B-Straw & Pauly-G Show
Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip was all about Jacksonville. They went first to Florida to talk to Dr. David Thompson about the situation with Clowney’s knee that will keep him out of the Jacksonville game and the remainder of the season. Then they traveled to Jacksonville to talk to Mark Long who covers the Jaguars for the Associated Press. He discussed the expansions the Jags have made this season as a franchise and what that is doing for the team.
Eli Manning is not the long-term solution, in fact the best hope for that would be Ryan Mallet because the Texans will not find that guy in next year’s draft.
Whether statistically or otherwise, 4-5 does beat 2-7, and the Texans are playing with much more intensity and urgency than under Gary Kubiak a year ago, still as “bye-weeks” go this will be a defining one for Bill O’Brien and the Texans.
Perhaps its roots don’t start in the small Texas towns where seven-on-seven football is played, but the offense that Chip Kelly’s Eagles used to beat the Texans 31-21 at NRG on Sunday is as Texas […]
Were the regular season to have ended last weekend, Mississippi State (1), Florida State (2), Auburn (3), and Ole Miss (4) would be playing for the title.
“With Mercilus and Clowney it can be unbelievable with those two guys out there and you add Brooks Reed being a tough guy and run stopper, if we can get all those guys on the field at one time it will be tough for the Titans.”
Former Boston Globe columnist Bob Ryan joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss the World Series and if baseball can stay relevant. He also weighed in on Roger Goodell’s handling of the situation with Ray Rice. Ryan is glad to see some of the changes in sports protocol on domestic violence.
If the playoff committee chooses finding the best four teams over politics – which I think is HIGHLY unlikely – two teams will come from the SEC and at least one from the Big-12.
The sad, perhaps overlooked truth is the avalanche of mistakes started with the snowball that was Watt’s offsides. Instead of Pittsburgh punting from the back of its end zone, the Steelers were off and running to victory.
Jayson Braddock, NFL analyst for Rotoworld, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss Jadeveon Clowney’s injury situation. He said that Clowney doesn’t want to play but the team is trying to force him to get back on the field sooner. He thinks that having Mike Vrabel around is very helpful to a guy like Clowney who needs to be pushed. Braddock talked about the fact that Clowney is seen as a bit of a diva when it comes to his dealings with the trainers and some of his other behaviors. He does think that over time Clowney will mature but he needs time.
