Wow. The Houston Texans have fired offensive coordinator Chris Palmer after only two games. Offensive line coach Joe Pendry (who himself was once fired as Dom Capers' offensive coordinator) moves up to take his place. When was the last time a team fired a coordinator only two weeks into the season?
It's stunning, really, how far Chris Palmer has fallen. I remember when he took over the Cleveland Browns and football commentators fell all over themselves to proclaim him the best offensive mind in the game. Now he's out of work. Will another team pick him up as some kind of special assistant? Brian Billick could use another coach on his staff right about now.

Our offseason Four Downs series ends with a look at the NFC West's biggest remaining holes and their most notable UDFA signings. The Rams and 49ers have to kick-start their passing games, Arizona's offense lacks a big dimension, and the Seahawks continue to rely on Russell Wilson's magic tricks.
