    I love this guy. I love the mentality that no ones job is safe and if you can't get the job done then I will find someone who can.

    There are going to many bright years ahead of us.

    WOW seems like he's a lil "uncomfortable with Carr", maybe, just maybe get Vick if he is available?!:yes:

    Houston, again.
    Sounds like they are expecting to bring in a vet and a rookie QB to compete with Carr. Sounded like they are going to get 1-2 high end FAs. Said He expect that Spencer would make it back, but nothing garanteed at this point. Reviewing everything, coaches, player, scheme.

    there is a reason atlanta never wins...it isn't their running staff, WR, defense, ST, and line. Now, that only means what?

    Did I hear him correctly that they aren't just bringing in someone to compete but someone capable of beating him (Carr) for the job? I'm going to go back and listen again. Thanks for the post by the way, good listen. :)

    He was asked if he would when drafting or FA look for someone with "sizzle"; i.e. someone who would get the fans excited just by his own presense. He said something to the effect that winning would provide the "sizzle".

    He said, I feel an obligation to build our football team into a championship caliber club.

    Hit the nail right on the head.

    Just some comments from the interview:

    He stated that they were not pleased or comfortable with David's play throughout the season. There were things that Gary worked with him on during the season and some things he improved on and some he didn't.

    They were going to try and get better at every position by bringing people for all positions to compete.

    He doesn't foresee us not bringing in a qb to add to the mix to come in not necessarily to compete but try and beat David out as well.

    I don't know who did the interview but he said:
    So you're saying there may be someone here giving David competition but you're not ready to say if Carr will be here and a part of the competition?

    Rick said that was a fair statement or something like that.

    Just posting some of the interview for those who can't get it.

    They have'nt said he's gone but Smith and Kubiak sure have'nt endorsed him either . In fact thats the harshest statements I've heard about Carr outside this board in five years .
