Default The Wade Phillips Thread - Status: Not a Candidate for Tampa

Quote:
“I guess people may have taken it the wrong way that I ought to be a head coach,” Phillips said. “I don’t believe that. I think I should be considered. If you look at my record, and you can look at all the people they’re talking about now, my record is better than most everyone they’re talking about – as a head coach, I’m talking about. If you want a winner, if you want experience, you know, I’d like to talk about it.

“But this is the best job I’ve had. It couldn’t be a better job than this right now, and if we keep going the way I think we’re going to go – and we’re going to be good for a long time, especially defensively, I think – so, you know, I’m not looking to go anywhere. I enjoyed being a head coach, I enjoyed the winning, and we’re winning here, so that’s important, too, but I think I could help anybody.”

Default Re: Wade Phillips: "I'm not looking to go anywhere"

When I first heard Wade had taken the job here as DC after being fired from his Dallas HC job, one thing came to mind.

He thinks Kubes will likely get fired soon and will be able to move up to the HC spot. You would have to be a fool to not think that talk didn't come up while McNair was interviewing Wade for the DC job.

Little did he know, by helping improve our defense, he has secured Kubes future here for at least another year.

I know Wade did not mean it this way, but yeah, it does sound like he'd like Gary's job. I thought the above quote was just funny in a devious-in-my-mind sort of way.

I hope we see a Gary/Wade coached team for at least another 3-4 years based on this season. Keep adding players and experience, and anything can happen.

Oh, I bet Kubes gets more than one year.

Can't have a Kubes without a Wade. I hope Wade will give it at least another year to get a SB ring and I think they can do it with both coaches at the head and some healthy players.

Phillip's calming influence has really helped Kubes this year well, the whole team actually but you can tell the difference in the play calling, time management - all sorts of ways. When Wade was gone, Kubiak reverted to his old ways faster than you could say gall bladder. The bottom line is that we need Wade.

Two guys running a business with a third guy working the banks and connections as silent partner. you see it work all the time as long as they respect one another and tolerate one another's idiosyncrasies. Wade can run operations for a few years while Gary runs sales. Bob is the silent partner.

If the two operating partners don't produce the bottom line results, switch positions and reload. That would be so cool. McNair is a pretty good businessman. He understands corner office bullies don't survive. Low key hard workers always have a job.

I would be curious to know when this interview was done. It seems to me the media is trying to sabotage us bringing this crap up now. Trying to make it sound like he is concentrating more on becoming a head coach than on winning this year.

Why else would they be bringing this up now?

Bad timing... really bad timing.

Quote:
ABOUT THE DEFENSIVE HOG INDEX


The Defensive Hog Index is our effort to quantify which team has the best defensive front in football. It's proven a huge indicator of success since we introduced it during the 2007 season: teams that are better in the DHI are 25-8 in the playoffs over that time, and the No. 1 team in DHI has won the Super Bowl twice (2007 Giants and 2008 Steelers).



This isn't rocket science, folks. The Defensive Hog Index simply looks at at each team in three major, easy-to-understand categories and ranks them by average in these categories.

The top defensive front is that which posts the highest average rating across the board. The Defensive Hog Index is based upon these criteria:




YPA – Yards Per Attempt. So simple, even you can understand it. This rates a defense's ability to stuff an opposing ground game.



NPP% – Negative Pass Plays, expressed as a percentage. This is how often an opponent's pass plays end in either a sack or interception. Defenses that get after the quarterback and overwhelm the opposing offensive line naturally force sacks and INTs. These negative pass plays are calculated as a percentage of attempts. So if a team foces two sacks and two INTs in 40 pass plays, their NPP% will be 10 percent (4/40).



3down% - Opposition success rate on third down. The lower the percentage, the higher the defensive success

Default Re: Wade Phillips: "I'm not looking to go anywhere"

Wade deserves another shot as an NFL head coach. He won't get one. That has more to do with the NFL mindset than Wade's abilities.

Wade is the head coach of the Texan defense just like Kubiak is the head coach of the offense. In this age of specialization, what the Texans need now is a head coach of clock management. All bases would be covered.
