It's always a buddy system. Every team in the league is run on the buddy system. We mentioned a while back that Kubiak's circle was too small & the Houston Texans didn't have anything to attract the best DC candidates. If Wade didn't have ties to Houston & his Dad wasn't such good friends with McNair, we would have had no shot at bringing in Wade just like we had no shot at bringing in the top WR talent in FA.

WIIFM, that's what coaches & players are thinking about when they are out looking for a job. & we had nothing.

Greg Williams - Wants way to much money, not an option
Mike Nolan - They got Dumerville, he's going to Denver
Monte Kiffen - He's not leaving his boy
Frank Bush - Whelp... looks like our best option

You can't neglect something & address it at the same time. Only one of those conditions can possibly be true.

& you may not agree with the direction the team took, but it's obvious Kubiak took one for the team & tried to make lemonade while putting the vast majority of team resources in the defense. & he's done a pretty good job of it to date, but to get to where we need to go, they know they have to spend more on offense & they did.

I think they should have made that decision last year, but they didn't. They tried, Posey & Martin are proof of that. What we did in the 2013 draft is simply an extension of that.

Once again, thank you McNair for stepping in & righting your ship.
Had Posey not torn his achilles I doubt we'd have used a first on WR. Probably still an offensive player & I bet McNair would have announced that's what we needed. Because Kubiak told him that's what was needed.

They all say the same thing. They have since Kubiak was hired. They will, until he's gone.
