    That's not true. Everything I have read is that there is a "possibility" of him calling the plays in the "near future". Also, a rumor out there that he called the plays on the last drive yesterday. Nothing formal on this as of yet.

    No fricken way! Palmer was fired for a reason!
    I agree with you about not hiring Palmer, that would be the same or worse than having Looney.

    But I think that Palmer is a scapegoat, a sacrifice to surpess the locals for a few more weeks. When people start leaving the game EARLY, like they did at Reliant, Owners and GMs get worried. The head coach will be next if they don't make .500 this year. The people need to have hope and not give up their season tickets, the way to do that is to fire people.

    It has been different in MN. We have had stars to hang our hat on during our last 4 seasons to keep the fans interested. In Houston, there isn't a star on this team, Carr...NO, A.Johnson....NO, and Davis....NO.

    Daunte is our only STAR right now and if he goes mediocre on us, things will get nasty.

    He was the scapegoat for Cleveland when the came back here. I felt bad for him. Its as if he was set-up for faliure.

    He could be bad, I don't know, but it is not going to save the Texans by firing him.

    ....and what happened on the last drive? We scored didn't we? :shock: I have been saying this since halftime of the Bengals game in the live chat. TICE SHOULD CALL THE PLAYS. It worked for GB last year. Who says it won't work for us?
