Realistically, considering the teams I root for, I have a lot more “Miserable Sports moments” in games that I have attended than I do “favorite” ones.

NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks joined Patrick Creighton and Travis Johnson to talk about the Texans. He said Ed Reed will only play if his prognosis shows he is fully ready. Brooks contended that the defense should be able to adjust to not having Antonio Smith in this opening game. He talked about some of the areas the Texans need to work on before the season opener. He gave insight to key players on the Chargers like Philip Rivers. Brooks expects the Texans to win this game.
Jacques Cesaire, former Chargers player, joined Patrick Creighton and Travis Johnson to talk about the Chargers. He said the media in San Diego really hasn’t been as hard on Manti Teo as other cities would have been. He described Dwight Freeney as a beast in the pre-season and said he will be “dangerous” this season. Cesaire said if they keep Philip Rivers healthy then they should be good to go. He says the Texans will really miss having Antonio Smith on the field with them against the Chargers in the opener.
Michael Gehlken, beat writer for the San Diego Union Tribune, joined Patrick Creighton and Travis Johnson to talk about the San Diego Chargers. He talked about how Philip Rivers has a knack for being where he needs to be as quarterback. Gehlken discussed the lack of use of Manti Teo and that he will likely not play in the opener. He discussed other guys to watch for in the opener against the Texans.
Chargers center Nick Hardwick joined Patrick Creighton and Travis Johnson to talk about the up coming match up with the Texans. He talked about the work the Chargers have been doing on their O line. Hardwick said the team has come a long way in terms of their defense. To that end, he talked about there being a lot of new blood on the team all the way up through the management. They are excited to get into the season with a fresh outlook on things.
