I know we all want Capers gone but I am really beginning to consider getting rid of Fangio and letting Capers run the defense all together.

This is my thing: If our QB is getting knocked around, at 0-5 I'm trying to hit the other teams QB from now on whether we get to him by the time he tries to throw or not. Until the Texans start making teams pay for stuff, they will continue to get pushed around. Next year, I am not caring about players that are locker room cancers and have a history of a bad rep. There are entirely too many nice guys on our team.

I am curious who will be the new Head Coach after this year. The only member of the coaching staff I hope they keep is Hoke. I think it is time to go in another direction. Any ideas??

hoke is given the interim coaching job to determine if he needs to be retained.

aside from that all assitants are expendable...coordinators r gone and capers gets the axe at zero eight hundred tommorow.

Fangio is Capers' coach. They do everything the same. Swapping one for the other won't change anything. Pendry is the offensive version of Capers. Capers has what he wants and the players he wants. Look what Capers wants for the Texans.

I have a few hopes for whom they release at the end of the season: I want them to get rid of Buchanan, anybody the Raiders don't want can't possibly be worth having. He commits grand larceny every time he cashes his pay-check!! He has no heart and he does not seem to interact with his team mates much. Joppru has not played one down for this team, it is time so part ways with this guy. I think the 3-4 has outlived its usefulness. It is time to switch to 4-3 we should retain Johnson, Smith, and Walker (Leadership) Put Babin at his natural position: DE go find another DE. I hope they keep Peek, Greenwood, and Orr. The only member of the secondary worth keeping is Robinson.

I would like to see them keep Carr, A. Johnson, Davis, and Wells. Hollings is another thief. The receiving corps needs to be cleaned out, I am tired of these guys not making teams pay for doubling and tripling Johnson.

I can't believe the Texans gave up draft picks for him!! So now all we really have is our first round that IF by some unknown reason Capers and Cass are still here, we will waste that pick on a position we don't need much like they did this last off-season.

Default Quick question

By this time do we even try the rest of the season or just go for the #1 draft pick and hope the Lienart lottery can net us some handsome later picks?

The masculine part of me wants to go for the former, but the rational part of me screams for the latter. Isn't it funny how often the masculine parts of ones mind conflicts with the rational?

Anyway, if Dommy isn't gone by tomorrow there will be some very angry people in this city.

As a side note, we could have the best baseball team in the MLB and the worst football team in the NFL.

I thought we had our full complement of picks this up-coming draft? I was hoping that since we have such a head start, we just try to win the Matt Leinart Sweepstakes, trade the pick to some one who needs a QB for their 1st, 3rd rd picks this year, plus their 1st rd pick next year.

Contrary to what some of you think I would like to see someone from the outside step in and start cleaning house. I would like Dan Reeves, but I don't think Jimmy is the one. I do not want any of the assistants to take over because it would be just more of the same. Capers is a lame duck and what's worse you can see it in his expressions or lack there of...........

I doubt that Casserly would be fired. He'll have to hire the replacement coach.

Besides, it's my opinion that Capers has had a big hand in choosing some of our players in the draft. Trading away all those picks for Babin & Buchanon, & drafting TJ when Jammal Brown(OT), Alex Barron(OT), Chris Spencer(C), Logan Mankins(G), David Baas(C), & several potential impact skill players were still available, had to be initiated by Capers.

and dom capers was a defensive minded coach????? i mean, it is one thing to see the offense struggle, but the defense has been flat out embarrasing. our defense just forced the first turnover this season, and all it was was a stupid careless pass right at troy evans, a guy who isnt even a starter. that is freakin pathetic. i can definitely see capers getting fired by tomorrow morning, but i think that casserly will stick around till the end of the season.

We have a full complement plus an extra 3rd. The picks given up for Buchanon were last year's picks.

Maybe it's McNair walking down to Casserly's office and noting - find me a quality coaching staff or you're soon to follow.

Now you know why Palmer didn't put up much of a fight when he jumped ship.....

Players will be held accountable for their own actions. I want to make it extremely clear that this behavior will never be tolerated again.

-- Minnesota owner Zygi Wilf, to the Twin Cities media Friday.

From http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...b.week6/2.html


Sure wish the Texans coaches/staff would take that kind of leadership and hold their players accountable for their actions (or inaction). I will also add this quote from Wilf and say it should apply to the Texans organization as well:

I am embarrassed. My family is embarrassed. My partners are embarrassed. The NFL is embarrassed. And anyone who respects this franchise is embarrassed. You have my promise that I will do everything in my power to ensure that unacceptable behavior does not occur ever again.

You would see similar statements from McNair if the Texans were accused of molesting women or performing sexual acts with hookers on rented boats in front of the crewmembers. There are plenty of things to complain about right now without making things up.

Did you see Capers yelling, "Go for it. Let's go for it." on fourth down, and then kris Brown gets sent out to kick the field goal (The lone FG we had)?

I felt sorry for Capers. Nobody listened to him. He was wanting to go for it, and the kicking team got sent out. Now THAT is sad. To be the head coach, and to be saying "Go for it. Let's go for it. Go for it" over and over and as you're saying it...the kicking team trots out.

He didn't yank them back and get mad. He just let it happen.

He's the HC and his decision was cancelled out without asking him, or without Capers putting up a fight.

Unbelievable. That was the one scene that stuck in my head all night, and it still remains there today. Unbelievable.

Was this the first field goal or the 2nd one? I can't believe this - well yes I can.
