    Why is Fangio's job safe? Again, his unit got zero sacks and zero pressure on the QB of one of the worst teams in the NFL. The defense is now almost as bad as the offense. Why is no one mentioning that his job should be in jeopardy?

    I have said all of them and that includes him. If you look at the start of every game the other team takes possession for most of the 1st qtr. Our defense stops nothing and puts immediate pressure on our offense to score when they get the ball because they are already behind. ALL of the COACHES need to go TOMORROW.....

    The one exception would be if they went TODAY.....................

    Agreed!

    I've been talking about it since game one....OF THE PRE SEASON......

    No pressure on the QB
    Can't stop the pass to save a life
    Let's the oppenents team run 9:00 of the clock
    ZERO turnovers...

    Fangio needs to go

    I'm not sure I've ever seen a defense this passive. And it causes them to wear themselves out, because they're on the field for really long drives. I would think it would be in the players self-interest to be more aggressive, so I definitely blame the coaching.

    If Capers goes, pretty much his entire coaching staff will go with him I would assume.

    At this point I think we should fire Fangio now and promote Hoke to DC and see what we have with him. It will put more heat on Capers and send a message to the rest of the coaching staff.

    Hopefully tomorrow, after Capers watches the film and analizes things. :homer:

    Maybe Capers will resign after firing Fangi-must-go!

    I imagine the coaching staff will be replaced at the end of the season. You fire them all now, who will coach them the rest of the season? There are still 12 games to go - really 5 to offically make it a losing season - to validate the firing. Charley will have to go as well.

    John Hoke's name keeps coming up for HC. Why?? Isn't he the backs coach? What have they done? Intercept?? I don't see where they are any better than any other position, so I ask, Why will Hoke be the savior???

    Agreed. Duanta makes Hoke look good. How poor is your defense when a six round round rookie is your starting saftey?

    We still have 12 more games to lose so we can draft a left tackle. so dont fire anyone yet, we still have to be worse than the cards and niner's. Thats our left tackle dag gum it, we've earned it.

    Unless there is a good 'tweener' linebacker three year project we can draft instead.

    That's the best argument I've heard for firing him, and there's a lot of 'em.

    The starting 6th rounder is actually one of the few good things we've done recently, it's not just a sign our D is weak. Of course if it wasn't for the injury I doubt our staff would have picked him out to start.

    If we draft an LT, that's not a panacea. If we had an LT right now who gave up 0 sacks for the year, we'd still have about 75 sacks at this pace.

    Upon further consideration, the other team would just move their best rusher to the other side and have him abuse Wade.

    Houston, again.
    YUP, Wade is just as much a turnstyle as the LT one. Both are pretty good run blockers, but couldn't block my wife on a pass rush. Both seem VERY slow a foot.

    Thats where firing the GM and head coach before the draft is crucial. To be honest, the Texans would have a hard time drawing flies, much less top free agents to Houston without a new coaching staff. Capers and Casserly are fired after the last day of the season. Thats if they don't quit. If the Texans are lucky they trade away the tops overall pick for an experienced yet youthful LT (I really don't want Dave to go through another rookie LT). Otherwise they trade down a couple spots for an extra second and still get their man.

    Does Fangio get fired on Monday? How does he continue to get a pass for this pathetic defense?

    I am glad I looked around at these threads because this idea was my main reason for coming to the board right now.

    Arguably Fangio's defense is at least as bad as Palmers offense was. Fangio is still here and Palmer is long gone. Obviously firing Palmer did the trick right? We only gave up what? 42 points and 459 yards tonight?

    Yeah, Vic is getting the job done.
