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.

He discussed a lot of the issues that the Giants are having and the fact that they are very much a work in progress.

Color analyst Spencer Tillman joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss a wide range of football topics. They started out talking about Kenny Hill and A&M’s performance last Thursday. Tillman discussed which teams with a poor week one performance have the most to be worried about this season. He talked about the importance of having a good quarterback for any college football team. Tillman also spoke about the different way he has seen O’Brien approaching his head coaching position so far. He says that the Texans offense just may take a while to get things together but he doesn’t foresee any problem for the defense. Tillman believes Texans will win this first game and will be a force to be reckoned with this season.

Tonight the B-Straw & Pauly G Show Road Trip traveled to Denver the day before the Texans and Broncos preseason game.

He thinks the joint practices were really good for both teams. Rice says the Broncos defense is starting to mesh with the new pieces they’ve added. He says the defense definitely is something that needs continued work for the team this season.
Former Texan Nick Ferguson joined The B-Straw & Pauly G show to talk football. Ferguson discussed his experiences playing Peyton Manning and warned that Manning is always watching what’s going on around him. He said that Ryan Fitzpatrick can make some good plays but he needs to do more than that to be a really good quarterback in the league. He said that having Watt and Clowney helps the Texans a lot, but they need more than that to win games. He thinks that DJ Swearinger needs to cut down on his smack talk and show more on the field. Ferguson thinks O’Brien will “right the ship” though it may not mean they’ll get to the Super Bowl in the next year or two.
