Today on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington are rooting for DeMeco Ryans in his first head coaching job but they wonder if the Houston Texans job is the right spot for him, right now.

Jonas Knox: "You think DeMeco Ryans is absolutely going to get a long term deal here, and that's what it's gonna take to get him to take the job?"
LaVar Arrington: "After what has just happened, you got to show commitment. You can't lose your fanbase and you can't lose the trust and the buy in. You got to deliver. Honestly, I think it's a really good move for them. I just don't know how good of a move it is for DeMeco. You're getting an opportunity though."
Brady Quinn: "This would be a home run for Houston, but Houston done messed it up so many times. I worry more for him. He's in such a good spot. He's done a tremendous job with San Francisco. They had the number one D this year. They've got a great nucleus coming back and I don't know that you need to rush to go take this job because he's gonna have more opportunities.
He'll be a great head coach and I just don't know if Houston is the right place for him to get started even though he had a successful career there and was drafted there. Maybe there's still some ties that make a lot of sense."
