There may have been others. At the time, I wanted them to pursue Jimmy Johnson. But, that wasn't going to happen.

I would never want to have Jimmy Johnson as our Head Coach. he might be a winner but allows thugs to be part of his team. Look at Dallas bunch of drug dealing raping thugs.

Texans have too much class for that................

I don't think you can point the finger solely at Johnson for the moral abyss the Girls went through. Remember, Tom Landry & Gil Brandt were the guys who brought Michael Irvin & Nate Newton into the organization.

But knowing what I know about Bob McNair now, he & Jimmy would have been like oil & water. Johnson was a very good coach and a great talent evaluator, but he wouldn't fit in with the Texan organization.

Let's see............. Johnson with "thugs" equal three Super Bowl rings. Look, every team doesn't have all nice guys on it. At the end of the day, that is how players and coaches are judged. I didn't know Al Saunders was a candidate for the head coaching position. I wouldn't have been mad at that decision at all. With that being said, I feel coach Capers is doing a good job.

You cant blame a coach for bringing in those types of players unless they're character issues are blantantly obvious. The reason the Cowboys passed on Randy Moss when he was drafted is because he was questionable. It might of been a good move since he is rather mouthy but man is he awesome! You mention some of the awfull players on the Cowboys but what about the ones that had class like Emmit, Troy and Darren Woodson. They were just overshadowed by the other punks.

As for Jimmy, I think it would of been awesome of the Texans picked him up as they're coach. But I like Dom Capers and think he will lead the Texans to sucess down the road. Ya talk about Jimmy being a talent evaluator but look at the future stars that Dom Capers had already picked up.
