I dont think you could hurt our 2-14 team anymore than they hurt themselves last season, but so far with the moves that have been made in FA can only be seen as positive steps for this franchise...not to mention the draft being a few weeks away will add a host of new potential starting talents to our roster to add competition and hopefully some upgraded talent/or some talented depth to help this team in the long run as well as the short term (upcoming season).

Hah! Kubiak's inexperience is already showing. He should be concentrating completely and totally on the offensive line and defense, but instead he's messing with areas that weren't even a problem to begin with -- such as WR, QB, TE and FB. I would have had a lot more respect for him if he would have focused on what the real problems are, but instead he's acting like this is a fantasy football team. So, because of the way he is focusing on the guys who handle the ball instead of where the games are really won and lost, the whole idea of this team being a consistent, competitive team has become a fantasy. This team won't go anywhere under Kubiak and after his tenure (hopefully it will come to an end sooner rather than later), everybody will be looking back fondly on the days Capers was here.

even then, we HAVE addressed all the important areas that u mentioned, defense and o-line. how the heck is TE not important a priority to you?? u think joppru can be healthy enough. the guy is totally raw and he would have to work himself back into playing shape. o yeah i think marcellus rivers is the answer (jk of course) o yeah last i checked, kubes wasnt addressing the QB situation.

Kubiak will get his first Super Bowl ring as a Head Coach in a Texans shirt.

Hey Dom, shouldn't you be looking at game tape or something?

WR, QB and TE have been a problem on this team for a while, in case you haven't noticed.

The offensive line and defense have been addressed as much as any other area. You're coaching staff was more of a problem than the personnel. Now go run some other team into the ground.

You obviously need to be watching some game film yourself. TE has never been a problem for this team -- they have used the TE to stay in and block because the real problem for this team, the OL, needed and still needs help. WR has not been a problem because the WRs they've had haven't even been able to run their routes before Carr gets sacked due to the OL play. And Carr has been just fine. The OL hasn't been addressed at all except for Flanagan. It's basically the same guys they had last year. Same wit the defense. Now go watch your game film and catch up.

How can you say they have addressed the defense and OL? It's basically the same group of folks that were out there last year! And until they fix the OL problem, the LAST thing they need is a pass catching TE when the TE needs to be back there helping protect Carr. And you better check again. Kubiak went out for some reason and got Rosenfelds -- as though Tony Banks and Dave Ragone weren't better than he was anyway.

There is nothing wrong with taking off cheerleading skirts, putting down pom poms and assessing the situation for what it is rather than look at the thing through rose-colored glasses and engaging in wishful thinking.

Bobo is right, we shouldn't have brought in an offensive minded coach to head up the Texans since we were doing so well with our previous defensive minded coach in the past. The players were all on board with the previous game planing and you could tell the confidence just brimming over the top from the moment they stepped on the field. Heck, you could just read the excitment on the boards from the way the Texans were playing - amazing strategy was used.... especially to move players into positions they weren't suited to play or have had very little previouse experience at. Capers was a master with his experience of the offensive line. </sarcasm>

Bobo, you oughta inform the class on what players you would've brought in for the offensive line, or how you would've focused strictly on that, in case the naive Kubiak or Sherman read these boards.

By the way, Texans#1 - back to your post, I think he's gonna help the Texans. May not be an immediate impact, but at least there's optimism (mostly) on these boards which we haven't seen in a while. Going after players that were apprantly at the tops of his list, and acquiring most, shows that he's getting some veterans in here for the immediate band-aid while he works in the newer players a little at a time. It appears he's working this correctly for the long haul

Yeah, it's the same basic line, minus the new center, McKinney moving to LG, draft pick(s) and a brand new scheme.

Anyways, some fans live to be bitter. They'd rather have years of sucking to gripe about instead of a SB win. I can see it now, if the Texans get on the cusp of making the playoffs then the gripes will turn from 'this team led by its inexperienced coaching staff will only win 3 games if they're lucky' to 'their ineptitude cost them a playoff berth'...and so on.

Go pickup a 12 pack of the Beast at the local quickie mart and get hammered if life is that horrible.

Not sure, but since his name is on it he better manage this team to four wins next year.

Your attempt at sarcasm would come off a little bit better if you were more accurate about what I said. I never griped about him being offensive or defensive minded. I did say he wasn't right for the job, but this offensive minded stuff came from your mind, not mind. And let me point out to you once again that Capers had a fine record with this team of rejects and raw rookies. Every single year, he led this team way above its talent level until last year, when he had a bad year -- as if Cowher and Holmgren never had one of those. And to say that Capers lost the team is not true. I was there when the Texans were down by a bunch at halftime vs. KC and they came out all fired up for the second half. When you can keep a team into the game in that circumstance, it certainly is not true to say he lost the team. And to criticize Capers for moving players around is laughable. At the time, people were demanding he make changes. So he makes changes, and people criticize him for making those alterations! Plus, talk to Bill Bellicik about how he uses Troy Brown. As for the OL, I have said many times that the Texans need to use most of their draft on the OL and defense and see which guys pan out. Wasting capital on backup QBs, pass-catching TEs, RBs and old WRs is just that -- a waste of investment and a waste of time. If Kubiak or Sherman are reading this, as you imply, then listen up: "This isn't fantasy football. It's the NFL where line play rules. So stop playing games with positions you are already strong in and start getting bodies that can move people around." Or maybe you could deliver that message for me. Thanks.
