These items are being brought up on various threads, so I though I'd centralize them. Is it talent or coaching or front office? I think you have to look at all three. This team has many holes, some of them the same since the new coaching staff got here. No RB, a mediocre at best o-line, bad DBs, no pass rush. Haven't we heard this before? Why hasn't the coaching staff/front office been able to improve such chronically bad areas? They are the professionals at this, and if they are as error free as many think these weaknesses wouldn't still be there. We have a lot of players on the field that wouldn't be starting anywhere else. If you blame it all on talent though, then Capers and crowd should still be here because they didn't have any talent either. ===================================== The players shoulder a lot of blame too. I don't see a lot of leadership, and many players should be playing better than they do. For instance, someone like Schaub should be able to see defenders between him and the receiver. The o-line should look like they have some concept of playing as a unit too, and I don't see that for stretches. ===================================== A lot of people took offense at the Texans over/under of 7.5 games or whatever it was. I posted at the time I thought it was reasonable and it looks like it might be. If everything breaks right, this team's record could match the best of the Capers/Carr years!
