The Houston Texans, HBO Sports and NFL Films are teaming up for an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE HOUSTON TEXANS debuts in August. The first sports-based reality series – and one of the fastest-turnaround programs on TV – kicks off its five-episode tenth season this summer. Texans Owner Bob McNair and General Manger Rick Smith talk about the team's decision to bare it all and share the behind the scenes stories from camp with the entire nation. NFL Films Supervising Producer Ken Rodgers and Director Matt Dissinger discuss how the show is produced, why they selected the Texans and their goal for the show. Later in the show we talk with some of the players about the first day of OTA's and their thoughts about being on HARD KNOCKS. Louis Nix is back on the field for the first time, Brian Hoyer is making his Texans' OTA debut and Duane Brown is gearing up for a season with more changes on the offensive line. The NBA Finals are set after the Houston Rockets fell to the Golden State Warriors in game five of the Western Conference Finals 104-90. Steph Curry and the Warriors will take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. We'll talk about last night's Rockets loss; what this team needs to do to take the next step more. There are a lot of headlines topping the sports world this week including the drama surrounding FIFA. It's all up for discussion on this week's show.
I'm joined by Red94.net's (of ESPN's TrueHoopNetwork) Rahat Huq as we dive into the Rocket's off-season. We talk the impact of losing Josh Smith, the dominance of James Harden, the health of Dwight Howard, the fit of Ty Lawson, the importance of Clint Capela, the coaching of Kevin Mchale, and where he sees the Rox finishing this year. Can this team win it all?
As the Houston Texans head into the final stretch of this regular season, nothing short of an AFC-South Championship guarantees them a spot in the playoffs. We’ll break down their opportunities and challenges as we look at their remaining schedule.
The Houston Rockets continue to be a roller coaster team looking for a way to get their team on the right track. Who are the Rockets and what is their identity? Is Dwight Howard really on the trading block?
The Astros are making moves to improve on the team’s turnaround season of success. What else can we expect from this Astros team before spring training in a few months? We’ll look at the moves they’ve made and the possible moves still on the table.
And finally, the bowl season is upon us. Are there too many bowl games? What bowl games are you looking forward to? Speaking of college football, what’s the latest at Missouri?
All of this and more on today's show!
We are 75 days away from the Final Four weekend in Houston. This week, some of the NCAA Basketball representatives were in Houston to tout the upcoming annual event and what it means for Houston and Houstonians beyond the court. Doug Hall is the President and CEO of the local committee and joins us live to talk about all things Final Four Houston. You'll also hear from the NCAA's VP of Championships Dan Gavitt. March Madness is right around the corner and we want to make sure you're "Chalk Talk" ready!
The Houston teams have a lot of decisons to make. The Texans need some offensive help. The Rockets need help in general... and the Astros are looking to take the step toward a World Series season as spring training nears.
The AFC & NFC Championship games are set. We'll have a preview and live interview with one of our NFL experts! It's the time of year where there is a lot of movement around the NFL. Who's going where and what's next on the schedule? Check in for an update on this week's show.
And the Houston Rockets are still playing their Dr. Jekyl - Mr. Hyde role. Tune in to hear from head coach J. B. Bickerstaff after their most recent game with the Pistons. How 'bout that game Dwight Howard put together in the team's overtime loss to the Clippers? 36 points, 26 rebounds.... throw in four assists a steal and one block and you've got one heck of a game. The last time a Rocket put up those kind of numbers was 1990 when Hakeem Olajuwon had 35 and 27 vs Detroit. And only five other NBA players have put up those kind of numbers since 1990. Wow... now that's big.
It's a fun hour of sports you don't want to miss!
The Houston Texans have just about wrapped up the AFC-South Division Title. There are several scenarios that give the Texans the title, however the easiest way to guarantee the title and a trip to the playoffs is by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars at NRG Stadium on Sunday. Head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed that Brian Hoyer sucessfully completed the concussion protocal and will start for the Texans on Sunday. O'Brien also talks about the challenges the Jaguars present.
Veteran Defensive Back Jonathan Joseph is one of the cornerstones of this Texans defense. At one point considered washed up by many in the local media, Joseph is having a solid and productive season. He talks about this Texans defense and his play. Offensive Tackle Duane Brown is another veteran who has been through the ups and downs of the Texans recent seasons. He talks about having the opportunity to win the division after they way they started.
