McClain was the second person to ask a question, so what do you mean so far... I think it was a decent question, since it is what we've been talking about since the Rose Bowl.

Kubiak has made one thing clear.... he is commited to helping David Carr find success on this team...

Maybe we'll make him a reciever, or a corner.......... :)

I won't say unequivocal, but Kubiak just gave Carr a very, very strong endorsement. All you UT-VY types probably should get used to the idea
of your guy playing in the NFL at a location somewhere east or northeast of the state of Texas.

01-26-2006, 12:39 PM
Kubiak did make it very obvious on the number#1 pick, atleast to me. Reggie Bush. Now that could change but from the interview, that's what I got out of it. When talking with Rich and David a second ago, he compared David Carr to Jake Plummer and that he really likes Carr. He also said he's going to turn him loose and be more aggressive in a phases of the game. It should be fun.

McNair--"It is much more complicated than just who do you want as QB, Vincy Young or David Carr and the fans will come to realize that." This in response to one of the 610 am guys asking about the ground swell of local support for Vince Young.

Now the question is whether TN likes Cutler or Leinart better than Young.

Nawzer
01-26-2006, 12:52 PM
Mr.McNair just said that he wants to win a championship as quickly as possible. And that probably rules out Vince Young as a Texan. A lot can happen between now and then so we'll have to wait and see. Also, he said that they might trade the pick, but I think it's going to be Reggie Bush in a Texans uniform next year. Time to go watch those Bush highlights!

DRAMA
01-26-2006, 12:54 PM
My goodness!! I thought Kubes was high on Carr!!!

McNair almost sounded like he injected himself with the David Carr drug. WOW! When asked about Vince Young, he said he was happy for Vince and Texas but 'we need to be a stronger team and it needs to be as quick as possible.' He then stopped and reiterated the fact that we need to win AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

Interesting..but he went ABOVE AND BEYOND gushing over David Carr.

I think that you can only answer the same question over and over so many times. I'm unable to hear it, but I'm guessing if he isn't addressing it anymore, then he's tired of discussing it. Reminds me of President Bush's statement this morning.

He didn't say "we aren't taking Vince Young" but he might as well have. If you heard the interview there is NO DOUBT.

1. He LOVES David Carr. Thinks he is an amazing talent. No doubt they aren't going to keep him.

2. He made the point that I and others have mentioned on these forums. And that is...If nothing else the playoffs showed us that just about EVERY single Probowl QB looked like a total chump when their team couldn't protect them. Peyton didn't look good under pressure, Brady didn't look good under pressure.That is the reality of football. If the QB isn't protected, he WILL look bad.

3. He wants to win right away. That means no Vince.

4. He certainly is willing to trade down if the deal is right. (of course the "right deal" might be a HUGE asking price.

anyone else who heard it feel free to add.

Glacier
01-26-2006, 01:05 PM
well, outside of Texas, the concensus first over all pick in the draft is Reggie Bush.

That said, by making it seem as if the Texans are SOLD on taking bush, they might be able to push up the value of the pick. They have more leverage playing the Bush card IF their intent is to trade down.

That should be no surprise. They've been saying all along that they were exercising Carr's option. However, many here on the board chose to hear that as we'll sign and trade Carr, or have Young as his understudy, or that they are just blowing smoke.

Trust me, on his own time he's been looking at tape...not legally perhaps but none the less he's been looking.

In the same interview he said that if they had a great offer from another team that they would consider trading the pick.

I agree that he did sound pretty high on David Carr, but as another poster said there are still 3 months to go and a lot can happen.

Shoot, after he watches a little more tape of our defense he might decide that trading the pick is the ONLY option!

whiskeyrbl
01-26-2006, 01:17 PM
I agree that it is obvious we are stickimg with Carr.Now on the Drafts #1 pick,i think McNair tipped his hand that VY is not in our future,But as to what we will do i got two different feelings depending on who actully has the last word.Kubes made it sound as he will use the pick to get a playmaker when he said "Whoever we take with the first pick will be for the best of the team",then McNair said later that if the terms were right they could possibly trade down.

tulexan
01-26-2006, 01:19 PM
He and Charley have always been saying that they would be willing to trade the pick if they were offered the right deal. But they aren't going to give it away. It will have to be an offer they can't refuse. I don't think they are going to get that offer. The teams that might trade up to get Reggie Bush have just as many holes that we do and the draft is loaded with good RB's this year. The Jets could stay where they are and pick LenDale White or DeAngelo Williams if they are desperate for a top echelon RB. Or they could draft someone else in the first round and then take Calhoun, Drew, or Norwood in the second round.

I think McNair and Kubiak made it as clear as they possibly could without saying it out right that the Texans will not be drafting Vince Young. I think this is to prepare the masses 3 months ahead of the draft so it won't be such a shock. I hope we trade down.

well, i do have to admit it is disappointing that the Texans Staff will continue wtih Carr and not draft Leinhart or Young, though, I'm sure the Carr loyalists will be happy to hear that.

the good news about the decision to not take Young is, now there will be quite a bit less interest in The Texans thus allow the Houstonian Haters their message boards back.

Unfortunately for you Texans, This Cowboys fan will still be frequenting these message boards for a while longer. I'm still interested in what Kubiak, as a coach, will do. See, more often than not, I am a fan of coaches over players. I like the strategy aspect of football, perhaps moreso as time goes on and the talent gaps between NFL teams closes. More and more parity is a reality in the NFL and good coaching becomes most important to winning.

That is not to say that I do not have players who I cheer for despite their team. Vince Young will be one of those players. Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Larry Allen, Marshall Faulk, Earl Campbell, Warren Moon, Emmitt Smith and Jay Novacheck were amoung my other favorate players in the past. (notice a little Cowboys and Oilers bias there)

Will Kubiak be considered a "Wizard" like Bilichick? Will he salvage Carr's career? Will he be shown the door for betting his caeer on Carr? Will Reggie Bush come to the Texans?

There is still reason to be interested in the Texans as a Texas Football Fan, though admittedly so, quite a lot less buzz.

As far as coaches go, my faves at the moment are Parcells, Bilichick, Shannahan, Chucky and Denny Green. I am GREATLY interested in what Kubiak will be able to do in Texas.

Well, I can't honestly say that I am a Texans fan. In the past, the Oilers had guys that you cheered for and you wanted to see do well. Individual players that elevated the team as a whole like, Moon or Campbell....

The only guy I can honestly say that I cheer for and REALLY dig on the Texans team right now is Dominack Davis. (never was much of a Carr enthusist).

I'm hope the Texans do well and end up with that "franchise player" who will give the team an identity and soon, whether it is Bush or Carr.

that said, other than the speculation and the buzz that has surrounded the franchise lately, there really hasn't been much reason to be excited or interested in the Texans if you are not a native houstonian or from the houston area.

it would be nice if the hype and interest continued and maybe it will with Kubiak here turning things around.

Remember teh ESPN commercials that siad "Without sports, this would be disgusting" and if had the couple muggin down on teh coach. One was wearing a Michigan shirt teh other an Ohio State shirt?

Change that to a Cowboy shirt and a Texan shirt, and you know what? It's still disgusting.

Don't sweat it dude. This rep system is so high school and alot of us either mock it (like I did when I was ridin' the pine) or ignore it.

You and your wife sound like me and my hubby. We have 5 kids too and I am fixed. Good thing too, this kind of news could cause triplets. :yahoo:
We joke like that all the time at my house. You're OK in my book. :)
Thanks Filo, you would think after what posters have been through on this board there would be a little thicker skin covering them than that. Heck someone made a joke about my son and his Texans coat and I didn't respond like that. Just figured he didn't have kids so he wouldn't know what I was talking about anyway.

If so many of you are convinced VY is not going to be the pick, could this be subterfuge to increase Carr's value in a trade? I just can not understand why the Texans would even hint at what they were thinking of doing. Casserly has always played it close.

Well one plausible explanation is the Texans, particularly McNair and Kubiack, are throroughly comfortable with Carr and part of the process of rehabilitating him is showing confidence in him.

I actually tend to think of it more along the lines, as others have stated, of them trying to break it to the public gradually and gently.

Well you must really despise me then. I'm a huge fan of both teams.

Kubiak is a great coach. I'm gonna be sorry if Vince is not gonna be the pick but that's what the tone seems to be. If he goes to the Titans it's gonna be fun around here. Well more fun than usual.

This could always be the case in the world of the NFL, especially when the "riverboat gambler" is involved.

Good point. I just do not think Carr is shell shocked. I think he will be as excited by the coaching change as are we.

I myself find it rather fun to joke at the expense of a Cowboy fan or a Bronco fan. It's nothing personal, just good fanmanship. Now if I liked both teams it sure wouldn't be fun especially when it comes to training my kids who the REAL teams are.:) :) :)

I won't say unequivocal, but Kubiak just gave Carr a very, very strong endorsement. All you UT-VY types probably should get used to the idea
of your guy playing in the NFL at a location somewhere east or northeast of the state of Texas.

Not sure what his name means, but I have hear people using the phrase PEBCAK in the tech support field when fielding questions.. A PEBCAK error means Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard..

I have wondered if infantry's name had something along those lines (not saying Infantry is a Pebcak) :spy:

Infantry just refers to having been an 11 bravo--infantryman in the Army and cak are my initials. Someone who never posted on the MB to my knowledge had taken infantry.

From all I've read and heard New Orleans is expected to take Leinart.....which leaves the Titans to take Vince and I cannot recollect where I saw it but I saw a quote by Coach Fisher and he was very pro-Vince and I know Vince is friends with McNair and so on and so forth.

Of course changes could happen with a trade but it'd certainly be great message board fodder for Vince to become a Titan.

I won't go on...it's too painful to think about.

I'm not surprised. McNAir said a long time ago what ever it costs to get a good coaching staff.:)

They keep throwing in Rome clips on top of McNair speaking.

Sounds really professional...NOT! Pretty lame, IMO. Typical for 610, though.

Anyone have access to an entire transcript of the press conference? I didn't get to hear any of it.

It certainly seems like we're sticking with David Carr but like I said on the other thread, a lot can change between now and April 29th. I don't think Gary Kubiak can make a honest judgement until he's seen tapes of VY and David Carr.

Now let me ask you this. Are you going to look at the tapes of DC being chased around the field, having the krap kicked out of him? Are you going to watch the tapes of VY playing against a bunch of lousy D's and having all day to pass without a care in the world? You can't make an honest judgement by looking at those tapes. In respect to college and professional football, VY was in the best possible situation. DC is the exact opposite. No way you can make an honest depiction/judgement using those tapes, or any tapes for that matter. JMO.

Well, I can't honestly say that I am a Texans fan....


I think you should have stopped there as it begs the question - Why exactly are you here posting on the Texans board since your "Not" a fan... :confused:


that said, other than the speculation and the buzz that has surrounded the franchise lately, there really hasn't been much reason to be excited or interested in the Texans if you are not a native houstonian or from the houston area.

it would be nice if the hype and interest continued and maybe it will with Kubiak here turning things around.

Believe it or not - there are Texan fans outside of the state. I know several including friends of mine in Canada and Ohio.

As for being excited about the team - I guess having Pro-bowl players and performances are not Note,Hype and Cheer worthy to you? I guess we should just trade Andre Johnson, Domanick Davis, Gary Walker, Dunta Robinson and Jerome Mathis because there performances are not worth cheering for?

You must really hate this team then eh???

Believe it or not up until this past year the fervor and excitement about the team was pretty high along with expecatations for the team including DC. Everyone pretty much league wide thought we were going to make the next step and go to the playoffs this past year - But honestly I fault Management/Coaching for most of that and for dragging the Texans down with them this year. I would say the "Hype" your talking about picked back up from last year and beyond because of our draft status. Had the team actualy improved upon last years record like was predicted for most well built teams - we would likely not even be talking now because you would be talking on whomevers board would be getting the #1 pick instead of us.

Honestly i'm not worried about hype or interest levels - Wins change everyones attitude regardless. Just the same as losses do. Nobody really lieks to cheer for the losing team do they?? But if the team starts winning - People will come around even some of those who may be "Dissapointed" in whom we draft this year.

Go Texans :redtowel:

I think RB and VY are overrated as it is. For our team needs I'd trade the pick away and try and get some DL and OL help. I'm still in favor for trading it to the Jets for this year and next year 1st rounders and Jon Abrahamn.

I would keep John McLain nearby as well.

I think if they can get a SOLID O-line in 2 years for Bush they will take it in a second...if not then Bush will keep the Texan cap on all day during draft day. Either way we improve...

Grew up in Dallas, When Jerry Jones took over & fired Tom Landry, I was a TEXAS team fan. Back in the days of the Luv ya Blue! I have a Texas team to root for again & will back em to the end. Now, that being said, when the Oiler's moved from Texas, The city of Houston let that happen. I do not wanna see them leave again. I hope Jerry Jones Dies a painfull death
