He says the defense isn’t looking that great heading into the season and some fans are upset the Falcons didn’t try to trade the Texans for Clowney.

Mario Elie joined the B-Straw & Pauly G Show at Man Fest. He talked about how the Spurs have stepped up against the Heat. Elie doesn’t think that Melo is the right fit for the Rockets and believes Kevin Love or Chris Bosh would fit much better with the team. He thinks Harden can improve if he really commits to getting better at defense. He thinks LeBron will stay with the Heat but hope that Bosh will decide to leave to join the Rockets. Elie hasn’t been asked to work with the Rockets but would definitely be open to the offer.

Shiloh Keo Talks Texans Team Building At Man Fest

Texans player Shiloh Keo joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show at Man Fest to talk a little about the team. He says that everyone is working to be better and turn things around. Keo thinks the biggest change between the last regime and the current one is terminology. He said he wouldn’t mind taking on the punt return job but isn’t openly lobbying for it either. Keo doesn’t think the Ed Reed situation last season wasn’t really as big a hit to the team morale as it seemed.
