    Would have been a good pick for our DC if we lose Ron Rivera.

    It sure didn't look like they were running any scheme at all most of the year.

    Houston is going to have a dominate Defense now with Wade at the helm of it. I also think possibly a Playoff Berth for the Texans as well this year.

    He still needs a few more decent players. But yeah they will be better that this season.

    Well they were among many of the recent converts. Reading through there I see they failed at the 3-4 and shifted back this year. I see this hire as a tell that they are gonna get serious with their 3-4 convert project. Great idea considering how much trouble PM has against a good disguised blizt package.

    15 now i beleve are running, or claim/try to run a 3-4 defense.

    Once a Texan... of course I would imagine he grew up there when Bum was coaching the Oilers so reckon he's home and happy.

    Will be interesting to see how Mario gets on as a 3-4 DE. I doubt he is thrilled with this.

    If Rivera goes I'd like to see us bring Manusky back from SF as DC. (assuming he does not get a HC somewhere, apparently he is being talked about)

    Good luck to Wade! I hope he can turn that defense around to respectability. A better defense and I see a texans division championship.
