Honestly he does not do enough of this type of stuff. Not expecting anything really interesting but it is a national interview.

Oh my god... Are you kidding me Rick Smith?

The interviewer asked him if during the lockout they distributed playbooks. Smith answers "Well we had guys come in for workouts and we had those types of meetings planned for the following week, which obviously didn't happen."

WHAT?

There was a report on PFT.com that Miami was the only team to not get playbooks out.

Saints also did not get the playbooks out to Jordan and ingram

Why would Smith have said that I wonder. It would have been an easy question to answer

Heres the exact transcript for anyone who is curious (regarding this one question):

Florio

And Rick there was that period when the lockout ended for a day or two, were you able to get some of the players in, distribute playbooks, during that brief window when the lockout was over?

And Smith's Answer:
Well we had guys that came in and got workouts in and saw the coaches and we had meetings planned for the following week and obviously that didn't happen but you know our guys are anxious to get back in it just like their coaches are anxious to get back in it and as soon as we can get the labor situation rectified you know we'll be ready to roll.


So bizarre

True. I think the Texans have a minimal information policy under this regime.

Despite popular belief, C.I.A. actually stands for The Houston Texans. Coincidentally, the information they both gather typically takes years or decades to produce discernible results.

Haha at least we get info from the CIA, albeit it seems to change on a daily basis. The Texans dodge questions like theyre running for president

I think they were meaning the 1st round draft picks.

I think Rick's answer was probably meaning existing players on the roster.

Pretty sure I saw Wade hand Watt a playbook in one of the clips posted on the mothership page.

Darn near the first thing Watt asked for. He was like "hey coach, can I get the playbook?" Really like this kid.

I think we may be more dysfunctional than we like to think, & Rick didn't know.

Hate to think that, but if the team did get the playbooks out (with the exception of Miami) & Rick Smith answered the question the way he did... chances are good that he simply didn't know.
