.500 is about what I expect, as well. It can take a couple of seasons to implement a new defense, and with the looming lockout, missing those OTAs are going to set us back in that regard.

So 610 came on and toute breaking news to hold its listeners cause we all know the jocks cannot do that, Then they snub the fact that they have no news. Typical of a sorry ass radio station

According to Texans' Marketing, the team has the best medical staff
and facilites in the NFL. In 2011, we're gonna have Demeco, Cushing, and
Barwin playing as they did in their respective rookie seasons. Although
they'll start the season 5-7, at least they'll be the "most exciting" team
in the NFL.

What do we base this on?

I know it's difficult for you guys to see me or anything I say as anything other than the most wish-washy fan. One minute I'm on the Gary-Train, next minute I'm on the Get-him-the-Fck-out-Train.

But I've seen this argument before, I've argued against it before, yet it still pops up, still gets repeated, and people still believe it.

Gary hires his friends, so the fck what. They all do. Every coach in the NFL, when given the opportunity will hire their friends.

& in the case of Frank Bush, you're saying that he's been proven inept & incompetent.

When? When did you figure out that Frank Bush was inept & incompetent?

Was it after the 2009 season, when we fileded the best defense this team has ever had? Is that when you would have fired Bush for being inept & incompetent?

That defense was as good as the defense Greg Williams (who everyone here recognizes as a defensive genius) fielded in 2009. Statistically Frank Bush's defense bested or equaled Greg Williams defense in every category except turnovers. & while that very well may be the "only" stat that matters, it isn't enough (IMO) to consider Frank Bush inept. & damn sure doesn't justify firing Frank Bush.

2010, he had shown to not be able to handle the difficulties & obstacles thrown his way. Surely he deserved to have been fired. If you wish to argue he should have been fired at the bye week, I won't argue with that, but anything else would have been premature.

The Texans are almost like a minor league farm for NFL coaches. We bring in noobs and let them wet their feet at the expense of the club's success.

See, this is why you get labeled. Gary's friends have failed. And he doesn't pull the plug on them until they're in deep shit.

Let me give you an example. Pete Caroll hired his buddy a year ago to run his offense in Seattle. Pete just fired his buddy after a year.

Caroll tasted success, got addicted, and decided to do whatever it takes to build a winner, even if it means realizing his buddy wasnt the best choice.

Get it?

Gay should've been fired after his 3rd 5-7 season. Against one of the easiest schedules possible. TK how can you be so positive about Gary after four 5-7 seasons in a row. You continue to amaze me.
