my opinions: 1) chris plamer is a fine OC- he has a sharp mind. the problem is the material he was given to work with 2) david carr is, putting it mildly, not bright. but, there are lots of QBs like carr who have won super bowls, though (dilfer, rypien come to mind). 3) for capers to blame players but not himself shows how greasy he is. i've said it all along, and now hopefully it is becoming apparent. 4) speaking of greasy, the king of teflon is charlie casserly, who rode bobby beathard's coattails to a fraudulent reputation. 5) i remain the only one in here concerned mcnair refuses to spend to the cap. i think so long as the fans and, particularly, the lackeys at the chronicle feel mcnair is entitled to pocket these dollars the texans willl not be serious SB contenders. and, if this is the case, mcnair needs to go on TV in houston and tell the fans the truth about his goals. we have a typical-for-houston system of accountability here- underlings are being scapegoated for the failures of those who made all of the decisions. i wish chris palmer well- i truly do. and david carr is way down the list of problems here- he's capable of being an above-average player in this league. the texans problem is they have very few guys on their roster with even that modest upside.
