What about the report by Lewis "Sausage Fingers" Malone that Golden Corral will unveil chicken-fried corn on the cob in April?

John McClain: What do I think about it? Totally bogus. It's still in the trial phase, and won't be ready to roll out to customers until May at the earliest.

How do you know?

McClain: Because I'm on the Trial Committee. Duh. Next question.

Would you ever contemplate actually eating Lewis' fingers if you and Lewis were trapped on a deserted island and had nothing to eat?

McCLain: Ah, a trick question! Depends on if we had any syrup or not.

Is it true you make your own syrup, John, and if so...how?

McClain: Nice try, Lewis. You're not getting my syrup recipe you bastard.

Gravy. Your thoughts?

McClain: Should be part of the food pyramid, no doubt about it. Cream gravy, brown gravy, turkey gravy, gravy with bits of crumbled sausage in it, how can it not be in the food pyramid?

The new Nacho-flavored Doritos taco shell at Taco Bell, will it have staying power?

McClain: Hard to say. Does it have the same consistency as a Nacho Doritos chip or is it just a regular shell with some Nacho Dorito flavor sprayed onto it? Call me skeptical, but I've seen some real doozies in my day when it comes to food fads. I'll need a 10-pack before I can reach a verdict, obviously.
LMFAO....this made me chuckle nicely this morning! Much needed

From everything I've heard, he was instrumental in getting Warren Moon into the hall of fame. For that, I will always respect the man.

True story...

I bumped into Charles Woodson when he was a touted free agent in 2006. He was here in Houston. I, of course, was HAPPY to see him here as I thought it meant he was potentially signing with us. Well... after a while, I finally asked him... who are you signing with? He said Tampa Bay. I repeated myself to him as I always do. He confirmed a few times. *Tampa Bay*. I went and posted this info on a message board that I used to frequent. ****er signed with Green Bay a few days later. Out came the Deaf jokes and I was mocked... but I maintain to this day... he said Tampa Bay. He purposely deceived me or was simply leaning the most towards Tampa Bay.

Moral is? If there's no ink on the contract... it ain't so.

So yeah... I'm with you... the ones who know ain't talking.

Nope. I remain firm that he said Tampa. Like I said, it's why the Deaf jokes poured out. At the time, in the papers, rumors were swirling that he was going to sign with Tampa Bay.

Good story, Nitro!

I think he was deceiving you...in case you were somehow able to leak the info to the media. He should have not said anything at all, IMO, to be smart and not risk the news getting out and it causing a problem with Tampa Bay OR Green Bay.

Thanks for sharing the story, though. That was cool.

Why would he want to deceive him? Why wouldn't he want it out in the media? That's how these contracts are negotiated.

"Hey, I heard this guy in Texas say he's signing with Tampa Bay."

Ted Thompson, "Well hell, tell him we'll guarantee more money."


It could happen.

If you had to ask me... I think Woodson himself believed he was going to Tampa Bay. If the ink ain't dry...

@MarkBermanFox26: The Texans reworked contract of receiver Andre Johnson for the 2012 season. His $7.5 million salary now guaranteed, which creates cap space.

John McClain LOST.

OMG someone please tell me they just heard the "only a fantasy football player" caller on 610 suggesting we just "cut Andre Johnson".

I'm dusting off this old thread, because the most recent Andre thread was closed. This came from the Jj Watt thread, but I didn't really think it belonged there.

I don't know about that. There may be a time where it's in the best interest of the team to ask Aj to take a pay cut. Then it's up to him to put his money where his mouth is with all the "I want to retire a Texans" talk that is.

His most recent performance shows that he's still one of the better receivers in the league & it's no crime to pay him like it.

I don't agree with his $14M cap number, I'd have extended his contract this season (like he wanted) to get both his salaries & cap number down. The only reason I see that not happening, is that he wanted to continue to be one of the highest paid receivers in the league.

In that case, if I were Rick Smith, or Bob McNair I'd tell him he's got two choices..... play out his contract.... actually, that's only one choice. If he wants his contract redone, it's going to be for less money.

I'm pretty sure that David Carr taught Bob McNair a pretty painful lesson on getting carried away with this thing called 'loyalty'.

There is no room for loyalty in the NFL anymore. It may have existed before free-agency, but now, you put the best 53 out there, no matter what. Sentimentalists can go sit in the stands.

McNair's got one of the highest valued sport franchises in the world... how in the heck did David Carr teach him a lesson?

If anyone got hurt on the deal, it was Kubiak. He pretty much wasted a year of his coaching career.

Then again, he probably would have taken Lienart #1 overall... or Clemmons in the second. Pretty much a lose-lose situation when Cutler is the only QB from that class that's starting.

You're right, it's the same thing. If you're running a football team correctly, you don't dwell on "what you did in the past", it's "what have done for me lately?". And if what you've done for me lately, isn't worth the money I'm paying you, then take a pay cut, or get cut." It's that simple.

The unfortunate lesson that David Carr taught Bob McNair is David Carr scared Bob McNair away from drafting Blake Bortles.
