"I'm like, look, guys, it's the team around him. It's not all Sam's fault, and now we're finally seeing how good Sam darnold can be. And what's interesting, like another crazy thought I have is that I think Sam actually in the last couple of weeks is even missed a couple opportunities where there's one play against Houston where you Dan Arnold running wide open down the seam, didn't see him open didn't throw in the ball. And then later he slightly overthrew DJ Moore on a deep ball. And then last week there was a play, I believe it's on third down where Christian McCaffrey is open in the Sam darnold didn't look at it long enough, it didn't wait until he came open, came off too early. It didn't see the guy open for a first down. Little things like that like Sam darnold is a young quarterback. And it might take on all that is that he's a new quarterback and a new system. It's okay to miss a couple of plays. And eventually, that excuse is gonna wear off as he gets older and more mature and we would expect to dak Prescott or Tom Brady or the best quarterbacks in the NFL to dak Prescott Dakota, any Dax great. When you're an established quarterback, you can not make those mistakes. However, again, even Aaron Rodgers makes a play occasionally where you're like, hey, that's a weird throw. I need to play on Monday Night Football where you had to touch down and he threw behind a guy on a slant. Like even Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady make mistakes and have bad plays occasionally. But I want to see Sam clean up some of those mistakes and play even better moving forward. Now, what stands out most when you watch the Carolina Panthers offense, though? Is just how many opportunities that Sam darnold has. He has people running open everywhere. It's unbelievable. Watching Carolina is a I just, the contrast between the jets and Carolina is unbelievable for Sam darnold. With the jets, I felt every game there was no one open, no opportunities now. He has so many opportunities you can't even make all of them. The play calling and Carolina is unbelievable and has to get a lot of credit. The Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Is actually I think somehow like we're already talking about him getting a head coaching job and even still he's not getting the respect he deserves. He's a wizard, the way he calls plays the way he creates matchups..

"Three, two, one. Oh, my goodness. Good morning, good afternoon. Whatever it is for you, I hope you're having a fantastic day. My name is Zach Sean Muller. There's a strong opinion sports episode 387 welcome in. I got a shorter episode today. I got sick during the middle of the week and it kind of really threw me off. So here we are. Let's start with this. During the opening game of NFL week three on Thursday Night Football, the Carolina Panthers beat the Houston Texans 24 to 29. And look, it was really not the best prime time game. We've had all year. It was fine. It was a decent football game. Houston lost their starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor last week to an injury. So they played rookie quarterback Davis mills. And honestly, all things considered shout out to Davis military played pretty well. Good solid rookie performance showed a lot of promise. I thought through a good ball and made some good decisions and what was really more impressive is he didn't make any big costly horrible decisions. Like he was a guy who didn't do anything to cost his team the game, which is very impressive for a rookie quarterback. And honestly, I want to see Davis mills play more football. They can be fun, it's fun to evaluate young guys like him. And I thought, honestly, he could be an NFL starting quarterback, like he really did a decent enough job to show some promise. Now we will talk about Sam darnold in just a moment. But first I got to say this because I love Carolina. And if I had to pick a favorite team, it would probably be the Carolina Panthers. And the reason it's not because I like the team, I like the people there. I really like their owner, David tepper. He's a dude who his approach is great. He cares, he wants to win. He lets football people make football decisions. He's also very happy to pour lots of money into the organization because he wants to win. I love the coach Matt rule. He's a guy who's very wise and has a great approach the way Keras for players and is very open to new ideas. Then you have the great offensive coordinator Joe Brady is a stud. He's really, really smart. Sam darnold's a good story. The people in Carolina to me, I find very, very compelling. And I love that the Carolina Panthers have going on. However, I know they're three and O, but it's a three and a where they played two rookie quarterbacks in three games. They played Zach Wilson week one and Davis mills week three. I mean, and they be jamis Winston in between..

Rep. Chip Roy Reacts to Biden Withholding Monoclonal Antibodies From Florida and Texas

"Is even more horrifying And we have the Montgomery County judge here in Texas, which is near Houston. Who posted on Facebook yesterday, the day before. I'm not sure if you saw it where he right. He wrote out the 2000 Texans that were benefiting from the treatment that they had put in place to have a clinic or set up there to run these mono monoclonal antibody treatment. And it was successful. And this is where the vaccinated and unvaccinated and then now you've got the Democratic leadership in Washington coming in and saying no, no, no. We're going to step in and interfere with the market and create a problem that didn't really exist. And I look, I wrote a letter to the HHS on Monday, lighting them on fire about this and raising this issue up the flagpole and then load the whole We get 24 hours later, they were gonna have a briefing on Friday. We had that briefing today, Mark And I asked twice. I got cut off. And then I got back in Q asking a second time. Hey, how many, Uh, doses do you currently have a supply? How many can be made per month and what's the demand? You tell me the numbers. You show me how there's some massive national shortage that you've got to interfere, and they would never answer the question. Literally, he said. Well, we'll just have to get back to you. The numbers to wait you're stepping in and rationing care. Rationing what Texas can get, and you can't even tell me what the numbers are its political. They started off of saying seven states have 70% of the demand on this stuff and get never mind in January. It'll be 10 different states Mark because we know how this virus works. And yet that's what they're doing. It's political. It's purposeful and people's lives at stake. And they're doing it because they don't want to talk about treatment. Not just this. But after cork wine back when that was more effective. Let me tell you something about, uh Hattrick chloroquine. I've been taking that for months. Have heart disease and asthma.

Houston Rockets, John Wall Working to Find Trade Deal

"Keith, let's start things off with John wall, a Houston rocket for now. But will not be a Houston rocket into the future. It sounds like he is going to be treatable. The rockets are hoping. They're hoping anyway. Let's get into that. What's going to happen here? The rockets, John wall working together to try to find a trade and he will not play any more games for Houston. Yeah, so this is that working together part is where it's very different from the 76ers and Ben Simmons who are not exactly working together. They're kind of working apart right now. So it sounds like by all accounts John wall has been very good in his time in Houston. He's been somebody that the younger players have really come to rely on for leadership. He's been a great leader for them. In the rockets are looking at insane. Look, we have a ton of guards that we want to play young guards to Kevin Porter junior, jaylen green, Josh Christopher, just adding in the last couple of years. Kyrie Thomas, who we picked up on a late season edition last year and he played quite well for them. So they want to play those guys. They don't necessarily want to play John wall, nor do they want to have John wall get hurt in kind of completely ruined maybe whatever little tiny modicum of trade value he may have left. There's no other way to slice this. It's 91.6 million. That he is owed. It's bad money. There's John wall would probably say at the same thing. Good for John wall for getting him what he did. And this is why you should never criticize a pointer for taking a max contract when it's offered to him. Team, other story we can have there. But at the time this contract was offered, wasn't necessarily as a bad contract. And either he's one of the first class of supermax guys to get it. So yeah, so what they're going to do is they're going to have them come to camp. He sounds like he's going to be there to kind of almost be like a glorified assistant coach.

"Good morning. Good morning good to be here. You held a public meeting about a week. And a half ago in kingwood to offer updates on a pair of flood mitigation projects and i thought maybe we could start there. Can you catch us up on. What's happening with efforts to dredge the santa river and and also plans to expand the the lake. Houston dam's spillway sure. That meeting was on thursday. July eight we had in kingwood and we went basically over four subjects The ongoing dredging operations that we have not only in the sanjay santo ever but in lake houston Where we are with the construction of additional gates onto the existing lake houston spillway dam and then we went through the north park expansion project where we're moving from four lanes to six lanes and also gave an update on some tributaries within the king area. That take all the water from montgomery county that we're receiving from the north of us and send it into lake houston and then eventually to the gulf of mexico so as far as a dredging is concerned. It's amazing that we spent over three hundred million dollars on dredging operations and that is removing the san through a lot of federal money and through some local matches that we receive from hurricane. Harvey my opinion. The most important project is as we look north. This has to be a systematic approach. Receive water from the same juice into river into lake houston and what hurt us on august. Twenty seven two thousand seventeen during harvey was our spillway dam. Didn't have the ability to proactively. Release water that was coming our way so at backed up and the only way spillway dam works is water goes on top of eventually falls and hits to the goal so with this dam project. We're going to build somewhere between eight and ten additional gates onto the existing lake houston spillway dam structure. That way we have the ability to move water. Rapidly for instance. Today we can only release one foot of water. Every twenty four hours with the new gates will be able to release minimum of four feet of water that every twenty four hour period so it gives us a little bit of an opportunity where we see rain coming and we don't anticipate about a rainfall to react In in move relatively quickly. What are you hearing from residents In response to the state of that project and the importance of it of course you hear a lot of negative and that is we need it today because we have three more hurricane seasons to get through including the one..

"We thought you dear podcast listener might enjoy hearing a few conversations this week some discussions that you might have missed from earlier this year. Today we offer up this chat from the before times back in february when i was in studio with author mark largish talking about his book vanished houston landmarks which focuses on like it sounds some locations keyed houston's history that and i know this is a shock we tour down. Enjoy the conversation tour companies around town. We'll take visitors to the bayou city too. Many of houston's major landmarks from the skyscrapers that dot the downtown skyline to some beloved local hangouts are stadiums museums and parks all the spots. That make up the houston. We know today but what about the landmarks that aren't there anymore. The astro worlds the gillies the shamrock hotels of houston's past well you can take a virtual tour of those locales of yesteryear through longtime he stony and author mark. Artists's book vanished. Houston landmark's marquee. Thank you we have been at times. A community of reinvention we build up. We knocked down. We build again. That doesn't mean though that there isn't a lot of history here right right. The the fascinating thing about houston is how much history has been made in houston and how quickly houston tends to tear down the places where they history was made in replaces it with something else that they feel will be more useful. Does that create an environment. Where we ourselves houstonians have a tendency to baby not recognize the history that we half. Oh yes people will drive by places that were significant both in the houston houston's history and world history and be completely ignorant of the fact that history was made there. Can you give an example of that. Well one example a couple of examples. One would be the randall's that boris yeltsin visited back in nine thousand nine hundred eighty nine when he was visiting the houston johnson space center and he had been completely unimpressed with his visit at the jc because he saw an empty Mission control room because we weren't flying a shuttle at that time and was given a tour of a mockup of a space station that we were going to build eventually when the soviets already had a manned space station in orbit for three years on his way out of houston though out of the space center. He impulsively stopped at an ordinary. Grocery store. randall's at the corner of highway three in l. dorado. Its food town these days. It is a food town today. The thing is this was an average grocery store typical. He went in it and discovered that it was cleaner better stocked and offered lower prices than the grocery stores that were available.

But how much has the pandemic impacted parents who home school their kids? We'll ask one also former vice president Joe, Biden and newly named running mate Senator Kamla Harris are preparing for their first joint appearance. This afternoon we'll discuss that and other developments in politics and will consider if there should be more of an effort to make Houston well, a little prettier I though we say. Good morning to news eighty seven Davis land here with some of what matters to Houston today cove nineteen and otherwise Good Morning Davis Good Morning. Craig. Gap Excuse me. Yeah. This morning we're seeing. A new set of measures out from the Texas Medical Center you know they've got this Hindi website chocked full of data on how covid nineteen is playing out in greater. Houston recently updated that with these three gauges they look like speedometers with a needle and a circle and they're color coded. So with these three gauges TMC hospitals are tracking the effective reproduction rate, the daily new case count and the positivity rate. I'll go through each of these one by one, the effective positivity rate that's the average number people infected by one person. It measures how effective things like mask wearing and social distancing have been if it's any higher than one, the spread. Of. The viruses accelerating if it's lower than one is slowing down yesterday, it was calculated to be zero point nine meaning the spread of the virus is slowing but only only slightly it's almost to that kind of just one to one rate The other two metrics are newly confirmed cases. That's the number of new cases, each day and the positivity rate. The rate of people testing positive for covid nineteen as far as new cases in the greater Houston area that was thirteen hundred cases yesterday in order for the virus to be under control the Medical Center says that needs to be less than two hundred cases a day. So we're a pretty long way off from that for the positivity rate, the Medical Center. was at ten point, five percent yesterday they say that needs to be below five percent before the virus is considered under control. So like we've been saying this week and last, there are some encouraging signs there but we are by no means out of the woods yet there's still a lot of progress to be made before the pandemic is brought under control here. Other news though we're learning that Hispanic owned businesses in Houston has been hit particularly hard by the economic effects of the pandemic the University of Houston Center.

Brandon is that or is it just a question of each level of governance if you will love school districts, cities, counties, states that whatever one you represent you think should be the one to make decisions about things like this. It a little of I think Nancy's right that this is certainly political because the circumstances have developed that way and I think initially could have been quelled.

It's really impossible to Texas in the middle of this pandemic that requires there to be coordination among multiple levels of government and one of the things we try to.
