Deshaun Watson space records as a rookie and became a blazing fireplace down the stretch in his second season. May the third one year carry the Houston Texans quarterback to one other stage?
Completely healthy this offseason, Watson believes he’ll be strides better in Bill O’Brien’s offense in 2019.
“I basically feel luxuriate in I’m earlier than where I became, pointless to notify, final one year,” Watson mentioned, by assignment of the group’s legit net place of living. “Perfect decision making, operation of the offense, being in a position to make issues that I could maybe likely no longer make a one year sooner than and for sure my rookie one year. Being in a position to bewitch desire watch over and bewitch management of this offense and be in a position to bring collectively the young guys lined up, bring collectively obvious that the protection is upright, bring collectively obvious that the ball is getting positioned within the upright direction or where the ball wants to be versus this protection. It be been a noteworthy camp and we’re factual seeking to continue to give a boost to and bring collectively this offense shuffle.”
No matter being sacked a league-excessive 62 instances in 2018, Watson ranked sixth within the NFL with 8.2 yards per strive, sixth in passer rating at 103.1, seventh in completion proportion at 68.3 and eighth in TD-INT ratio at 26-9. In his final nine games, Watson led the NFL with a 115.2 passer rating, per the group’s net place of living.
Watson’s mastery of O’Brien’s offense is handiest one piece of the equation in Houston. The Texans have to hope (and pray) for better protection in front of the QB, and that his weapons can preserve healthy.
If DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee can all remain out of the discovering out room, the Texans is also an explosive offense with Watson slinging pigskins.
“Whoever is touching the ball on each and every possession can bring collectively something occur,” Watson mentioned. “We’re all assured that we’re going to be on the same page, noteworthy chemistry, beget some relaxing and bewitch a look for at to gentle up the scoreboard as mighty as we are able to.”
