    Bill O’Brien: Clemson’s sophisticated offense helped Deshaun Watson

    NFL coaches often say that college football offenses don’t really get quarterbacks ready to play at the next level. But Texans coach Bill O’Brien says that’s not the case with his rookie quarterback, Deshaun Watson. O’Brien says Watson ran an offense at Clemson that forced him to develop a mind for football at the highest…

    Much like Colin Kaepernick, the Beaumont Bulls paid a price for their protest. But unlike the unemployed-for-no-valid-reason quarterback, the Bulls are getting some NFL backing and are back on the field.

    Deshaun Watson calls his work ethic a lifestyle

    The Texans drafted former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson in the hopes that he’d be the same kind of leader in the NFL that he was in college, where he led his team to a national championship. The early returns are very, very positive on that front. John McClain, the longtime NFL reporter who covers the…

    It took awhile, but Whitney Mercilus has figured out how to get to the quarterback: Any way possible. Mercilus made 18 sacks his first three seasons combined. Not bad, but not what the Texans expected after making him a first-round choice in 2012. In his past 25 games, though, Mercilus has 19.5 sacks using a…

    Well, we’ve made it through another week without NFL football. Let’s take a look at what’s happened in Texans-land and elsewhere. Despite another week without the Texans in pads on our televisions, we’ve had a lot to chew over the past several days. Over the past seven days, we learned that Kareem Jackson may help our safety issue. We’ve discussed who might cover for Derek Newton, who finally became a starter we could count on only to go down with injury. We’ve bet on Deshaun Watson’s number of starts and heard the man himself speak about paying dues. We’ve seen that Bil…

    The Texans’ cornerback continues to deny the ravages of age. One of the more recently maligned posts in BRB history is Weston’s premature funeral for Johnathan Joseph in September of 2015. J-Jo was coming off two, maybe three depending how you felt about his performance against the Buccaneers, games in which he didn’t look much like the best free agent signing the Texans ever had.Joseph righted the ship, however, and has continued to play quite well despite the fact that he’s now 33 years old. You might believe his advanced age (by cornerback standards) would open him up to ge…

    If you have something nice to say, you should probably say it. Offseason workouts are over. Done. That’s it. Now the players head home to do whatever they want until training camp starts up next month. After spending time with rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, Bill O’Brien had some kind words to say about the young man. “He had to learn a pretty sophisticated offense at Clemson. He had to do a lot of things at the line of scrimmage. I think he was trained really well. That's a credit to the Clemson staff.He'd already been in some big games when he got here.

    This Brian Cushing Stat Might Surprise Texans Fans

    Perhaps the Texans’ linebacker isn’t as bad at this as some fans think. Pundits and fans alike have applauded the Texans’ decision to draft Zach Cunningham in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and one of the reasons most frequently given for the rave reviews is the idea that Cunningham will be able to provide pass coverage at linebacker that the Texans have lacked in recent years. Benardrick McKinney, as good as he is, was exposed at times in the passing game last year when he was forced into covering tight ends and running backs especially against the Patriots. Brian Cush…

    Do Texans fans think their head coach is getting short shrift in these power rankings? As Bill O’Brien approaches his fourth season as head coach of your Houston Texans, there appear to be two dominant schools of thought when it comes to O’Brien’s performance. The first such school is that the man has presided over three straight winning seasons, brought home two division titles, and won a playoff game, all without a quarterback that resembles a stable, long-term solution. The other camp focuses on the idea that O’Brien, a man who was trumpeted as a great offensive mind when…

Generally speaking, making such a big purchase so quickly after getting drafted is not a smart idea. But in this case, we can make an exception for Watson. His mom certainly made a lot of sacrifices as he worked his way to the NFL. So, the new Jaguar is a well-deserved prize.
