Great - first thing he does is confuse symptom with problem.

HELLOOOOOOOOOOO Capers---Earth to Capers,
you have no defense, and your Offensive Line can't block for Carr. :homer:

Capers is only going to state the same thing he's been saying for 3.25 years, we just have to work on our technique and fix our problems. So long as we are in a game in the 4th quarter, what more could you ask for?? (Something that resembles an entertaining football game? What blasphemy).

Zero consideration to benching Carr so folks might as well quit with that for a while.

He did point out that while we were 0-13 on 3rd down we did convert by penalty once and converted on a 4th down.

Show would be interesting only if there were calls like the posts here. I think that organiztion really needs answer directly to the fans for a poor product. Then again Mavk V. nipped that in the bud before the show started with something along the lines of football calls only not a gripe session.

He likes what they did on first and second down but not what they did on third down. If you do well on first and second down, shouldn't a first down be that much easier to pick up on third? Maybe his next gameplan will include taking any third down out and going directly to fourth.

He doesn't worry about getting fired, and neither should the players, if they always do the best they can.

Caller calls Caper hard worker and brilliant. Wants team to take on that character.

Follows up with clock mgt question at end of half.


Capers worries about giving ball back in good field position. Capers said maybe we should have let the clock run down.

We need a follow up question - why not use your time outs and attack?

For the 200th time Capers says Armstrong has the best hands on the team. Of course the brilliant thing to do then is to have him in the game for "a handful of plays." Nice.

He doesnt have to do the show but I'm pretty sure Mr. McNair strongly suggests that he does. The Texans get VERY little airtime. They need all the exposure they can get. I'm always happy when I hear Texan talk on the radio but I'm not going to bow down and kiss Capers feet for gracing me with a few minutes of his time.

10-10-2005, 05:04 PM
I agree , I have jumped on the Fire Capers bandwagon, I felt bad for Dom. He doesn't have to do the show. It's cool he has been a good sport and done the show for the 4 weeks. I really like Dom, just think we need to go in a new direction.

True. Capers does seem like a good guy, but as far as head coach of our team, it's just not working. I did a lol about the fan that called and asked that question, but that was messed up.

He did point out that while we were 0-13 on 3rd down we did convert by penalty once and converted on a 4th down.

He also said that he was unaware that they hadn't converted a third down until after the game. Now if Jeff Fisher is aware of some obscure free kick rule don't you think our coach should be aware of how he's doing on third down conversions as they occur?

Like many of you I really like the guy and truly want him to succeed, but...

I admire Capers. He is a man that deserves great respect. He treats people with respect and is a man of honor and integrity.

Unfortunately, he needs to be fired. He has lost the ability to be successful here. Also, it's quite apparent that the collaberation between Casserly and Capers is an utter failure.

What's your guys take on this?

Coaching Change

Okay Bob McNair, what do you do? You know something is amiss right now.

#1-------Do you try to make it through this year hoping for the best? A
complete turn-a-round!
#2-------Do you fire Casserly the GM?
#3-------Do you fire Capers?
#4-------Do you fire both Casserly and Capers?
#5-------Do you wait till mid-season before making a change?

I say #3 you fire Capers now! Why wait to the end of the season or even mid season. It's quite obvious, you have no defense, you have no offensive line that can block. I say hire Gary Kubiak NOW. He can start his program right now(not a totally revamped offense) but something. Okay, you wait until the end of the year, hire Gary Kubiak, you have wasted this year, now you are going into the next 2006 season for some rebuilding. Why waste any more time? Four years is down the drain, get Gary now!!!! Let him start NOW trying to put the wheels back on this team.

I say #3 you fire Capers now!So who is going to be the interim HC if you fire Capers now? Pendry? Wow! From coaching the o-line to HC! Fangio? No turnovers and on pace for 16 sacks. No thanks. Don't even try Hoke or Brown leapfrogging to the top. How would any of them be an improvement? Our best "interim" HC was fired before the BYE week. Capers should finish the year and be released @ 7pm Jan 1st.

CC and his staff are bucolic in the way they are handling this situation. This isn't some pastoral scene with little sheep bounding around - this is American Football, and it has to be treated like American Football. You have to be strong and dominant. Capers is showing no such effort - not on the field, and not in his interviews.

wait till the end of the season. The only excuse for firing capers now is to appease bloodthirsty fans. no good would come of it.

I didnt hear the show but judging by this thread it sounds like it was interesting.

I like Capers.. I dont know why I should have to say that though.. who doesnt like Capers? Yah I want to replace him.. but I dont want to pee in his gas tank or anything. All he is done is the best he could.. it just so happens that his best wasnt enough to get this team to where it needed to go. Not his fault.. not everyone can be a successful head coach.

I dont hate anyone in the Texans organization..player or coach.. no one has done anything to earn hate. Just some people arent performing like they are supposed to.. some people have the wrong attitude.. some people arent doing their job.. its not lazyness.. it just happens.

No one has any good excuse for "hating" anyone.

Anyway.. I hope McNair realizes that just being a good guy.. and knowledgable about football.. isnt enough to be a good head coach. Capers isnt providing the right attitude for the players, and bad decisions, and "lack of execution" has created a lack of trust between the players and coaches. A team cant win like that.. so we need to bring in some people who can light a fire under our players and get them beleiving in the system and putting 110% in the game again.
