Sometimes great coaches turn good players into great players (Belichick). Other times great teams make good coaches look great (J Johnson or Ditka). When a good coach has had talent around them and that talent leaves, the coach usually gets booted (Coughlin) no matter their past performances. There are always exceptions (Cowher & Fisher) but one or 2 bad seasons usually get your coaching staff fired. Sometimes coordinators are promoted to HC because they performed so well that they "deserve a chance". That's not always the case. Some are better suited to remain coordinators (Wannstedt, G Williams and maybe Capers).

It's rare that a coaching change brings immediate success (Fox & Gruden). If it does it's usually because them team was very good to begin with (Gruden again) and they coasted along for the ride. Most coaches are thrown a team that isn't performing and are given a few years to get things going. If they fail they are replaced and the cycle repeats.

Capers is supposed to be a defensive "guru" and has "disciplined" teams. During our brief history we are horrible at pre-snap penalties (lack of discipline) and our defenses have been anemic at best. Some of this is due to lack of talent but I've seen less penalties watching NCAA teams. Capers has helped build this team into what it is. He is responsible for it status right now along with his entire coaching staff and Mr Casserly.

That said, does that mean we need to change coaching staffs? I just don't know. What if Capers turns this around and next week we win? What if it continues and we wind up 9-7 or better? I just can't decide yet.

Did I see a picture of Jimmy Johnson with McNair the other day? You know J.J. is motivated by what the Tuna is doing in Big D.

I think Toro would be a better choice right now, to replace Capers and Charlie

What is it about J Grey that makes people think he would be a good HC?

Put me down for Jimmy Johnson first and Gary Cubiak 2nd.
