Going back to playoff Lenny instead of bringing in a capable RB and not having more depth on the OL are the reasons I think Leftwich is taking the fall for this year.
Yeah, I would like to Leftwich in a different situation. There's still a few jobs OC jobs open, so I hope he gets a second job.

But, this does make me think that if you have a shot at a HC job as a "hot" candidate, you almost have to take it. I think it was that Leftwich didn't want to be attached to Baalke, but this shows how fast a window can close. But, I do understand wanting to go to a good situation. Where, I wouldn't want that Houston job. How can anybody feel they have time to develop a team with two consecutive one and done HCs, even though it was known that they were stopgap hires. The main attraction is that they have the #2 pick and a good amount of draft picks. But who's to say that the Colts or another team trades in front of them to take the Texans preferred QB
