    They said that Savage is still their guy for now. I'm glad they mortgaged their future for him, but I do actually like Watson and worry he could be a solid guy for them and give us headaches.

    I have little confidence in Watson. Hope I am right...

    Im not excited by this one bit

    Houston has everything except a QB, all Watson will have to do is play game manager and let their defense get the ball setting up easy scores

    Thats standard protocol for most teams, let the vet start camp but give the rookie every chance to take the job

    its gonna be Watson week-1 or very soon after

    It depends on the situation, but I believe that if you plan on starting your 1st round QB early in the season you want him getting 1st team reps all of camp. It's pretty dumb IMO to have Savage take most of the 1st team reps if they plan on sticking Watson in there sooner than later.

    I'm glad we just said that Marcus is our guy, he's starting, rather than beating around the bush.

    If you genuinely want the guy to redshirt a year, that's fine. But don't half ass it and then end up starting him week 3 and he's unprepared (looking at you Rams).

    fair enough

    but a coach saying a vet will start over a rookie is pretty standard, it really means nothing at this point

    bet on Watson being their guy this year despite whatever the coaches mumble out...

    I agree that's probably what will happen, but damn Watson scares me. When I made my mock draft I did it basically as a worst case scenario of what scares me most.

    Had the Jags taking Fournette and Watson to the Texans. My nightmares have been realized. Add Hooker on top of that and I need a few drinks tonight.

    They still don't have a QB and don't have a 1st or 2nd round pick next season

    And they are about to have serious cap problems.

    Watt will never sniff a super bowl. And this pleases me.
