"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.

"On the court but in terms of public comments usually hits the right notes I think over the weekend he did not you heard the sound there and it was all too glad about these corona virus issue so today will prime spoke again about the possibility of playing games that fans and he walked it back a bit saying he would be disappointed to do that but ultimately would do its best in the interest of public health when I was asked a question I'm a fan of that data collection conversation going on behind closed doors about so obviously I'll be very disappointed you know not having friends that's lovely for a place my family from yes and no one could actually come to the right people to that point so I'll be disappointed in that at the same time you gotta you gotta listen to the people to keep a track home and if they feel is best for the safety of the players with the franchise that did the league so a mandate that then we all we all this to and that's where I come down on it too by the way lebron nice walk back bites he spoke glibly was able to flip about a very serious health situation public health situation so he walks it back he walks back in invalid unlawful Brondesbury place for the fans of the fans boo him he plays for his teammates if they like him so I don't necessarily believe that either our bill obrien James given credit he does walk it back in at the end he does say you gotta listen to the people they're keeping track on what's going on and Justin tonight twenty minutes ago according the Associated Press Seattle banning public gatherings of two hundred fifty or more people a huge press conference tomorrow with Washington governor Jay Inslee and reams of county and city officials are we we're a we're going to see this that I'm telling you we are going to see within the next out before the week is out we will have NBA games without fans we'll have March madness at least first and second round games next weekend and into next weekend without fans this thing spreads rapidly you just look at the situation in Washington and of course since the NFL is not in season no more sonics we do not have this issue in Seattle in terms of should fans attend games or not but just look at Seattle for example they have the first case the end of January it goes undetected there was a flu study for monitoring that the doctors there wanted to get approval from the federal government to turn their flu study into also a corona virus study but the federal government deny deny deny them the chance to do that and now watching it's become an epicenter of this in the US we have more than twenty reported cases we now have nearly a thousand cases in the U. S. in thirty seven states so that just shows you about how how quickly in contagious this virus can spread and that is where I come down on it I don't mean to sound alarmist but we still don't know so much about this virus the argument can be made that we've already that we're already behind the eight ball in terms of containment we have cases here in late January early February that we weren't testing the nursing home Seattle now links and the Seattle area rather now linked to nineteen deaths how did yet learned in early February that their sickness troubles whether corona virus we find out tonight again expose in The New York Times so you could say that we're already kind of behind the eight ball here and why not better to be safe than sorry I understand if you are elderly sixty an over view of underlying chronic medical conditions you are at great risk if you are healthy if you are younger you're not a great rest you can try to create a virus and if you do it is not deadly it's like the regular flu or a cold but it's not just about the young and healthy it's about everybody everybody goes to sporting events and everybody comes into contact with older people so let's see what's even site first round please March madness games next Tuesday you have fifteen thousand fans in the arena what's that all fifty thousand of them are strapping young healthy box there twenty five and they're young and they're healthy but they're not only around their peers they are around people who are sixty and older there on people with chronic health conditions there were around people who are at far greater risk to contract this virus and it just takes one it just takes one people again who are at C. pack the conservative political action conference one person there was no to been infected now you have a litany of politicians self quarantining better to be safe than sorry that's what I say and it should extend to sports and I think it's only a matter of time the N. B. is a conference call tomorrow maybe by tomorrow night's show we'll have a situation in the NBA says no fans attending games at least for the foreseeable future we already have no reporters in the locker rooms eight five five two one two for CBS brought in San Diego your honor doctrine or CBS sports radio Alex good good to hear yeah on the radio I listen here at the on W. E. I. my man I love it Tim green what's up yeah via I I totally agree it is better to be cautious especially with the trend of the number of cases and the personalities I think that it's ironic that the Ivy League canceled their tournament I think that's a little bit going too far especially on the heels of possibly harbored going into that you know the March madness tournament but I I agree with you know being cautious and until we we get a hold of him what's going on here and come up with some vaccines yeah and that's the thing too we compare this without a number of callers this hour talk about the flu last winter the flu killed thirty six thousand people in the United States and all we've never heard about the flow and the true can be very dangerous and very deadly for elderly people sick people there's no doubt about it and right now confirmed cases the coronavirus is way way below that but as we've explained confirms cases does not mean those are the only cases in the US in fact it is almost certain we have many more there's undetected because we don't have enough tests out yet that's number one and number two there is a vaccine for the flu people get it I got my flu vaccine this year there's no vaccine right now for cove in nineteen there's no vaccine for that that's why you self quarantine because nobody is immune to it can in Washington DC says were overreacting just a little bit can welcome to CBS sports radio yeah the only reason I say that is because like I live in Washington DC I don't go to Redskins games for example the main reason I just found it's a little too dangerous you're dealing with you things alcohol and rabid fans you know one twenty eighteen one of the failed left the game after being plied with alcohol killed three kids is really made up well with you all you don't hear about it and then you also know that there's violence the weather in the stadiums are after the stadiums where people have been murdered we have real issues in the country already seventy thousand people a year die as a result of gun violence in traffic accidents happening now we don't do anything about it thank you you want me to get excited about a white risk if you do it okay here's here's what I'd say to that either you can say I don't go to Redskins games because the Redskins are awful not worthy of my hard earned money in which case I would say right on yes people get drunk and act dumb and do terrible things after they go out sometimes and there's no glossing over at the weight you have problems already facing this country including gun violence but this is a new one number one and we do have remedies to try and stop those issues in terms of this now again we don't have a vaccine out yet and we don't know much about it is completely new and we can prevent the spread of it by distancing ourselves socially that's what this comes down to in a yeah it's a shame and I get I don't think the Ivy League should canceled its tournament this weekend I think that's an overreaction I think it's a shame for the players you look at Harvard they just finished one game behind Gayle just one game this year and now no tournament for them it's not like the big ten we're nine ten teams are gonna go dancing next week so it's a bummer for those kids I think the games could still be played again young athletes healthy athletes play but let's just try to mitigate the spread of this this is this is what it's about in this time tile is also coming to us from the nation's capital Kyle you're on CBS sports radio Hey how you doing out I'm well so yeah I just like the other guy was speaking I I obviously it's an overreaction I mean the question was is it an Iraqi or is it not yes your action rabbit is obviously you know going through every media outlet that I can because you know it's you get numbers just a talking about I mean I turn on the radio station thing I'm listening to NBA scores next you know run a virus is locked so I mean this the first time opponent ever because it's you know it's it is a problem but you know it is obviously an overreaction because just like all the points are made you know you're you have facts to back up your side of the story doesn't mean that it's not enough reaction obviously of vaccine will come I mean you said a year year and a half but I mean that sounds like I don't know what I'm doing now Dr Anthony fallacy whose and as at the CDC I'm I'm that the CDC says that but I mean you know yes if it is not rational but yet obviously people need to you know take care of themselves but it is office it's very similar to flu where if you're older or have an immune system that is you know not doing as well as others it is a problem but it is of course it's an overreaction in my opinion but thanks Kyle up against it sorry folks we can't hide in our sports bunker can't do it here sports leagues are adjusting plans on a daily basis including barring reporters from the locker room necessary sure but there's a worry that that band will become permanent even once we get over these corona virus scare not be bad bad.

"Lot of time on the bench specially around draft picks um though bill obrien for some reason thought that he didn't need to start started shawn watson and then uh a half into the sea he said that was with a terrible mistake i have to go to shun watson to shun watson was lights out so i think mr bisky said on the bench a few weeks and he came out and he was pretty impressive so i i think whoever they get sam donald baker mayfield uh josh alan uh that person who's gonna see the field by october and i think pyrite taylor is your insurance policy and then and make some sense i don't doubt the move at all but there's a reason the bills are ready to move off from him take the quarterback one of four here's the thing i mean they're in such intact there's a benefit to go on one and thirty one over the last two years you in such a fantastic position i think they can entertain trade offers if they wanted to that topic if they feel like they are guys gonna be there at four but i here's the thing i think you take your quarterback and for i mean at one excuse me whoever you fall in love with a whether it's mayfield darnell alan arose in and then when you double back its four if someone like shove is there the defense of instruments he state you take him and you don't wait a splitsecond listening trade office anything you pair hand with myles garrett and you have sort of a jj watch g dave then cloudy situation he's an and you're just dominating with with two and a half guys an office on the dev's of line making everyone else's job easier i don't think segment barkley's a special talent but i don't think if you're the browns you necessarily needed four given you know a team that wins one game in two years they have plenty of need and i don't think running back to the top of the list right i could ask you about aid questions about this instead i'll just let you take wherever you what have you seen the viral video odell beckham junior and what kind of an effect as.
