Well if this is the case, I have to admit it is a start. Perhaps I will continue with the season then but there are more heads that need to roll!

This is just a precursor of things to come, although I think this firing is akin to choppin' off a leg to cure a headache

Texans fire play-caller Chris Palmer
Offensive coordinator ousted following 0-2 start
By JOHN MCCLAIN
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle






Chris Palmer, the Texans offensive co-ordinator since their inception in 2002, was fired this morning and was replaced by offensive line coach Joe Pendry.


The beleagured Chris Palmer, under fire because the Texans offense has scored only two touchdowns in losses to Buffalo and Pittsburgh, got the word during a meeting with coach Dom Capers at Reliant Stadium.

Contacted today, the Texans said they would not comment until Capers' regularly scheduled news conference at 3 p.m. .

Pendry takes over the play-calling responsibilities.

Because the Texans have a bye week, Pendry has two weeks to prepare for the next game at unbeaten Cincinnati.

Pendry, a long-time NFL coach, who was offensive coordinator at Carolina and Buffalo, will try to develop some consistency in an offense that has been unproductive against the Bills and Steelers, the two-best defensive teams in the NFL last season.

Interestingly, Pendry was fired by Capers after the 1997 season at Carolina. Although, it was never confirmed, there was specualtion that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson made Capers fire Pendry, who was under fire because his offense was too conservative and unimaginative.

It's going to get worse. We, unfortunately, are the worst team in the NFL.

Allthough I am not much of a Palmer fan, Capers needs to go. The offense does much better when they pass more not less. Palmer is run and shoot. Capers runs the ball until he punts and is probably going to start punting on third down so he won't have to pass.

I guess now we will all be able to tell if it was Capers over riding Palmer or Palmer just being really really bad at his job. Either way, if Pendry doesnt succeed then we can count on Capers being the next head to roll.

Hopefully Capers was left on the job to fire Palmer and now they will fire Capers.
