Doubt and Aaron Rodgers mind which have a whole lot of during a whole lot of times. Aaron. Rodgers doubts himself I assure you or doubts his team but you've got to do it early if he comes out and has a great first quarter, you're screwed big big time. Big Time. So I I was trying to think, okay what's the rent? Well, you hit it. Do, we got personnel that can do what Tampa did, and then you can continue to respond in score on their defense. Yeah. Maybe get a quick pick six a quick change turnover at midfield fumble where you strike quick with your own touchdown the problem is. This guy doesn't have these like I said once able to picks. Like I said yesterday it's been four years since he's picks in a game you think you think about that. Do you blinken most quarterbacks with two picks in a game, just by a tip ball to two picks in a game and for him I don't know. I got a blueprint. The problem is the blueprint. Doesn't have the foundation to build the house yeah. Per makes sense perfect example. Read Matt Tom we say the the. You're laughing at Aaron got a blueprint dope blueprint to build this house. But yeah, blueprint looks at Danny unless you ain't got the money to put the House up, right? Yeah. They don't have to bloop blueprints. Fine.

The Falcons who are more consistent with the Texans in terms of overall team pad and defense wise bad could be evasion. They hit Aaron Rodgers. Once. So. That's the turnout form right? The bad lost thirty two sixteen. Okay. So you lose by two touchdowns and Just going to look and see what Rogers did in the actual game. That's the twenty seven thirty. Pretty. Good. Yeah. So I mean. The Vikings and other the. He did Williams them don't hit a great quarterback you got. It, it's you don't live. Do you don't hit an average? Screwed. He's been sick seven times a year total that you don't need an average quarterback and one of them were in the last game right? You don't. You don't get an average quarterback they'll beat you hit a good one. You're in trouble you don't hit a great one. Light out they'll deliver party hats. And that's what he's capable of doing. All right. We will continue to discuss this Aaron Rodgers Pete Doherty in about fifteen minutes I if you guys out there have an answer. Honestly. It's funny when you ask for an answer, there's not a whole lot of people have an answer right? If you got one, what's your hope? What the? Texans this week against Green Bay a one in five team are you still in the playoff hopes? What does this week mean to you or is it just whole home? It's the packers Aaron Rodgers were screwed.

"It makes a world of difference I had mine on again yesterday and guess what my likes feel terrible today but my feet don't they feel fantastic. That's just because I do too much on the leg day but my feet again feel great for my run because I had those new balance shoes on my feet and I? Want you guys to experience it as well. It's not just about those running shoes. They do have those awesome look in lifestyle shoes as well. They're going to put you into the perfect fit no matter what you're doing, and you're going to walk out of there and say I am never going to the store and buy my shoes off the shelf again. Uh so get into the two locations uptown and the woodland's the uptown one is the spot for me. It's just over here in the Galleria area off of post oak that woolens location just off Kirk up there for you people on the north side. So getting their today goes through those fit specialist at. New Balanced Greater Houston. Bill. Inch longtime friend. This is the Sean Salisbury show. Their. Tremendous. Who Does he's really good. He does a good job at the line of scrimmage controlling the line of scrimmage getting Gaza jump off sides. Oh, he does a good job of recognizing the defense. Knowing where he needs to go with the ball and he's got weapons around him that he uses you know he'll use the stable rang back at they have usually they have a big tiny end. That's he likes goes to they got good receivers you know, and so with all those weapons just like I mentioned with with our guy if he can spread the ball around, you have to cover them one to to a degree are choose who you're going to double and he's experienced. So he can figure out what the double is and then you can go somewhere else with the ball. That's Romeo coronel talking about Aaron Rodgers and boy is he ever? There's no better Hard Count Snap Count Guy and? At it seems like every game at some point he gets you to jump off sides and then while. Man We jumped outside she'll continue the plan throw touchdown. He's best heart a thousand times times against the bears on national TV. It's like there's Aaron taking advantage somebody's the. Defensive. Back flat-footed after their offsides, he plays it out. It gets a big player, throws a touchdown and everybody's like what what, what he is the Best Snap Count Guy in league. So you can count on at some point third and four him using it and extending drive because of Aaron, rodgers moves seeing the Texans defensive line do it Yep a couple of times this year at least this is the best and if you're and going in, you know this. So you could also be a little hesitant which means you get off the ball errands the ability to change up his snap count and not use the same cadence voice inflection. All the time is been masterful for him. To Call Romeo Cornell would like Rahmael doesn't intricate. Male Nice changeup pitch sometimes like that. It's more formal Rahmael Cornell. About know how does that fit now with that last name? Romania CRA Nell Rahmael What do you think? Work it doesn't not with Cornell. It doesn't. Get the maybe with a different last name. Chronology.

"I'm going to tell the team go ahead to Sean or is it like now we squelched that after I went up to the team and said guys keep playing ball nobody's going anywhere. So does that mean? Oh, Texans are out of the running if they could've traded four dudes for three draft picks their out or leaderships one thing. Running the entire show let me explain to you something. It always goes to the. SAGS MC I'm here the phone number seven, three, two, one, two, five, seven, nine, you want to chime in. I've heard this and I've mentioned this before. When coaches leave wooded players say a lot of times when the coach gets fired a lot of times I'll coach didn't deserve it. You deserve better. A wish he wouldn't have got fired well then what we say well, you should have played better if you loved him that. Much. Right. So in this case with a team that's one in five. My quarterback who's really good and I liked leadership and his input. Gets to tell the team that nobody's getting traded. So does that so so what happens all the sudden they trade cop for the day tree if they did trust stills. Shawn's mad. Stupid you. The Accountability Fall is a fall on. We'll deschamps really not got the year of the team and the guys look at to shot I thought you told us all they nobody going anywhere. If they're not even trying to shop guys into Sean? Squelch there's like that. He was allowed to do this this organization's Never GonNa Win and Talk Scott loud this week. I. Mean Not only on our show I. Mean, I, kind of talking about last week but. I mean with Green Bay town in needing wide receivers in the Texans being this bad and having wide receivers. Does that make sense for that team? The talk I'd even louder over the last couple of days and Yeah. Sean is throwing his weight around without talking to anybody. And then something does happen. It's just A. This organization. Maybe, it's just not bill O'Brien like we've been saying obviously on the field he doesn't tackle and do that kind of stuff. But fascinating to me. This was no surprise that Chamot's would say something like this. I honestly we've been sitting here talking about tearing things apart and trade and things and everything I've had zero expectation that they will trade anybody because that's what they do and you know what I'm not I won't be surprised if they don't trade anybody but here's what I don't understand. Is it? No offense. Your team's not playing good enough for the quarterback to dictate with the personnel does your one and five Peyton manning didn't get to dictate most of his career what the personnel didn't Indianapolis and he's got far more skins and trophies on the wall. Then our quarterback here now over the long haul, Sean may be that guy and he's a hell of a player and I've always said as I said earlier, I, I'm all for you stepping up if you don't like what's going on to go back in the room when Bill Brown's here Tim Tim, you know what? A the guys feel more comfortable. This do I don't like that good coaches do oh, you don't like this. Let's let through after the week practice. Then then we're not GONNA call it. Why would you get that? And if you go to the Sean and say Hey Sean what do you think man he's confident in private and he says you know what if we get the proper for I just don't feel it.

MJ Hegar wants to bring Texas values to the Senate
"MJ Hagar Welcome. Hi. Jonathan. Thanks for having me on. So okay. I I had a set first question, but I'm going to ask my own separate question and that is we started out the clip intro this moment. With your doors add. You ran when you ran the last time to me was one of the most powerful political ads had seen perhaps ever was it important for you to tell your story in that way? You know I think part of why it was. So powerful was the moment that it played in. In that moment people were. Being exposed to the horrors of family separation, for example. And the fact that it resonated so much with people almost. Sad. I want it to be successful, but it was also kind of disheartening to hear so many people reach out to the campaign and say, yes, that was me I had doors closed in my face to I've been trying to advocate for. Disability rights because my child has down syndrome or whatever it was that they were trying to be heard by other elected officials and they completely You know empathize with that that experience of going to DC and having your elected officials closed door in your face and treat you like if you're not a big donor or you don't have any political capital to barter with and you don't matter. And so it was kind of a bittersweet thing. It was great that it got the campaign so much attention but it broke my heart a little that people were. So gut punched over family separation and and so used to their government just not working for them that the message really resonated with people. And so you you lost that. That that ad was made for and now you're running for for US Senate most polls I've seen have you around by points within five points of Senator Cornyn the Cook Political Report classifies your race as likely are which I expected to be solid are given whose Senator Cornyn is from your perspective how is the race looking? Well you know I mean if you I love you know just talking about like the INS and outs of the data although I do think the data shows. That, we have a much better shot than Beto did against Ted Cruz a lot of people think that beddoe crews race that if anybody you know. If we couldn't beat Ted Cruz and we can't beat anybody in Texas. It's actually not true independent voters really like Ted Cruz Ted Cruz had a fifty two percent approval rating when he wants went up against Beto. and. Better almost beaten and John Cornyn has an approval rating of anywhere from twenty eight to thirty two and the vote exactly the same way, and so you have to try to figure out what the differences between the white has one why once a while popular in Texas and one's not And, the reason that that John Cornyn is not so popular is because he there's not an independent bone in his body. He just does he's told he does as he's told by his corporate special interests he does he's told by his party leaders and. You know that's very Texan. It's very Texan to have backbone and grit and integrity and stand up for your principles and so You know I don't really look at polling that much. Even fivethirtyeight recently said that Democrats in Texas are always going out will recently at least maybe not always are outperforming the polling in part because you poll people with a reliable voting history and we've been forty nine hundred fiftieth in voter turnout for decades. So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. So I, have every confidence that. After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. Willing to do more. I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. Want.

Judge blocks Texas governor's order limiting mail ballot drop-off sites
"Ah federal judge in taxes is blocking it order from Governor Greg Abbott that limits the number of locations where voters can drop off mail in ballots. Matt largely of member station Kut and Austin reports seven Rabbit issued an order limiting each Texas County to a single drop off location. No matter what the population of the county is Harris County, where the city of Houston is has nearly five million residents. County had originally planned 12 drop off locations before it was limited to one. Abbot's order came as a record number of Texans requested mail in ballots, and the Postal Service itself warned that it might not be able to reliably deliver ballots given Texas's mail in ballot deadlines. Voting rights groups sued in federal court, arguing the move amounted to voter suppression. A judge agreed to temporarily block Abbot's order, ruling that there was no credible reason to limit the number of drop off sites. It's likely the state will
Bill O'Brien: Head coach fired by Houston Texans
"Coach Bill O'Brien has gone from the Houston Texans and nobody can say they're surprised last January. He had his team up twenty four nothing over the chiefs in the playoffs then got outscored fifty one to seven. But as a coach O'Brien can at least say he won four division champions in six years. It's as a GM that he made. You scratch your head in one year he traded former number one picture Davey clowney to Seattle he traded two first round picks a second round pick for Laremy Tunsil and Kenny stills and the whopper of the mall. He traded the Andre Hopkins to Arizona for running back David Johnson as of now. Johnson is thirty seventh in the League in rushing and Hopkins leads the NFL in receiving. Yeah.

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,
Patrick Mahomes - He Just Keeps Getting Better
"Seemed impossible that Mahomes could get even better but somehow the cyborg has done an update and he's even better than he was, you know last year in May 2018. What has he done in particular to me and I think to the two obviously to everybody just watches him a couple of times a year and in prime time and stuff like that. It's the handling of glitches. But Monday to watches them every single day and every single week, you know, where has he really grown and matured I think I mean the really the the blitzes thing is such a big deal and I think it's important to parse out exactly what's different because it's the sort of thing that people often miss when they're watching the game, you know, calling out protections before the snap is one of those things that we can't necessarily see on film off when it's done. Right? I mean you can because you don't have a free runner or you know, you've got a free runner but in the you know, the they just lost the ball right over his head right and what you really see is when it goes wrong. And it was the case a lot in 2018 and less so in 2019 where there would be free Russians that Mahomes and he would make something happen by doing something weird, you know jump in the air and spend three times and throw them all lines back something weird. Whereas now you're seeing things they just look a lot more effortless to them. And so if you look, you know, everyone watch the Ravens game and I think a lot of people watch them Texans game as well. The Texans really tried hard to mix up their coverages and try to confuse them homes with various zones and try to sit on things over the top and say hey, we're not going to give up the big play and he just he was constantly getting the ball out in in under two seconds just to the to the where the Zone vacated or where he had an ideal match up in man coverage. So it's that pre-snap stuff that you don't necessarily notice during the play the the comparison. I always give to people and this is obviously like the gold standard whether you talk about like managing. Brady if you look at a lot of their highlights, it seems like they're always throwing to the first guy. It's like wow, they're offensive scheme must be incredible. The first guys always open but no that's the result of being Superior in your precog breeds. And so that's where he's he's sped up his process quite a bit and he's gotten significantly better at calling out the protections before the snap. Right
"texans" Discussed on Around the NFL
"You lose that first game all of a sudden starts to get a little hot under the collar. So Noah playoff schedule right there i. This team up a lot in and west probably tires because I think even compared. One of your softball teams. One of the shield teams to the eighty nine forty niners. When I came home and I'm rooting for the Texans because the chiefs beat the night drinkable. Right. Ceo Thinking that team I think they ended up going fourteen into. Closer to like within one or sixteen in our juggernaut. Schemes ever right and the thing was every week. You know if you WANNA be someone that's out there thinking I'm rooting against the chiefs I'm waiting for something bad to happen like you are rolling uphill because it's just they just has a look of a team that is going to just find new ways to win become more powerful by the week and you know we all know a few chiefs fans and they kinda struggled. And suffered for a long time with teams that came close now you have a team that got there in just a question of how many more they can win at this point and I don't like to jump too far ahead because these things don't happen that often. But this is a very different situation than some of the other one off super? Bowl. Winners we've seen before I'm with the we we'd be remiss that dimension. Some of the pre-game stuff that the Texans stayed in the locker room. Like it used to be back for the first you know seventy eight years of the NFL they never outside of the locker room for the national anthem until until the last two decades in. Their Safety Justin reads they consider delaying the game they had talked about You know whether they would come out late you know and have the game start late as as a way to raise awareness, they decided not to do that a state in the locker room you know the teams locked arms at midfield in the chiefs crowd that was there booed them pretty hard core at that moment with which was interested. We won't see that like in in other stadiums, but it is still just a sea change. To, see the league itself kind of embracing that with the messages on the players helmet. It's a IT'S A it's a lot different than it was when Colin and most and most stadiums are gonna be empty on Sunday but it was interesting vibe. It felt like week for the preseason in terms of the crowd where you have about fifteen twenty, thousand people in their people are cheering but because it's such a big space in its open air. It just doesn't have the same energy, but it's going to be better than other games that we watch him. Be Stupor odd. Super Odd this this week I think it. I think it can be two things which will be odd. That's on of course that that is true but I also think it's a TV sport and The. Quality of plays good and the replay I don't know it just it's still felt like, NFL football to me. I think we're also getting a little bit used to it. I. Mean we're whatnot. Football will be a whole different world than baseball and basketball. But how long did it really take you to get used to watching baseball without fans? I'm not saying it's better or worse but I mean it's not that jarring that I can't functionally deal with it as a human I mean it's weird year hopefully, it doesn't stay this way but. I don't know I mean normally a big baseball fan I've I've hated the experience with no fans feel it takes away a lot of the like energy and for football you could turn that up and multiply by ten arrowhead should have been going bonkers tonight and that would have added more excitement to it but that's just yeah that's the cards we've been delta's a as the world right now it is what it is. Well, there's also the player that might not care, and then there's the other player. There are other talked about how fuel off the fans I think football. You know what all the sports, but there are certain football players. Might turn in a different performance with eighty thousand people cheering them or doing them. All right. That's it for the recap of Thursday night football a reminder you could check out the preview of all the week one games that have not been played yet on your whatever wherever you listen to your podcast. It was an episode we released released earlier on Thursday. So make sure you check that out and then come back of course Sunday night. Our flagship program of the around the NFL.

"Thousand people at Arrowhead Stadium Yes in the rookie. Clyde Edwards. Was The star on offense for the chiefs running for one hundred, thirty, eight yards and score. Then, Hans us here along with the rest of the Heroes Greg Rosenthal, Mark Cellular and Chris Wesseling and West. This was not the type of game that you come to expect from Patrick Mahomes in the cheese where they're just wowing you with big play after big play. But at the end of the game you look up, they have thirty four points in their crews and passed another team that simply had no answers. And that's not counting the best. Throw the night which Patrick Mahomes put on demarcus Robinson's hands in the back of the end zone and he couldn't come down with it could have been a forty point gaming. You're talking about not hitting their stride quite yet. And relying more on on the rookie running back then the passing game so. As Greg set at one point late in the game, I'm here rooting for the chiefs like. To root for the Patriots. Just out of pure excellence in football right I mean you should be able to appreciate excellence greatness. I. Think. This is what Mahomes is what this team's going to be. In a reminded me. So much of the playoff game against the Texans in that. Okay. You can show a lot of different things defensively early and Chris Collins worth is going crazy and Dan is really getting excited about dream weaver, the attractive new defensive coordinator for the Texans Anthony Weaver and it's like, wow, they're really coach Jenin. They're mixing them up and it's like, okay, that's great for like two or three drives and then Andy Reid and Patrick mahomes kind of figures out what you're doing tonight, what they needed to do to win with just the slowly move the ball up. So it's okay we'll do that and we'll have thirty one points with eleven minutes left in the game and When you were doing well early, it was like one punt and drop touchdown in the end zone. You really didn't do them it just they make it look so easy. It's wild point to their drive. There was a sixteen play, ninety, one yard drive the made it fourteen. You, get down fourteen seven of the chiefs. It feels like a lot different than it does to other teams that that eight nine plus minutes off the clock. I just there's another thing that stuck out to me. We spent months saying that you know week one if it ever even happened would be sloppy. It would be a hot mess that even you know veteran laden teams would be figuring themselves out one penalty by the chiefs for five yards and in. Greg spent part of our preview show on Youtube live session talking about how Andy Reid historically. With the chiefs has come out and drop bombs on teams in week one in there were a lot of issues for everyone this time around. But I thought they got cleaners the game went along and they just simply look at they had to win a little bit of a different way today but I see a team with Edwards e layer who gives them a totally new dynamic in the backfield and they get interception biology need their fourth-round cornerback. They have younger players adding to a team that seemed invincible year ago I'd be a little bit. A little bit terrified if I were in the AFC west or parts beyond. I mean I wouldn't hand out lollipops just yet. Let's see the rest of the week one schedule because the the chiefs have continuity on their side and they have Patrick mahomes offense. That's pretty much constructed as it was last year But listen this is a great great team and by the way yeah, I don't know what the scientists were saying but yes. Oh. You should be able to truly appreciate greatness, right. But when it happens twenty straight years and that teams from the Division that your favorite teams and maybe it's not so beautiful. It's not some ballet on the Gridiron. But whatever for now, though I, agree with you because I'm not a huge fan I don't have skin in the game, but it is fun to watch this team. That's a now a juggernaut. It's defending super bowl champion that it feels like we're just getting to know this team at this is going to be a team that's in the mix and is going to be a high-level power in the NFL potentially years to come and you know on the Texan side of the ball. I thought you know a lot of the same issues. deandre Hopkins isn't there and I know will fuller statistically when you look at the box score, it's like look he stepped right into hopkins shoes but that's really not what happened here Kurt Warner I was listening to a little bit of the game on Westwood One we went to wesseling manner with. A Western. LAKISHA. Oh Yeah. Young link and West mother-in-law and we we were watching the game and once it got out of hand in the fourth quarter Droebak in Kurt, Warner made a good point. He was Kinda getting on the roster construction a bill O'Brien's table a bit which is listen when you have this many number to establish number two receivers. Tricky to like ask somebody to become the number one guy and what was happening too much in this game is what tends to happen when the Texans defense offense gets bogged down which is. Plays aren't opening up and all of a sudden. You see the Shawn Watson dancing around trying to make something happen desperately, and that only goes so far and we saw that again you hope that's not a sign of things to come for the Texans this season, but it was today it was today they struggled to protect him and they couldn't get anything open deep Titus Howard. In particular struggled in pass protection that was the problem and I and I think that that point by Kurt, Warner is fair but also with the Shawn Watson is so used to looking at the Andrea. Hopkins and throwing to him and key situations whether he's covered or uncovered, and it's going to take him time to get used to these new guys I. Thought it was interesting that. Randall Cobb and Willfuller played twice as many snaps is Kenny stills and Brandin cooks. Cooks is at an injury so that partly explains that but you wouldn't have known cobb played that many snaps mean. I think. For twenty three yards. It's a lot garbage. Offense I was impressed though by the chiefs defense I mean this is a reminder when Frank Clark and Chris Jones together and healthy, which they really weren't for most of last year until the very end when their defense played the best they played all year. That's a really. Strong tandem in..

"News right now on NFL Live Adam Schefter. What's going on in Minnesota Bollore moments ago the Minnesota Vikings place their defensive end to Neil Hunter on injured reserve which means he must miss a minimum of three games which means he's out for September the soonest he. is in October against Houston and that acquisition of Janaka, in God way now looms larger than ever before hunter injured himself midway through August he will not play this Sunday. He will miss a minimum of three games and they'll be up to the other vikings to try to replace him. Yeah. Their first game against the packers that already seemed so significant when you hear that news mark the, let you go first what's the first thing that comes to mind? Is these one of the most underrated pass rushes off to am what Mike Zimmer likes to do defensively and at four three one hundred. Perfect. Thank goodness for the trae because then you'd be devoid of to pass. On either side, it's tough to hear Neil hopefully, the new rules would our he can come back I think about this though as before I pass the ball, they played Green Bay a divisional game where you need guys to get after the PASA. jalen holds his backup don't have to step up. This is a big loss for the Vikings Echo you say this enormous I was going to take Minnesota to win this game, and now I will take green bay think about it like as an offensive person, the play call. Right now, Matt Leflore in Green Bay. I'm going okay. Now I don't have to worry about dealing with to defend defensive ends we can shift and slide in send a lot of our help to in Gaza side and this gives Aaron Rodgers as significant in the higher greater greater level of comfort. So this is a huge huge loss for Minnesota one huge loss from Minnesota, Aaron Rodgers to your point probably pretty thrilled about happy. Hey, all is though in this off season have been on New England the break-up that happened there. Was More to prove this season Tom Brady or bill. We'll be able to fill a full week of rest on one breeding is no good. If he doesn't play one that's fresh, I can't do his job and we can't do mine. Would I be successful without him? The same love looks trapped I don't believe I would have been but I feel the same vice versa as well. We played it other times without Tom, do we always do is proud of care the team the best weekend. This team makes the playoffs. It would be bill valid greatest coaching season of. Joke. Tech can't wait with his say the players are made by the system. The players don't make the system. Brady and Belichick are the only player coach duo in NFL MLB NBA Nhl History to spend twenty seasons together the to dominated with Brady making the most playoff starts in NFL history others under center for haven't fared. So well, posting a combined eighteen and nineteen record setting up one of the best story lines of the two thousand twenty season. Cam. Newton in foxborough still quarterbacks aren't everything. Sorry. Dan Orlovsky sometime for some quick reads with the most non quarterbacks important non quarterbacks week one key I. I would say it's the kill Harry from New England. If you look at the big receiver that was drafted in the first round out of Asu have limited time for games regular season. Last year twelve catches. He's got to show up and be a bit Red Zone Target Cam Newton. It offense Kinda replacing that Gronkowski doing some things there he has a big body. He's got to be able to separate quick. We don't something he struggled with in the past. How about the most important non quarterback than that packers vikings game shocking Kitaoka received from the pack twelve. I'm GONNA stay Green Bay packers wide receiver Allen Lazard in the games against Minnesota last year Davante Adams had. Twenty two, twenty, two, you had four, forty, five, I need you to step up really start to a certain herself as the number two option for Aaron, Rodgers in this offense I'm imagining Minnesota's GonNa pay a ton of attention to Davante Adams and you should have a great match of one on one got to win those consistency this consistently this weekend most important non Cuban cowboys Rams Marcus. Receive I'm. GonNa take a deep into Blattman, and arguably the best guy in the league including quarterbacks Aaron Donald Listen. So disruptive he can totally switch a game plan you have to count for him every play and remember this guy's Travis Frederick is no longer the center suing the Dallas Cowboys. Now there's Looney they have to work that interior to help everybody had the double and triple team. But when you lose all pro pro bowl, the center he. Making more problems than you can handle this rams cowboys matchup is fascinating according to FBI. It's actually the closest of all the week one games, and so we'll see how that turns out. But here's the thing about Dallas. It's always like they've got all the talent in the world and that's their story and yet maybe they don't always win the super bowl or even get there. Obviously. So Marcus, what's different about twenty twenty if this is Dallas is year. Housing anything different as far as than win the Super Bowl I think they can. But all all thirty two teams failed like that. But Dallas has a realistic shot because every year we look at the roster and say, why wouldn't they be appointed a super bowl conversation quite frankly they hadn't done it and Mike McCarthy obviously coming to make a change from Jason Garrett gared is a big reason. We say it that. Wouldn't get over the hump but I don't think this is going to happen in Mike McCarthy's first year I believe they'll be a team I believe they'll have some success to lean towards the future but as of right now talking about Dallas winning the Super Bowl I'm not on board with those conversations. Well, I don't look at the players in this situation I look at the coaching and I look Mike McCarthy, coming over. And I look at Mike Nolan the defensive coordinator. Then when you look at these situations, you got a former super bowl winning coach. Mike McCarthy you have a very, very well respected DC in Mike Nolan. I can only go off experience being being with coach Dungy a team that was ready a lot of talent. We got rid of coach Dungy Dan we bring in John Gruber. GRUDEN. Didn't set the world on fire. From an office standpoint, we tweet just enough to Kinda get us open up the defense continued to play solid and sound, and we did our job on the offense side of the ball. We heard a new voice kinda like Jason geared voice has been there for. So long the you had a young DC and Chris Short players get tired and to net out when you bring a new voice in Bam things happen instantly. A great point because I do believe in that listen, I don't think the are full. You know I this is a very talented roster I'd say this if they were to go into the playoffs and win the Super Bowl I, it makes me think of two things really one thing. As. NFL players is pro athletes and sometimes men we kind of really want to be respected and you can make the case that their quarterback Prescott does not feel respected by his organization and he's at this point where he's going to now demand respect by his play. They've given them all the tools to go out there and do it, and it makes me think of the Joe Flacco situation in Baltimore and he was in those negotiations and he's he said I deserve this money like I commander earned this money at this value and they said, no, he looked at Steve. In, the owner said I'M GONNA win a super bowl I'm gonNA. Make you pay me that money. That's the only way that I see the cowboys going to win. The Super Bowl is if their quarterback raises his level of play to a level that kind of just forces this team to go on this big playoff run because they're talented, they lost a bunch of close games last year but a deck prescot becomes a different animal and he demands the respect from Jerry Jones in that organization by play then. This team's good enough to win it. All right. They win eight and eight last season and they didn't fare as well as we thought they would keep would you say that the cowboys are GonNa make the playoffs this year.

"Build this football team because all those years when the defense was the stronger of the two units on their team yeah they were getting in the playoffs but were they really contenders. When you talked about getting getting to a super bowl and the answer was no right. They had to get better on offense. They had to get stronger. They had to increase and improve the quarterback back production brian hoyer of the world the brock osweiler's of the world it just wasn't getting it done for them and bill o'brien knew it and now they have to shawn john watson and watson has shown that you know what he's more than capable they've given him weapons at wide receiver they brought him another one here in kenny stills and they wanted to make sure they could keep them upright right than anything else and that's why they made the tunnel move and now when i look at the houston texans okay and i know they lose lamar miller to they've tried to piece it together. They made the move to bring in carlos hyde here just to add some depth to running back. I get it but if you're looking at the houston texans right now if you ask me clearly. I think that shift has already happened to where you're looking at more of an offensive first team and i think that's how you have to be. I think that's how you have to be and moving away from today's van clowney and moving on from him. I think also add some testament to that as well aided eight say e._s._p._n. Is a telephone number.

"Dolphins never liked him to begin with while he was coming out out of the draft last year possible but i just think if you've already made these moves and if you've stocked up on all these draft choices you might as well see what this this guy has so then when you go into next off season you can then no one way or the other we need a quarterback or we don't need a quarterback. The ryan fitzpatrick thing makes no sense to me whatsoever. None whatsoever rosen may not turn out to be any good and a lot of sports. A lot about being successful is opportunity. Is it not josh rosen so far. He's not going down very good. Wrote say what you want about arizona last year. The offensive offensive line was garbage. He was not in a situation that was conducive to him being successful now. He's going to go to miami and trade away. Their franchise left tackle. He's pricing himself. Oh my goodness when i get on the field. Is anybody going to be able to block for me at all in the national football league so he's heading down a road which may not make him successful. This will may not make him a desired commodity in and around the national football league and there might be some underlying circumstances as to why it's not just on the player it was josh rosen going to go down the road of being another derek carr.

"They can both maybe grow with the program at the same time. That's why you see so much. Roster turnover in the national football league specifically when you have coaching changes isn't regime changes like gavin miami and they've been adamant in the last couple of days since these moves happened that we are not tanking no way no how we're not tanking. You know what you could say that they're not taking. The dolphins can say that they're not tanking. I don't know what word you want to use. Who's as far as i'm concerned and try to win this year. I can promise you that. The dolphins are not trying to win this year so they could say that. They're not tanking. Hey if they win four games this year. I'd be surprised but they're well positioned for the future. Dolphins now have two picks in each of the first round in each of the first three rounds. I should say in the two thousand twenty drift. It's pretty good. It's pretty good good but sometimes all those draft picks. Don't necessarily bear the fruits that you hope they will. I always say when it comes to draft choices you. You can have fifty million of them but unless you hit home runs with those picks what good are they and if you're a fan if you don't have trust in the folks that are making those selections. What good are they. I mean do. I have to take you back not even too long ago. I know the cleveland browns are like the darlings of the n._f._l. Right now and everybody thinks that they do wrong and they're going to be in the super bowl here pretty soon but a wasn't that long ago where the cleveland browns have draft choice after draft choice after draft choice remember and then they swung and missed on virtually all them and they were like a joke around the national football league so so it serves as a reminder that yeah you can have all these draft choices that doesn't mean that you're going to strike gold with them and that's what you got to be careful with your the miami dolphins you know tunsil especially and i remember everything that happened with him on draft night and there was controversy that was surrounding him back on draft night with the viral picture and all the other stuff but you know what he's blossom into a pretty good left tackle in the national football league easily a top ten player at the position and if you're miami you know what that would probably be a position an area of need then now you have to go searching for because you had one and and you traded him away for draft choices. That's something you've got to be careful about and you know look. I wasn't expecting a lot what about the dolphins this year i really wasn't okay and clearly the moves that they made here in the off season showed you they had one eye towards the future but because of that that and you could say that they're they got an eye on to tongue of iowa and hopefully they're going to pick first or second and they're gonna they get their hands on the alabama quarterback either him or justin herbert of oregon or somebody because you figure they need to find out who their franchise cuba's while while why do you then go ahead and decide to start ryan fitzpatrick this week against the baltimore ravens ryan. Fitzpatrick is a good guy. He really is okay but you know what you're getting ryan fitzpatrick. He might pull a couple of throws at a you know where he he might go off one game but then the interceptions are gonna amount and he's going to revert back to the main and then you're gonna see ryan. Fitzpatrick has been the definition phoenician the enemy of a career journeyman. You have josh rosen. You made the move for josh rosen. Josh rosen was a first round. Pick a year ago and it's costing you essentially very little to see what you have in josh rosen it is an affordable foldable one year on decision to see if this guy is going to be part of your future not but maybe the regime with the miami.

"You know is that adequate. I don't think so and by the way you're paying half his salary ellery so once again the seattle seahawks who i don't know if we're going to sit here and put the seahawks in the category of super bowl contenders in a team that you know you may think could go all the way this year they still got a lot of work to do but seattle and john schneider and that organization show you why they've been a well run team team over the last several years and they have a super bowl championship in the last decade and they've been competitive even as they continue to turn over this roster they continue to be competitive and they probably will be again this year because getting cloudy for what they got him for right as i said a couple of journeyman players and and a third round pick and you've got other team to kick in some of the money for the salary what's better than that what's better than that right now so if you're the seattle seahawks and it's another example of why they get it and why they've been so competitive if you think about the moves here dating all the way back to the off season season for the seattle seahawks john schneider they made the move to trade frank clark right they moved on from him and nisa centrally turn frank clark into today beyond cloudy ziggy ansah who they signed of course as a free agent in the offseason season l. j. collier who you drafted with some of the pictures you got in the frank clark trade brilliant maneuvering <music> by john schneider as far as i'm concerned brilliant maneuvering and that's why they get it and that's why you look at the seahawks and you can never discount their chances on a year-on-year route basis can't say the same thing about the houston texans. I mean houston more often than not if he asked me. They've benefited the last couple of years from being a division in which was kind of up and down the best. Am i right or am i wrong. They have a lot to prove here winning the a._f._c. a._f._c. south with a nine seven record granted. They weren't nine seven last year. I know that but in a couple of other cases they were and people kind of scoffed at it because you don't take it as legitimate and the only reason you're sitting there is because you have an inferior division and hey somebody's got to win it and remember that sparks all the conversation about whether that if you're an inferior division and champion whether you should even get a home playoff game and they want and fans want the n._f._l. To go about changing the way that it distributes playoff teams and awarding home games and so on and so forth. I'm not going that far yet okay and hopefully we don't have to deal with that moving forward but it is what it is and it happened okay so they move on from cloudy. They don't get enough compensation as far as i'm concerned but they don't stop there because let's face facts when you're talking about the houston texans their biggest commodity right now. Their biggest investment is shawn watson gave their franchise quarterback. He is the guy and they have. I've been looking for the last couple of years to essentially find a replacement for duane brown. The franchise left tackle and now they think they finally got one in en- laremy tunsil in a trade with the miami dolphins okay by all accounts. This is a pretty good move. He's under contract for two more years so you don't have to worry worry about the money as far as that is concerned and if we remember what happened to houston last year and specifically shawn watson to shawn watson got sacked sixty two times in two thousand eighteen they that's a lot of hits. I don't care if he's a mobile quarterback. I don't care visa strict pocket passer..

"If you ask me the texans did not handle this situation as well as they could have breath first and foremost when you talk about the role that this player was going to have for this football team this year all right. We know there are some easily easily. Some talented players on that side of the field for the houston texans a right. They've got some playmakers on defense. But what did you know so then you ask yourself a question. If you're gonna pay baby unclogging all this money is going to reap the rewards big picture for you and i think that when you look at some of the dollars have been thrown around to some other players like for example we just celebrated the one year anniversary of khalil mack getting traded to the chicago oh bears and you think about the whole that the raiders got for him and then the money subsequently that the chicago bears had to pay the player. I don't think i'm alone in saying that. Cloudy is not in the same category as khalil mack. He's not you know we thought it was. Maybe going to be the other way around coming out of college into the draft. We thought cloudy. It was gonna be superior. Player and mack was a guy who played at buffalo where the competition certainly wasn't as good as it was in the s._e._c. He made an impact down there but you wonder if that was going to translate translate into the national football league and it has and then some and he has become arguably the best pass rusher in the national football league clown. He's not bad he's. He's just not on that level so if you're houston. I think you have every right to say yeah. I don't think the player is worth what he was asking but then you better at least get it's something good in return and that is where we can sit here and examine. Did they get the best offer they could have and more importantly. Did they handle it the best way they could. Have you know you you think about the houston. Texans right. Now and cloudy had a little bit of leverage in this situation all right. He chose not to sign the franchise tag. He stayed away from the football team. He had every right to do so what the texans should have done here if they didn't want to pay him. They should have traded him before july. The fifteenth july fifteenth was the deadline of course. If you had a franchise player that was the deadline to sign him to a contract extension that is when the texans should have made sure he was no longer on the roster because he kind of saw this day ultimately happening because he wasn't gonna sign the tag. The team wasn't gonna give them huge money that is when they should've shopped them to make sure they got something to him and he couldn't be traded until signing the franchise tender and now look at what houston ended up getting in return for what twenty five cents on the dollar if that you know. Do you think that this player fire who still i think on a good day is one of the better pass rushers in the national football league one of the more feared players in the national football league you send them to the seattle seattle seahawks and you get a third round pick and a couple linebackers arkadiusz mingo who's been nothing more than a journeyman so far in his career. That's what you got form..

"Brought to you by straight talk wireless and this past weekend teams finalizing the roster lot of moving and shaking guys come in guys going as they all set their fifty fifty three to get started here for the beginning of this regular season and the team making the most news the last couple of days clearly the houston texans and the texans are an odd odd team in the sense that it's not like they've been unsuccessful the last several years under bill o'brien they have right. They've won three division titles under this head coach. They've only won the won playoff game and you can make the argument that the only reason they won the playoff games because the raiders were playing with a quarterback who was probably not equipped to start a playoff game that was remember when endeavor car went down with a broken leg on christmas eve so it's not like they've been a bottom feeder. They've been actually pretty successful. I think that a lot of teams and a lot of fans would certainly certainly sign up for what the houston texans of able to give them the last couple of years but they had themselves marquee player in today the uncloudy and you knew that eventually has contract was going to be coming into an end and your face with one of two predicaments you can either pay the player or you can look to shop him and get something for him. We know how everything turned out and we know today. The uncloudy is now a member of the seattle seahawks and we'll try to wreak havoc on the quarterbacks in the n._f._c. west out in the great northwest. But what about the houston in texas did they handle this the right way because not only did they trade today be on clinton to the seahawks then they go ahead and they make the move with the miami dolphins and bringing a franchise left tackle tackling laremy tunsil so there's a lot of things to unpack here with houston and specifically the way that they kind of just fine tune this roster over the last forty forty eight seventy two hours and make no mistake about it here guys. This is a team that is acting without a general manager but it is clearly bill o'brien show. He's the one one that is calling the shots. He is the one making the moves here for this football team and it's going to be his you know what on the line if the moves don't pan out now clearly the shape of the a._f._c. south has undergone a little bit of a change over the last couple of weeks with the andrew luck news that he was going to be retiring and the colts turning over the offense to jacoby percent. I get that but you looked at the houston texans team even when luck was figured to be part of the mix for indianapolis and he thought that they had a pretty good chance chance to do some special things here again in this division and in the a._f._c. but let's start with the cloudy situation here first and foremost before we get into the move it they made with the miami dolphins and when you look at what they did in shipping the player off to the seattle seahawks clearly they could not come to an understanding which davey uncloudy in terms of the value houston clearly didn't want to pay the guy what he thought he was worth so they were left with no choice but to send him packing to seattle here. Now look today began cloudy. Has he been a bus definitely not but his been the so-called..

"I don't think I agree. So let's get to the preview portion of this show. Ben let's go eagles offense redoing the Texans defense. Ben this defense this Houston Texans defense is going to be a bigger test than I think most expect and you're really hearing much about it, which I get your coming up a big win over the Rams, and that's the story right now. But looking past the Texans would be a big mistake. And that saying that the eagles are. But I think the media is a bit. We were gonna talk about this before the show you wanna dig into that right now why you think maybe it's not attracting maybe even with all the record. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Why is the perception of this game different than what we think the reality is to degree to which you might liken it to being a trap game. Michael. By the way, I'm calling this five percent trap game. Not not even until you the there's a likeness there that you you you sleeping on the Texans. Looking ahead. The character of the trap game is that the your perceptions about house being treated, you know, like in the media and impresses is vastly different than how we've you it. Which is why we feel to be a trap here. Looking that characterised the same? It's very different discrepancy that we're talking about here. The thing is this Houston. Texans game wasn't supposed to matter right likely vehicles. Beat the Cowboys. Then what you would have a sumo was okay? They lose to the Rams. And then this Texas game matters, Tom. They have to win to stay on top of the Cowboys to the division. That was what the problem fall was. Visit us the Cowboys like all right? Well, they're not gonna make the playoffs. Now, they have to beat the Rams in order to do it. And then if you the Rams which rerate microcosm for how the yeah. Exactly. If you don't this exactly how this has gone. The Rams and now the Texas game matters again. So because we had that week off of like are they have to win this one. And this has to lose that one after make sure they don't lose more than this week off between the Cowboys in the Ran's, we're now back into okay? So if they beat the Texans, and so very much. So the conversation we've been having up until now, which is Wednesday night has been okay. If they beat the Texans, which is not mulling over in steamrolling over how difficult would be the Texans. But it's just so much of over interested right now 'cause it's playoff push. Because the eagles are on the bubble the seven seed or whatever so much of the conversation. We're dealing with right now is just okay. What happens if they'd be the Texans? What do they need happen again to the playoffs because everybody knows that they lose the Jackson's if pretty much done right again outside shots, but pretty much it's over. So that's what we're talking about. Now, a time to talk about what it will be the taxes in order to be the Texans..

"Oh man. Is it getting later Lee for the NFC east and loud early in New York and interesting weekend for all parties involved. That really came to a nice crescendo last night as we got to Sunday night football, lots to get to there in the NFL. We've already got some answers and major league baseball in the postseason coming off the weekends and some more coming up in cluding, Aaron, judge making a nice statement walking out of Boston continues to make this guy the premier Yankee in this franchise in the perfect Derrick jeeter substitute. Now we'll get to all that. Shortly after we talk about Sunday night football because the Texans beating the Cowboys on its own is note worthy. Texans moved two and three on the year. After a bit of a lacklustre start, you've seen this team rounding into form. But you look at what it means for the Cowboys and for the NFC east and what a strange year one where we thought. The Philadelphia Eagles would continue to have their stranglehold on this division would pick up where they left off last year, especially once Carson Wentz got back on the field and healthy. Thought that the giants maybe infusing saquon Barkley into this lineup, getting a healthy, oh, Beckham junior back. And of course bringing back a UI manning that gamble there would pay off for them and everywhere you look, this division seems to.
