    Some might not think this is thread worthy, but I always liked this dude for some reason. He wasn't the best, but he worked harder than any player I've seen at TC. Plus, dude's built like a dadgum stump.

    These kinds of players actually make some of the best coaches.

    Can't go wrong with a hard working intelligent coach who played and is personable.

    He's carrying a lot of baggage back to the Texans.............GOOD baggage! A Sun Sentinel piece written back in 2004......nothing changed when he joined the Texans the first time.......no reason to think it has since then.

    I liked him as a player. Not a star by any means, but a role player. Got to have role players.

    Always nice to have blue collar guys on staff and on the sidelines. As for the question on Marciano....even someone on Jeopardy couldn't answer that question lol.

    If he can instill the same work ethic he had.... what am I talking about, he's coaching Jj Watt & Antonio Smith.

    But I do like the hire.

    Why wouldn't you want a J.J. Watt clone in Margus Hunt out of SMU? That's who I hope we land with our first-round pick, trading up if necessary.

    Good hire. He's been around for many years and should be able to teach our guys some moves, work ethic, etc. from his experience.
