That is exactly what I am telling you because that is the TRUTH whether you think it's crap, clairvoyant or someone's superiority. The Ravens are morons is you idea of evidence and not an insult? Make no mistake, Gary Kubiak has complete and final say on the 53 man roster. It is in his contract. All personnel transactions are only done after they have Kubiak's approval.

Rick Smith is a GM in name only. Rick Smith is a GM to Gary Kubiak in the same way that Scott Pioli was a GM to Bill Belichick. In Bob McNair's own words in 2006 he said he was using the Patriot's Model to build his team. Made sense after the Patriots had won 3 out of the last 5 Super Bowls. The only problem with that thinking is Kubiak is not Belichick, Smith is not Pioli and Houston is not New England.

That stupidest system you've ever heard of is the exact system they've in New England and the same system Denver used with Shanahan as the Head Coach and GM. That same system in Denver under Mike Shanahan that Kubiak and Smith trained under.

The fact that the Texans can't afford to pay all their bills for four years in a row is in fact a cap problem not a crap problem. That's also evidence you that you conveniently like to ignore. Kubiak does try to put the best talent on the field that money can buy. Unfortunately the Texans haven't had any money to spend.IT HAS FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH THEM The team 5 years from now isn't even part of the discussion or on the Texans radar. This has become all to familiar with the pattern of behavior and operations model of the Kubiak era. BTW The scoreboard still disagrees with you.
