    That first vid is why I am okay with bringing back Lamar Miller. When Watson played we led the league in rushing per game as well.

    Hmmmmm.
    It seems that only 1 QB made top 5 in BOTH lists.
    Guy must be pretty decent!

    Crazy part is, if the protection improves this season... that number could rise even higher. :eek:

    Can't say Maller's opinion is crazy or unwarranted.

    Hopefully Watson proves him wrong.

    The guy has a point; especially if the OL isn't improved. DW isn't frail, but he isn't a big strong moose of a guy like Ben Rottenburger.

    Ben maller is a notorious Houston hata,since the day the rockets bench annihilated the souls of his clippers. He was obnoxious during the Astros vs Dodgers series.

    I'd be more concerned about Watson... but for...

    - he was as savvy as getting down as any "running" QB I've ever seen
    - I wouldn't describe him as a running QB, in the same way I wouldn't describe say Marcus Mariotta as a running QB. Or Russell Wilson as a running QB
    - The injury he did have last year had nothing to do with running. It was a random hit after a throw from the pocket that didn't even noticeably cause the injury until a few days later. As i understand it, people who tear one ACL are more likely to tear the other (assuming they're athletes), and if you're going to tear 2 acls, its much better sign that it's not a re-tear of the first tear... in other words, the surgery works, the ACL repairs itself well.
    - he's had an ACL tear before and come back very strong
    - this is 2018, not 1998. Can't hit anyone much anymore, much less QBs

    I'm still a bit concerned because:

    - he isn't huge like a Big Ben or even a Wilson (stocky)
    - he does run some
    - and most importantly, the Texans offensive line... like wtf? how do they have no plan there??
