The last 18 months have been obscene. Blowing a 24 point lead, trading DeAndre Hopkins, adding only Eric Murray and Ross Blacklock to a bottom pass defense, starting 0-4 and immolating the Bill O’Brien era, watching Deshaun Watson’s teammates actively sabotage him, Watson’s trade request after the Nick Caserio hire, another draft without a first or second round pick, and a summer of malaise

The good news is that football has started again, and all of that in the past is down the drain. What matters, the only thing that matters, is right here right now, and right now, the Texans are 1-0 after hunting down the Jaguars in a 37-21 win.

On this episode of Battle Red Radio Matt Weston and Diehard Chris review the win over Jacksonville. Topics include TYGOD Taylor, embracing the present, how Houston’s run blocking fared, the top rope diving Brandin Cooks, what to make of Lovie Smith’s defense, turnovers regressing to the mean in a single game, the Bradley Roby trade, Urban Meyer racing to the EKG machine, and David Johnson pickling beets and peaches upstate.

Let’s start the show.
