    just wanted to start a thread where we all share our thoughts on the texans first coach.

    i liked the guy, always really professional during interviews and even when he did the show on 610. looks like a truely nice guy and best wishes go out to the guy. In a perfect world this guy would stay on as the d coordinator for the texans, kinda sad to see him go.

    From all I've ever heard from people that actually know Coach Capers he's a wonderful person to work for and a gentleman. John McClain said he's the nicest coach he's ever worked around and is always accessible to the press.

    Coach Capers has been around the league a long time and knows these jobs are here today, gone tomorrow so I imagine he'll handle anything that happens with grace and class.

    Great guy but winning football games is what sells tickets. Dom is stubborn to a fault in terms of loyalty to a system and to his buddies. Next year we will be talking about Dom the coordinator and his great defense - wherever he ends up - and wondering why it didn't work here.

    Don't you think this is a little premature. I think I'll wait until next week to see if a response is even necessary.

    Dom is a great person and there's no doubt that if this business was based on how much character you had he would be tops but in the end it's all about wins and losses. I'm not going to say goodbye yet because regardless of what the fans and media think and say he hasn't been fired yet.

    Anybody watch Cold Pizza this morning? Was listening from another room and the guy they have on every week with the "inside scoop" is saying Capers is gone, Casserly is staying, Reeves wants to stay as head coach but McNair isn't having it, supposedly wants someone else for some reason, but wants an offensive minded coach, I might not have got it all, but take it all for what it's worth...

    To take the calls as he did after the hard season is a heck of a stand-up guy, especially the calls like "what do you think of Kubiak as your replacement?"... and he took it in stride.

    A great guy, however - the team needs a strong head coach, not a true friend (if given the option between two) as noted - wins are what counts. Hopefully he realizes his limitations, and strengths, and goes back to what he did better - defense coordinator.

    Good luck Dom, if you are indeed heading out, thanks for starting up our team.

    Forget offensive minded coach, I would like to see us go after Gregg Williams from the Redskins. He is the best cadidate to become the next Bill Belichick. He is a defensive guy, but he just needs to assemble a top notch staff for the offensive side of the ball.

    Oh, why of course we will, being in such state of denial about the overabundance of overwhelming talent we have on the defensive side of the ball on this team. :rolleyes:

    I hope Parcells hires him for DC for the Cowboys. I'd like to see what he could do with Demarcus Ware.

    Dom is truly a class act but unfortunately he and everyone else on the staff is the Game Face of one of the most miserable sports seasons I can ever recall. I can't think of ever being glad when football season was over, but I quess there's a first for everything. If I was a drinking man it might be easier to handle, but since I'm not I quess I can take up snorting concrete so I can be stoned.
