Huh? He'll have a whole spring to hire a staff. Odds are if he's hired he already has people in mind to hire and he'll do so. I don't get what you are driving at.

DD is not a power runner
AJ is more like TO than Plaxico except without the mouth
Carr is like a young Favre not an older Roethlisberger

I'm not trying to say they aren't alike because I want to make my arguement look better. I honestly don't see the similarities in the 3 players. Maybe you aren't seeing clearly because of your love of Capers and his Steelers imulation plan. If I were going to emulate any team it would have to be the Patriots. They do a lot more with less talent.

The only part of that which makes even the slightest bit of sense is that Staley is more (note more, because DD is a power runner more than a finesse runner or speed back) of a power runner than DD--and Capers has already said he wants to add a bigger back to play with DD. Without an explanation of why the players drafted by the Texans do not fit into a ball control offense then comparisons to the style of other players is worthless. Yeah take out Burress and put AJ or TO in and the team would fall apart because they just don't fit. And Roeth has dirty blond hair instead of black, big freakin deal. This isn't a love up Capers thing, it is a dislike of silly statements like Casserly and Capers are stupid for spending high draft picks on QB's and WR's if they want to be like the Steelers--funny, it worked for the Steelers.

Where the heck do you get that they have less talent than the Texans? Just as one example--Texans 4 1st rounders on the team two of which are rookies--Patriots 7 1st rounders including 1 rookie. Sucks being them.

Why Jeff Fisher? He is just another version of Capers. He runs a 4-3 which we do not. Would make us change 3-4 personnel in mid-stream. No to Jeff Fisher, although I DO think he is a fine coach, just not for us. Romeo Crennel, if he could be enticed to come here, has coached for, and with Belichek for so long he would make a really big difference for us. But, of course, he AIN'T gonna come here! Shoot!

so how exactly has davis been a 1000+ yd back two season's in a row without an offensive line? speed runners generally need some blocking to turn corners and for a finese runner to dart through holes, there must be holes to begin with. yes these are exagerations, but like cak said "without an explanation of why the players drafted by the Texans do not fit into a ball control offense then comparisons to the style of other players is worthless."

i'm sorry you can't see past the broken record commentaries of the talking heads when it comes to carr. not saying the comparisons between carr and favre are unfounded or wrong; but if you don't see the negligable difference between two tall, big QB's (with eqaully big arms) when comparing the steelers and texans, i think you need to take your mask off. on to the wr's, whats the point of bringing TO into this? so owens wouldn't fit in burress role in the steel city because he's too much like andre and not enough like burress? riiiiiiight.......i think all three are from the same mold and have comprable talent when just judging play on the feild.

and despite how i might come off, i do not, in fact love dom capers. i think he is doing well with a team you could say i "love", you can't argue with progress every year you had the opportunity to be a fan for. and even in the event of another 5-11 (or worse) season next year, i would like the texans managment to keep capers and co. around simply because it's becoming sickeningly obvious sports is being overrun with the "what have you done for me lately" mentality. i get heart burn at the thought of just rooting for a logo and team name than rooting for the players and coaches i get to know, and care about, as a fan.

finally, what is a better alternative to the current"emulate the steelers" plan? would you still be unhappy if we go 15-1 next season? or would more W's make you think twice about ball control and your hopes to "open up" the offense because "we have the better suited" personel? or would you like to be the colts of the future? before you answer, (if we're talking success superbowl wise) think about the post season record while the colts have had one of the most prolific offense's in league history (the last 4/5 years)......

The Texans could go 15-1 but then lose in the playoffs, and I guarantee the naysayers would be coming out of the woodwork like roaches telling others "see, I told you he couldn't take us to the Super Bowl." Then if the Texans made the Super Bowl and lost, it would be "see, I told you he couldn't win the big game." It really never ends until your last game is a W.

Since that has never been done in the long history of the NFL, you may be waiting a long time for that.

Heck, under Capers, I'd be happy with a winning season...
