We debuted my new podcast, “Off the Turf with Scurf,” last week. Aside from a fair amount of grief that I got (and continue to get) about the name of the podcast, it was generally well-received, so my superiors didn’t pull the plug on it and we made it to a second episode.
It’ll be a weekly podcast, posted every Saturday morning. My first guest each week will be a Texans player. The interviews will be in-depth, and we’ll talk about not just football but about their backgrounds – what they do off the field, where they’re from, interesting things about them that you might not know. My second guest will be a wild card each week. It could be a Texans coach, a member of the media, someone in the Texans’ front office, a scout, the team photographer, maybe even a player’s old college coach or relative.
This week, Duane Brown talks about taking his game to another level this offseason, his offensive line coaches, offensive line chemistry, his fellow tackles Rashad Butler and Derek Newton, moving from tight end to tackle at Virginia Tech, his best 40-yard dash time and vertical jump, his basketball background, going to the same high school as NFL players such as Jamie and Darren Sharper, and his upcoming wedding to MTV host Devon “Devi Dev” Anjelica (he gets a little sappy talking about it).
Paul Kuharsky, who was in Houston last week for Texans OTAs, discusses how Arian Foster is now the premier player in the AFC South, how the Texans are the most talented team in the division by a considerable margin, what life in the AFC South will be like without Peyton Manning, why the Jaguars could end up being the second-best team in the division in 2012, the Titans, Andrew Luck and the Colts, and his favorite places to eat in the AFC South cities.
Thanks for listening. Link
