    Maybe he'll take Richard Smith with him.

    I am happy he is leaving but from my understanding, Kyle Shanahan will be the new OC next year and I am not really sure how I feel having a 28 year old OC.

    "If Mike Sherman leaves the Texans for the Aggies, the natural progression would have quarterbacks coach Kyle Shanahan becoming the offensive coordinator."

    Maybe Shanahan will bring some innovation. We've got the weapons to be a little more creative. The Pats put Seau in at fullback and the fullback at tailback. They ran a screen with Welker etc. Mix it up a little.

    At least now the Texans can get rid of their ridiculous "hybrid" running game and develop their own identity.

    Anyone interested in the Texans to talk to Charlie Weiss for the OC job? Maybe the Irish want him out.

    This is great news for the Texans. Maybe we can finally see some of that zone blocking system that we have been promised.

    LOL at all of you who actually think that Mike Sherman was the reason why the team is not playing well.

    Not surprised though.

    Where have you been? We've seen it for years now and this year was the first year we strayed from it in a bit.

    Maybe he should've worded it a little different. Something like, maybe Kubiak can get back to coaching the way he's coached the previous 15+ years.

    IMO, I think the change to our offensive scheme was a way for Kubiak to keep Sherman around while he learned what it takes to be a head coach in the NFL.

    Gotta love learning on the job at the expense of the fan base. How long will it take Shanahan to learn to be an OC? How long will this team keep selling out the stadium?

    Geeeeeezzzzzz!! From the frying pan into the fire!! Kyle Shanahan has done NOTHING to prove himself worthy of the OC position, IMO!! MS has gone from good to bad in a very short period of time. Whose fault is that?? Everyone on this board has been singing MSs praises since the get-go. NOW that he's faultering, whose to take the blame? Matt, Kyle, or Gary K?? For gawds sake, get rid of the Denver connection and get someone with SOUND experience!

    You know, I thought the same thing too. Keeping Sherman as OC gave Kubiak the tutelage to help him start his new career as a head coach.

    Hopefully forever. I really don't feel like going through the horror that is losing yet another NFL franchise and being forced to root for a team that I will never be able to watch live.

    I suppose the offense is both Sherman and Kubiak's vision, and that now half of that vision is gone. I really would've liked Smith to go to TAMU than Sherman, as our offense is obviously leaps and bounds better than the offense of last year. Either way, good luck in College Station Sherman. You'll always have a homefield advantage playing in Kyle Field.

    I don't think we will lose the team in any shape or form but when I go to the Saints game and 1/4 of the fans are in Gold and Black....it makes me wonder how long this franchise will keep selling out games going forward.

    Exactly. I realize that Capers was attempting to run the zone blocking system during his tenure in Houston, but when signing Kubiak one of the things that we kept on hearing was how he was bringing the Denver system with him. Ever since Sherman has been here, we have been running a mix of Green Bay and Houston but unfortunately those two styles are completely different and in my opinion have been hindering the offense.

    I know that Sherman leaving isn't going to solve all of the problems, Richard Smith would solve a lot more, but Sherman leaving will make this offense run much smoother.
