    I'm gonna say he's the real deal, and not based off one preseason game

    Watson is a stud in the making.

    Watson was the best quarterback of the 2017 draft. The Texans did the right thing trading for him.

    I'm interested to see how he comps with the class.

    I think it will be him or Mahomes as the best of the class.

    seems like the consensus from game 1 is that Watson has excellent mobility and pocket awareness, but can be inaccurate and stares down receivers

    Uh..... He came into the game in the 2nd quarter and led them to a td, plenty of 2nd stringers in there. LULZ. If you guys want to bring up the whole "well, who did he play against" argument, I think its rather weak and I wont waste my time tbh. It was their first game for all of them and to say that Trubisky doesnt deserve to be in the mix for top rookie qb this year is rather dumb.

    You are basing your facts after one preseason game against mostly guys who won't be in the league next year.

    1)No blitzing
    2)No scheme
    3)No defense

    Its great and all to get high on a guy for looking good in preseason, but even guys like Case Keenum have great two or three game stretches with live bullets until they are figured out.

    Mahomes and Watson both possess far higher potential than Trubisky. I think that's pretty clear.

    Lulz. Ill rebuttal this with this:
    Your reading comprehension needs more comprehension, as i have said this was all their first games. I wasnt the one to already anoint top of the class just yet. LULZ. Youre coming off like a fool. I guess you should sit on the sidelines and still wait.

    Dumb just called me dumb.

    I made a prediction. I didn't "anoint".

    Reading comprehension is fine. You are having trouble differing what an opinion is.

    The only fool here is the one who lost his emotional toolcase over someone's thought.

    Please.

    Lulz. I simply said:
    You came back with this:
    Pretty presumptuous and defiant against me simply saying maybe you didnt watch Trubisky play. Then said this:
    How the hell do you bring up the argument of "who did he play against" when you didnt even watch his game and rule him out as a good qb? I simply said Trubisky should be in the mix for top rookie qb. You got all butt hurt and came back with "its his first game, no scheme" bull. No ****. Its all their first games. Ive stated as much.

    Trubisky wasn't flawless and was going against very vanilla looks from the 2nd or 3rd string Broncos defense. (Like all of the rookie QBs who played well.) No one knows anything until the real action starts and D coordinators start game planning these games. But alot of these young guys had good moments.

    I wouldn't say it's clear that Mahomes and Watson have higher potential than Trubisky I mean he was the 2nd overall pick for a reason.

    In two, or three years I'm going to comeback and laugh at this.

    Write it down, take a picture. I dont give a ****.
    I hope Watson is the best qb in this draft as he is the qb of the Texans. Still a little early to declare anything, dont you think? I guess you know something everybody else doesnt.

    Trubisky had a better game than Watson in the 1st game.

    What's your point?

    I think Watson has more potential(based off work ethic I believe he reaches it)than Tru.

    That's all I said from the beginning. Another posters response was "Im assuming you didn't see Trubisky play."

    The first game in the preseason is meaningless. Aaron Rodgers and Derek Carr were horrid in their first preseason appearance.

    It means nothing.
