    In his one season as DC they ranked 32 in scoring defense

    And his offense turned the ball over 28 times. The Denver defense wasn't bad this year but they gave up a lot of points because their offense turned the ball over a lot. Any defense is going to give up points if their offense repeatedly puts them in bad positions. Not saying Vrabel had a great year, but last in points had a lot to do with how bad the Houston offense was.

    I actually don't give a damn about his Texans defense.

    I don't think it has anything at all to do with what kinda HC he'll be for us

    I feel we've got a long-term coach on our hands

    I see people trying to sugarcoat this hire and think of the positives, but let's be honest. No one actually loves this. It's clear far and away the biggest problem this season was this offense and Mariota's awful mechanics. We desperately need an offensive guy who can bring some creativity and help Mariota become the great QB his raw talent demands.

    Instead we get a guy who'd been a coordinator for one year because he comes from the Pats and is buddy buddy with Jrob. In that one year as a coordinator, his defense ranked last in the NFL in points allowed (I know he dealt with injuries, but still). I see people saying "Oh, let's wait to see what OC he hires." What solid and proven guy would come here as an OC when he could probably get a HC job? Heck, even the best QB coach (Defilippo) might end up getting the Cardinals job.

    I give credit more than anyone to Jrob for this rebuild the last couple years, but I'm disappointed in him. I really hope I'm proven wrong, but I see more of the same next year with this team.

    Luke warm on it as well - it is what it is.

    Can see this anything from a 6-10 up-coming season to Vrabel surprising some critics - could see it go either way.

    There’s not enough info on him to definitely say this will be a total bust or be the best thing for the organization.

    Flip a coin

    The fact he doesn’t think Terry robiskie is OC material makes him waaaay better
    The fact he doesn’t have some exotic smashmouth offense makes him way better

    Go back to page 20, where the Hammer quoted my post. It answers your response.

    I don't like repeating myself.
