They should probably posted on Twitter as well.
That would be smart.
Him those Baltimore Ravens, man.
Oh, it's gonna happen.
You made me cry in 2012 in 2012? Yeah, when we play John the division around it was T J a starting. Okay.
And that was, like, the first year, like, really, really got in the football hard core.
And I wasn't, man, you know, I don't care.
You got Ray Lewis I don't carry.
I got Ed Reed and then we opening kick up.
Jacoby Jones drops it. Emily off.
Okay, say with Simpson, don't put your fingers in your mouth.
So what's up, guys? I got my son with me.
As you can see, we have an extra.
Not only do we have one special guest, but we have another special guest. It's my son.
This is little Joe.
I think I don't know how it gets a new vita man going.
Thank you. Chris.
Uh, when he was a left.
So today I want to welcome you all to the n f podcast live.
Um, as always, we got my guys sunny with me.
We got my guy Rubin from the 713 Houston sportscast.
And the reason we're bringing my guy Rubin on is because just like last week, guys, we previewed the Browns and Ravens game in week one.
And that was a pretty good stream, I think.
I thought it went well.
So we'll see how this one goes.
We're bringing on Reuben because he is a Texans fan.
If you couldn't tell by his shirt, you want todo so the day I die, unfortunately, I mean, you know, So you wanna get down, okay? All right.
Um, all right, let's So let me let me let me try to get in the right mindset.
Obviously, it's it's Sunday.
I'm not We're not used to doing this on Sundays.
Guys, we did this because I wanted to make sure I could get Reuben on because he's like, man, I worked like five jobs I would on Wednesday, so I'm like I asked and then I know the grind.
So I want to make sure I could have a month.
Okay, so if you guys don't know, this is the way it works.
Let me lay this out for you.
So this is a live episode of what we call the edge.
And basically we are determining who has the edge in certain categories.
So we're going to go offense versus offense.
Ravens offense In this case versus Texans offense.
Who has the better offense? We're going to debate that.
Who has the better defense? We're going to debate that.
Who has the better special teams.
I'll build you a little bit.
Who has the better coaching, all of that.
We're going to get into that.
We're going to dive deep into that, and we're gonna make sure Ruben brings the heat.
That's why I brought him here, man.
He's gonna bring that heat.
But before we get into that guy's, please make sure if you're watching this on YouTube because this is gonna be up on YouTube.
But we're just doing this on Sunday.
We're doing things a little differently this time.
Please make sure you subscribe to the 713 Houston sportscast, right? That's what it's called her.
Hell, make sure to link it down in the description.
And, of course, my guy Sonny from SDG Sports.
You guys already know Subscribe to my guy. Please.
Now why don't we get into this man? Ravens versus Texans Who has the edge? Now let's think about the, you know, the Texans air just coming off a tough game against the Kansas City Chiefs on.
And now they have to face against the Baltimore Ravens.
Arguably, they have to face up to of the top A f C teams.
Maybe the two top A f C teams in back to back weeks.
So before we get into the categories, Rubin, why don't you start a soft man? How do you feel about this game and that early in the season? Well, first of all, I just want to, you know, thank you guys for having me on.
You know, I really respect what you guys do, you know? And second of all, this offense is strange, because if this was the old Houston Texans, I was said, Well, you know what will build Brian? He's gonna run on first down, he's gonna run on second down, and he's gonna pray to God that Watson pull some miracle out of himself and converts it, but It's totally different.
He trades away DeAndre Hopkins, and that is a whole another story in itself, you know? And then it's like the shoes and Texas have changed their offense.
We're now going Mawr off like a Kansas City chief is a speed offense.
We trade for Branden cooks.
We have will folder.
If he's healthy, we know what four is.
One of the most like the best deep you know D Y receivers in the NFL veteran Kinney Stairs, who we got that limits on so trade, along with Randall Cobb, who we definitely overpaid for.
But, you know, bringing that leadership, he's second year in the slot.
This offenses is completely different, and I don't know what to like.
Really explain, because we haven't seen this before.
You know, we're used to seeing the Houston Texans just ground impound, and maybe we will with David Johnson.
But it seems like the Houston Texans are going with speed, and it is something that I think a lot of people are excited excited about.
I'm excited to see it, you know, because not only is Bill Bill Brian the head coach, he's also the GM.
He's **** it. He's **** near the owner.
You know of the huge getting there.
That's what it is that that was the next step, you know? Yeah.
So here I am thinking, Oh, they might fire Bill O'Brien.
Oh, no. Let's make him the GM.
Let's given part ownership as well.
You know, it is shocking because I haven't seen this before ever, you know, watching any type of sports.
But you're going back to this offense.
His offense is gonna, you know, give a lot of people trouble in the beginning and till it gets figured out, you know? And that's why I think, you know, first couple weeks will be OK.
Um, you know, we do have very good sightings there in Fells led Titans in Red Zone Church ounce this season.
So we know get into the red zone isn't a problem on the running backs are a bit of a question because David Johnson literally didn't do squat in Arizona last year.
And Kenyan Drake took over his job and just absolutely just bought out, you know? But the different thing about that is, you know, when we traded for ah, um David Johnson, he was on.
He was on Texans Unfiltered podcast there.
And he really talked about how, like, how he how he felt, like wanted by Bill Bryant.
And you know that said that he's going to get motivated to do so.
You know? Also do Johnson, as we know, is one of the best receiving running backs in the NFL.
I regret it could run routes.
Ah, funny thing, If David Johnson was a receiver for the Houston Texans, he will be the tallest wide receiver.
And then, you know, the last talk about Oh, I'm sorry.
No, I was just saying, Oh, yeah, And then the last I'm talking about is the offensive line.
Who? A bunch of people, you know, I started Houston.
Think that the Houston Sections offense line is trash and yes, yes, Watson did was the most SAT quarterback, but But the Houston Texans often line was top 10 in past win.
You know, in the past, and we had a top 10 in a Russian attack, I think a lot of it.
The *** came from DeShaun Watson holding the ball too much.
DeShaun Watson just staring at DeAndre Hopkins and scheme.
You know, I really feel like if this all gets better in the Houston *** and will be very good and ah, another thing that's different is Bill.
Brian is not calling the plays anymore, you know? It is Tim Kelly.
He was our tight ends coach, and and one thing he did that was good without the Imex excited about that.
He goes to them, right? He goes to all the skill position and say, What do you want to run? And then, you know, we saw that with the Jets.
When when When Adam gays winter Sam Dart and say, Hey, look, what do you want to run? And then Sam Donna went off in fantasy for, like, a couple weeks, you know? And then, you know, and the Texas air not done.
But on the roster yet, you know, I'm not sure if you saw, but two days ago we were in talks with a be when I really in talks.
But it was like rumored that the Houston, Texas were trying to get a B, you know, from some of the people that I talked to, they say that it's a possibility, and if we get a B, then that's going to be absolutely nuts.
But then, But then the whole narrative is well, you trade away.
DeAndre Hopkins, who has never had a problem, never been suspended.
But then you bring in one of the most controversial players of the past, you know, five teen years.
Yep, that's a good point.
So, man Sonny, I know you have a lot to say.
I could definitely read that on your face.
So please go ahead, man.
You're gonna keep it on, He says.
Often is right, because that's that's everywhere and talk about the most.
So you talk about that you think are your office could be better.
I argue that the office is this probably worst.
You basically one of the top five receivers and Milly I guy that not only told her, held hands a guy that Ravens fans can probably remember when we had income.
Yeah, an income bowling wasn't asked.
I mean, I love in Kabul, and he wasn't as good as D hop, and you replace it with a bunch of smaller receivers that thrive in the the threat.
Therefore, that to happen, Watson has to do what hold the ball longer so those long routes develop and it's not like he can be OK.
This guy is talking is gonna do a 50 50 ball because Brendan Kit is not gonna be that toll can.
He still doesn't drive on that.
Look, Brendan Cook.
Now I'm gonna go away with specific when we play them.
Last year, he had a whopping two caches, 32 yards.
Still less here.
He didn't have a great year. Finally, 61.
New York's right.
Well, Fuller is a good receiver.
My problem Will Fuller is, too.
He can say healthy.
But last year he played 11 games.
So you would think, OK, so he probably broke 900 yards because, as he's a big splash, 6 70 again, another guy that thrives more in the Give me wide open the threat guy.
That's what Brendan Cooke lives.
That's what Kenny still live.
That's a well, fuller lift.
And for all three things you need, what time, and that's what Watson has to hold the ball and the running game.
I hear what you say about um Johnson.
The reality is he used to be good, and he says that he's motivated now I don't know.
My last year, Arizona.
The Cardinals had offense to be motivated, right? He didn't think the necessary we're gonna win.
But it was a fun office.
And I just think the injuries given thought have a toll on him right now, and he hasn't been able to just push healthy.
He probably plays constrained.
Scare a little bit of that big hand. Other injury.
I was shocked when the U.
Took that big salary from do Jonathan Johnson from David David Johnson.
Thank you. Got David and Duke Johnson.
So you got double double duty on.
We were shocked because, you know, when we heard that we got Johnson, we were excited at first, right? Because, hey, you know, we're going to get it David Johnson, and they're gonna probably give us an extra pick, you know, to to take on his contract.
That's what we all expected.
And then we found that it was DeAndre Hopkins were like, What the hell was going on? And I was at work shock.
My boss had to write me up.
He was like, Hey, you got to get back into work.
But you know what you're saying is true.
But all that offenses under the Bill Brian offense and one thing that's horrible about Bill O Brien is he's not consistent.
The Houston Texans last year were being or consistent and being un inconsistent.
They would win two games, lose a game, win two games, losing game.
The offense will sputter.
The offense will look amazing against the Patriots, a team that has basically been our daddy's for the past 10 years.
We finally beat them, put him 25 plus for its points.
I'm sorry Watson look like he was like he was like, he like an M V P quarterback that game.
Then you follow it up the next week against the Denver Broncos and you get smacked.
It started in nothing at halftime and that whole.
Now we're talking.
It was shocking, and it's always been like that under Bill Brian.
You know, we've had this man for six years, so we know how he is.
So maybe I'm putting too much faith in Tim Kelly.
You know, you know somebody who has been with Bill O Brien since you know his days at Georgia Tech in college, But this is the way I see and not sure this is the same for you guys.
Right When you see in something and you know that it could be done better, you know, it could be improved, you know? And then you're praying that man, if I ever get the reins of this, I want to do it my way and do it the way it should.
That's what I'm thinking about with Tim Kelly.
The hopefully he sees artists.
He sees that Watson should be put it on.
More numbers are why we see what you're putting up more numbers.
I think he's going to really try and just make this a very good offense.
Now, nothing is gonna be top five top, you know, But somewhere in the top tens, my point issue don't have the running bags.
Ah, you have running backs for for short passes around, you know, check downs those.
And that will help Watson somewhat.
But the other thing is, think about if you guys start struggling in the beginning because there's a new offense.
We didn't really have an off season or the off season's gonna be were.
I think the players just voted to have no preseason games, so it's definitely gonna be different.
So let's say it takes some time, their struggles.
You think Hillary is going to sit down? Him being Officer Kocian saying, like, you know, he's gonna interview right? If you had a defensive coach, then those you should you swallow their prey like, Well, I don't call the office that game, so just go.
But Bill Ryan's maybe like, do you not getting it done? Move along.
I'm gonna go back, toe me the clay. Call it.
What do you What do you think it would take for Bill O Brien to get out of here? Do you think that's even a possibility at this point? Okay, hold on. Gotta suck.
Gave an angry man.
So, you know, going back to this thing that's my one concern about Bill O Brien is if this offense falls off right, I know he's gonna take over.
That's you know, that's the one thing that that we're takes offence are scared off because he said that he wants to delegate his power, but we know he's a control freak.
We know that, and that is one of my fears.
As you know as a fan that if Tim Kelly slow it, if the offense isn't doing good, then Bill Brian's gonna take it over.
You know, I've heard from people like like Patrick Storm was, like, very connected.
Used Texans that it's gonna take a lot for you, you know, for Bill Brian to take it back.
But then again, we don't know as far as what would it take for Bill Brian to get fired? Dude, we've had people say that even if we have a horrible year, he won't get fired.
And my question is, and that's what I would be afraid of.
Yeah, my question is, why? Here's the thing that really I'm sorry, I'm going around it.
This is the thing that really, like paces me off about about the Houston Texans fan base is that they're so used to just making the playoffs there.
So use so you know, toe winning the A F.
C South Division that they feel like that if somebody comes in and they get worse than it's going to all fall apart, my whole thing is that why are you guys scared? Change needs to happen.
We were with seven years with Gary Kubiak.
We're now six years will build Bryant and the team hasn't got any better.
We have more talent, and yet we cannot make it past the division around.
It feels me, Bill Brian should have been gone two years ago.
Yeah, you know, against Kansas City Chiefs, 30 to nothing.
I was at that game, man.
When now Davis took it back.
And, you know, he's quote unquote the you know, you know, like the offensive guru.
You know, we don't see that.
And I know you know, I'm supposed to be hyping up my team, and I will.
But it's frustrating because Ishii appreciating them because that's how we try to be, too.
You know, we try to be truthful and just say the truth about what we think about the team.
So feel free men.
That's that's part of why I brought you on here because I want you to.
And it's and it's frustrated because we see teams who were good then were horrible.
And now we're good again.
But, you know, I'm just preying on that.
He lets Tim Kelly, you know, really control this offense, and if he does.
And you know I have high hopes.
Also have hopes.
Under Sean Watson, I've, you know, I've put money down under Sean Watson to be the M V.
His odds are 28 to 1.
I think that's, you know, pretty good odds, but I trust into Sean Watson, man, you know, I think he's gonna take the next step.
You're shaking your head, and I got faith in like, you beat you guys Don't know how how you know how horrible was before the Shawn Watts.
You're Q b. I don't have faith in your team.
Yeah, I mean, because I don't think the team is any better than last year.
You think so? No, no, no.
I mean, let's finish into the office.
And then we could talk about the defense, which it took a step.
Biggest step backwards.
But I think the Ravens right now on offense, we have very, very few, if any, holes.
Ah, last year we were really good and we were top of one of the top office in the league and we added a rookie stick can just pap, too, that the Onley step back there to croon last year to this year, so right car and we took ticket Fluker Magarri as good as Janda.
But the hope is he can be service.
Or in that everybody else on the offense came back, if anything upgraded with the, uh, J.
Dobbins and, um, Duvernay in Appreciate. Right.
So our office said again, we your year that practices, who knows how they're gonna be convicted.
So continuity this year is better than new stuff because that and the big piece that I'm expecting to be impactful will be J.
Their running backs.
Usually it's easier for them to similarly, because you're not talking about right running or none of that and in our case is a read on and then you follow the lying.
So our offense is in a way, better position, then Texas officer that they are just trying to implement any system plus have pieces.
The, in my opinion, are worse than the pieces that they let go on offense.
Yeah, I mean, it's just because you guys draft amazing.
You know, every year I you know, I tell people I'm like, Why do you know why don't we get somebody from the bottom or, you know, you know, it's tree.
K. Dobbins. I was hurt, man.
That was my boy.
I was like, Ah, you got to another Ohio State guys.
I don't like God.
There's so many of you guys all of a sudden.
I don't know what happened.
I've been meeting a lot of Ohio State fence, man.
You know, I think through the Ohio Valley.
And that's the one thing you know me as a football fan is like, even though I'm biased towards my team, I want to give other teams, you know, their due diligence, their credit.
You guys are phenomenal drafting.
Thank you, No, but, um, for me, the key for the Houston sections is is the is the offensive line and, you know, for me, I think the offensive line is like it is just like the way you build a house. It's tough foundation.
And then when you have learned a ton, so who really didn't really have a full training camp with the Houston, Texas? He came a week before Week one.
When you have Max Sharpen, who was a surprise and rookie, you know, one of the best left guards for Ricky.
And then you have Nick Martin, who had a under underrated season.
I know a lot of people didn't like the contract that we gave him.
You know, the right guard is a question, you know, Zack Force and I did have my doubts on him.
But the thing about that is like the guy next to him, Titus Howard was hurt.
And you know, when you're playing in, you know, when you're playing alongside with lesser people than you tend to fall off as well.
But you know, Titus Howard, our first on pig played absolutely phenomenal.
I myself wanted Andre Dillard.
I'm not going to sit up here and say I want to tie this hour.
You know, I wanted on drug Dealer.
I was mad when the Eagles jumped up to get him.
But I love the way tightest Howard play.
That he was absolutely phenomenal.
So I think the only problem with Howard Waas he wasn't a left tackle.
Right? And you need a left tackle.
So you ended up spending two first round, got one gate council, and then a freaking bill, I'm ****ed.
A bill Brian Forgiving Tunsil that contract, man.
We had Stanley on the books, and now we have to pay him out of this world because of what Bill O Brien did with Tunsil.
Well, you were like, you know, like tonsil.
Like he, like, did his own contract, right? Like he was in.
He negotiate his own country.
He didn't have an agent, you know, And and then he got a short your deal, and Sean Watson got he asked for a short your deal, and I love that.
He asked for a three year deal, you know, because it puts pressure on the Houston Texans to stay relevant because we've seen when teams give quarterbacks big money that seem to fall off, you know, how many times have we seen the Packers? I make the playoffs The same stuff falcons, you know, going on.
But going back to the offensive on this is the one group that I am actually excited about.
You know, a lot of people don't really pay attention to me, but I think we got some dogs.
They're, you know, a bunch of young guys who could just step up and then you have limits on who had a horrible for star problem.
How, like 12 13 4 stars.
And if you really paid since this false starts, he was just quick, man.
And of course, that's why he got the ball starts.
But, you know, Tony, give up two sacks and then in two of those he gave up three.
But two of those *** was in the first game, you know, against the Saints.
You know, it gave us a lot of whole man, cause we were because we were just used to seeing to Sean wasn't just get pummeled to the ground.
And, you know, we don't want another and situation.
Noble Yemen for the Texans offense.
I love to Sean Watson.
He's one of my favorite quarterbacks in the league right now.
Um, I definitely think he's top five for me.
Um, I love to Sean Watson.
He's a beast, of course, you know, like with every young quarterback, he does have his issues that obviously I but that got that Dukan ball man.
He has that questioning him.
That which I love their confidence money.
If I could say it, I'm sorry. Good.
And his rookie season.
He was playing against the Kansas City Chiefs, and we were down and we were leaving to come back.
And he throws a 50 yard bomb toe afforded for the touchdown.
Actually started crying.
You know, I dropped to my knees and started crying.
My dad's like, What is wrong with you? Do you know how hard has been to be a fan without a quarterback? You know, the Sean Watson is special, man.
Um, I don't know how he was 1/3 quarterback taken, you know, of course, Patch Mahomes is probably the best quarterback in the league.
You know, Miss, if your trip is he there? He's a bum.
But, ah, DeShaun Watson is amazing, man.
Is he? He he does things that make you say wow.
You know, he got kicked in the eye and here and, like he said it himself.
Like I thought I lost my eye and still found Derrick Rose for the touchdown was crazy.
He he has that gene in him like that.
Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson style.
That Russell Wilson That I'm going to make a play.
I need to win this game.
He has that in him. I've seen it multiple times.
I think Carson Wentz also has it in him.
Obviously, once has the whole injury things, but we don't have to get into that.
But aside from that, like you said, the offensive line is a little improved, which I think has been a big issue for the Texan skills forever, right? I think the average had a seizure because he got sacked in under two seconds.
It was it was nuts.
And that's when we were like, Well, we gotta fix this year because we put Watson behind this, then that's gonna be let's scare.
So I actually, I'm curious what you have to say that you are a Texan.
Spend You obviously watched every snap, I assume, just like we watch every Raven snap.
Um, do you think that it's a real argument to be made that since DeAndre Hopkins is no longer on the offense, it could actually open things up? Because I've heard people make this argument and I disagree because they say that the Sean Watson would force the ball to DeAndre Hopkins, and I'm like, maybe sometimes, but DeAndre Hopkins is, in my opinion, the best receiver in the league.
So it's like, Yeah, I don't know.
That's just I think it's a dumb argument, but I want to hear what you have to have to say about that.
So I'm a little going towards that dumb argument.
You know, just because that's the only thing I could hope on, you know, because we did see that he did force the bottle. DeAndre Hopkins.
We did see that.
Look, you know, you know, just look DeAndre Hopkins way when other people were were wide open, You know, against that game against the cancer achieves in the division around, people were wide open.
He was just staring at DeAndre Hopper and and of course, you know, like you're trying to come back, you know, you you want to go to the best wide receiver in the game.
But we felt like because he's not there, it's going to force them to be better.
It's gonna force them to go to other people.
You know, the stills that cooks the tight ends, their running backs that we have.
You know, that's the one consensus you know that we in Houston have is that he is now gonna You know, be better and look for other players as well.
Not by, you know, not just DeAndre Hopkins.
And do I agree with that? I mean, no.
But that's the only thing that we have to pray on because we could.
This is the first time in Houston Texans history that we do not have a number one wide receiver.
We had Andre Johnson for 12 years.
Now we have DeAndre Hopkins, and this is the first time we do not have a number one.
Yeah, that's why we're so, uh, that's why you know that that's what we want A be so bad to get another one wide receiver.
But you know that the only thing that we have right now so we we have pretty much never had a number one receiver.
So I feel your pain, but you're gonna feel our pain very soon.
But, Sonny, what do you think about that argument, man? No, the 100 up.
I mean, for me, if let's say we had the on your heart comes in Baltimore, and Lamar would have been my force feeding him what I be like, okay.
They need to trade him now I'll be like they need to bring some complimentary pieces.
It can excel with him.
All right, Maybe a better tightening.
Maybe Brandon cooks receiver, right? Or, um, yeah, because Hawking has become more like underneath.
He can hit the home run, but more position type of a very early age.
But Hughes, he has become more the possession to ever receive a 50 50.
Ah, Cook will be good for him.
I think still has lost a step.
This is why he was against effective last year versus Will Fuller when he was there.
Um, if, well Fuller would have been healthy.
Then all you need is to bring an extra receiver, and then you have a really good compliment.
Ah, so I don't think the answer should have been essentially trade in beyond your Hawkins were random Cook.
I think it's still Brendan.
Seaver has been lucky in the league.
People have been paying our offer.
Him right? Don't pass first from picks up.
Um and I think he's a good receiver.
Don't get me wrong.
I think he's a solid number two, but right now, in the Texas system.
He's probably gonna yes, to be a number one.
So for us, we think that we don't see a number one y receivers.
We see this as a pick your poison offense where if you focus too much, you know, on on one y receiver, another one's gonna be open.
If you're going to try to stop the deep ball, they're not running back to just gonna eat you up.
You know, we This is the first time that shoes and take since I've had a slot in a very, very long time.
What Randall cop, you know, So we don't really see ourselves as having a number one.
We see it says, having just so pick your poison top about Yeah, it's not a bad receiving corps.
I think it's zillion hours.
It's just And then the thing about cooks, we are excited about him because, you know, Jerry golf, he's okay after on the depo, you know, Not good, Not bad.
DeShaun Watson is one the best deep throwing quarterbacks in the NFL.
That right there excites us as where we are probably going to looking for the home run ball.
Ah, lot because that's the type of player you know, that this Sean Watson is he wants the home run the homeroom play.
So he tried it against Baltimore.
Man is going to get to the oh, So here's what gets me mad about that game is you have 14 days to prepare, right? 14 days, They're come, you know, you know? So I think those three games we had the Ravens, the Patriots and the courts and we said, if you some how get two out of three, you know, then you go.
We We thought the two out of three was gonna be the Baltimore Ravens win in that game.
And in the coats, vice versa.
We beat the pages, and then we beat the courts.
It was from the start menu.
I just spanked us.
And then Earl Thomas said it himself.
You know, we were gonna do him like that.
I didn't know we were going to go out like that.
I was like, Man, I got no pride.
Even though I said that was pass interference in the end zone.
Boys, that was o that argument.
I was like, What did that change the game.
Probably not, You know, just does being completely honest with you guys, but you'll smacked is in all phases of the game.
That's why I think, like, you know, Lamar Jackson is just a crazy quarterback because we couldn't tackle them to save our lives.
And and then I just put this out there and then nukes, if you want to sit with beef, is the problem is we have the quarters to defend your receivers.
So you have and the slot of you put around the copy getting tape on Young coming this year, if not something just like Marla Humphries there, Um, and then on the outside cook again.
He was shut down last year by Peters for the most part, and then we still had Jimmy Smith taken.
Definitely defender Ah Fuller, although in my opinion, they can be sharper.
Home freaking something is the faster the corner.
So and then our problem last year, which I kept saying was a run, I have to run right, the problem and as we jumped by so much that people start running against us.
So what we do, we get colleagues.
We get there wolf beef up that defensive lineman, and then we get ah, Patrick Queen as the middle linebacker rookie.
So to assure that defensive, um, that difference it run.
So against the Texas that look, it was funny because we were in that grey also also pass rushing.
But our corners were well enough, and the show was always looking.
Feel like the biggest comment will say.
He's looking for that perfect pass or that window that he could eat through the guy open, Um, and because our corners are good and our safety, so that when there wasn't happening in the me, you're eating sacks, which we never do.
We have six sacks and then we bring so much blessing.
Then you'll blitz like, what, 52% of the time? I mean, dude, I'll get on that with a defense later, but yeah, well, we'll get to the defense.
So all right, let's it's time to decide this.
Everybody put in their votes.
If you're watching on SportsCastr, feel free ravensoffense or Texans offense. Sunny.
I think we know what our vote is.
I I know what Ruben boats is.
Yes, the local there I got the logo of baby a stun Salah drowned.
You know, I would just say the Houston Texans offense will be crazy because not crazy, but will be just because of that.
Nobody knows what it is yet.
I we we don't know.
So who knows what it's gonna be? But, you know, we're just gonna be excited here to see, man, when we played a tick since early in the week to weigh going communities cheap being happening, man.
Because you guys, the players will know what the offense is about yet.
And check this out that the the Houston Texans normally start off slow normally.
So we went over three. And how to win nine games straight.
You know, we are a team that usually starts are very slow, so it would be fun to see what's gonna happen.
But, you know, we have this saying Yushin into Sean.
We trust D Shawn, save our butts, and we got to put our faith in our franchise quarterback here.
You alright, guys, if you're watching this on YouTube on Wednesday nights, put it in the chat.
Who has the edge of the Ravens offense for the Texans? offense, and I m going to predict that most of my subscribers are going to say the Ravens offense because they're biased.
So I'll just put that out there.
I don't even know what we do this.
I didn't think it. So I guess it.
Their biases just say, What is your name? Yeah.
I mean, I agree.
That was one of the worst Sundays of my life, man.
I was actually feeling like I'm like, man, they're coming off their bye.
I don't know if I feel too good about this game, but then we went up like 30 to 70 mile.
I was I was do I was I was shocked, man.
You know, when I after after the game and when I'm on channel and they like a 15 minute rant.
And then all of a sudden, a bunch of Baltimore fans just found it, and this was just and we're just destroying me or and I have nothing else to say about a manual. Played a good game.
Yeah, I got that in on.
That's that's what you gotta do, man.
Remember when we got beat by the titans? Whoa! My God.
Titans fans were freakin bad.
They were tired like that shocked me.
I was I was like, There's no way this is happening.
So I feel for young man, because, B because, like when we were up 24 Nothing, man, we were We're going.
I was like Hell, yeah, because I you know, we hated the Chiefs.
We were like, screw the Chiefs chiefs.
Friends are terrible.
I a Chiefs fans got to be honest, you nothing against the team.
I like watching the t l A but I think the fan base.
So check this out.
So yeah, I told my friend I was like, OK, and we somehow beat the Chiefs.
I feel very good about the Baltimore Ravens and Tigers game.
He's like Naman, like Raymond's gonna win.
I'm like, I don't know, man when they have LeBron James back there, you know, running with the pill.
He's absolutely unstoppable.
But I didn't know that was gonna happen like that.
I was just shocked.
So then when it was when the Titans one and I was like OK, if we you know, because we could be definitely did silence, I was like And then when we were up 24 nut, Then I'm on.
So we're going to the Super Bowl.
Passable home said, Hold my beer.
We couldn't believe that men.
That was incredible, incredibly bad.
But anyway, that I was pretty said that day, too, because I was talking **** to Chief Spence.
A soon as you guys kicked that field goal, I'm like, Hey, like I went on, Twitter started trolling, and then then they started coming back.
And I'm like, Well, never that host sequins infuriates me as a license fan, because when you you know, when you have a team at home, you know, down 21 nothing, right? And you know just Sean Watson.
You know he's going to get that three yards, its fourth in one, and he tells you you don't have a play.
I'm sorry you have one of the best mobile quarterbacks in the NFL.
Do you have one of the best? Why receivers in the NFL and you don't know what so run.
But yet you're gonna run a fake punt on the Kansas City Chiefs 30 with with Justin Reid, who had who had a tourney, Leiby um, it was just We're not wanna build Bill O Brien's finest moments and he has a lot of those, I'm sure.
Uh, so All right, Let's Ah.
So let's actually do position by position on the offense really quick, and then we'll go to the defense.
OK, so, quarterback, I think Lamar over to Sean way agree with that.
Who was the M V P yet, sir? Unanimous.
Only the 2nd 1 in NFL history.
It's gonna be watching this year.
Boys, You say Moammar will be the movie, and you're saying lots of won't.
All right, so running backs Ravens.
Yeah, offensive line is what's interesting.
I think our tackles for sure are better than that.
That's what that's what.
We'll see his best issues.
One left tackle on council.
Yep, that's what I best.
He's one of the best in the game.
And then I have Stanley, which was the Oprah left tackle last year, saying, Um, yeah, I mean again, I'm a little more concerned than you are Sunny about that interior because we'll see how Fluker fits into the system.
I think we're fine, but my point, my point, is more like little men will tell you you and you can correct me if I'm wrong.
Your best position is your tackles.
Both tackles, right? You interior.
It's on Providers, Howard.
Okay, so I left tackles the old pro Orlando well, made the Pro Bowl and, um, your boy forgiving his the right tackle me didn't mean that, you know, he got hurt, but his five games, he was phenomenal, like you.
And then he got voted to the all rookie team.
So we're just ecstatic to see what he does. Healthy.
My point is, are both Both are strings are tackles.
And our tackles last year were a Pro Bowl and All Pro.
So that's what I would get the edge to it to the old line.
I'll agree with that.
Um, receivers, I think overall, the Texans have a better receiving court than the Ravens because we have a lot of unproven, I think on paper, you know, if Hollywood does have that year that we are expecting him to having that break out big breakout season over 1000 yards, Um, then there's could be an argument may be, And if Miles Boykin can take that second step like everybody's expecting, but I still think, uh, um, having that upward.
But if the art, then that definitely swings to Ravens, favored by a lot.
Well, cause you have, I think if we still had hated her shirt, But, I mean, I don't know, because Mark Andrews is amazing.
Yes, but I'm talking like overall with the receivers you would take.
Brandon looks you would take Will Fuller.
Who else? Randall Cobb.
You wouldn't take those sunny over our risk court.
We have Hollywood, Brown, and yeah, well, Fuller Will Fuller came.
Just jog to the game and torn something and be out.
I mean, wolf fallers in the best shape of his life right now, but yeah, I mean, I agree with you.
I mean, they Brandon Carr has been a no man the past couple years.
Relieve the full time advances in the first year in the slot.
Yet about 800 yards within four. Trust touchdown.
So, you know, evidence that shirt and then and then that leadership that he's bringing his wet is that we are excited about Well, I pay the leadership short and ah, and then Ah, Kenny.
Still, Kenny, Still, it's a shadow of itself.
So it is a good three has been history, let entire life.
And then last year it was a year His she should have step up.
When Will Fuller was in there? He was hurt as well.
Yeah, but that's the other problem with any.
Still, he's usually Nick.
Nothing may your injury, but sees usually playing her.
I don't know, I wouldn't miss.
I think it is a portion.
Fuego receivers, just receivers.
If be hot would have been there, then I would just swing it to them.
Ah, it just goes back to scheme as well, because when Flora wasn't on the fit, our option Our offense was absolutely horrible.
And we've seen when he is, our offense looks like virtually unstoppable.
So it goes back to scheme.
It goes back to coaching.
Fuller was there against us coaching, and if you if you had the tight ends, you guys have a tight and they look like to be seven foot six and religious tight ends.
Yes, but he anything I guess us.
Even though he looked like a giant, he wasn't great.
I think he lacks finesse.
He I think he's gonna be a one year wonder in Darren fellas, A guy Who are you talking about? You know, I do not see him doing it again.
Honestly, that's just me being me.
We have this water polo tight in Cali wearing who we drafted in the third round.
Who people said that, like, intricate, he was the best tight end on the field until he got hurt.
So, I mean, I give you guys everything, just being completely honest, you know? But I love my offensive line.
Okay, I hear you.
Just me being bio.
And, of course, to Sean Watson. Of course.
Okay, fair enough. Fair enough.
All right, let's move on to the defense, then.
Unless just do position by position. So weaken.
Because we've already been that 40 minutes.
Surprise are It's okay.
It's not your fault.
It's We all go on rants.
That's just how this podcast works.
Okay, so D line, um, you know the Texans, they lost deejay reader, right? That's your big loss.
I would say we added coleus.
Campbell, we added Derek Wolfe.
Brandon Williams is healthy.
Um I mean, we have depth.
We drafted Justin Meta BK I don't think there's an argument here. Personally.
I think the Ravens have the better D line.
I mean, I grew it. You are.
We are praying that J.
J. Watt plays a 4 16 games.
We are praying he is, because when he's there, the whole defensive line gets going.
I mean, the 1st 5 games of the season, Merciless had five sacks, five forced fumbles.
One interception to do was looking like he was just gonna be an all Pro.
When JJ why gets hurt, he completely off.
So we So you know, Anthony, we have our new defensive coordinator who were excited about.
We're very excited about Anthony Weaver.
He says, JJ, while playing 16 games is key for us.
Yeah, no, I would agree.
I mean, and I think if you want to add in the edge rushers there, I think the Texans, when everybody is healthy, like you said JJ Watt and merciless our you know, a deadly combo and we just have pretty much Jude on.
And, you know, some guys were hoping can step up.
Watt is part of the deal, and he doesn't plate.
He doesn't play outside Backer.
He's more like interior to be in.
Ah, if you concurrently from wrong like his brother TJ plays outside Backer right yet why this humongous? And that's when he plays well.
But the Texans were in a 34 or 43 e Think they don't know now because of what? Actually, Weaver wants to run.
Yeah, but my point is in the 34 text what was always at the 33 spot on the end and a 43 still at the end? He's not outside backer at all.
I think he's a hell of a player, and I speak You was the best player in the Thean defense.
That's defensive player in the league.
Um, again, did you What I think has been not a shadow.
Is somebody injury? Meaning he getting older injury.
Just making until a problem.
Yes, because read or not being there now, that medal will get open for runs, right? And that affects those outside guys. Ah, lot.
So I think the lie even with J.
Watt reader is gonna be a big loss, because I've been to see, like, if I was a rate the Texas.
I don't understand why they haven't just coal snacks.
Harrison Wright and say like, do you want to be in a one year sheep deal here lugging their This is a run stuffer.
But right now I have to get to the Ravens.
Well, we drafted on Ross Black.
Like who? You know, I'm very high on to be right. I like him a lot.
You know, My friends actually know who he is, so we would shut them.
The deejay reader lost hearts.
It does because a lot of people not only was he farming against the run, you know, a lot of people don't realize that he was very good against the past.
He would have more pressures than with the merciless degenerate, a huge loss knowing that he is a friend of J.
Watt, one of his best friends.
And, you know, he got a bag, man.
You know, I can't blame a player for going out and getting paid 50 mil.
So But you know the line.
We just want everybody to stay healthy.
Okay, fair enough Then.
If we moved to linebackers, I think you've got to give it to the Texans here, men, because we have unproven Patrick Queens, a rookie again, we don't know how he's gonna play, even though way are hoping that he can come into the system and just, you know, fallout.
I think everybody's expecting that.
But he's still a rookie, and I don't want to put all my faith into rookies.
And also remote, slowly caress and startup startup.
Really well, too.
I think the Texans have a very underrated linebacking court man, Absolutely agree.
Are one weak spot happens to be? You know, Bernard, A burkini Ban.
Arjuna ****ey is phenomenal against the run.
That's why you know when when we play against the Tennessee Titans of the world were able to stop the run.
But when we go against offenses who have running backs like the Ravens, like the Chiefs, you know, like Joe mixes all those all those all those are running backs.
Who could catch he? You know he doesn't pay Gooden.
Zach Cunningham, we think, is about to be one of the best linebackers in the A F C, hopefully in the NFL 100 plus tackles.
He is okay and coverage on our best coverage.
Linebacker is Dylan Coal, and the only probably would didn't call was he cannot stay healthy.
But when he is healthy, he is the best linebacker in coverage for the Houston Texans and the Clowney trade.
We got Jacob Martin, you know, edge rusher from Seattle.
The problem was that, you know, like, he wasn't put out on the field a lot, you know? And when he was, he was able to get sacks had three on the season.
You know, when they did a projection that if he played, like, 90% of stamps would had 16? Okay, that's fine.
Ah, mercy is somebody who we definitely overpaid for bone.
He's alongside JJ Watt.
You know, like the dude could really turn it up, you know? And, uh, so, besides that I, like, are linebacking corps besides the Bernard burkini in coverage.
But besides that, we are expecting a lot from this linebacker group.
Just here he sunny.
Yeah, I feel I'm makers.
I'll give it to Texas just because the improving this of ours.
But as I'm hearing, Durant said they thrive on the run.
And I don't remember none of those bitter linebackers being in your against Ravens and we have *** sat.
Cunningham was there, and I remember watching him play.
I like him to be where we made Bobby Wagner look like a fool.
So it's not just, you know.
Yeah, but if we're talking about right ravensfirst Texans, Yeah, I still give it to them right again.
That was just a horrible game, you know? It's like, what, Z And then the other thing is, even though ours could be better in gonna be better a week to, right, I agree.
All right, so let's move to the secondary then.
And I mean, the Ravens have one of the best, probably the best secondary in the NFL.
If we're being honest, Um, and the Texans, I feel like that's been one of their weakest spots for the longest time.
Then I don't know if they've really done much to help it out this year, but you obviously, that's why we have you here, Rubin.
So go ahead, man.
Tell us about your secondary.
So this is probably one of the, um, you know, one of the most talented.
We've second as we've had in a while.
We we got rid of J Joe, who was, you know, father time.
You know, we added rally Roby, who, when healthy, he was very good.
You know, we were able to line him up anywhere across the field.
You know, the guy who traded for midseason, Gary on Conley.
We are expecting huge things out of them because, you know, in Oakland, he didn't play in the right system.
He had one interception on the season.
Two pass breakups.
When he comes to Houston, right, he doesn't let a receiver go 85 yards.
He has 11 pass breakups, no interceptions, three pass breakups in the playoffs.
We are excited for Gary on Connor.
We're expecting him, You know, not to be in a Probo are pro player, but to be better than what he was, I'm and then our safety's Justin read, you know, just to read, we we we here, we all love, just we think you're getting the best young safeties.
You know, one of the good young safeties in the NFL.
Hopefully, he takes the next step.
Now the other safety alongside him, we have no clue.
That is Eric Murray.
You know, Bill Ryan is somehow in love with him.
we don't know pretty much.
Why Because because the only game film I saw on Eric Murray was that he sacked Tom Brady.
You know, that's the only game film I have, you know.
But it's pretty much the whole thing about this, about this use and ***.
It seems like we're just expecting people to build off on how good they did last season.
You know, if healthy, we know Bradley Roby is a very good quarter and Gary on Connie.
You know its second year in the new system.
You know, we we love what he brought in his in his eight games with the Houston Texans.
The only question is that other safety spot.
Ah, long side just re.
But this is probably one of the most tense secondaries we have had in a very long time.
So another we are excited about as well.
So let's talk about these matchups, men, this defense versus this offense.
How are the Texans going to stop Lamar Jackson? I don't think they can is the end.
Why was but say that I don't know how anybody stop Lamar Jackson last season, you know, and Mark Jackson special.
You know, you know, And that's just me giving you guys.
Probably. I said I give props. All teams.
Lamar Jackson is a different animal.
Um, you know, I think, you know, I think the NFL was gonna try to change because of Lamar Jackson.
I think people are going to look for players who have ungodly speed.
You know, we saw Isaiah Simmons go top 10.
He's a freak of nature.
You know, I really think that Lamar Jackson would changing, and and I've said this before, I think I think he's gonna change the NFL.
I think people are gonna draft, you know, to stop him because he's he's his speed is unmatchable.
And, you know, and then the one misconception was he can throw Didn't look like a week.
One do was throwing bombs, you know? And then it was just like, word of this guy come from.
You know, the only question is like, you know, in the playoffs, he has, you know, fought off, But I'm not going to blame too much.
He still a young quarterback, you know, But, I mean, it's very hard to start Lamar Jacks.
I don't know who is going to stop Lamar Jackson? Yeah.
I mean, well, I don't know how to, so we're just gonna try to find out whatever they did.
Yeah, and I mean, you get to face him twice a year, so you can, you know, you can ask them like a man, Give us some tips, you know, I don't know.
Um, but anyway, so all right.
I think we have to put a vote here.
Ravens, Defensor, Texas defense.
I think you know Ravens defense is I think it's better than most teams, to be honest, so don't feel bad about this, But I am going to give the edge to the Ravens defense, Sonny.
Pretty sure you agree.
You see the Reuben any any disagreements here? No, but I'm biased.
Just so you could Yes, it's I mean I mean, you guys are a good team.
I mean, there's a reason why people are picking your guys to go to the Super Bowl because you guys draft amazing.
You guys did great traits.
I mean, they're the trades we've done compared to you guys getting Kallias Campbell A lot of stuff.
I'll tell me about it.
That's Could you imagine if, like Eric DeCosta was actually on the Texans, man, he would actually put a team around the show if he was on the Texans.
Bill, Brian would not be here.
Yeah, hell, yeah.
You know, we are.
We are hoping not Hope you're you know, cause, like, you know, because, like, I don't want to wish bad on my team, you know, because I want them to succeed.
I want them to try to win the Super Bowl.
You know, if Bill Brian is gone, you know, I want somebody from, you know, I want Eric being to me. That's just me.
You know him with with Sean Watson, man, it's gonna be special.
That would be nice.
All right, let's move on to the underrated aspect of football.
The special teams.
Now again, we have the best kicker in the league.
Probably probably in best NFL in NFL history.
Collage Mao, the Texans.
I'm not really sure about their kicking situation.
Then you gotta tell So So Comix. Okay.
Uh, commedia fairbairn here, like 26 letter than his last name.
He led the NFL in points two years ago, And then last season, he looked like he was just fell off.
You know, we change punters, and we are No.
Holding is a big part of the kicking game.
You know, we heard Pat McAfee say himself when he was drafted, Adam military sent him.
So basically ah, holding school in the first couple weeks were rough for Kemi for, but we're not gonna lie.
We were We were like, Why are we not bringing somebody in? You know, it's a challenge him Then when him and Bryan Anger got it going coming, Fairburn was just I was just what he was, you know, like, the year before that we love can be fair band.
You know, he's a nice kid.
I like him. The punter, Bryan Anger.
We did not know about him.
And so he breathe out. Trevor, Daniel.
And then we and he was just kicking bombs towards the end of the season.
Um, John Weeks, one of the you know, we think he's a very good long snapper is being here for absolute ever.
We signed Michael Thomas from the Giants, who has been known to be a special teams monster.
So the you know, the special teams we are excited about who is back there.
You know, like returning kicks.
We don't know yet.
Whether was DeAndre Carter or Kiki boutique Kiki cooties in the doghouse at, you know, at the moment I mean, he's been in the dark out for the past two years about you guys, but, you know, the special teams is when is one good We're very excited about uncomfortable with? Yes.
So it sounds kind of like us, man, because we don't really know who is gonna be returning either.
I meet up supposedly What? What's his name? The Anthony Thomas Sonny.
That's his name, right? The Anthony told us occurring restart.
Everybody loved that guy.
Bottom organ, right? Yeah. Yep.
Everybody loves this guy.
But he, I mean, on the Ravens just hasn't done anything that, you know, we we the Texas haven't had a kickoff return.
Tyler perimeter touchdown since, like, 2012? Yeah.
Same since Jacoby Jones.
Who we actually got from the Texans.
Remember that? Uh, yeah, Thank you.
We turned about to be a good player.
He should have been M v p. That gay man.
Stop it in the Super Bowl way Were arguing this again.
How is happy for Jacoby, man.
I love Jacoby, man.
He's one of the Ravens that I missed the most.
I can't lie to you.
Um, but that being said, I mean, I think the kicking has to go to the Ravens.
Clearly the hunter.
I would argue we have the better puncher again.
The return game is kind of a wash.
So Ravens again, In my opinion, we have the best long snapper in the NFL on John weeks.
Okay, There you go.
I could that on your fridge.
Whatever makes you worried on my sleep.
Uh, okay, so let's ah, let's close it out with the last category.
And I know this one's kind of going to be a little bit funny, but we got to get to it.
Men, The coaching Bill O brien, Men.
The biggest MIM, I would say in the NFL, will one of them for sure.
So, um, I don't know.
I worry, man, because I don't think Bill a bright Let me let me put this out there.
I don't think he's a bad coach.
I mean, obviously there they've won the division for the past.
What? Like three years, Four years, So, like two years.
And he's doing something right.
But the problem is, what he gets into those situations that he needs to make the right call.
I just wouldn't trust him in that, right.
So I mean, okay, nobody go ahead.
I mean, we have way have people who love Bill Brian here, which we don't know why I personally am not a big fan of him.
I'm just excited to see what's gonna happen, but it just comes down to consistency.
Bill, Brian is a good coach.
Don't get me wrong toe win, you know, to go to the playoffs with quarterbacks like Brock Osweiler, like Brian Hoyer.
You know, you are obviously doing something right.
The the thing that gets me frustrated, Why haven't you taken a leap forward? You know, why haven't you made it past the second round? You now have a good quarterback, you know, a franchise quarterback.
And yet we're still at the same spot, you know, Like I said, we've seen him wink pretty big games this season for Bill, Brian was probably one of his best, because the narrative was he could not be good quarterbacks and yet we beat Philip Rivers and then, you know, then then come to find out that the charges were just horrible.
We beat the Falcons and then to come find out, you know, that the Falcons were just horrible.
We beat the Patriots, somebody who's been are you know, who is basically honest the past 10 years.
So he's had a lot of big wins this season.
But he's had a bunch of horrible wins against the Broncos, only putting up 12 points against the Jaguars and lead in the Kansas City Chiefs.
Come all the way back.
Yeah, that was rough.
I think the biggest problem is letting Bill B A g m.
I think if each is the Koshi essence or about anything else, it's fine being GM.
You have this eye added responsibility throughout the year, completely agreed.
You know, the only thing was that we were griping that you know that Rick Smith was holding Bill Brian back.
You know, we were like, Well, risk make doesn't make the moves in for agency.
He's horrible drafting third round.
You know, we need Bill Brian to get a GM that he is gonna be cahoots with.
So you know Rick Smith? He takes the lead from the tastes to take care of his wife on.
And then we signed Brian Game and we were excited, right? These guys are supposed to be best friends, and then we bring in a tire on Matthew, which were excited about something that Houston *** work.
Oh, we're finally making big moves.
And then Brian Game gets fired.
What's so then and then build? Brian, you know, gets the title of GM and, well, it's kind of Ah, three headed GM as Bill O'Brien Jackie's to be.
And then I think someone forgot his name.
I should remember it, but I've said this many times.
Bill, Brian is playing God.
Yeah, you know, um, as far as the GM goes, he's made horrible decisions, you know? And you know, But, you know, he did trade for Carlos Hyde, who were absolutely excited, you know, he was a top 10 Russia in the NFL.
He did bring in our best left tackle since Dwayne Brown.
So he hasn't really been, you know, horrible of the sense.
But it's just when you give a big names like Clowney and you don't get a first round pick when you give a big names like DeAndre Hopkins and don't get a first round pick and then you get, you know, our running back who you know, they basically gave up on you know, it could all change, because next, you know, tomorrow you know, you could see Bill Brian San Antonio Brown, and then the Texan stands will be happy.
So this thing going around in Texas Twitter is that, you know, we get Antonio Brown, and then we find a way to get Jamal Adams way.
Are looking for, like, two way.
We're looking for any type of way to, like give O'Brien like, hey, like a path snow, not a path like Show us you know what you're doing.
But let me push back something here.
You and I were at the end.
I mean, the Tunsil thing is a product off bad drafting.
It's easier to get Tunsil when you give up two first round picks.
You know how many players get traded for two Phileo Mac.
So yes, I can get a superstar like that if I get give two first round and 22 a half months of the player.
Yeah, course, you can probably go get most players in the leak.
If you treat to first rounds, I get my labs.
You want your Malena's first run on the future and then pay him and they will send it to you.
I don't think that's good jamming, because at that point, you over pay at Tunsil's country was overpaid as well, right? So I think it's a product of a bad drafting.
I think Howard, when they drafted how, where they thought he could slide into left tackle, I agree with you.
They wanted Diller there a demonstrated back with the Eagles.
Eagles, got Diller, Um, and we'll see how Biller Place.
But they Howard got in.
He couldn't play left tackle had been look like it.
And they went and said, Well, we need to spend two first round picks because we cannot fix this left tackle on tonsil.
So I still think Bill O Brien's one of the worst years the league has, and the best thing that Houston could do is say, Dude, I'm gonna put a GM here and you just worry about coaching and yeah, I mean, obviously, good point I've heard that.
It just you know, it just depends on the day you ask me and I'll flip once I don't want, you know, the whole thing about the limit tonsil trade.
It wasn't due to bad draft because we had Duane Brown, who was a very good left tackle.
We traded him away for, you know, political purposes, you know? And then we signed Matt Kalil, and for some odd reason, they thought Michael was gonna just revive his career.
We I was like, There's no no, sir, Um And then you didn't sign the guy.
Who played for the Patriots on And then the Raiders? Enough signing him.
I'm forgetting his round. Yes.
Brown was a triple better brown.
Something brown you don't sign him for.
For I think he got, like, a $50 million deal.
You know, he was absolutely huge.
And then, you know, and then you trade two first round picks for Lhermitte, son.
So you know, and I mean, I'm happy.
We gotta learn me Tunsil.
You know, he's looked like he's, but he's about to become a great left tackle, you know, for the next five years or three years or however long we got him for, Um, but, you know, that's just the way Bill Brain does things, man.
I mean, it is tough because, you know, you go on the Madden and you do the trade similar.
And the traders like, Nope, not even close.
You know, That's why that's why people call Bill Brian.
That's why some people call him King Bill, because he is the king of the Houston Texans at the moment, you know, right now, you know, right now we have a trend.
Inhabits a monarchy.
You know, And then, like, right now, right now, we have ah hashtag called code Bill.
Because when you know, like whenever code bill was happening, we know something happens.
You know, as of right now, the Houston, Texas do have something in the works.
We don't know what it is.
We don't know what it is, but it's cold.
Bill, man, that's rough.
You are never like settled as a Houston Texans fan.
You know, one day I'm at work. Ha.
Penetrated two weeks later, we get Brennan cooks, man, It's so crazy, man, I would just I would be fearing for my life every time they flake.
If Bill O Brien was our GM and coach, I'd be like he's gonna trade Lamar Jackson do tomorrow.
I swear to God, I don't trust him. I don't trust this guy.
He's gonna trade him for 1/5 round pick or something.
Well, the one thing about that, right? Because a bunch of people were saying, Oh, just Ron Watson should ask for a trade.
You know, it was very surprising to Sean Watson is very fond of Bill O Brien.
He really? Yes, we we are surprised as well.
Way are surprised as well, but he is very fun about Bill.
You know, Watson, we know isn't going anywhere.
If it was up to me, I would sign Watson right now and then let go over Brian.
But no, that's not the way things are gonna happen.
Um, you know, we're just We are hoping that, you know, Bill, Brian somehow turns it around, you know, just like the one thing we are, you know, looking up to is that, like, the fact that they all believe this badness is gonna work, you know, they believe that whatever they're doing is gonna work.
And, you know, I rather have somebody who's all in, you know? Then you know, then, like just somebody like, Well, maybe this is gonna happen.
Sounds good, man.
Well, let's get to Thescore Prediction for this game.
I'm very interested to see where this goes.
Who has the ultimate edges it the Baltimore Ravens in week two, adding to travel to Houston, right? Well, provided that the season happens.
And if there's fans, I don't know, we don't know its's crazy time, as we all know.
But who has the ultimate edge? I am going to say.
Not surprisingly, the Ravens can win this game.
I don't think it's gonna be like last year.
I don't think it's gonna be an absolute blowout, because again, I wasn't even predicting that.
You know, last year I didn't even think that was gonna happen.
I thought it would be a close game like 24 20 or something like that.
So this year I think that that's what we're going to get.
I think it's gonna be a little bit closer.
I think DeShaun Watson is gonna be a little more prepared.
Now he's gonna understand that he can't just hold on to that ball, man, because we're coming.
We're blitz or blitzing all game, so you better be ready for that.
Um, I think the Ravens can win this game, and I'm gonna say I'm gonna give it a score prediction of 27 to 20.
Sunny, what do you think? Prediction.
Your score? Um, no, I think last year actually predicted was going to be close.
I think this year the Ravens, when I actually think the Ravens win by a little bit more than last year.
But more than what I predicted.
I think of Texans are a little bit worst, and I also think they're going to struggle the beginning because a lot of new things coming into the system with not a lot of time and I think I'm beginning anything new is probably going to struggle.
I will say this from our middle linebacking corps, and I will say for anything that it's cause I knew Texas at nearest years.
I think they're gonna struggle the beginning thing there.
A mystic um, vanishing That, I think. 28.
Well, all right, Ruben.
What do you think, then? Let's go.
The Baltimore Rivers are going to get to a lead and then do Sean Watson is gonna become the clutch master that he is, but it's definitely going to run out of time.
It sounds pretty realistic, but I mean, is just the way we way we played, you know, in the this is you know, I've said this before that the worst thing that could have happened to the Houston Texans would that was that DeShaun Watson escaped that sack against the Buffalo Bills, you know, because we would have probably had a new coach, we would have probably been excited, you know? Yeah. Yeah.
I mean, yeah, right.
Like when I saw people like That's pretty good.
But that's not who do Sean Watson is.
Somebody who's who who was gonna take over a game like he did.
You know, this season is gonna be, ah, phone work with the Houston Texans.
One thing I know for sure is that when you have to shine, Watson.
Man, you're never out of it.
That's true that Sean Watson can think he's a great quarterback.
Man, I really do love that guy.
