Re: What's your take on our coaching?

I think Kyle gets way too much credit for the Texans offense. My understanding is that it is Gary Kubiak's offense and KS was just a playcaller.

I don't remember there being too much anguish on Texans message boards when he came here, in fact quite a few posters were glad to see the back of him.

They have a lot of guys I'd take over ours, at least on offense. Jackson is the real deal and while no superstar Fitz is a 2nd tier type of QB who fits well in what they do. They have a bunch of no-names at WR, but they get the job done.

They have a lot of no names, including Chad Rinehart.

Re: What's your take on our coaching?

I thought it was 3 to 4 weeks ago this was a team going to the SB? lol. Not really but you know what I mean. The OL is decimated. In one game our OL went to hell and a hand basket. I still feel the OL was targeted purposefully because thats what was holding the glue together. With out a decent OL you see what we have. All the other NFCE teams have had their share of OL problems but us up until the Eagles game.

I can't prove it. but I can say I still feel like Andy Reid purposefully had our OL targeted in order to benifit his outcome of the game.

Beyond that, our QB's are not top tier talented QB's. They are #2's at best. Backups. But as some others have said the offseason target was defense. Just look at it... DE/LB in the 1st round, NT in the 2nd round. Hopefully this next offseason the team focuses on QB, OL, CB, and WR. Preferably a QB in round 1.

Well the Eagles cheap shotted Kory L. so you are correct there.

Yeah but did Reid put them up to that?

I seriously doubt it.

LMAO! Cheapshoting this team would be a waste of time and effort. It really looks like other teams have to go out of their way kick the skins ass.

Re: What's your take on our coaching?

I don't hate Kyle for his last name. I just think he has done poorly in leading the offense.

We don't have a real QB. Kyle should have known this months ago. Yet Kyle insists on having our QB's win our games. He puts the offense on the shoulders of our QB's, not on the running game. And with Rex and Beck that is not sensible.

What we could be doing is reverting to old-school football: reliance on a solid running game and a solid defense to keep us in games. Would we win the Super Bowl this way? Probably not, not without a passing attack. But we would win a bunch of games and be a better team than we are now.

A lack of a real QB is an excuse for Kyle that only goes so far. A good coordinator finds a way to adapt and Kyle does not seem to do this well.

Re: What's your take on our coaching?

Problem is we can't run the ball effectively right now either. The injuries on the OL have really hurt.

It's hard to run the ball with only one running play. The defense already knows what we're going to run. If that one play isn't working then time to put in some more run plays. Time to put Banks in the wildcat. Buffalo did it so why can't we? Kyle has no idea how to diversify his offense.

With the state of our o-line right now, Banks would get killed running the wildcat. I don't fault anyone for not running the ball now, but we didn't run the ball when the o-line was healthy.

Not buying it. So tired of the injury excuse. One run play isn't what I call a good game plan. How about forcing a below average defense have to prepare for more run plays?

Beck hasn't played bad in games up until yesterday. That said, do you think Hasselbeck (or even Tom Brady) would have fared any better yesterday from the play of our OL/WR?


No run block or pass blocking at all from that group yesterday.

Re: What's your take on our coaching?

Sorry, but if we let Mike Shanahan go we're just setting ourselves up for more years of mediocrity. Kyle Shanahan on the other hand...

I don't think we have to get rid of Kyle S., but he does need to diversify up his offense and learn to attack opponents' weaknesses better. He just wants to pass all day, and even the best passing offenses know how valuable running the ball is. I hope we have the players next year that fit what Kyle S. wants to do, because right now it looks like injuries are really going to limit our effectiveness on offense for the rest of the year.
