How hard is THAT? Instead, he talks out of both sides of his mouth.

It's just really depressing, as a fan, to sit back and read all this crap that he's saying. The rumors. Speculation. Hey Wade: WE gave you a chance when you got dumped on your ass by Jerry Jones. Now you just use us as a stepping stone in year ONE here?

If he leaves, let the name of Phillips be stricken from the annals of Texas sports lore. Bum, too. He can follow his son and lead the Bucs out of the tunnel for their first game with Wade as HC if it goes down like that.

Sour taste in my mouth today. It should be 100% Texans Talk, and we're getting trickled reports of Wade supposedly a candidate in Tampa AND possibly interviewing too. Sheesh.
agree man, it is B.S that in the middle of our first ever play off run he is talking to other teams. he needs to be preparing the team for the ravens. I thought better of him than that, guess i was wrong.

He and his daddy can go live in Florida for all I care.

Bum can lead the Bucs out of the tunnel in the season opener if Wade gets that HC job there...because IMO, the name of Phillips--from a Texas sports perspective--should be stricken from the annals of Texas sports lore if he leaves this year.

I have a feeling the writing is on the wall, folks. The only thing standing in the way is his health and if that scares off Tampa Bay execs making this big of a decision.

Our good fortune becomes someone else's plunder. That would be just typical Houston pro football voodoo, IMO. TYPICAL.

Considering the remarks he's made on this subject, why would you expect anything different? I don't like this one little bit, but I'm certainly not surprised. How many times does he have to fail as HC and succeed as DC before he decides to just be who and what he is: one helluva DC and a decent, at best, HC.

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

It would be a shame for Wade to leave.

Not for the Texans though, for him. I think the best thing that Wade has done was show McNair that bringing in top coaches and paying them is WELL WORTH it. I think it's another thing McNair is learning about running a quality football team. I bet if Wade walks that Mcnair/Smith will bring another big name 3-4 DC to replace him.

For Wade though he has not accomplished much as a head coach. I really think he can build his legacy and become a Lebeau type of guy while here and that with Kubiak on the other side they'll be a coaching duo that will get equal credit.

Wade doesn't need to fall into titles and such like whose the head coach. I think in most fans eyes here he's getting equal credit (and some people give him more credit than Kubes) so I dunno.

I'm hoping the guy is just dipping his toe in the water.

If you're looking at a guy for HC, wouldn't you respect the guy MORE if he stood his ground and showed some balls by telling teams to back off until he's done with his current team?

I mean, if loyalty is an issue..if integrity is an issue...and you want your players to buy into the new HC coming into your locker room and leading your guys in 2012....wouldn't you want it to be a guy who has respect for the team he's currently WITH. And is with in the PLAYOFFS?!?!?!?

LOL. Yeah, stats are great. But it felt like there was more to the Wade Phillips story here than JUST his ability to know defense and make it work. I thought he brought a level of character to the table that the players admired. IMO, it's the intersection of his great defensive understanding AND his ability to be trusted by the players too.

Oh well, it's out of our hands obviously.

*on the flip side*

If he is really interested in a HC job, beating the hell out of the Ravens would be a great audition

*trying to think positive*

I acknowledge that he was the head coach of winning teams. I don't think he built those teams, anymore than Jim Caldwell buit the Colts when they were winning. I think Sherman is a very viable offensive coordinator. But like former Raider head coach Bill Callahan, Sherman hasn't distinguished himself as a head coach. He certainly didn't look like a special coach at A&M.

I remember Sherman was about to be named head coach of the Arizona Cardinals a few years back. But there was such a backlash against the hiring, the Cardinals owner (or owner's son) pull the offer off the table. There's nothing exciting about him and nothing you can point to that would suggest he is a great hire as a head coach. OK, he can win with Brett Favre in his prime. Unless Brett Favre is walking through that door, why hire Mike Sherman?

Phillips will interview with Buccaneers for head coach job

Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will interview with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their vacant head-coaching position.

The Texans gave the Bucs permission to interview him, probably Friday. Phillips, who helped the Texans improve from 30th to second in defense, hopes the Bucs will conduct the interview in Houston.

Im gratified somebody noticed, Phillips said. Well talk and see how much interest (Tampa Bay) has in me. Im torn. I dont want to leave Houston. I love it here. But Id like to get a chance to be a head coach again.

I guess I was just a little too happy this morning about winning a playoff game. The football gods decided H-town was having a little too much success.

I hate to root against Wade on anything, but I'm going to have to hope this job doesn't pan out for him.

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

The crappy thing about this is the players mentality.

Cushing, Ryans, etc...these guys seem to love Wade and now they have to be thinking about if he is returning next year. I'm not worried about if he'll have a gameplan ready for the Ravens. He will.

I'm worried about the players worrying about it.

I posted a link about this in the Head Coach search thread. Wade is just one of many they are interviewing. According to that ESPN article Childress is their top candidate.

McNair is going to think some guy like Reggie Herring or Vance Joseph learned under Wade (in only one year) and absorbed Wade's talents as d-coord.

I wonder if a guy like Gene Chizik is ready to coach NFL ball or if he has something stored up at Auburn worth staying for. Chizik is a helluva' defensive coordinator, folks. He had a top-ranked defense in the SEC and then went to Austin and had a top-ranked Big 12 defense in his very first year there. He knows defense, period.

If I'm owner of the Texans, I'm on the phone finding THE best d-coordinators I can find no matter if it's college or pro football, and I'm setting up interviews with them just like Wade is with certain teams out there. I'm even trying to summon the ghost of Vince Lombardi if I knew how to do it.

But the theme has always been McNair hiring from within. I don't think he could even find the right guy OUTSIDE of this organization anyways. If Wade leaves, the odds are not in our favor to maintain this level of defense we've enjoyed this year. Sorry to be a Doug Downer, but it is what it is. Replicating 2011 with a new guy is not my ideal plan for success in 2012.
