I to was impressed with Capers composure. Frankly I want Capers gone to and were all gonna get our wish soon most likely, but as far as I'm concerned the guy who callled in was a jerk, real classless.

My wish is for him to stay and in all likelihood I will get my wish at least through the 2006 season.

We already know of your wishes. I wish you would start talking any kind of football without trying to bait arguments just because you are a bored man.

He doesnt have to do the show but I'm pretty sure Mr. McNair strongly suggests that he does. The Texans get VERY little airtime. They need all the exposure they can get. I'm always happy when I hear Texan talk on the radio but I'm not going to bow down and kiss Capers feet for gracing me with a few minutes of his time.

True. Capers does seem like a good guy, but as far as head coach of our team, it's just not working. I did a lol about the fan that called and asked that question, but that was messed up.

Like many of you I really like the guy and truly want him to succeed, but...

I wonder if Capers just forgot it was on page 3 of his notepad?

I admire Capers. He is a man that deserves great respect. He treats people with respect and is a man of honor and integrity.

Unfortunately, he needs to be fired. He has lost the ability to be successful here. Also, it's quite apparent that the collaberation between Casserly and Capers is an utter failure.

What's your guys take on this?

Coaching Change

Okay Bob McNair, what do you do? You know something is amiss right now.

#1-------Do you try to make it through this year hoping for the best? A
complete turn-a-round!
#2-------Do you fire Casserly the GM?
#3-------Do you fire Capers?
#4-------Do you fire both Casserly and Capers?
#5-------Do you wait till mid-season before making a change?

I say #3 you fire Capers now! Why wait to the end of the season or even mid season. It's quite obvious, you have no defense, you have no offensive line that can block. I say hire Gary Kubiak NOW. He can start his program right now(not a totally revamped offense) but something. Okay, you wait until the end of the year, hire Gary Kubiak, you have wasted this year, now you are going into the next 2006 season for some rebuilding. Why waste any more time? Four years is down the drain, get Gary now!!!! Let him start NOW trying to put the wheels back on this team.

Don't even try Hoke or Brown leapfrogging to the top. How would any of them be an improvement? Our best "interim" HC was fired before the BYE week. Capers should finish the year and be released @ 7pm Jan 1st.

CC and his staff are bucolic in the way they are handling this situation. This isn't some pastoral scene with little sheep bounding around - this is American Football, and it has to be treated like American Football. You have to be strong and dominant. Capers is showing no such effort - not on the field, and not in his interviews.
