Default For Those Who Can't Wait: Capers Gone

Just announced on ESPN that Texans players have confirmed that Capers has been fired.
Guess Capers had a team meeting before the official announcement, scheduled at three pm, and some of the players have discussed it with outsiders.

PS One of those mentioned as his replacement has his team playing right now on espn. Iowa coach Ferenz (sp)

Still no "official" statement on either ESPN, CNNSI, or NFL.com.

Is Steve McKinney the only player who will talk to the Chronicle, or is he the only player the Chronicle wants to talk to? I swear he's been quoted (by far) more than any other Texans player.

We all knew it was coming, it's still kind of sad, he was our first ever coach and is a class act, I wish him well wherever he goes.

LOL. And I guess his quotes to the Chronicle are better than his neverending Blue-Crush-and-mayo-packet airplane stories every Tuesday morning during the 2003 season.

Default Mixed Emotions on Dom

Ever since Dom Capers started getting rid of some of our important veterans I was beginning to question whether or not he'd be around much longer. I used to say I wanted him to stick around and possibly be a defensive coordinator. Does the name Aaron Glenn ring and bells? Don't even get me started on PB! I just hope he imporves a lot next season.

I wish Capers all the luck he is a classy man and a good cordinator, I hope he lands on his feet somewhere.

Now that he is gone its time for everyone to put the soap away. Fire Capers Club dismissed and disband.

Default Capers Gone!!!

Capers addressed the team that he had been let go!


BOUT TIME!







Houston Texans Fire Coach Dom Capers By KRISTIE RIEKEN, AP Sports Writer
28 minutes ago



HOUSTON - Dom Capers has been fired as coach of the Houston Texans, who had the NFL's worst record this season, the players were told Monday.

ADVERTISEMENT

Capers addressed the team at a meeting Monday morning and told players he had been let go. He was accompanied by owner Bob McNair, several players said.

"It was emotional. It was difficult. I felt sorry for him," said offensive lineman Steve McKinney.

The Texans will retain general manager Charley Casserly, a person close to the organization told The Associated Press on Sunday. The Texans planned to make the announcement officially Monday, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Houston finished the season 2-14, the worst record in the NFL and in the Texans' four-season history, with a 20-17 overtime loss in San Francisco on Sunday.

You know with capers being fired im still not satisfied, i honestly want both pendry and fangio gone, there as much of the problem as capers was. both so extremley conservative that with a 30 point lead we probably couldnt hold on to it.

He's one of the few who doesn't mumble, so he can be understood, and he can string three sentences together without sounding like he's illiterate. It's not like he has a lot of competition there.
