SPECIAL PREVIEW - Straight Fire w/ Jason McIntyre - All Eyes on DC, the Texans are Wasting Deshaun Watson's Time & NBA Wednesday Headlines
2284
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.

3267
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.
