    Houston Texans Podcast: Overwhelmed by the Immensity of Life (Texans-Colts Review)

    I'm old, I'm tired, and I'm stupid, and of the three, and most of all, I'm stupid. Yes, I know the Texans lost 31-3 to the Indianapolis Colts, but throughout this episode I said the Colts scored 34 points. After all these years, and all these games, somethings get lost in the wind. You know, like how many games Houston lost in Indianapolis before Bill O'Brien broke the curse, or how many receptions T.Y. Hilton has against them over the years, or which year Mike Vanderjagt nailed a game winning kick with zero seconds left. Carrying about the exact and precise details are for nerds, the ones who miss doing homework. We are big picture thinkers. Sucking in the enormity of everything and exasperating only what matters. Three points isn't that big of a deal. Understanding Davis Mills's skillset is what does. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and BFD, review Houston's 3-34 3-31 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Topics include: what is Davis Mills good at, Laremy Tunsil's absence having zero impact on this game, the terrible rotten game plan that Tim Kelly came up with, Jonathan Greenard's break out game, picking through the young talent, Nick Caserio bashing, and if there's anything Lovie Smith can do, and the Sisyphian nature of the last 11 games of the season.

    We know how it's going to be. The Texans are going to be 1-7. Then Tyrod Taylor will be healthy, but by then, the ones who fought and bickered about everyone being too negative, for not giving Nick Caserio a chance, that this rag tagged band of veterans would actually be good, will have logged off a long time ago. They'll come back next free agency period, and next NFL Draft, once the players who left the Texans are suddenly terrible, and the ones who join the team, are suddenly incredible. Then we will crawl our way back through the summer and do it again, until the Houston Texans are good again. This is the point. Football is really good even when the Texans aren't, and the podcast is still good when the Texans aren't. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview Week Six of the 2021 NFL season. Topics include: Davis Mills replicating his break out performance, Carson Wentz disaster artist, the Ravens running an offense without a run game, reminiscing on Justin Herbert's 2020 season back when he used to make sublime throws, Ja'Marr Chase being the better pick over Penei Sewell, Jared Goff running left and all the joys Detroit football has to offer, never watching the New England Patriots again, and the unstoppable and limitless Dallas offense.

    This season they once again gave it to New England. New England's defensive backs popped off tackles. They hit a flea flicker. Damien Harris fumbled into the endzone. Mac Jones threw an interception that was too far inside to Lonnie Johnson Jr. Everything changed after one terrible decision. Rather than punt the ball, they faked the fake punt, and Cameron Johnston rocked one off his own teammate. New England was given easy field position. They scored. Then they continued to score until a late field goal finally gave them a lead. Johnston's foot didn't meet the ball, it met a sarcophagus, that cracked open and unleashed a green garish curse onto the Texans football team. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and Diehard Chris, review Houston's 25-22 loss to the New England Patriots. Topics include: David Culley's many snafus, the fake-fake punt, CBS's MK Ultra fall television lineup jingles, if Davis Mills sold snake oil today, the Texans not being able to run the ball against a terrible run defense, Lovie Smith's defensive adjustments, a stale pass rush against an offense missing four starting offensive linemen, your beautiful and wonderful listener questions, and of course, some movie talk.

    I know how it's going to go. After all offseason of clamoring for Nick Caserio, the veterans he signed, his draft class, and the trades he made, it will disappear. Texans fans will head to their caves. Waiting for the NFL Draft. While we are left in the rubble, digging through the ruins. Here week in and week out watching Davis Mills complete one pass in an entire half, and quarterbacks complete every pass. Then we'll do it again next year, and maybe the next year, and I guess this is just the way it is, and it will never end. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview Week Five of the 2021 NFL season. Topics include: how many beers it takes to turn Mac Jones into Tom Brady, Davis Mills being unable to cover a ten point spread at home, Kyler Murray MVP, what a Trey Lance offense may look like, the Cowboys remaining calm, the Giants vertical passing offense waking up, Josh Allen needing to get better, and the holes in Kansas City's armor.

    Love and savor Josh Allen. Let his loving grace into your heart. It's never too late to atone. If you didn't realize he was the one true quarterback after leapt over Anthony Barr, or when he stiff armed J.J. Watt in the pocket, or caught a touchdown pass against Houston in a playoff game, or found his deep ball and turned into a top five MVP caliber quarterback, then maybe you realized it today, when he led a Bills team that skunked Houston 40-0. It was the worst loss in Texans franchise history. It was the third worst start by a starting quarterback in Texans franchise history. Without a running game, in the rain, with only Brandin Cooks to throw to, Davis Mills was left to die in the plains, squashed by stampeding Buffaloes, or Bills, I don't know, the name doesn't make any sense. Hopefully now you have discovered the truth, and let the light through. If this game didn't, there may not be any hope left for you. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and John Cumpler (@TexansDoc) reviewed the worst loss in Texans franchise history. Topics include: what does Davis Mills do well, if they failed him by not signing a true backup quarterback for Deshaun Watson, what is wrong with the Texans run game, could Brandin Cooks be on the move, Lonnie Johnson Jr. and Desmond Kings's performances, the bright spots on the defense, and of course, your beautiful and perfect listener questions.

    The NFL landscape will be spending their time talking, talking, talking about Brady and Bill. Tom left New England for Tampa Bay after a messy divorce, and various teams turning down his services. Entropy going too far. There he proved their complete roster was really a quarterback away, leading them to a Super Bowl. The Patriots were on fire with Cam Newton to start the season, but his body and his arm quickly flailed out. Their run defense, atrocious, their pass defense, mediocre. After finally missing the playoffs, resentful of what happened in Tompa Bay, they went all in this offseason. A horde of signings, new quarterback, doing the things they never used to do. But, see, we are real football men, talking about real football, instead of engaging in the gossip and the drama. It's PEOPLE magazine. It isn't football. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview Week Four of the 2021 NFL season. The grace and light of Josh Allen, if Davis Mills will survive another week, taking back what was said about Dakary, if Carolina's defense is real or if it's made of sand, Teddy Bridgewater's Quarterback Club, still feeling lukewarm about the Baltimore Ravens, putting Kyler Murray MVP talks into the buzzsaw, and the Los Angeles juggernaut.

    Your Houston Texans already played their football game. Davis Mills already had Tim Kelly put his pacifier in this mouth, Lovie Smith's defense already forced zero turnovers, Houston already wasn't able to run the outside zone once again, and Christian McCaffrey already hurt his hamstring.

    In Tygod we trust. In Davis Mills we drown in sorrow. Houston was electric in the first half. Tyrod Taylor had one incompletion, ran and passed for a touchdown, executed Tim Kelly's offense perfectly, and had a QBR of 94.8. Justin Reid forced two turnovers all on his own. Houston went into the half tied 14-14. Then disaster struck. Taylor suffered a hamstring injury, and in came Davis Mills. He was sacked once, fumbled once, threw one interception, managed one touchdown drive aided by a 27 yard pass interference penalty, and he had a QBR of 10. The accuracy was spottier than a through hiker's underwear. The arm strength was fuzzy. His pocket presence was non existent. Pray for Mills. He needs it. Shades of New England 2017 turned putrescent and green. Houston went from the feel good hit of September, to bad, but not only that, they were bad and boring. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and Scott Martin (L4Blitzer) review the Texans 31-21 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Topics include: why Tyrod Taylor had so much success against the Browns in the first half, Tim Kelly's efficient offensive scheme, the disastrous start to Davis Mills's career, the pass protection holding up, Justin Reid crushing it as a split safety, the cracks in the Lovie Smith defense, and the murderous future coming for the Houston Texans.

    The last 18 months have been obscene. Blowing a 24 point lead, trading DeAndre Hopkins, adding only Eric Murray and Ross Blacklock to a bottom pass defense, starting 0-4 and immolating the Bill O'Brien era, watching Deshaun Watson's teammates actively sabotage him, Watson's trade request after the Nick Caserio hiring process, another draft without a first or second round pick, and a summer of malaise, the good news is that football has started again, and all of that is down the drain.

    Last year was too perfect. It was a real Disney fairy tale. The Bucs won eight straight games in a row, beating Washington, New Orleans, and Green Bay on the road, and taking down the Chiefs, finally, at home, in the Super Bowl. The Patriots were at home.

    Houston Texans Podcast: The Deshaun Watson Lawsuits

    There's no end to this timeline. This past January Deshaun Watson shocked the NFL and the Houston Texans by requesting a trade after Nick Caserio was hired, then David Culley was hired, doing nothing to change Watson's mind about the whole thing; an ominous late night tweet detonated a barrage of sexual assault allegations with the official count piling up to 22, Houston didn't trade Watson, he headed to training camp, and was missing yesterday once the pads piled on. Trade rumors. Civil suits. The NFL's investigation to nowhere. A possible future trade. That's what we eventually have to look forward to. To help us make sense of this mess, The Defector's investigative editor Diana Moskovitz joined Battle Red Radio. Topics include: how the news rolls out for allegations like this, the similarity between the allegations, how long this can go on for, what you don't know, and the NFL's own investigative process.

    The AFC North has undergone a transformation. It used to be Pittsburgh v. Baltimore, year in and year out, year in and year out, and wah-wah-wah. Things change, and things have changed. Lamar Jackson has failed to take the next step, Ben Roethlisberger is an overweight point guard, and now the Browns have entered the arena. The division has morphed into Cleveland v. Baltimore, with an expected Pittsburgh regression, and the Bengals, well they are still painting their stripes on. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview the AFC North. Topics include: Lamar Jackson v. the sideline pass, wanting to love the Cincinnati Bengals, Hunting for a Chubb, the pneumatic nail Cleveland drove into their roster this offseason, Big Ben's diet, and just how dire 2021 can be for Pittsburgh.

    I told you. I ————— told you. Get past the negativity, stop being smarter than you are, just breath in God's breath taking the form of Josh Allen playing football. Enjoy it. Don't get wrapped up in decision making, or accuracy, or deep ball problems. Those are manmade creations, fabrications from pink folds, and stink emitted from marrow. Suck in the sublime sunlight. Savor him leaping Anthony Barr, stiff arming J.J. Watt, turning a quarterback sneak into a seven yard gain. These are examples proving his existence. And now look where we are. Allen is a top five quarterback, the Bills made the leap, and you couldn't enjoy it because you are wrapped up in your fork tongued lies. Your consciousness is merely the tip of an iceberg. Allen reverberates beneath the sea. The good news is that you can always atone, you can always be saved, sit back and enjoy the Bills, the AFC East, and this preview of the division grace resides in. On this week's episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview the AFC East. Topics include: possible Josh Allen regression, getting excited about Emmanuel Sanders, if Tua breaks out, the Dolphins not being able to force as many turnovers, Mac Jones week one starter, Bill Belichick's free agency bonanza, Corey Davis wide receiver number one, and if this is the regime that will rebuild the Jets.

    NFL free agency has kind of sort of already come and gone. The big dollars have been handed out. The big names have new homes. Sure, there will be stragglers, and there will be cuts to join the existing stragglers, but rosters are pretty much in place until the 2021 NFL Draft now.

    After allowing Bill O’Brien to snip, then slit, then gut, and finally immolate the Texans roster, Houston brought in an actual general manager in New England Patriots super genius Nick Caserio. All of that brain power knows things the rest of the NFL doesn’t know. That Kamu Gruiger-Hill is actually an all-star coverage linebacker, Kevin Pierre-Louis is actually better than Jon Bostic and Cole Holcomb, that Terrance Mitchell is ready to break out at age 29, and Derek Rivers is more than just a recipient of a Jack Easterby wedding ceremony. He’s smarter than you, he’s smarter than the rest of the NFL, and don’t you doubt him one bit, because he’s the man who will build the next great football team, because he, and only he, knows that Maliek Collins belongs on magazine covers and not the waiver wire. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston, Carlos Flores, and Joe Critz review the first three days of the 2021 NFL offseason. Topics include: the trades Nick Caserio made to actually bring in talent, the long list of non-playable characters Nick Caserio signed, getting excited about Maliek Collins and Christian Kirksey, the Tyrod Taylor era, remaining free agents the Texans can still target, and, of course, your beautiful and perfect listener questions.

We say bookoo bookoo times as dollars are scattered across the country to pay for the services of the football playing men. In the immediate future teams will continue to snip and sniff and lick and create cap space, and call and call and call to try and churn veterans into picks, doing everything they can, to build the next great version of their current team, or try and keep the window open for the team they already have.

    #99. Navy and battle red. Iconic. This number, these jerseys, strewn across the city of Houston for the last ten years will eventually find its way sealed in Canton. Buzzed head. Dead stern look. Eventually sculpted in bronze. J.J. Watt. An all-time great, the greatest player in Texans franchise history, and one of the greatest, if not the greatest defensive linemen to every play the game. 20.5 sacks twice. 50 plus quarterback hits multiple times. Making fumble recoveries a skill. Showcasing the value of batting passes down at the line of scrimmage. THE CLUB. The broken nose gushing after every series. An entire leg bruised purple. Torn pectoral. Back surgery. Broken leg. He gave it all to the franchise, this fanbase, and now after ten years, it’s all gone away. Dream big. Work hard. Success isn’t owned, it’s leased, and rent is due everyday. The Texans released J.J. Watt to create $15.5 million in cap space. A decade, an entire era, has come to a close. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and Diehard Chris dream big and work hard and pay the rent by discussing the Texans decision to release J.J. Watt, and the end of an era of Houston Texans football. Topics include: why releasing J.J. was stupid, what this means for the Texans going forward, the night he was drafted, his absurd 2012 and 2014 seasons, our favorite memories, where he may land and where we want him to play, the bottom that doesn’t exist, and of course, your beautiful and perfect listener questions.
