Umm, look at one of the lead stories on this website. Capers -- who coached the Panthers to that achievement, by the way -- is NOT looking for that same kind of quick move. He has always looked for slow, steady growth and that's the way he is approaching it. And if you will recall, following the Panthers and Jags brief appearance in the playoffs, they collapsed for several years before they began to emerge out of the muck just recently. Those were also the days that the two expansion teams got sweetheart draft deals from the league -- something neither the Browns nor the Texans ended up getting in their first drafts.
