does break up the Denver connection and who knows what kind of ultimatum he gets as to what he is allowed to do. I saw the General say the same thing in his chat today so it is out there. I'd prefer they let all Denver associates go.

I really don't have much of an issue with this, as long as he hires the best coach for the team, not just some guy he's buddies with. Seems to be an ongoing trend with this organization.

I have zero confidence in Smith's abilities. McNair is making a big mistake if this is what he is planning.

How many head coaches has he hired?

We could have worst GM's than Rick Smith IMHO, we don't know why they didn't go after FA signings, we don't know if Kubiak was the issue or Rick Smith.. So if we end up with Kubiak gone, and Cowher in with Rick Smith, I'm ok with that.

He hasn't done what I consider a super job, but he hasn't done a bad one either.

Default Re: Newest rumor: Coaches go, Rick Smith stays

Hopefully, it will be a Casserly-like stay, with Smith hanging on through the draft only. Otherwise, another total fail by McNair proving he just doesn't get it.

The only way we will get Cowher is if there is a "clean sweep".

Hopefully Smith does like Casserly did and has a world-class draft on his way out.

I'm ho hum about it. Not really a big fan of this decision (if it's true), but like it more than firing Bush and letting Kubes stay.

I don't see Smith not hiring an unproven guy.

Meh.

I agree. To be honest, I don't know how much say he has in the organization.

I think we can give him credit for bringing in street FA's that overachieve.

I think he deserves blame for giving too much money to underachievers and not giving enough money to guys that do perform....but I'm not sure.

Maybe he'll go out like Casserly did after the draft.

McNair doesn't deserve the benefit of doubt. But, I'll wait until this plays out before panning the move.

And this was really my point. I'm not a Smith fan. But it makes me wonder what was the relationship with Kubiak(was Kubiak the #1 lead and Smith just GM in name) and whether he had Drayton McClain type limitations from McNair. I'd say no to #2 but I'm not sure why you wouldn't just call the whole experiment a fail and move on with a better GM.

I want them ALL gone. We need a new staff from top to bottom.

That being said... if they had to keep somebody, I would be more receptive to keeping Kubiak over Ricky Smith. Far more receptive.

If true, I would believe this rumor to be a mega-fail and it also effectively eliminates Cowher from the table.

If it's an either / or, then I'm fine with this "either" path. However, better have that strong willed HC that can control this "yes man".

Guess Smith was bending McNair's ear during all the games in the box and on the sidelines.

Default Re: Newest rumor: Coaches go, Rick Smith stays

Smith is signed through 2012. Why in the heck would we, the fans, want a guy who has not handled the HC process before leading the charge? Moreover, what big name HC wants to come in to work for a GM that may not be here after 2012?

This must be a trial balloon since I cannot find the competency in it. However, it reeks of the lack of competency that we have been seeing from this organization due to the cronyism and lack of experience.
