I believe he will be the choice. If the Bronco's are the blueprint we are instilling, then this would be a good choice.
Rick Smith is interviewing for the Texans' GM job just because Kubiak is the HC?
He's already the GM in Denver . . . so what gives?
I believe Rick Smith is the assistant G.M.
No, bad choice. Kubiak needs a check and balance in place due to his inexperience, not a yes-man.
Hmmm....you think Megan "MANFULL" got ribbed growing up with a last night like that?
BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLEW
Originally, Casserly was supposed to be the check and balance on Dom. That turned out real well.
I'm for whatever works and until proven otherwise I'll keep saying that I don't beleve McNair wants a strong GM.
They just announced that Rick Smith would be on 610 this evening, 5-6.
Yeah for some reason that always makes me chuckle too. LOL
Smith is on 610 right now, and this guy is really articulate, almost lawyerly
articulate and not like a football guy at all. Very sharp. He seems confidant and very cool.
Came across very well. Said the right things. Obviously wants the job and got an invite back which is always a good sign. I think he's it.
The GM's are usually football guys who don't seem like football guys. These are some of the businessmen of football. Look at Casserly, I didn't think he looked like a football guy, but he knew his stuff. Looks can be decieving.
I just hope there's a lot of thought put into this. I'd hate to see a new GM become a roadblock to the Texans success. Maybe Smith would be a good choice if he sees things like Kubiak. Checks and balances can be counter productive sometimes. Glad it's not my choice.
I've been impressed with the moves that Kubiak is making.
So please don't mis-understand my question.
Why did we choose to emulate the Broncos?
Why not the Patriots?..
Maybe because the Broncos have had only 3 losing seasons in the last 23 years and Kubiak was available and Belichick wasn't.
And I was sure Reggie was it. We don't want to assume anything with the
Pretty remarkable accomplishment.
I would have to give most of the credit for that to ownership and not necessarily just to Shanny/Kubiak. I don't think that they have been there for the entire 23 years.
Hopefully Mr McNair will be as successfull from this point forward in running his franchise.
BTW Just a small difference in hiring Kubiak ( OC ) or Bellichick ( HC ).
My Irish beat the Texans to Bellichicks' OC.
No BoBo here. I like what the team has done so far* and expect to see a huge improvement in performance.
* not too sure about Rosenfels replacing Ragone though.
Kubiak was there for all but 3 of those 23 years as a player and a coach. Shanahan and Reeves were there for all but 2 of those 23 years. And yes, Pat Bolen is smart.
