    If Gary's tenure as Texans HC ends this season, who are the possible replacements, and who would you want as new HC?

    I am not sure who I'd want.

    I worry that guys like Gruden and Cowher have been out of the coaching game for too long.

    I'm also not thrilled with having a college coach move up.

    The real problem is all the good coaches have jobs.

    I concur. Sumlin is the easy decision IMO.

    No no no. Laugh all you want but I believe Gruden salivates at the thought of coaching this team and it would draw him out.

    Someone that is current in this pass happy league. Sooner or later, cut blocking will be outlawed. The spread is the way to go. The NFL is just years behind the NCAA this time around.

    We need a coach to put their foot up their collective asses. Not one that acts like eeyore on the on the sideline and after a loss. Cowher, Gruden, I'd even take Coughlin at this point.


    And if I had to choose a college coach, it would be David Shaw from Stanford.

    what makes gruden so desirable?

    gruden got canned from tampa. he won a superbowl with dungy's team.

    gruden runs the same crap offense kubiak does.

    NO THANKS

    Whoever it is I hope their a little more aggressive and possibly keep Wade but whoever it is, needs to be exactly opposite of the " Golly G, Aww shucks" mentality

    I don't care what he salivates at. I'd prefer someone fresh with a different perspective.

    That said, I'll take gruden over kubiak a day.

    I don't think Sumlin would be interested. He seems like the guy who would wait until his contract is up before he leaves A&M.

    Dan Quinn,
    The Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator is the only person on my list right now.

    A lot of times when this argument is made, it ignores the fact that he win the superbowl against his old team.

    And still, even ignoring that, being a finisher is what this team needs. The ability to take a team that's already built and win big with them is not a bad thing in this instance.

    I'm sure Tampa is happy that gruden was able to get them over the hump.

    Gruden is not top on my list either. He's been out for too long and he never really built a team that he won with.

    I'd rather see a defensive minded coach who brings in a good OC.

    I think the other option is to start with a GM.

    Ive been saying Kyle needs to be a HC somewhere for a while, I think he'd succeed almost anywhere

    Can I assume we're talking about the eventual replacement for Wade Phillips here? I mean, really I'm pretty sure Wade is the Head-Coach-in-Waiting here. Like it or not we're probably going to have to sit through a couple of years of Wade giving it one more shot before we get another shot at a legitimate HC.

    I was going to mention Kyle Shanahan as well, Bob might want to stick with the same system on offense...
