Sorry for being lazy and not posting article. Doing from phone.
If we hire Smith, it will free up my Sundays for quite some time.
Texans wont be fit to watch ...
Initially I wasn't thrilled about this but after digging into his past and reading up on him I think we can certainly do worse.
Still not my first choice...
Never really heard of this consultant. He never made it in the coaching ranks beyond positional coaching, but has somehow managed to become the head of this supposedly respected "sports search" entity.
Supposedly in another thread, Mike Shanahan is considered if he is fired in Washington. I'd rather take Lovie between the two.
I will be pretty upset if shanny comes to Houston. I think the game has passed his style of offense up (I.e. Kubiak's style as well).
Yeah watching a team coached by a guy that took a team to a SB and deep into the playoffs would just be way to difficult. Join the Cowboys then or follow Kubes wherever he goes.
Lovie meets the Rooney Rule requirement, at worst. I just think there will be higher profile candidates. I will be watching with keen interest when the CBS pregame show discusses the opening.
Also has ties with Pittsburgh......hmmmm.......
If the Texans hire Lovie Smith, pretty much assures that Wade Phillips will be gone.... that's a good thing in my mind
Ya know, as long as he brings Kyle along..that might work. Shanahan still has fire...by the way he turns red and the veins in his neck swell up, he still has it, and his son can always take the reins after Mike's had enough of it all.
Another name to keep an eye on: Rapoport was told that Kevin Sumlin will receive attention from Houston brass. The Texas A&M coach recently agreed to a six-year deal with the Aggies, but he hasn't officially signed it.
That's kinda interesting. Sounds like no more Mr Nice guy from McNair.
I like Lovie Smith a lot more than I like the Chin or Chucky. Those two will bring a three ring affair with them.
Uh... if we're thinking about our next coaches' future replacement before we even hire him... we're barking up the wrong tree.
I would hope - and I believe - Wade is gone regardless, but I understand what you're saying. We need as fresh a start as we can get.
Hope this wrong. Shows McNair is a bigger dumbass than I thought.
Why all the love for Sumlin? The guy is the college level Gruden, taking over a built up roster from Briles and then just putting it on cruise control. Everything he learned he learned from Briles, I'd rather just go for the tree than a fruit off of it.
I want nothing to do with Sumlin. Not saying he's a bad coach just saying he hasn't mastered the college level yet. He's tasted minimal success with a phenomenal QB. It will be telling what he does next season with JF.
God I hope not. NO TO LOVE SMITH!! We need s young up and coming coach. I do much about David Shaw, but I hear he could be the next great young coach.
Sumlin's contract has been signed, happened the day after the mizzou game. Just hasn't been ratified by the board of regents.
I think Rappaport and Mr. Hand are just flinging monkey poo to see what sticks.
Separate names with a comma.
