That was a good piece, I found it interesting how most of our ex coaches weren't able to find jobs. Out of all the ex coaches I hated Pendry the most and was pleading for his firing since almost day one, I knew the Texans were doomed when he was named OC. Palmer was the scapegoat who was never given the line play nor the players to run his system effectively, I think he'll do good in Dallas.

Our defensive scheme just plain sucked, it seems we were trying not to lose games for four years instead of trying to win them.

Yes, but listen to what he says about the O-line, the coaches and Casserly. Basically he's telling it like it was and is. Its what a lot of us were seeing and commenting on last year. Listen and you will learn about where we are headed and what is going on and why we have chosen who we have. You will also get some insight into what we may have to do in the draft depending on whether we pick up Burl or not. He also gives some insight into the possibility of getting Burl. I found out quite a bit of information that we probably are going to find hard to come by any other way. He also told you who's putting the O-line together and that Wade doesn't fit. Others have said the same think, but he's confirming their assertions.

Wade doesn't fit and the sooner him and his cap hit are off the books and off the team, the better. He's probably been the Texans most disapointing FA for the money he makes.

Palmer needs strong direction and is why he was not a good Head coach and why he performed his best under strong coaches such as Parcells and Coughlin.

Big factor there is Parcells makes the final calls when it is tight and knows how set up an offensive line. Parcells in not a Dom Capers when it comes to offense......

For out of towners, yes, but those of us in range of SportsRadio 610 in Houston get stuff like this at least twice a week since JM spends 3 hours a week on the radio here. That review is the Readers Digest version of the Friday afternoon show.

I liked last years rookie Hodgdon, he played really well when healthy and he was the captain of his college team and is really smart. I really feel he's being overlooked in alot of discussions about the Oline.

yes, Hodgdon, thanks...and he seemed pretty good. McKinney seemed to do better at guard too and will hopefully improve playing for some old coaches.

Thats probably what was wrong in Houston, Capers made the final calls and he is just too conservative. Capers doesn't know how to manage a coaching staff, just let him run a defense. Thats probably what upsets me the most about the ex coaching staff, Capers should of stepped and took the reigns of the defense, but instead just stood by while Fangio ran it into the ground.

Capers knows football he just isn't flexible and if he's taken out of his comfort zone he is screwed, he can't make adjustments and can't think outside of the box, which is the main reason why he forced players into roles they weren't, instead of adjusting his system to fit the players he had.

Shhhhh.

I'm quoting this post rather than the other one because nobody is supposed to say that name. McClain sure won't - I think it's carry over from the Pendry era....

They are looking for a quick tackle with the physical skills to play the Denver zone blocking team. We have one, but he's the invisible man. I bet you the new coaches identify him, though.
