Default Dear Mr. McNair: Reach for the phone.

It's time. It's past time. This team showed you again today what it is made of, and what it is made of I can't say on this message board. It's a sad team, sad-sack team, a mess, total chaos, completely devoid of discipline, order, authority, power, control, focus, and yes, even talent.

If I were you I'd start at the top. Cut Casserly and Capers immediately. It can't hurt. If Pendry wants to be a caretaker, let him hang around, but I expect in a show of devotion to Capers (remember, he took the OC position to "win for Dom") Pendry will resign. Doesn't matter. You need a caretaker who might have some hope of staying with the team. You know who they are.

Then you probably ought to have a meeting with whoever hangs around and tell them what you want out of the rest of the season. What you want is an extended preseason, where everybody gets a chance. Ragone. What if he's as good as the Fitzgerald guy that tore up your D today? Or Banks, maybe he's better than we imagined. And Armstrong, and . . . you make the list. Everybody Plays should be the motto for the final games.

And Carr. I'm afraid we have to admit Carr is a write-off. Maybe he had all the talent in the world and the Texans ruined him, or maybe his talent was overestimated from jump streeet, but the fact is HE DOESN'T HAVE IT NOW. It's as simple as that. If you can turn him into draft picks he could actually help this team next year, else he's just a big fat vacuum on your wallet. He'll beat you by tossing interceptions, by pulling the ball down and running a yard or two, by not sensing the pocket, by not seeing his receivers, by falling down when a D lineman coughs at him. He can beat you so many ways. Sure, he's got a great (if not always accurate) arm, and he'd kill in a sandlot game. But here in the bigs the boy is a washout.

So there you have it, sir. The Sunday Night Report. I hope you're already hard at it, working the phones. Thanksgiving is over so you don't have to hesitate to retain your classy guy status.

Oh, one more thing. While you're on the phone, please call Jimmy. I have a feeling he's ready to work again.

Carr is not a right off and JIMMY SUCKS! Jimmy had one decent draft with 14 billion picks because Minnesota was so stupid.

PLEASE QUIT WITH THIS JIMMY JOHNSON, LOOK HOW WELL HE DID WITH MIAMI AND REGULAR DRAFT PICKS!

Give Carr an O-line, get a defense that knows how to cover and get a competent coaching staff and GM. Jimmy Johnson IS NOT THE ANSWER!!

No matter who McNair picks for the next head coach one thing will be for certain. He cannot possibly be worse than Capers.

I'm convinced Ed Biles would be better than Capers.

I agree with most of your posting NH, but I'm not a Carr hater at all. He performed well enough in this game. The problem is, you have a coach that will sit on a lead instead of turning the offense loose and allowing them to put it out of reach. I'm reminded of a quarterback from California named Dan Pastorini. Most of us older guys remember him. He came out of college with all the accolades, but then played for an Oilers team that allowed him to be just plowed under the turf for most of his career. It ruined him. I still hold out hope that this isn't the case with Carr. If we can firm up our offensive line, I believe he's quite capable of making good decisions. I don't believe Roger Staubach, or Terry Bradshaw, or even the exalted Joe Montana would be any more successful with this team than Carr has. As for your opinion GE, I disagree completely. Jimmy Johnson IS the answer. And if I'm wrong, you can come post 3yrs from now and tell me I told ya so LOL

Jimmy Johnson was a good drafter in Dallas, but a terrible, horrible drafter in Miami. I can't remember how many draft picks he wasted on running backs. One year, he drafted FIVE RUNNING BACKS, and they ALL failed. Eventually, they traded for Ricky, but Jimmy hasn't had an eye for college talent in a decade.

Great post, in fact many people in the NFL have said the same about no QB in this league could have anymore success than Carr has with this team. Tony Dungy even said a few weeks back that not even his guy Peyton Manning would have success with this team.

Lord save us from the Carr Fannyboys! What is it with you guys?

David Carr is a loss farm with a big arm and almost nothing else. He had a pretty good half of football today, and that's the first pretty good half he's had all year!

And today he was outplayed by a third string QB apparently making his first appearance or first start in an NFL game.

Handwriting is on wall folks.

So Carr is at fault now for our Defense not being able to stop a 3rd stringer??

Got it:

CARRS FAULTS:

Does not pass block
Does not pick up the blitz
Does not catch his passes
Tips balls in the air
does not look for the ball
AND NOW!!!!!
Does not stop the 3rd string QB on other teams!

Yeah, Carr sucks, how could HE let that 3rd stringer make those passes, he should have come off the sidelines and made a few blindside hits or had a mirror to reflect light in the eyes of the 3rd stringer.

You mean to tell me that was David Carr out there on Defense when they gave up those TEN points? I bet that lowlife was also calling the offensive plays during the game too! Well by gawd that sucker may even be the elusive man on the grassyknoll, or better yet, SATAN! I hate him!

Great players make coaches look better than they are.

It's just being in the right place at the right time.

The Jimmy Johnsons of the NFL do one thing well: They utilize their talent when it is given to them. They never squander it, and they pull out maximum effort to get the job done when it counts. JJ had great talent for roughly five years, and he came out looking pretty good.

The Dom Capers of the NFL do one thing well: They sqaunder ALL talent. Even if he was given great talent, we'd still be 8-8 over a five year period. They have the ability to hang tough, but never the ability to drive home the stake into the hearts of other teams.

Gruden.
Billick.
JJ.
Gibbs.
Belichick.
Cowher.
Fisher.

These guys have coached teams to the Super Bowl, and they are not nice people. They are downright mean when it comes to how they approach in-game strategy. Consider Dungy, as well. They are up by a ton of points almost every game, and he KEEPS Peyton on the field to score more, and more, and more, until it just looks nasty. Those guys listed above are not in the same league as other head coaches like June Jones, Wannstedt, Mariucci, etc., who all are/were just a bunch of geeks who have no killer instinct whatsoever.

There is not that killer instinct, humiliate your opponent attitude with the Dom Capers' of the world.

They are stuck in that old-school gentlemanly thing where you trade punches all game long and "keep it close to win it" mentality.

Today's NFL is brutal. You MUST have a killer instinct, and this team in Houston--be it the Oilers or the Texans--has only had one such coach who is in the same league as those listed above (and he wasn't even the HEAD coach at the time: Buddy Ryan).

Nice guys finish last in today's NFL.

Didn't watch the game, but last I remember a QB didn't play on defense against the other QB.

Another thing that got me was that an interim coaching staff came and out coached us. :brickwall :brickwall

Jimmy Johnson record in Miami -
1996 8-8
1997 9-7
1998 10-6
1999 9-7

I wouldn't say that he sucked in Miami.
