"watt Will Lead The Texans To The Playoffs"


Recommended Posts

That's a pretty significant statement from Mooch. It would take quite a bit more than Watt to bring them into the Playoff picture. Hoyer and/or Mallet would have to rise above the fray to achieve it, along with the type of year Watt had in 2014. And that's even somewhat of a stretch considering the other teams in the AFC racing for the post season.

Way too many question marks on the Texans offense. Their defense is stout but like so many years past their offense is unproven and their running attack is injury prone. Let's wait and see how their coach has put this all together for this season. Everyone here in Houston is painfully aware of the QB problem.

I don't think it'll happen.  Unless one plays an offensive position like QB or RB, I don't think you can lead your team to the playoffs.  QBs do it all the time and we saw Adrian Peterson lead his team to the playoffs a few years ago.  Other than that, I don't think anyone from any position can really lead their team to the playoffs.

He could, they almost made it last year.

 

If O'Brian can get Hoyer or Mallet to be even a marginal upgrade over Fitzpatrick then they have a pretty good shot.

 

It's not out of the realm of possibility. . . BUT that said I don't think it will happen.  Because honestly I think Fitzpatrick is a better QB then Hoyer.  And Mallet seems to have been unable to separate himself from Hoyer so it's not likely that he's all that good either.

I don't really think their defense is that special let alone their whole team.

He is a good player but he is not good enough to carry them from that position.

 

It's really not. Maybe Clowney changes that, but their defense isn't that good.

One of the best seasons of any individual player ever, and they still didn't make the playoffs.

True but they were very close and that was largely because of his play even with the horrific play they got at QB with three different starters.

 

What is your take on Bill O'Brien thus far?

Meh. No read on him so far. How his offense does with Hoyer will be a big factor for me. Mike Pettine was 6-3 with the guy, with no receivers.

Yeah, I feel the same way. I like what he is building there but he needs the QB. Hoyer can be pretty solid so we will see what Bill can get out of him.

WATT has done  all he can he has'nt led the texans to the playoffs , Only the Ravens had a defense that could take a mediocre team into & thru the playoffs The texans still have'nt won in Indy there playoff hopes are a bit premature .

 

The texans got to take the AFC South from the top dog & this is not your year I'll save a seat on the Colts bandwagon for those of you who want to witness the playoffs  ..

To be fair, Flacco did play really well in the playoffs the year they won the Superbowl.

Maybe the Texans should start rookies on the D-line and hope for the best.

The Texans won the AFC South 2 times 1 because Peyton Manning did'nt play that year & just barely in 2012 after 2 years of dominance once again by the Colts .

 

The AFC South has yet to play 1 game so how would the Texans be 2015 AFC South Champs ,  I'll spot 2011 & 2012 but thats all you get leave that up there all year for good LUCK hopefully you guys don't look like chumps again . :thmup:haha

Any gm would take luck over watt. A Great D lineman can't lead teams to the playoffs. Great qbs can

Don't be so sure. Watt is the best player in the game. He has help too, there's this misconception that he's all the Texans have on defense. You need a great defense to compete against top tier QBs in the playoffs. A defense that can force turnovers and score. Andy can only do so much.

Every gm would take a great qb over a great player at any other position

They certainly have talent if everyone stays healthy, They don't have a murders row type of schedule this year, They do play NE and the Colts but other then that:

 

Buffalo

Atlanta

Titans twice

Jags twice

Jets

Bengals

Dolphins

Panthers

Bucs

Patriots

Colts twice

Saints

Chiefs

 

(Not in that order)

 

 

Outside of NE and Colts (As long as they take care of the ball) I can see them going 10-6 or 11-5 if they just get solid QB play not great or spectacular

 

I don't think it will happens but that's why they play the games

For the love of god... It's the QB spot man. I don't care if you think Watt is better individually than Luck, Luck plays the most important position in the game and it's not even close.

 

Any knowledgable GM would rather take an elite QB over an elite defensive player at any spot, assuming they don't already have an elite QB. Then again, i know i'm talking to someone overrates their team.

    • Thanks for the feedback   I hear both your concerns and they are definitely valid. About Lance starting year 1 - the moment we draft a 1st round QB, getting him ready to start as soon as humanly possible becomes priority no.1 for our coaching staff(the offensive side at least). It's very possible even with that attention he might not get ready if we have another weird off-season, so I have accounted for that with bringing back Brissett. I think he's a very good backup who can start if Lance is not ready.   The LT question and whether he will be ready is another one to take into account. My thought process here is - create multiple avenues for filling that spot. For me those would be - 1. Nelson(try him... you never know and you lose nothing if it doesn't work ... just get him back inside if he can't handle the LT spot), 2. FA - I'm bringing Ty Nsekhe to compete for the spot. He's been solid in spot duties for the Bills and has the profile to do the job... and is still young... and 3. the draft - Taven Jenkins is one of the players that I think can be a long-term solution at the position. Again .... no idea if he will be ready, but he will be part of the competition for the spot.   My hope here is that at least one of them will step up and be reasonable starter. 
    • Lance would be far cheaper than the vets
    • I like it, but have some comments / questions   1) Are you counting on Eason to be the QB of the future in this mock offseason?   2) I love the JJ Watt Pick up, he is probably 75% of what he was a few years ago, but he could be very versatile and would improve this defense   3) Counting on a late 2nd round to start at OT day one is a bit dangerous in my opinion - FA?   4) Unless the guy is an amazing talent that slipped, I would probably NOT add a RB as early in the draft as you did. (I like our top 3 RBs as they are)  Mack is going to want much $$$$ that we dont have.   Thanks again  
    • If Rivers comes back you for sure need a QB for '22, probably a youngster.    If you trade for Stafford,  his replacement doesn't have to be addressed for a few years. This is why I think Ballard may go for Stafford. Wentz would also be in the equation but the Eagles probably fired Pederson for him to stay.
