    Didn't the Eagles just make their Oline coach defensive coordinator?

    Yes, and our OC was a linebacker before he changed sides to coach offense.

    I was very disappointed to see that Ryan did not play TE.

    By the time a coach reaches the NFL level he should know enough about all the positions to be an assistant.

    You could also say that by the time an NFL coach reaches HC position, he should know enough about all the positions..........on both sides of the ball.:kubepalm:

    this is depressing, like the organization has put the bus in reverse, downhill, on a slippery slope with no end insight :hankpalm:

    What's the chance either one of these guys has the same impact Bruce Matthews was having?

    Texans went from 30th in rushing to 7th in one year & undrafted RB Arian Foster won the league individual rushing title sending himself along with FB Vonta Leach to the Pro Bowl.

    All thanks to Bruce Matthews, who also happened to be here in 2009.

    I am afraid of becoming as astros type of fan if Texans don't pull off a good off season.

    best case scenero is immediate impact but I'll take a one year turnaround. Also I thought Wade Smith turned out to be a great free agent pick-up, he flew under the radar without a lot of pub or fanfare, he certainly deserves recognition & Pro-Bowl invite as well.

    ...and all the credit goes to a offensive assistant? Not the Oline coach, not the new OC who also has had great success coaching Olines, not the great pick up of Wade Smith, or finally getting RBs who fit this system. I think people are severely overblowing what Matthews' impact was here.

    Matthews gave the Texans something they where severely lacking, Credibility. From an offensive line viewpoint, given the talent available, for the 1st time EVER in franchise history, Texans got the BL stamp of approval & yes I believe Bruce was an extra big part of that.

    One thing for sure is as the Texans rose in rushing productivity Tennessee fell so is that just purely coincidental? discount Matthews impact if you will then come back here next off season & show me what you got :smooch:

    There's a certain amount of shrewdness to picking a linebacker's coach to be the offensive assistant. Part of being an offensive coach is understanding blitzes; who better to understand blitzes then a LB coach?

    I'm not saying its a great pick. I'm just trying to understand it outside of the friends relationship.

    Still not buying it. As far as the running game goes and offensive line in general...the Texans already had credibility, they brought that over from Denver. Players were already sold on the zone scheme.

    If Bruce Matthews wasn't a local legend nobody would care one way or another. He was just a assistant and he wasn't the main cog behind this team's success on the ground. There were MANY people and players that played a big role in that and they're all still here.

    Why am I not excited about the asst coach hires.

    Phillips-Hired as a PR move to get angry fans off BoB's back for keeping Gary.
    Joseph-Bad secondary in San Fran
    Herring- LB's are alot of what's wrong with Dallas defense
    Ryan- FOG
    Butler- No nothing about him. But he's supposed to help Marciano? LOL
