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.

    • Crap, sorry.   with the 129th pick, the Seahawks select:   Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn   If that doesn’t make Russell Wilson happy, then 7@€# him!   @crazycolt1and the Jags are aim the clock.
    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.
