The sole goal of the NFL regular season is to make the playoffs. That’s it. Everything else is moral victories, adjustments made based on where the franchise is in their competitive life cycle. For the Houston Texans, making the NFL Playoffs after an 0-4 start would be a near impossibility; only one team has ever pulled it off.
Because of that, this season is all about enjoying every week and having our football team back again. It’s poolside sitting. The end result of who wins and loses doesn’t really matter anymore. Having a good time while trying not to get sunburned is the only thing that does.
That being said, who the next head coach of the Houston Texans will be is going to be the dominant story line this season for a franchise without their first and second round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft. Games played by other teams will be watched as we look for offensive designs perfect for Deshaun Watson and defensive coaches who show the leadership needed for a culture to be built (LOL).
Personally, there are three candidates I really like. Eric Bieniemy the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, is my number one choice. I saw him first and discussed what I thought he could do for the Texans on episodes of Battle Red Radio going back to last year. Greg Roman, who has built great offenses around mobile quarterbacks going back to his time in San Francisco last decade, built a top ten offense by DVOA around Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, and transformed Lamar Jackson into a MVP winner is a solid back-up plan for Bieniemy. Finally, Brian Daboll, who has added layers to Buffalo’s offense along with Josh Allen’s maturity, has been integral to getting the Bills off a 4-0 start.
These are my three top choices. I’d also listen to the Arthur Smith chatter; Smith understands play action is good, what not to do, and he has coached for multiple head coaches, learning different offensive styles from each one.
This afternoon, I ask you one simple question: Who is your preferred candidate to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans?
Who’s your favorite candidate to become the next head coach of the Texans?
