Lack of Discipline
DD thanking his fullback for DD getting his yards and for DD looking good for getting his yards after the team lost, is another example of what is wrong with this team. THE TEXANS TEAM LOST... WHAT IS HE DOING TALKING ABOUT PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS?
The Texans have consistently shown a lack of discipline, I think Capers has not had a grasp of this team players from day one. Most of the players come for winning teams, some examples of Capers lack of discipline are:
1. When Payton Manning was directing the Colts last year for a fourth quarter victory against the Texans, the CBS cameras all of a sudden switch to Carr and his OL laughing and totally not paying attention to the playing field. While Manning was moving the ball against the Texans for the go ahead touch down, our multimillionaire quaterback wasn't even paying attention to the game. I just hope that the jokes were very good. It falls on Capers, right after that shot, the cameras showed Capers taking notes and not even paying atttention to what was happening on the field!!!
2. False starts, illegal motions...all fall under the coaches responsibilitiy
3. Can I ask a simple question? I am not as smart as most people on this board are, as far as football is concerned...how does Caper know when to ask for a Coaches' challenge when he is not looking at the action on the field because he is writing notes? When the opposing receiver was clearly inbounds and he challenged that ruling, can anyone honestly say that Capers was looking? Someone upstairs yelled CHALLENGE and he threw the flag.. the more I see Capers, the more I remember Jack Pardee...nice guy, excellent person, everybody likes him, but his headset is NOT on!!!!
And while I am at it, can anybody please tell me why our genius Fangio coordinator insist on having a 250 lb Linebacker cover a 180 lbs receiver all game long? Why do we go to a zone defense when it's first and goal for the opposing offense? Why do we rush 2 guys and send 9 guys into coverage on second and third downs... Why Mr Capers are we last in the NFL in third down allowance? Why is it third and 10 for the opposing offenses and we have 2 guys rush the passer???
OUR DEFENSE IS ALMOST THE WORST IN THE LEAGUE>>> WHAT IS CASSERLY GOING TO DO ABOUT IT... SING THAT EVERYTHING IS WELL LIKE HE DOES ON TV...CHANNEL 11.. CASSERLY IS PART OF THE PROBLEM!!!
Houston is not an expansion city. We were all at one time Oilers fans. We know a good defense when we see one. Buddy Ryan took an average set of players and molded them into one of the top 2 defenses in the league in just one year!!! Those players were going at it 200% because they didn't want to miss an assignment and go back to the sidelines a look at Buddy's face. With this team, players can miss assignments all day long and Capers is not even looking!!! He is taking notes!!!
