    Houston, again.
    IIRC, Dom is well thought of in steeltown due to his defenses. I wonder if they know he has had a couple of HC gigs that haven't gone to well since he left there?

    Yeah, they have to be conflicted in Steelernation about Capers. On one hand he is one of the co-creators of the version of the 3-4 defense they run and on the other hand he sucks as a head coach. Would he be different for the Steelers?

    Not that I believe this but if it is true that's great news for Browns fans.

    I actually think this would be a good fit. If he's willing to relinquish control to an offensive coordinator, Dom is great at running a 3-4 with the proper defensive players. The defensive pieces are pretty much in place in Pittsburgh, so he would be able to let the draft and FA work for the offense.


    Then again...he is Dom Capers. :stirpot:

    I wonder if we can get him to trade us Faneca, Polomulu, and Ward for a couple late round draft picks?

    Anyone think Capers takes the head coach job at Miami since Saban left and their Defense was pretty good this year?

    Yea that's exactly what I was thinking. With Saban leaving Capers might just step up....wrong choice of words...how about step into that position.
