    He's got to go. I've never seen a more undisciplined unit on returns and our coverage has now given up two return TDs this season. When multiple players get multiple blocks in the back called per game, that boils down to the coaching. Has to be the most overrated coach we have and I have no idea why he's still employed. You'd think coaching someone to not block in the back would be a day one drill in training camp. Not to mention Holliday is not really helping his case.

    Anyway I'm happy with the win, but it's definitely my top complaint from today.

    I agree with you. Holliday has no other job than to return kicks and he hasn't done anything yet. I'm giving them to the bye week. We probably have the worst special teams unit in the NFL

    Yeah, special teams have been in a steady decline for a few years now. At one time the Texans had a very good special teams unit under Marciano but it's been a long time since I've watched a kickoff or return without being scared.

    It's been awful. Utterly awful. Hate to see the need to fire anyone when the team is 5-0, but it's best to nip this in the bud.

    Marciano is the last original Texan we have left, and I've been trying to hold on to that, but, the truth is: he's got to go. Sorry, coach Joe. it's been a great run, we appreciate your work, but we have to move into another direction.

    The answer to the title of this thread is NEEDS TO BE FIRED.

    Ever since they changed the wedge rules the PR/KR teams have stunk.

    And this doesn't even speak to the stench that are the coverage teams.

    Why are Holiday/Keo on the team. They contribute net to nothing.

    I was aware of it, too. I guess tonight was the final straw.

    Our coverage unit is awful.
    Our return unit is awful.
    Our kickoffs are rarely touchbacks.

    The only strength of our game is FGs and punting

    Don't forget he drafted that kicker who's shown nothing this year.

    I said the same thing earlier tonight. Special teams have been the weak link for a while. Sorry, Joe.

    In all fairness, Keo did recover the onside kick the Jets tried. So he finally did make a contribution this season.

    Agreed. I'm not too pleased at all with our poor Special Teams play all year long. But 5-0 is still 5-0. The offense is going to have to step it up though. Hopefully Ben Tate returns against the Packers and we hang up a 30 or 40-burger during the next two games against the Packers and Ravens. Let's get to 7-0 going into the bye week. Check that, let's get to 8-0 by winning our next three games, which are all at Reliant Stadium against the Packers, Ravens and Bills. Some home town cooking in front of a sold-out, energetic and loud Reliant crowd will carry this team to an 8-0 record halfway to the season. Booyah!
