"Said themselves unusual timing just crazy timing is what it is and we're we're all baffled were scratching our heads going what happened what happened because for the past year he's been the general manager for the last year Bill Brian was ask all the time. How's your relationship with Brian Gain are y'all working well together and they always said, yes, we are working well together but apparently not I'm not saying was that he wasn't good enough for the job. They pursued Nick Caserio from the Patriots Director of player personnel but then the Patriots leveled a tampering charge at the Texans and the Texans dropped the pursuit and Bill Bryant was gonNA takeover in the meantime because just the timing of when they fired the general manager and he's kind of held onto it, and then this past offseason, they finally gave him the the actual title. Well, let's look for a second at Bill O'Brien the coach his team has made the playoffs four out of six years. He's been in charge, but he's also got a reputation for some perplexing in game decision. Step to the. up. Is Denied. Perplexing decisions like you mentioned the most recent one obviously being the fake punt you went against the chiefs that kind of seemingly gave the chiefs all momentum if you just believe momentum. Game obviously the Texans collapsed from their homes with us. Fourth touchdown pass of the quarter. They have come all the way back from twenty four down and taken the lead in the last minute of the second quarter. And butger, it's not easy to win consistently enough out and whatever you want to say about him he has done that. But I think ultimately what kind of preventing him from being viewed by fans here in Houston and beyond that nationally as one of the really really good coaches is that he has not really made the next up. He has a reach the SEC title game he's not going. To receive praise for desk taken the team today, he south championship because he ever legitimate quarterback reallowed you'll think could win a super bowl to Shawn Watson and so when you're doing things that are kind of maximizing the window maximizing his chances, you're gonNA receive more criticism. Now it's all about everything they're doing around him and people are criticizing of those other moves that are happening around to show Watson. And what's Bill O'Brien standing with Deshaun, Watson, and the rest of the team in the Locker Room I. Think the most important thing from the locker is that he still has John Watson support. You might add up, but there's no doubt I love that play hard. dhaka-chittagong want to say you know through other media in the writing, but always on a quarterback. ME. John Lots of when he was asked about O'Brien after the chiefs lost he pretty adamantly supported. necessarily. Mean it's Shawn Watson the super happy with the deandre Hopkins strayed. You know he was really good friends with Hopkins and they want to clumps in dishonor tweeting cryptic rap legs after after the trade. But I don't think he's losing his quarterback. Necessarily I think John Wants to recognize that he needs to be a useful quarterback to be the right sort of leader for the team. He can't really be bagging on the coach and so i. Think he's still has shown a lot support and at the end of the day has probably the most important thing. So it's pretty clear that his personality can cause friction with some people around him and he's made a number of moves that have been widely questioned. How secure is Bill O'Brien's job you know I would say very bill Brian Stores. Three seasons left on his contract and you know he's been given the ability to mortgage draft picks. Trade Away Stars, Texans are all in right now but you feel like they've really compromise the future with some of those moves. Is that what you're saying? Yeah, I definitely do plus I do think it's probably a little rich to pay two first round picks a third round pick to the Miami Dolphins for you know for Laremy Tunsil who has potential to be that like franchise left tackle okay. But he hasn't lived up to his top ten. Pick billing yet, I always get the questions fans of how long to low Ryan's GonNa get fired but the truth is I don't think it's any time. Soon, I mean because at the end of the day, especially with the expanded playoff field, the Texans are gonNA keep prime making the playoffs, Shawn Watson, their quarterback in staying healthy, and that's hard to fire guy is gonNA keep making the playoffs and Bill Brian is talking to reporters the series said. He recognizes that these things are heavily criticized. We definitely have to coach better. Than we didn't do enough. To put our guys in good good enough positions to make place. We got it. We definitely have to. Do, a better, job coaching do you can tell them kind of his answers that he knows that he has very high approval rating right now but he's not you know you need years to figure this out to judge this properly, and maybe that's so but I think that on the other end, how realistic is on Sports? How often do we actually exercise years worth of patients to to judge anyone for anything on finally Erin just Bill O'Brien? Have too much power. We'll see in the years to come but right now I would say I mean, he's built a competitive team. He's a good coach and all that but I think at the end of the day it's just never really probably the most productive or efficient way to build a team when you have one guy who's simultaneously looking out for the short and long term needs of the team, and that's not necessarily so much knock on him as it is just it's not really the most functional way of doing. Well. Aaron thank you so much for Brady Dowd becks. You can follow Aaron Reece's coverage of the Houston. Texans. At the Athletic Dot Com. Since this story first aired Bill O'Brien has been fired. An Romeo Cornell has taken over as the interim head coach from wondering athletic I'm can beat the Davidson we'll.

So Erin at the start of this off season, the Texans traded all pro receiver deandre Hopkins to the cardinals. What was the reaction to this trade I? Think people were were stunned on the head just brought by the corridor boost. Are you? Serious. The idea tree, the Hopkins while just on its face is an unlikable move and they decided you know you can't afford deandre Hopkins, which is what Bill Grant said the training is not so unreasonable. It's what they got back to return I'm pretty surprised. Obviously, David Johnson really hasn't had much of an impact in. Arizona. In recent memory and Deandre Hopkins has in Houston. So I think you're Hopkins says quite a few more good years and could justify the big salary and extension is GonNa get it from the cardinals and I, have my doubts that David Johnson will have a resurgence in Houston thirty is seemingly declining is average three point seven yards per carry the past two seasons. I think the reaction National League ride is that like every GM should call Bill Bryant and see if they can get jj Y for a fifth round pick like that. Maybe you'll try to Shawn Watson crazy is gonNA happen like. Watson's not gonNA WANNA sign a contract extension all those things but it has created this kind of aura. This idea that you know anything on the tape when it comes to this team because really they are a lot of ways defying the conventional views what is value in this league? While there's also been a lot of talk that this trade went down because of a personality clash between O'Brien and his star receiver. I was a bit of a power struggle there because Bill O'Brien thought coach O'Brien thought he had too much influence over the locker room. You know he got into talking about the Andre Hopkins Deandre. Hopkins. Has a few kids and from different women and he said, you know he told the Andre He Doesn't like that he has his baby mamas around sometimes and from that I think the relationship just went back and thus Gander Hopkins's on the record with us is saying you know I had no relationship with Villa Brian there's a very obvious ill-will in between the two guys and I think that that definitely was a driving force and it kind of adds to this narrative again of why people are upset with Bill Ryan the personality. As, much as the trade itself because this is now the second year in a row where he has parted ways with a really talented player and traded him for less than the perceived value and cloudy being the other and so now you get basically pennies on the dollar back for this guy who's going to go and instantly when we look at this from Seattle's perspective, it's amazing when a player that Houston might not be sure. Of all the sudden goes to a team like the Seahawks we look at their Oh yeah. This helps them a lot. They'll be one of the favourite and that's another deal work. The contract demands is one thing but it comes to be question of the guy not fitting into this team Culture Bill Ryan is choosing to establish and if so what is that culture really do towards winning is actually aiding and building a better football to. We've all seen Bill O'Brien's TV personality loved the ninety guys we have the group of guys the way you come to work but like today Jay Joe, he's busting my balls because he's looking for juice from me that we're some juice from you guys like how about you guys bring some juice in fact today you know what I want. I want the coaches to just coach individual and then just shut the door and let these guys play. What is he liked to deal With he can't be that kind of graph that you see in those moments you know there's kind of an infamous clip of him after one of their AFC south championships were reporters question begins by saying you know it wasn't necessarily the prettiest thing bill. Obviously, it wasn't the prettiest of games doesn't matter. Brian but AFC south champions two years in a row. Brian Yeah. But you guys are back in doesn't matter what it looked like back in the playoffs looking forward to the playoffs. In. But you know he he isn't just that sort of guy I mean deal the mammals every day during the season and he respects question kind of feels like there was some thought put into it. He can. He can give a thoughtful answer and but I think that that one version of them that wants persona that has built up through those press conference tirades or those those hard knock moments, and then also these traits all aided in this kind of vision of him as as this guy is kind of operating Solo and has just totally unreasonable and we'll blow of anyone and. The truth is somewhere in the middle well bill. O'Brien is also on a very short list of NFL coaches who also hold the title of General. Manager how did he end up in this rare position of power before I started covering the team had reported friction with General Manager Rick. Smith had been over at the team a long time and ultimately Rick Smith wasn't fired he. He stepped away to care for his wife have breast cancer and and it was supposed to be leave absence but he you know he never retard they brought in another general manager, Brian Gain who was kind of viewed as a O'Brien's Guy They signed matching deals that their contracts with run concurrent to one another lasting say amount of time and Brian game only lasted a season before he was fired really big story not only big news but also they.

"Did get that great email about the guy who's wife supported him on the Sopranos Tour I was wondering what about the bottom being satin dolls was number seven on the list that is a good wife looking after him making sure he got the ultimate Sopranos tour. As far as the question, this week comes from Brandon I. Love the analysis of the giants organization. I know they don't the same fan based nationally as giants what are your thoughts on the issues and the broncos organization, the ongoing battle, the Boleyn family for control and how the trust is protected John Elway and Joe Ellis Mike Well, I think John has complete. John's almost acting like the owner as they fight for control and no one's GonNa tell. What to do I, mean you talk about leading with fear you know John doesn't listen to very few very many people and the product on the field hasn't been. You know he's been through what he had John Fox and then you know they they won the Super Bowl with his friend Gary Kubiak and Gary and him kind of had a break up. And then they come back with with VIC and you know we'll see where it goes. But I I don't know if they're to me. The problem that John has is the problem that always was on his side as a player. You know when you played in when you played in the West you always how are we going to be Denver with elway now always gotta deal with how we GONNA be can't city with Mahomes Shinno he's live in a world everybody else used to live and I don't know if he set his team up to beat them I. Don't know if his team set up the beat them and as they. Have this power struggle going on. John is essentially the owner and no one's GONNA walk in there and say John, I don't think you're doing a very good job. I'll think drafted well because I think other than John has able to solve the quarterback parts of his team are really good but unsolved the quarterback that's the story when it comes the Denver Broncos as we close up shop here I just WANNA throw a few names jeremic as I mentioned on my work with the network I was hosting. Rounds Two through seven I have a newfound respect by the way anybody who does draft sport has NFL NBA Mlb. It's a lot of work going on the Research Department is unbelievable. They give me so many nuggets on each of these guys you know they're playing in the cage, the Swiss elite league the Finns obvious had all the Canadians are at least leagues in the cities that they're from. But just for amusement here, I'm going to end with three names what might try to pronounce spell them for. The audience here the first name is pretty easy to Shaquir.

"Ben Is played as well as the record indicates. I think the eagles defense will give him a little bit of trouble. Now I think the steelers they've got to be able to block the two ends on the steelers if they're going to move the ball and I think that's going to be the biggest challenge. But what I like about this game is interesting when you follow the money right? So there's been twenty-seven percent of the bets have been put in on the Eagles twenty one percent of the money is only on the eagles. So everybody's betting the steelers in this game yet the. Lines not moving that tells US significant alliance at seven. They don't WanNa move the line of seven and a half. They don't want to give you the hook and they can't move it down because it got too much money. So I'm GonNa take the seven here I have a I have a sense by Sunday this line on move to six and a half I, think you gotta get it at seven right now today and I like the Eagles to cover I. Don't know if they're gonNa win but you know eighty this this this weekend. There's so many games. If you just if you wanted to just say you know what I'm GonNA throw caution to the wind here and I'm just GonNa take all the road. Barker's the dogs on the road. The giants are nine and a half point dogs the Bengals who my number say you should take a twelve and a half point dogs phileas seven point dock Miami who I really love I think Miami's a good play to I'm not picking it but there are nine and a half point dog. There's four you could take four dogs and Vegas is at twelve point. You could take all those points and I'd be shocked if you didn't go four one it's interesting and like you said, the play, the numbers, right? Those are some numbers as if all the money that's always the key to that point, we'll get to the bengals the second you just mentioned, but the Vikings, the seahawks listen Minnesota's one of the three they finally come up with the win they beat the Texans, the Seahawks, Russell, Wilson's the MVP the league but their. Defense is just brutal. They give up so much yardage sexy kinda surprising. Therefore, no is this another instance where when you look at the numbers, you might pick the Vikings Yeah I made my number say take the Vikings. My head says I refused to go against Russell Wilson, and this is one of those games were Minnesota has a low ticket count and they have high money which is always a good game to play you WanNa do that all the time that's that's the side you wanna be on low ticket high money and and so. You know I think that Minnesota is a little bit like Dallas in the sense they're really good on offense they can move the ball Dow coke spin station I mean running behind a bad offensive line the way he's been running I'm Gary Kubiak are really good run game schemer. He can do it as well as anybody but the defense of Minnesota I think is problematic I think Seattle will move the football I'm waiting for a Seattle letdown at some point but the way Russell Wilson's plan my body you. Know? He's sixteen touchdown passes in the first weeks. I don't know how you go against if I were to play this game I would play. Seattle because even though my numbers say go the other way I'm never going against Russell Wilson Amen to that and the last one, the bengals a one two in one taking on the Baltimore Ravens Joe. Nixon we talked with this for the season started he got paid top five running back right now in football and Joe Borough goes against Lamar Jackson again, reiterate the. US At twelve and a half that's a big line. That's where the bengals could be the pick. Right right. So the last two times the bengals have played in. Baltimore. So the last in the last ten games in this series, the records five and five. Okay and the last two times since he's played in Baltimore, they've been three point, nine, six point games I mean there's always the divisional rivals or closer than you think and I think this is where the lines are a little bit in favor of can take the dog especially in divisional rivalries and in this one in Cincinnati, you know I mean the numbers are the numbers are twelve and a half thirteen mile numbers are seven I have a seven point five, six pray for this game. I know another person who has a five point spread for this game you know so I think clearly do I think Baltimore, wins yet. Do I think Cincinnati came back door cover absolutely and yet you know and because they've always played them close it's always been a close game. So you know it's like like New York and Dallas right like you see. McCarthy's they're on the sideline. This is his first time playing against an NFC east. You know he's probably asking himself in his malone voice. What are you prepared to do today to the team? Could you imagine if he got in front of team dressed like Sean connery and says, what are what are you prepared to do? What are you prepared to do? You know if the giants pull a knife, we're going to pull a gun. You know if he says, what are yours to the hospital we got it. Could you imagine if he did that and even have that you know the rosary being credited have a rosary in front of him and then he would walk the beat goes out there and just walk the beach anyway I. Think these rivalries are a huge right I think they're huge and. And I think the players sense it, you know we got to beat the giants. We gotta beat the cowboys. We've got beat the eagles. We gotTA BEAT The Washington football team so. I think those spreads are an especially in week five of the season when the season's over in these games are coming on I. Don't think it matters as much. I don't think the rivalries are important but I do think they are now. All right. Good stuff. So the picks giants Colts Eagles Vikings. Bengals. As you said, some of those are not your official pigs but those the ones at least when you look at the lives, my three official ones are the giants, the Eagles and.

"Hundred, nine with it. Right terrorism picks and talk about some football games. Last week overall should say, Mike Your Ford five against the spread. How're the picks last week? Iowa's one in one last week of the chargers just WANNA kill Anthony Land like seriously like can we subcontract like for four hours? You don't want Sunday can we dislike like? You Know I. Mean he cost me I should a push, but you know I'll take it I think now. With four weeks to go. At we my dad data seems to be pretty good I and I, and I've kind of I've got to stop going against what my numbers say last week I went with Detroit because the money was flowing to Detroit at my number said take New Orleans so I'll tell myself but you know I, think this week will be a better week. I hope it will be I think there's a lot of lines this week where the lines are high and you know it's going to be interesting to see how those line highlights translate. Are there that many dominant teams in the NFL? Are we going to see a little bit more of a cluster? Those are the questions. When it comes to dominant teams. Well, let's the teams that are the least coveted that'd be the own for giants against the cowboys at one three, listen these are two terrible team's the cowboys. It's interesting. You say, well, you know they've got they've got this should be on four as united said, they should've lost the game against the Falcons and the giants are miserable. How do you break down this one look I thought the giants played their asses off last week I mean, you know as bad as they are on offense and God they are bad. I mean Jesus Christ I mean Jason Garrett's lucky. I ain't the president of the giants because I'm GonNa tell you what? This is all I can't stand. I. would be like Popeye, this is all I can stands and I can't stand more on that. Why would be dislike enough please ghetto enough I mean like at some point, do something to help this quarterback out motion. You know get it somewhere where he's not really you know. When people talk about Daniel Jones staring down receivers he did last year too. But in Pat Shurmur offense, it was more of a triangle passing game. So when he was staring down, he was staring down the triangle. Staring down a receiver. You know you need you need a little bit more on that I mean for me what's shocking? You site all those numbers I think always this game is close even when the teams are bad but for the cowboys to be really an Owen fourteen, let's face it. There are no one fourteen the record says they're one and three but there no fourteen to be a nine and a half point favorite against a team that's Oh and four. I mean they're both too bad teams and my line says this should be about a six six point line I'm going to get nine and a half in this game I'm GonNa take the giants every time I'm GonNa, take it with. them all the way to I. Think the giants will I think they'll actually move the football better on the cowboys are they they always play this game close? I want to take the giants in this one. Once again, we're picking with the spread for those listening. We have heartily listing really the giants be the cowboys listening said because the spread will pick the giants like you said, the couch are getting nine and a half the coal right now are three and one they're taking on the browns that are three and one Indianapolis goes maybe team we haven't talked. About a lot Mike, you look at their defense. Phillip. Rivers thirty years of age trying to get things done. Obviously Frank Reich. So great coach. The Cleveland Browns have used their running game they're running game has been huge for the last few weeks. Nick in particular has been tremendous. What do you think in this match couple teams that are three and one right now in the AFC colts Brown's well I mean look the the brownies have been good right so they beat they come back they they win a Thursday night game against Cincinnati good game they come back beat. A Bad Washington team, they go back, beat beat a bad cl- Dallas team with I thought last week. Cleveland should been the favourite in that game and this week you know the line is pretty much a pick em line. You could you're better off going to the money line here. If you're going to bet this game, it's it's really a pickup line. So my numbers say it should be a five point. I think India's one of the best untold stories they lost Jacksonville in the opener, but their defense has really played well and they've played the run well. They've played physical I. Worry About Philip Rivers make mistakes but I think you could throw the ball attic if you can block Myles Garrett which I think Indianapolis can that I think you can throw the ball on the brownies and I like India's game a lot. You know I it sets up and he's in the IT sets a perfect for me because I like a low ticket count with high money. The colts have that I like less than twenty five percent of the money coming in in these got that. So I'm going with Indian this game I like. indie As the winner of this game. All right. Cold stairs the pick the eagles are one to one. They take on a three zero. Pittsburgh steelers team give the Eagles and Doug Pearson credit. They had some Moxie they're on the road against San Francisco. Clearly Nick mullins play that great and I couldn't even know who the guys are on the eagles offense Fordham gets the big touchdown there from went as they go on, hang off the late now can they actually beaten Mike Tomlin and the steelers on the? Road steelers defensive team. Really good. This year Mike you look at Saks they put a lot of pressure on the quarterback that's not good news. THE EAGLES CONSIDERING THAT DEPLETED OFFENSIVE LINE and Carson Wentz has had some issues with turnovers. No doubt and you know look I I don't know if the Eagles can win this game but I think it's my number say it should be a four point game getting seven and Philadelphia I'll take those seven points I think philly will put some pressure a big Ben..

But even to an untrained eye, this year's own three started offered little promise they never came together on the field the Texans look compartmentalized they looked as if they're going through the motions on the field nothing was in Sync O'Brien stop calling plays to become. Other teams overseer essentially becoming a true head coach, which means he was taking on the role of the chief problem solver O'Brien needed to make sure his team was doing the essential details to give them the best chance to win that rule was this ultimate is undoing Mike to take on too much work and therefore couldn't take care of everything I think what I tried to express in that column in the daily coaches. When you have a personality that is tends to fly off the handle quickly you know I just I'm sorry I have a temporary I can't control my temper well as a leader you've got to try to control your temper because especially when you become the head of the whole company, it's one thing to be a fiery leader and be with your players the billy Martin kind of guy you know we saw billy Martin's rain some. Some some of the young listeners on this don't know who billy Martin is billy. Martin was the manager of the Yankees and you know he always George Steinbrenner fired him and bring him back fire because his personality was such that he wouldn't. The players would kind of get tired of hearing his message and after a while they lose interest but he would always go to a team make the team better initially because of that personality. And Billy's personality is such that you know he's fiery he's emotional. He's going to wear his heart on sleeve and when you become the chief executive officer of a company, you can't lead with fear and people say, well, Vince Lombardi led with feared. No, he really did if you read the daily coach. Or. You Read my column the when you which breaks leading with fear Lombardi did none of those things he'd leave with fear most great coaches can't you can't lead with fair because when you lead with fair, you're you you have no sustainability you're not going to be at the player's GonNa eventually to new out it's like anything you can't yell at someone all the time eventually they get tired of like, I'm fed up with it and I think the way the Texans played this year and I went back and watched the Minnesota game and it was ugly I mean first of all the last of the National Football League rushes incompletions on defense. On offense, there are thirty first on defense I mean, they have zero execution they're playing with zero execution, the offensive line from the first game of the season. With guys that they've got investments in Howard and tons, Zoa, tackle played horrible Zach Fulton at right guard was just horrible in the opening game you know and there was no real attention to detail. There was no real. You can hear the messaging wasn't being hurt now whether billy got tired or the players got tired of billy I don't know there's certainly a lot. Of discussions about on the field findings and and and I could see there could be tremendous disagreements for billy as he sits back the hardest thing for most guys leave the Bella check tree is defined guys that understand the factory why do you think bill has nothing but a bunch of young coaches working for him up there because bill would rather train than retrain Bill Bill. Doesn't want to hear somebody come in and give him ideas. Bills got plenty of ideas you know. But in the NFL, it's hard to get an organization to change into the ballot check and model or the New England model because you can't get everybody on the same page and I think if Billy Wright's down what happened to him at Houston I. Think he's probably going to say I could never find the right combination of people and I could never. Train, the people that's the key thing bill has an ability to train people we did in Cleveland. That's why all those that's why they made a documentary. Cleveland Ninety, five, all these guys that we trained in Cleveland gone on to have great careers but none of them when they walked through the building and Cleveland, had any idea about football truly they learned the certain way they learned the certain way and so they didn't come in and say, Oh, this sucks you know. And the ones that did we got rid of them and they were young enough to go away. So I think you know look I think when you fire a coach after four games. There's real problems and I think McNair how to solve the issues. Now where they go from here, I have no idea today hire be enemy I mean you know someone's going to hire enemy this off season two, they hire eric the enemy and give them a A. Give them a gentle manager to work with them. I. Think the one thing of I'm cow McNair I WANNA, make sure that there's a partnership between whomever I hire and from the captain obvious file whether they hire has to help quarterback Shawn Watson continued to develop continue to be the star. This team gave them a ton of money. So obviously, he has to be the guy that they build around. You did point on the column like they don't have a first or second round pick in the draft. So you do a good team I mean I it surprise when you see own for you. So this is not inconceivable, but it's awfully unlikely like literally things have had to go seriously awry for this of talent. This they won four if see South Division titles and six years. Okay. The good season year go to go this bad this quickly, you'd have to hope hey, very quickly you can turn around. That direction Romi Cornell clearly caretaker interim guy whoever they hire knows there is talent on this roster. That's the good news. There is a Lotta talent and it's got to come together and I have a feeling. It will this weekend. You know I have a feeling that you know the players our now look I think they're really bad on defense I think they got to improve defensively they don't have enough town on defense. There's no doubt but there's no excuse for this team score points I mean between cooks. And will fuller when he's healthy with Watson's got to play better I mean I loved the Shawn Watson. But after four weeks to Shawn Watson has played like the guy who should be in the forty million dollar club. You can't deny that you cannot deny that there's a disconnect between watch it and what's going on. So there you have to you have to, he has to play better. No.

"No doubt and the biggest problem here is is people that make the argument that it's too soon to take haskins out of the game are really talking about the sunk cost fallacy. That's basically what they're saying, and this is the same people that will probably go on their businesses and make bad decisions because they feel like they have an. Investment right so you know, yes, he is a first round pick. Yes. We paid them a lot of money. Yes. He's a huge asset, but if he's not if it's if he's not any good, all those things don't matter nothing matters today. In fact, what what most organizations should do is once the draft is over, they should remove the draft status, the pedigree from the player. And just evaluate every single guy as if they were all college free agents. and. If you could do that all my guy, would you have upside down? Evaluation. Your organization would look completely different, but but sunk cost is really you know it becomes. To most NFL people as they don't even think about the sunk cost they think oh. My God we've got this investment. We've gotta make this investment work. You're looking at it the wrong way just you did it's the you've already paid the Piper it's over. If it's a mistake, you can't make the same mistake twice. So people that are arguing that Haskins should have more time and I would be one of those people to argue because thirteen games to me isn't enough however however, what I saw of him at Ohio state was I saw a quarterback that was unable to throw the ball until the receiver was open. And the only way he was most effective throwing the football was when he had time in the pocket which he did it. Oh, how state the receiver was open he throw it in the NFL he has most of his success when you can scheme a play action pass where it's a little bit jared Goff you had faked the hand off you separate the defense and you tell him either throw the ball here or throw it there. Right either here or there or that's it, and if it's not open on the play action, then he then the play breaks down but he doesn't have that anticipatory gene. It's Mason Rudolph the same thing that happened to me real. It's what I call. It's a category of talent in college football because as parcells once said, we can only take what they give us. Well, they're giving a seven on seven quarterbacks. They're giving US guys that stand back there that can throw it in the big twelve. We get a bunch of them, the Brandon this was Brandon Weeden is problem when I was in Cleveland, he had no anticipation to his throws and you can't fix that there's no way you could fix that like the ducks ter- is better than Mason Rudolph because the doctor has that. Gee. Now the doctor doesn't have enough talent. To be able to play in the NFL but he has that gene to throw anticipatory throws he does have that. Haskins, doesn't have that. So you can start can work with them for twenty games work for forty games. That's not gonNA. Change Jacoby has the same problem with the difference between Jacobean Dwayne Haskins. Haskins is a worker Haskins is in a leader to Kobe's one of the greatest kids of all time you would love Jacoby every every father would love to have a son like Jacoby. He's the tremendous human being tremendous. His mother deserves so much. Credit for raising him unbelievable kit. However, that being said, you know he has the problem where if it's scripted correctly, it doesn't go good. He works his way through it and he can help teams win as backup I'm not sure he's a starter, but Haskins don't get that element. You don't get that extra work ethic. You don't get that I'm in this thing all you. Hey, I'm a superstar I went to Ohio, state, and the owner loves me. At. Don't fly I liked the analogy you'd use before goth which you can use your Haskins said you know if you can check the runners at first and third than he's five otherwise vista make moves and it's different and to your point about saying well, we drafted him so high we had this investment by Frank Keith Law Great Baseball writer went to Harvard. He's sunk cost fallacy you often seed in sports we. Pay This guy gigantic contract even though he's a shell of what he once was. Let's keep trotting and polls hitting fourth of the angels are Miguel Cabrera for the Tigers or remembered as you talked about previously, there's other players Jj watt should me playing all the time you go out we're paying this much money. Therefore, let's get the value out of no let's actually the wrong thing to do sunk. Cost Fallacy does or Why the biggest reason Rivera's making this move is because he knows the divisions up for grabs how? This division is the NFC is you know it's bad, right? I want to give you a couple of stats folks to really understand just how horrid it is eagles cowboys, Washington, and the giants combined three, twelve and one since the merger in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy or the eighty AFC central three of thirteen got off to a worse start. Here's a couple more for you before we dive in even further the eagles are in first place despite the fact they've run three plays all season while leading in the fourth quarter. Yes we're into week five right now and. Since divisional realignment in two, thousand and two no division has one fewer than twenty two games in a season the NFC east only to win at least eight more non division games to break that record. No matter what happens Mike One of these teams GonNa win the division maybe the cowboys the eagles but it's embarrassing and I'm not saying if the realignment I'm not necessarily saying okay changes system and receipt it but like there's going to be an NFC team that get screwed and doesn't make the plaza go are you serious this joke of team the eagles going to be Seven eight, one of the play offs is terrible. It's horrible and you know going back to sunk cost I. think this is really important to understand to to really know what we're dealing with sunk cost is is is it affects all of us in our life. It's like when I go to a buffet and I pay, you know go to a brunch and you pay fifty dollars what what's the first thing you say bring the New York? Times. City. We're going to read the we're GonNa get our money's worth we overeat right? That's a sunk cost. You've you've already paid the money, right but now you Think, you're GONNA, get your money's worth or if you're a person who paid you know like, say I wanna go see a concert and I put twenty bucks to go see the concert I've already paid the money but for me to get there, I have to go through a blizzard to drive there almost have to risk my life. Is it worth it? You know yeah, I'm GonNa do it because I put the twenty th it's already sunk cost and here's what's fascinating people that have researched sunk costs. There's only three people there's only three species on the planet that invest in sunk cost rats, mice, and humans. That is tremendous three blind mice, rats which are. Just a horror in New York City tenement buildings in humans. This is where it cubs. It's amazing. This we wanNA, talk about the Texans because this was a surprise I knew Bill O'Brien may be in trouble. Didn't they happened this quickly owned four start which nobody saw coming and he's the head coach the GM. And he's gone an associate head coach. Romeo Cornell is now the team's interim head coach. So the McNair family decide to make the move after Texans fault the Vikings this comes after listening Bill Brown was Named the GM in. January and he made that now controversial move some might say trading John Hopkins to the cardinals for running back David Johnson in a second round pick so far Johnson is three point eight, six yards per rush hopkins leads the NFL.

"Thought I was dead. Say just imagine like how high the frequency is and the alarm her face, and like you said, you have no idea what's happening like well, let's go on looking. Good. No idea I just wanted to get the hell out of there and eat spice cookies that's all I was trying to do. Somebody wants to get the hell out of here. Is Dwayne Haskins because it has worked out right now? The Washington. Football Team, Ron. Rivera, you know it's been a great story obviously Ron is battling cancer and you know he's a tough guy who's well respected in the game and and Shirley has a lot of impact what he's done with the Carolina Panthers. Now with Washington Hey, listen all those good feelings aside we're trying to win here. Okay. We're a one in three team. The division absolutely stinks we're going to give you some stats. Honestly it's almost mind boggling to believe how bad the division is but my he says enough's enough benching gain. Haskins. Kyle out on the starting quarterback Sunday's game against the rams were. Very used to have an eye on the future with Haskins but now it's clearly knows you know what this guy he can't win right now haskins his actually another third stringer Alex Smith is now in the number to role maybe surprising to some when it came. But at the same time, Allen is a guy that Ron Rivera no spent two years in Carolina. Under Ron. Rivera and the current wash, an offensive coordinator Scott Turner I know from the beginning you more big onto Wayne Haskins what happened here well, a couple of things. So let's go. Let's go back through with a little bit here. So you know Schneider is at wit's end righty fires the punter the former general manager I refuse to say his name you know. When he needs to clean out his organization and so he wants to hire somebody with credibility somebody who's one and Rivera's out there and so I'm sure in the meeting between Rivera and Schneider who's also chief scout of the Washington football team right because the the reason Haskins was the fifteenth pick. Overall the draft was one woman only doing was was stance snyder he scouted on, he liked him he went to his kids high school Yada Yada all that stuff so. You know. And so in that meeting now, this is just just me understanding the League An- and how things work but in that meeting, Rivera had a say to Dan Dan look. You know you can't tie me down to Haskins because the perception of the League about Haskins before the draft wasn't that good and let me just give you a side story here. So every season I go out. To the Mamba Academy and I would always speak to third draft eligible players about what it was gonna be like to get interviewed, how to interview how to present yourself to NFL teams all that stuff. So the one year I went out there in one thousand nine, the last time I actually was out there because of Covid I I went out there and spend time, and of course, Haskins was training there and they were excited to have haskins because they felt like he was going to be a first round pick so. We have meetings set at four o'clock who shows up at four twenty Haskins. So he starts to get engaged in the meeting. He's got his handler with. Great you know, and so they say it'd be tomorrow. Can we meet privately with you and I said, sure, I'm here for you. So tell me when you WanNa do it hey, habit of we do at ten thirty S A perfect I? Don't leave until I think three o'clock that afternoon or I'd left the next morning. At. Ten o'clock comes rolling around no haskins eleven o'clock comes around. No House gets like he just blew me off like like that's really stupid like that's really stupid because I got a big mouth and I talk to people in the league and that's not really good for you. You can't think about that so. The I say that story only as a backdrop to this meeting between Rivera and Snyder. In that meeting, Rivera had to say to Dan Look Dan I'll do what you want me to do but we've got to make it agreement on Haskins. If I don't I won't sign anybody above Haskins. Backup quarterback you gotTA. Let me backup quarterback but I'm not going to challenge Haskins I'm GonNa let him be the Guy I'm GonNa let him become the starter and take it from there but and here's a big. Here's A. B. U. T. it he's not good enough. I'M GONNA make a move. And Snyder had to say, okay you as long as you give them a chance, that's all I could ask of you. I think he'll prove me correct 'cause I'm chief Scout. Here of the Washington football team you know I, I know talent. You know truly the Dunning crew effect. I mean, we could put you know the hall of fame should have a whole wing of the dunning Kruger affect owners in there just like a separate wing. Anyway. So that's besides the point but here so you know and so now what we see is four games, right? And everybody's up in arms about the four games. Everybody's up in arms about how can you bench this guy? He's only really played in thirteen games he started eleven. In fact of his passes, here's the most mind boggling thing that makes the argument for Haskins of his three hundred and forty nine passes. He's attempted in his NFL career two, hundred, sixty, four of them have come on he's losing a game. Wow. So now he's only tempted eighty five passes in his NFL career in games that he's one but here's the tragic part in those games he's won he's averaged five, six, six yards per attempt in those games he's won his quarterback rating sixty, six point eight in those games he's thrown one touchdown pass in those three games and one interception, and in those games, he's only thrown three passes of over twenty five yards. And Rivera. Knows this the thing that I can't get my hands or around. Is Why did they make them team captain because everything I hear coming out of Washington is doesn't work hard all the things that I saw at the mob academy, right? Why would they make them team captain? Yeah. That's. Frustrating because like you said, you believe in a guy or at least someone believes in the guy and wants a new regime comes in once they assess the situation. If they're not by it, they're not having it, and as you said Ron Rivera had to have understanding coming in. You know that when you bring it a new boss Hey I didn't draft this guy i. Don't believe in this guy necessarily if he shows me something great if not moving on and this is another example listen we've taken the job is to task and for good reason, the Data Jones pick looks like a ridiculous pick this time not that he's the only reason to blame obviously, the giants have a lot of problems, but this is another example of a first. Round quarterback could be a bust..

"And then I think a know the offense is the offense, you know, you're missing Stephon Diggs who is limited up in Buffalo right now, but you have Adam thielen who's a very established Great Wide Receiver one and then you have just in Jefferson who's Jose these flashes of being really really good, but it's it's in his rookie season, you know, it's really difficult to break out as a rookie wide receiver. So I think that you know, right now it's fascinating Dalvin cook is still a very good place here Kirk Cousins is Kirk Cousins, I think like right now they're in this weird transitional kind of phase where they have some new blood in there and at the same time like they're just trying to figure out and they the big game Thing is they don't have a defense to rely upon like they have in previous years cuz sometimes they can score 16 points and win the football game. I feel like now that they don't have a defense it basically forces almost every game to be into a shootout which is a disadvantage for that offense cuz that's not how they operate. They operate really well with given Dalvin cook the ball and you know and Kirk Cousins doing things when he has to do things. But as even last year we showed you know against the Packers on Sunday Night Football if you make the game go into Kirk Cousins hands, that's not you don't have a great chance of winning the game newest. I think I have two thoughts of a Minnesota. Number one. They really wish they had Xavier Rhodes. He went to the cold. I watched them play against Nick Foles on on Sunday played really? Well. I mean, I really he knocked a bunch of passes away. Go ahead. He's fascinated with because like Packers fans used to say all the time like roads are open because like literally would destroy them. We would destroy Xavier Rhodes like very so much tape of Aaron Rodgers destroying Xavier Rudd. And I just think it's hysterical that like he goes to the Colts as having like this Resurgence and it's kind of like Eric Ebron from a few years ago, like leaving the Lions not doing anything and then making the Pro Bowl the first time he's with the Colts the Colts just take like banished NFC North players and rejuvenate their careers for like a year or two. You're not wrong. I mean, they they're happy to have them there. He's playing really well. I I also it's disappointing with Minnesota because you would believe that going into this point in Kirk Cousins contract. They'd be a Super Bowl Contender and they're not that feels like a mass of L to me. Zach you just repeat that. I'm almost there. I'm like, I'm right behind how much how much was 84 million dollars and then they gave him how much was the extension like sixty?.

Yeah, so I kind of always knew I wanted to work in sports, but I was really going the sports business route throughout College. I went to University of Saint Thomas. I'll I'll read the took off Emoji here next to me us where that where the team. I don't know if you remember the article that the D3 team that got kicked out of their own conference for winning too much. That's right. Okay, that was fun. So I was down there. I was in charge of the the sports Business Club. I did internships for local baseball teams will still with the Timberwolves on the business side, and I was like honestly dead. Not digging this like if I'm going to sell sell something or do marketing. I'd rather make a bunch more money and have better hours and do it somewhere else. Yeah, but I didn't want to give up on doing sports at home. So I just went completely out of the sports business realm and I applied for PFF online got that job. And then I started my YouTube channel is like a little Pet Project cuz I had like I said the the Madden roster and that that roster was a great source for me to start YouTube because it was a a way to mark my channel cuz it has a little description on there. It's going to be like Yep. This is my ratings. If you want me to talk about them go to YouTube is that simple and then I just really enjoy doing that and thought it was almost exclusively mad and stuff and then the draft season rolled around cuz I started that in the fall and the draft season rolled around I started talking some mock drafts and stuff and those started doing job. And I was like, wow, this is actually kind of working. So I I really doubled down the next fall. I took a job doing valet. So I had money for rent and I was just like I'm going to really dead girl pedal-to-the-metal on YouTube and PFF and that was one of the most busy years. Well now pretty damn busy too.

What it's like to do give all this other stuff going on what you're trying to do this thing. Like this is what I really want to do is make content and you can't yet and it was so frustrating. But when once you finally get over the hump, you're like, I'm afraid it's so amazing. Yeah, I always tell people the first the first hundred subscribers are easily the hardest. Yeah.

"It was wage other than raw arm Talent. This guy has a top-10 really, you know trade at everywhere you look whether it's processor decision-making in and out of rhythm ability to sense pressure and extend place is accuracy. He has a whole package and it's not like his bad arm. I think his arm is comprable to like Tom Brady. So I mean what I said coming out of LSU and and I was actually slow to the Dead. Libero because of what he had shown before that, but once once I watched his every through throw him and I was like this guy doesn't make mistakes. He is Flawless unlike any rookie prospect that I've ever thought for sure. And then we see three games. He's surrounded by the worst offensive line. His Playmakers. Actually aren't that good? AJ Green hasn't been that good. Tyler Boyd is is been all right, but John Ross is dropping balls off a couple of weeks and he's showing all of the same stuff. He showed a college which is to me already Elite pocket presence Elite processing like ability to read defenses. He doesn't make mistakes his two interceptions are not really on him. And I just I'm ready and when you compare it to like Josh Allen the problem with him is he had problems come out of college. The last five years is our problems. So it's it's kind of an inverse sample size argument because yes, Josh Allen has been great for three weeks. But we also have a large sample size of him in his last 20 games of having birth. So that that was kind of where the big argument came in on that and then it put him over like Matt Ryan Tom Brady Drew Brees that kind of stuff. You know, that's fine. Those guys have established records. I'm just really like what borough is doing in and out of structure right now. He is just incredible. I think what's interesting about Joe burrow and everyone talks about his weapons. AJ Green has not been the same this year off and you talked about you said it sounds you can pick them up or Matt Ryan Drew Brees Tom Brady. I would actually agree with that breeze. Especially I love debris is one of my favorite people growing up. He's not the same this year. It just obvious watching me and Joe burrow. I love what you said nearly Flawless except for arm strength because well, yeah has a great arm everything else. I mean accuracy Paul location is phenomenal and I do you remember watching him two years ago to LSU how different of a quarterback he was like he was not even NFL quarterback in my opinion two years ago, right? Yeah. He was he was, you know, totally buried I had him like, you know, just as a note off. QB 15 QB 16. Yeah, and yeah slower than like an AJ McCarron would be by the way to like literally that low, right? Yeah. Yeah almost no difference between those types of places. Yeah. It was it was just insane what whatever clicks for him man..

"Did anybody watch the Chiefs and Patriots game on Monday Night Football. I that kind of the funniest part. Was that the CBS broadcasters and we are so lucky. I love Jim Nantz. I love Tony Romo. I think they are the best broadcasting pair in football. I love any time I can watch Jim Nantz and Tony Romo. I get so happy because I genuinely think they are the best Broadway in football. They're so much fun to watch. It was funny to watch him keep saying like by the way, there's another game Monday Night Football on ESPN like the Packers the Falcons. I know I'm sure they were obligated to say that I don't know what happened behind the scenes their wage was just funny how many times they pointed out remember you can watch Monday Night Football with ESPN Packers Falcons. I think ESPN was really pissed and they demanded that I don't know just interesting behind-the-scenes stuff. So, The Chiefs beat the Patriots 26 to 10 on Monday night and it was really disappointing because I I don't know that Kansas City won the game so much as the fact that the Patriots lost and here's what I mean by that. First of all the Patriots did not have their starting quarterback Cam Newton. He had a positive covid-19 test month and I mean with Cam Newton the Patriots could have won this game. It's very clear to me that defense played really well. Do not forget Chiefs Patriots Monday Night Football. It was a three-point game in the fourth quarter was 10 to 13 the Patriots losing by three points in this game in the fourth quarter. And a number of miscues were made by the Patriots early on and then in the fourth quarter that caused them to lose by a lot and it's it's kind of it's disappointing. It's frustrating A lot of it was on their quarterback situation. It's one of those things where covid-19 really thrown a wrench into a lot of stuff made the season very unpredictable. But the Patriots here is what happened. They had the ball twice in the red zone and got no points. They had their quarterback Brian Hoyer had a on a third-down. I believe this third-down had a fumble where Thursday West 3rd and 8th and held onto the ball too. Long took a sack. He fumbled the Patriots did not get a field goal attempt. They didn't get any it was really really bad and then later right before half-time Brian Hoyer took another sack where instead of throwing the ball out of the back of the endzone saving time off the clock. Brian Hoyer took a really bad and maybe it wasn't third down that the fumble happened. I honestly don't remember..

"bill obrien" Discussed on The Lead

"So Erin at the start of this off. The Texans traded all pro receiver de'andre Gins to the cardinals. What was the reaction to this trade? I think people were were stunned. Grew up by the car tour boost. You joke a serious. The idea. Train deandre Hopkins while just on its face is an unlikable move and they decided you know you can't afford deandre hopkins which is what. Bill granted said trading. Him is not reasonable. It's what they got back to return. Pretty surprised obviously. David Johnson really hasn't had much of an impact in Arizona in recent memory. And Jerry Hopkins has in Houston. So I think you're Hopkins says quite a few more good years and could justify the big salary extension is going to get it from the cardinals and I have my doubts that David Johnson will have a resurgence in Houston or he is seemingly declining is average. Three point seven yards per carry the past two seasons. I think the reaction nationally right is that Like every GM should call Bill Bryant and see if they can get. Jj Watt for a fifth round. Pick for light that maybe you'll try shots crazy is going to happen like Watson's not GonNa want to sign a contract extension all things but it has created this kind of aura. This idea that you know anything on the tape when it comes to this team because really they are a lot of ways defying the conventional views. Like what is value in this league while and there's also been a lot of talk that this trade went down because of a personality clash between O'Brien and his star receiver. It was a bit of a power struggle there because bill. Brian thought coach. O'brien thought he had too much influence over the locker room. You know he got into talking about the Andre Hopkins. 'cause the Andre Hopkins has a few kids and and from different women. He said he told the Andre doesn't like that. He has his baby mamas around sometimes from that I think the relationship just went bad and thus gender hopkins is on the record with us is saying you know. I had no relationship with bill. O'brien there's a very obvious ill-will between the two guys and I think that that definitely was a driving force and it kind of adds to this narrative again of why people are upset with Bill Bryant personality as much as the trade itself because this is now the second year in a row where he is parted ways with a really talented player and traded for of less than the perceived value. Today cloudy being the other. And so now you basically pennies on the dollar back for this guy who's going to go and instantly when we look at this from Seattle's perspective. It's amazing when a player that Houston might not be sure of. All of a sudden goes to a team like the seahawks. We look at their. Oh yeah this helps them a lot. They'll be one of the favourite and that's another. The contract demands is one thing but it comes to be a question of is the guy not fitting into this team. Culture Bill Ryan is choosing to establish I if so what is that culture really do towards winning the is it actually aiding building a better football team. We've all seen Bill O'Brien's TV personality loved the ninety guys. We have the group of guys the way you come to work but like today Jay Joe. He's busting my balls. 'cause he's looking for juice from me that we're some juice from you guys like how. `Bout you guys bring some juice in fact today you know what I want. I want coaches to just coach individual. And then just shut up and let these guys play. What is he like to deal with? He can't be that kind of gruff person. That you see those moments you know. There's kind of an infamous clip of him after one of their AFC. South Championships were our reporters. Questioned begins by saying wasn't necessarily the prettiest thing. Bill obviously it wasn't the prettiest of games doesn't matter Brian but AFC south champions two years in a row. Brian yet but you guys are back in the doesn't matter what it looked like back in the playoffs looking forward to the playoffs. Exact go ahead. Sorry but he isn't just that sort guy ideal them almost every day during the season and he respects the question. Kind of feels. There was some to do it he can. He can give a thoughtful answer. But I think that that one version of that wants sort of persona that has built up Through those press conference tirades those eight those hard knock moments and then also these traits is all aided in this kind of vision of him. As as this guy who's kind of operating Solo and and Just totally unreasonable. And we'll blow up in anyone and anything that the truth is always somewhere in the middle. Well Bill O'Brien is also on a very short list of NFL head coaches who also hold the title of General Manager. How did he end up in this rare position of power? Before I started covering the team he had kind of reported friction with General Manager. Rick Smith. Who'd been over at the team along time and ultimately Rick Smith wasn't fired he. He stepped away to care for his wife who have breast cancer and and it was supposed to leave of absence but he never retard they brought in another general manager. Brian gain most viewed as a guy signed matching deals that their contracts with run concurrent to one another lesson at a time and Brian game only lasted a season before he was fired. Really big story not only big news but also. They said themselves unusual. Timing a crazy. Timing is what it is and we're we're all baffled we're scratching our heads going. What happened. What happened because for the past year? He's been the general manager for the last year bill. Brian was asked all the time. How's your relationship with Brian Gain? Are Y'all working well together. And they always say yes. We are working well together but apparently not. I'm not saying you know. Ultimately their evaluation was that he wasn't good enough for the job and they pursued Nick Caserio from the Patriots the director of player personnel but the Patriots leveled a tampering. Charge at the Texans and the Texans dropped the pursuit and Bill Ryan was going to take over in the meantime because just the timing of when they fired the general manager and then he's kind of held onto it and then this past offseason. They finally gave him the the actual title. Well let's look for a second at Bill O'Brien the coach. His team has made the playoffs. Four out of six years. He's been in charge but he's also got a reputation for some perplexing in game decisions by step it to the is he has me these kind of perplexing decisions like you mentioned the most reason one and obviously being the fake punt you went for against the chiefs that I kind of seemingly gave the chiefs all the momentum if you just to believe accessible game and then obviously the Texas collapse from their homes with his fourth touchdown pass of the quarter. They have come all the way back from twenty four down and taking the lead in the last minute of the second quarter and butger. It's not easy to win consistently out and everyone say about him. He has done that but I think ultimately what kind of preventing him from being viewed by fans are in Houston and beyond that naturally as one of the really really good coaches that he has not really been made the next step he has a reach the title game. He's not going to receive praise for does taken. The team today see South Championship because he ever legitimate quarterback allowed. You'll think could win a super bowl Shawn Watson and so when you're doing things that are kind of maximizing the window maximizing his chances you're gonNA receive more criticism now. It's all about everything doing around. Him and people are criticizing lot of those other moves. That are happening around to Shawn Watson. And what's Bill O'Brien standing with Shawn Watson and the rest of the team in the Locker Room? I think the most important thing from the locker room is that he still has John Watson support. You might have. But he's no doubt I love that play. Madonna say whatever you want to say you know through other media the writing but quarterback east. Excuse me it's when he was asked about O'Brien after the chiefs loss. Pretty adamantly supported on means shots in the super happy with deandre Hopkins Straight. He was really good friends with Hopkins and they went to Clemson and deschamp tweeting cryptic rap lyrics after after the trade. But I don't think he's. He's losing his quarterback. Necessarily I think deshaun wants to recognize that. He needs to be a useful quarterback to be the right sort of leader for the team. He can't really be bagging on the coach so I think he still has shown a lot support and at the end of day. Fry The most important thing so it's pretty clear that his personality can cause friction with some people around him and he's made a number of moves that have been widely questioned. How secure is bill? O'brien's job I would say very bill. Brian saw has three seasons left on his contract. And he's been the ability to mortgage draft picks trade away stars. Texans are all in right now but you feel like they've really compromise. The future with some of those moves that what. Yeah I definitely do plus. I think it's probably a little rich to pay. Two first round picks on a third round. Pick to the Miami Dolphins for you know for Laremy Tunsil who has potential to be that like franchise left tackle okay. But he hasn't lived up to his top ten pick. Pick billing yet. I get questions fans of you. Know How long until Ryan's GONNA get fired? But the truth is I don't. I don't think it's any time soon. I mean because at the end of the day especially with the expanded playoff field. The Texans are gonNA keep priming making the playoffs. Shawn Watson is their quarterback and stay healthy and that's hard to fire a guy who's GonNa keep making the playoffs and bill. Brian is talking to reporters this series. Es said Kinda you know. He recognizes that. These are heavily criticized. We definitely have to coach better. Midden we didn't do enough to put our guys in good enough physicians to make place. We got it. We definitely have to do a better job coaching. You can tell them kind of his answers that he knows that he has a very high risk right now but he said you know you need years to figure this out or to judge this properly. And that's so but I think that on the other end. How realistic is on Sports? How often do we actually exercise years worth of patients to to judge anyone on? Finally Aaron Does Bill. O'brien have too much power. We'll see in the years to come but right now I would say yeah I mean. He's built a competitive team. He's a good coach and all that but I think at the end today is just never really probably the most productive or efficient way to build a team when you have one guy used simultaneously looking out for the short and long term needs of the team and that's not necessarily so much a knock on him as it is just that it's not really the most functional way of doing things. Well Aaron thank you so much for breaking this doubt becks. You can follow Aaron Racist Coverage of the Houston Texans at the Athletic Dot Com. That's it for this week. Thanks for listening everyone.

"The foundation for cancer research we've got some curious here we were having this conversation we've been having it for a couple of weeks is it possible that a general manager doesn't because of the nature of drafting across sports because it's so on unscientific a general manager have good seasons and bad seasons can a general manager be a good general manager for a period of time and then become a bad general manager or 100 percent i think if you had a guy just said hey you're gonna be the general manager of this team for the next twenty five years i think there would be great stretches great and there be lousy stretches of course like you can't get the draft in the evaluation of pliers even free agent exactly right he cancel the reason i asked the question because of what's happening in denver which seems to be a calamity at the position that way is most qualified to analyse rise position running that team what's happened to the broncos it's startling and it starts with john elway not being able to find a quarterback john elway wanted to overpay brock osweiler somehow gaps outspent by the stupidity of the uh bill obrien does huston whatever their call now the texans yet attacks texans dan home the oilers there for a second nuts the texans and that would have been a find some led you corrected yourself by hum but paxton lynch's a guy they took in the first round hasn't worked out and it took trevor semi in late so what i'm saying if i'd as a matter of financially three years ago is john elway a great general manager yang answer's yes yes and if i ask you now who's responsible for everything that's happening in denver where they're coming to miami and losing by a million points in there not any kind of competitive the last month of the seas it's gone away but that doesn't mean he's a bad general manager already just go to a batch drop it means that he's been bad this year though it does meet and and furthermore if he doesn't fixes quarterback problem he's going to be bad for the rest of the time hell no question about it but i'd like to think that he's gonna fix that somehow i'll give it how because he's gone i dunno okay but maybe it gets kurkova is that that seems that far away dan this is the.
