    I know I am blowing this way out of line, but... did anybody read the bowling story....


    http://www.houstontexans.com/news/detail.php?PRKey=2636&section=N Latest News


    It really seems like Kubes was making fun of Bennie Jop. for comming close to throwing the perfect game but not finishing. "He choked" I think were his exact words. I wonder if he is looking for a reason not to like Bennie since he might not be a perfect fit for his offense and might not be one of HIS players. Does anyone else see that or is it just me?

    This is the only thing I found in the article that Kubiak said about Joppru's bowling game/score...

    I don't think Kubiak has the luxury of using onlu "his" players. Why would a coach not want to utilize a talent just because they didn't draft him. I hope they're egos aren't that big because if they are that is a serious roadblock in the development of the team. In fact, if a coach can effectively use someone that another coach couldn't, that makes him look even better.:twocents:

    And it also said he said it with a smile, you are reading way too much into the comment. I don't think Kubes gives a rat's !@# what Bennie bowls, it's what he does on the field that counts.

    other than bowling....lol....all i have heard is praise about jop and how day in and day out he is busting his butt to try and make this team. nevertheless we have 6 tight ends vying for 3 maybe 4 spots on the roster.i hope he makes it.

    I don't know, this quote from Kubiak really bothers me:

    Do you think he's just preparing the fans for an injury plagued season? Do you think the team has been covering up injuries? I will continue to analyze these 10 words, without context, and let you know my conclusions. :rolleyes:

    LOL!

    I got to spread the rep but that's pretty funny.

    I think there should be a ban this season on parsing player and coach words.

    Does anybody know how the golf game went? I only ask because I want to correlate the Texans' ability to shoot birdies with their chances of beating the Eagles.

    I know I brought the pain upon myself, but still... if a coach feels a player can not handle pressure...

    Just part of the boring offseason. Thanks for the feedback.

    The AP reported in mid March that Jonathan Wells blew a shuffleboard game to Bryan Pittmann. He has never returned to the Reliant complex.

    I just heard Mckiney lost a pickup game of basketball to his brother Seth in their driveway. There goes our left guard. Once Kubes gets word that Steve choked, I think he will be on the waiver wire. Are there any guards available who can bowl like Earl Anthony , shoot hoops like Michael Jordan, and play shuffleboard as well as Wilford Brimley?

    Not to worry. Bennie limits his injuries to the football field.
