    Is this the staff to take the team to the postseason? I don't think so. Hat's off to building a great young team but I don't believe this is a winning staff. How many times last season did you scream at the tv "what are you doing..."
    The play calling left much to be desired in a few games that could have easily went in our favor.

    well i gurantee if they had ran the plays differently the way you think they should have done,. and they still didnt work you would have been screaming "what are you doing". I think Capers can take us all the way to where we want to be !

    I don't want to see draw plays on third and long when we're down late in the game. If the players mess the play up that's one thing but give them shot to make the play. Some games it seems the play calling favors Carr's abilities most other times he isn't put in the position to win. More aggressive offense is the only way to win when the defense needs help.

    Why dont you actually give them a chance after building the "good young" team as you say.... with 3 full years under thier belt.

    Remember.... we are not even into the 4th year of the 5 year plan yet.

    PATIENCE!!!!!

    The staff is good enough IMO. The better question is are the players? If you have guys who lose their matchups, a certain play is going to look bad. Everyone one gets tired of the "execute" excuse, but that's what it comes down to.

    Welcome to the board Mike. A couple of things you will quickly learn are that David Carr is a HOF QB and the coaching staff is equal to that of New England. Enjoy!

    Does anyone get tired of hearing me say, "There was a reason these coaches didn't have jobs when we started our team!"

    That's the first time I've heard it and I'm tired of it. First of all, some of the coaches were hired away from other jobs (i.e. Capers was DC in Jacksonville). Second, every coach that spends a good chunk of time in the NFL is going to get fired at some point. Show me an NFL team that doesn't have a bunch of coaches who have been fired at some point. You can cross the Patriots off the list first, since their head coach was jobless not so long ago.

    And let's not forget Capers took the Panthers to the NFC Championship in 1996...

    Didn't Chris Palmer take a Cleveland team to the playoffs?

    edit: nm.... he got axed.... but he WAS on a staff that had Belichick on it.... does that count as a pro?

    IMO some coaches make horrible head coaches but make pretty good offensive or defensive coordinators or assistants.

    That was the point of my post, some coaches make a good OC or DC but a horrible head coach.

    haha come on Texans Pride i wasnt exactly talking about you ! But maybe we should give the coaching staff the 5 year plan they promised us before we jump the gun and have to teach a new system to all our players !
