    No no no.

    He is making a point that if he is going to activate him on game day, with limited roster spots, he needs to know that he has a guy who can also play wide receiver.

    If he hated Holliday, he wouldn't mention this stuff. He only talks this sort of stuff to guys he wants to be able to keep.

    I'm putting the Marciano video up once I edit it down--Coach Joe likes to talk. Coach Joe loves Holliday.

    Ah, ok, I mis-interpreted then. Great job, by the way. I always like reading your stuff.

    Thanks Steph, that was terrific! And I challenge anyone to watch that and say that Gary has no public speaking skills. He had the audience in the palm of his hand from the first minute on.

    He makes you feel pretty good about the team.

    Why (Super Bowl)? Returner is important enough to be a stand alone position, if need be. Kubiak has no problem (Super Bowl) activating David Anderson for a few snaps per game, and he's useless on special teams. If injuries hit the WR position that hard (Super Bowl) in a game, Daniels or Casey could play the slot and play it well.

    Otherwise, (Super Bowl) good speech. And I can't stop saying Super Bowl.

    At risk of sounding dumb, You really think Daniels or Casey could play slot and be good at it? Have we ever lined them up in slot? Do any teams line their tight ends in the slot?

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Dallas Clark or Jason Whitten do it quite frequently. I'm sure those guys could handle it, given their abilities as route runners/pass catchers.

    Thanks TexansChick, that was a great speech. It shows Kubiak knows exactly what our issues are/were, and I believe he has a handle on it.

    I think the "Public speech issues" are all about Gary not saying what we want him to say after the games, and him saying the same things after games, "It's on me" "we weren't very good there" etc... Some of our fans wants him to do a Denny Greene or a Mike Singletary some times.

    Personally, I like how he doesn't use the media to "talk" to his players. Shows class IMHO.

    Dallas Clark is basically a slot receiver half the time. The mold of TE that's a bit lighter with great hands and good speed poses matchup nightmares. OD could definitely do it, and I'd be willing to bet Casey could as well.

    What is it with this hollow hype about the Super Bowl ? For Christ-sakes coach, win some games in your own divivison (unlike going 1-5 last year !), and get us into the playoffs once, just one time, then trash-talk SB if you want. In the meantime get real, and focus on your division oppponents like the season-opener in Reliant.

    I like Kubiak. But I wonder why we don't come out with more two tight-end sets, where the opposing D has to play their standard sets. Then move OD out to the slot. That will take one of the front seven out of the box, which should help us run the ball.

    Did you watch the speech? Did you read the transcript? He addressed those issues.

    Thanks for sharing TC!

    I would recommend folks not only watch, but listen, to the videos before putting finger to keyboard when contributing to this thread.

    What did Arizona have on it's resume before they appeared in the Super Bowl?


    yeah... NOTHING.

    We are either playing well, or we're not. We've got a very good chance of getting to the play-offs in 2010. If we get in, we've got a very good chance of getting to the Super Bowl. If we get to the Super Bowl, we've got a very good shot at winning it all.

    Besides, I'd rather my coach talk Super Bowl, instead of hyping up the opening game.

    You didn't even bother to watch the video... That's clear. He hyper-focused on precisely that: winning divisional games and getting to the playoffs. Specifically, he talked about how the first game of the season represents the three areas the team needs to improve on in order to reach their ultimate goal.

    I really don't understand fans like you. There is 23 minutes of video of your head coach giving a speech about the 2010 football season and all you have to do is click. Instead, you are uninspired to listen to him but inspired to type a cynical criticism of the coach/team on a message board about the video that you didn't bother to watch.

    Am I crazy or is that odd to other people as well?

    Did you listen to the actual clip? He didn't predict SB, he said the players have changed their break chant to SB.

    Didn't he say all that?
