Tom Savage's agent ended up speaking out loud about why Savage got benched he couldn't figure it out. I mean I didn't watch most of the game but still to go out to the media on short week, other teams may not want to work with this agent as much anymore.

Having seen a bit of the game it made perfect sense.  The Texans O-line was getting torn to shreds and, although there was little they could do about the line in terms of personnel, Watson is a more mobile quarterback and so would have a better chance to move out of the way of danger if needed (and it was needed a lot).

 

The fact Calais Campbell got 3.5 sacks in the first half tells you all you need to know about why a change was needed.

Because they had a first round draft pick QB on the bench and where never sold on Savage in the first place.  

 

I guess, but then why did they start Savage in the first place if they weren't sold on him?

They where pretty 50/50 about who to start and most coaches these days have some idea in their heads that it would be good to let their 1st round draft pick QB sit for at least a year to learn.  So they started the vet.   

 

The problem is that doesn't realistically happen a lot.  Teams pick QB's in the first round usually because they need one.  The only 1st rounder this year that I see sitting the entire length of the season is Pat Mahomes.  

 

Trubinski may make it through the season without starting a game too. . . Glennon didn't look half bad against Atlanta.  But if he starts screwing up or the Bears look out of contention there will be a ton of pressure to start the rookie, if for nothing else to try to create some excitement for next season.

Can't believe people like Savage so much when they ripped on Brock all last year. lmao And now he's getting outplayed by Watson through sheer athleticism, even funnier! :lol: Brock was bad too, but he couldn't get the benefit of the doubt from many people for some reason...People wanted to see him fail since he won games in Denver, though Elway was 100% correct when he said they don't win that SB in 2015 without Brock to win a few games for them. 

 

The coach is the problem in Houston and always was...He's went through quarterbacks like a pair of socks - Hoyer, Weeden, Brock, and now Savage and Watson...He still hasn't hit on a QB and yet he gets none of the blame for some reason.

    • I'm somewhere in between A and C, but not B.  They've spent allot of money and have had some great players, so not making a second World Series (not even winning it) should have been pretty good odds.  But it is not easy in baseball to get there.  Although their exit being in the wild card game 2 of the past 3 years is bad.   In 2018 against the Rockies their bats went silent as they lost 2-1.    
    • I must be reading different things.....     Oh well.... it will all come out in the end   If we end up with him at our 2nd and we get Paye....  Im a happy camper
    • I would absolutely have loved to join, but with planting season here I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
    • All Colts fans will go into a lottery, and will select their preferred team based on the lottery outcome. I'll send a private, ordered list of posters/GMs to @chad72 and one other poster. @NFLfan, who will not have the list, will use a random number generator (like the link below). He will publish his random list, and Chad will publish his. The list will be mashed up, and result in the GM order (who will then pick their teams).   Example: List provided to Chad   EastStreat Chad 72 Danlhart87 Nickster MPStack ......   NLFfan uses a random generator for range of 1-X (in the case above, 5) and comes up with  4 1 5 3 2   The two will be paired, and the result would be   1. Chad72 2. MPStack 3. Nickster 4. EastStreat 5. Danlhart87   So Chad would choose first (likely the Colts), followed by MPStack and so on...    I know it sounds complicated, but it's extremely easy, and fair.   For fans of an opposing team, they'll get their team assuming they want their team, and there are no other opposing fans that want them too (Joe get Pitt for example, If NFLfan were playing, he'd get MN).
    • Cosmi has always been further back in the tackle ratings by the experts.  Not a 1st rounder in most eyes.  When you look at overall player rankings he winds up in the 2nd. Rd.
