Wade clearly wasn't on board. I don't think Kubiak would overrule Wade on this.
Not firing Smith may be McNair saying "my bad" on Reed.
I'd be willing to front that bet. From everything I heard McNair say, he was convinced Ed Reed's experience to put us over the top.
I think McNair made a "command decision" and Rick Smith followed orders. Who knows if Wade or Rick tried to talk him (Uncle Bob) out of it or just saluted then executed.
