Default McNair on Radio

McNair was just on 610 radio and seemed excited about having Mario and Weaver move inside on 3rd down with Peek and Babin at end. He said they would be the "fastest front line in the NFL" He also made a point to say he was tired of watching the Texans blow a lead in the 2nd half. Stated that with Bush we could not out score Indy. The only way we could beat Indy and win division was by putting Manning on this backside.

Sounds like Mcnair is as infatuated with beating the Colts as I am this year.

He told Pastabelly that we lost 8 games last year because we couldn't hold a lead and that was a big thing in the decision.

It was a great interview.

He basically said it is all about winning and what gives us our best chance to win in the long run.

That it was a football decision, that he trusts his coaching staff to make the right decision because they watch tons of film, not just highlights, and they know what their scheme is.

That anyone who says this is about money doesn't know what they are talking about because he believes they could have signed either one. And that the rumors that Bush was being offered less money were untrue.

That, of course, he cares what the fans think. But the role of the owner is to trust what his football people are telling him.

He said that we have to be able to beat the Colts if we are to win the division. The best way to do that is to get a pass rush on Peyton Manning. That even if you have Bush on your team, do you really feel that just that alone gives you a better chance to beat them, to outscore them..

That he was sick of not being able to hold a lead.

Thanks for the McNair update!

Like I've said, it was a decision based on need over greed. High powered offensive teams without solid defenses are one dimensional teams. Because once the offense hits a speedbump, there is nothing to fall back on.

Dominant defensive teams, on the other hand, only need an offense that can put a couple of scores on the board. We've seen it in the past with Houston football, and examples abound throughout the NFL's history.

well we have been saying for a couple seasons now that addressing the lines is the fastest way to make a good team. it all starts in the trenches. We really did a good job of strengthening our lines in this offseason.

lol @ football decision. you guys are easy to fool.

Bush was the only guy we negotiated with for 4 months, and had he come to terms with them before the draft he'd be a Texan. We only went with Williams because he would agree to a contract the day of.

Finances made this pick.

Bush or Williams does no matter. What matters is this teams ability to restock. i.e. Pittsburg and New England. They pick at the end of the draft consistantly and still have a solid roster year after year. They find a way to find value late. That is what the Texans need. The question is what are the players added to this Roster (free agency or Draft) going to do to improve this team. How can we be in the playoffs year after year. The team will not turn on this pick one way or the other. How all the pieces fit together is what matters. Ask the Redskins. They add all the popular free agents every year and they hype up the team. It never works they can't restock and they do not win superbowls. I would rather model the team like the Steelers then like the cowboys or Redskins. Just because we are a big market team does not mean we need to throw away money. By the way money drives everything in this league. There is no George of Football. The only team in America not run by money decisions is the Yankees.

Dont know how you can say that with such conviction. Sounds like an opinion/conspiracy theory to me.

Here is my opinion/conspiracy theory.

After 4 months negotiating with Bush, we came to the conclusion that we really didnt like his attitude and that we werent gonna take a risk like that on a player that didnt fit our franchise, or our needs. Feeling the pressure to make the popular pick.. we tried to make it work..but as the draft loomed closer, and Bush continued to try to stick it to us.. we said forget this guy, Williams is rated almost as high..is a physical super freak..and fits our needs perfectly.. lets just take the criticism and get the guy we really need.

Jimmy Johnson's number 1 objective was to beat Buddy Ryan's Eagles. Once he did that, the rest is history.

Fascinating-

For months it's been Bush vs Young or trade down to get D'Brick..
Now they pull Mario out their you know what, and everyone is justifying this?

There is no justification. Not saying Mario isn't good but c'mon, this pick was not the best for the franchise. We got screwed and the 06-07 record will show it..

To actually think management had months to think about this and this was the best they could do, now the real problem has been exposed.

Mario or Bush were known to be the top prospects on our board for the last couple of weeks. If you were surprised by the pick then you obviously werent following the Texans.

And btw.. the Texans NEVER said anything about getting D'Brick..that was completely made up by the fans who thought we needed a tackle in the first.

No justification for picking Williams? I recommend you look around and read all the justification people have been listing. Its not spin either.

If you can't say Mario Williams and Lawrence Taylor in the same breath, in which you cannot, then this was a wasted pick.

Oh Yea, the board was exploding with Mario as the #1 pick, right along with all the top analysts in the sports world that had Mario going first? Hmmm, I missed that one episode of EPSN, NFL Network.

You can justify anything, even crap decisions.

There have been small bands of resistance to the Bush/Young charm. We have advocated trade down for Williams (or whoever) for awhile.

I was one of the few that would be happy with any of five players as our first pick, but my first instinct was go with the defensive player (especially because we don't need a RB).

Hold on now. The Bush/Young/D'Brick thing was media driven and it did NOT come from the team. You must learn to distinguish between drivel frop the media and facts from the team.

This was far from a crap decision. It was the right one and I hope Williams does NOT become Lawrence Taylor. Bruce Smith, yes, but not Lawrence Taylor. And it is very possible that Reggie Bush will be mentioned in the same breath as Archie Griffin, Blair Thomas, Curtis Enis, Kiyannah Carter and Lawrence Phillips.

I think that people who are stilled pissed about this pick, are the same people who care more about "being entertained" than the final score.

McNair is exactly right. With Bush on this team, Manning still has all day to throw. Pittsburgh made Manning look like David Carr.

And you can believe what you want to believe. This was a Kubiak decision, so spare me your conspiracy theories.

exactly!

Bobo, knowing that you were an advocate extremist for addressing the offensive line and that Kubiac would lead this franchise down the crapper b/c he wasn't going to fix it, are you happy with the overall turnout of the draft this season (feel free to include offseason movements in your thinking). This is an honest question, not an attempt to bash you in anyway.
