Dear Mr. NcNair:
It has come to YOUR and OUR attention that the team who plays its home games at Reliant Stadium is a piece of sh (you finish the rest). Sure, you spent billions of dollars on this and wanted to ride this thing out for a little while.

Well take the sausage off the grill, put on the eggs, and put the tortillas in the microwave because the timer of this current administration is up. There needs to be an immediate change. Some heads definitely need to roll. The impact of Charlie Casser-$%&!-Hole’s recent complete idiotic moves will do as much bad to this team as good that came out for the Cowboys in the Herschel Walker deal. If not familiar with that deal, when he last stepped off the field with the Cardinals he was the NFL All Time Leading Rusher. Emmitt Smith. Others to come along were Darren Woodson, Russell Maryland, and Kevin Smith. There were four others as well. Let me make sure I am making my point. The impact that trade had on Dallas winning three super bowls correlates to the negativity caused to the Texans during Casser$%&!Hole’s reign. Peppers-Carson Palmer? Carr-Andre Johnson? An obvious choice. IT goes on, Pitts-Portis? And people want to blame the defense. Well hell, they had some and you took it away from them. . There is no reason why Jamie Sharper and Aaron Glenn should not be Texans right now.

And we all know your team is one of the top 3 most valuable franchises in the NFL. Yet, we cut spending and don’t spend the maximum allotted like most competitive teams. You keep trying to get the Super Bowl to come to Houston, certainly you want Houston to go to the Super Bowl? [And win] Sure you can be a team like the Cardinals in football, Brewers in baseball, but we won’t show up. Wasn’t that a reason Bud left? We just want to see progress and a good competitive team. Sorry Bob, the new franchise tag doesn’t have that “good new smell” anymore.

Honeymoon is over, heads need to roll immediately. We all saw what happened to the Astros last year after the All-Star Break. Bring in new coaches, and a few new players and try to salvage some of this season, you have the cap room, remember, I already told you that one. The town in fed up, there is no reason not to. 14-2 still makes the playoffs last time I checked. You may, and I know some of the players have the attitude that going 12-2 at this point in the season. If that’s the attitude you have, then you don’t belong in the NFL, and you certainly don’t belong on the Houston Texans. The name Houston Texans is based on pride. Pride in your city’s people, evident right now, pride in your city, proud in your state, but most of all proud to be a Houston Texans. You don’t want to be looked at as just another franchise. You want to have that aura about you, that ring. Dallas Cowboys. Los Angeles Lakers. The Ohio State University. You know a team that puts “the” in front of their name means business. I’m sure you can remember watching NFL Films shows a long time ago, hearing about the “Purple People Eaters”, “Monster’s of the Midway”, “Iron Curtain”. What do you want your franchise to be thought of around the league? The Michael Jordan or Michael Bolton?????

I saw two guys get crunk out there, Andre Johnson and Antwan Peek. I also heard Dunta and G. Walk did? G Walk? I look during a timeout and every Texan player on defense has their helmet off, about ¾ of the Steelers had them on. I don’t think Bill Cowher is a pushover. Those two are on my list of players to keep, a short list. I’ll get to that later but let’s get to Chapter 1:

1. GIVE KIPPY A CHANCE! AND GET MIKE IN HERE!
This team needs some attitude!
All teams are going to have their struggles, even the great ones. There will always be adversity to face and you have to make adjustments to overcome it. When the Patriots lose Weiss, Cornell, Bruschi, they have Tom and Bill to pick them back up and get back on track. I don’t think in a lot of ways, the guys in these positions on our team have that respect, from fans definitely not, other players probably not, and teammates maybe not. They can be addressed at the end of the season, but let’s get to what needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY! First, fire Chris Palmer. There, I said, it's nothing innovative, it’s been said probably more than the word “Texans” on this board. I mean, he also just looks like Dave Campo’s http://www.houstontexans.com/team/players/uploadedimages/Palmer_Chris.jpgolder smarter brother. Dave was always outside in the mud catching crickets, playing in the mud, being loud. Chris was inside reading the encyclopedia and staring at the sky blankly a lot. Let receivers coach, Kippy Brown have his chance. Everybody needs their reigns taken off at some point in time. That time is now for Kippy Brown. Make Kippy Brown the Offensive Coordinator. Look at Kippy’s credentials, straight from your team’s website:

Before arriving in Houston, Brown served as head coach of the XFL’s Memphis Maniax. Prior to his stint in Memphis, Brown spent one season with the Green Bay Packers as their running backs coach, helping perennial Pro Bowl back Ahman Green break through with his first 1,000-yard rushing campaign.
Before arriving in Green Bay, Brown spent four seasons with the Miami Dolphins under Jimmy Johnson, the final two seasons as offensive coordinator. Brown arrived in Miami as the running backs coach, helping Karim Abdul-Jabbar become the first Dolphins back to crack the 1,000-yard barrier in 18 years. The following season, Abdul-Jabbar tied for the NFL lead in rushing touchdowns with 15.
Johnson elevated Brown to offensive coordinator in 1998, where he worked with future Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino. The Dolphins earned a wild card berth in both of Brown’s seasons calling the plays.
Brown served one season as the running backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1995. Prior to that, he returned to the University of Tennessee, serving two seasons as the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach. The Volunteers outscored their opponents 847-383 over those two seasons en route to an 18-6 mark. Brown helped tutor future No. 1 draft pick Peyton Manning as a freshman.
Brown’s first NFL coaching stop came in New York, where he spent three seasons (1990-92) as the running backs coach for the Jets. In 1991, the Jets ranked fifth in the league in rushing and advanced to the playoffs for the first time in five seasons.
Brown’s initial stint at Tennessee was as wide receivers coach from 1983-89. He helped develop such prolific Vols receivers as Anthony Miller, Tim McGee, Alvin Harper and Carl Pickens. Prior to arriving in Knoxville, Brown coached wide receivers at Louisville, including future Dolphins standout Mark Clayton.

Everywhere he has gone, he has had success and developed talent. I think we should let him bring in his own plays and his own style and see what he’s got. I prefer opening things up a lot. Three wide 2 back, three wide tight end and back, four wide and a back or tight end, even five wide often. Domanick can line up at receiver too. Keep the defense honest by running draws, screens, using the tight end often up the middle. WITH FOUR OR MORE RECEIVERS AGAINST MAN YOU HAVE TO MIX IN A CROSSING ROUTE PALMER! AND DAVE! That’s another thing, no more of this David bull****. Grow up and be called Dave, David is a kid’s name. Michael Vick went to Mike, grew up, and took his team to the NFC Championship Game, let’s see the same from you. I’m not sure what he prefers but any kind of change is good. Certainly after coaching Dan Marino, Brett Favre, and Peyton Manning, you would think he would like to open up things a bit. Another Kippy has is his versatility in coaching. He has helped develop successful NFL players at every back position on offense.
So, that’s what you do if you want to start turning this thing around. We have seen Palmer’s ****, you give this guy the job on the interim basis and see you want to see what he can do.
And if you do this…let Chick Harris have some input on some running plays to mix things up. He’s another good one!
And let’s get in another quarterback coach for Dave. In his fourth year, Dave is just not necessary progress. He’s not making his reads and seeing the field. And this guy was a defensive player. He’s coaching on the wrong damn side of the ball. Certainly you want someone to be coaching what their familiar with. Makes sense, right? Plus, the guy looks like he just got done eating for three hours at Ci-Ci’s while watching Cartoon Network. http://www.houstontexans.com/team/players/uploadedimages/Roman_Greg.jpg He looks like he might know all the times that Gunsmoke is on in the afternoon. But he’s also got that geek in him and looks like he might collect Star Wars figurines as well.
Let Kippy have the final and only say with everything on offense. Dom doesn't get to touch the offense. He needs to be brainstorming something new for the time being, at least for the season he has left.
Also, get Michael Irvin in here to work with the receivers. Let Kippy concentrate on the x's and o's and technical part of the game and Mike with the technical part and motivational part of the game. Irvin is one of the only guys T.O. and Randy Moss will talk to. He relates with today's receivers and I think can be a great receivers coach. He's making a nice chunk of change at ESPN, but we know you have money to spend in that wallet. If not now, go after him at the end of the season. Think of the media circus at the Texans Bubble and the FIRE AND MOTIVATION HE COULD HELP BRING TO THIS WHOLE TEAM!

More to come…
Including…

If you have extra tickets, walk over to the Reliant Arena and give them to somebody…Like I did today. Who cares if you miss the first 3 minutes…Remember what’s out there.

The scouting and personnel moves of this team are atrocious by the way.
WHY DID WE GET PHILLIP “POISON” BUCHANON? Tell Poison to go back to where he came from.
Oh and there are many, many more. This section could be longer than the Koran.

List of players to keep.
That little salary page comes in handy Charlie and Bob. Lets you see how much money you can spend in trying to IMPROVE YOUR TEAM!

Charlie Casserly is the Cat and Look At The Garbage the Cat Dragged In.
(Would Al Davis let a good 1st round draft pick go?)
Stay - 95 26 75 – committed 34 32 – good special teams and back up 81 44 13 76 84 54 – special teams 7 71 72 56 38.
Bring back Sloan.
Maybe others. There you go, that’s what you keep. Everything else put in a U-Haul truck and send away to another team or the streets.
You have to actually go out and watch these guys and form your own opinion on them, not just go by what everyone else said. Cause guess what, they are lying to you.

Put Dunta on the other team’s BEST RECEIVER!
Amen Matt Jackson…This guy knows what’s up

Find more help for Andre Johnson? Nope, make Johnson the help. If he gets loose, T.O. IT!
This comes from someone who hates the man. But football is a business and that’s why they rank the value of NFL teams. Certainly, bringing T.O. in would increase the national media attention of this franchise. And media attention brings value, see Dallas Cowboys. If T.O. becomes available in the offseason, pursue him.

I WANT ON THE RADIO

MOTIVATION
Can we get some very loud music in the locker room to fire the team up? I recommend some T.I. or Staind

If you can listen to that and not get ready you might not be mean enough to play this game.

FREE AGENTS
1 Year Deal guys who are still looking for a chance and have that fire in them. Young or old, 1-year guys who just want to go out their every play and compete, turn heads, and win football games.

And Finally…If David Carr continues this poor play

Why would you want to draft Leinart? What did he ever do to you? Why ruin another young QB's career?

I'd draft Dr. Michael Baden, forensic pathologist. Someone needs to examine the body of this organization to determine the cause of death.

Matt LionHeart might actually make it in this league all his college ball hasnt been pee-wee calibur like david carrs yall do know he played for fresno state right. lol: look up the WAC conference so yall can see what type of teams he played. and i truely believe Lionheart can make it in this league and i havent been wrong yet.

he did not spend "billions of dollars on this"

the taxpayers gave him a $600 million stadium as a "gift" for procuring the franchise.

that goes into your investment equation with a big fat minus sign on it, slap.

PS don't forget the cash to buy the franchise came from selling cogen technologies to the enron shareholders before enron went belly-up.

if you want to say mcnair has been good to houston, then fine. but understand houston has been good to mcnair. very good. it's time to hold him accountable for the performance of the texans. and it starts with casserly, a guy who has never accomplished anything in the NFL of his own doing.

Exactly! Leinart has played against REAL COLLEGE COMPETITION and DOMINATED. Ask Bob Stoops. Bring over Pete too. Nothing better than to have Pete ease Leinart's transition to the pros. When you watch this guy, you realize how good of a quaterback he is and will be in the pros. He sees the entire field. When his primary receiver is covered he checks down to the next receiver and so on. When there is pressure, HE ACTUALLY GETS OUT OF THE POCKET and makes something happen. Throws a great ball too. Very accurate. Remember that first td pass to the tight end against OU? How'd he do that.

BRADY LIKE!!

GET HIM!!

Thanks geek. Where do you sell calculators at? Office Max or Depot? Nah, you probably wheel and deal out of a specialty calculator store. Something like Lucky's Calculators.

My point was the dude spent a chunk of change on the team, might as well invest in your investment.

I agree, lets get Pete and his staff in here starting next year. And before all of you jump on me about his 1st NFL stint, let me remind you that the Pats coach and stop in Cleveland wasn't all that and a bag of chips either. I think he was fired and replaced by none other than Chris Palmer. Pete may just need a better fit just like Billicik or however you spell his name, the coach who has won 3 of the last 4 superbowls with the Pats.

Get your hands off the panic button!

Instead of getting rid of Carr, lets see what he can do with an O Line and some talent. We've seen what Carr is can do so why not help him out? Reggie Wanye is a FA who should be released because of salary cap reasons so why not get a good number 2 WR, and a LT who isnt a stopgap? I agree, we need to quit being cheap and start being more active in FA, but Carr isn't as big of a problem as people make him out to be. When our point total and sack allowed are the exact same thing, then you have a different problem.

I disagree. If you watch Carr, he is just not seeing the entire field. He doesn't check off his primary receiver and see the open man. There were plenty of times yesterday where I saw Carr run out of bounds when if he would have looked away from Andre Johnson he would have seen Murphy open. There were also times when another receiver or a running back was open as well. It's just inexusable not to have your reads down in your 4th year as a pro. This is a guy who has played about 95% of the Texans franshise snaps too. So experience isn't an issue. He just hasn't made the progress so far, and there's no reason to believe he'll start.

I dunno....what's riskier, drafting QBs or LTs ? If we get a really high pick,
lets trade back and get max volume of lower picks and not try to go for a
single player. This upcoming draft is suppose to be loaded I think ?
And if we want to get another QB (not Carr, Banks, or Ragone), lets get a
vet FA like Arizona, Dallas and others did.

Why is Carr allways running? Is there any other viable WR other than Johnson? Carr scrambles because he has to. If he could get more than 2 seconds to throw I'm sure he could do good. We saw glimpses of greatness last year, so what so different? O LINE! I'm telling you now, if Carr had weapons or at least blocking, he could do well.

OK, just so I have this straight...

You think the fact that Carr goes by the name David instead of Dave has any relevance whatsoever to our offensive problems, but you think that Kippy is the answer to them...?

Despite the fact that Kippy is one of the silliest names in the history of grown men's names, he seems to be quite the stud in your view.

Now, I'm not saying your wrong about 'ol Kippy, but this seems like a new high in double standards... :cool:

It has to do with getting some attitude on this team and getting fired up to play football and win some games. I don't see any of either of the Bill's players not ready to play. This team needs some attitude and they need someone to get them motivated to play. Seems like a lot of players going through the motion. Using the name Dave instead of David makes a statement to the rest of the league and fans that, "I (Carr) mean business." Michael Vick changed to Mike, looks like he is doing okay. It's just perception. Obviously, going by a different name isn't going to win games, but it's going to change attitudes. This team needs an attitude change and that starts with the head coach. Dom Capers is as bland of a coach as I have ever seen. It is evident that losing team leaders Sharper and Glenn has resulted in a loss of motivation for this football team. Someone needs to get these guys fired up to play football.

In response to the dude earlier:
Carr can't make his reads. When he scrambles, people are open, he just can't see them. If the O-Line can't block, why not have some 4 or 5 wide sets with quick passes? Counter that with draws and pump fakes to keep the defense honest. When was the last time Dave pump faked? And don't give me that "he doesn't have time ****."
