For those of us that like to torture Sir CheesburgerAlot, he's having his live chat today at 11:45am. Prepare tough questions, and watch them go unanswered again and again for your own entertainment. Now and then one of us will get a question in and somewhat answered, and I'll do the same as I did last week, save the text file, and post it here when he's done for the day. That usually coincides with lunchtime :)

It's called Humor Joe...smile man....otherwise someone will accuse you of being John instead of Joe :) If I disliked McClueless, I'd take his cheeseburger away, and never go to his live chats. I attend all I can, I save the text files so people can read through them (editing them in color so you can tell questions from answers), without any commentary on my part. Now pull your hardhat outta your butt bro, it's making ya anal :)

Doesn't make much sense to log onto the chat if you don't respect his opinion about the NFL. He almost always answers questions I send him and if you don't get it answered on the chat send him an email and he'll answer that way. John makes himself available numerous ways for NFL information.

Word. I dont like alot of his opinions, but thats why aI mostly avoid his stuff like the plauge. Just ignore it if you dislike him.

Just because someone doesn't like John McClain doesn't mean you need to tell them to get a life. This is a forum where we share our views on everything.

You need to relax when someone doesn't like your best bud John.

But I do like John McClain, that is the entire point of my retorts....I realize about 50% don't like John, thus my humorous use of McClueless for a name, and then referring to the fact he doesn't answer hard questions. Thus everyone's negativity to my posting is pointless :)

I don't like him because he takes Megan Manfull's rightful spot at the front page of the paper. But I like him because he's like a Disney movie, a Walrus that left the wilderness and came to Houston and adapted to human lifestyles.

Honestly, I think he is clueless when it comes to NFL Xs and Os and what the Texans need, personnel, etc. I think he is brilliant at spinning yarns, telling stories and getting inside scoop for the the NFL. That is his M.O. Talking real football...he might as well read ESPN and then regurgitate things over and over and over.

Too late buddy. I think JC has already gone to lunch.

What I can't stand is how bad the signal to noise ratio is on these things. He spends so much time answering stupid questions and trying to be cute that you really do learn very little reading them.

Do you post on the Texans Talk forums as Joe Texan? :)

12:09 John McClain: No, but it's difficult to tell us apart. He's the handsome one.

I agree, I try to carpet bomb football questions in a hope to keep the thing on topic.

The search for a D-Coordinator starts next week. That's about it so far.

When I asked about Sean McDermott he said if it is a position coach then it would be Frank Bush. Hope he is wrong.

Here is one of the complaints I have--he states things very definitively without differentiating whether it is solely his guess or he actually has some internal information.

Since the days of long past (Asserly getting fired) McClain has had no real info in to what the Texans are thinking or going to do. He is more interested in doing music videos and other such fluff pieces. Football is entertainment but it is not a half hour comedy show and that is how John treats it. Us fans are way to passionate for that crap and what hard nose information and facts when it comes to new coaches and FA players.

Here is one of the complaints I have--he states things very definitively without differentiating whether it is solely his guess or he actually has some internal information.

With comments like this he comes across as, I am smarter and better than you person. Richard Justice comes off this way, but when you call him out we all know how he reacts to it. Instead of, like you said, saying it will not be McDermott give us reason why it is or why you think it is this way.

You mean like this:

12:50 [Comment From Tim]
John, there are rumors that Lechlet wants out of Oaklnad. Any chance Rick Smith brings him back to Texas to replace Turk?

12:50 John McClain: No.

WWJD

You mean like this:

I'm just guessing but I would think he's probably getting hundreds of questions tossed at him and doesn't have the time to sit there and explain why the Texans don't want a certain Oakland player...a simple NO suffices.

He can't sit there and give a lengthy answer to every question.

Works fine for me. I prefer the video chat over the other. He gets more questions in.

Here's the cap of the text, but once they went to the live video, the text stopped. Next time I'll cap the video from the stream and provide that as well.

Isn't that the truth!

I would have hoped it started the day RS and crew were fired. I don't want our next D coordinator to be sloppy seconds like RS was. I want the guy that Rick Smith and Kubiak covet the most to be our next man in charge of the defense.

Interesting purported insight on what the Texans think of as a "bigger" RB:

12:44 [Comment From OscarR]
What about a good power back to compliment Slaton. The Texans were pretty lackluster in the red zone.
12:44 John McClain: They want a bigger back, somebody in the 215 range, who fits what they do.

It started a couple of weeks ago - but I haven't been able to get it to work.

Probably for the best.
