Hot off the presses - Frank Bush will be named new Texans DC. Good for him - NOW BLITZ!
I guess this means that Gray was the only other serious canidate?
Either way, I'll give Bush some time but I'm not very excited, or depressed, by this.
I am less than awed or inspired.
LOL, well I guess that's settled now.
Who knows? I do remember everyone drooling when he was going to be our selection before Richard Smith, up until we were denied the right to talk to him by Arizona. Makes me question why we're all so negative about it now.
I wouldn't say we're negative, just..."meh"...that's why I said neutral.
That caught me off guard.
Well, lets see what he can do. Maybe he will be a great DC.
I'm kind of "Ok people, lets get behind this" about this decision. This is what Kubiak originally wanted so now he's got it. The Texans will sink or swim with the coaches that Gary wants.
I want to hear some interview material with Bush and find out what he's got to say about where he wants to take the Texans defense. It's time for him to interview with the fanbase so to speak and sell us on his hiring.
This is great, IMO.
We get a guy who we know works well with our players, has ties to Houston, works well with Kubiak, and was his original #1 choice. I'm glad we're not bringing in Williams. Gray would have been nice, but it didn't work out. Time to move on and start signing up positional coaches.
Ahhhh... The power of observation...
From the Gibbs Interview Thread:
Don't go breakin' your own arm, pattin yourself on the back, now...
Did Kubiak tell ya' to give us a little warning? LOL!
I think its a safe pick, would I like to have had a gamble pick, maybe, it just doesnt do much for me right now. Hopefully Kubes and this guy will make a 1-2 punch type of team, including Shanny jr. and have our D bcak in at leats the top 10.
Alot of people on here called this one. The Texans were basically going through the motions with Bush as their man all along. John McClain has some positive stuff to say about Bush in his chat for what its worth:
John McClain: I hope Frank Bush gets it. Frank will blitz like crazy and have the linemen shoot the gaps to get after the quarterback and give the defense an identity -- everybody to the ball and hit until the whistle. That's the system he was brought up under.
I'm good with it. I agree with Herv. It'd be nice to have a PC with Bush having him throw us a bone about his defensive philosophy. Doubtful, but who knows?
Now, on the the Dline and Secondary coaches. Who do we have out there?
I am supportive of it but it's hard to understand why we only interviewed 1 guy. The other guy we wanted we couldn't have. Was Bush that much of a sure thing or what? I would have liked to play the field a bit more. But with absolutely no idea what Bush plans to do it's hard to be negative about it.
I don't like it.
Take the time time to interview SOMEONE else. . . ANYONE.
I'm never a big fan at jumping at the first opportunity. You should always look at all your options on the table.
It is still a mystery to me with Bush getting the dc gig why Jethro Franklin was axed. They were supposedly great friends unless something changed over time. See this from the video archives on the other board.
