Cover Two Podcast: A couple of bad men

We know that Texans LB Connor Barwin is a bad man, but so bad that the Jaguars fired coach Jack Del Rio and then owner Wayne Weaver sold the team, all after Barwin recorded four sacks against two quarterbacks in a 20-13 Texans win in Jacksonville on Sunday?

That’s a real bad dude.

“It’s kind of crazy what’s happening there,” Barwin good-naturedly played along during the “Cover Two Podcast.”

Barwin — a nominee for Hardest-Working Man of Week 12 — also welcomed the added burden on the defense now that Houston has to continue its playoff push with third-string QB T.J. Yates.

“The adversity that we’ve faced has made this team closer,” Barwin said. “That’s how we want it. As a defensive player, that’s what you want. You want to feel like it’s on you to win the game.”

As for Yates, Barwin said: “He knows the system. As long as he cannot crash the car, he’s going to be all right.”

Barwin’s former Texans teammate, Ravens FB Vonta Leach, also joined the “Cover Two Podcast.” Leach said he loves clearing the path for Ray Rice but that the running back needs to touch the ball between 20 to 25 times per game, something that’s not consistently the case with Baltimore.

Leach also said he needs to get a new facemask after every game because of the physical contact he administers/endures. He also said he’s working on his second helmet of the season because of the damage his first one has sustained. Leach said the junked helmet will go on his trophy case.

Now that’s a bad man.
