I understand alot of people aren't happy with an addition of Wade Phillips as DC and want Gary Kubiak fired. I too agree that it will not make up for the lack of ability to score within two minutes etc.... However after looking at Wade Phillips history as a DC and not a head coach, I'm having some second thoughts and am wondering if this actually IS the best move for the Texans right now. Maybe if we can see the improvements on defense like the improvements he's made with other teams, we will not have to score in the last few minutes of every half. Here are how his defenses have ranked in points allowed while he was the DC. Saints 81-85 81- 24th 82- 8th 83- 12th 84- 19th 85- 22nd Philly 86-88 (where he ran a 4-3) 85 - Prior to him being there Philly was ranked 10th 86- 12th 87-25th 88- 14th Denver 89-92 1988 Denver ranked 20th in points allowed prior to his arrival 89- 1st 90- 23rd 91 - 3rd 92-19th Buffalo 95-97 1994 Buffalo ranked 22nd in points allowed prior to his arrival 1995- 12th 1996 - 6th 1997 - 23rd Atlanta 02-03 2001 Atlanta ranked 24th in points allowed prior to his arrival 02- 8th 03- 30th San Diego 2004-2006 2003 SD ranked 31st in points allowed prior to his arrival 2004- 11th 2005- 13th 2006- 7th Some info about him in Dallas and what he did with their D: The Good I See Seems like he can get bad defenses and turn them into a team strength right away. Took defenses that were ranked in top 20-30 in points allowed and immediately put them in the top 15 three out of the 5 places he's been a DC. The Bad I See Anywhere he's coached for four years, there has been a roller coaster of good and bad seasons. For every two years of great defenses, he give you two years of bad defenses. Also, pretty much every place he's DC'ed at, he's replaced every head coach. Everytime he replaced the head coach it seems as if the organization was lulled into believing the team responded to him real well but all the reasons for him being fired were because he lost control of the locker room. I could just see the same thing happening in Houston and with our owner. Kubiak screws up and then our owner doesn't look for a better coach, he just hires Phillips and then things really go down the drain.
