    I think I just heard Channel 11 report that the Texans Bob McNair is having a news conference in a hour? Can anyone confirm what I heard? I guess it could only have to do with Kubiak.

    We were just taking bets over here over whether the Texans would wait until tomorrow.

    I wish we'd have finalized terms - I would've won. :D

    Would he really make the announcment this early? Seems like a slap in the face to do it only a couple hours after the game. I figured they would at least wait till Tuesday.

    Maybe it is an announcment regarding Bates and or Pariani?

    I would guess that KHOU.com would do it like they did with the VY press conference, but I don't see anything on the site yet.

    I'm monitoring SportsRadio610. They are at halftime on the Rockets now but I expect they would cut away or mention something in a sports flash update if it's something big. ESPN 790 is airing the Seahawks game. Fox TV is airing the game as well so Berman can't scoop anyone.

    Seems like the NFL would prefer if the Texans waited until there was not a playoff game going on.

    Well 740AM could air it as all they have on the air right now is Tom Martino reruns.

    No mention of anything on 610. I'm sure there's a licensing thing that requires them to broadcast the entire Rockets game even if they do suck.

    790 is pure national feed. There won't be anything on there...

    ESPN 790 just said they are carrying the news conference live.... not sure if you can get it on the stream but the out of towners might try espn790.com

    Looks like everyone is picking it up....

    Dave Dalotti comments:

    Public declaration of Kubiak as head coach forthcoming in a few minutes.

    Kubiak has yet to sign a contract but will be here by mid-week to meet the local media.

    That's a classy deal. Why didn't he call a press conference for halftime? He's a fool. Should wait until Monday like anybody else with an ounce of class would do.

    EDIT: OK, somehow the bad Nighthawk took over and wrote that he's a fool/ounce of class stuff. I totally reject myself. McNair has several ounces of class, but he still shouldn't have called a press conference today, and not in the middle of the NFC playoff game.

    Maybe it will allow them to act on Bates tonight before the Rams get him.


    What's funny is the radio feed on 790 is at least 2 or 3 seconds ahead of TV..... heard about that sack before I saw it...
