  1. "I can't see the field! It must be all the blood in my eyes. Did you see the blood and how hurt I was?"
  2. Yeah they keep using that footage like he's playing with an eye hanging out of his socket or something. Wuss. And he threw a pick, lol!
  3. For all the talk about, "you can't win in this league without a franchise QB," today proved that a QB will get you to the playoffs, but a defense gets you a championship. Looking at Kyler's implosion last week, and today all QBs accounted 1 Passing Touchdown, 5 Interceptions, and 19 sacks. The defenses dictated the outcomes of the games today.
  4. No. Let's roll with the scrub we have rather than starting over with another scrub. FIX THE LINE Then you have permission to spend money on anything else.
  5. Fine. Honestly it's fine. Of all the candidates available, Ben McAdoo was definitely one of them. The real test will be obtaining the quality pieces on the offensive side of the ball, particularly on the line. What we have right now, no one can step into the OC role and succeed. If we get them, I have no reason to think McAdoo can't be successful.
  6. Okay, I'm mainly just stubbornly playing devil's advocate at this point: but there's a non-zero probability that one of those players speaking out was OBJ.
  7. This is genuinely fascinating. The guy is not a fan of the guy the fanbase is not a fan of. And correctly judges offensive talent. But the fanbase still finds a way to make a negative out of it.
  8. Yeah, pretty much this. Any other OC would probably need to come with a complete regime change. But IF we're saddled with Rhule, and IF we've got no other choice but hope for the current regime to turn things around, I don't hate McAdoo for the job.
  9. Yes, but there's precedent for flameout head coaches still being very successful as coordinators. Steve Spagnuolo comes to mind. And good or bad, I thing any NFL HC experience would be valuable on the Rhule coaching roster. Not saying McAdoo is at the top of my list, but I don't see anything here to merit the kneejerk dismissiveness the board is treating this news with.
  10. Yeah, I'd be concerned if we were interviewing him for our HC. We're looking for an offensive play caller. Not a rah rah guy.
  11. Not to get political, but my goodness. I want this thread to be exhibit A the next time I ever hear someone say that women are to emotional and irrational to be president. Here's a candidate that checks all the boxes. We said Rhule needs a coordinator with NFL HC experience. He's got that. We want someone who's been successful as an OC. He's got that. And still we get 10 pages of how he's the wrong kind of right for this position! Everyone is just looking for another reason to be upset.
  12. You have to do something pretty spectacular to coach your way to unemployment in the playoffs. I think he might have just achieved it.
  13. He's a fine backup MLB. He's a great situational, spell, package MLB. He's just utterly outclassed when asked to be an every down linebacker. I hope we retain him, but he cannot be our starting MLB.
  14. I'm strangely okay with it. Not super enthused about Rhule's third year, but I'm REALLY not up for another regime change. Maybe Rhule can learn from his mistakes. Maybe he can grow. Maybe we expect too much instant gratification to let a leader develop. It took Rhule one year to create the league's second best defense. Our offense was hindered by a garbage line and our franchise RB being injured AGAIN. If we invest in quality protection, maybe we can see a similar turnaround on the offense. Maybe not. But considering it looks like a done deal, and I personally have no control over it, given the choice between holding out hope, and endlessly spamming clown gifs, I'll go with the former.
  15. This. This firing just means Watson ain't coming back to Houston. Doubtful he comes back to the league.
