Bob McNair made mistake number one by hiring that duo from day one. First u have a defensive specialist in Capers along with duh Charlie GM. The Boselli debacle should have been reason enuff to run them out of town. Capers was supposed to resurrect his 3-4 defense here. First draft pick David Carr. I`m not knocking Carr but Joe Montana was taken in the third round.The brainiacs should have built a defense that sported fangs and sorted fired.Can we name the Last Super Bowl winner with a mediocre defense. The first year should have been the foundation of the new House of Pain. Instead we have a franchise QB. HAHA funny How many Franchise QBs won a Super Bowl Now we are stuck with a lemon and everybody gets to drive our Carr

Why would you want to do that? If we implement an interim staff we might do something stupid like start winning. The only thing to look forward to in this miserable season is that there are only 5 games left. The draft and house cleaning to follow will be much more exciting to watch.

David Carr woke up this morning to an answered prayer. A West-coast offense coach is now available. Now that there is a decent coach out there, I look for Capers to be gone any day now.

That debacle yesterday was about as pathetic as I have seen.

Just stop for a second and think of what you are suggesting jacquescas. Look at the title of the thread you started and consider the ramifications of what you are asking the Texans to do.

Follow the Lions

Now don't take this the wrong way but...

ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?

What would possess anyone to want to follow any kind of example set by the Detroit Lions. This team has won one playoff game since 1957! They are so consistently wrong in everything they do that if they decide to do something (like fire their coach mid-season) that should serve as a warning to everyone else thinking of doing that same thing to stop and reconsider their decision.

If the Lions are doing it then it's probably a bad idea... whatever it is

Lion's are FUBAR due to McMillen, not Mooch

Pat Hill has the right attitude for this team, he'll play anyone, and take it to them. Its a winning attitude.

Not that I harbor any ill feelings toward Capers, but given that replacing Capers this season won't accomplish anything, I'd just as soon this season go on his record in full.

well looking at the rest of our schedule.. we need to sabotage ourselves somehow..otherwise we may lose the 1st pick.

McNair should fire everyone and hire some of the more vocal fools on this board as the new coaching staff. They will make sure we dont get another win this season.


Honestly though..id love to see us play more people off the bench.. see what we have for next season ..but nooooooo..that would be sacrilage.

I agree, let's keep Capers here until the bitter end. He's earned it; NO PAROLE.

Looks like his winning attitude went far against the Wolfpack of Nevada Reno.

If we are going to keep Casserly I'd fire Capers now and get on with looking at the kids for the future, and to show everyone that we are now looking forward and give permission to Casserly to start to find a new beginning. If we are going to fire Casserly I'd think that we will keep Capers and do them together at the end of the season in one big clean sweep.

I just want a firing to show that some kind of change is going to happen. I think we as fans deserve that because you gotta give us a reason to hope for next year.

Default Keep his word

McNair commented before the season that if the Texans did not continue to improve he would make major changes.

He must get rid of Capers & Casserly if he is going to have this team move in a positive direction.

McNair is a good businessman & I believe he will take the steps to get rid of these two plus others.

If he doesn't, I will be very dissappointed. :brickwall :brickwall

Now, don't everybody scream at once here - but this is an idea. Marriuchi's win record over 9 years is 52% including 7 post season games (ok, he lost 4, but that is a detail). Capers, on the other hand, in his 7 years experience has a 38% win record. How about we pick up old Steve as an interim coach, get rid of Capers so we don't have to hear the word execute anymore and see what happens. For sure it won't be worse and we'd probably still get the first draft pick. Think about it.

Mariucci has always been a cheerleader to me. This team does not need that. McNair has built a very attractive franchise that should warrant a prospective coach and GM that have tasted success in the post season.

I'm in agreement with the others. Firing Capers now (while carthartic) serves no real purpose. Instead, wait until January 2nd or 3rd and make the announcement. Fire both Casserly and Capers and his staff. If the new coach wants to bring any of them back more power to him, but I doubt it.

I'd take the 3 stooges right now to coach this team over the staff we have - its obvious changes will be coming - its just a matter of when. I can imagine Mr. Mcnair isnt getting a whole lot of good vibes or good press around town especially this Holiday season and coupled with how bad the team is performing you have to think a smart business man would have a plan for the changes allready in hand - keep a straight face to everyone and then fire them all when its over for their OTJ performance.

Vinny it has taken you along time to get to what I have been saying, but I appreciate your previous statement of firing Capers and get Casserly going on the next round and playing some of our young players more. A number of them have shown talent only to be benched when they thought the regular player might be ready. There were a number of younger players who played well at the end of year 2 who were forgotten and relegated to never never land starting year 3. As you know I favor keeping Marciano and canning everyone else on this staff. I still think we have a wealth of untrainned talent that is being used and abused literally by this staff. There isn't a player on this staff that hasn't gone downhill because of the coaching received while being a Texan. AJ, DROB, Carr, DD, and I will say WAND have suffered tremendously under the tuitorage of this staff. I want the coaches gone so the healing can begin.
