Deshaun Watson is the hottest kid in sports right now. The guy just donated his game checks to 3 cafeteria ladies who lost all their stuff in the recent Harvey storms, he recently just put up one of the better performances we’ve ever seen by a rookie QB against Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. He’s also maintaining the pressure and all the noise around him. Talk shows love him, and there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t seen his face on the TV. He’s intriguing, and he’s also our future.
Watson’s first game that showed true promise was this week against the Patriots. Watson played out of his mind and showed that he can be the QB of the future. He showed that he was able to play and have a shootout with one of the best QB’s to ever take the field. Oh, and also, that was only his 2nd game as a starter. Watson has potential and he knows it. Watson must focus on the season like Bill O’Brien focuses on every game. Every game is a new season, and you’re 0-0. No matter what happened last week, this is a new week, and it’s time to prove them wrong like it’s your first game. The Texans have the classic Patriots “on to next week” attitude, and this is exactly what Watson will need. Not only will he play against the Titans in week 4 (Who are a very good young team on the rise) and Watson, no matter how well he played, has stated that the loss last week was a difficult one. Watson will need to erase any doubts that he may have had in his mind and prepare for a new defense that may pose a challenge. This will be the true test of Watson to see how he can bounce back after a loss. Last week wasn’t entirely his fault, but as a QB, most of the game gets placed on you. Watson has played in pressure, and under the big lights, and has shined. Now we just need to see how his skills are on bouncing back against opponents.
