    I wouldn't mind Jeff Fisher if Bud decided that was enough of him.

    Pat Hill "Anywhere, Anytime, Anyplace" We need an attitude like that. Might jell well with our QB.

    Zombie Vince Lombardi gets my vote.

    Seriously my "wish" pick is Jimmy Johnson but bigTEXan8 is almost correct when he says it's not going to be. I disagree but I think it's extremely unlikely that we get him as opposed to "flat out not gonna happen" I never believe a coach when he says that he's not interested in coaching. John Madden is the exception, not the rule. If JJ won't come here it's probably not because he's too comfortable on his boat and working in the studio. It's because he doesn't want the Texans job, simple as that.

    It could also mean that Bob McNair hadn't asked him which is something a lot of us (myself included) seem to overlook. Bob just may not want Jimmy Johnson here. He may like him, think he's a nice guy and a good coach, and he may just think he's not a good fit here.

    Plus if Dom is gone but Casserly survives then Charlie will have input on the hiring process (I'm sure) and he won't want someone like Jimmy Johnson getting into a position that could lead to Casserly going out the door. The power struggle angle has to be considered.

    My realistic choice for head coach is... I just don't know. I have some criteria at this point but no candidates. I know that if they pick a former NFL head coach I think the words "proven winner" need to be involved. A "proven loser" we already have. I also think that if they can't find someone who's done it and who they feel good about then I want them to disregard retreads and look to younger assistants around the league.

    Jerry Gray (DC - Buffalo)
    Monte Kiffin (DC - Tampa Bay)

    We might as well can the coaching staff today. What more can they do to drive this team into the ground.

    Surely this is the last straw for Capers and staff. I cannot possibly see them having a job tomorrow morning.

    Maybe Mike Singletary can bring these guys to glory because he can't do any worse.

    I agree, If capers and the entire staff are not fired immediately, the owner is stupid. I think if I was the owner, I would fire the entire team, they all suck. They should all return their paychecks for the entire year, they sure do not deserve them. Noone but the Texans could loose a game like that. Sad, real Sad.

    I like Gray, but I don't think they will go with another defensive minded coach after the lack luster performance of the offfense this season.

    Ive been a fan of Gary Kubiak for quite a while. If he is good enough for John Elway to listen to.......

    "Obviously we're disappointed with the way the game turned out," head coach Dom Capers said. "We just did not execute at crunch time.

    My God. Please fire Capers now.

    Anyone watching Fox this morining heard it. When asked to JJ who he taught would end up with the first pick (Reggie Bush) he replied Houston. When asked who would end up with Bush on their team he did not mention Houston. One has to wonder, if JJ comes to Houston he plans to not have Bush on this team and he did mention other teams trading to move up for Bush. I like the man already..
