    I just heard on ESPN's Cold PiZZa that Art Shell would be a top consideration for the Texans head coaching job if Capers gets the axe.
    Any thoughts...?

    Hmmmm... A Hall of Fame Offensive Tackle as the Texans next coach. Sounds interesting, but I don't think he is the right man. Wait until the offseason to pick up a young guy (Kubiak, Gray) that can relate better to today's NFL prima dona.

    I may be mistaken, but hasn't he been out of coaching for a 10 years? Not sure if he has even worked as an assistant since leaving the Raiders.

    I remember him standing on the sidelines, with his mouth hanging open, looking much like Capers. He was an Al Davis "YES" man. We have already tried this approach. Lets not try it again.

    Was a great lineman, though.

    I think they said he was working as a GM or VP or something.

    Love Art Shell but if Im correct he's been working the NFL office for quite a bit now. Not sure if he'd even want to step into such a poultry job.

    Yeah not sure this is the direction we want to go for a coach since most people here can agree that development of players has been an issue. And I do not know enough of his history to comment on him being in our front office.

    We are going to hear every name available to coach this team (except perhaps the director of FEMA...he already has a cush job) in the coming months....let the names start rolling in.

    He is the assistant VP of football operations for the NFL. He had a 56-41 record while coaching the Raiders and 3 playoff appearances in 5 seasons. And he was an assistant coach for the Chiefs and Falcons after leaving the Raiders.

    George Bush (either one) would get this team rolling

    I am aware of his success as a player and head coach. I am just syaing that being out of player development for so long is not excatly the type of persn we need to bring in.

    Yeah, he would get them rolling on a plane to Iraq. Of course that is too dangerous because then we might lose over there as well.

    Just a general question, but what's happened to Ron Wolfe? After what happened with him in Cleveland I haven't heard much about him. Any chance he might take a similar position that he was prepared to take in Cleveland here in Houston? He was always a good evaluator of talent for GB.

    I say that we just roll the armored truck up to the GM of the Pats and see if he bites.

    How about the Cowboys Sean Payton? He seems to be doing really well and he's worked under some great coaches over the years.
