Default Re: Gary Kubiak criticizes Texans' practice effort

This seems like a bit of a change from Kubiak, I don't think I've seen him comment on practices negatively before, but I may be wrong.

Frankly, I'm glad to see him holding his players to account, lets not forget that the roster is expanded from previous years quite a bit, with a much higher % of rookies than before, and as much as we're all excited about so many of the UDFA prospects we've signed, you know the level of quality is lower overall because there is a reason why each of these guys went undrafted, and the more I hear about them being great prospects, the more I think attitude etc must have contributed to their falling out of the draft.

I'm probably overanalysing though, its one bad day/one bad session even and I'm sure at this time of season the coaches will take any excuse they can to light a fire under their players and get them giving that little bit extra.

Good to see Gary getting after people though, he's normally very calm and composed in public.

Pretty sure Kubiak criticized last year's team as well. Maybe not for this particular practice, but during training camp.

Every year GK complains about a practice or two.

Every year they practice better the next day.

Just how it is. Do you do your job just as good every single day? Especially when you are learning something new. Nope.

Actually, this is the first time I get the feeling he's using the media to talk to his team. That's never been his M.O. before.

But again, we're in uncharted waters, trying to follow up our most successful season to date with an equally successful, if not more successful, season.

I think this season is going to be one heck of a ride.

TK. I've heard him talk about not being pleased with the way they practiced/finished several times before. IIRC he even had them on the field instead of the bubble prior to leaving for a game because he wasn't pleased with the practice the day prior. Too lazy to research an article but it's happened before. This isn't a new "MO".

I don't think anyone is missing a LB who was a two down player for the money he was making. Was he a "good locker room guy"? Sure he was!! Was he a fan favorite? Sure he was (myself included)!! Although it's pretty clear that DeMeco is better suited in a 4-3, not a 3-4.

That said, overpaying for fan favorites is pretty stupid.

Signed,
The Steelers and Patriots



Do I think Bradie James is the answer? Not so much. I hope he'll be servicable at a lot less money.

DeMeco..... I think he will have a Pro-Bowl (if there is one this year) in Philly and will totally be the leader that their defense needs.


Remember folks, it's about the name on the front of the jersey, not the back.
