SPECIAL PREVIEW - Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre - All Eyes on DC, the Texans are Wasting Deshaun Watson's Time & NBA Wednesday Headlines
2360
On today's episode, Jason opens things up with a quick thought on the group of rioters who breached the US Capitol building on Wednesday. Although we do make a concerted effort to stay out of politics on the show, when terrorists threaten our democracy, who won the game and whether or not your 3-team teaser hit just don't seem as important. Later, Jason does a deep dive into Deshaun Watson's cryptic tweet following the Houston Texans' decision to hire Nick Caserio as their new general manager. It's impossible to know for sure if Watson's 'some things never change' tweet was about the hire, but the timing definitely seems to fit. The decisions to hire Caserio (who wasn't on their search firm's list of preferred candidates) and not even interview Eric Bieniemy for their vacant head coaching job (who Watson has long-preferred) makes one thing very clear: the Texans don't give a damn what their franchise quarterback thinks. They're going to keep doing what they've always done, and they're going to continue to waste the best years of Watson's career in the process. The NFL would be better off if Watson would just force his way out of town; his time is far too valuable to be spent working for such a clueless franchise. Finally, Jason closes the show by sharing his thoughts on a few of the biggest headlines to come out of Wednesday night's action, including the first back-to-back appearance by Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard.

SPECIAL PREVIEW - Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre - The Sluggish Steelers, Westbrook to the Wizards & an interview with former Pro Bowl RB Clinton Portis
3015
On today's episode, Jason explains why the knee injury to Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree is a much bigger deal than you might think on the surface, why he's shocked at how much Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III has regressed as a passer since his rookie season in Washington, and why he's a tad concerned about the Steelers' sputtering offense. Jason also shares his thoughts on the Russell Westbrook-for-John Wall blockbuster trade in the NBA and tells us why he can't envision the deal working out well for either the Houston Rockets or the Washington Wizards. Later, former Pro Bowl running back and FOX Sports' Talk the Line co-host Clinton Portis swings by to explain why he feels the 2005 Washington Redskins were the closest team he's ever been a part of and why he was so disappointed to see them broken up the following season, how the unfortunate passing of his teammate Shawn Taylor helped cement his bond with Washington owner Daniel Snyder and why he thinks Snyder takes a lot of unwarranted criticism from fans and the media, why the daily competition on the legendary 2001 Miami Hurricanes is what made the team so special, why he emphatically disagrees with the notion that running backs aren't as valuable in today's NFL, why he begrudgingly calls former former Florida State and current Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook the best in the NFL right now, and much more!

Special Preview - Straight Fire with Jason McIntyre - Tua Time in Miami, The Untouchable Tyler Herro & NFL Week 3 Preview with John Middlekauff
3331
On today’s episode, Jason does a quick preview of tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars, and explains why if things go the way he thinks they’re going to go, we could see Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa under center sooner than later. If the Dolphins are serious about winning, it only makes sense to turn to Tua. As we’ve seen with guys like Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson, the blueprint is simple: Build around your star quarterback while he’s on his rookie contract. Later, Jason throws heavy praise on Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro after the sharpshooter dropped 37 points to put the Heat up 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals, and explain why he wouldn’t include Herro in any trade for Giannis Antetokounmpo this offseason. Plus, former NFL scout and host of the ‘3 & Out’ podcast John Middlekauff swings by to tell us why he thinks Monday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs is much bigger for the Ravens than it is for the Chiefs, discuss what improvements he’s seen from Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen thus far, explain why he sees little to be optimistic about if you’re a New York Jets fan, and much more!
