Radio 790 reported that McNair addressed the media stating that there is no reason we should not have a chance to win every game.

Kubiak has been excellent with the offense.

With Wade, we have as good a defensive coach as any.

(glaringly absent was mention of Kubiak as a great HC)

We are physically tough, but have to get more tough mentally.

That's all I caught.

He was on 610 today with Vandy and Lopez and did a full interview and did support Kubes (or at least keeping him and how D was not his fault meaning Kubes got a pass).

He was very excited about the team, etc.

Sounded to me like he believes he has made the safe and correct moves.

I'm sure 610 will have it podcasted if not already.

McNair On Why Fans Should Believe In The 2011 Texans (http://houston.cbslocal.com/2011/08/10/mcnair-on-why-fans-should-believe-in-the-2011-texans/) (PODCAST)

So if we were on the right track last year, then this season we should be arriving at the right destination!

I can't fault McNair for anything he says in pre-season. He's the Texans biggest fan, so I'm glad that he's optimistic and believes that we can win every game. I would expect nothing less from him.

I can't listen the podcast right now. Did he say playoffs or bust? :fans:

Don't remember now any specific comments on the playoffs, but maybe there was.

I have never really had much of a problem with what McNair has said in the past. I think it is pretty obvious now he is pushing hard for success when in the past he wasn't though.

After a question by McLaim "why do you expect to go deep into the playoffs?

We've takena lot of steps in the offseason to improve our defense plus we've got Barwin and Ryans back - Losing those two guy,s - they are important losses.

I think Connor is gonna be outstanding , fans havent seen much of him , he is a tremendous athlete. I think he's going to be a great player.

Demeco's playing his way back into shape and getting better each day.

Then we've got JJ Watt and uh , nobody can block him. I mean thats the bottom line , you go out there and watch him and .... they cant block him.
He's been really quite a pleasant surprise , we knew he was good but frankly he's certainly better than I thought he would be.


Goes on to say that they were in the running for all the top DB's (Refering to Namdi) and decided to make the move that strengthened the team - Namdi didnt know what he wanted to do - so they moved on what they thought improved them the most with two players instead of one.

I know it wasn't Kubiak's fault for the defense, but who was responsible for the slow start from our offense in some games? For example, @WAS(down 20-7 at half), @DAL(down 10-3 at half, and the offense didn't show up at all), vs NYG(down 24-3 at half, offense didnt show up at all again), vs KC(down 14-7 at half), @Colts(down 17-3 at half, and we started the drive w/ a pass to Dre for a first down, and then 3 and outs with all passes, WTF), vs SD(started 20-14, only to not show up in the 2nd half), then @NYJ, didnt show up until the 4th quarter and scored to early, vs BAL, didn't show up until 2nd half, then offense only scored 17 points @ TEN, wth?, then our offense disappeared in the 2nd half to the goddamn Denver Broncos. This offense is too good to do that, whether it's the HC/OC's fault, or the players'.

McNair is simply clueless. Barry Werner on 610 called McNair naive, and I believe it. How in the hell is the terrible defense not Kubiaks fault? He's the head coach ain't he? He hired the back to back suckass DC's who had no experience what so ever. He started the secondary with no experience. No wonder Kubiak doesn't hold his players accountable, McNair doesn't hold Kubiak accountable.

To be fair to Kubiak .... Rick Smith didnt give him much to work with.

I know the next words outa your mouth are Kubiak saying he thought those kids would do fine .... what was he suppose to say , hey these kids suck , my GM sucks and didnt get me any help ? Im soooo screwed ?!!? :foottap:


You guy's bash Kubiak all you want .... but there is plenty of blame to spread around from the top of the orginization all the way to the waterboy. Can he cover ?!! Suit his ass up.

While I see your point and even agree with it to a point, I do blame Kubiak when KJ was getting burned up all over the place when he WASN'T falling down and we were all clamoring for some kind of change..........ANY kind of change and Kubiak stood pat with quotes like "We'll stick with what we've got" so he didn't even mess with the depth chart until it was too late.

If Kubiaks excuse is the fact that Smith didn't give much to work with then he can look in the mirror for that one as well since he's the one that brought in Smith also, another guy who had no experience in his position. I agree with Barry Werner, McNair is naive and ignorant.

There is a darn good reason that most Houston fans have become insensitive to and lost patience with perennial promises.

It has been more than 17 years since Houston witnessed its football team play in the postseason. Among current NFL cities, none has gone as long as Houston without a playoff appearance. Even Detroit has been in the postseason more recently than Houston.link (http://www.foxsportshouston.com/08/10/11/McNair-running-thin-on-patience-with-Tex/landing_texans.html?blockID=545982&feedID=3551)

I'd love for this team to be good enough to have a bandwagon.
All bandwaggoners are welcome, IMO. Those of us who stuck through the bad times will know the truth.
A championship will never be as sweet for a bandwaggoner as it is for The Faithful.

Well said, man! It doesn't matter if you were a Sunshine Club or Fire Kubiak fan, they were all just different seats on the bandwagon. Both sides are TRUE fans, regardless of optimism, pessimism, or any other -ism that this team caused within you.

That's the thing. The faithful Texans fans tend to take it out on each other, because the fair-weather fans don't bother to pay attention. So we've had these bitter in-fights and causes to call each other out and challenge each other's degree of fanaticism, but the truth is that if you have been willing to engage other fans, you still care about this team and you never left the bandwagon.

No, the true bandwagon is when the team starts winning and even the non-football fans are excited and shaking your hand when they see you in team gear. Those were awesome times during the Rockets two championship runs, when complete strangers were striking up happy conversations about the hometown team, regardless if they had been fans all along or not.

I can't wait for that atmosphere to take over this town for the Texans!!! :texflag:

I hope it can spread about 90 miles east on 10. This is a Cowboy hellhole right here. Us Texan fans are definately in the minority. I've had Cowboy fans ask me "Why" like they couldn't fathom a person actually being a fan of the Texans. I can't wait, and I know it's going to happen. I'll be a happy, happy fan.:fans:

I stick around for Oilers from 1962 until they moved. Began with Texans day 1 but seriously considered giving up if draft & off season did not go well. This means all the emotions I have gone through means I am a band wagon rider if I leave then come back? To be a true fan you have to be "abused"? How funny.

I realize I allow my emotions to get too caught up in Houston sports.
