When last we heard from Texans tackle Duane Brown, it happened before owner Bob McNair met with the team for the first time after his “[w]e can’t have the inmates running the prison” comments came to light. Brown wasn’t happy then, and he doesn’t seem to be happy now.

Via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Brown told reporters after Sunday’s game in Seattle that the meeting with McNair “didn’t go too well.” That’s to be expected, if McNair told players that he wasn’t referring to them but to the league office when he used the term “inmates.”

If the comment was never meant for the players, why did McNair even apologize? He should have simply said, “I wasn’t talking about the players, period.”
