Some guys are just cut out to be coordinators and some are cut out to be head coaches.. this is capers second shot and most likely his last shot to be a head coach... he like Lebeau was coaching teams that were just not talented, riddled with injuries and it takes nothing away from either one of them as talented coaches. You dont get dumber as time goes on as a coach, but if you dont have the team around you to play out your plans your not gonna succeed.

Capers would do well to take the zone blitz 34 defense to another team as a defensive coord. just like Lebeau did for us.

first off mike tice didn't suck, he had his team competeing for a playoff spot till last week and that's because of all the off the field problems, i have a lot of respect for him because he didn't let this team give up. and it wasn't his fault they traded their only star player on that team. so obviously i don't agree with him being fired, i think they should've gave him one more year cause it's not like he lost total control of this team

capers needed to be fired that team was going nowhere with him so a change is gonna be good, now they have the first pick in the draft, bush could possibly make an impact for them but won't get them over the hump, they should probably trade and draft defense in the first round, and then second and third work on the o-line, i'm not ready to give up on carr, he's still decent even without a line.

also i saw on the bottomline that mike martz was fired too, which i'm glad about that, no reason they shouldn't have a running game with that boi stephen jackson.

What I meant by for Mike Tice is that he got himself into too big of a hole that he and his team just got Killed. before they were good however had that great roadblock put up by the Steelers.
