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.

    • Browns have to overtake the Ravens and Steelers first and the Dolphins have to deal with the Bills and an improved Patriots.  Nobody said it would be easy but I like our game plan of running the ball and playing top 10 defense over all teams mentioned.  
    • Even a team like the Browns could have an off season. They look like a team on the rise but if Baker takes a step back who knows. They are still the Browns. The AFC is pretty loaded, the Dolphins look good on paper too, the Steelers and Patriots might even be good. They usually are, Pats re-tooled a little.
    • I'm predicting another FA.... Doubt the LT/OT class next year will be as good or better than this year's. And I don't see us picking early in the 2nd...    Or if Fisher doesn't recover and work out, we'll likely be forced to slide Q out, and if Q works out, then... 
    • I had to click cuz it could have been literally anything.   I may be wrong, but i think that ship may have sailed.  Reich seems to really like this new kid. Not sure thetes room for a 4th TE.  And i dont see doyle or mac goin anywhere this year.  I could see a guy added to the PS.   There are quite a number of guys at different positions that i see having more value on the roster than Ertz.   But, I’ll be ok with whatever.  
    • Yes, the same KC team that we beat at their facility with Jacoby as our starting qb in 2019?  I'm not saying we are unbeatable by any means but I feel there is not one team in the NFL that I don't like our chances against.  This offensive line + a top 2 back in Taylor will be special and add in a top 10 Def its a Championship caliber team.
