    Because XSF is the Control and the teams are the IVs?

    It is a known variable. Your 'get the coach out of jail' scenarios are pure speculation or bunk.

    Reshape the body - still on coaching even if your speculation is true.
    Experience - BS. He had 4 years here.
    Injuries - he didn't have many. He played 45 games in a row to end his time in Houston.

    So coaching isn't just 1st thing that pops to mind. It's the glaring logical answer.

    If it fits your narrative, it is.

    You're the one with the clear agenda. Can't even counter my points.

    Logical answer is he got fat and lazy and sucked.

    In fact he still sucks, but it's easier to look like a poor OG playing next to Tyron Smith than the total suckage he looked like playing next to Clark/Davenport. BTW with XSF playing next to Lewan and Vrabel cutting him should let people know how bad XSF realy is and how much $$$$ that lazy bast**d really basically stole.

    But carry on with your narrative, how many of the guys that were cut by the Texans last offseason and have managed to hang around the NFL still suck? Replacement level players at best.

    LOL, exactly and this was playing next to Smith.

    XSF sucked with the Texans/Cowboys and for whoever else he signs with, if anybody, he will still suck because he's fat and lazy.

    Enjoy life in the real world with the rest of us XSF.

    If more than 2 people say the same thing then there must be some validity.

    Who cares about XSF? He sucked as a Texan, he sucks as a Cowboy. He's history.
    This is about the Texans and what they need to do to improve next year. Without XSF thank God.

    Next season Obrien and staff really need to teach Watson the beautiful art of the hard count. They also needs to drive home ( protect your damn self) meaning throw the ball away. Stop taking all the sacks and unnecessary hits.

    Yes I want another OC. But will Obrien micromanage him. Will he allow him to do his job. Will Obrien try to force the weekly change in the offensive scheme.

    Gaines will do a great job again in acquiring what we need. But will those additions be coached up properly. Will those players hold up because it seem these players come here to get hurt.

    I like RAC but I truly think his time has come and gone. It's time for a change.

    I was on the fence about this - but now that I have seen it twice, I'm firmly onboard. This saying is confirmed.

    How
    How about this: How many players on the oline have been developed and turned into at least a pro bowl or alternate under Obrien/Devlin? After you research that, let's research that same thing under Kubiak.
    Winston was a 3rd rd pick, Myers was traded for a 5th rd pick and Duane Brown was the last tackle taken in the 1st rd. Show me 1 player on the Texans oline who has developed and is as good as any of those 3. I wont even mention Wade Smith who we got for peanuts from KC. It all happened within 3 yrs also. I will wait for your answer.

    Not so much since Wade. We don't play a true 3-4...

    We play a 4-3 where the DE opposite Jj stands up. He doesn't drop in coverage like a 4-3 OLD, but rushes like a 3-4 OL.

    Jj rarely plays over the tackle & our NT rarely plays over the Center. Or NT plays like an under tackle & our DE (3-4) opposite Jj plays like an over tackle.
