Default Great stat from Jerome Soloman

I know some of yall don't like his work, but he put a great stat in his piece.

"The Texans have gone from the bad old days under Dom Capers, when they were 5-7 after 12 games (in 2003 and 2004), to today, when after 12 games they are, um, 5-7. As they were last year. And the year before that. And the year before that."

That tells us a lot. Take the 2 win season out. But the 2 years previously, Capers had the team to 5-7 after 12 games in 2003 and 2004. Those teams ended with records of 5-11 and 7-9 respectively. In 2008/2009 they finished 8-8 and 9-7 respectively, and this year looks like another 7-9 season.

JS makes the point that we have basically not improved and that whatever wins we have are at the end of the season. The fact that we are winning late, tells me the players still play for the coach. BUT, it also means we are winning essentially meaningless games. This was a prime year to take the division. The Colts are down, the Titans are in shambles, and the Jags are beatable. In addition, our D let us down in 4 games that we should have won. We should be a 9 win team right now thinking about not the playoffs, not the division title, but a potential first round bye.

That right there tells me its time for Gary to go. We need a real head coach and not a glorified offensive coordinator.

The current Texans team would beat the 7-9 Capers' Texans 99 times out of 100.

That doesn't mean Kubiak should stay but it's true.

You are probably right. Those Capers teams weren't as good as this team is.

That said, the defenses were a bit better.

Could David Carr have a good day against this secondary?

The question is.....could our secondary hold down a younger Andre Johnson? I think Capers' Texans would do a little better than some might think.

A bit would be accurate. The only year the D was even decent under Capers was 2002.

No. HWWNBN would have 8 sacks and 3 picks. Half the sacks would be running out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage. Schaub, AJ and Foster would make it look like pitch and catch on the way to a 52 point game. The current Texans haven't arrived but they are miles ahead of that team.
