The Texans rank in the top 5 in offense what else do you want from the O-Coordinator ? I can understand If you were calling for the D-Coordinators job but why the O? Is the Texans offense so lame we need a new coach ? Holy smokes talk about some hard arse fans.

These 'fans" who don't like Capers' 'conservative' playcalling, want to see the entire game played like last weeks 2nd half. That's what they want to see. They want to see pass, pass, pass and deep. deep, deep. . . .

. . . and watch Carr get killed, killed, killed.

Bottle-of-bud, if you don't know what the difference is between conservative play-calling and balanced attack, that's your problem . . not Dom Capers.

RUSHING (Plays-Average Yards) 145 - 3.5

PASSING (Comp-Att-Int-Avg) 96 - 151 - 4 - 9.11

these are the stats without today's game included. so only 6 more passing plays on the year isn't balanced? i thought i heard some inappropriate laughter......

Those stats include 20 QB scrambles from Carr. Since Carr's scrambles are not called running plays, our coordinators have actually called pass 55.7% coming into today's game.

good find, and too think the already tired rehtoric on this board is we need to "open up the offense" and "run and gun"... ...how succesful was spurrier in the nfl? not to down our guys at all but i wish people would stop seeing players as victims...we would have more success if they executed on a more consistant basis......and it's really more frustrating to even type that because we're not the 0-6 'fins, we're the 3-3 texans!!

the thing i've seen the past few weeks is this...when we run the ball most of the time we're averaging only 2+ yds a carry...not counting the scrambles carr does where i think he's averaging something like 7+ yds a carry...and take today's game for example...davis isn't running well...i think today his avg was like just above 2...Well's was like 3.5 or something...personally if i was capers i would go with go with wells for the rest of the season til he shows he can't handle it...davis is having a horrible sophomore season

back to the topic...i've been one of the people beggin capers to throw it more often...mainly because you throw it to andre, armstrong, or gaffney we gain yards...lots of yards and it's fun to watch andre get rowdy on the field...but the main reason is because our runs aren't producing...if our backs not including carr were averaging 3.6 yds a carry it would be different...and for you stat savey guys out there look it up...a team that avg's 3.6 yds a carry win a lot more games than teams even with a run avg of 3.5yds...to me it seems that 3.6 is the cut off point...our backs need to find away to get to that point

I never though I could do this, but go over to the Chronicle Web site and play the preview of the Titans game by McLain. Can you believe it? He says what all of us are saying. The Texans can win the game if they don't play to conservatively and come out trying to score some points. Its really funny, when you think about it!!!!!!!!! He's actually beginning to warm up to Carr and AJ and perhaps the Texans. He still finds a lot of holes in the team, but when you compare what happened in the game to what he says you will find it interesting.

37 RUNS
26 PASSES

that's about 59% run to 41% pass... also, no trick plays, we didn't go for it on fourth down...

in many ways, it's the most conservative game we've played all season. IT seems that when the offense executes, a lot of ignorant fans call it aggressiveness. however, when the team doesn't execute, the coaches are being too conservative.

this game was the largest ratio of run/pass so far this season, by the way.

If we start using our top draft picks on defensive linemen we might be able to consider that move one day years from now.

Defensive linemen are harder to come by than linebackers. I think that's one of the reasons that a 3-4 makes sense for an expansion team.

I think we should start drafting linemen for depth right now but with the long-term goal of maybe considering changing our scheme to a 4-3 at some point down the line.

I would take this offense any day over the run-and-shoot! We need tight-ends and fullbacks!

Capers was coaching in the 3-4 before the 3-4 was popular in the league. (i know it used to be the most popular back in the day, but im saying before it reemerged)

We will stick with the 3-4 simply because we have some of the greatest minds coaching our team when it comes to the 3-4 defense.

Ya the run-n-shoot was really good at controlling the clock. Just ask Frank Reich.

First of all .... i didnt get to see the Texans sink the Titanac's this week . Therefore i cant say much about the playcalling This Week.

Forget the chuck and duck . Quarterbacks in the C&D (also known as the run & shoot) take a beating and I for one dont care to see how much Dave Ragone has improved , i like him just fine where he is ..... On The Bench.

All I would like to see from Palmer and Co. is a little more creative playcalling , not just running between the tackles and throwing to a streaking AJ or some simple play . The two plays i did hapen to catch in the highlights are examples of how to get the ball to your playmakers .... the quick passes to AJ both of which netted 13 yards and a first down , those were both basicly running plays In Space where a player like AJ can make people look Silly . More plays like those , screen passes , guards and tackels pulling on outside running plays .... more plays In Space where if the defender makes a mistake it is magnified ..... usually 6 points .

I deffinately dont want to see DC throw the ball 40+ times a game , no Tight end on the roster or anything remotely close to some silliness dreamed up by a guy named Mouse...... Mickey or otherwise.

Bottom line was we got the win. One of the reasons why was we ran the ball and controlled the clock(td drive of over 5 minutes in 4th quarter.) We would all like to see capers open up the playbook more, but in yesterdays game, the situation called for running the ball. give Jonathan Wells and the O-line credit for taking control of the game. (along with AJ for taking safe passes and abusing Samari Rolle)

I like that so much, I'm going to start using it as my signature. If I were to describe the very nature of this board in a nutshell . . this would be perfect.

Peter King's reply to the title of this tread ...

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ens/index.html

Coach of the Week

Houston coach Dom Capers. Texans have won three of four since starting 0-2, including yesterday's big win in Nashville. What a day for the Texans' defense -- four picks off Steve McNair, and Houston held him under 50 percent passing. Capers runs such a steady ship, his team never gets rattled.
