View Full Version : Get the players to talk off record

The way we bring this disaster to a conclusion is the news people getting the players to talk "Not for attribution," meaning the players get to say what they mean without having to be named. It's a useful convention in the journalism business as it tends to open up the wound.

Dunta was close to speaking "for attribution" yesterday, so it should not be hard to get other team members to talk so long as they don't have to be identified.

When it comes out that the players know where the problems are, and are saying it openly, if not for attribution, McNair and Kubiak will get off their backsides and start making some moves.
