I really hope that the media shows a lot of what was said at the draft luncheon. (Lost of media there) The luncheon was fabu. Mark Vandermeer, CC and Kubiak spoke. (Also some president of some bank sponsoring the deal who wouldn't be quiet so they never got to our questions) Some brief thoughts as I gotta leave soon. 1. KUBIAK ROCKS!!! Bigtime. I am not easily impressed. Dude is impressive. Very low key funny. But at the same time when he talks he is actually saying stuff, not just platitudes. They had this function in the big room at the Westin--about twice as many folks showed up than was at the deal last year. And Kubiak just killed. I am ready to run through the brick wall for him. 2. Most interesting stuff he said was about competition. That the first things he noticed about the Texans way of doing stuff is that a. There wasn't enough depth; b. There wasn't enough competition--that the competition among players makes everyone better. That free agency and the draft were all about creating more competion throughout the team, not just in selected areas. He also explained why many of the additions would create competition. 3. He talked about gaining experience in the locker room and getting people used to winning. I almost fainted dead away when he was talking about what Moulds brings to the team. Specifically when he said that an experienced player like Moulds is just the guy you want to have helping Mathis out, because though Mathis did great on KR, we need Mathis to be a full time receiver for the team. 4. He talked about the passion the folks showed over the Vince and Reggie thing and that he likes that kind of passion because he is hoping that if we have that for the team, it can help us succeed. 5. Casserly used the word "see" at least 10 times. He cracks me up. 6. They showed highlights of our new draft picks. Sweet. Most important thing I learned at the draft luncheon. They are going to have a lot fewer outside practices this year. So training camp tickets are likely to be fairly hard to get. I think they were talking 3 outside evening practices. There was other stuff too. Lots of MB people there so help me out. (Sorry I missed the party pic). Sat next to AJ which was nice.
