    Hey Folks.. I am hearing a huge yelling at fire this and that. At what point this year do we feel we should consider the following (and, no, right now is not an answer.) One game (no matter how bad it was) should dictate the year. Where do you judge we should keep/fire/bench people? Overall total based on our 16 games.

    Carr - QB rating / Wins / Interceptions
    DD - Yards? / Fumbles
    Steve McK - Sacks Allowed?
    Victory R - Sacks Allowed?
    Chester P - Sacks Allowed?
    Zach W. - Sacks Allowed?
    Todd W - Sacks Allowed?
    Gary W - Tackles / sacks
    Seth Payne - Tackles /sacks
    Roberte S - Tackles / sacks
    Babin - tackles / sacks / int
    Peek - tackles / sacks / int
    Wong - Tackles / Sacks / Int
    Greenwood - Tackles / Sacks / Int
    Phillip B - Tackles / Sacks / Int / Pass Def
    Palmer

    It's not just one game we are upset with.

    It's the attitude and mentality this team is playing with.

    Like it is ok to just show up.

    No pride.

    No fight.

    I didnt get to watch my texans play since i was in the ocean doing a little deep sea fishing...but I am glad I didnt. The boat I was on had xm radio but all we could get was espn radio and they just gave score updates....by the sounds of how this game went/how this team played....Im am thankful I didnt see it....5 turnovers?? I thought they said five turnovers committed in the whole game by both teams combined....but 5 turnovers....thats just ridiculous...I have a feeling its going to be a long season....and yes aftger this year there should be some people getting dismissed and some people gettting benched....I cant even begin to fathom a passer rating of a whopping 12...are you kidding me??

    Carr - Bench him for Ragone. I'm NOT kidding. Even if it's for one series, one quarter, or one game...hopefully it will send the message that there's no Free Ride. The picks weren't the line's fault, the ****** underthrow wasn't the O-Line's fault, the dump to DD w/o looking at ANY other options has only ONE blame.

    Reasoning - Poor decision-making, bad throws, inability to follow progressions.

    Low - Next Game
    High - Two more performances as BAD as that one

    should be relieved of duty if we are not 3-5 at midseason.

    Unfortunately for him, our schedule starts very tough and most of the winnable games are at the end. He may not get a chance to get the ship righted.

    I think 6 wins or less definitely gets him the gate. 7 wins - probably gets him fired too, unless there are extenuating circumstances (key injuries). 8 wins probably keeps him here, and 9 or more definitely keep him here.

    And YES, preseason figures into this. It IS important, we STUNK, and the performance today did not surprise me. That's why I would show Capers the door after 8 games.

    I really feel his job lies in the hands of the O-LINE. And it does not look good right now....
