Eberflus interviewing with Houston


Recommended Posts

That has no bearing on whether he wants him to coach him

 

   

Didn’t say it did,  I was responding to someone who challenged Chloe on how she knew Watson respected Eberflus.  We know it because he’s said it and acted like it.

Texans' front office:  

Hes there to get Intel on Watson   

During an off-season where people are screaming about how bad the interview process is being handled by teams over-looking African-Americans....   Houston now pours gasoline on the fire by interviewin

Here is a real world example

   Because of my upbringing there are many people that I show “respect” to that I do not like or agree with

Well rather than trying to read into something just to argue I am going to base my judgements based off his actions and what he’s said.  That’s how most people make judgements.  
 

I provided a real quote of him showing respect for Eberflus now please show me a real fact supporting that he doesn’t.

Which would mean he has respect for him...

I agree.  The NFL is a pretty exclusive and insulated environment.  I doubt there is much, if any, lack of respect between the upper echilon of players and coaches.  Especially not publicly.  Never know who youre going to end up working with.  I have no doubt Watson has, and shows, respect for any number of individuals in the league.

Watch him take it and hire mcdaniels as his oc.  That might be worth  it for me.  
 

one other thing he never chose to be with reich.  He expected to be working with mcd.  Who knows maybe he isn’t happy with that but had no choice.   I don’t think this is true but it’s a possibility 

McDaniels is going to be the Eagles head coach.

With a disgruntled QB, no first round pick, and a dismal defense? I'd pass

 
Perhaps, just spitballing here, he thinks that he can help Watson and the defense. Plus the idea of having one of 32 of these jobs in the entire world may be appealing.

I think you are missing the point. If they bring in someone Watson respects and wants maybe they can salvage the relationship with Watson.

Have you read his Twitter posts. I don't think it matters who they bring in at this point.

I agree I think the Watson train has left the station

The problem is he doesn’t really have much of away to force a trade short or just retiring and I don’t think that’s going to happen.  He has a long term contract and the way NFL contracts work you have to play some in order for years to count against the contract.  
 

Now you can argue having a disgruntled player isn’t in your best interest but if the Texans just say no we aren’t trading you and don’t budge Watson doesn’t have much of a choice.  
 

For what it’s worth John McClain who is one of the best beat writers in the country and is very plugged into the Texans was on the radio this afternoon saying there is zero chance the Texans trade Watson that management isn’t even open to considering the idea.

I dont use twitter, so I havent seen his posts, but I can't envision a scenario in which Houston allows him to go elsewhere.  He's too young and too rare. It would be suicide to let him walk.  Especially with no first (or second I cant quite remember) 2021 draft pick(s).

If they do move Watson they will have a first and second round pick in the 2021 draft and probably several more picks.  That much I can promise you.  With that said I doubt they move him based on people around the Texans that would know like John McClain who seem to think management in Houston is dead set against it.

Good luck to him then. All I know is, I wouldn't want that to be my first shot as a head coach. You don't get many second opportunities.

The league is and has been an opportunity for recycled head coaches for a long time.

I still think hes more valuable than potential picks at this point, but you make a strong argument.

Oh I don’t think he’s getting traded I am just saying if he does it will solve their draft pick problem.  So they basically have to pick between a franchise QB or draft picks.  It sounds like they are leaning towards franchise QB at this point.

Only the terminally clueless think Watson will be anywhere other than Houston. 

 

You can't force someone to play

I think the Texans hiring the GM they did might of changed Flus mind. He apparently holds the new GM in high regard.

Makes sense, with NE connection with Josh, and he was his DC pick?

Watson was disrespected. There's such a thing as self respect. You can't fixed this over night. They(Owner, GM, HC, QB) need to hold a mtg asap to stop the bleeding and move forward . There's nothing that an emergency mtg cannot resolve.

No you can’t but unless he’s willing to give up his career over it they can hold his contract rights forever.  Again, I really doubt he’s willing to do that.

He can hold out though and they would still have to pay him his guarantees

He could but at some point he’s going to have to play because he won’t advance his contact.  He doesn’t have much leverage here beyond just saying I am going to retire which I doubt he’s going to do.

    • So sounds like it’s the Colts’ year to finally make it rain in FA and sign some big name players.
    • Another reason why I think the Steelers might be ideal second trade partners is that they have a 4th Round compensation pick 13 picks later but no pick in Round 5.   Do like the Walker Little pick and hope he does slide to say the 4th and we could nab him.
    • JB is not my favorite QB. But even I would never compare him to the likes of the guys on that list. He is much more in the Hasselback group.    But I also disagree with putting Grigs on that list as well. He wasn’t a disaster or an embarrassment...he was just a disappointment in the end. A guy who couldn’t evaluate talent nearly as well as he did early in his career. And he was an unlikeable guy (which has always made me wonder how he sold Irsay on giving him the job).    But plenty of GMs fail to get there with a star QB...especially early in that QB’s career. Only one team gets to win the SB each year.    I mean...just look at Polian. He got there eventually...but he was gifted PFM...and didn’t win a playoff game until the 6th season. Grigs had won 3 by his 3rd season...and had just as many playoff appearances (3) as Polian over their first 5 seasons. Polian is a HOFer...but my point is that it’s not easy even when you get a great QB.   And as I have said before...Luck was great and my favorite player of all time...but he wasn’t quite Mahomes or Rodgers good...they are true Ferraris. He made mistakes and also didn’t exactly light it it up in January either. I think his prime would have been something to behold and maybe he would have taken his game to a new level...but injuries unfortunately derailed that (which I think many parties are to blame for...not just Grigs).   The guys on that list brought nothing to this org...Grigs at least managed to oversee a winning roster for years. A 49-31 record (.612 winning %) with a 3-3 playoff record, in 5 years, is far from a disaster. If you want to see what a true disaster looks like...it’s what has happened in HOU...where their FO has wasted a QB who (IMO) might be even better than Luck.   So far, Ballard has been superior in just about every facet. But the results are still the results. We can discount 2017...but without it the Colts are still just 28-20 (a .583 winning %) and 1-2 in the playoffs so far. Yes, he has only had Luck for one of those seasons...but that’s just another way of saying he needed Luck to win more games (to win more playoff games). And that’s the argument I always hear to vilify Grigs...that he only won because of Luck. Seems like a double standard...and not the only one.   I think most Colts fans have become huge fans of the process...and that’s great. It’s might be my favorite part of sports. But there are those that are still results-oriented...and I can understand why some might be asking what does it all without the results? This season will be huge to answering that question. 
    • Relax....i was paraphrasing a Bill Tobin quote . Tobin went off on Kiper when the Colts drafted Trev Alberta instead of Trent Dilfer.
