After next season… Kingsbury ascends to HC, with Miles as DC and Lovie as the special advisor role that was previously held by Romeo Crennell. After today? No, it’s a clean slate. Lovie was getting this consideration due to the improved play in the last three weeks - today was a regression to the Texans we know in the current era. Yeah at this point I'm fine with Lovie being let go and moving forward with a new coach and QB... but I'm not sure that is what Houston will do after next weeks game. A results driven league and we haven't been good enough for the HC to keep his job. I'd rather bring someone new in. As far as Kingsbury I don't want him anywhere near this team. Or McCown really tbh.. but I think it is feasible that they try to keep Lovie while bringing in McCown. Kingsbury hasn't done that well in Arizona and I wouldn't like to see him as the guy leading our franchise. If Lovie is retained its easy to speculate that Miles Smith could step up as DC because he is Lovie's son, but there is no reason to believe that would improve the defense at all. The LB's haven't performed that well this season and he's played them all trying to make it work. Nothing on his resume would make you think he could do any better and if they were considering promoting Miles I'd much rather Lovie to continue to run the defense honestly (and nobody wants that lol). If they want to promote from within the defensive coaches on staff the only person is probably the CB coach Dino Vasso. He at least has experience outside of Lovie system and has been an assistant DC before in Philly. He came over to Houston when Sirianni new staff was brought to Philly. The defense while Vasso was there was at least solid. That move wouldn't wow anyone and I doubt Lovie wants to give that DC role to anyone unless he has to. But the idea that promoting Miles Smith will somehow improve things is ridiculous to me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
