For instance, they both believe some of the players have lost faith & confidence in their coach/qb, but they clearly say it's their supposition, no one has told them as much.
I understand that, but most other radio hosts on houston sports radio seem to go 1 of 3 ways. They either:
Are straight up homers or try to steer clear of overtly calling a spade a spade - Lopez, Vandemeer, Lord....
They try too hard to be "critical" so as not to appear like they're homers - Innes, Nick Wright, LZ &
Clanton...(have never liked this dude)
Or they try too hard trying to get laughs & entertain you with all kinds of other crap...LZ, Clanton mostly but Innes, Payne & Meltzer do that alot too.
When i listen to Cooke & Kalu, i feel like i'm just sitting at a bar talking shop with 2 guys who know & love the game....They're genuinely themselves on the radio. The fact that they played on the NFL level is an added bonus.....you get less BS like "SEC guy" or "celebrity birthdays". Apart from that, they look at things largely the same way i do in regards to the Texans & the NFL in general..i find myself agreeing with them alot.
