    yay, more bubblegum reporting from "The General" and his sidekick.

    Is McClain so cool that he needs to wear shades inside?

    And c'mon, John, saying we were two plays from having an undefeated home record goes both ways (as he is always quick to point out on his radio shows). We could also say we were just a couple of plays from being .500 at home, too. It all comes down to playing 60 minutes of good football, not 57 or 58.

    I apologize for the harshness of my post. I'm just tired of shallow reporting, especially this week of the Super Bowl. They get access that is elite, but then do very little with the chance. Heck, just pop into the forums for some serious football discussion before chatting with the Texans GM. JMO!

    It's a good point and Mathis has been injured the last 2 years.

    but, as i remember, Mathis' IR placement this year was to make roster room (please correct me if I am wrong).

    Mathis is exciteing to watch but Davis and Jones are both better recievers so release him and give Davis his salary.

    Agreed.

    I haven't gotten to see a RS interview. Was impressed with the man but the interview had the possibility of being way better. I'm willing to bet half the people on this board would've been better.

    Far as who needs to be retained.

    Davis is a no brainer.
    Demps would be a good sign long as he doesn't ask too much. I really thought he made a solid impact on the mentality of the secondary when he got into the starting lineup.
    Clark is nice to have, as well as Hutchins both provide nice depth.
    Dayne is is a solid backup but has to be used right.... unless we're looking in the draft or looking for someone faster in FA...resign him.

    Far as Mathis goes. Tender him a one year deal that doesn't cost much with incentive upside. I do love the idea of ok do we squib kick it, kick to Davis or Mathis?!

    John needs to go on a diet. The guy must weigh 500 pounds.

    Who is she? She looks and sounds like a high school intern. How can anyone take either one of these people serious?

    Having zero competition in a one-paper town will make you lazy and complacent. McClain hasn't been relevant for years now. He just keeps getting worse and worse, and his infatuation with Anna Megan is just embarassing. Hire young reporters with promise and talent, not just t*ts.

    Maybe this is 12 months in Iraq talking but Anna-Megan can talk about how gnomes farm for beets in the winter and she would have my undivided attention.

    Wow.
    Do you REALLY think Rick Smith is going to totally tip his hand as to who they're specifically targeting in F/A?? ...or EXACTLY who they're going to draft??

    In fact, I'm surprised they got Rick to name the few names that he did regarding F/As they want to hold on to. Hell, if I were Rick Smith wouldn't tip my hand at this stage of the game. That gives the F/As too much leverage during contract negotiations. Man, if you guys play poker like you expect Rick Smith to spill his guts, I'd love to sit at the table with you. Bring lots of money.

    Did you check the date on that interview? It was done back on Jan. 3rd, not during Superbowl week.

    And I see everyone saying the interview could have been much better but I didn't see any examples of questions that should have been asked. Remember, no GM worth a crap is gonna name specific names at this juncture in the year. F/A is a month or two away. Declaring your interest in a guy only drives up the price. So given that groundrule - i.e., don't tip your hand lest you unnecessarily raise the price of the player you want - what other questions would you guys have asked??

    I will listen and learn from you masters.

    Did I even imply that the interview was this week? :um:

    Your powers of assumption are simply amazing.

    Point being, after watching two weeks of lame reporting, this one is right up there with it, regardless of when the interview was conducted.

    With regards to questions, there are a number of areas that Rick Smith could have shed some light on. I don't have all the questions, but I have not spent any time thinking of it. Give me 24 hours and I could have a long list. And I don't do this for a living, which is [allegedly] left to the "professionals" that get PAID to be sports reporters.

    So you enjoy shallow reporting. Fine. But don't chastise those of us that would like a little depth from our sports section.
