The Eric Winston Show and the Pro Bowl

Eric Winston plays right tackle for the Houston Texans.  That is not the stuff that sounds like it would make for very interesting radio.  I mean, how about a running back or a linebacker or Dunta Robinson.  I thought, can’t y’all spice it up a little bit for the radio listeners.  That was my attitude when I learned that Eric Winston would be the player manning the spot for SportsRadio 610′s player show.  To top it off the freakin’ guy went to Miami.  I mean bring Steve McKinney home from Seattle to take on the show. 

To my great surprise, Winston is very well spoken, interesting, and insightful.  Winston is also getting some play for a possible Pro Bowl spot.  Winston had a particularly good game against the Packers.  Winston is in his 3rd year with the Texans and stands about 6-5 and weighs nearly 300 pounds. 

If Pro Bowl voters like Winston as much as I like his radio show, he’ll be in Hawaii this year.  Winston’s show can be heard on SportsRadio 610 from 5-6 every Tuesday afternoon.

    Not only did he go to Miami but he was committed to Texas A&M and switched at the last minute. Therefore, would I vote for him to go to the pro Bowl? NEXT!

    Winston is probably our best offensive lineman and is a great role model to represent the franchise. I have heard him several times and he sounds well-spoken, even though many have described his looks as neandarthal.

    Even though it was disheartening to hear he went to Miami after growing up in West Texas, the guy is still a Texan at heart.  I am glad to see the Texans locked him up before the season started last year.  I am hoping Duane Brown makes similar progress next year so the team can say they have a set of true bookend tackles for  the first time in team history.
