Default Let's lock Gary up for another 6 years

If for no other reason but to make some people really mad for a long time.

What say you?

I hope you are joking about prison time.

The only way I could be comfortable with that idea locking him as HC for 6 more years is if Wade is there every step of the way.

I have no problem with the man on a personal level but *cringe* at the idea of him as HC without Wade any longer than he already has.

Default Re: Let's lock Gary up for another 6 years

while I agree that what Gary has done to the Texans organization is borderline CRIMINAL, I think 'locking him up' for 6 years is a bit harsh.

And having said that, I think that, unfortunately, this team is in need of his Offensive Co-ordinator talents.

I heard Mike Ditka in an interview once say that he and Buddy Ryan, 85 Chicago Bears, couldn't stand each other. BUT they also were much better TOGETHER than they ever were apart.

I think this is the situation with Wade and Gary. They are much better together than they will ever be apart.

Let's take a look at exactly what Gary has done to this team.

Brian Cushing (1st Round Pick)
Demeco Ryans (2nd Round Pick)
Mario Williams (1st Round Pick)
Kareem Jackson (1st Round Pick)
Connor Barwin (2nd Round Pick)
JJ Watt (1st Round Pick)
Brooks Reed (2nd Round Pick)
Glover Quin (3rd Round Pick)
Troy Nolan (7th Round Pick)

Antonio Smith (FA Acquisition)
Shuan Cody (FA Acquisition - Detroit 2nd round pick)
Jonathan Joseph (FA Acquisition - Cincinnati 1st Round pick)
Danieal Manning (FA Acquisition - Chicago 2nd Round pick)
Quinton Demps (FA Acquisition)
While investing the majority of his 1st day picks & FA dollars on defense he has managed to put together a top 10 offense. Now that Wade Phillips has shown what can be done with the Talent that this organization has shown a willingness to go out & get, I think the job is a lot more attractive than what it used to be.

We might be able to entice a Del Rio (if he isn't offered a HC job) or a Nolan, Williams, Zimmer (may be available soon) to the job where before we were limited to friends of Gary.

While I am not ready to give Gary an extension on his contract, nor am I willing to say he is a good head coach, to say the guy is completely worthless as a HC (imo) is premature.

6 years... yeah, I know 6 years.

He took a broken expansion team to its first non-losing season in his 2nd season here. He then took that team to a winning season in 4 (total, 2 from the first non losing season) a record good enough to get to the play-offs had two teams not laid down for the Jets. Now 6 years total (2 from our first winning season) we are division champs in a division where there is a second team fighting for a wild-card, just like the AFC East.


All this, with undrafted players, low grade FA acquisitions, and a few 1st day picks on offense. & a 30th ranked defense most of the time.

If we ever get to the point where we can invest in our offense the way we have our defense, I think it's possible that we'll be a "dynasty" type team.

I thought you were talking what Wade Phillips had done with the assembled talent or the talent that Rick Smith had assembled.
