I don't care anymore, I'm putting Ibar on ignore. It's like listening to my seven year old nephew make suggestions on how to make this team better. Normally my ignore list is off limits for me because I need to see what everyone is posting in order to moderate but for this I've got to make an exception. I just can't stand it anymore.

Boselli as head coach.....inexplicable. It's like he's channeling crazy dead people or something.

At least he wouldn't stand there with his mouth open and nothing coming out. The point is we need to do something and they have obviously made it impossible to change anything, because of the point in time of the season. Like others I think you need to look else where because this coaching staff is so intertwined. They all think alike. We need change. Mr. B might really make a good O-line coach. Take your glasses off and think a little bit. What's amazing is I have been saying what's going to happen and all of you think I'm crazy. The crazy part is I have pegged the situation better than most of you who are criticizing me. Some of what I say is toungue in cheek, but unfortunately there is also an element of truth in it to. Please Herv, open your eyes, I love the Texans but not the coaches. I've been posting for a long time the players are getting a bad rap when its the coaches who are at fault. I hear players taking the blame, but I never hear it from the coaches.

Default Admit it Coaches/You blew this game!

I don't like Bill Parcells, but when his team turns in a bad performance, he shoulders the blame and takes action to correct the problem. I don't hear the texan coaches admiting mistakes were made. Give the players a chance. The cowboys addressed the problems in the off-season and appear to be a better team. We do not appear to have corrected our problems. Where was the 3 step drop and quick release? This was the least prepared texan team i have ever seen and the coaches need to be held accountable.

Default Palmer must go

It has become clear that Chris Palmer must go as the Texans OC. This team needs a shock in the offensive category that can only come from a change in coaches. While they are at it, they should replace the O-Line coaches as well. This team has some good players on the offensive line, but I think they lack coaching on how to pick up a freaking blitz or even read one at that. Case in point: the Indianapolis Colts O-Line is probably one of the smallest in the league. Playing against one of the best Defenses in the league last night, they were able to keep Mannings head attached. If David Carr does not have the ability to work with the O-Line to read Defenses, maybe we should find another QB. I really like the kids toughness and his arm strength, but come on.... learn to read a defense please before you get killed out there.
I love that my hometown has another football team, but it is hard being a fan of a team like the one that showed up yesterday.

Default Jimmy Johnson with Bob McNair makes sense now!!

I think JJ's time in houston is now. This guy doesn't need 4 years to build a winner. The OL we should keep Chester Pitt and Wade and send the rest packing. And as far as the linebackers.. it seems that Caper doesn't know how to evaluate talent..we got red of Jeff Posey the one season sack record holder with the Texans..we let Steve Foley go and now he is a productive LB with San Diago Sharper might've been slower that Greenwood but he was around the ball all the time Forman was a great backup. Antwan Peek is not a starter and Babin is lazy. I never read any where were he is in the wheight room in the off season, all I read about him is his hunting ranch. P.Buc was torched yesterday..It burns my *** to see this Orginzation getting rid of proven players before the new one they brought in can prove that they can take their spot. And for those who are asking for Caserly is head. CC isn't the one who evaluate talent, he just signs the ones the scouts and Capers ask for. I say bring JJ on board.

I would love to see JJ in Houston as the head coach. He has a fire for the game, will get in players a** for botching a play, and I think he's a better judge of the team's needs.

This team in my opinion has needed more offensive help than anything. I almost feel like Carr is not very confident in his O-line - I mean after getting sacked so many times I don't think I'd be either. He's got a great arm and can get out of situations we've seen it very few times. I question why Reggie Swinton and Sloan Thomas were cut -they played very well in the of-season, even though we lost 3 times. That made no sense. Surely that would have meant more wide out options aside from AJ. Our Triple Threat of DC, AJ, and DD has not made much noise and I think that is a big shame, Chris Palmer. As far as defense go, I think they can only do so much when offense is not putting up much of a fight to keep possession of the ball. They have given up some yards, though, and they could rush the passer more. Afterall weren't they supposed to be leaner and quicker this season??? Why aren't they able to get to the QB???

Bottomline, WE WANT THIS TEAM TO WIN!!!!!!!!!

JJ as head coach...Goerge Seifert as Offensive coordinator and bring in new blood from college for the D or even keep Caper for that mater and get rid of Fangio.

Capers is a micro-manager who is also a control freak. Butch Davis was the

with is note taking (afraid he'll miss something). How much input do you
think Capers gives his OC/DC? I'll bet he runs/controls this offense more
than Palmer. If Palmer calls the plays, I'll bet it's from a short list from
Capers. I'm not saying Palmer is the answer but letting Capers stay will
only be more of what we've seen already. He is the problem.

There were a couple of good points on 610 today that echo what several
posters have mentioned. First, Buffalo's Head Coach(2nd yr) put his new QB
starter in a position to succeed--Capers does not do that. Second, Buff
determined they needed to revamp their OL and started by signing a LT.
...several other teams signed new LT's, as well. No one in the NFL has a
worse 'result oriented' OL than the Texans and we all saw the same
yesterday. Gel? That's a big part of the Texans problem. First, it was the
expansion label--now, it's 'gel.' While the Texans need time for their OL to
'gel' other teams--like the Bills with their second yr rookie coach-make it
happen...it's all about what you'll accept.

No, IMO, if we're going to keep Capers then no other changes will help--
in fact, for Capers, it's just an excuse for 'gelling' to the new change.

that could work. JJ and Seifert. Capers as defensive coordinator... well , defense to me hasn't been all that bad. Afterall if you're out on the field most of the game you're bound to mess up.

Default Two coaches to keep in mind

Brian Billick of Baltimore may be looking for a job if the Ravens dont make the playoffs this season (a distinct possibility)


Mike Holmgren of Seattle may be looking for a job as well.


I doubt either of them would take an OC or DC job.. but its still something to consider.


(should I have posted this in the NFL forum?)

Default One simple reason why Jimmy Johnson should be next coach

He knows how to properly and effectively coach a stud QB, a stud RB, and a stud WR.

It was Aikman, Smith, and Irvin.

And now it IS Carr, Davis, and Johnson.

He's got the background of knowing how to make those three maximize their talents.

He's got the rings to show he can get it done.

And I think he'd like nothing more than to play in Texas and renew the rivalry with Jerry Jones.

He didn't go far in Miami for a very simple reason: He lacked a good QB (Marino was in the golden twilight of his career) and he lacked a good WR. Maybve I;m mistaken, but I even think he didn't have a star-quality RB either. He just didn't have the stars that we have. If you were looming to land a head coaching job, wouldn't you salivate at the thought of Carr-Davis-Johnson?

Seriously, JJ would clean house and rebuild this thing around Carr-Davis-Johnson. Aikman got slaughtered his first season behind a weak line. And then a couple years later, the Cowboys just mysteriously were playing big boy ball? Not a coincidence. JJ was in total control, drafted or bought the players he needed to compliment his QB/RB/WR and the rest is history. He did it there, but he probably couldn't do it here unless McNair opens up the wallet and gambles a little bit.

Sorry. I'm trying to post SOMETHING constructive in the wake of all of my griping. Time to move on (for me) but this is the first step. I just can't see this team going on with Capers. This daydream I have is all I know to do to get out of the funk.

I expect the standard "you're nuts" replies. No problem. Just trying to exhibit some constructive thinking.

You're nuts, but only on JJ.

We do need a leader for this team, because it is not coming from our team. A dominating personality is all that is going to whip these guys in shape. Only G-Funk has the credibility and mouth to make it happen. We may need a type A personality like JJ to coach this team.

Default Give him this year to win 9-10

..Looks like most of us are seeing things the same. I grew impatient with Capers last year with as much talent as he had. (and then traded for some stupid reason, ie. Jamie Sharper) This guy has his head in a notebook constantly . Details, stats and play results etc...He get and "f" for motivating and getting into the minds and hearts of his players on game day. Most anal types like him are lacking in people skills. I give him this year to win 9-10 games. if he doesn't its time to shop for a new coach and Offensive coordinator. We dont need some incumbant who got lucky with his first expansion team (Carolina)!!
