Y'all know the way that when you say a word over and over and over it stops making sense? I don't even know what execute means at this point. It is like a few muffled, unknown syllables. Execute, execute, execute, execute, execute, execute, execute. What does it mean??? That dude is KILLING me!!! He's executing me!! Someone neeeeeds to be executed. Good grief.:brickwall

All that said, I'm not going to give up on my team. GO TEXANS!!

And did I hear Carr correctly after the game say "we're getting better"? Um, wasn't this the 11th game of the season? Granted, the first half was the best effort so far this year - but he seemed a little too excited that they looked better Sunday. Sorry - that giddiness doesn't work when your record is 1-10.

Let me post a specific about Capers.

Rewind to the Chiefs game. AJ has just got the 15yd penalty for shoving the ball in the Chief player's face. Theismann and company are talking about how a head coach is supposed to get in a player's face and remind him that he IS going to get hit, he IS going to receive some cheap shots, and he IS expected to keep his cool when he gets them. They wrap up their point by saying there is no excuse for losing your cool and drawing the unsportsmanlike penalty.

Well, in a telling Capers moment, while they are saying all this, AJ walks over to sideline, and explains what happened to Capers. At the same time ESPN is saying there is no excuse, Capers finishes hearing what AJ says and you then see him nod in agreement with what AJ just told him. Capers pats him on the arm or something as AJ walks away, and then resumes his sideline stare.

Classic Capers!

Instead of getting in AJ's face and reminding him there is no excuse, Capers just rolls over. The players are running this team, there is no discipline here, and we need a coaching change NOW before this gets worse.

This is the same kinda behavior T.O. didn't tolerate. IN SF, and in Philly(McNabb and Reid). I think he is/was right, and I'd have done the same thing. It's a shame, when no one else will see the plight of the only player on the team that wants to win.

I WILL be here next year, regardless! I have a question. Just how can ANYONE (Capers) be motivated and or motivate game by game, when so many people are screaming for his head on a platter? I personally would like to see and hear more positive things about our team and coaches and staff to inspire their abilities and encourage them to play and coach to what I want to believe are their potentials. Just my opinion.

The one positive thing I got from the Rams game was that Carr is almost as good as a 7th rounder.

OK, here is one...
What would our season look like if the Texans had played every half, up until now, just like they played the first half, yesterday?

I would take that "motivation" as feedback, though not positive, and realize that obviously my system is not working the way I had planned. If I also knew most likely my job was on the line, yeah I may buy out early - but I'd probably go donw guns blazing and try some craxy things for that slight glimmer of hope that my job could be saved.

Of course, it's hard to know what one would really do in that situation, till they're in it. I think Capers has been in this situation before though, so he is probably just going through the inevitable motions.

More motivation should come from the person before looking to others to motivate that same person. There was quite a bit of "extra motivation" coming from the fans the first half.

Somehow I am having nightmarish thoughts. Bob McNair must be from Hazzard County. If he keeps the Stooges(Charlie.Dom,and Carr) he got to a good ole boy never meaning no harm. Charlie wouldn`t Draft a stud like Reggie Bush but trade for more picks to get more Jason Babins and Phillip Buchanans and Tony Hollings. somebody pinch me!!!

It comes with the territory. He's paid millions and this isn't high school. These guys know what they are getting into when they sign on the dotted line and I doubt that any coaching staff would receive a kind, considerate, and understanding response from the fan base when the team is 4-16 in their last 20 games. They have failed.

Well said.
Those who have defended Dom for being a nice guy...well he does look like one, but we didn't hire him to be nice. See where nice put us.

It is time to put true meaning in Capers' favorite word. Time to execute the end of the 5 year plan and Capers' exit.
