This is like one of my F students convincing me that they are a D student when they need at least a C minus not to retake the class. OK it was not total suckage it was just mostly suckage. It still was not good enough.
I don't think that is what 76 is trying to do.
People generally watch the game & they pick somebody to blame. Usually if you have one bad decision after anther, it get's easy to say "I was right, I know better than Kubiak, Smith, McNair"
Since Kareem was the #1 pick,we didn't pick Kyle Wilson, we didn't sign Dunta, Lee played us, & we let Jaques Reeves go, everybody wants to blame all their frustration for Kubiak & McNair on Kareem.
Wade is going to say what he said for several reasons. #1 it's true, #2 he knows the Texans fans don't want to hear what 76 is saying. If a Wade came out saying that, we'd start the "McNair strapped him to Kareem just like he forced Carr on Kubiak" crap.
#1 is true, because he's a rookie
& has a lot to learn. If I was Wade, Kareem wouldn't be in my top 5 things I need to worry about right now.
