    Yes. Marc Vandermeer talked about that before he spoke. How after his first year speech, everyone left that room wanting to run through a brick wall for him.

    I'll see what the Texans post about the luncheon. I shot some video--if they don't post some of the cool parts of the speeches, I will do a blog post with it.

    Most important thing said at the luncheon.

    Kubiak said that it has been misreported that he persuaded Alex Gibbs and Ray Rhodes to come to Houston.

    That both Gibbs and Rhodes asked to come here because they were excited about what they were seeing in Houston. They wanted to be a part of it.

    Put that in your things that are cool list.

    Nope. But current players receiving awards were. They also showed a video of highlights of the players.

    No.

    There were some Texans player awards from last years team. Ephraim Salaam was a hoot. He needs to do stand up comedy or host a show when he retires from football.

    Dang, I almost wish I hadn't learned that.
    I've had this thought of Gibbs as this O-Line guru being pursued by most of the NFL teams to come out of seclusion and help lead them to victory.
    Now I have an image of the old-timer, retired in AZ but calling a younger, former associate to plead for one more shot at the big-time.
