A great read from Bucky Brooks at NFL.com about how Wade Phillips transformed the Houston defense.

If they were unable to get to the QB utilizing a speed or bull rush technique, the edge players would slip inside of the offensive tackle and meet the quarterback as he stepped up into the pocket.”
The Houston Texans acquired Matt Schaub to get them to the postseason. Last season they finally got there, but Schaub was on the sideline for the playoff run with a Lisfranc injury.
