    From Brian Cushing's blog:

    Sadly, enough said........

    Is this just a Kubiak thing or does it happen all across the NFL? Or do we know?

    There will come a time when guys don't fall asleep in meetings that Brian Cushing attends.

    No wonder some guys love to play for Gary Kubiak...

    I have no idea how people who make millions of dollars a year can fall asleep in meetings with no repercussions. I'm surprised someone hasn't taken a leadership role in kicking some sleeping tail.

    Sure, they get paid millions of dollars, but that doesn't make them above being human. I'm a student, and technically the ONLY thing I have to do is go to class, learn, and do homework. Yet, I still fall asleep during class sometimes. Yeah, they're being paid millions. But being paid millions doesn't mean that you don't get tired.

    No offense, but c'mon man. I worked 40+ hours a week while going to night school for most of my college career and I can say that I never fell asleep in class. I wanted to on many occasions and in classes where the professor had obviously phoned it in, I really considered it. Never did it though, I always thought it was lazy and disrespectful.

    The best professors I had in school would never have tolerated someone falling asleep in their classroom and it surprises me that this actually goes on under Kubiaks watch or in the NFL at all.

    Jimmy Johnson cut John Roper for falling asleep in meetings.

    I cant believe Kubes is letting this kind of crap go on.

    It looks like Kubes gives "the kids" a little nap time after all their hard work. Probably gives them milk and cookies as well.

    Agreed. Finding cures are not that difficult. Someone should take pictures and have them regularly posted in the Chronicle. My guess is that all players quickly would spontaneously find themselves in bed by 9 P.M and sitting on tacks, if need be, to avoid somnolence during classroom activities.

    Same here. I worked through school and I worked nights. Never slept a wink and did not miss very many classes.

    This is why Kubes will be Former Houston Texans head coach GARY KUBIAK.

    I have been a big Kubes supporter but if this kind of stuff is going on he needs to be fired ASAP.

    You cant win if the players dont respect you.

    It's obvious Kubes has lost the players respect.

    I was thinking something along those lines a someone who teaches you jerks (nice word) who fall asleep in class. Way too may people assume that money essentailly changes their sense of who they are. Most of the people who are disciplined are that way making $7.00 an hour or 7 million dollars. Money does not matter as much as most of you think that it does.

    Well, Bob McNair has a rep for possessing the nicest and bestest NFL facilities.

    So it figures that each player's chair in the meeting rooms is probably a huge recliner with a built-in massage system.

    Attitude reflect leadership, and the leadership at the top is casual and folksy.

    Hell, Bob probably takes some of them fishing and lets them operate his model trains.

    College class? Infinitely different from a team meeting. Or a work meeting for that matter.

    If I were to fall asleep in a meeting I would have had my ass handed to me in seven different ways, and that's if I was allowed to keep my job. Not to mention I made what these NFL dudes probably find in their couch cushions any given week.

    How many of you work 12-4 hours a day 6 days a week, that's exactly the schedule they are on. I doubt this is bad as it sounds as after lunch when watching film in a dark room I would bet it's not an easy thing to stay awake. We only get a glimpse I'm sure someone comes over and wakes them.

    I doubt it's common, but hell I could be completely wrong.
