    I keep reading, we need some "Cowher power" or some "marty ball".

    Seriously, you don't think either of those two would come out of retirement to coach . . . ahem . . . cough . . . the the Houston Texans, do you?

    :yawn:

    I honestly think Cowher will be coaching right up I45 next season. Their team is very talented and his 3-4 defense is already in place.

    Marty is a dinosaur, and is probably enjoying retirement and spending missed time with his family after coaching for so long.

    Cowher would only coach near his hometown I think. So it's either Carolina or nothing.

    Really, that dinosaur coached the Chargers to a 13-3 record his last year there and left a loaded team that Norv Turner has squandered. He has been a winner everywhere he has been. I thought you said we have good talent, this should be a good place to come. You lay enough money on the table and one of those guys will come.

    I believe Jason Garret is already in place to take over. He makes more money than most head coach's in the league.

    Cowher would be perfect here in Houston. Someone to come in here and reclaim our blue collar roots.

    I would load up 50 Brinks trucks and drive over to his house and start throwing money at him.

    I would take Cowher even if it meant having to change back to the 34.

    We could totally sell them on building the team around Kris Brown.

    Dude, he's 65 years old. Don't you think he rather spend the rest of his life with his family, rather then coaching a bad team? I'm scare he might have a heart attack as well, after looking at game films of our team.

    I would love to see Cowher here as well, but I just don't see that happening.

    I mentioned Kirk Ferentz (head coach of Iowa) in another thread literally seconds before this one popped up, anyone have some thoughts on him or maybe some other potentials?

    My reasons for liking Ferentz: Does not get to recruit top notch talent but always produces his fair share of NFL quality players and has had a lot of success at that program. Seems to always have disciplined teams. His schemes are not complicated but I would argue that that might be a good thing if you look at the success of new coaches like Sparano and Mike Smith. Anyway, just throwing another name into the hat.

    I like Kirk Ferentz also . . . but Kirk Ferentz just got through signing a long term deal to remain the HC of Iowa. He loves where he's at right now. He's not interested in coaching in the NFL or anywhere else. He loves Iowa.

    I'd go Mike Singeltary

    If nothing else he would have kicked Sage right in the balls after the third pick

    Cowher and Schottenheimer??

    those guys are probably too mean. We like nice shiny corporate types who do what they are told and don't yell at the press.

    I'd love Cowher but I don't see it happening. I would certainly cast a vote for Marty. The guy has a proven record for turning around franchises. His dismissal in SD was because the GM just didn't like him. I would love to have Marty come in and hire Wade Phillips as our DC. Before people start crying about the 4-3, we are a crappy defense not matter how we line up. I just want a good coach!

    The Broncos miss the playoffs, Shananan is fire and hired by the Texans and Kubiak is demoted to OC.

    He would not come here for any amount of money. He has more class than that.
