This is not a very good football team. It seems to lack heart. It seems to believe it will lose, game after game. Most games, anyway. Carr, I'm very afraid, is not going to be the great one everyone hoped. I hoped. Look at Pitt and Rothlisberger. Geez, what a monster. Made for the pro game. Carr looks like a high school kid out there--lost and wishing he was anywhere else. The slightest pressure and down he goes. For three years I've watched game after game of these Texans, and I cannot now say, three years later, that they are that much better than the first few games of the first year. Maybe they are some better, I don't argue that. But not world's better. Capers seems like a fool, like a guy who is out of his depth. He may be a great organizer, maybe even a great buisness guy, but he and the other coaches have done a cruddy job when they had lots of opportunities to do otherwise. Does anyone think somebody like Parcells would be coming out after a game like today saying that the Colts are the hot team and we played them close? I guess I'm afraid Capers just doesn't get it. The name of the game is win and win now if you can. He can't and we won't. And for all the yokels who want to say we're an expansion team, or the fourth eyar is the target year, I say baloney. This team should look better, more disciplined, more accurate, more powerful, just plain better than it does not. By a long shot. Ask yourself this: Did you really believe that we were in this game with the Colts today? Did you believe that after we held the Colts to the field goal that we were going to storm back and win the game 21-20? THe answer is no. You didn't believe it. And neither did the Colts. They had so little respect for the Texans that they took it easy, got the 2nd FG, and rested comfortable knowing that if the Texans by some miracle made a TD, that the Colts could come right back and win in the last couple of minutes. As it turned out, they didn't even need that. All that said, I don't really see any repairs being made. McNair is probably making a fortune off this team, and his way is slow and steady. He's got slow in spades with Capers and Carr and he probably won't consider changes for at least another season, another disappointing season like this one, or last season. Yes maybe we've got crud for an O line, but remember, they've had 3 years to build a decent O line. And yes, when Carr gets lots of time he can throw the ball well, or pretty well, depending. And we've got a couple world class players spotted here and there. But how're you going to fix a team that seems content to stay close and hope--that's the coaching philosophy here: Stay Close & Hope. Have you ever heard of an idea like that winning regularly? No, it ain't gonna happen. To win you go out and take it away from the other guy. Period. There are no alternatives. You get aggressive and you stay aggressive. I think the best thing that could happen to this team now is a major overhaul from the top down. At a minimum you need an offensive coordinator with balls and imagination, you need a head coach who will not dictate a loser mentality to his subordinates, you need position coaches for QB, you need to draft another potential QB (not necessarily top of the draft, but somebody with a chance to replace Carr), you need O Line people, you need people with attitude. Right now this team is stinking it up out there. It's embarrassing. Something should be done.
