And we can thank Detroit for picking Charles Rogers ahead of AJ . We dodged a bullet there

The only one of those he gets any credit for is OD.

Making waves now because he called Tony Romo a loser. He's one to talk, biggest bust of a draft pick in our history and that's saying a lot. He needs to check himself before he goes around calling anyone a loser.
I actually talks about how big of a bust he was and how the texans should have picked other guys first. Its pretty funny

I was irritated when Sports 790 changed their line up to include Jay Mohr in the mid day slot. I hate national radio. We are big enough to have all local radio.

I don't like 610, but I guess I'll start listening since we have some crap national program in the midday.

790 just blew up their entire lineup (which I liked) and
it is an absolute mess now..

I'm listening to 610 just to avoid Mohr. Perhaps the
station actually needs to hire a survey group and
do an impact study before such drastic changes are made.

I can't believe someone credible would have actually told
them this was a good move..

I won't listen to Mohr, and while Lance is pretty much tied with Pallilo for my absolute favorite local talk show guy, pairing him with Adam Clanton has me seriously considering switching to Mike and Mike. Clanton sucks.

I can't stand the 610 homers in the morning and afternoon, but I highly recommend the mid-day show with Mike Meltser and Seth Payne. Meltser isn't a homer, and Payne brings a veteran's perspective.

Maybe give it a shot one day.

yeah pallilo is still my favorite. and of course they cut him down to like 3 hours. And when I'm driving home, Matt Thomas is still on the air which I could take or leave.

I haven't heard Clanton enough, but the LZ and Pallilo combination was the best radio I've heard. Wish they'd bring that back because it was all serious sports talk.

Thanks for the rec. I'll give it a shot. I've liked Meltser on the post game coverage in the pre-season.

Default Re: Travis Johnson on sports radio 610

lz & charlie were good, and matt thomas was in a better time slot.

clanton is too much more of an entertainer than a sports wonk, and
lance is a little of both.

that's why lance and charlie worked, while lance and clanton don't.
(charlie was the wonk, lance was the entertainment)

the new show is almost "too much fluff" -- all bone, no meat..

The Texans' 2006 Draft, Casserly's last, was definitely his best.

The only pick Casserly made in that draft was Owen Daniels. Actually he didn't make the pick, he convinced Kubiak to take Daniels but might as well give Casserly credit.

given how all of kubiak's tightends look like clones, i'm not sure i'd even give him daniels unless it was said that kubiak didnt want him.

Kubiak was interviewed and was asked about how happy he was with the OD pick - this was after a few games had been played.. He said they were going to go another direction but Casserly was insistent they should take OD. He then finished with something like "I am sure glad I let him convince me on that one." I think the anecdote confirms pretty clearly the power structure that day.

Default Re: Travis Johnson on sports radio 610

i stand corrected, and figured there was actual evidence for you to give casserly a good pick lol. i still want to just say kubiak was throwing casserly a bone, but a blind squirrel comes to mind.

doubt i could ever forgive the guy for travis johnson of derrick johnson, carr over peppers, the babin trade, or so many other atrocities. how casserly made it as long in the league as he did is an absolute mystery ... and a testament to rookies kubiak and smith when you look at what veterans casserly and capers built in 5 years compared to their financially hindered 52 man overhaul in that same amount of time.
