36 Burst results for "Texans"
Fresh update on "texans" discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"They'd be in the playoffs right now. They have a really good defense. That's going to massacre brandon allen. But if i'm playing fans. I want ryan patrick at quarterback. This is a better offense with fitzpatrick than it is with two. If i have devante parker i'm mike sixty maybe i'm streaming michael sticky at tight end i want vets at quarterback are Let's keep it moving. And let's get to the colts and the texans. Jonathan taylor just came off the kube wall we recording. The texans don't have will fuller so. There's a lot to get to hear joe there this this game. There's a lot to talk about. By the way. The texans also have a big up e. d. suspension on the defense as well. Cornerback bradley roby. What happens happened when bradley roby was out for disciplinary reasons. In week number. Nine against jacksonville. While jack jake gluten who has since been benched when twenty six thirty eight for three hundred and four yards with a touchdown in a pick in that game So jake luton's been benched. And he's still threw for over three hundred yards against the houston texans in that game. Obviously his first completion was that long touchdown to dj chart. This is a good spot for michael pittman to bounce back after a poor game. But i do 'em concern. Philip rivers have been dealing with a toe injury. He did not look good last week against tennessee. I wonder if that's really affecting him and going to jonathan taylor has been this guy he gets put on the list as a contact In the same game after he finally had like kind of that breakout game. We've been waiting for and in the same game that he missed. Jacoby brisac gets to sneak touchdowns. You wonder if jonathan taylor would have gotten those opportunities if he had been in the lineup So just a snake. Bit and kind of rookie season for jonathan taylor. But this game against houston. I would think taylor. And nyheim hines or both kind of flex plays here. I really like michael. Pittman t y. Hilton finally got on the board. With a touchdown. I still trust him. I i like michael pittman as a low end wide receiver to high and wide receiver. Three i would love to be able to say stream philip rivers in this game. But i'm a little bit concerned about his toe injury on the other side. The texans offensively without will fuller. Now i don't know why they let case dove go so they must not have have seen this coming. Because you would think they would have. Kenny stills still on the roster if they had anticipated willful or getting opt for. Bbc's i don't hear is i don't know what does shawn watson has done to piss off the football. God's bill o'brien trades deondraye hopkins for cents on the dollar will. Four finally is having a healthy season and then he gets to pop for. Pd's obvi- i mean. But i i don't know what what those these were. But they worked apparently because they kept him on the field Unfortunately deshaun watson who's playing mvp level not gonna win the mvp because the texans aren't good enough but he's playing mvp level football right now playing the best football of his career and now he loses his number one receiver. So i was reading. Aaron reese at the athletic. I was reading right before i came on air. And he said there are a number of guys. Step up kiki cousy. The product was the prodigal son. Who's out of the doghouse. That bill o. Rien put him in. He's going to have to step up member randall..

What you need to know: Detroit Lions vs Houston Texans on Thanksgiving Day
"Let's go into tomorrow's games. The first game is the houston texans at the detroit lions detroit. Lions are plus three Let me check the money real quick here. The fifty nine percent of the bets are on the texans and percent of the money is on the texans. The line just got shut out. Texans had a big win against patriots. started you michael. What do you think well. I think i got the injury report for houston for the for the alliance because they weren't the same team. My mouth stafford was healthy in that game. I'm not saying there are good tv. You know there are three and three the last six games but i think that they weren't healthy. They didn't have golladay staffer. It wasn't healthy swift. Didn't play if those guys are playing and healthy. You know that you've gotta take that into consideration especially against a bat houston defense which you play run defense really well as we gave up a tiny arts but they were able to shut down the patriots from running the football. And you know and you look at it they. They've allowed one hundred thirty two points to houston in the last five games and only have created three turnovers houston doesn't create turnovers and allow points and mvp and the shawn watson is having an mvp type season. He's averaging over eight point five yards per attempt. He's only had one one point five interceptions. I mean percentage wise. I think he's been really good. The game doesn't set up good for detroit because houston's too fast on offense detroit too slow on defense the concern you have if you wanna play this game is is what good can use to do against the the lions defensively because if there if the lions aren't healthy they can play well so i think that's the concern is where is the lions helped the factor in this way is i think from talking to people around the league you know. I think it would have been other week. Besides thanksgiving patricia lost his job on after the after the carolina he may lose after this game. If they don't win. I mean i think that's how that's how tight it is. I'm not saying he's fired on friday. I'm not sick. Predicted sanders a lot of conversation about that. Yeah i mean that is obviously worried for the lines is as are they going to show up and play Away from texas. I saw cooks out Potentially i believe i still. Kenny stills has also out galled as probably going to be out for The lines it seems like jonah swift is going to be back who he played very very well the weekend before and the Houston texans are number thirty. Two in the league versus rush. That is my only reservation. Though for taking the texans talked about earlier like. Jj watt probably gonna wanna show up to sean lock. Primetime time game might be the last one you know. We'll fuller's ver- contract after the season potentially looking at shop and everybody's watching you know. Yep but look they had a big lead on you know a detroit out a big lead on on washington they left. Detroit is slow there to the worst two-minute defense at all football. According to the kid that they drafted the third overall pick played only twenty four plays last week. Why i don't know i think. The biggest indictment of matt patricia. Coaching staff is when adrian peterson comes out and says i don't know why he didn't meet three weeks ago. That kids me

Virus Cases Rise, but Hazard Pay for Retail Workers Doesn’t
"The back of our chat about Starbucks, raising their wages for baristas. The headline is Virus cases rise, but hazard pay for retail workers doesn't on. This specifically calls out Amazon and Wal Mart, both of which had boosted wages initially, but it's since pulled those raises back for saying, Look. Amazon, you reported, you know quarterly profits that were up 200% but are not paying your workers anymore. Since June. Wal Mart also had a big bump in quarterly sales in their most recent earnings quarter that they reported on Tuesday. They had paid some cash bonuses back earlier this year, but also has not done anything to raise wages here. And the question of this article is asking is, Is it fair for these companies to be raking in not record, but significant, significantly higher profits than earlier in this year will not paying their workers more given the safety risks there undertaken. I mean, I I'm not again to fairness. That's certainly legal. I think it's kind of shameful and embarrassing for the companies that they won't do this Home Depot actually did Home Depot announcing their most recently quarterly earnings that they're going to be making a number of their pay change that they did permanent and it's gonna result in a billion dollars in additional compensation every year. Um Yeah, way judging the morality of it. Clearly, Amazon doesn't feel like they need to hike them the pay rates in order to attract employees and prevent them from unionizing and continue to protest the low pay, But, uh, I I hope that they changed their mind, and I hope that shoppers like us draw attention to it. Um But you know WALMART Amazon plenty of other retailers lows, all saying that, you know they've stopped any of the hazard paper programs that they were doing back in March, March and April of this year. I don't currently have any new ones planned. So that's I guess problem over the last 50 years that we have effectively said Look, we're not going to judge this based on morality. We're just gonna judge this based on whether or not it's good for the company. I think it's hugely problematic and I'm glad to know why it was. Why don't we start by judging the morality then? Find this sucks. You guys are raking in $200 billion of extra profit. Give some back to your employees. Don't worry just about the shareholders and in particular, let's talk about worrying about the shareholders because I want to mention lows, and I'm gonna call those out here because you mentioned Home Depot for doing things the right way. Those said that they had paid out $800 million in pandemic related benefits to employees. At the same time, the company said that they were expecting to buy back about $3 billion of their own stock in the fourth quarter alone. So, basically Okay. And here's Here's where my big issue is. Lows, is saying that spending that $3 billion on stock buybacks to benefit shareholders, which again they're entitled to do Okay is obviously more important to them than spending more money, probably a fraction of that to actually provide sufficient protection. For their employees in terms of testing, PPE all those types of things I know they obviously do. You know, they provide those things they've said, Look, we spent $800 million on it. But when you look at it, there's a 4 to 1 ratio in spending that's going to shareholders compared to employees just for the most recent quarter. Isn't that the fundamental problem that a lot of people have with big business is that they feel that the little guy the person who's working is fundamentally disadvantaged compared to someone who has the capital to invest in that business to begin with. Yes, that is the problem, but I blame all of us for it. None of us have been willing to have, you know, hold their feet to the fire and say OK, Amazon, you're doing this to your employees. I'm canceling my Amazon subscription and no longer shopping at your store. Wal Mart. Same story for you. You guys, you know, make all of your stuff in China and outsource a bunch of jobs outside the U. S. And pay your employees garbage and get them on. You know, food stamps and government benefits. We all still shop at Walmart. So you know I Yes, I blame the employees and a little bit of corporate morality would go a long way. But I blame all of us, too, because we're also Old shopping there. We're all still buying the stock. We are absolutely and this is something where we're all guilty of this, And it's something that we all need to understand because you know, you mentioned the outsourcing of jobs that is, the is the opposite side of the exact same corner. When you look at you know the outsourcing of jobs to other countries for at significantly lower costs. It's saying, Look, this is good for the company. But now we've got thousands of people who have lost jobs simply because the company is saying, Hey, we're going to do this in order to help shareholders. I'm all about trying to innovate to make things you know better. Certainly, like when you talk about, you know, the pride that we have in American business. It's the idea of innovation and pushing the envelope and trying to come up with new ways to do news. Things through free enterprise is the idea. Hey, through competition and through going, you know, add it with other companies. You can figure out better ways to build a better mousetrap. Build a better car. Build a better whatever the heck you're building. Those the things that we want to encourage the things that we don't want to encourage, Okay? Is low saying, Hey, we're gonna spend $3 billion on buybacks because we don't have any way to spend that three billion toe actually innovate any better. We don't have a better way, You know, to stack lumber. So instead we're going to spend $3 Billion on stock buybacks. Hey, Wal Mart? Yeah, we're gonna outsource. You know a bunch of production to China, not because they have a better way of actually building anything but because they have a cheaper way because they have lower labor standards where we can pay people less. And that is the fundamental problem here is that we're not talking about These companies improving on things by saying, Hey, we've built a better mousetrap. We've built a better car. It's just financial engineering by being able to push dollars around in ways that benefit shareholders. That is. The fundamental problem is that we're not innovating the way that we need to were just engineering the financial results after the fact. I'm done. And by the way, this has always been the case. 978 Texan, You know, I wish businesses would go back to profit sharing. Yeah, you're right. You know that. This hasn't been the case since the beginning of the United States. We we used to have pension plans and profit sharing plans at major large businesses that have largely gone away at this point, so I'm good. Now I can get off my soapbox and Good. We'll get on my folks as we age, one of things

"texans" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Rap sheet on twitter in rappaport joins us here. The shot sows bray show. And was it true yesterday that the packers wanted a second round pick or wanted to. The texans wanted a second round pick for will fuller and that the price was just too high. This is an interesting. This was an interesting one because You know. I was spent a lot of time talking on tv about this yesterday and it was all very it was all out there. It's all very transparent so it sounds like houston. Texans won the to a second rounder for fuller. The packers originally offered a four. And i believe sweden deal by the end but they never got quite to the two that texans want it and it didn't even sound to mitch like what i thought was going to happen was the packers. Were going to call it the last minute and okay. We will do it for three and another pick. Will you do that. And that would've been a very interesting decision for the texans I'm just not sure. Gotcha that point. So there was a lot of interest in fuller He is a really good player. But at the end He stays put. And you know we'll probably continue to have a good season. Hopefully for the texans and then after the she's going into free agency. And i think the come very very rich anyway. So what. what's the compensation. Remember third round pick in free agency but in but in two years right right the not next. But it's still it. That's the compensation is my point is he is. He can be very very rich. Are the texans going to keep him. This offseason doesn't sound. We'll see who the coaches i think. That might have something to do with it but as of right now it doesn't sound like he's in the texans plans i mean he's probably gonna cost fifteen million dollars he electric but he also has been injured I think there's some trepidation inside the organization not paying receiver that much money especially one who has struggled to stay on the field. I'm not ruling anything out. I'm just saying it didn't sound like he's exactly in their plans It also might be a situation where they say you know what gets a free agency. See what your market is. Remember the cat's going to be down next year teams aren't going to be dying. Spend money so it might depress the market in general But i just don't think they're rushing paying fifteen million dollars next year when they can you know maybe allocate those resources in a little bit of a different or better way. Okay so he goes out on the open market. We literally talking for willful or who. We went down the list today and i..

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.

"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. No doubt Aaron dirty long you don't give give you input. Sure. He's your best player and he just signed for eight million. Eight billion dollars I get it..

"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.

"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.

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 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.
