Whether signing an issue player (Talib-NE), firing offensive coordinator in third quarter of season (Ravens), Trading to get that playmaker (see above), changing quarterbacks despite winning with the previous (49ers).
In any case, McNair's answers seem good except the coaching one. Not expecting anything with Kubiak but all the coaching staff didn't step up and we already named the individual. Then again it could just be the political crap. I care more on actions than on words. He could say all that and Kubes turns around and fires Marciano. I'll wait and see.
Other than that he didn't say anything we didn't and he's right on most of those points. Hopefully Smith is capable of actually executing this though. That may be the bigger question.
