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.
