    It seems like every thread evolves into the same thread centered on O'Brien hate and how this team sucks. I get tired of re-discussing the same thing over and over and over. It's like Ground Hog's Day. There is very little meaningful discussion anymore about the team or the players, and when it does occur it is soon downed out by O'Brien hate. I get that you hate O'Brien, I can understand why you don't like him, and respect your right to have an opinion. I am just tired of hearing it for the millionth time and would like to talk about other issues that concern this team.
    But do you have anything new to say about him, or just repeat or rephrase what you've said a hundred times before?

    Maverick is not one of the die-hard OB haters that ruins every thread

    We are talking about new things such as using two timeouts at the same time, giving a mediocre center top 5 pay and cutting the main slot corner with no backup plan

    he sucked last season too, healthy scratch in playoff. The ***** is around why he made the 53 and guaranteed 2019 salary as it looked like he still sucked just playing slot. Booty Calhoun must feel like he really sucked here being cut before Colvin

    Yet it all comes back to your hate of OB. Why not talk about the defense covering for a TD when only a FG was needed or Watt not putting up any numbers for the first time ever or if our line just needs time together or are they still bad.

    Here’s a novel idea you might also try positive things like the fact that Watson is scary good, our WRs making plays where they had no business making them, the fact we finally seem to have RBs that do more than just take a roster spot, actually going for it on 4th and inches instead of settling for a FG or hell the fact that we pushed a SB favorite to the very limit and made them win it on a 58 yard FG in their house under the bright lights.

    Tweet from @PatDStat: OB declines to talk about who will be the nickel. Adds that Lonnie Johnson has a chance to be in there more with a good week of practice. #Texans

    If I were coaching I wouldn’t want to give the opposing team any information either. Let them figure it out in game day.

    I'd like to think it was a RAC cut.

    Water over the damn that cannot be reclaimed.
    My question is what next?
    J.J. needs help. Since we wheelin' n dealin' now days, who should "they" target to beef up the pass rush?
    serious question.

    Colvin had to go. He was trash. I like moving on from bad decisions. Indecision will get you killed

    It's all speculation. I have been trying to figure out the power structure on Kirby for years, mainly based off of interviews of Bob, Cal, GMs, and HCs (and other coaches like Wade).

    All I know is this team has a board room mentality, one that was installed by Bob McNair when he founded the franchise. It was what he was comfortable with given his business background.

    I'm not convinced that Cal is pulling any strings in football operations, much less making individual player evaluations.

    Yep. I think it was a coaching staff decision with Cal's blessing.

    I'd like to know why they kept him on the roster so long, but those are questions that we should never expect to be answered.

    Our secondary is going to lose some games this year. . .again.

    No one good is available. Will have to wait for draft and free agency.

    Does Connor Barwin do it for you? Slim pickings otherwise. These pesky edge guys are pretty dang hard to find too go figure.

    Why are you ascribing these moves to Cal? For all we know, he's just sitting in a chair, eating a candy bar, and just nodding in agreement with OB. This looks like OB scapegoating the **** out of Brian Gaine by getting rid of every Gaine signing for any transgression, big or small.

    Seemed to work out well for Howie Roseman, shipped virtually every Chip Kelly signing, shortly there after won the Super Bowl. :trophy:

    And it still continues, just brought back DeSean Jackson, who Gaine never bothered to bring in after Fuller went down last season.

    Even with the 'Phins tanking?
    Surely there's someone on somebody's practice squad we can poach
    Surely "they" had someone in mind when they let Clowney go

    Hard to argue with cutting Colvin after his performance in New Orleans and basically costing us the game so good riddance. Don't know much about Gaines but how much worse could he be.
