10:42 AM ET 03.19 | Texans owner Bob McNair will attend the NFL's annual spring meetings at New Orleans next week confident the owners will eventually work out a new collective bargaining agreement with the players. "I think we're going to get it resolved before too much damage is done," McNair said Friday after returning to Houston from a business trip. "We're (owners) going to do everything we can to negotiate an agreement. "At some point in time, I think the players will recognize there's a way to come to a reasonable resolution and go back to work. I'm confident we will, but I don't know when."

Can't believe a single thing the owners are saying at this point.

He and Jerry Richardson should hang out more often. Maybe some of that reasonability would rub off on JR.

More confident then I am.

He also thinks Gary Kubiak is a good coach.

With the way both sides have been sniping at each other...I don't think so.

Comment of the day. Good work.

At some point both sides will realize they can't exist without each other, & will resolve this whole mess.

That said, millionaires & billionaires fighting over money when unemployment in many states is over 10% is revolting. Baseball lost me after the strike. The NFL may lose more fans over this than they thought.
