    Just heard him talking. His take is that Reeves means that Cass and Capers are both gone. He thinks that Reeves is already looking at the defensive coordinator for San Diego (Wade Phillips), who is effective at the 3-4, and is the son of Bum Phillips (Oiler coach). He thinks that Reeves was hired because McNair likes Carr, and knwos that Reeves is good at building franchises around star quarterbacks (Elway).

    I actually think we will go in an offensive direction not a defensive direction.

    Ditto, I hope so. I don't think Wade Phillips is the answer anyway.

    I really think that Kubiak is the man for the job. Apparently the only knock on him the first time was that he wasn't good with the media. I don't care if our coach is Mr. Smooth with the media I want the guy who is gonna get the job done.

    I actually agree with you on this idea.

    Yeah, lol. I want to hear a coach say, "What's all this crap about execution? We didn't keep it close. We kicked their **** butts! We won because I'm a bleaping genius and knew what to do!" :redtowel:

    Clayton also said that he could see Reeves as the OC if I heard right, that was the part about building franchises around QB's. I don't think that would every happen, but I think that was Clayton's comment.

    I could however see Reeves as our GM.

    Yeah, I just watch it again, I had it on TIVO. Clayton said "he (Reeves) could maybe even be talked into taking the job (OC) himself" , building around QB and so on. Still seems very far fetched. Too good to be true in my mind. Especially if Phillips ended up at HC.

    I will be so psyched if we get Wade Phillips.

    Phillips seems to really know how to run an effective 3-4.

    The one thing I really like about Phillips is that he took Steve Foley, who are coaching staff didn't know what to do with and who absolutely tanked here, and made him into a probowl outside linebacker.

    I would love to have Kubiak as our HC. I don't care how he is with the media, let John Mcclain and John Lopez deal with him. :idea:

    why dont we just break the bank and get Kubiak as Head Coach and Phillips as DC :).. grab us another qualified OC.. like the guy from Kansas City or Philly.. and make Reeves GM.. or someone else qualified.. and get ready for the superbowl trophies to come rollin in :)

    I dont think we can offer Phillips a role equal to the one he is in now until his contract is up. You can offer him an improved role (HC) but not the same role or lower (DC).

    The guy responsible for the offense in KC is Dick Vermeil.

    Al Saunders, one of the best O-Cordinators in the game might say something about that

    Al Saunders.. yah thats who I was thinking of. Though Dick Vermeil did have alot to do with the offense as well. I think Saunders could come in and construct that same kind of offense here too... and I think it would work great for us... if we had an Oline.

    Wade Phillips as Head Coach makes great copy in the media, but I did not sign up for an unfrozen caveman defensive coordinator to come in as Head Coach and say, "Hello. My name is Wade Phillips, you fired my father. Prepare to die."

    D Coordinator I can live with for Wade. If the intention is to keep Carr we must hire the best offensive mind out there to lead this ship.
