    I wish Wade wasn't fired and just demoted to DC.

    I guess I could point out here what happened for Sean Peyton shortly after he left the Cowboys. :D

    I'm not very smart in that area, so it's probably not.

    Wade is one of those guys who is a great DC, but unable to move the whole team as a HC. I wish we had snagged him when you guys let him go.

    Even Wade has some pride; he would not have taken the DC spot after being fired as HC.

    Frankly, I always thought he was a VERY GOOD DC, but not a great one.

    Wade is a perfect fit on the Texans. I am sure he enjoying life a lot more now that he isn't under a ridiculous media microscope. Winning probably doesn't hurt either.

    He's always been a great DC. It's no surprise he's doing well in Houston.

    You can't demote a guy to DC and NO ONE wanted too anyway. That defense was TERRIBLE that year. He deserved to get fired.

    Wasn't his fault the defense has no talent on defense outside of Ware and Jenkins.

    That team quit on Wade.

    Whether it was his fault or not a change had to be made. His way wasn't working for this team

    And he seemed clueless as to fixing it.

    He's better off now. And already talking about wanting another HC job. I saw that on ESPN.

    Oh really? He had just as much talent in Dallas as he had in Houston. No one was screaming we weren't talented at that time. Its easy to say now. Not to mention he has Alan Ball and Bradie James playing for him now in Houston. The only difference between the Texans defense and our defense is that he's currently in year 2 and our defense was in I believe its 4th or 5th year under Wade. Its only a matter of time before players stop responding to his coaching style and start fading off just like the Cowboys defense did. It wasn't so much the job that Wade was doing but more so the lack of response players hard towards him. His job was on the line and guys still stunk it up out there.

    And he'll probably get one and do very well those 1st few seasons. But his coaching style is just not built for grown men who are millionaires.

    The 2011-2012 Texans front seven is light years better than anything we have put on the field in the last 6-7 years. They can dominate at the line of scrimmage, stop the run and they aren't dependent on one player to pressure opposing QB's. The Texans also have an execellent cover corner in Jonathan Joseph, and Daniel Manning is better than anyone we have had at safety since Darren Woodson.

    I have no idea where you're getting this; there were numerous people, here and elsewhere, pointing out at the time that we had a "nothing special" front seven.

    Ball hardly plays. James' limitations will be more of an issue now that Cushing isn't there; something to keep an eye on.

    Wade simply has a better group of defensive players in Houston than we ever had in Dallas. Anyone who argues otherwise is wrong.
