McNair wanted Carr, and got him. McNair wanted to salvage Carr and got Kubiak. Now, McNair has Phillips to salvage Kubiak. In some respects, McNair is very similar to Bud Adams. McNair could care less what the fans think. There is a check. McNair runs the franchise as he sees fit with a bit of an attitude. There is another check. Of course, McNair conducts himself very differently than Adams, but the end result is the same, a hobbled franchise and an owner that is just plain obstinate. What is ironic is that the firing of Bum Phillips by Adams was extremely painful to the fans and now it seems McNairs decision to hire Bums son, Wade, has similar feelings to the fans. The beginning of the end for Adams, was the firing of Bum, well see if the same comes around with McNair hiring Wade. Oh, the irony and the repeated mistakes are so clear on many levels. Just as the fans of Houston gave up on Adams, the same could happen to McNair. I sincerely hope this works. Good grief, the football fans of Houston deserve all the breaks of at least one season to become Super Bowl champs for all the pain and suffering we have gone through. I would gladly relish a Super Bowl victory and admit I was wrong about McNair, Kubiak, or whatever!!! But, I am very skeptical that will happen. The final analysis, it seems we are cursed by the football owners of our NFL Houston teams.
