The only issue about having an offense that knows how to move the football is that other teams will be looking to steal our coaches from us. The Houston Texans fired Gary Kubiak earlier in the season and are in the hunt for a veteran head coach in order to turn things around for them. Lovie Smith is at the top of the list for the Texans and the people over at Bovada have put odds on other possible head coaches.

Here are the odds for the other candidates:

Lovie Smith                   5/2Art Briles                       11/4Ken Whisenhunt            4/1David Shaw                  5/1Kevin Sumlin                 5/1Wade Philips                 15/2John Gruden                 15/1Bill Cowher                    15/1

I like what Ken Whisenhunt has done with the offense this season. There are some questions I have had with some decisions down in the red zone, but I think the team continues to grow on offense. Philip Rivers is having an excellent year and Ryan Mathews has stepped up huge as well. I would love to have Whiz back for another season, but when the opportunity for a head coaching job comes up, he has to jump at it.
