Lock if already posted and move if needed, thanks.
Houston Texans were "On the clock" today. Wouldn't say it's anything new or haven't heard but whatever
Good start(beat Colts)
Bad finish(finished 2-8)
Even with a 37-43, retained Kubiak, hired Phillips
Tirico: 9-7 coming into last year. A sheek pick. The failure in North Texas now seen as the guy who could maybe save the Houston Texans. Phillips comes in as DC.
Mort: Maybe can save Kubiak's job because I believe this is it for him.
Dilfer: People think anytime you go from 4-3 to 3-4 you're just going to sprinkle fairy dust and then just get better on D. Every single week, a O exposes a new weakness on their D. That tells me their back half of roster isnt developed. This D is pathetic. You better develop back half if you think you're playing better D..
Tirico: Williams, Cushing have to re-adjust. Cushing with good rookie year, followed by down year.
Kiper: OLB still a need. Look at who can be a DeMarcus Ware type. Quinn could be that guy. Didnt play this year. Athletic, natural pass rusher. Could use another CB/WR. Could surprise people and take Julio Jones but I think 3-4 OLB is where they'll look. Had Quinn played this year, he'd been first, second, or third overall pick so getting great value at this point in the draft.
Mort: Is this smart switching defenses? Didnt work well for Redskins last year like people thought but Phillips scheme being more of 1 gap, not 2 gap. Can Mario, Cushing convert? Dont forget they lost heart and soul in DeMeco. He's back. I think if they get the back end fixed, they could make the playoffs.
Tirico: Couldnt cover anyone. Secondary torched. Reason Kubiak is still there is the O.
