I would be they wouldnt cut him but you could bet they would tell him to shut his mouth. If Reed was playing well he would get slack too more than likely

He's a future HOF'er who knows how to master his craft and prepare for games. And he's already paid.

Why not sit down with the guy and ask him to do as much player coaching as he can. "Your body is done -- you & we know it -- we want your mind, to share with our players."

Guys on the radio also said the NFL announced that the Patriots game was flex scheduled and downgraded from a 3:25 start to a noon start. I know a lot of people here don't like 3:25 games (I, personally, do) but such a move is embarrassing. The late afternoon games are more prestigious and national.

What a mess this team is.

Yep. He touched on it a bit in the interview that came out the other day.

Like he said, he's not an idiot. He knows football. He probably saw stuff out there and went to the coaches with it. They probably said "okay thanks Ed" and did nothing about it. He may have lost a lot of his ability, but he still has his brain and football IQ. If you're not going to listen to the guy then why even hire him in the first place?

"[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. It’s not often that we have that opportunity. We’ve 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

Can you imagine if Reed comes back to Houston in Patriots gear in a few weeks?

Aww Hell no. Either of those two could pull an Incognito and the Texans would look the other way. There are some players who've earned the right, and they qualify.

(Of course, I would prefer they didn't....lol)

I do not disagree. But that same leadership quality that McNair was bragging about is the same leadership quality that answered a question when asked by the press.

This franchise has a history of getting rid of players who do not tow the company line. It is peculiar then as much as it is now.

Ed is merely the guy admitting that the emperor has no clothes.

Confirms that this is a horrible organization from top to bottom, unless he asked to be released. Otherwise it was petty and only done because he said what everyone was thinking, but no one but him had the balls to vocalize. Our coaching staff is crap! Total bush-league move by Mrs. Smith, Aunt Bob, and the rest of the eunuchs.

This is why I feel we would never get a fiery coach like Gruden or Cowher. McNair seems to always want to hire "yes" men.

But that's the point - the total cap hit isn't the same. It will be reduced by $62,500 for every game he would have been on the 46 man active roster. That's real cap reduction - not just moving it between years.

Yep. I'm starting to resent the "save Kubiak at all costs" culture that this team has. It's extremely frustrating. Even Rick Smith, who isn't perfect, has at least drafted fairly well, for the most part. So I'm ok with him staying a bit longer.

But, everything revolves around keeping Kubiak, and protecting him, and never criticizing him, and not judging him, etc. that this is where we are.

Why do you think this team couldn't "rally around the fallen coach" like a lot of teams do after Kubiak went down? Because the players don't know how. That would have taken some players stepping up as leaders, and we have not built the kind of culture that supports that.

This just in: Texans - Pats game will no longer be broadcasted on any network. If you want to see it, you must attend the game.

This just in: Texans-Pats game to be played in Astrodome. Something about the condition of the turf/grass pallets or something like that. Raider game in Reliant, then Pats game at the dome.
