Mike is joined by Alex Middleton of Sportstalk 790 to discuss the win over the Raiders & the match up with the Giants.
In the first winning edition of Luv Ya Steel Blue since just one week away from a full calendar year, Mike is joined by Jayson Braddock of Sportstalk 790 to talk about the Texans snapping their 14 game losing streak, Jadeveon Clowney snapping his meniscus and JJ Watt snapping necks.
A brief preview of their upcoming matchup with the Raiders and what needs to be done for the Texans to start off 2-0 in 2014 is also discussed.
Luv Ya Steel Blue is back from hiatus and ready to go back to weekly shows every Tuesday before a Texans game. Mike is joined by former LYSB co-host Pat Starr of State of the Texans to discuss where the Texans offensive line stands, if their secondary is as bad as some think and why Derek Newton is better at football than Mike.
For a look from an outsiders perspective, Mike dials up Anthony Brown of Redskins Hog Heaven to preview the opening week match up vs the Redskins, what he thinks of the Watt & Clowney combo and if he thinks the club should change their name or not.
To skip ahead, the Pat Starr Segment starts at 7:21 & Anthony Brown at 1:05:00
With all of the major moves in the 2014 free agency period in the books, the Rockets are left looking at Trevor Ariza, a thinning bench and no Chandler Parsons. But are things as bleak as that sounds? Mike, The Doctor & BD are here to discuss and, as usual, their opinions vary.
Also touched upon are where the team goes from here, if anything should be read into the success of the Summer league team and if any of the former players returning are anything more than just camp bodies.
All of this plus a quick spin Around the Association as Red Nation Radio closes it's final show (barring any major trade) until October.
It's a new season for Red Nation Radio and Houston's own Big Three return to discuss what might happen on Draft night, if the Rockets are about to get a big time upgrade to the coaching staff and if Daryl Morey can realistically make this summer even more exciting than last year.
After two gut-wrenching losses on their home floor, the Rockets are on the brink of kissing the 2013-14 campaign goodbye a lot earlier than even the biggest skeptic expected.
Mike, AK & Brandon try to decipher exactly what has went wrong, if their is a way to fix it and if coach McHale is to blame if the Rockets end up getting dusted in a four game sweep.
This, plus the dominance of Lamarcus Aldridge, the disappearing act of James Harden and the earliest of offseason wishlists that each feel could put this team over the hump next season.
The 2014 NFL Draft preview show continues with an expanded episode of over two hours of prospect evaluation and touching on how Bill O'Brien and Romeo Crennel will incorporate some of the possibilities into the new Texans schemes.
Joining me this episode is the Draft master Shane P. Hallam from DraftTV.com as well as Draft enthusiast, and local legend, Big Ron.
The episode is a tad long winded, but none of this is filler. It's a can't miss episode for any Draft addict looking for a holdover until May 8th.
A new season of Luv Ya Steel Blue is upon us and many changes to the format have taken place. I'll touch more on that later, but for the 2014 season premiere, the fifth season in the show's existence, we're going to kick things off by talking Texans draft with maybe the smartest draft guy in Houston; Jayson Braddock.
Mike opens the show with his brief thoughts on what Houston should do with this draft before giving the floor to Jayson to dive into his thoughts on what should happen at number one overall, if the pick should be traded and each and every possible quarterback prospect that could be on the Texans radar.
There is some brief talk on safeties, nose tackles and offensive lineman to finish us off before Jayson calls his shot who will be the Texans quarterback of the future.
After a brief hiatus, the terrible trio is back to discuss the Rockets continued hot play, their chances in the final seeding and what the ceiling is for this year's team. Also, the multitude of man crush labels being handed out takes center stage when discussing if James Harden is a top 5 player in the league and if he will ever have a shot at being league MVP before his career is over.
The great Melodrama takes over the end of the show as all three have varying opinions on if the team should go after Carmelo Anthony this offseason or just round out the roster and let them grow.
After a week off due to fatigue from staying up way too late during the Rockets west coast swing, the team stayed hot as they knocked off the defending world champions at home and continued their dominance of the league in the 2014 calendar year.
Mike, Armin & BD cover the tough upcoming schedule, the slow, sad decline of Jeremy Lin, the ascending of Patrick Beverley into the new Junkyard Dog and if Dwight Howard is man or machine.
The show is ended with the silly Carmelo Anthony rumors brought forth by Grantland and if it would or would not work for this version of the Rockets and if it even needs to.
