Default Dan Reeves: Take Vince Young

I just heard John McClain say that Dan Reeves recommended that the Texans take Vince Young, but obviously they didn't listen to him....he is on his Friday evening radio spot on 610am right now. http://www.sportsradio610.com/

Wonder why we paid him money to "advise" us if we were not going to listen to his advice.

OMG are we still crying that we didn't pick Vince Young from the draft that's been over almost 8 months now? Geez, people will just not let it go and move on.

Um, this is just news of great interest I'm passing along. That's what message boards are for.

Default Re: Dan Reeves: Take Vince Young

That's very interesting, especially since had we not taken Williams it would have been more likely Bush than Young.

Maybe there is something to the theory that McNair is the one who is insisting on Carr. No one else could have easily overruled Reeves. Maybe Kubiak could have.

I guess we should all follow McClain because he can't let it go either.

And where does Casserly fit into all of this.

I can't tell if McNair is just not saying anything about Carr because well he is still here and that will definitely cause a stir in media asking Carr how he feels now that he knows he will no longer be a Texan? Just not PR wise anyway...but I am just hoping this is the case!

"We"? No kidding!

Because "advising" is simply offering an opinion on a subject. He wasn't hired to make and implement final decisions.

Contrary to popular belief, not everything was Casserly's fault. Had McNair given Casserly the power to force the coaches to do things they refused to the Texans would be in a better position right now.

Just my opinion, of course.

I think it is really the discussion about the decision making issues of the organization and all the blunders made. This topic being one of them.

Interesting you should bring that up. Today, I heard the theory kicked around that some of Casserly's boys are still working in the Texans organization as scouts, and maybe other low profile positions. "The point being, the team is still not entirely rid of the stinch of the previous administration."

Default Re: Dan Reeves: Take Vince Young

So why is it that McNair does not tell people that Reeves advised him to take Vince Young, but a "coach" told him he would not come to Houston if they let Carr go and chose Vince Young. Why is he trying to make it seem like taking Vince Young was an unpopular choice of the coaches he interviewed when his "adviser" was telling him to do it?

There is always two sides.
