To a top tier unit this season? What did they do right, that obviously the panthers are doing wrong? Wish we could make that sort of turn around....

mostly a mixture of good coaching and luck in the draft.

just like a lot of teams.

It also took them years of building.

the offense is built around the run game, and they have a good defense...

...aka foxball.

When you hire coaches who are actually good at what the do, you attain success?

What strange sorcery is this.

Remember that it took Kubiak 6 years to make the playoffs. I'm not defending the current staff or wanting that but how many people here would be happy to wait that long?

JJ Watt is a fugging beast, disrupts every phase of the opponents offense. That will do wonders for your secondary, and Schaub and the offense run a great balance of run and pass.

Thing is, we don't have to wait that long. We are literally 2 plays from the huddle not imploding..and the Panthers being 3-2. (Cam fumble in ATL game), (4th and 1 at the goal line boot out, last week). It just seems we can't finish. No one is hardly doing their job in Carolina, and that goes to the coaches..as well as the players.

there were a lot of ups and downs between the end of the carr era and now for the texans.

it wasn't like they picked up schaub and were immediately in the playoffs. they certainly looked better than they did during the carr years but they still had a quarterback carousel going for a few seasons due to injuries and it took time to get their defense built up to what it is now.

from 2007 through 2010 they only had one winning season and that was at 9-7 and out of the playoffs.

The Texans are a team I like to compare us to cuz I'm a huge fan of Andre Johnson and they were stuck in mediocrity for a while until recently

2006 - 6-10
2007 - 8-8
2008 - 8-8
2009 - 9-7
2010 - 6-10
2011 - 10-6

Hiring Wade Phillips as DC and supplementing him with good FA signings and draft helped

The Texans strategy wasn't difficult. They just waited until Peyton died. I guess we will have to wait for Brees and Ryan to die until we can compete in our division.

That is sort of my point. While it is natural for fans to start thinking ahead it serves no purpose to worry about replacing a coach after the 5th game of the year. What if they get their act together and improve on last season?

They got to where they are by not bricking on 9 out of every 10 draft picks the past 6 years. They draft guys that are able to contribute at the nfl level, some even become elite. We draft guys that are out of the league in a few seasons.

Exactly. They traded away Mario Williams and are still one of the best teams in the league.

They have a GREAT defensive coordinator with with some elite pieces in their front seven. They have a decent defensive backfield which doesn't have to cover as long due to their front. Offensively, they have a dual threat every down running back, who could be the league MVP when all is said and done. They have a great quarterback with one of the top five wide receivers in the game, and an underrated TE. Their line is strong in both run blocking and pass protection. Their F.O. has hit a ton of home runs in the draft, and they haven't been forced to overpay to keep players because they can't replace them in the draft....
