"Must come to an end. And unfortunately that is what happened on Sunday for your Houston. Texans and in turn our show. Texans. Replay welcome in everybody. I'm your host John Harris football analysts and saw reporter for your Houston Texans and the host of Texas replay. And we've had a great run of Texas replay shows recapping tremendous wins all the way through from the overtime win against Indianapolis from an unforgettable night against the Dallas Cowboys to in-incredibly scary game against buffalo. That was saved by Jonathan Joseph to a dominating performance in Jacksonville. Equally dominating performance against the Miami Dolphins. Then the Denver Broncos by this just the the hair and UTD chin Chen to a scintillating win in Washington. To Monday night dominating on forgettable night. Celebrating the life of Bob McNair and a win over the Tennessee titans to beating Baker Mayfield up in the first half. What a run it was nine wins in a row came to Sunday twenty four twenty one to the Indianapolis Colts. And I think there are a few things to take out of that game. And. Think is the Texans. Just we didn't play well in that game. Kind of the way that we played the first three games. And yet they're down by three with an opportunity in the fourth quarter. Didn't get to stop in the fourth quarter made some mistakes throughout the game not turnover mistakes, but just stakes and didn't play clean game. And Indianapolis played very very well came in new there football lives for twenty eighteen were on the line because they lose that one six and seven chances are getting the playoffs are very slim now seventy six there very much alive considering other seven and six teams that are alive with them. The ravens the dolphins who colts beat the titans. The colts beat. So the colts are right probably where they need to be at this point. But they needed to have that win, and they came in and played with a sense urgency and not said, Texas didn't but just colts day. But on the show, we take a look back. So we always take a look back at the. The game that we just completed and we're going to do that. We're also gonna take a look back at the streak itself. And because we do look back. That's what we're gonna do. We're gonna look back at the streak for a segment, and then we're going to go back to and rewind to the day that deandre Hopkins blew up redesigned, we'll talk about that later, but we gotta start with. We always do our ultimate eleven plays of the most previous game and that being the Annapolis colts. Now, we gotta jump right in. We're not going to not going to belabor. I guess too much on this. Well with wins. We would stretch out a little bit. Celebrate the things that happened but not going to do that as much with the loss. So we're gonna jump right in at number eleven and number eleven is a guy that I think is continued to play very very well the last probably three four weeks maybe more Christian Covington he has really turned his game up a notch and Andrew luck out in a really nice groove. Unfortunately. Early in this game and about mid second quarter. I should say early because the first quarter and half was a struggle. But by the middle second quarter. That's when it really kinda clicked and then the Texans started getting some heat on him in late third quarter. And then he didn't do anything for the fourth quarter. And part of that getting heat on him was Christian Covington cov- came up with this sack on Andrew luck is Cup starts to pile up some numbers playing very very well. Especially on pass rush downs. Here's Christy Covington number with the second. Andrew luck. Third of.

"Um, very thoughtful, very spiritually. Very impressive in so many ways. But could you be where you are today? If you remained as the executive vice president and general manager, the Texas I think the short answer to that is no, Adam, because I'm a functioning a product of all of my experiences. Right? So I'm walking in this thing called my life, and I'm learning and growing each day, and so every experience that happens to me is one that that is Um, motive me and shaking me and and so tip his death was something that motive me and changed me. Right? Um, being with the Houston Texans for 13 years at that motivated shaped me, you know? The time I spent with Bob McNair shaped me and mold me. You know it the way that I looked at a lot of things in the world, you know, so no, I would not be what I am who I am, where I am right now, without everything that's happened in my life. Mm. I want to talk about the football aspect of this. There's so much deep and meaningful information with what you shared their but while you were with the Texans You are draft record was rather stellar. You drafted amongst others, Dwayne Brown, JJ Watt. DeAndre Hopkins Jadeveon Clowney to Shawn Watson. Do you remember about the day trading up for the Shawn Watson to make him your quarterback of the future going from? I think you're a 27 and went to 10 is my memory correct there, Rick? Yeah, Yeah, Close man. It's you know, it's so. So what I remember most about that is that that probably and that's a great said Wait. Question From what? We just talked about Adam because it was the It was, in my opinion, the culmination of my entire time in general manager and what I mean by that is this I am a I believe in process. Right? So I put a process You mentioned all those players. That was really great players that we had a first round draft pacing and we and I think if you look at the the, you know, the entirety of our draft, I had some really good people working with me and we had a good system. We had a good process. And when you have a good process, and you have the people who are operating in that system and process, you give yourself a chance to be successful. I always say that make sure that it all we're trying to do is we're trying to give ourselves a chance to make good decisions on draft day. And if we stay consistent with what these principles are in this process, and we will. We will please do that. We'll give ourselves a chance. And we and we had some success. And then we had some failures. Obviously into Mrs like we like, you know, all of us do, but I do. I am proud of our record proud of the men that we drafted in the team that we put together, but that particular draft so so in that whole idea as the way that I run a draft room, I believe in and consensus building so I never believe in giving coaches Players that they don't believe in all that they don't want. I think we all have to be vested in the decision to add it clear to the football team. I think everybody has to have a voice. And I think when you give people that opportunity, and you give them that voice, and so and then you move and you make decisions based on that. Everybody has to have buying because everybody has had their input to the decision. And so throughout the course of my tenure is GM. I did that. I operated that way. Wait, sweet set the board. We value the vote of the board that way with respect to the way that scouts and coaches saw players and we came to consensus about what that looked like and what that value was, and that's how we drafted and so I think there were there were. There were very few picks in my tenure as GM that they were not exactly where they were valued on the board, and everybody agreed. This particular one was a little different, because, um, I knew that I could sit where we were and get that Sean and I had gone to watch him play multiple times. And I was convinced that he could be you know the franchise quarterback that we needed and so actually spent the day On the phone trying to move up and I couldn't get a deal done. But right before I went down to the draft room, I made a call that shit Jackie Brown in Cleveland, and you know what? I told him. I said, Hey. Um you know, my guys there. I'm gonna come. I'm gonna come up and you know, we talked about compensation, and we agreed What? Itwas wasn't hard. It was just the math work because it was next year's one and so In the draft room when we started, you know, getting close to the pick that I was trying to get to. I pulled the room and I asked, you know who would move up and give up created a scenario and I couldn't get anybody to bite so nobody would do it. And sure enough, you know, Soon thereafter and he comes up to get Patrick Mahoney. And so after that happened, I'd stood up again. I said, Hey, guys, I'm telling you if you got one that you believe can be your guy. You have to go get it. So then I put the scenario out there about the deal that I had on the table. You know, Nobody knows. I've got the deal on the table. But I said Hey, So who would go up Tonto here to give Get him in, and nobody would. I couldn't get any support. And so I sat down and I leaned over to build build. LeBron sits beside me or step aside in the draft, and I said to him, I said, Bill, I really believe in this kid. I said All right, this is what I'm gonna do..

"Studio. So glad to be with you, especially on this show because we're always looking back where we look back at wins. It's that much more special especially on a night when the Texans organization from top to bottom paid homage to the man that founded this organization, Bob McNair, man, what an amazing night, and I don't use the word amazing loosely mazing grace before the game and a tribute to Bob McNair was just unbelievable. My guys Gavin Gert, Kenny. Tom. They all did a great job with the videos in everything on the video board. And it was just such a special special night. It was it was weird in a sense that I could look at the board thinking, I can't believe the big man's gone. I can't believe you know, it was just kind of just still trying to take it all in even though he'd have been able to come to games and be around much this year. It just knowing that he wasn't going to be here anymore was just such a tough a tough thing over the weekend. But everybody in this organization. Tip their cap, in some way, shape or form to Mr. McNair. I mean, it was just unbelievable Monday night and Monday night was just really in all honesty, Monday night was just the decapa and everything. When the when the news came down Friday the way that people in this organization pitched, in some way, shape or form to come up with a plan. How do we how do we feed this, man? How do we give him the proper do? What would he have wanted? I mean, it was just amazing to see people come together. And I'll tell you a little peek behind the curtain on Friday. I got my show all ready to go. I got it all recorded. Everything was ready to go. I got an lasted report and to our show. So putting together a two hour show recording whole thing is is lengthy. I got that showdown. I walked out of the studio, and it was at that moment that I found out that Bob had passed and I knew immediately. I was like, well, we can't run the show we're going we're going live and Martin van Buren. And I came in here for two hours did show. So I've got a show from Friday that will never be aired. And it was all about the titans and getting ready for the titans and all that. And then we did a show that hopefully memorial memorialized him in the proper way at least on radio, but it was throughout the weekend. The articles people wrote the videos people did what community did what PR did? I mean what Amy and Omar and Nathan. An alley. I mean what they all. Did was just incredible. I mean Jonah Stephanie. I mean, they just did such a great job with everything that went on. It was just an incredible incredible evening and on the fortune one because I get to talk about that on the radio because I'm on the radio. You can't see any tears streaming down my face, which is great because I'm sure at some point and all of those discussions, whether it's Friday or Monday or Monday night, whether it was on the air in any way, shape or form, or now just making me think about how everybody came together, which is exactly what Bob McNair wanted. That's exactly what he set out to have here for as an organization was based on family, a work family, faith, flam three. And of course football. And it's the football that we talk about here on the radio, but we wouldn't have done it without Bob McNair. And whether he was the driving force on Monday. I know he was the driving force on Monday, especially when it got to be tend to nothing. He definitely was the driving force for a team looking for eight in a row and in all honesty. I don't think the team looks at that way. The team looks at it has let's be wanted. Oh this week. We'll take care of this sixty minute adventure in front of us and get this thing done, and they certainly did that on Monday night. Against the Tennessee titans. So I noticed to start off your home, you know, stasis might to that replay as on Wednesday. We'll be back on Tuesday for the remainder of the year for as long as the Texans play. And hopefully, I'm doing replay all the way at the February. That would be unbelievable. And I don't I should say unbelievable. It would be fantastic. But the way his team is playing anything. Nothing would shock me at this point nothing, especially the NFL's been this year. You lost three right off the bat. Then you went eight not in NFL history has ever done that ever ever done that in history. I mean, it's just amazing to think about amazing to about this team has done. Now, they can find that consisted stride going forward. They're going to be a tough out from here until February. They're going to be a really really tough out for anybody. But we'll get to that down the road. That's looking ahead. We always look back on replay. And we're going to do that tonight. Looking back at the place of the win over the Tennessee titans. And also back last year's win over the Cleveland Browns. Another statement made as a rookie last year for the Shawn Watson and we'll go through that game. And look back at it later. We got to get through our ultimate eleven plays of the game now, and we're going to start with a guy that I think has unfortunately because the sack numbers aren't higher and the glorified stat numbers aren't higher. I think it's lost. What a good year Whitney mercilus has had came back off the injury last year. And he's been asked to a lot of different things for this organization a ton on and off the field. But all the funeral particular. He's been asked to play as a four three outside linebacker. He's been asked to play as a four three and he's been asked to play three frauds linebacker. He's been asked to play its elaborate. He's been asked to play. All over the field because that's what we can do. We can do all those things. We'll thankfully on Monday night. He was able to get to quarterback gets a team that he has done that against. I remember twenty fifteen list team was two and five and looked like this team was just headed nowhere play the Tennessee titans at home last week before by and whit went nuts. He should had five sacks net game, but they took one away because of a face mask. And I think it'd being fours what he ended up with. It was just outstanding afternoon. We ended up with four on Monday night, but he ended up with one and a half and because of live radio sometimes he got credit for two. So a number eleven we give you both as I put an air quotes both sacks for Whitney mercilus on Monday evening. Here's the first one. I doubt the Texans forty nine. Here's Mario to.
