Default Is Pollard Unhappy to Be a Texan?

What do you all make of this comment by Pollard?:

“Change is not always good,” he said. “And I speak from experience: Change is not always good."

From the Chronicle: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/6750290.html

He is obviously stating that players must do their job or they will be replaced. However, this quote could be stating that he wished there wasn't an initial change for him. He clearly states that not all change is good.

What do you all think? Am I taking this out of context?

Yes. I believe he is referring to the 2 weeks he spent unemployed. The article pretty much spells that out.

I seriously doubt he would rather be with the Chefs () than the Texans.

I don't think it necessary spells it out....One could argue that sure, being unemployed for two weeks sucked, but if it lead to a better job, then the change and the firing was for the best because he's in a better situation.

He says change is not always good.

I think his comment is meant to support Kubiak and to say 'the grass is always greener on the other side' and 'you don't know what you got till its gone'.

there is no way he would rather be in KC than Houston. I have kin in KC and that town sucks balls. Nothing to the west and nothing to the east till St.Louis.

Default Re: Is Pollard Unhappy to Be a Texan?

The guy is happy to be employed, so yes, he's happy in Houston.

These questions about "is so-and-so happy to be a Texan?" come from a defeatist attitude, as if the team is Oakland or something.

Have you personally ever been to KC ?
And what do you mean exactly by "nothing to the west and nothing to the east till St.Louis" ? Are you talking about population centers ?

I hate thread titles like this, because no matter what facts get introduced, the title stands and essentially fuels the rumor.

I've been there and that's about right. Unless you're into farmland, you can drive from St.L to K.C. along I-70 and not see nuffin but farm fields. If you're a city dude like me, that constitutes "nothing".

Now if you're a farmboy, then you might be in heaven.

Nothing wrong with either one. Takes all kinds.

Does anyone know what his contract situation is? I think he signed a 2 year deal so even if he's unhappy he'll still be here

There is a story about Lawrence Taylor telling the other players that if the Giants fire Parcells , they're going to bring in a hardass and we're going to hate it . That was the Giants turning point .

He's clearly talking about a coaching change.

He just went through a coaching change in KC, and it turned out horribly.

His situation in KC, and the current situation with Kubiak line up perfectly with his comments.

There should be a web counter on how many times Second Honeymoon references the male nether region. I imagine it would be quite high at this point.

Also, the audio or video of what pollard said would probably shed some light on the context. Take chron quotes with a shot of whiskey.

There was a big change in KC that Larry Johnson pointed out. "Change isn't good" so he went back to his old DB coach.

Nothing there ? What on earth does that that mean ? Can you not elaborate ? I'm honestly curious why you have such a negative opinion of the city/metro-area that many think is a really outstanding place to live and work ? Did the cops give you a ticket there, or a girlfriend up there jilt you ?
I was born and raised in a small Missouri city about 50 miles from KC which is the kinda place that qualifies as having "nothing there", but not KC which I visited many,many times over the years. Actually it has a lot of things in common with the city I've now called home since the 1980s. For example KCs barbeque and NFL football fans among other things are legendary. What's not to like about that ?
