Houston is gonna win afc south - will win Superbowl soon

Recommended Posts

Watson is playing like a rookie, and it's working for him. Watch how many of his TDs are actually just throwing it up there and letting his guy make a play. He's got good receivers, so it tends to work so far. He also makes baffling choices that will never work in the NFL. 

 

I don't mean to say that he isnt helping them win games. He is. I'm just impressed with the way the coaches are just thinking 'screw it; let him play'. Kind of wish they'd let Marcus play like that and not worry quite so much about turnovers.

He's playing well, but they are playing a condensed offense for sure. He still doesn't have great arm strength. Bill Obrien should be giving OCOY to do what he has done with Watson thus far.

Yeah, he's playing to the kid's strengths. I'm surprised defenses haven't figured it out yet, but whatever. We didn't figure it out, and our DC is 80. So....

Steel Panther reference?  If so, pretty awesome.  

Well it was really just a "go get double-fucked" reference for the OP. I looked up Steel Panther though. I thought I was looking at some obscure 80's hair metal band until I saw the release date on one of their albums. lol

To be fair, offensively, they are doing some of the same things the Chiefs are doing with veteran Alex Smith.

I’m laughing at the excuses some are making. Texans hit on a taller Russell Wilson. Doesn’t hurt that he gets advice from Warren Moon.  Titans are in trouble for future.

You guys know that more of these flashing rookie qbs end up failing than not right?  I'm not saying I don't think he will be good or potentially even great but don't you think history shows we should wait until year 2 or 3 before sucking him and the Texans organization off?

 

I think the only poster on here to ever truely predict a great rookie qb even before he was named started was myself with Russell Wilson.  I feel like everyone's just desperately grasping at these young qbs trying to achieve my level of prognostication.

You already know what it is...

He's overrated. The scheme is hiding him. All of the misdirection and QB draw plays are leaving a ton of 1-1 coverage down field. Every time he is forced to stay in the pocket with any pressure he makes a bad pass.

I sure as heck hope so.  It's hard to say anyone is overrated though when they're putting up the kind of numbers that he is, regardless of scheme and matchups.

 

If Mariota was doing this the board would need to be shut down due to traffic.
