Now, we have the exact same thing happening with KC players saying how great Keenum was, yet strangely, no one on TT thinks it's double-speak.
Dear me. This is getting difficult to follow...
Did you hurt your back reaching for that?
LOL. One thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other. First of all, Players actually play and can talk about the competition they play against and second this isn't people talking about a "team", they're talking about one singe player.. trust me if they wanted to sabotage us, they would speak highly of the NFL pick 6 record holder.. not the guy who just put up the highest passer rating against them. 3rd, owners are just like us, they just watch.
As far as what was said back then, I remember it.. I highly doubt the owners were so worried about Bob and his new team (led by Carr) where the other owners felt they had to "fool" him in some grand conspiracy agreement like the Texans were some growing threat to all their success. I mean there's 32 teams in the league, but they only wanted to keep the Texans down? That take didn't make sense then and it still doesn't now and neither does this one. Especially since KC isn't a divisional opponent and I highly doubt they expect to see us again this season, so why the need for the "double speak"?
