thought it was a good article.



"These days, teams change fast," said Capers, who is in his second season as the Dolphins' defensive coordinator. "It's amazing to me to look at the Texans and how few guys are still there just a couple of years later. They've done a nice job with their personnel. They are a good-looking football team."

Backhanded jab at Casserly.

I'd say it's more of a compliment to Rick Smith.

I agree. Capers is a lousy head coach, but no question about him as a person. Some coaches (Norv Turner???) are better coordinators than head coaches.

I've always thought Capers was getting the shaft as far as personel goes. But the way he handled games with his gameplans was awful, and the coordinators that he hired were bad as well. But he is a class act, I always kind of felt bad for him but he needed to go.

I am not sure how much input he had on personnel. I thought he was all over the Babin deal thinking he was the next Kevin Greene.

No bones about it Capers is a class act guy but he, just as much as Casserly, played a part in his demise in the organization.

yeah, we're all real amazed, Dom. :rolleyes:

I stopped caring what Capers thought about things sometime during a 2-14 season when we failed to have a single lead in the first six games of the season.

Does he say anything about how great we execute now?

What was the first clue that the team was different--the back-to-back wins?

Good man, good defensive coach...good luck, good riddance.

Well untill someone puts it in a book....I always thought C.C. did exactly what he was told to do. Who ever it was, the tallent of the class excuse only goes so far. Way to many misses. I can see how both would want to crawlfish as far away from that record as they could get. A lot of people have fallen on thier swords for the franchise. We'll probably never know the whole truth. That Capers is baffled at the turn over is prety telling. Either he had a clue or he didn't. Or he doesn't want to admit that he did.

He didn't develop some of the good talent that he had. Fred Weary for one prime example, but there are other players who got short circuited by him and his stellar staff as well. The owner, GM, and coaches all had to work hard to make as many mistakes as this team has made through it's short history.

But he is a decent man; no argument there.

If you have time to tell us how cool the party was in every single post then I'm sure you have time to at least check your spelling.

I'm not even sure what you just said.
