From Newsday’s Bob Glauber :

Barring a stunning turnaround, Texans coach Dom Capers will be fired at the end of the season. The bigger issue is what happens to general manager Charley Casserly. At this point, Casserly appears safe, which means he’ll be able to make the next coaching hire. But if the bottom continues to fall out, team owner Robert McNair may decide to make a clean sweep . . . If Casserly stays and the Texans wind up with the first overall draft pick, it’s believed Casserly would deal the choice to a team that is interested in USC quarterback Matt Leinart, the presumptive No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft. Casserly is convinced David Carr isn’t the problem with the Texans’ offense.

Indeed, it might be interesting to see what Carr can accomplish without spending an entire afternoon on his back.

I’m still trying to figure out how it is that the usually reliable INT-machine Jake Plummer has been playing relatively mistake free QB for Denver thus far. I’ve not signed the online petition yet demanding that Plummer grow back his mustache because I think the whole subject is terribly childish.

Well, that, and I was already working on one to get Lt. Dangle to shave his.
