    Unfortunately, we need to get this started. We are not going to amount to shit with him as our DC. Our D looked horrible. Missed assignments everywhere and our players looked lost. That is squarely coaching. Man we have been cursed with some awful coordinators Fangio, Smith, and the worst Joe Pendry.

    We are not going to get to where we need to be with him at the helm. He was Kubiak's 3rd choice at best. He sucks. We have Ray Rhodes is a legit DC and former heard coach on the staff already. Bump him up now. Our players looked lost and that is purely a coaching issues. I have been banging the pot for the past year to get rid of this loser.

    Get the soap avatar ready someone.

    I'll be the first to agree with you if the regular season starts this way, but it's still just preseason.

    That said, I'm unhappy with the lack of pressure we're getting on Mr. Simpson and our inability to stop the run. Good God...we have a lot of highly drafted talent up on that line!

    I have to agree with this. I'm not usually one for calling so-and-so to be fired, but this has gone on long enough. Our entire preseason has been like this, and the past 2 seasons haven't been any different. Contrary to what Richard Smith may believe, we have plenty of talent on this defense and there's no reason for there to be blown coverages and horrific run D left and right. I'm sick of this man calling our defense.

    We can have first round picks at every position of the field and we still would have a mediocre to bad defense. Good coaching can take decent talent to play good to great. Bad coaching can take good overall talent and make them play like garbage. I would love to see what the top DCs in the league could do with this defensive unit.

    If our defense starts the season off poorly I would not be surprised to see Smith gone and Frank Bush replace him.

    Why wait till we get into hole and start the season 1-4. The "performance" we saw out there and the blown assignments all over the field merit an outright dismissal. I would can him at halftime if I were Kubiak. If Kubiak doesn't deal with this, his tenure will be doomed here and that is too bad. Texans fans have put up with awful football for far too long and we don't have much patience.

    I don't like for people to get canned. I have been unemployed before. But there is something for everyone, and this job ain't for Smith!

    At least we didn't get that "Hybrid 3-4" that people were talking about last year.

    Smith plus 3-4= Mario Williams in coverage every play

    We just need to tackle better. And we also need our CBs to grow up.

    Get used to the scheme, folks.

    I trust that as the season wears on and our young CBs have the time to mature a bit more, we will blitz a little more.

    The opponents didn't get any sack on us this pre-season now, have they?

    Enough is enough...get your ass outta here Rick Smith!! I'm sick of seeing our defense at 3rd and long and giving up 2 yards more than the first down. 2 years is more than enough to give your pot belly the grand EXIT.

    It's not the scheme....it's 3rd year players being out of position...it comes down to coaching.

    Well, at this point I'm convinced that we are not living up to expectations. You know me, I'm pretty quiet and willing to let things play themselves out...but enough is enough...let's replace Smith with someone who knows how to run a quality defense. We have too much talent to piss away confusing schemes.
