Wednesday on The Killer B's, the guys react to the latest comments from Texans CEO Cal McNair regarding his expectations for the Houston Texans this season. Just when things were settling down after the Deshaun Watson trade, McNair mentions the Texans being in contention for the playoffs as soon as this year.

We're all for having a positive outlook, and the vibes have been good recently after Nick Caserio did a great job securing a tremendous haul for Watson, but playoffs? In the loaded AFC?

Maybe just talk about being happy with the direction of the team, and leave it at that. We get that he wants to say positive things about the Texans, but talking about making a playoff run this season makes him seem as out of touch as we know he truly is. Just sit back and let Caserio do his job, and I'm guessing Nick's not too excited about playoffs being mentioned as a possibility this year. Nick knows better than anyone how much work needs to be done before this roster is ready to compete.

But if the draft goes well, who knows what could happen in 2023 and beyond. Slow your roll for now, Cal.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
