    All the talk about Bill O'Brien and I really felt it was Romeo Crennell that's most responsible for getting us to the playoffs. Bill O'Brien, offensive genius, has a god awful offense and Crennell has put together one of the better defenses in the league largely without JJ Watt. Not close in my opinion.

    Definitely a combination of Romeo and the organization acquiring players via draft and after thoughts. Merciless has turned into what rockstar wade had in mind for him. Jungle boy swag didn't pan out with the second rd selection but "you're my bouye" turned out be one of the best corners in that draft.

    none of romeo's mastery is possible without Clowney.

    The fact that we play in the AFC South. We're 4-6 against the rest of the league.

    Yeah, you know, winning season, winning the division, winning a playoff game. Most people consider that success....you know, because it is.

    Combo of RAC + everyone associated with the defense and I hate to say it, Rick Smith.

    There are a plethora of guys that I assume Rick and the scouts had a hand in drafting/signing that have made impacts -- Bouye, Covington, Reader, Clowney, Mercilus, Mckinney, Simon, and some serviceable safeties.
