I watched it last night, just for the sake of watching it. I honestly don't care for Bob Allen's football insight. I have the DVR set to record the "Inside the Game" series that comes on Sunday nights after the game, but I don't care for him or Spencer. They both like to hear themselves talk way too much and doodle on the screen.

Boob Allen is the worst reporter in town for good reason.

Agreed! I ended up muting them the last game or two. I tried syncing the radio and tv. It worked well enough to leave them on mute. Imo, Tillman's the worst. Bob has a hard time talking without screwing up what he's trying to say....which would be dorky anyways

To each his own! Spencer Tillmen is one of my fav. He explains things in detail, and he's HONEST about the Texans play. Doesn't make a lot of excuses for them, just tells it like it is! I never miss "Inside the Game."

I like Spencer but can't really stand Bob Allen! When things aren't going good he hates our team then when they r good he acts like he has been a diehard fan! I cant stand wishy washy people! Take a stand! Say what you mean and mean what u say! I do watch the show but I say some bad things to the tv when Bob is being a butt! Lol

I like Tillman, too. He's very knowledgeable of the game and uses his own experiences on with a championship franchise to enlighten watchers about issues with the Texans. "Inside the Game" is set on my DVR, as well.

I've been away from the Houston viewing market for 14 years now. Does Tillman still say "fair enough, fair enough" to almost every comment? That used to give me a rash.

This. I can't stand the guy. But Houston sports media only likes to cover fluff stories these days, so I'm not a big fan of any of these guys.

Sirius 88 is where it's at! Adam Schein is annoying, but Pat Kirwan rocks

Tillman is a walking conundrum.

You know the guy at the party that uses big words. But doesn't know what they mean.

I just got a chill, and a flash, that my "dream" just turned into a nightmare! PLEASE be kidding!!! I feel sorry for the kid. The first time he gets burned the fans will crucify him!! Bench him and let him learn from J.Jo. He needs some pine time, IMHO!

Context context context.

We are one week into training camp. K. Jack was the starter last year. It stands to reason he still is until someone beats him out. I expect that to happen or the light may just go off in his head. Who knows at this point?

Spencer is okay, imo ... Abramowitz is a tool.

That's ridiculus.

Allen is an analyist. When the Texans screw up, he slams them. When he does well, he praises them. That's how a lot of fans are as well. It's called critical thinking. You are saying we should either praise the team no matter what they do, or slam them no matter what they do. It's not that simple. Every team will do some good things, and every team will do some boneheaded things. Each should be pointed out as such.

I'm more of a Mark Berman fan (from the fox news in Houston) for newsy sports guy, but Allen isn't that bad.

I swear to god though Channel 13's coverage of preseason games needs a major overhaul.

You know the guy at the party that uses big words. But doesn't know what they mean.

Tillman has been one of the few local media analysts that has been very critical of Kubiak, Smith, and McNair. Some of his criticism has been so harsh that it surprised me to see on a show sponsored by the Texans. IMO, he calls it like he sees it without kissing butt like Vandy does, and he has always seemed knowledgeable every time that I've watched him.

As always, though, to each his own. :howdy:
