Default Texan Quotes

From audio section in Houston Chronicle Sports--

Capers-- "...out of rhythm..."
Carr-- "Bills were on everything..."
Davis--"not embarrased, just got to get better.."

Still, I've never heard Capers blame himself for a loss/team play. If he
thinks he is not=at least=part of the problem, then changes are going
to be slow at coming, if at all. Usually, he finds no fault with his game
plan, just the players execution of that game plan. One poster compares
Capers to Belechik--please, go read the Pats site where there are always
tons of interviews with their head coach--and he actually accepts blame.

Honestly I like what Capers WANTS to do .... Run the ball and control the clock / dictate the game based on the teams ability to run the ball ....The problem is two fold ....

A) he doesnt really have the personel to do this ... a Big Bruiser type back (Stephen Davis) and an O-line that is DOMINANT .... Taking Nothing away from DD , I think he's a great back but not for Capers offense .... send him to St. Louis or , Philly or even New England and I think he's an instant All Pro as those teams run offenses more suited to his skills..... just my opinion.

B) Everyone on the planet knows what Capers wants to do and they gear their gameplan twards stopping the run on first and second down which usually leaves David Carr in 3rd and 6 or more in which case the defense knows they have to pass ...

Add those things to the fact that Capers WILL NOT make adjustments as the game progresses you have a defense that knows what to expect on just about every play of the game .

I think Capers would make a much better Defensive Coordinator than he does Head Coach ...

And you like what he wants to do? I don't like it one bit. That conservative style of football is not entertaining in my eyes.

I know that Carolina and every other organization since them would agree with ya.

The difference here is that the Pats have player who execute what the coach call so therefore if there is a screw up, it is the coaches fault. The Texans don't have players who execute!

You've figured it out, lets just hope McNair does.

that's simply not true, I've seen him standing with his hands on his hips, mouth open, staring blankly across the field, dumbfounded, and the next thing ya know he'll switch his weight from one leg to the other. That's an adjustment isn't it?

I SAW THAT TOO!

I thought it was just me and maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me but if you saw it then that means it really happened! Did you see the time today when he waved at the players coming off the field with his notepad in his left hand and then later changed that to his right hand? Could that have been another adjustment?

Capers: On the offense - I was really encouraged by our field position on a few series. We just tried to take what they were giving us and keep it close. We'll make a few adjustments this week and come in ready to play the Steelers on Sunday.

Glad he saw something that encouraged him!

A few adjustments? If we even want to have a chance at beating the Steerlers, then we'd better make more than a few!

Why do our games have to be close...I want the mentality of let's go in there and kick the crud out of the other team.

Don't worry guys, it's only week one. Next week is when it really counts....They will be ready by then lol.

This wasn't a direct quote from Capers, just a sarcastic guess on what he is going to say.

Best quote of the day from Capers...

"I don't think our offensive performance was really what we were looking for out of our total offensive team. David was under pressure alot and I think that probably led to some of the turnovers."

Spoken like a true coaching genius.
