We know how it's going to be. The Texans are going to be 1-7. Then Tyrod Taylor will be healthy, but by then, the ones who fought and bickered about everyone being too negative, for not giving Nick Caserio a chance, that this rag tagged band of veterans would actually be good, will have logged off a long time ago. They'll come back next free agency period, and next NFL Draft, once the players who left the Texans are suddenl...

This season they once again gave it to New England. New England’s defensive backs popped off tackles. They hit a flea flicker. Damien Harris fumbled into the endzone. Mac Jones threw an interception that was too far inside to Lonnie Johnson Jr. Everything changed after one terrible decision. Rather than punt the ball, they faked the fake punt, and Cameron Johnston rocked one off his own teammate. New England was given easy field po...

I know how it’s going to go. After all offseason of clamoring for Nick Caserio, the veterans he signed, his draft class, and the trades he made, it will disappear. Texans fans will head to their caves. Waiting for the NFL Draft. While we are left in the rubble, digging through the ruins. Here week in and week out watching Davis Mills complete one pass in an entire half, and quarterbacks complete every pass. Then we’ll do it again n...

Love and savor Josh Allen. Let his loving grace into your heart. It’s never too late to atone. If you didn’t realize he was the one true quarterback after leapt over Anthony Barr, or when he stiff armed J.J. Watt in the pocket, or caught a touchdown pass against Houston in a playoff game, or found his deep ball and turned into a top five MVP caliber quarterback, then maybe you realized it today, when he led a Bills team that skunke...

The NFL landscape will be spending their time talking, talking, talking about Brady and Bill. Tom left New England for Tampa Bay after a messy divorce, and various teams turning down his services. Entropy going too far. There he proved their complete roster was really a quarterback away, leading them to a Super Bowl. The Patriots were on fire with Cam Newton to start the season, but his body and his arm quickly flailed out. Their r...

Your Houston Texans already played their football game. Davis Mills already had Tim Kelly put his pacifier in this mouth, Lovie Smith's defense already forced zero turnovers, Houston already wasn't able to run the outside zone once again, and Christian McCaffrey already hurt his hamstring. These things have just happened. Football exists past the Houston Texans. There's an entire league of teams and players to show you ...

In Tygod we trust. In Davis Mills we drown in sorrow. Houston was electric in the first half. Tyrod Taylor had one incompletion, ran and passed for a touchdown, executed Tim Kelly’s offense perfectly, and had a QBR of 94.8. Justin Reid forced two turnovers all on his own. Houston went into the half tied 14-14. Then disaster struck. Taylor suffered a hamstring injury, and in came Davis Mills. He was sacked once, fumbled once, threw ...

The fortune tellers have packed up their bags. Crystal balls have turned into bowling balls. The mugs are in the dishwasher. Our hands are now we gloved. For we are now archaeologists, with brushes and shovels, slowly uncovering the unknown. Lithographs and pictographs. Hieroglyphics and monolithic crumbles. Porcelain shards and oligarchs. We are seeing whose good and who isn’t, the surprises, and the typical disappointments. One w...

The last 18 months have been obscene. Blowing a 24 point lead, trading DeAndre Hopkins, adding only Eric Murray and Ross Blacklock to a bottom pass defense, starting 0-4 and immolating the Bill O’Brien era, watching Deshaun Watson’s teammates actively sabotage him, Watson’s trade request after the Nick Caserio hiring process, another draft without a first or second round pick, and a summer of malaise, the good news is that football...

All summer long the 2021 NFL season was pristine and square. Everything you could scrounge up was a possibility. Every big smart idea you had was correct. Nothing was too stupid or too absurd. All of it was in play. Back then we were lost with the fortune tellers with their black magic and crystal balls. This week all of that is set to change. Laplaces’s demon is set to take its long yellow nails and tear it all up. What was once b...

The NFC West has it all. The two most innovative playcallers in the league. A MVP caliber quarterback disenchanted with the franchise he works for. All-time great pass rushers. The newest highly drafted rookie quarterback. Teeny scramblers. Beautiful colors. The desert, the ocean, the fog, and the smog. Teams that make our great game great. On this episode of Battle Red Radio, the 2021 NFL Season Preview comes to as Matt Weston and...

Last year was too perfect. It was a real Disney fairy tale. The Bucs won eight straight games in a row, beating Washington, New Orleans, and Green Bay on the road, and taking down the Chiefs, finally, at home, in the Super Bowl. The Patriots were at home. Tom Brady proved that he will forever be the greatest quarterback of all time, with a head to head win over his young incumbent. It’s almost as if the whole thing was rigged, rath...

The NFC North is exactly the same as it is last year. Green Bay is coming off a NFC Championship Game run, you gotta be faster than that, without any major team improvement while facing regression in 2021. Luckily for them, the rest of the division ranges from a Jared Goff Jigsaw death trap in Detroit, to Andy Dalton in Chicago, to Minnesota’s own struggle to get past pretty alright. Regardless, we’ll still have fun with it, like w...

We plebeians, suck down social media regurgitation from the elites, the ones who attend press conferences, training camp practices, and hawk the sidelines during games. What is already murky and vague, is even more so, by being third handed. Sean Pendegrast joined Battle Red Radio to give us his findings of the Houston Texans so far. Topics include: the difference between a Bill O’Brien and Nick Caserio training camp, David Culley ...

We came here to complete a well thought out, long form, never ending season preview that would teeter between rational thinking and absurdity. Instead it was all absurdity. TIM, Rivers McCown, L4Blitzer (Scott), Uprooted Texan, and call in guests Eddie Hassan, and Smoothgrandmaa all joined in to talk about the 2021 Texans season, and the franchise in general. It’s a sick and twisted thing we are all wrapped up in. Topics include: o...

The NFC East is an insane asylum. What is expected never occurs. Destroyed by their own derangements. A crazy salt loving old man who hires only boobs as his head coach keeping his own ego perfect and pristine. A depressing smatter of black and dark green, who will forever hang on to a hooved footed run from five years ago, tortured by in house fighting, and attempts another try at starting anew. Binders, and binders, and binders, ...

For most NFL fans, the AFC South is an abhorrent wasteland of putrescent pestilence, a reeking virus that plagues the NFL with piss colored jerseys, terrible hairlines, incompetent front offices, mad dash playoff runs that ruin bright and beautiful seasons, hillbilly raccoons, swimming pools, chin dimples, kumbaya organizational cultures, generational quarterback destruction, and neckbeards, so many neckbeards. It’s different for m...
