    Could this happen to Capers?

    We could plummet to 32nd in the league under his control...hope not...but it won't surprise me in the least.

    I guess that was in 2001.. but main sticking point was the defense..

    owner says the defense is too complicated.. yet Mora said they need more talent on the defense ?


    I wonder what the texans problem is? Youth ? complication? i<insert own excuse here >

    They seem to have the talent. They've just lost their edge. The attitude that defenses need to dominate opposing teams. It's leadership, or lack of it. We've lost three starters last year, and I never really bought into Sharper and Glenn being "too slow" for us. They were leaders, and that quality cannot be measured against mere physical stats.

    Whenever we're on D, we just look simple. Not a lot of movement, no fake blitzes, just a lack of a sense of urgency. It's like they are playing not to get hurt (except D.Rob. That dude is nuts!)

    I remember the "too complex for the players" reason wanting to get rid of Fangio in Indy. That definitely does NOT seem to be the problem with the Texans.
