    Aahhh, that accountability thing again...I like it ALOT!

    First step to curing a problem is recognizing one.

    I like what I smell a cookin'.:stirpot:

    Great Article TC - A load of info in there on Carr and his realtionship with Kubes and CAlhoun and how much work he's putting into this next Year. Certainly bodes well that the pieces are getting in place - Carr stating nad practicing to be really accountable and learn as much as he can before the season starts!!

    Cant wait for TC to start in a few weeks!!

    You know, all of these great articles we have been reading since the new coaching staff has been brought in about what they are doing, what they plan to do, and the players, I can honestly say I do not remember reading anything like this during the 4 years of the old regime, maybe I am wrong.

    This almost feels as good as when Glanville took over for Hugh Campbell and brought in that offensive juggernaut June Jones.

    On John McClains SR 610 interview with Warren Moon yesterday, Moon said that he invited Jones but not Glanville to his HOF ceremony in Canton next month.

    If I had a nickel for every time I heard "Glanville, that little ***hole" when I asked a writer or ex-coach about Jerry, I would be rich. Although, he and June somehow still manage to make it work. I don't think Jerry has many friends.

    Caper's never included the fan in on 'anything.' Remember, his post game comments were limited to the word 'execute' and any derivitive of the word. IMO, Caper's had a problem in knowing what the team needed to do and coaching them to do it. He would say things like, 'we need to score early and often'-we need to open up the offense'-'we need to be more aggressive,etc.' But, for whatever reason, each week's game plan were virtually all the same and 'adjustment' was a 'foreign' word to Capers....as was 'communication' with the fans.

    Another good'un Texans Chick, ty.
    Well I've been defending the guy for four years. I see it there. Waiting to come out. If these two can't do it. I was wrong. I'm excited too, but that opening schedule is brutal. At least we've got a decent by bye this year. :bowser:

    I could handle being disappointed by making the playoffs 6 or 7 years in a row!!! And the "chuck-n-duck" WAS fun to watch in the 1st 3 quarters.

    Here's a good article about Glanville and the House of Pain and why it was not good.
    ( Glanville was only around for the first three )

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/3358470.html

    Sucking in the 80's. Glanville might have pulled off a few wins here and there, but he turned us into a buncha thugs. It was Pardee that lit the jets for the Oilers after Glanville got the cursed "hug of death". Of course it helped getting rid of Glanville's handler Herzeg too. From 1990-1993 Pardee and Houston had one of the best offenses in the NFL ( if not the best ). However as we all know... only Texas A&M could graduate a product that blows a 35-3 lead in a post season professional football game.

    supposedly he is a changed man now though... not that I care all that much.

    Not saying I wanted Glanville back, but we DID go to the payoffs 7 years in a row. The Steel Curtain played like a bunch of thugs, too, but they won Super Bowls. I'm not advocating cheapshots or anything like them, but remember...Denver's OL is considered cheapshot artists because of the cut blocks.
