    That's pretty cool. I have no idea what he must go through in dealing with his son, but I have nothing but respect for him. He's one of those guys I'd like to hang out with and just listen to for a while.

    coaches and a few players have said in the past that he's the best in the biz. i don't know if other teams or players agree with that though. i feel like he's done a terrific job with the Texans. I wonder if he's praised as universally as Gibbs is in that sense.

    I've met the guy before too.....great guy with great morals (outstanding morals...(he's got all "his ducks in order"), just a guy that you want to go out and run through a wall for. Joe Marciano is a GREAT special teams coach (as well as a great speaker).....he's a asset on this coaching staff.

    I think he would make a good HC.

    You've aroused my curiosity. What's he doing checking into a hotel here in the
    Houston area when he lives here ? Oh that's right you won't tell us.
    Very mysterious ?

    Pretty cool. I love the way the guy reacts to a good special teams play. And when there's a great play he erupts. I like coach Joe.SWT, Don't steal his money playing cards you shark.

    I wasn't in the room, but I expect the late S and LB picks were for joe marciano . Just a note, get 65 on the colt KO coverage down on the ground first thing on Kick off return. What ever you gotta do. Who ever is assigned 65 and he gets by the first wave, cut them on the spot.

    My guess is San Marcos....nice decompression facilities in San Marcos

    I'm sure to regret this, but I have to know. What's so crucial about getting #65 on the Colts down on the kickoff coverage?

    I thought the same thing, but wasn't about to comment.

    Most of ttp's posts would fit nicely in the "Random thought of the day" thread.:spit:

    i'm gonna disagree... perhaps barber (s), but adibi (lb) has the ability to start for us sometime.

    #65 on the Colts is guard Ryan Lilja.

    Why Lilja?

    My bad 95,
    http://www.colts.com/sub.cfm?page=bio&player_id=344. Titan's let him through . I was surprised the head remained attached on the titan's KR. Can't let that guy get a head of steam.

    Just piling on the appreciation for Coach Joe, a friendly, decent human being who just happens to also be a kickass special teams coach, too. I'm glad he wasn't included in the mass firings from the Capers administration.
