    The title speaks for itself.
    If the Broncs go to the Bowl then Kubiak will not even have a chance to evaluate Carr face to face. Option due 2/2 and the Bowl is 2/5 :confused:
    Oh, wait I know what they'll do.
    They'll get to know each other over the phone. (against NFL rules)

    I remember a date I once went once where I met the girl over the phone through a friend. We told each other what color shirt we'd be wearing. Well I wore a different color at the last minute before leaving the house. :spy: Thank God I did. That girl was Ubafubu-ugly with frizzy hair.:eek:

    I hope Kubes win one and comes to town en fuego but this worries me. He's the only guy we've got (sort of) who can truly evaluate him without any biases.

    I think they use the option no matter what either way. Carr isn't leaving for nothing.

    I thought it was March 1st or 2nd, but then I found this - which says it's February (oops) 19th.

    Whatever it is, Kubiak needs to be here by a week from today. Go Steelers.

    do you guys really believe that Kubiak hasn't already weighed in on this? this decision, either way, has been made, IMO

    It's still not enough time for my liking. Kubiak needs to get more time to figure out why (at least as *I* see it) some of the players are so frustrated with Carr.

    If Carr isn't signed then he cannot be used for potential "trade bait". No option: He's a UFA and we'll recive no compensation.

    He'll be resigned, but that doesn't mean that we'll keep him. No need for anyone to freak out when he's signed. It's going to happen.

    I'm sorry, but do I have to type IMO also, or is "at least the way *I* see it" sufficient?

    I do not think that Walker and Robinson wanting Young is about just Young.

    Interesting, but it gave me another idea. Maybe a cooling off period is needed because the players are probably frustrated about a lot of things: being 2-14, dealing with bad coaching, not knowing if Carr is any good, heck - they're probably frustrated at having to play in 110 degree heat because it gave them an "advantage".

    Also - do we even know that Kubiak will talk to the players about this sort of thing? It's not like they will have formal team meetings or anything. Many players are out of town until they have to be back. Do you think he'll conduct phone interviews?

    I'm not clear on what this whole new coach process is going to be.

    Who are you Chris Mortensen. Do you treat these MB's as your "reliable Sources".

    The things you hear from the most of us are things we've heard in the past but forgot to write down "names and sources" for you unpaid intern types fishing for a story.

    Carr is going to get signed and or franchised to facilitate a trade we will get something in return for our lemon.

    nope .... that would be utter folly


    saying that players want Young as if they're unhappy with Carr deserves some backup .... did you hear it on TV, read it in the Chronicle, or overhear it in the line at Kroger's?

    I heard it in line @ Kroger. I was standing in line behind Walker, AJ, and Peek as they were stocking up on toilet paper and eggs getting ready for a visit to Carr's house.:stirpot:

    Guess they don't really like him after all, IMO

    Walker's quote comes from the Chronicle while Texans were watching the Rose Bowl. The date should be 1/06. (Something to the extent that Young "needs to be drafted number 1.")

    Can't say I've heard of Robinson saying anything.

    Gary Walker freaking out on Carr on the sideline says a lot to me and that they have made it known they want the Texans to take Young says even more.
