    I know some people don't like Travis Johnson the player, but if you get a chance check out Travis Johnson the Radio Host. He is Really good IMO. REALLY good. He's a smart dude, has a good delivery, entertaining and I suspect a lot of guys here would agree with his takes.

    I think he is 10x better than Seth. My favorite thing he said today was saying Andre is like a Crane on a construction site. Large presrnce looming over everyone...doesn't make a lot of fuss and always there ready to work.


    But yeah...if you get a chance, check him out.

    I enjoyed listening to TJ, but he's not even close to Seth. But, I reckon everyone has different tastes.

    He's been on 1560 a couple of times and I thought he was great and funny, too!

    While not his brightest moment, c'mon? Really??

    The number 1 overall pick of the 2002 draft class disagrees with the bolded.

    One is still in the league and at least did something for us. The other was traded for a 6th round pick and then released a year later from them.

    Seth? You mean Mr. Giggles. Dude is a child on the radio 30% of the time.

    I wouldn't mind checking him out, but he's on SR610. That station left my presets a long time ago.

    Ya' know...I like Seth, but I just think TJ is better.

    Not knocking Seth, I just think TJ has been damn good so far.

    I think Carr sucked horribly and of course would've rather have had Peppers in hind sight but at least I can understand the pick PLUS he's still actually IN the NFL.

    Johnson, on the other hand, also sucked even more horribly. Did nothing as a pro and we could've taken Aaron Rodgers, Derrick Johnson, or any other of the bad asses that were available.

    IDK how anyone could think that Johnson wasn't a bigger bust than Carr but to each his own.

    Anyways, Johnson should not be calling ANYONE in the NFL a loser, he was one of the biggest losers who ever played for us.

    Honestly I think they'd be better apart or with another host there. They sound kind of amateurish to me. I like them both though...just not a fan of them together.

    I don't know the Tony Romo stuff, but TJ just said a little while ago that the texans screwed up by taking him over Aaron Rodgers.

    But you shouldn't blame TJ for the team picking him. I don't get that part.

    Well then I guess he just shouldn't be on the radio since it involves being critical. Guess the stationed disagreed with you.

    If all his arguments are as good as the Romo one, I'd imagine he's about as good at analyzing football as he was at playing it.

    Seth cracks me up all the time. Yeah, he's unpolished, but that's part of the appeal. He is not some pro radio dude, but a retired pro athlete that is not sure where the line in the sand is half the time. I expect him to get into some sort of FCC trouble at some point because of it.

    I really enjoy their show when I get a chance to hear it. I pretty much learn something every time I listen. And they talk football the majority of the time instead of pandering with 'guy talk' radio, which bores me to death.

    I have not heard TJ, yet, but based on your opinion I will definitely check him out. Thanks for the heads up.

    Seth Payne is very sharp, and fortunately for his listeners he can articulate what he knows which is a lot about a lot of different things that go beyond football. And he dishs it all out with an irreverent sense of humor. But his inside knowledge of the NFL is the real payoff.

    TJ was a six year starter. Both Okoye and Carr were worse, and to this point Mercilus. Probably Babin as well.

    Furthermore, TJ made 10 million in his career. Romo just got a $100 million contract for having the same number playoff wins as Matt Schaub. Let that sink in a minute.

    Regardless, it's irrelevant. You don't have to be a great player to have an opinion, or Joe Montana would be the only critic.

    To me Seth Payne sounds like your typical 610 radio host BUT Travis Johnson calls it like he sees it and just keeps it real. 610 was definitely missing that.

    Guess so. I don't listen to 610 anymore anyway, 790 all the way for me. Any station that employs Josh Innes obviously doesn't know what they're doing!


    And TJ was not a 6 year starter, might want to look up those starts there noxiousdog. He was a bust and is more of a loser than most NFL players, and certainly Romo.
