This is over on the Texans website, but not sure everyone gets over there to see it. http://www.houstontexans.com/news/Story.asp?story_id=5151 (on moving DE Mario Williams or LB DeMeco Ryans and the direction of the defense under a new defensive coordinator) Ill go back to the coordinator. Obviously, we decided to go in a new direction this offseason. We just felt like we werent making the progress that we needed to be making from a year-to-year basis. Frank will take over from that standpoint. Our philosophy is not going to change much; we are still going to be a 4-3 football team from that standpoint. Hopefully, the direction and what we become on the defensive side of the ball will be more aggressive and naturally be better. (on if the Texans are looking to be a more aggressive pass-rushing team) First off, we have to establish an identity, exactly what we want to be from a standpoint of our base defense, what we are going to play, the simplicity of what we are doing and doing that good. I think if you are simple from that standpoint, your players can naturally be more aggressive. So we have to establish that first. Whether we pressure more or not will have to do with how we are playing on the backend. Well wait to see what happens here through free agency and the draft, but obviously weve got to get better on the defensive side of the ball. (on how good DE Mario Williams can be) Obviously, there is another step for him to take. In my opinion, hes taken steps forward as a player all three years. I thought he had a Pro Bowl year in year two, even though he didnt make it that year. Of course, he had a Pro Bowl year this season, but he can definitely get better. He still is very, very young. He wants to get better; he listens. The game has become easy for him from a preparation standpoint, and when that happens for a player, usually their talent starts to really take over. So I think you can see him continue to step forward. (on getting Williams help on the opposite side) Thats obviously an important part of our football team. We feel like weve got to get him some help. Weve got to get better pressuring the quarterback and weve got to get better as a defense as a whole. But Marios career could improve drastically the more help we can get him upfront, so that is a point of emphasis for our football team.
