More bad news for the Jags! http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/07/31/reeling-jaguars-suffer-another-blow/ …
615- Bradie James Interview… Obviously we can have a ton of fun with the archery stuff, and we will in the top 3 extensively
630- … Top 3 Olympic events YOU’D excel in, and why (Inspired by the Bradie James clip)
645- Someone is going to fall off from last year’s jump up year… Cinci, San Fran or Houston. It’s about even money that 2 of them will, and it’s a damn near historical certainty that at least one of them will… And how much of an addition will Randy Moss be for the 9ers?
Also, aside from injury, what has to happen for this team to not go to the postseason? What’s the nightmare scenario that doesn’t involve injury, because as good as we all think this team will be, they’re far from bullet proof…
700- Andre Johnson interview and discussion. It’s a sold 7 minutes of me and Andre talking about just about everything, at least briefly.
715- Texans vs AFC Powers (as suggested by Vandy)… Texans vs Patriots, Ravens, Steelers, Broncos?
-We can use this as the jumping off point- The AP has released their own power rankings for the NFL! This is wildly exciting to me. http://bigstory.ap.org/NFL-Pro32 And Guess what, I think they actually almost get the Texans spot exactly right… Ahead of Pittsburgh, neck and neck (314pts to 315pts) with the Ravens… and markedly behind the Patriots
730- John McClain… Carry over the previous conversation with John, and let John explain his Flacco > Schaub theory to Vandy while Vandy goes full on VanderSchaub…
745- NO HUDDLE with John McClain… Another day, another torn ACL, this time it’s 2 for the Colts http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/07/31/colts-lose-a-pair-to-torn-acls/ … And Snoop Dogg changed his name to Snoop Lion? ….
800- John McClain… Do Wade Phillips’ comments on JJ Watt affect or anything? And how rare are comments like this from tenured coaches about very young players?
815- RICK SMITH… John McClain
830- John McClain… Sean Payton’s picture looming over the Saints practice field… Drew Brees going all in now as well http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/07/29/drew-brees-saints-believe-strongly-that-weve-been-wronged/ and again, outside of New Orleans, no one seems too outraged. Can you imagine if you were a Saints fan right now? You feel like your team is a legit SB contender and basically ALL your favorite players are saying the NFL is screwing you over entirely… Also, according to the Saints standard of taking comments literally, isn’t the Colts head coach encouraging helmet to helmet hits here http://profootballtalk. nbcsports.com/2012/07/31/chuck-pagano-wants-to-see-his-players-put-their-hat-on-people/ ?
845- John McClain… Is this a template for Duane Brown? http://profootballtalk. nbcsports.com/2012/07/31/ryan-clady-deal-apparently-hung-up-by-9-million-in-guarantees/ 5yrs, 50M with 28M guaranteed is offer on table to Ryan Clady… And is there anything that’s more predictably going to cause problems than iPad playbooks? http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/07/31/redskins-discover-ipads-arent-just-for-playbooks/ …
900- Revisit the Texans vs AFC Powers discussion from earlier, and play Vandy’s Owen Daniels interview…
915- STRAW POLL… The most noteworthy cut from the Andre Johnson interview that we had at 9am…
930- NICK’S NOTES
945- TWO MINUTE DRILL… Wade on Watt, HOF!… Handoff to Mike and Brad
