promoting my books for sale primarily on this site. As a result, I
have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
For Houston: Part II.
Not A Rookie Anymore- This is not your old Texans. This is the new building Texans. The
rookie QB is now a 2nd year veteran. "Offensively, when they had
things rolling last year with Watson averaging 40 points a game," BB
said. "We obviously saw the explosiveness in our game last year. So
we have a lot to get ready for [him]." He has spent more than a year,
and two training camps, in the system.
With all due apologies to Hoyer, Watson was at a completely
different level than Hoyer was last year when he was a rookie. "I
think that every year's different and I think he realizes that. I think
that obviously whatever happened last year, it was basically a six-game
window into what he can do and that's what obviously teams have been
studying a lot of relative to us this year," Houston HC O’Brien.
"I think Deshaun works very hard. He is just not a guy that rests on
any kind of laurels. He's a guy that really works hard to get better every
day. He talks about that a lot. He wants to try to get one percent, two
percent better at something every single day.
"It's a different year and there's always going to be adversity
that you're going to have to deal with. Especially in this league, like I
just said in the previous answer, there's a lot of tough games, lot of
tough opponents and we'll deal with it as it comes." He was my top QB
in the 2017 Draft.
In seven games with six starts, he led the Texan offense to 39-PPG.
And he is now out of the tall grass! He threw 19-TDs, and rushed for two.
He only threw for 8 INTs (which could have been a more rookie-like 20-24
if he stayed healthy). He completed 62% of his passes.
He is one of the smartest QBs I ever saw in college, and a stone
cold winner. "He's a very talented player," BB said. "It's
team defense. It's not one guy that can stop him. We're going to have to
do a good job as a team. That's the way it always is when you play a good
quarterback." He stepped in as a rookie, and took control of the
Offense from Day One.
He only threw 15 passes in the Preseason, with 1 TD, and 1 INT. The
problem is that Houston has a better defense than the Pats. So the Pats
have to out score them. If Watson can lead this team to 40 points, the
Pats are going to have trouble scoring that many points against this
He showed he was a winner at Clemson. "It does, it does. He
started back in OTAs, he participated in much of what we did during the
offseason program," O'Brien said. "He was basically full-go
during the offseason program. And like I've said before, he has been
through it before.
"Unfortunately, he has been through it before at Clemson so he
had a really good idea, good grasp of how the rehab process would go. He's
a very mature guy, he's a very hard-working guy and he's been with us
since we started back on April 18." Last season he was a winner
against young QBs, but lost all three games against Veteran Winning QBs,
That is a good sign for the Pats. "Deshaun is in that regard,
very passionate about football. Loves to watch tape, loves to talk about
the game, come in early, stay late," O’Brien said. "Always has
good suggestions, ideas on game plans or certain things that maybe our
defense was doing in training camp, how can we take advantage of that,
this, that and the other whether it was a preseason game or against our
own defense. So he really loves the game and it shows every day." But
he is not a rookie anymore.
test is showing that he can win against NFL Veterans, and not just the
flotsam and jetsam of NFL QBs. "We'll just watch Houston," BB
said oddly. "I mean, if Watson's not in there, we'll watch Webb. I
mean, it's not just one guy. They have other guys that can do it. So, you
can watch two quarterbacks do it in their offense. That's probably as good
of a look as you're going to get." I’ll take Joe Webb starting over
Watson against the Pats any day, and I’m sure Belichick would as well.
one of the most unique QBs since Steve Young. "It's hard. There's not
many guys like that in the league. We had the same thing a couple of weeks
ago when we were talking about Cam Newton," BB said. "The same
thing: guys that are big, fast, athletic, can throw the ball all over the
field. There's only a couple of them in the league and so to have them on
your team would be unusual. You just do the best you can on that and try
to give the defense the best look as you can at what they do. Sometimes
that might be putting a receiver or somebody like that at quarterback, or
we've used offensive linemen at running back against big backs to simulate
that type of an athlete carrying the ball. If " I like that Cam
comparison as well.
He is a
true double threat, but he has more speed (like Young) than size and power
(like Cam). "You've got guys that are unique players that have
special skills then you can't replicate them. Neither can anybody else
except for the team that has that guy," BB said. "You just try
to do the best you can and take what you have and try to simulate it.
Maybe it's two or three guys. Maybe one guy simulates the speed, maybe
another guy simulates his passing skill, maybe it's not the same
guy." But, if he continues to run too much, he will continue to get
injured too much.
3rd Place For Offensive MVP- The Offense is changing again this year. But more so than
last year? With four of their top dudes from the past two seasons gone:
Dion, Amendola, Mitchell, and Cooks. And with Edelman out for September,
they are going to have to come up with new ways and new ideas for how to
use personnel. This is going to be McDaniel’s most important season as
an OC. The top two targets for Brady are mot going to be WRs.
We know Gronk is the man. But with Edelman out, James White become
the next best option in the passing game. "We have a lot of good
leaders on our team. I think it's a very deep group," BB said.
"So I think the leadership extends far beyond the guys that were
elected for that. James has done a great job for us. He's given us
tremendous on and off-the-field leadership," Like I foretold before
the second Preseason game, White has taken a big step up this past
It was so obvious in just a few days of practice. "That was a
big jump for him," BB said. "Obviously, he had a good player
playing ahead of him his rookie season. I think he was only active for two
games. As we've seen from a lot of players, there's great development and
jump from Year One to Year Two. It's pretty common." He was named a
Team Captain for this season.
He is great chipping on rushers on the edge, top five in the NFL.
"Again, he's done a great job for us both on and off the field. He's
one of our most dependable players," BB said. "Everybody has a
lot of confidence in him because he's earned it. He's earned that
confidence and trust from his teammates and his coaches by doing it on a
consistent basis. There's no real magic to that. It's just going out there
and being consistent and dependable. He's done a great job of it."
His ability to chip, and then get open in the flat, is a great weapon they
have not taken advantage of yet.
He also looked like he took a step up in the run game. "It
depends on what the player is asked to do, where he's coming from. James
carried the ball a lot at Wisconsin," BB said. "He was involved
some in the passing game. His development in the passing game has grown as
he's had more experience and more opportunities in it here. I think when
you look at it in that context, that's the explanation. Not that he
couldn't do it, he just has more experience and more opportunity to do
it." You have Brady and Gronk, but third on the Pats offensive MVP
list in White.
Don’t forget, White just signed a big three-year extension. So he
is going to be looking to justify that signing. White’s abilities to
run, catch, and block for Brady in pass pro make him, maybe even, the
third best offensive player when Edelman comes back. He should garner over
a 1,000-yards rushing and receiving this season.
The Pats are going to need
every bit of his talent this week. Especially chipping on Mercilus and
Watt. He made some great blocks in the 2nd Preseason game. We saw him
balance that out as a great weapon out of the backfield. He also lined up
in the Slot, and looked comfortable running patterns. When you add that in
with yards rushing, the Pats are going to need over a 100-yards from him
rushing and receiving for them to win.
