    This would be a total McNair thing to do. Sherman is well within McNair's network and comfort zone, and his stint with the Packers looks better in hindsight after seeing how Favre neutered his last two coaches. I think Sherman is a realistic consideration.

    But I also agree with Mortensen's assessment on the matter: McNair needs to start looking outside his network. This is a buyer's market for coaches right now, and it's not the time to be myopic in the evaluation.

    The way Sherman seems to finally have things going in the right direction in College Station I am not sure he comes here if offered.

    Yes. But if Sherman to Texans and Kubiak to A&M. This may be easier for both side to take. What do you think? Not that I want this to happen but what ifs you know.

    You don't look forward to the annual matchup of Brown and Kubiak trying to outcoach each other, only to jointly spin their wheels in the mud while holding hands?

    Hell no! A&M is finally having some success under Sherman! Leave him be, next year will be great for the Aggies if Sherman stays! The Texans don't need him, they need someone who will turn this franchise upside down.

    Oh great ... the Texans will never shed their "NFL Aggy" moniker now.

    Nope. Here is where he has been according to Wiki.

    Stamford HS
    Worcester Academy
    Pittsburgh (GA)
    Tulane (OL)
    Holy Cross (OL)
    Holy Cross (OC)
    Texas A&M (OL)
    UCLA (OL)
    Texas A&M (OL)
    Green Bay Packers (TE)
    Seattle Seahawks (OC)
    Green Bay Packers
    Houston Texans (Asst. HC)
    Houston Texans (OC)
    Texas A&M

    Honestly, I could care less where he is from. This guy doesn't excite me in the least bit. This just sounds like another "friend of Bob" hire to me which would produce the same results.

    The Texans' needs seem to be a lower priority than what McNair ideally wants. That's why this rumor has some logic to it.

    OK thanks. My bad, somehow I thought he was from UT.

    No sir, I don't him. He doesn't seem to have a good facepalm.

    If it makes anyone happy, McClain says Sherman not likely. Errr nevermind. Just take that fwiw, heh.

    Sherman story unlikely

    One friend who's usually on top of what's happening in the NFL told me on Monday that Kubiak is out and Mike Sherman is in. I've been hearing Sherman for two weeks. I told him what I tell everyone: No way!

    Sherman is a first-class guy who loves being an honorary Aggie. He wouldn't stab Kubiak in the back by talking about his job while he still had it.

    Sherman wouldn't be leading Texas A&M to the Cotton Bowl without Kubiak talking him into coming to the Texans and then promoting him for the job at A&M. Forget that one. Sounds like a Longhorn concoction hoping to get Sherman out of College Station.

    There was a local report Tuesday that Kubiak is out, and general manager Rick Smith will be put in charge of hiring the new coach.

    There was a local report Tuesday that Kubiak is out, and general manager Rick Smith will be put in charge of hiring the new coach.

    I also got a call telling me the Tuna is on his way. Bill Parcells said he wants to do it one more time. Nobody knows if that means overseeing an organization and hiring a general manager and coach or just coaching. Either way, scratch the Tuna off your list.

    Many irate fans want Bill Cowher or Jon Gruden to replace Kubiak. Some want Jeff Fisher or Tom Coughlin even though both have jobs at the moment with the Titans and Giants.

    No where in there did I see a substantial supporting argument to discredit any of those rumors.

    On Sherman, it doesn't matter if he hasn't been offered the job yet for the rumor to be true. I doubt McNair has opened dialogue with anyone yet.

    And Parcells? YES. That is one rumor I hope is true.

    People seem to be interested in McNair hiring a "colorful", even a provocative personality to be the Texans new HC ? Maybe someone like Grueden or Cower instead of the colorless Sherman ? Just don't forget that the most successful HC in the NFL, Bill Belichick, is probably the most boring personality in the NFL.

    "People" want a coach that can change the culture of losing. That coach is not Mike Sherman.

    If Sherman would come in with his running game, we wouldn't need to worry about a QB having an arm. He would be satisfied having a QB with a pea shooter.:)
