"Reacting to this Huge news out of Houston will be with me as everyone is on the Goodyear Hotline Bubbles here today. Hemos here today and again, the news that broke just before we came on the air here last few minutes to get up. J. J. Watt asks for in really and receives his release from the Houston Texans who have become basically just a sinking ship. People are just racing from them as quickly as they can. And I was thinking about this. You know, there's nothing worse than rooting left. One of the worst things you can have as the fan of a sports franchise. Is when the ownership is just a mess and a disaster and there's nothing you can do about it. Because someone made this comment to me on a golf course in a different context about a different team. And it is always stuck in my head and it stays with me and I think it applies here, and I don't say this lightly. But when you look at the complete and utter disaster Cal McNair has made of the Houston Texans. If that was a public company. The board of directors would have him removed with cause immediately immediately. Has failed in every way you can fail. In the national football, You can inherit a franchise and you can on Lee fail up the Houston Texans are going to continue to make trillions of dollars going forward, regardless of what he does. So is your fan. There's nothing you can do Nothing. You can boo You cannot go. But I've never been a big fan of not going the whole not going. I've never liked. Let me tell you a story about that. Actually, Let me tell you.

"Houston. Texans have hired Dylan Thompson, D a. Who's doing Thompson. Well, I'm glad you asked kids. He's the new Texans character coach. Who was the last Texans character coach? That would be Jack, the quack Easterby. Why does this matter? D a. Because Dylan Thompson is one of Jack the quacks best friends. Yep. Happened again. Happened again. So think about how crazy this is. Think about how crazy this is. Houston, Texans hire a team chaplain. Who ends up becoming their character coach. What is a character Croat coach? He's supposed to be. Coaching the guys and how to live their lives properly, too. Help out the organization to help out their football production to help out their football careers, which look I have no problem there. Basically a life coach on a staff of Really well paid coaches. Great. I think that life coaching and guidance and people to actually be employed to say this is a good idea. This is a bad idea. What do you doing tomorrow? What do you doing today? What did you yesterday? What are your plans? How do you approach this? Here's some advice. You're somebody to talk to. Hey, Those are all great guard rails for especially young professionals. Who are making tons of money in the back blink of an eye can lose it all by making a terrible decision one night behind the wheel of a car or on social media, or saying the wrong thing. Hanging out with the wrong person or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It makes sense to have people around that coach you about life. I get it. But said character coach Jack Easterby somehow Became the strength and conditioning coach, which is definitely not his background. Any somehow began having personnel control as well. And that the character coach apparently was also banging the drum in the front office to trade DeAndre Hopkins and then As the character coach. Rose up and gained more power. The head coach got fired and the G M's multiple got fired and the last guy standing was the character coach. There was no full time head coach. There was no full time GM, but there was a character coach who assumed the GM responsibilities Now think about this. Guy that has absolutely no experience as a strength or conditioning coach, nor a personnel man is now both. Mm. And since they had no GM And they had no head coach. They had to high research firm, which is what all these teams do. Too, then. Find the best candidates. Hey, hi research firm. The search firm is going to bring back their candidates that they think are the best fit for the Texans organization, both head coach and GM. Comic there. Owner of this team. And under cover of darkness. Shawn Watson had gone to the front office and also put in his feedback about a coach in about a GM. Team president had put it is impact or in His his opinion. On the head coach of the G M. Under cover of darkness. Cal McNair decides he's going to throw out. Whatever the search firm finds. And not what the team president suggests and not with a star quarterback suggests he's going to go against all of their suggestions. And listen to Character coach. Without telling anybody, the organization Again under cover of darkness. They suddenly higher. The character coach's best friend from his previous job, Nikos area. This causes. The Star quarterback to go screw you guys. I'm never playing here again. And it causes the team president to say Screw you guys. I'm not working here again. They convinced the team president Hey, don't walk away right now. It looks like it's too dysfunctional. Wait a couple of weeks, but he is still on his way out the door that's announced this week. Team president doesn't want to be around anymore. Star quarterback doesn't want to be around anymore. Former star wide receiver Cryptically tweets about listening to Shawn Watson and former star Wide receiver puts his name on Jackie's Toby's bad news that be Andre Johnson. And what happens. Yesterday, they hire Jack Easterby, his best friend to be the new character coach. Another best friend, Dylan Thompson. See the pattern here. How can you possibly blame to Shawn Watson for wanted to get out of there? The team president had been there 20 years. Has written a book on leadership that he just released And departed his position of leadership because he hated what was going on there. Jack Easter bees. Hypnosis over Cal McNair. Jack. The quack is a snake oil salesman is ruining that franchise. And it's crazy that everybody could see it except Cal McNair. It's scary is what it is. It's terrifying. They're going to lose a generational talent into Shawn Watson, because Of the character coach. Nice. Standing by with our headlines this morning, kind, Sir Andrew Bogus Mr Bogue's good morning. DEA.

"Players have noticed how this organization has treated to Shawn Watson and handled the coaching search. Oh, it gets better. They are especially along by the actions of Cal McNair, the owner. And executive Jack Easterby. Ah love how the hiring process where general manager and head coach was conducted. It immediately sparked the distrust between the organization and the players. That's not the only issue plays have the McNair And the organization. Many in the legroom in with Ian Fitz Simmons are reportedly along by the presence and influence that used to be has with McNair. How long we said this. Now people talked about this, especially from the Patriots organization that no Jack used to be before he came over to the Texans as a Player consultant chaplain. Whatever the hell was title was when he first came over. Look, man, Nikki Sirio. I feel badly for him and to a degree, Freddy because he's a Damn good football person. He is now tied to Easterby because of their connection to New England. Which means now he's tied to McNair, which means he's also tied to Forcing one of the best quarterbacks going right now. To say, I don't want anything to do with you all. Impresario had nothing to do with it. It's all Jackie's to be in Cal McNair. That's it bottom on So now you're looking to move him, right? Are now excuse me, Or maybe they're not want out. He wants out. You're not looking to move him. Here's the thing man, especially after the Stafford trade. Freddie. You look at this thing RG three unknown commodity unknown. Coming out of Baylor, the Heisman Trophy winner. Was traded for three first round draft picks, a second round draft pick and players. It's an unknown commodity. Shawn Watson is a known commodity. Hey, seven years younger than Matthew Stafford, who just went for two first round draft picks. Ah, third round pick Owen Oh, by the way, another first round pick and quarterback Jared Goff, who just let a team To the Super Bowl two years ago. So essentially three first round picks and the third We're gonna have two years left on his contract and seven years to Shawn Watson is younger. The contract's already in place for the shot, Watson If you have another team control for five years. Coach. That's minimum to me. Three first rounders, Maybe 2 to 3, second rounders and a player if you want to Shawn Watson. Okay, That's my starting point. If I'm the Houston Texans, starting Going? I'm going to tell you why I disagree with you after you were Keyshawn Johnson, Keyshawn Javelin Zuman. Don't forget Monday through Friday on ESPN Radio and ESPN two from 68 10 A.m.. He says. Whatever demands to shine is making Don't give in. He also from a mental standpoint, has to stand strong. He cannot crumble under the peer pressure of the media. Because this is a cycle I've been there. I've seen it. Everybody's the shot the shot to shine. Whoa! Get out of there! You're crazy on Shawn! Shawn. There. They don't know what you're doing in about 2.5 3 months. That thing will start to turn on the shop and all the little SportsCenter anchors and all the little people start to say, Yeah, lots and the problem this guy and he cannot crumble under that. He has to stay firm in his decision. He cannot all of a sudden cave because people going to say, Well, you know the shine. It was a great guy, but I don't This is hurting him. His agent is really hurting him. Listening it just keep training and stay strong. Be committed to it. If you're gonna do it, you gotta be committed to that may be all well into what he had to say. Is why disagreed about the starting point for the Shawn Watson. The Houston Texas will screw this up. What they could get. Maybe not what they're going to get because they love to cut off the nose despite their face, And you are exactly right if you want to Shawn Watson, that bad you better give me Ah Hall the same way the Houston Rockets got for James Harden involving four teams. Based on the Houston, Texas. What's been this organization the last year they will find a way to screw this up, in which the team that gets the Shawn Watson will feel they did not get fleeced by the Houston Texans. You can't trust any organization. Led by Cal McNair or the fact that Jack Easterby has his ear and put his scenarios in the middle of this thinking, I know we can get but I got to do with these two. They're gonna find a way to screw this up. If I'm the Houston Texans, there is absolutely no way I'm asking for less than what you just talked about. Three first rounders, a quarterback and two second round US watch, minimum Minimum Animal Animal Watch the Houston, Texas in it with a pick and a cart. When it's all said and done for the shot, Watson. It's gonna be the same thing last year. When they said Bill O'Brien. Are you tired of your wide receiver? New cop pins? They said, Sure Train The Arizona Carter's with David Johnson and people laughed him out of the building for you lost his job. Watch. Part. Two happens right now with the Houston Texans. You cannot even trust they're going to make the right decision or get the right kind of hall in return for a guy that is worth it. When it comes to Shawn Watson to your point, he's Freddie Coleman. I mean, Fitzsimmons here on ESPN Radio. Shawn Watson has an MBA type no trade clause in his contract. Which was a breed. Brilliant move by the agent David more Gotta The Shawn has to approve whatever team he gets. He gets traded to So you just narrow down your entire process, too. Right here. I mean, you've gone from here, you know, 31 options to and let let let's be honest. There's about 67 teams..

"He's he's he's. He's appeared to be in that he's trusted the wrong people. He doesn't know football all those things. And so i keep saying this because this is true and now you know i can say i can write it. You guys can save on seven ninety. We can report it in. The chronicle wouldn't shawn watson halls you out like this and he said i don't wanna be here anymore because basically you know read between the lines you run so poorly. I don't trust cal. Mcnair this if you're gonna blame easterby near ultimate mcnair because comic mcnair the one who stood by easterby and callum mcnair is the one who's allowed the texans to let their fan base down once again. Brian t smith houston chronicle a few more minutes. Here on the sean styles sean. Sports talk seven ninety and brian. Listen i in you. And i both know ten years. From now. The shawn watson impact on a franchise will be far deeper and better than jack eastern. Will we know that. So here's what i don't get and i know we're all trying to figure it out. How can a person or a franchise be so blindfolded and so ignorant and so low iq common sense and football iq that it's got to this point you as a businessman. I didn't even say football guy. How can you not read the building the room. how how. How do you get to this point of ineptness that it's almost as if you never watched the game or knew how to read a room or a locker room. There's an ignorance here that is beyond belief. You you just you just nailed it and and you know like easterby house. A nice friendly guy would want to. You'd be in in your backyard at your barbecue. Chopping on cheeseburger Maybe drinking duels or something like that you know and and he'll laugh at your jokes. That's that's cow mcbarron. Smile little probably. We'll talk you very much. He's he's not a a bleep bleep but if he's smart enough and if if you're not smart enough and you're not experienced enough you have to have the right people around you right. Most of the many of the best donors in sports we don't we. Don't sit around and be like robert kraft was such a genius and he put it all together and draft. Tom brady and you know he put the defense together and he put no. That's bill belichick and the patriots had issues and they'll ballot check wasn't perfect at the start and they had to go through some rough stuff those first couple of years but ultimately you hire the right people and you let them run your organization and if you have dysfunction if you have an internal nightmare if you have daily pr problems. Fix that sean. They still don't have a pr director and they have been dragged through the mud for months and so that means at the top. They're just not smart enough. Not one rumble in. This is not been reported enough. Jamie routes right doesn't affect the on field product doesn't leave some up doesn't call. Jamie routes have helps make the mcmasters billions. And he's been with this organization since the start and he's on the verge of being out because he doesn't want to deal with jack easterby anymore. So how do you allow this to happen. I really don't know and the only explanation is this is just how how mcnair has run it. I i don't know who can get to him. You would think at some point be honest you think point janice mcnair would would would call him in. It'd be like son. We need to talk right but i. I don't know that anyone can do that. And here's the thing ultimately. If the shawn watson leaves and and you chose jack easterby over to shawn watson you'll never be able to live that down the thirty seconds. I got left with you knowing all that. We've just said this team is going to be ignorant enough to trade him. He's going to be playing for somebody else's name. You probably will unbeliev. Yeah he. He probably isn't here. Here's the here's the thing then the spotlight very now. It goes you know. I've always tried to find a optimism right. Yep with the texans. it's gonna go to nick. Caserio nick stereo. You know the texans. Need daryl morey right now the texas need jeff luneau right now nick. Caserio has got to step up and there is a way to end up with the best hall in. nfl history. More than the the. You know the herschel walker trade of the ricky williams draft trade. You a way to do this and quote unquote comeback with just you know an avalanche and you can basically start rebuilding your organization time for nick caserio to prove he deserves this job. Nicosia's under contract now so don't be afraid to fight back with your owner. That's why you're here. That's why you're getting paid. Don't be afraid to fight your owner over what you're going to get or whether you should trade ryan great stuff man this great insight love having you on appreciate The passion is always brother. Keep it up. Thanks for joining us. Thank you very much sean. Take care risheh youtube. That's brian teeth with the houston chronicle. We'll discuss take your call seven three two one two five seven ninety. Yeah the more you hear about the more. You save watson. I'd i'd want out too. I love brian's line at the beginning of when you ask them what the texans fans deserve better and he just simply said because they're human beings yes which means that the people that are dealing with and you start to wonder if they are right or at least decent at times. It's crazy sports. Talk seven ninety. We're coming right back. More sean salisbury gideon. Strapping and writer sportstalk seven. Anti great thanks to brian. T smith great passionate interview and makes an incredible point about the fans in this city deserving far better than what the houston texans front office is giving them and to lose the best player which will end up being would've been an. Jj watt special. Andre johnson special andrea hopkins special but because the quarterback which would have ended up over the course of his career if he stays here the best player in franchise history texans And that's saying something considering the guy. The defensive side of the ball has been the defensive. Mvp three times. So maybe i'm a bit premature. But he was his assent was headed there and at the end it would have been those four guys. Were talking about j. j. watt. Obviously probably right now is the first. Because of the impact but andrea and in deondraye. Wasn't here long enough to be considered the best over the course of a career but andre johnson in that and to shawn watson would be if.

"To rob and brad. Thank you for the call man. Rob what's up man. How you doing good morning. John how you doing good so i haven't got a chance to look at all the logistics of everything But you know from the get go. I had a feeling this as come in. And i've been thinking all along the only way that i could see. This being a possibility is going to be a two two. I and two seconds offered to sean if we could maybe make a mega team deal that may even involve multi teams both teams that involve. Jj as well. I think we're at the point. Now where we just need to start over and trying to restock everything The right way because the the situation. Vob less than but What do you think about Possibly doing something with With the chargers and looking at sandwich doesn't her did this year. And maybe joey bosa as opposed to nick. Thank and i'll listen tritiated. I i like it. I think that getting defensive coach. While you'd love to have watson. I think if you're the chargers as good as watson is i think you think you gotta player the you do not have i think the chargers you say well we got herbert. We really well. Watson would make us a bit better but then by losing bosa we get worse and draft picks. I think they i i. I don't think the chargers even gonna call about to shawn watson. I think they believe herbert's would call. Because borough i don't. I don't take her. I like your idea. See 'cause i do want assets. But i also want veterans to do a not an old veteran but a guy who impact my teammates still young and joey bosa that type of guy who watson's better player but i would think that the chargers think they have a franchise quarterback so i don't think they'd be in the market to trade for watson. I doubt they'd make that call. Maybe just to see because it's due diligence. I don't think it happened. But i'm with you. It's gonna be an and i m c tyler. Feel the same way it's going to be. You're gonna you want to build this thing as much you can. But if i can get a couple of young starters to help. I'll do it Andy welcome in manhattan. Doing i'm all right. Hey look we have to rebuild so you don't want to check on toast because and garoppolo. It's a lot of money you're going to be what eighteen for two three years and you might as well just got it and when i say gut it you gotta get rid of what gets rid of watson and decide to get pitch. He and if. I was watson i look at the playoff games. Five teams that are need me quarterback that make the playoffs rams saints bears redskins coach and the best came out of this saints out. Be sitting payton's living room asking them to put a package together but let me ask you guys this wherever watching goes what does he have to do to make this trade worth. Its while for that team because you have to super bowl within three years four years so they have to win multiple super bowls. Well depending on what you give in. andy thanks for the call i to me. If you're going to get your roster to get watson i'm not. I don't just want kirk cousins. Get me to the offs. Or i just don't want a guy who gets lamar jackson. Get me to the playoffs. But now winning. I mean lamar still young in his career. He can fix that too. But or being the texans get there and lose no i for it to for it to and it also depends on in return the picks they make. What's that do for the texans. I mean and then we'll know five years now he say okay. Did these three first rounders in two players. How they work to the texans. And where do we go to eight eight nine seven ten and six eleven five but get beat three times in the playoffs. That won't be enough. 'cause i can find. We all go through a litany quarterbacks including myself who've been on play-off teams. That aren't in watson class. So if you're going to cut your roster eight nine won't be good enough. I don't care how good to shawn. Watson is if they're not if they're not in super bowl contention and free in that case they would have to get to one and being a chance to win it. Or it's not worth the for your franchise just to go nine and seven and get to the playoffs after you've got it your roster your trading because you think. He's the difference in you getting into the playoffs and him playing in february. I'm trading for watson. i'm thinking. I'm winning a super bowl. Let just trading for him to get the place. 'cause kirk cousins can give me to the play offs. I i mean hell to and fitz can get me to the playoffs or at least close. They got close. I mean now to win at all you see what happens the the quarterbacks that are good but not great eliminated but i i think the great ones are still playing. And we're playing last weekend. So now if i trade. That much for watson if we're not in the super bowl by the time the the those rookie contracts. We haven't gone by the time. Those rookie contracts draft picks you drafted if those guys are about to get their second contract that they haven't set foot in the super bowl then than the trade or at some point in his career. Gasoline air ten years. But you start to. We'll start to see how it pays dividends in four or five years but yes. I'm training to win. A super bowl with shawn watson. If i don't the trade wasn't worth it period because there's a whole bunch of guys it can get you to the playoffs. Can you imagine ten eight ryan tannehill gives to the plows. How awful it going to be when shawn watson plays in the super bowl somewhere else. How awful. I'm not gonna be able to watch the super bowl. I mean i've said if shawn watson were to be a pittsburgh steeler. I think he'll win. I believe he wins the super bowl. If to shawn watson. I said yesterday on their show if shawn watson to go to the forty niners and you kept your core players and traded your fix for him even four like you would suggest and suggest that you start out the san francisco forty niners will win the super bowl with him. Hell go to my raiders. I'll take that deal eventually. They'll super bowl with them as long as as long as they don't give away their you know the corp if they just gave away draft picks they can win. He's that good. And if you're if you're a nine and seven eight to the rams l. The rams are a playoff team without him. Strive with two different quarterbacks at the end there walks in with mcveigh yeah. Yeah i got to win the super bowl with him. If i'm got my roster at some point time while we're paying him i have to win especially at forty million bucks. Now they won't be paying that the forty million bucks and a long-term game and all these new the guaranteed money. You know the the paid out. Yes i'm not trading to just make the playoffs all right we'll come back If we've got some callers on whole just just stay there. Be patient listening. Brian t smith's next and we'll take your calls afterwards and we'll stick it out a little bit later on. We needed to get you. Guys in on the stakeout so we appreciate it. Bryant t smith next it is sports talk seventy heavy t an mc. Along as. well listen to you. And i think the sean salisbury show.

"What with the SportsCenter all night on ESPN Radio and the ESPN AB, Sirius XM Channel 80 those stories and highlights ahead, But we begin with a relationship that is beyond repair. Shawn Watson has officially requested a trade the organizational disaster that that is, I mean, it's creepy. Unless Cal McNair of the owner now can fire Cal McNair, Not much is going to change. Maybe you just heard the shot. Watson is officially asked the Houston Texans for a trade Adam Schefter reporting. The request was made weeks ago and the new head coach hire of David Cully will not alter his desire to be dealt Schefter on SportsCenter We've seen to Shawn Watson make his decision and now the Houston Texans will have to make theirs and they will have to make the choice of the best of the worst case scenarios they can either move on from their franchise. Quarterback and collect a treasure trove of compensation in return for him. Or they can simply squat on him and enforce their rights and try to uphold their into the bargain. Find him for not being in many camps almost $100,000 fine him $50,000 a day for not showing up to training camp. Find them $620,000 for each preseason game he misses and then try to re collect $21.6 million and money if he decides to retire, So each side has got its own ideas, But this Shawn Watson, so highly principled man, don't think the Houston Texans. They're gonna want to see this go the distance, but they're gonna have to decide what they want to do next as teams call them and try to see if they are willing. To trade the Sean at this time, so no doubt Houston has a problem in the form of franchise quarterback who was signed for four years at 156 million but has a desire, toe walk and leave.

"As the new organization to try to win back his trust is it is it is it automatically just firing Jack Easter being getting rid of him? E. Don't know. What's we lost? We lost Brian. Um, maybe that could be it. Um and again. But if it appears Easter bees in the pocket of Calvin there, the owner I mean, I mean, here. Here's what I don't get about the whole Texan situation. And I know we're up against it here. Just a little bit is you went out and you hired a search firm and you paid them hundreds of thousands of dollars. They came back with. I believe it was Louis Riddick and the player personnel guy for the Steelers. I think his name was con, I think was Omar Khan and Jack Easterby. Talk Cal McNair into going in completely different direction and then went and hired Nick, a stereo from the New England Patriots. So it's like Obviously, Easterby is clearly in Cal McNair's back pocket. And if you're just Shawn Watson, I'm not sure what they conduce outside of firing Easterby. And going out and There's been a lot of talk that that that Watson wanted Eric, the enemy is the head coach and supposed to the Texans had an interview with him today about that position, So it's gonna be interesting to see what they can do, if anything, and obviously right now he holds every single card in his pocket right now, and he can dictate where he goes. Which is gonna be dictating What the return the Texans get. Yeah. I mean, he could say You're right. He the Texans could get a deal done with the team. And he says, No, I don't want to go there. So work on a different one. For me Gonna be interesting. We've got more to come on. This has gotta happen. Our to go If you missed it earlier, we have your chance to win..

"The Houston, Texas that, according to reports over the weekend, Welcome back D A with you Here on CBS Sports Radio, a little reminder that you could always watch the show was well go toe watch ta dot com available on any device also watch us on twitch by going to the CBS Sports Radio channel there. Cal McNair. Need to have his head examined. Because Cal McNair has taken a Ferrari. And put Multiple bags of manure in it. And taken the tires off and put snow tires on it. And driven it through far mud. Because you have to Sean watching and he is not a prima donna. Shawn Watson is not a guy that you don't trust to be in a leadership position that Shawn Watson has always done everything right? He's won. He's built cultures at Clemson. Veterans respect them. I mean, JJ wants coming up to him after a season go, man We wasted your year at J. J wants been around a long time. You think he's doing that for a knucklehead? No to Shawn Watson is He is what you want. As your franchise leader and you have upset him so much. By all of the nonsense of the organization. That the Sean wanted is Even by his own accord. Have traded DeAndre Hopkins put him at an anger level two. He's now a 10. If I'm Cal McNair Sitting down with Sean wanted and I'm saying to Sean, we want you here. We gave the extension for a reason. We messed up. I messed up. I want to make this right? Let's work through this, okay? And I'm taking Jack Easter B A from the farm comic there, and I'm I'm saying you're not part of this right now. And I'm taking Nick cancerous and you're not part of this right now. This is between me. The leader of my team. And if you are Cal McNair You pushed aside your ego is being the owner. The son of a daddy billionaire. And you just go man to man. How can we make this right? Because there's a lot of people around Houston that don't believe Cal McNair's a bad guy. It's just that maybe he little Doofy. And that he's followed the wrong advice. Namely Jack Easterby. And I would just I think the way that you connect to a good guy and all natural leader like to Shawn Watson is to be authentic. And to say, Let's just scrap what happened. We met. I messed up. I want to try to fix this because you are crucial. You know if the Texans trade to Shawn Watson, what are the chances without the number one pick in the draft that they're going to find the next franchise guy? I mean, look, there's always the opportunity, so I'm not saying it's impossible because The Chargers found Justin Herbert outside of the first pick, and Shawn Watson wasn't the first pick. But you know, you wait your whole life to get it to Shawn wants Say.

"And I guess he's coming up at two o'clock to. He follows me at two o'clock. I didn't know that when I reached out to him this morning because I wanted to get an inside. Look at what's going on right now in Houston with Shawn Watson And I could speak to this because being in Philly and doing shows on sports radio 94 Wi PE every day from 2 to 6 with, like with former eagle like Reese. Get caught on a lot to give a perspective from Philadelphia with what's going on with the Eagles or whatever whatever the Philadelphia topic is right. And right now there's a lot going on with the Eagles with Carson Wentz. With Doug Peterson, who just got fired with with their GM Howie Roseman with their owner, Jeffrey Lori. And I always believed that if you really want to know what's going on, you need to speak to the people. That deal with it every day that see every news story that seats that sees every report that comes out from from the great journalist from that particular city, And it's hard for for anybody else to do that, because they, especially for me, because I'm I'm worried about what's going on with the chaos and Philadelphia right now. So it appears from from where we are right now. I mean, this is the This is the bottom line with with the Houston Texans into Shawn Watson. He wants out Right. Like the quote was, he quote just wants out. And that's a big problem. When your quarterback once out and you try to appease him by doing whatever they're trying to do, really, On the back end of things he just wants out and there is a there is something that's that's going on in Houston with with their front office and their owner and their vice president. Football object. Easterby, who is a team chaplain turned NFL Executive. I mean, it's It's amazing. He went from being literally being the team chaplain to another role in the New England front office. Never really in charge of football ops. What was a key figure in kind of Created power in the organization's He was in too now being in Houston and being a major major player, maybe has the most power of anybody in that organization, and I know they just hired a GM this week. The car stereo, but still he is friendly with Jack Easterby. So the problem? The problem for Cal McNair is, and he is the Texans owner and he's the son of the longtime owner, Bob McNair, is that he doesn't see there's a problem. Right, like Sports Illustrated came out with a guy Get sister cover feature. And I mean, I don't. I haven't seen a Sports Illustrated magazine in a long time. Connor agree. My producer e mean, Have you ever read a real sports Illustrated your millennial? Never actually got in the magazine and read it. I have never gotten a magazine. I very rarely have read a newspaper. You know, I really get all my information from tweets. That's about it. Well, I I wish I could rip you for it. But I can't. I know that. They all that stuff's dying out. I remember as a kid waiting for the weekly, the weekly issue of Sports Illustrated to come in the mail could get it weekly. Oh, my God, you get the NFL preview because you didn't get in get information from anywhere else. She had a newspaper at a local newspaper in my hotel. They had the photo of your Daily News and The Philadelphia Inquirer. I would read box scores of all whether it's baseball or basketball or hockey or football. You wait for the next day to read the box score. In the paper and eat my cereal in the morning by the heater vent on the floor, reading the box scores seeing how many points. Dr J scored the night before for the Sixers. So the world has changed, but Sports illustrated, I guess, though, has still has issues that comes out and on the front of the cover. It's Houston has a problem but the text the Texans owner doesn't see it that way. So we're gonna show him Pendergast coming up here at about 1, 15 or sorry about 15 minutes. To talk about it. What is really going on in Houston? Because to Shawn Watson once out, Okay, great. You want out? What does he really want out to where he's willing to say? I'm not going to play. If you don't let me out, and what can we do to solve the issue? Of you wanting out. So even if he does play is he gonna be happy in his head? Is you already out? You know what I mean? They do not have the culture that to Shawn Watson. Once he played collegiately Clemson, where he won a national title and it listen. Alabama claims in Ohio State. They have a winning culture. The Texans do not And a lot of Texans, including some former Texans, and some current Texans thinks that it really started when this Jack Easterby guy arrived in 2000 and 19. So Shawn Watson. I think like with any any franchise quarterback, and they were a bad team this year, and it certainly wasn't because of him. I think any franchise quarterback that's making as much money as they make they get to have a relationship. That's a little bit different with the owner and with the GM. Then let's say the running back or on offensive lineman or a defensive player. Just because they're the highest paid player. They're the most important player in all of sports. The quarterback. And when you have one as good as to Shawn Watson, you wanna make sure you're including him in the decisions? I'm not saying that you allow a player to dictate your moves. And no way should've quarterback be telling you hire this guy hire that guy hired this guy, But he should have input and you should listen to him and include him in the decisions and part of the faint part of the problem with Shawn Watson, is that Houston's have majorly screwed up their franchise by trading one of the best wide receivers in the league while taking a bad contract back and return while making bad trades toe. Bringing in an offensive lineman. That's fine, but giving away high first round draft picks, so they have made big mistakes in getting where they are right now, with four wins like you can't You look at the Texans. It Z only half about the town and the players they have on the team. The other half of it is just total dysfunction. Right, so the owner Cal McNair doesn't see that there's a problem. So the short Watson after finishing with four wins, and this Easterby, dude, and I'm reading from the S. I Oracle. This Easterby guy has this end the year Totaled, like team teams there. He gives this long, long winded, rambling message to the team toe where players are leaving it, and they're saying I'm pissed off. What the hell was that? Right, Like they're so furious after these air. Some players I don't know about all players, but the tone of the conversation of players afterwards was yet we're screwed. This guy is nuts, and he has no idea what he's doing right? And the owner doesn't see it that way. And I think I think we can all relate his sports fans. If we've had a team that is bad, and They can't seem to get out their own way. Examples. The Knicks bad franchise that starts with the owner, the Mets now old Mets, and they just sold her team right. Bad franchise starts with the owner. The Bangles Bad franchise starts with the owner, even Connor Greens jets. That franchise starts with the owner, and I like the coach that they hired. I think that'll go a long way in addressing it, But you know where I'm going to wear like Daniel slider for so many years with the Redskins or the Washington football team, bad owner it starts with him. Right. So Cal McNair he was described in this article in Sports Illustrated. Connor. Do you know who you know The movie Tommy Boy..
What Would It Take To Get Deshaun Watson to the Patriots From Houston?
"What would it take to get the Sean Watson? A complete meltdown on the situation in Houston. I just think I think the the odds are very low that extremely low that Nick Acero his first big move in Houston is going to be trade DeShaun Watson. Who's one of the few bright spots on that roster. He's tremendous it would yeah. I mean it was it would basically have to get to a situation where Watson doesn't want to show up. I think I think this area is going to sit down with him and his agent I think they're going to reason he's going to explain why he's not just a continuation of Easter be you know, Brian and things like that. I think Nick can be persuasive. But one thing I would like to see Nick is I would love to see DeSean DeShaun Watson go to Cal McNair and say it's either me or Jack easterby to see what McNair would say cuz I don't know what he would say, but it would certainly be interesting and I'm off.

"National championship game tonight. Ohio state fan alabama from hard rock stadium in miami The question is can ohio state. Keep up and you say we'll did you watch them against clemson. I say yes i did. So the question is what's going to be the key and for me. The one thing that stuck out the most aside from the fact that justin fields went off is their domination. at clemson. at the line of scrimmage if you look in this in this Football game do we know if waddles been cleared yet is a game. What would have we heard jd. If it's a game time decision savings said yesterday. Truly gametime says he's got to go through the workout thought so today we don't know yet right so think about who they've got. I mean from devante. Smith to najji harris to mac jones to an offensive line. That was the best offensive line in the in in the country. this year in alabama. Then you go sermon. Who's what what's the average with. Three hundred plus in almost two hundred last week right. The last two games guys had over five hundred yards rushing. Yeah so they dominated line of scrimmage. You know that alavi that they'll make plays on the perimeter. They've got justin fields. Both of these teams coaching staff from top to bottom is off the charts here. Think about this. When's the last time you went into it. Thinking ohio state alabama's defense is ain't got much sharpness. The over seventy five and a half. We had taken the over his fills the over each take but then watch be a game. That's just seventeen. Fourteen are one wept skin going to be like thirty one. Twenty eight at halftime. I would. Yeah i would. I would bit towards. Yeah that's what. I'm leaning. I i would take the over eight and a half points or how eighteen hundred dog now. If they both play their best. I don't see how ohio state keeps it close. But i'm gonna tell you well. I don't believe in game two game momentum ohio state. We've seen this movie before a handful of years ago during the what was it the the the were they in the semis state. Bolt would beat him. Forty two thirty five zero final score was something like that. Yeah how they beat him when when was a cartel jones's according to panel. I'm just wondering if i think. See all the primitive. I think both firms are gonna make enough place. I do now get certain. Who's a hell of a player. There's great players all over the place on both sides. There's ten supposed first rounders in a game. Yeah this year. I'm talking about just this year not to mention the freshman herself. There's probably that will be in cleats in uniform and helmet tonight. Forty first rounders between the two over the next four years. Think about it. Yeah probably is over the four five years. There's probably that many of them between these two teams. I don't think. I think they're going to make enough plays in the perimeter bowl teams. The key is gonna get one or two stops. So you're gonna have to win it. At the line of scrimmage and that sounds so cheesy and forty four game it is yeah and so the question is who's going to get more stop so i'll let you pick i pick the score and pick the winner. I'll take alabama. I think it's a choice. It's a tin. I'd i'd do a no choice. But i also think they win. They probably win. I'll say i'll say forty. Say i'll say thirty. Eight twenty eight thirty eight twenty the underwood's take on. Yeah okay fair enough heavy. What's the biggest who's the mvp game that jones case. So i mean devante. Smith's gonna do his thing but they're going to be throwing a frigging kitchen sink in and the one thing that one thing that we saw thought it was great from alabama in that game against notre dame at least early it that they were clearly going after devante smith. A bunch right. Notre dame was throwing the book at him. He still got three touchdowns but sarkissian is so good at adapting like quickly and having other game plans to he knows what you're gonna be feels like he's ahead of you if you're if you're crazy enough that single devante smith you deserve to lose that have easily play man. Now walls healthy now. Ohio states job just gets tougher even him out there. Just as a decoy. No question all right. Every t- what you got s- thirty eight twenty eight housing what you got. I'm gonna pick alabama thirty five seventeen you'll continue to throw disrespect. It'll how state wall clemson boat race. I have i how they gain my respect but how hard is justin fields. That's just my question. We don't know he took a vicious rip shot against clinton he took a nasty shots of the ribs. I heard that he had trouble breathing. I mean we saw how drew brees played when he messed up his ribs and then he got hit and it got worse. How how healthy. That's that's my question and then the question is those drugs. Better be good right really. Yeah hey. I'm gonna go completely off the beaten path here because everybody's got i'm gonna take a hi steve. I'm taking ohio state spread wise. Okay but i'm taking alabama win a game. I got it forty. Four forty one. That'd be that's a good game. I can get down to the game. I'm kind of hoping for not like whether up seventeen and the team gets two late touchdowns. And as i wanted to be where it's a field goal drive now so i'm going crazy score but i both forty four forty. I'm thinking both offenses live up to it. That feels ready to go. And we see the best that both have to offer. That's what i'm going with. Ohio state gets inside the eight and a half but alabama covers. I mean alabama wins a game and take the over. That's my pick wild. Yes but you. I'd rather be that way. Yeah me too then me to. Yeah so thinking. I don't think i'd bet the game. Let if i was suggesting i'd say take the over. When they set up. That high usually happens that high now. This game was like a fifty six over a big wall. Yeah i'd be. I'd be concerned. But they they know something and when they know whether that high i do. And i'm gonna take alabama by field goal that it's closer than we think. And that's assuming right that the fields is going to be right. Who knows maybe it sets up for the backup to come in and play out of his mind right. They're going to need feels without fields on the field. It's in playing his best like he did against clemson. It could be tough and in a forty four forty one game you say the trenches matter they actually because it'll take just one or two time too because you know somebody on fourth down and two at the thirty eighth going for it right you know at some point. That's that's coming down. They're going to go instead of kickoff field goal and could end up being the difference in the game. You gotta go with the analytics go. A lot of teams are doing all right. Forty four forty one. Thirty eight thousand eight hundred thirty five seven thirty four thirty five seventeen thirty five seventy five seventy mc comes in last can please bring the breakfast.

"Your platform all day and we've had some great trade opportunities. Some that are a little little much some that are not enough and some that are perfect but i love all the banner you guys all have. There's at least something and all those trades you say. Okay if you had to consider. Sean really wanted out. That battery wasn't gonna show up even though he's under contract but i'll say it every break if you're not trading mahomes you're not trading watching. That's my feeling. I believe that if the kansas city chiefs had to shawn watson they still be the number one seed in the nfl. I believe that one hundred percent and you can't tell me any different. The difference between mahomes and watson is the difference between one and two is closer than the difference between three two and three in this league. I believe that. And i wholeheartedly believe it. And i'm a raider fan manual. What's up man. How you doing good morning guy is going good morning. Hey coming from a different angle on this i'm bronco san. So i'm going from denver angle. I would like to say this i. It would be a pretty good as soon as their trade First i we'll start off with locked He's known up becoming player not great yet but he can. He can become something we'll give you three first rounders and two number twos and then we can also throw somebody in there like a lawn miller and courtland sign. That was a cute offer. We'll backtrack present. You said lock three number ones courtland sutton two number twos and von miller for it. Yeah i think that that would help you and your defense and get you off is going to get worse now. Von miller von miller. Football's behind him drew. Lock average right. Now yeah he but gimme courtland. Sutton is a budding star in the league. Three number two number twos plus. Von miller and courtland sutton unlock by. I would listen. He never wants makes it read. The other three are just to throw ins. Although courtland sutton is going to be a great player in the league. I think but the kind of quarterback to get it to them. Yeah so many thanks man. That's interesting three number ones. And three starters is an interesting prospect. I mean you have to listen at least. I don't think john going gonna do that although john white john would love to do that because he'd finally have a quarterback since peyton manning he'd be like oh my gosh here's what here's the thing you know. Hugh see. here's when you're making these types of deals the biggest guarantee of all of it is it. Watson's going to help the other team right. You're going to lose this trade by a million ninety at least on the surface unless they really need a future. You're gonna lose his. That's why you're not making this d. period you're not even entertaining the thought of it. And he had you're gonna sit back and say but they shouldn't that that's the thing like they shouldn't. They have to go on their hands and knees to him begging for forgiveness to save pleased by back into us to send the right message to players across the league to your teammates currently to the league in general. Because you are literally the franchise we let ding-dong air go up there and say a bunch of stuff and look an idiot. And we're sorry for doing that. We need you now more than ever. I'm going on a station in miami today on a show this afternoon and i'm wondering what the buzzes they'd be willing to do for watts. All them as they should. I think i think we're addressing your. That's a great point bring. We're talking about all these scenarios or anything every frigging city would just dr- david give up. They would give everything they could to get this guy. I could say cities it would love it right now. I mean a lot of but it would have reason to do it right. You don't have reason to do it if you're in seattle got russell wilson. There's no re shit right asia. There's no reason to do this if you're arizona. 'cause you'd have to give up your starting quarterback that you traded a for you know what i'm saying that you'd have to give up your starting quarterback and like three first rounders which you here you don't wanna do kyle murray and i do too thank cada. Murray is going to be special as well right. So you not see started pittsburgh. This would have this. Some pittsburgh would love to do. Yeah if you could get watson because it assures there is no transition matter of fact no disrespect. Been your better with watson at this stage. Seen be pittsburgh last night yeah they would. But i'm not sure they now would but i still think yet but the problem is they wouldn't want to give up the three or two first rounders that goes with and players right. That's what they wouldn't want to do especially since it's their first they finally. It's been like eight million years. Since i got there but they would you also wonder would tampa start to consider this not right and play season. What forty four. Yeah it'll be forty four next season. He forty three. So but i i don't know if they'd want mortgage the fee but if you give brady get your super bowl and they turn around and say well he's got into this bill but then again you have to say time you're not playing anymore and would they be willing to do that with tom walkathon. I don't think he's walking winner loser. She i don't think already said that he's planning right for two more. So let's say they're out jets would love it. The giants you'd think would love it. Even with daniel jones washington would love it. I mean we go. Jacksonville would love it. The problem is i wonder what their fan base is saying about. If they're even bring it up. Would you trade for watson for lawrence. I wonder what they're fan did. Not with the the smart move would be franchise injects talking about it. I wouldn't think. I think they're talking about. I can't wait to lawrence. Come national title game the way we should probably in the last six tonight you discuss. Who's gonna win we go sitting around doing busiess hale and light a couple of times popped up on. Oh my god the national to fathom. It's going to be an early morning tomorrow brother because if this game close it's going to be a late night tom. You're going through this and it's like oh the oh by the way but the does she ask an alabama starts getting boat race to get turned off my house. Miami pittsburgh jacksonville. I wouldn't think we'd be talking about the jets. Oh yeah we'll get if smoked right. But there's there's a lot of out west. I don't think the rams would do it. Although i think i probably polio rain they do it. I don't think mcvay in that front office. Wanted to give up that. They'd have to give up that they also had to give up to get. Golf is my point right. I still think they would. Plus they don't have a first round this year because of the ramsey too right exactly so that jalen. That's exactly right. They gave that up for jalen ramsey. Last well what during during training camp or is it. Beginning season earned during the season last year. It was at the end of the year bread before the deadline. Right it was not it was it was like middle of the year. Six seven games okay. So so there's isn't a major quickly. This season came around. Cova forgot that it's here because this is jalen ramsey's this is his first full year in los angeles. Yeah but they gave up a number one for him. So what the rams would but the problem with all the the prospects you'd have to send or the the the draft capital you'd have to send would be a problem so but there are a lot of teams. The question is we gotta be smarter than this. And you can't make movement. He just can't know it is can't like i said it would have to be an offer for me. That was so blatant. That you say okay. The franchise can turn around in a hurry right in a hurry. Yeah and there's no quarterback south of that you'd get in return that turns around as quick as watson. Does the problem is. There's no draft capital here. That turns around as quickly as you'd like it to. But i'll take my chances with a quarterback that i will a first round draft. Pick this quarter again. If to sean was thirty. Thirty one. Thirty two i could. I could have the conversation. He's not though he's not there. You go have. You even have the conversation at thirty six about aaron rodgers. You ain't having a conversation about anybody else that age right now. You go sports. Talk seven hundred. We'll come back. Break down the national title game. Yup there is one tonight.

Put me together a package. It would be worthy. We've heard a couple on away your past first rounders to second rounders from jacksonville for watson. I'd have to take that call. But i'm not sure jacksonville would do it because of lawrence pub and buffalo tra- davis white josh allen and a first rounder to for the buffalo wouldn't do it because they think of josh allen the way we think of the shawn watson interesting lot of good thoughts. Miami may be a player. But you'd better come at me with something huge or i'm not even thinking about answering your call for my guy. The best franchise builder. Not named shawn watson named patrick mahomes in this league sports. Talk seven hundred. The hottest tastes force. Mostly team sean. Salisbury show continues. I must go on sports. Talk seven ninety. I got a train for you. would you listen to this. One chase claypool sack around her. A third rounder and three number ones from pittsburgh for. Jj watt into shown watson. No i need more yeah. I'm ben in there too. Big a salary right need more track. They don't have a quarterback. I want now anymore traffic. I would actually say. I want the i want now. I wouldn't blame you. That will the that isn't happening. Well i how about this house you give me all those draft picks i leave out. Jj watt and you. Send me tj one. What if i send you sean. Better by after he rehabs but depre- three number ones to number twos for the shawn watson and. jj watt. No i would want. I want to play pools involved in that i want. Tj an bud debris three number ones to twos for watson and jj watt gonna win my fan base back of. I'm trying not to shawn watson. i need to get the other here. I would if it meant getting tj. I would be fine with taking just one first round pick. Oh yeah we'll hell. Yeah guys best demeans. the top. Three top two defensive player dispossessed top three in the league he myles garrett and probably both the the younger bosa went healthy right. Yeah actually during the break. I thought about a trade myself that i thought might be interesting. See the problem with mine is that have been was like five years yonker. The problem is. I'm not getting a quarterback in return. I'd have to draft one. And here's the problem with the steelers pick. It's too late to get zach wilson or in one of those guys trae lance or somebody like that are just fields. You'd want to build around now. You turn around and package out and move up but then again you're back to this. Why would i have to package to those first rounders to move up to get the guy already. Having to sean watching the reason why. I said claypool and bud dupree get an edge rusher. I get a really good wide receiver. Who's young and under a rookie contract. I get three number ones and number. Twos jj watt gets to go play with his brother. And i get rid of watson if he doesn't want to be here and he gets to franchise working with a title and i got news for you if james if sean watson's in pittsburgh lookout afc. But i still if. I'm the upside around as the gm. I i would have to consider the pittsburgh offer as well. But i'm losing without getting a quarterback in return. I'm not ready to start the backup here as my guy that makes sense. Yeah what are you going to say. You're is. You're always thinking chip shawn watson to chicago and in return you get khalil mack. And the next four years worth of first and second rounders and will use that as a start for negotiation. So you're saying you get eight draft picks and khalil. Mack for sean. I think like. I said use that as a start. I mean you ask high and then you work your way down to meet in the middle. I think he's at least on the draft picks on right course to me for one thousand fourteen to me too much. Nobody if anybody calls for show watson. I'm saying it takes at least five first round picks like i said i know it's nuts but like this is the franchise player i know right but i'm i'm i'm like just like the james harden negoti like i'm i'm standing pat anything then. There's a real nobody when you start to think about guys that have gone for trades. You start to think well listen. There ain't nobody who loves lots of more than me but you get five shrouded form and we know zhang four. I think you're gonna get three sooners three. I understand that i completely understand. I'm not saying we should get. I'm saying what you would get first off wei trading him. Yeah let's segue jacksonville's not giving lawrence into other first rounders plus.
"cal mcnair" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Think about this. You know a second team. All pro. This year. Josh allen behind aaron rodgers you know who was the mvp year lamar jackson josh. Roses trying to find a football team. He's got the ending san francisco trying to play. Sam darnold may be traded. Baker mayfield started to rear his head and played really good football. And that's the five of them right. That limited buddy out. That's the five so you think about it. The two guys that were supposed to be Blah of the group. Meaning the biggest questions going in. You know who is the one who had the least amount of questions. Golden supposedly was josh rosen. I mean when you talk about where they said most nfl ready. I'm talking about during the whole season leading up to right. Then all of a sudden he drops down. Baker has you know has a great year. But i'm just saying when they said most. Nfl ready right. Now is josh rosen. He was the least. Nfl ready of the five. Yeah at least it appeared today right but it's just amazing. How getting coached up and what they've done. And i was watching josh allen. Make some of the throws he make his feet. This is going to be if buffalo place kansas city in this. This is gonna be one. Hell of a dual. Isn't it great quarterbacks. With some explosive playmakers and then you look at baker who's fighting and scratching and played really well in his play outstanding football this year lamar jackson when he's doing what he did yesterday. He's the most difficult one to stop because he just was maddening with his great legs his feet so the poke the. We'll come back discuss sports. Talk seven ninety much more to discuss about. These texans lakers putting on the The rockets wasn't good. It's just a mismatch We'll talk about their more. Nicosia were here. What he had to say about the shawn watson. And let's stop worrying about trades. Right now to shawn watson not getting traded and less sanity leaves the building.
"cal mcnair" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"I prayed to god. That cow mcnair gets his feet held to the fire today. Like the houston media needs to absolutely grill his ass in do not let him do not back down from anything. You know what you should do not to be personal with it of course but you should have the thought processes going in of making him one to walk off the call. Because that's the kind of questioning this man deserves because we don't hear from it's been two years since he has publicly spoken to the media. Let me ask you something. What are the odds on this. Zoom call three chairs one for caserio one for mcnair and jackie's to be as well from the pr email. It says it's going to be mcnerney in caserio and that's it. I would be beyond shocked. Suddenly jackie should report jackie's being spoken to me at all as the interim. Gaap spoken to the media period. Like he made a statement before the season when they had their initial bill. O'brien was still here on one of the zoom calls. And do it on the sean thing about his character but it has never never done an interview with eighty body. Since he's been here he's not going to get out and speak to the media. You know why. Because again. I can't he. There's a reason why. The guy was pushing to sports illustrated to try. And i want to help with your story initially. They said that he reached out to them because he got wind of the story being done. He wanted to help with the truth. Who does that con artists. Somebody's trying to control the narrative. Control the story. That's what jag easterby does. He is a liar. We have seen that with his resume. There's ever is the world to question his credentials again. This man has the ear of the owner. This has nothing to do with nick. Caserio it has nothing to do. I mean look. It goes back to their football team. Sucks outside of the shawn watson. they suck the play on the field. This year sucked the coaching sucked. Everything sucked about them. They are the definition of suc- the biggest reason why they suck is because their players suck but there's layers to it. Obviously they how you get there. I'm tired of sitting here. Having to say they suck. I want to be happy. I want to not have this feeling this pit in my gut every single day with him. I don't know when it's gonna end. I don't know if it ever will. All i can do is hope. But if you tried to shawn watson i promise you i swear to god i'm done. I quit and everybody else should quit on them. As well said one three two one two five seven ninety. It is sean salisbury. Show get in here. Your thoughts on the mass that continues with the houston texans as we roll along till ten. Am right here on seven hundred. This is the sean salisbury show. Sports talk seven ninety. Hopefully i talked all the listeners and viewers off any craziness about the dan. Dan dan s as he does great questions and And he made the point of. I wouldn't have given. If is the owner deshaun watson that promise in the first place right understandable. We've said it but if you do you gotta live right exactly completely so there you have. It's great to be back. Emcees here heavy not in the house. Heavy heavy take there you go. That's the kiss signal right. Give me the kids. You gotta stick your tongue out when you do that. That thank you kissed. The you've heard of in band kiss right yeah right. They can't see it because you know. Stick the tongue out and give the hook them horns sign. That's the kiss. Look you name me one song by guess this is just a legit thing I don't know. I gotta think malek you think a fair enough. We need we get into specs. Drink of the week. We enjoy the frigging. Both old fashioned will be the drink we'll talk about. I could take one right now. And i know it's early but need one with all this stupid nonsense. Yeah you got the second best quarterback in the world and we're even. This is even entertained. Thought stop at front office hopefully they. They're not entertaining at all. Mike welcome man how you doing. You got soon great. Hey so. I i listen to this zip recruiting at while i was on hold and i just thought how fricken ironic that is couldn't tell mcnair use it recruiters Second thing or just us or just us. Mike what i can make his job easier. M semi you. Heavy t i. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this one out it's awful so Real quick i enjoy all show. I don't i don't call in that often but Like a lot of folks. I'm just so long about this I suggest we just call him cow. Don't care instead of mcnair. 'cause the dude dude obviously doesn't care what we think In the second says i'm old enough to remember that old Snl character that al franken food called. stuart smalley. Yes it was. Just you remember that. Smarmy character he did. Oh yeah well. So i guess jack easterby is like his evil twin brother and his just taken over our organization. That's like i just listened jar just killing me. We got a classy Talented to be you're right. Why give them that option. Often the discussions look up to. This is just awful. Listen to you. Thank god great. Great great call eight. Thanks for listening. Seven three one two five seven ninety. You hit it perfect. We've got a classy great character. Filled superstar quarterback who all's you had to do is live up to your promise that that's all i had to do. Yeah you didn't have humane. And dan made a good point to me about mike florio. He talked to mike floor about and floreal said that may be part of the reason. I don't know if this is the this factor not but said that part of the reason. They're not interviewing eric the enemy because if they don't hire them it looks worse than if you interviewed him basic and i just i'm not. I'm not saying. Mike agreed or dan agreed. But the speculation for me is because what would it have a worse. Impact on the sean. If you interviewed the enemy and didn't hire him. i think. I don't think so 'cause then you could say we'll here's the reasons. Why simple but you made a promise and who knows in. Here's the thing if airbnb blows you away in the interview with his resume. Wow what shots higher. Yeah so bad so does and quit worries. Here's another coupe worrying about what could happen. And let's go find out what will happen. Start talking about to count mcnair in go interview and quebec. Well what are people gonna think we're gonna. I'm gonna think a lot less of you if you don't interview hit the best of apparent best candidate. I'm going to think now. Does that mean results in a super bowl. I don't know. Yeah but i'm gonna take a lot less of you respect you a lot less. If you don't interview the best candidate when you have an opportunity to rather than just choose not interview and say well. We just didn't want anything because if we didn't hire that's the dumbest reason ever well. What if we don't hire and then you say he wasn't.
"cal mcnair" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"I think you go with one who already won a whole bunch of games and that's marvin lewis. Yeah he's held such high regard by people in the league. John for me. I be enemy. Shouldn't be sneaky. It should be obvious. And which leads to chewy question the dysfunction of the front office because you not at least interviewing the guy that others are interviewing who liked nick caserio resume says best resume available. Let's interview whether we hire them or not for me. It's been arthur. Smith is a sneaky candidate. I love what he's done. Offensively i think that the leadership from everybody i hear says that he has great leadership which matters to me and i love his offense now whether he calls a player. Hire somebody else to do it. That's fine but i love the fact that they get in a gun that they get under center that they move the quarterback did they throw him from the pocket. I actually love the way it goes this. And he's made jonnu smith a better player he's met. Aj brown a better player davis coming around and tannahill over the last twenty five to twenty eight games. Whatever it's been has been one of the best quarterbacks in the league over the last year and a half he just has the numbers bear it out. So arthur smith would be my sneaky candidate. But eric would be a candidate that i it should be obvious interview before we go john. Great job on four dance john. Where does the texans rate when. It comes to dysfunction and nfl franchise right now. I'd say they're right now. Battling jets as being one of those dysfunctional. I mean the jets certainly had a bad stretch and They still have to see if they can climb out of it. But i think that you can see the uses right now right up there with them as one of the most dysfunctional because again they just can't figure it out. It seems like what he's doing john. I don't think so. No i mean you know. I thought that seemed like you know. He operated in fear of bill. O'brien and then of course. Now he ends up. Firing bill o'brien but it's like is he able to you make the right decisions now again. They got zero but again it's like okay you a bill was able to get the deal done with The shawn watson. I did get done and now you don't pull him into the loop when you said you're gonna pull him into the loop. Johnny great stuff couldn't agree more. This is awesome. It should be a great football week in six games. We have seen this one. I'm looking forward to it. And i can't wait to talk to you next to your happy new year and hopefully a great twenty twenty. One brother wildcard is what it's called. That's exactly right brother. Thank you johnny. i appreciate. That's a professor john clayton. We'll come back and discuss unwrap the kick your ass. He did what he kicked your ass. You know better that. I loved the professor. I hadn't had my ass kicked ever and guess what on the field the half. And guess what's never done in. Kick my ass debatable. Whenever you tell yourself to go sleep. Mike golic said we all believe that we're better than the other guy area by guy. John clay the best sports. Talk seven ninety..
"cal mcnair" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"The Tolbert Kruger and Brooks T. K B on KNBR, 1045 and 67, ft sports leader. So did Sean Watson Fields that Cal McNair By the way, is a world class food. McNair, the owner of the protections if you feel like Like he's just the son of but the richest Bob McNair. Right. Isn't that yes, Yes, he is. He is the son of a boob, which of course, makes him a boob. If he feels like McNair live to him, I'd get you being mad about that. Really, really, really do. But just because you want to be traded, don't mean they don't treat you and what is he going to do? You could demand a trade if he truly feels like He was disrespected by McNair and didn't want to play there. But what if you don't get what you want? What if they don't trade you? Is that Shawn Watson not gonna show up to play football and Late summer early fall. No. He's gonna show up. Uh, It's to me. This is a nothing story. But again, I understand if he feels like been there lied to him. He thought he'd be involved in the process in some way, shape or form and he was excluded from the process. After hearing from the owner of the team that we will include you again in some way, shape or form. I get that. But you could be mad about that all you want to, But if you feel like that's man enough to where you want to get traded. They don't have to do that. How many times are we gonna go through this in sports? Just cause you demand a trade. I mean, that's gonna happen. Well, The question is who's got the leverage? Right? And was, I would say normally in the NFL. The organs, the owner, the management that they always have the upper hand, but In love in in this scenario, where you're the franchise quarterback who's already signed to a deal and you're going now introducing a new general manager in a new head coach to the equation. I doubt they want to start that equation with Um, you know, hold out of the most popular player in their franchise, So I think you're not going to hold out what it is. He may he may He may not. But all I'm saying is in this situation, don't you think to Shawn has a little bit more clout. A zero run of the mill NFL player. Well, he's not a run of the mill and NFL player, but he started saying, but he has zero leverage. What is he not going to show up? Is he that entrenched in this probably hypothetical scenario where he wants to be traded. Is he that interested where he won't show up? Of course, you got the heating of show Perotta is and you know, maybe he takes his disappointment and displeasure in the camp. But when the season starts, he's going to be behind center. She's this Ain't the NBA. Yeah, right. Yeah. I just know he's got no leverage, and we trade didn't get credit. No, it's just that that's not going to happen and How much is it going to get How much is going to cost for you to get him? Well, I would just say, I don't think there's any doubt based on what you what the price tag has been. You're the price starts at three number ones. So that right there is going to scare off a lot of the suitors because nobody wants to trade three number one draft picks for anybody, but in this particular situation, you're talking about a franchise quarterback. Who's entering the prime of his career who signed long term. The pre June cap it for the Texans they're saying would be about 21 million. So it's bad, but it's not like what Phillies facing Orlando or Minnesota's facing on their quarterbacks. If you wanted to make this problem, go away, if you know this is all assuming that he's real serious about it and once was, but you're assuming that's an actual problem. Yeah. I mean, I'm assuming that that Sean was lied to by McNair that he was told that he was to be part of the process that's cool or not, That's more than accurate. But I mean mayor. When the hell are you doing, telling a player you could be involved in the hiring of a coach and GM? I mean, don't be. Well, that's a world class. Boo! Break there. Take your play. We hire We will ask you your thoughts, but maybe we won't. But I will just we're gonna do we do. It's like why would you die? May I know why? Because these guys want to be friends with the player is it would have a good relationship with the player. Is that what just You know what you do your job. We'll do our job. You think Bill A check is like a talking to players. Maybe even Brady Lake. You know, we're thinking about hiring a new What do you think? Uh, ability is going to do ability thing is best for the team. That's an extreme. Example. And I've always said it's okay to include players in a conversation. But to tell the play you're gonna be involved was KD and Kyrie asked about Nash. You think Yes. Probably Probably I would. I would think. Would say basketball's a little bit different, because boy the leverage those guys have And you're trying to get both of them there, Right. Don't carry their aunt Katie to sign there, So you probably give him some incentive to sign. But you're talking about two of five players. Basically two of five starters football, just like a totally different animal than Acknowledge each other sports, But I don't I don't I don't mind. Having input. Like a what do you think? You know what kind of guy would you like? But, I mean, we we did shout. Watson's gonna have any idea about a GM. He's following G M's that closely like Who do you like as a new GM? Like what? I could see him say is a coach. This is kind of the coach. I would like, you know that this that this type of coach baby Michelle Watson just said Hey, if he's not O'Brien, I'm good. Just got O'Brien World world were all the talk is that he wanted the talkies is that you know, and I don't know if any of this is true. But the talk is is that Shawn was told that he was gonna have a voice in the thing that he had strongly voiced a strong opinion about Eric. The enemy. How it sounds like Josh McDaniels. According to some of the reports that it's McDaniels job to lose. That's Azari is gonna try toe rekindle the whole New England thing and bringing Patricia as the defensive coordinator and McDaniel says, the as Thief coach. Um, And maybe he feels if you know, Here's the thing to you remember this? I mean, Rod knows this all too well to Shawn may not be feeling too good about the Texas to begin with, and they just trade away the number one receiver that he had, you know, so he there already starting from a point where I'm sure he's got frustrations, and then you could be frustrated. But what what do you going to do about it? I think he's got leverage here. I really do. I think he's got the leverage to do it. Because I don't think I don't think they want to start a new regime with their face of their franchise, holding out not playing and unhappy, so you you genuinely believe on from him is not going to play. He's not gonna play. If this is all true, he's not gonna play. No, No, I don't think he I think you might try to leverage his way somewhere else. But how? When's the last time we saw that? I'm just curious. Who can you guys remember when the last time we saw that in NFL? No, not not predraft. We've seen it a couple times, according to the draft, But I've seen it. I mean, MBA. Damn it simply, it happens. But through two or three times a year or somebody leverages their way at a town, But I just can't remember it in football. We're gonna usually it's with your contract looming. This is a guy who's he was just about to play. You're one of a four year $156 million deal. So it's but the way the Texans have the thing structured, they could get out without A crazy penalty that would just ruin them. Why would they do that? On Lee on Lee ifs on Lee if they felt like they want it, want to start fresh and wanted to Didn't and they felt like the with the owner's going nowhere. So if Shawn tells you Hey, I don't trust the owner anymore. I don't wanna play for him anymore. Then what then? Don't say, but you also don't get paid. And there's no way to Shawn Watson is given a prime years of playing football and prime earning years..
Houston Texans Fire Bill O'Brien as Head Coach
"Texans owner cal McNair has fired bill. O'Brien as coach in GM as of Monday afternoon the. HOUSTON, Texans are on a winless start to the season and. There have been some really questionable trades and other. Moves that Bill O'Brien has made or not made to improve this football team. I think unfortunately, the McNair family who owns the the Houston Texans I think they're seeing a window that is remaining open for a championship as you have to Shawn Watson a very exciting quarterback and you know you've invested on the offensive line, but you got rid of his best weapon in De'andre Hopkins and. Shed some other players Bill Brian is ruffled feathers of players in the past. If. You remember seeing this team on. or seeing Bill O'Brien on hard knocks. He's got kind of a mouth on him and you know it. It fires people up for sure but it also can work against him. Rub some people the wrong way and you know I think it was time for the at least the Texans felt it was time for them to move on but that's that's two vacancies in one their. Head coach and GM. more details to emerge there but that look I mean we can criticize the Bengals in what they've done. Really. Houston's been pretty successful. They've made a lot of at a lot of playoff appearances and they beat the Bengals a couple of times in the playoffs in the Andy Dalton era. So I understand that there's a little bit of envy there but for right now and how They hit what some of the moves they have made of late is really got to be called into question and. You know. Bill Brian now because of those controversial decisions is now out of a job,
