    I'm calling it now, Rob Ryan will be the HC next year if Lose-iak gets the ax.

    Anybody w/the last name of Ryan will not be soft or take sh*t from any team!

    I'll fully support a Rob Ryan hiring, if Cowher doesn't come here. The Ryans have a great coaching bloodline.

    I'd rather get a proven HC than trying to get a coordiantor again looking for gold.

    If said coaches are not available, sure, why the hell not. Anything is better than this.

    yeah i'm a bit indifferent on hiring another Coordinator but i really don't think a proven HC will come here.
    Cowher- will want too much and Uncle Bob won't pay up and/or some team will simply appeal to him more
    Gruden- I could see this happening but it sounds like he's happy in the ESPN booth and see Cowher for other 2 reasons
    Dungy- Completely done w/coaching i believe.

    Ryan might be the lowest risk, or possibly Fewell from NYG.

    There are a lot of good candidates out there:

    Bill Cowher
    John Gruden
    Tony Dungy
    Perry Fewell
    Leslie Frazier
    Jim Harbaugh
    Sean McDermott
    Rob Ryan

    I'm not partial to any particular one at this point.

    Cowher has already been rumored to be interested in the Texans job, so I don't think it's that far out that he'll come here. I'm sure McNair would pay up for a guy like Cowher, who would bring a lot of publicity and some toughness at the coaching position for the franchise.

    My preferred order: Cowher, Gruden, Dungy (though I think he's done coaching), Ryan, Harbaugh, Frazier, Fewell, and McDermott.

    Where do I sign the NO petition? ha ha

    Please leave him in Cleveland for at least a couple more years. He's perfect for gritty Cleveland and the fans love him.

    His brand of football seems to be well suited for outdoor northern teams, not fast dome type teams. Besides, he runs a creative 3-4. Not a particular good fit for Houston at this time.

    The 3-4 will be just fine for this Houston team, as long as we get a NT. Have you seen our defense? Colt McCoy would throw for 350 yards, 3 TDs, and no picks against our defense.

    Personally, I care less who the HC coach is, just give me some good coordinators. Primarily on defense. Is it too much to ask to have a top 15-top 10 defense for once in 10 years?!

    Do you have anything to support this? Not attacking just interested in Cowher.

    I'd take Ryan in a heartbeat. Atleast him and his brother appear to have a pulse, which is more than I can say for Kubiak. That man doesn't get excited about shit. I'd like to see some emotion, one way or the other. Be pissed, be angry, be happy......something. The Ryans have a swagger and you can't teach that. It's just the way they carry themselves and players will follow that. I'm all for a change. This season has ruined football for me. I'm in a bad place..........:wadepalm:

    If Garrett turns the 'Boys around and still gets the boot, I'd take a run at him.

    Switching to the 3-4 would be fine. Our defense is already the worst in the NFL and the switch would mean ditching the Nigerian bust from the roster.

    I'd like a proven HC. Cowher, Brian Billick, or Dungy would be my top choices. Ryan would be one of the few new HC's I'd be okay with though.

    I called for Rob Ryan in a different thread yesterday!!!!!!! I love the Ryan style of football. And, if our OC called some stupid half-back pass, he might get this:

    No, Cowher will be Head Coach because the NFL Network sited in 2009 that "a source" said coaching for the Texans or Bears "would excite" Cowher. Oh and on top of that Bill Simmons of espn.com puts his two cents in and says Cowher or Gruden will be Head Coach here. See? It's settled now.

    Remember months ago when "sources told us" Lebron James was going to sign with the Cavs... or Nets? Or when Stephen A. Smith said "I have a source who has told me it was a done deal from the beginning LeBron would be going to Chicago and I have another source that says it is a done deal he is going to the Knicks."

    Those sources are saying "done deal".... which tends to hold a little more weight than "would excite". LOL

    Could Cowher want to coach here? Could he actually be the next HC? Sure... but I think too many people here are assuming all this is true and that we've got a great chance at it. I don't blame them though, I feel the same way everytime I hear a FA wants to sign here... just to end up signing somewhere else. Most blame Smith/McNair when in realty I don't think we were their #1 landing spot in the first place.

    Sorry at this point we are 0-2 for coordinators -> HC change. Give us a proven winner, someone you can't fault for hiring.

    If someone comes and delivers a championship to this city prepare for the statue to be raised somewhere..
