Nah, I always figured that if they fired Capers, Palmer would take over. Actually thats what I was hoping to happen and Palmer would just be an interm Head Coach.

This is kinda like having a flat tire, and discovering your spare is flat. But what the hel#$,
you put the spare on anyway! Great choice there DOM... Note to Charlie... if you think
changing the name of the OC is all it takes to appease the fan base, your name may be the
next one the Texans should change! Remember that the fans are watching and if we don't
see blocking, play variety, and motivation you will here about quickly.

Note to Dom.. stop making excuses.. Get pissed off! (you should be next if things continue)
Note to Carr... don't give up yet
Note to Dunta... Thanks


This team needs increased dimension, and heart. Find it!

You got it! McNair did this to see what Capers does on his own. If he turns it around then he stays, if we have a losing record he goes.

While I am happy that changes are being made I also am not very confident in its out come.

We have just handed over the entire offense to the person responsible for our offensive line!!!

Gee, I want who the next one to get the ax will be??

I'd rather have an OC that believes in the HC's gameplan than one who believes in almost the polar opposite.

Good move Mr Mcnair.

What a con job.

We've been had....again.

I'm not happy. Not the least bit.

Capers AND Palmer should have both been fired at the same time.

This just prolongs our misery. The guy sitting up in the booth shouldn't be the first coach to get the axe. Capers is the HEAD coach, and he either is not overriding Palmer's playcalling, or he is.

Judging by the two guys' track record, I would say that Capers has been overriding the playcalling a lot.

I envision the successful plays being called by Palmer and "approved of" by Capers before the play makes it to the QB, and I see those three TE sets where we run it for one yard being Capers' calls. Each time we had success with a great play call, Capers probably then inserted his own playcalling during the next few plays to try and see if HIS playcalling would work, too.

Palmer is "said" to be a guy who wants to open up the book and pass the ball more, and Capers is "said" to be the conservative grandpa who can be counted on for a run right up the gut.

Which has been successful, and which has not?

Who calls the run up the gut on 3rd and forever and who calls the fake reverse and TD throw to DD?

Hmmmmmm?

This was a mercy killing, and Capers is getting one last shot. If Pendry got fired for being too conservative, we are in for blowouts BIG TIME.

Ya'll can be happy if you want.

Only one of those two guys in the story (Capers) should have been fired first and foremost. If Capers gets axed a few games later, then I'll be happy and I will see that they had to fire Palmer before Capers for procedure's sake.

But this is not making me any happier. Whoop-dee-do.

This is all about Capers pointing the finger at a scapegoat to save his *** a little longer. He better hope the team does a 180 in the next couple games.

I feel bad, but this has really made my day. Front office noticing our team is sucking, someone gets fired. I feel bad Palmer got fired, but happy to see someone doing something. Good luck elsewhere Chris! Dont worry, Dom is right behind you.

I guess McMair is not a true fan because he is disgusted with the team's performance so far...lol!

I would assume Pendry is a temporary replacement until seasons end. McNair is sending a message to the coaches, players, and fans.

This won't fix anything, but its a great sign from the owner and I would expect this is the beginning of things to come throughout the season as well as during the off season.

This season was over before it started...

So now we'll see three tight ends all the time instead of three tight ends on one play followed by four wides on the next. I hated the inconsistency.

I believe the only reason Capers still has a job is because of the extreme amount of retooling this team would have to go through to even field a team. Not that we fielded much of a team over the past two weeks anyways. If Pendry is just as unsuccessful as Palmer then I'm sure Capers will be out of here as fast as you can say...

GO TEXANS!

No. They've been blaming each other for awhile. They owed it to see who was right and Dom was the guy they hired.

Let him run the offense with the 3 TEs all he wants to, he will be signing his death warrant.

I think the fan base, for the most part, has been patient last few years but the regression to an expansion team is simply unacceptable.

*Sigh. Well, it's a start. I do agree that Pendry may just be interim. Supposedly he was able to help Buffalo get to the playoffs when Wade Phillips was coaching there. Capers was able to do that for Carolina one time as well. So I'm just gonna wait and see what happens. WAKEY, WAKEY TEXANS!!!!! Time to step up your game. Jobs are on the line.
