Unfortunately I have bad news. I will not be able to continue my radio show in Houston, but all you guys can follow me online at whatever radio station I will be on in my next city. You guys are the absolute best, especially the full-time radio guys who worshipped me! Remember: I'm on twitter, and I'll be on another radio station...so it's not the end of the world. I have to go update my blog, so I'll see you guys later...probably in about 10 minutes or so.*

I was thinking the exact same landing spot for Winston.

Winston being cut has no affect on our Tuesday shows. Will not be getting someone else to fill his spot. From what I've been told we were losing the Winston show anyway. It was a casualty of our new deal with the Texans. We were not going to have a Tuesday player show anyhow.

We better not have made this move in order to satisfy Mario's thirst for money. We've got a new good starter at OLB but we need some depth, we don't have starter quality depth at RT. Winston was very important to Fosters success in the run game but left alot to be desired in the passing game thus the reason many of us suggested moving him to OG. I guess Butler will be penciled in at RT but I think we'll be looking in FA and the draft as well.

If this is real, then I think the Texans are making it clear that distractions such as players having radio shows are a thing of the past.

Smithiak making it clear that fat will be trimmed, lives will be simplified across the board, and the only focus is to win a Super Bowl. Period.

Wow. This came out of left field. With Winston cut it absolutely means we have to resign Myers and Briesel. I can only imagine one other reason for doing so, and that's to sign Mario. I'd rather keep as much of our O-line intact than re-signing a defensive player we don't need though (even though he's a damn good one).

What are you talking about? The Texans like to have players on the airwaves and the tube. It's good exposure for the team. I'm pretty sure it's part of KILT's contract with the Texans to have a certain amount of time alloted during the week with the players and the coach. Winston's show was on his off day (Tuesday), anyway.

Seriously, you guys are reading too much into this. Keep it simple. Follow the money.

Deservedly so, he has been exposed over the last 2-3 years as a know-nothing hack when it comes to the NFL. His days of being an "insider" with the Oilers are long gone, and now he is literally a mouthpiece of misinformation for the Texans. He thinks he's got his finger on the pulse, but he's so in the dark it's laughable. And the fact he's so pompous and petulant about it makes it even worse. There is an actual inverse relationship with what John McClain says and what the truth is or what is going to happen. I can't help but think that behind closed doors, the front office (and even the players) piss themselves laughing at how bamboozled Pancakes is. It is just sad.

He should be. Usually guys who spend a significant time rehabbing from a sports injury come back in pretty good shape because they are generally forced by trainers to work on all core groups (especially if it's not a lower body injury). I've done it and came out in better physical shape because of it.

That's not to say, however, that Butler will be in football form, right now. But then again, by the time OTAs start most players aren't and they have to condition by getting in there and actually doing it. So, I suspect Butler will be fine going into training camp and come out ready to play ball.

I'm not saying he was axed purely because of his radio gig. I'm saying that whether he was cut or not, it looks like the Texans chose to NOT have a player be on that radio show anymore.

Connect this with how there's been criticism for Winston's full-on embrace of the radio show, Winston being cut, and it is possible that players are being sent a subtle signal that if you talk the talk, you better damn sure walk the walk.

He wasn't cut because of his radio gig. He was cut for dollar reasons, but I think with the exit of Winston also comes the curtain falling upon the temptation of any Texans player to risk getting their hopes up for local stardom and fanfare on the air waves.

If I'm a Texans player watching all this go down, I'm thinking twice about penciling in ANY commitments unless it's necessary from a Texans P.R. standpoint. Again, just thinking out loud on this (I tend to do that).

Pollard did a lot of radio also .

The 49ers of the 80's would pay you well but once you didn't earn it anymore , you were cut or traded .
