Sometimes the smallest moves in the off season, are often the largest ones. With Richard Smith proving the inability to get the most out of a young defense, the Texans will make a change, to one of the league's best coordinators, Ray Rhodes. Wherever the guy has been, the defense has been successful. The move to bring him in during the offseason, was not to improve the secondary,but to lock Rhodes up for the year, with the prmoise of moving him to the D-Coor after the season. Based upon the Preseason, and week one against Pittsburgh, don't be surprised if the move is even during the year. What could it possibly hurt? Mario will be Mario & Demeco will be Demeco. The secondary, which belongs to Hoke, will be blamed on injury, youth, and Hoke's inability to make his guys better.The remainder of the defense will rally around wanting to become better, and finally getting rid of a defenseive coordinator, with no creativity. Right now, the Texans visibly need a change in scheme, philosophy, and energy. Smith has worn out his welcome, and his experimentations of players have grown weary. Just think, where might Mario be, without moving all over the front line, year one? How much better of a unit may the front 4 be, had they been playing in specific positions over the past 3 years? How much better the secondary, if the front four gets added pressure. It's a domino effect, and Smith is domino one! We hear so much about the speed of the linebacking corps, but we never see them in blitz packages, just chasing running backs and tight ends, from behind. With Rhodes, the defense will demonstrate a more aggressive nature and attack, rather than try an limit big plays. This philosophy may have worked when the offense was was poor 3 years ago, but it's rocking now and will continue to under Kubiak. My vote is Ray Rhodes Now, rather than later!
