A breakdown of the Texans draft pick failures
Hub Arkush, chicagofootball.com, joined MaD Radio to talk all things NFL. He feels that it really doesn’t matter where the NFL draft is so it really doesn’t matter if they move where they hold it. Arkush is confused by Andre Johnson’s recent behavior and really cannot see him going elsewhere so it should get resolved. He thinks that the best case scenario when it comes to Fitzpatrick is that he somehow becomes a much better quarterback than he has been so far. He really thought Fitzpatrick was just being brought on as a backup and the quarterback situation is the only problem he has with the way the team is right now. He thinks Bill O’Brien is the right guy to coach the Texans but he isn’t sure if he has enough to work with to turn the team around. Arkush thinks Johnny Manziel has a tough road ahead of him at quarterback but that he will be fun to watch.
Today on MaD Radio, Mike and Seth discussed the possibility of Seth starting to work for the Uber cab service. He explained why he wants to give it a try and his thoughts on the service in general. Seth has already passed the online background check and has wanted to be a cab driver since he was a kid. He also discussed some of the misgivings that he is having about trying it like the fact that he is somewhat of a public figure. Seth thinks it would be fun to pick up athletes and take taxi cab confessionals of drunk people.
T. D. Williams, Medium.com, joined MaD Radio to discuss an article he wrote on Daryl Morey. Williams explained why he has been critical of Morey because he hasn’t taken Houston “to the promised land” yet. He said he isn’t against the use of analytics in basketball, but says they have to be used careful. He said that Morey has created what he calls a “treadmill team” and doesn’t agree with his decision to not bring Chandler Parsons back. Williams said that he hasn’t felt Houston has really contended yet as they should have. He doesn’t think Morey is a terrible GM and he thinks the story has been over reported.
