    I don't know if this has been posted- There is a bit more, but this is the high points.

    McNair said after watching Thursday's practice that he's as frustrated as anyone, but insists the team is close to a "monumental" breakthrough, as early as next season.

    "If I didn't feel we were on the right track, I'd be a lot more concerned about it," he said........McNair still believes in Carr and said all he needs is playmakers around him.

    McNair on the future of the Texans: "We're going to get it right. I have no doubt in my mind, we're going to win. We're going to be a big-time winner. And it's not going to be that long."

    I was shocked nobody was talking about it...it was all over sports radio earlier. He took a shot at VY by saying that one head coach refused to come if they drafted him supposedly...so it looks like we will have Carr here for 2007.

    Are we going to find out sometime down the road that Carr is McNair's bastard child?

    When he interviewd the coaches to replace Capers he had already picked up Carr's option so I'm sure that anyone who wanted that job was going to tell McNair they could fix his Carr. Today McNair was 100% behind Carr and their current plan so I'm convinced we will roll him out next year once again. We better start getting used to that idea.

    Bob said he interviewed seven coaching canidates and all said Carr could get them to a SB . In fact one guy said that if McNair was going to cut Carr and draft VY ... well he did'nt want the job .

    He blamed the previous staff for some errors in building the team . He said that they screwed up by getting rid of Sharper and Glenn because they provided leadership .

    carr is as good as any free agent we are gonna bring in. some people want a change just for a change. if we gonna bring in a free agent to groom a rookie we might draft this year might as well just keep carr and let him do the grooming.

    You want Carr grooming another QB? I can see it now: "OK, after you snap the ball, check down right away and dump it off to your safety valve..."

    oh yeah, and he also said that he thought it was a mistake to not include players over 30 on the first team.

    I would have done the same thing to guarantee me the job. Who wouldnt?!

    Bob wanted someone to tell him that he would fix Carr and make him into a badass qb. It clearly is not working and it won't happen here. imo.

    Even VYs HC Jeff Fisher didn't want him, as his preference was fellow USC alum Leinert.
    But the Budster saw VYs potential and hung in there for his guy.
    I think the Texans should retain the Budsters services to council them in the
    upcoming 2007 NFL college Draft.
