McLame totally blows the chance to shine the light on Marciano.
because mclain is a paid hack on the texan payroll.

this stuff happens when there is only one major newspaper in the 4th largest city in america.

Jerry Jones

Get out.

So you would want somebody who isn't willing to accept the blame for why their team has been so mediocre?

Someone who, despite having a successful HC, fires him just because they don't agree?

Jerry is the reason the Cowboys have been stuck in a rut. I'd choose an owner like McNair over the Jerry any day.

Oh and btw, I understand the need to be negative about the team, and that is what you do. However, if this team gives you such a fit, then why even waste your time rooting for this team?

There is no reason our season ended the way it did other than the failure of the coaching staff and the QB.

Where is he saying that?

.

You'd rather have Jerrah Jones ?! What the hell have they done in the last decade ?!

I think Bob's got it right when he says he wants to emulate the Steelers orginization. They may have a down year here and there .... but they are in general an excellent orginization with high expectations each year.

I don't think we regressed in 2012. I think Cincinnati was a better team than Tj beat in 2011 & I think New England was a better team than last years Ravens. For a short time last year, we were the standard everyone was chasing.

If we get bounced by New England in next year's play-offs, I don't care if it's Wild Card, or Championship game, I'd want to see a change. Especially if we fail to beat them in the regular season as well.

But the mentions of 11 and 13 should imply that yes, it DOES mean playoffs/Super Bowl included.

Agreed about Jerrah

However give me an org like Chicago/SF/Sea. If things aren't working out heads roll. Look at the turnover of GMN/asst coaches, not to mention they make moves to improve their teams, player wise.

Would BoB ever have a Randy Moss on his team? Would he ever hire Pete Carroll and have Marshawn Lynch on his team? etc...

Remember when the Texans didn't have a RB? People/me were clamouring for the Texans to trade for Lynch. Lynch may be a disgusting human being, but he's one of the top 5 RB's in the NFL. All for the low cost of a 4th rd pick.

Pats traded in season for Talib, still playing with Talib starting? at the cost of a 4th rd draft pick.

Point is the teams still playing take chances on guys like this. Texans? nope, but they got a good little team. This is why I would draft a guy like Matheiu with the supp 3rd rd draft pick. He is a dynamic return guy who can be McCains replacement of play FS in a single high S look. This guy is a playmaker.

Will the Texans take a shot at a talented guy like this for example on the cheap? No way,No how, it's not the Texans way. Winning be damned.

Steelers didn't even make the play-offs. Time to blow it up. New QB, new DC, new HC, hell toss the GM too.

There are more teams out there that make those moves that aren't playing right now. They didn't play last week, & they didn't play the week before. I didn't see the Falcons canning their coach & GM when they failed to advance in the play offs three years running.

We brought Eric Moulds on the team, I don't know why we wouldn't have brought Randy Moss, other than most people thought he was done. As much as I don't like Pete Carroll coaching other teams, I wouldn't mind him in Houston. I don't see why McNair wouldn't have brought him in. Other than our GM probably doesn't know him & he never would have probed for interest.

Lynch..... Sounds like you're GMing this thing looking backwards. It's real easy to do it that way.

Chances are they won't. However, I like your thinking. No Joke, I think you should put together a portfolio & keep knocking on McNairs door until he agrees to see you.

Good question.

The bleacher report believes it was because Arians wasn't very creative.

Quote:
Arians is retiring to graze the pasture, or whatever it is that retired football coaches do. Either way, it is time for a change in Pittsburgh. The offense was handicapped by conservatism, something that drew me and a lot of other Steelers fans insane over the past four years. I'm exhausted.

Well...... not that I want to defend Kubiak at all costs, but he got his team to the divisional round under the same circumstances.

While I'm not the biggest McNair fan, I do like that he mentioned we need to get mentally tougher on the big national stage. If the Texans struggle in big stage regular season games, how will they play if they ever reach a Super Bowl?

Whether signing an issue player (Talib-NE), firing offensive coordinator in third quarter of season (Ravens), Trading to get that playmaker (see above), changing quarterbacks despite winning with the previous (49ers).

In any case, McNair's answers seem good except the coaching one. Not expecting anything with Kubiak but all the coaching staff didn't step up and we already named the individual. Then again it could just be the political crap. I care more on actions than on words. He could say all that and Kubes turns around and fires Marciano. I'll wait and see.

Other than that he didn't say anything we didn't and he's right on most of those points. Hopefully Smith is capable of actually executing this though. That may be the bigger question.

This is a chicken or the egg situation .

. Before the season the expectations were soaring because the Texans looked stacked . On defense it was thought they would improve from the number 2 ranking .

The Texans were not as good as we thought . Losing Breisel , Winston , Dreesen , and Demeco along with Cushing's injury , proved costly .

Here's an interview John McClain had w/ Bob McNair. Has some pretty interesting quotes from ole Bob. Seems Bob agrees the team needs a mental toughness adjustment when playing the big boys on the national stage & another playmaker at wr. Unfortunately he exudes all kinds of confidence in Kubiak, his coaches(saving grace for Marciano???), & Schaub. More wins is Bob's goal, but it would be nice if those wins could lead to something more then the Divisional round in the playoffs. Thoughts on what he had to say...
I thought I had heard this "pep talk" by McNair last year, but I couldn't remember exactly when and where...........until I finally found this article in the Chronicle now.:
