IMO, this win was the result of Texans players understanding that this game and the 49ers game was/will be the only real chances for us to come away with a win or two. I think this year's group of players is tired of this team's coaching staff and their lame system, and they basically rallied this weekend to at least keep us from going 0-16. You look at the Raiders two years ago when there was a very ugly and very public mutiny against Callahan, and the players made life a living you-know-what for the coaching staff in the media every weekend on the field and even during the week leading up to games, and you contrast it with the way these Texans players have handled a similar situation, and you have to be proud of our guys. For the most part, these players have buttoned their lips about this team's coaching philosophy and they are just going to let Capers & Co. get what's coming at the end of this season. They are playing for themselves and for us, not for their coaching staff. When a guy like Seth Payne speaks up and basically jolts the team into realizing that they play for us and not for the coaches (even though that's probably not what he said in these sorts of terms that I am) you can tell that this past game against the Browns was one that we were going ot win no matter what. Simmons puts his hat right on the ball and knocks it loose. Carr and Gaffney hook up for a nice pass/catch. Mathis blows the doors off the Browns' special teams unit to set up the clutch Kris Brown field goal, and even P-Burnt found a way to not mess it up. To me, this team's players are just like us: They want to get a new staff in here who will not play-it-close-to-the-fourth-quarter-so-we-have-a-chance-to-win-it-in-the-end type of game planning and play calling. They are hungry for the same thing we are: A coaching staff that will let Carr make more decisions, let other guys more deserving than Bradford get a shot at the starting WR spot, and a staff who can play this team to its strengths each and every week. I sense the end of the Capers era, even if it is at the end of this season and not as soon as I would like it to be (like, tomorrow for instance). And I see a classy group of players in the midst of what is a difficult situation, and I see this group of players taking the high road thorugh it all and knowing that soon their chance will come to shine. We all wanted the playoffs this year, and I know the Astros proved that it can be done (and it might still happen if the planets align just right)...but you have to think that maybe this sort of season will serve a better purpose for us in the near future (next season) than had we done well enough to squeek into the playoffs and lose, thus giving Capers more years as HC around here. Thanks, Texans players, for giving it all you've got and for making the best of a bad situation. And thanks for being the class of the NFL while doing it.
