"[W]e have the opportunity to bring in someone that can add a dimension to our team that really, really feels a need that we have. Its not often that we have that opportunity. Weve talked before about the fact that as we get into the playoffs, we have to have that level of mental toughness that will allow us to handle the increased pressures that are taking places in that point in time. In order to do that, we need to have veteran leadership on the field."
~ Bob McNair


So that whole leadership angle was only valid if he was going to tow the company line?

This is a sinking ship, but they want to act like it's all sunshine and rainbows on Kirby. Give me a break. We've seen this before, and it's just sprinkles on a dog turd. It's not brownie. It's sprinkle covered poo.

I hope Ed comes out and lays it bare now that he's got nothing to lose. This FO needs to be blown up and replaced. Going from a playoff season to 2-7 is pathetic. No more excuses for status quo.


All that was said before he turned a turd and didnt do anything on the field. While the NFL might be a different business, its a business just the same and running your mouth when you arent putting up often times would get you the can
