as frustrating as it is to see the Texans perform they way they have, i don't know if McNair or Casserly could justify a total regime change. if you think things look out of sync now, imagine how bad it would be if these players were asked to learn new schemes and plays on the fly. i think McNair/Casserly lets the rest of the season play out and will make the wholesale changes everyone's been clamoring for if no significant improvement is made (which would be sad if that was the case).

even though i was never convinced Palmer was the right guy for the job in the first place, i do have to concede that his firing probably was PR-motivated.

on the other hand, i do have a renewed sense of optimism for this season. the playoffs are out of the question, but i'm hoping this marks a turnaround of sorts.

McNair couldn't fire the HC at this point, what would he do in the offseason
to sell tickets and build new hope for the 2006 season if this whole thing doesn't get turned around before year end. And I'm not sure that
Palmer would have got fired now if not for the bye week - the press and fans have 2 weeks to howl and the noise would have gotten intolerable. I think the move would have been to fire Capers and promote Palmer to HC. Everybody wants to make Hoak DC, but he's just younger and therefor more appealing to a lot of the fan base than Fangio.
The problem with the team is across the Board.
And yesterday was also a really bad day for Cass - two of his biggest moves, in the form of the Babin & Buchanan acquisitions, got benched.
No problem though, I may ***** about the Texans now but they are still my team ! And if we end up something like, oh 2-14, we might still be 10-6 next year. That's how the NFL is these days. I waited 3 years for results, another year or 2, hey whatever, still glad we got the franchise. Consider the alternative.

Nice to finally see some accountability for the players though. That is probably the biggest positive I take from the last game.

I like this move, firing Palmer.

Was Palmer the source of all our problems? we CANNOT say for sure. I think alot of us feel that he was only part of the problem, but we wont know that for sure for a few more weeks.

Firing Capers at this point in the season would be a bad move IMO. Lets hold onto him.. at the end of the season, if things dont fix themselves, we will be able to pick from the other released headcoaches to replace any gaps in our coaching staff.. whether it be OC, DC, or HC.. or all three.

For now.. I like this change.. hopefully it will boost the spirits of our players a bit.. let them know that we are willing to cut people loose if they arent helping the team win.
