Michael Sam being gay may not be the reason NFL coaches don’t want him on their teams.
Isn't it fun living in the city with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft? Seriously, I think sometimes the fervor surrounding the speculation on who the Texans will take is part of the punishment of going 2-14, like a residual aftershock. We are only a few weeks into the NFL Draft process (comb ... More >>
The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine ends today, but for all intents and purposes (Texans related, at least), it ended on Monday. Four whirlwind days going back to last Friday, and when all was said and done, ostensibly very little seemed to resolve itself (although behind closed doors, who the hell knows ... More >>
This Saturday at Rice Stadium, SportsRadio 610 is conducting our first ever NFL style combine. The event runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the plan right now is for all of the hosts and many of you listeners to participate in most of the various events (sorry, no bench press, meatheads) that the NFL r ...

At around 7:00 p.m. Sunday night, Missouri senior defensive end Michael Sam announced to the world on ESPN what he had announced to his teammates prior to the 2013 football season -- he is gay.

It all started with a safety on a snap over Peyton Manning's head on the first play from scrimmage, the nail was driven in further by a Malcolm Smith pick six to close out the first half, and Percy Harvin hit the death blow with the kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half. Game, set, ... More >>
I listen to a lot of sports talk radio. I listen to as much of the various hosts as possible across the five different stations that offer all-sports formats -- yes, five, it's insane. There are some shows and on-air talent I like better than others. We're all like that I would guess. For me, I tend ... More >>
Overall, it's turned into kind of a slow sports week, which I guess is to expected as we are in the dreaded "post NFL combine, pre March Madness dead period." Add in the fact that the Rockets have seemingly been on a second All-Star break this week (haven't played since Saturday), and on a lazy Thur ... More >>
Last Sunday, a strange thing happened. I woke up, did some reading, worked on a few stories, talked to some friends on the telephone for a while, went to the gym, made dinner and got back into bed, thinking, "Not a bad day." And then I realized it: I hadn't watched football. Hadn't even thought to. ... More >>
"I think that Dez has a chance to make the kind of impact of people that have worn this jersey before." -- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in 2010 after bestowing the #88 jersey on wide receiver Dez Bryant Cocaine possession. Drug paraphernalia. Various mysterious brushes with assault charges through th ... More >>
A week or so ago, you may remember, I wrote a post about the auction for Bobby Petrino's crash-damaged motorcycle. The majority of the post was an outline of my idea to turn the crumpled-up love machine into a profit center by selling photo opportunities for fans to pose on the bike. At the end o ... More >>
The only proper usage of Tebowing.Vince Young was not who Jeff Fisher wanted to draft in 2006. His choice for the future quarterback of the Tennessee Titans was Jay Cutler.
