    Houston Texans Podcast: 2021 Week Seven NFL Preview

    Houston Texans Podcast: 2021 Week Seven NFL Preview

    This is the big one. This is the one everyone had scrawled red on their planners, and set events for in their virtual calendars. It’s the time when the past and the present collide together into one chaotic and poetic platter of schadenfreude.
    It’s a revenge game for everyone. For Hopkins, for Watt, for Johnson, and for a fanbase that was stuck watching listless Bill O’Brien game, after listless Bill O’Brien game, who destroyed the entire team by trading for a left tackle, and trading away a Hall of Fame wide receiver. Living in the remnants of his rubble, the only solace is watching Houston’s former greats in different colors, enacting their own revenge against the previous failures they were stuck playing through.
    On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor preview Week Seven of the 2021 NFL season. Topics include: the Bengals defense finally meeting Baltimore with defensive talent, Baltimore’s run game finally breaking out, everyone getting their chance to beat Kansas City, Derrick Henry king MVP, David Johnson’s revenge game, how many points the line should really be, khaki pants and tucked in shirt Jamies Winston, and Seattle’s crushing run attack.

    Houston Texans Podcast: Sifting Through the Deshaun Watson Rumors

    Houston Texans Podcast: Sifting Through the Deshaun Watson Rumors

    Since Deshaun Watson shocked the world by requesting a trade from the Houston Texans, the hiring of David Culley and Nick Caserio, his sexual assault allegations, and his decision to head to the facility and sticking to the inactives list, we’ve been waiting for a Watson trade to be made. Phrases like ‘in talks’, ‘have had conversations’, and ‘are listening’ have been used, but this week that changed. Major Houston reporters announced that a Watson trade could come as early as the end of this week. It’s Thursday night. Tomorrow is Friday night. Could this finally be the weekend it finally happens?
    To help you sort through the newest Watson rumors, Matt Weston and his good friend Taylor, discussed the newest batch of rumors. Topics include: if Watson will be traded at the end of this week, what the Miami Dolphins could offer, other teams who can join in the mix if the Texans hold on, and the fact that there is no deadline.

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

    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.

    Houston Texans Podcast: 2021 Week Six NFL Preview

    Houston Texans Podcast: 2021 Week Six NFL Preview

    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.

    Houston Texans Podcast: Scar Tissue (Texans v. Patriots Review)

    Houston Texans Podcast: Scar Tissue (Texans v. Patriots Review)

    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.

Taylor.

That Taylor sounds so manly and sexy. 🤤😏He is hilarious and I enjoy the show cause of him. Matts point of views are always good to balance out Taylors ridiculousness. Great podcast for sports fans!
