    assuming the transcript from the media session will be on the official site before long, so we can post w/o Manfull's interference.

    For McNair, those are pretty harsh words. Honestly, that is a little surprising...

    If it is like a football game, he might consider a halftime adjustment with his defensive coordinator.

    Exactly, it's like pulling a player in the middle of the game that isn't producing.

    I think he reads Texans Talk and saw my signature pic had changed.

    I might be reaching there a bit but still....

    We're all taught to be patient .......and good things will happen. Well, I don't think that it would be too difficult for any of us to look back in our personal experiences and find many examples where patience only resulted in an unfortunate waste of time. McNair is probably lamenting this very fact.

    I like reading the transcipt and/or listen to interviews w/o the filter of a reporter telling what was said. Large amount of the stuff argued about on this board is because the quote came through a reporter filter versus a clean understanding of what was said.

    Yeah. Things can read totally differently if you read a quote alongside other quotes.

    For example, the other day someone made a comment on my blog that it was bad that Kubiak threw the DC under the bus. He thought that because he had read an RJ article that had the point of view that the DC needs to pack his bags and that Kubiak called him out.

    But then when I gave him a link to the transcript, the commenter had a completely different impression.

    Whether a story has a particular point of view or not, newspapers have limited space so a reporter HAS to pick and chose quotes. And what they find relevant may be different than what you find relevant.

    I have told the Texans staff how much the fans appreciate the transcripts being online and I hope they continue to do so.

    This team does need a shake up. A shake up in the form of a coach getting booted out the door.

    Any ideas as to whom?

    If I was the owner, this whole coaching staff would be feeling some serious pressure.

    I would be on the phone every day talking to Bill Cowher.

    Show me some spit!

    My guess is Richard Smith will be shown the door on december 29th. There's no way anybody can justify keeping him. I think from there McNair makes it clear to Kubiak that next year is playoffs or bust. For someone like McNair so say those types of things, some changes are definitely about to be made.

    Honestly, all this talk about changing coaches is great, but a new coach isn't going to change our #1 problem - Our QB gives the ball away. I suppose if I saw the play develop some questionable routes then maybe it could be the play calling, but the QB has just given the ball away stupidly. We can all say the coach should fix it, but how? I already know Sage and Schaub have been drilled about turnovers. If you listen to the players, they hem and haw around it, but they know the turnovers are coming from one spot, and they're not blaming the coaches.

    Richard Smith needs to go, though, because he's needed to go for some time, and it's obvious he can't take our defense to the next level from a scheme standpoint.

    I don't think McNair will fire Kubes unless it starts hurting his walet. His a business man not Jerry Jones or the other owners that really care about the football aspect.

    It seems the Texans are the opposite of the Steelers. More about money than football, at least at the top of the organization
