I agree with your quote Nate---he might have Bullock try a 57 yard FG with 1 second left on the clock--and we know how that will turn out.

4. Non-NFL Player

With that said, who are the prospects?

Maybe Lovie Smith, Mike Zimmer, Nick Sabin, Brian Billick, Tony Dungy, Wade Phillips
3. Defensive minded--I never heard that
4. Non-NFL Player --No, he said the coach cannot be overly influenced by the player mentality.

Default McNair wants an HC who is

...ethical and bright.

Who would that eliminate among current NFL HC's?


BTW---I can see Jerry Jones coach requirements--obedient and controllable.

Rex Ryan would be one I think.

Nick Saban? Just saying...
Bevell and Shaw are the top of my list.

Someone that doesn't fit the requirements that I like, Mark Dantonio HC Michigan State or his DC Pat Narduzzi. The #1 rated defense even with less talent given that Michigan State doesn't get the kind of recruiting that Alabama or teams in the SEC get. Outside of this year.

Todd Grantham DC Georgia would also be on a lot of teams radars but might not now because of this year's unsuccessful defensive performance. (A lot of freshman on that defense)
Don't leave out the Michigan State trainer Nate. haha

It's my hope that the Texans pick up either David Shaw or Bill Cowher as the new head coach. Either would be a vast improvement and could possibly bring in a Super Bowl. Lovey Smith would be a great one as well.

Default What are your thoughts on Jim Caldwell as a Head Coach fo the Texans?

What are you thoughts about Jim Caldwell being Head Coach of the Texans? He was Offensive Coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens when they won the Super Bowl and also the Indianapolis Colts. Both Teams have out edged us in post season play and gone to the Super Bowl. The South Division Leader is the Indianapolis Colts. Redemption is sweet. He would do everything possible to defeat Indy and show that they made a mistake when they let him go. I feel he would be an excellent coach for the Houston Texans. Although the Titans and Jaguars are rebuilding, it would give our Team an edge next season when playing Indy. I want the Texans to win a Super Bowl as well. Something that the Oilers were never able to do when they were in Houston.

Texans- a new direction that will put the Texans back on top!

I've been talking about Darrell Bevell for about 6 weeks now and will continue to be a fan. He is deserving and has put in his time as an OC for Minn and Sea. He has a great offensive mind and just makes more since to me than any other NFL coach. Shaw would be the only college coach that I would want if McNair leaned that direction...
