JOSH INNES AND LANCE ZIERLEIN  ON AIR, TOGETHER? WTF!

Of course the title is misleading, Josh Innes (WIP 94.1) and Lance Zierlein (KBME 790) buried the hatchet.

WHAT BURIED HATCHET?

Josh worked for Sports Radio 610 for approximately four years.  Josh went at established "local personalities" when he partnered with Rich Lord with more visibility.  Part of the establishment Josh targeted was Lance Zierlein who was currently employed at 1560 The Game.  Lance would jab back on air but 1560 The Game's signal was not as powerful enough to reach a lot of fans.  Twitter was in it's infancy.

During minor jabs between the two "here and there" Lance was was in the process of joining Sports Talk 790's THE BIG SHOW.  A station with much more audience reach than Lance's previous employer.  Lance worked mornings and Josh afternoons. During that time period, there were a couple occasions, the two "twitter fought".

Hind-site, it appeared Josh went out of his way to knock Lance off the mountain.  Lance was/is one of the most popular sports personalities in Houston by way of Sports Radio 610.  Lance is known as the "sports guy" in Houston but in reality, he's just  a "me guy" too.  Me guy, wants the attention.  He is very similar to Josh with a deep sports background.

All in all, Josh and Lance were fierce competitors.  They were not competing via time-slots although later they did battle head to head when Josh was at the end of his tenure in Houston and Lance partnered with Charlie Pallilo.

In short, Lance and Josh did not like each other (professionally)  but a weird thing occurred, Sports Radio 610 (Josh's Employer) hired a personality (Nick Wright) that went at Lance.  Josh being the competitor he is, didn't really care for his coworker Nick either.   It's my guess, both did not like Nick which probably brought them together.  #CommonEnemy

Fast Forward to 2015, Lance and Josh on air together talking 2015 NFL Draft in a cordial manner.

Below is audio of Josh Innes welcoming Lance Zierlein on his show in Philadelphia, hats off to Josh for telling his audience, he and Lance had BAD BLOOD in Houston.   Two dominant personalities in a major market with different styles, Josh and Lance.

JOHN LOPEZ - PLAYERS ARE FANS HEROES, THEY SHOULD TALK



JOHN LOPEZ - PLAYERS ARE FANS HEROES, THEY SHOULD TALK

Tuesday morning, Nick Wright and John Lopez (In The Loop) debated player media availability.
Nick laid out his argument, you get more from a player who wants to talk to the media than a player who don't want to talk to the media.  Of course, this was way too complicated for John to understand.  He actually said College and High School kids use the media to get to where they need to go.  He went on to say, when fans say they don't care if players talk to the media, they are lying.

John Lopez make some of the dumbest takes in this "market".  This is a classic case of a guy being wrong and trying to disagree with  a point that clearly makes sense.  Nick's whole point was, you will get more information from a person who wants disclose versus someone who is giving you one word answers.

As I continued to listen to John argue his point of view, it hit me that this guy entitled.  He thinks the media is the be all end all.  These clowns in media try to piggy back on the fans, they do it for the fans.  The fans are not pissed at players who refuse to communicate see Andre Johnson (Houston).  The media ie JOHN LOPEZ is mad because the players don't care to speak with them.  Like I said, one of the dumbest takes I've ever heard

BELOW IS JOHN LOPEZ & NICK WRIGHT'S MEDIA/PLAYER DEBATE.

Former Houston Texan Seth Payne critiques Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Sports Radio 610's Mad Radio. I thought this analysis was pretty damn funny and I'm happy Seth didn't quickly apologize later.  Below is the audio.

JOHN MCCLAIN'S CRAZY GARY KUBIAK MATH by LM


JOHN MCCLAIN'S CRAZY GARY KUBIAK MATH
Written By: LM

Twitter is one of those tools where if you say something so weird, you can always say "It was tongue and cheek".  In John McClain's case, I hope he will come out and say "I was playing" but I think he was  serious.

Sunday, after the Denver Broncos hired Gary Kubiak as their head coach, John McClain began tweeting.

Unless you have been living under a rock, there is no surprise in McClain's feelings towards Kubiak.  McClain speaks very favorable towards Kubiak and that's cool but he goes too far with the "Kubiak Love".

Below is a tweet from McClain in regards to Gary Kubiak.  As I glanced my Twitter Timeline, I noticed @zepp1978 questioning John McClain's math.  I was curious and opened one of the dumbest tweets of 2015

This is an example of a friend "reaching" in order to make a person better than what his actual record was.  If we use John McClain's math, we can make any coach or player look good.  What's next?  If we remove Wade Phillips last year in Dallas, he would be the best Cowboy coach?  

Clearly John is a respected media member and low information fans buy into his generic takes but not me.  How can I take our Beatwriter serious about the Texans when he tweets stuff like this?  

It's amazing in Houston, the media has no problem going after National Media Guys, players and coaches but they are mute on McClain's odd takes.  For what it's worth, Gary Kubiak's Texans record is 61-64, a very mediocre head coach at best.

TEXANS FANS HERE WE GO AGAIN - CRAIG SHELTON




TEXANS FANS HERE WE GO AGAIN
Craig Shelton
01.18.2015

Reflect back to January of 2014. C'mon, surely you remember folks? I'll help you out. That was back when Teddy Bridgewater was going to be the consensus#1 quarterback drafted, but then we all became expert "NFL Quaterback analyst."

Remember now?

Do you also recall then a few months of widespread,  expert analysis later, Teddy Bridgewater and Derrick Carr were drafted late 1st round and early 2nd round respectively, and both went on to have the most impressive rookie campaigns of the 2014 QB draft class?

Fast forward to the present "expert QB analysis period" of 2015, and everyone from fans to media, have revised their roles and are now bonafide Marcus Mariota doubters or experts of one-read-spread-offense college quarterbacks.

Really people? Really?

For clarification,  I do not believe the Texans will draft a QB unless they lose Ryan Mallet to free-agency.

If Mallet does walk, Colorado State's, 6-2 mobile QB Garrett Grayson or Oregon State's 6-5 strong armed, pocket passer, Sean Mannion, could be under considerations.

PUT ME ON THE RECORD:

I DO NOT like the Beavers' Sean Mansion, but NFL talent evaluators will like his size at 6-5 and big arm. They always do, right?

What ever you do with that 1st round pick Texans, just make sure in the 2nd round, you find a way to draft this guy -------->>>>  Terrance Smith, ILB/OLB, Florida State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 228.
Projected 40 Time: 4.60.

It must be January?

Blah...blah...blah!!!!
