    Savage's contract won't be renewed and he will likely be out of the league.

    Tom Savage takes, and deserves, blame for ugly Texans loss to Rams

    By: Jeff Risdon | TexansWire
    In the aftermath of Sunday’s dismal 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien tried to take the blame for the defeat. O’Brien deserves some of the heat for sure, but quarterback Tom Savage quickly — and accurately — shifted the blame onto his own shoulders.



    Savage struggled badly after starting out with a competent first half. Nothing hurt more than the pair of red zone interceptions he threw. The first came just before halftime when the game was still very much up in the air. The second ended any realistic hope of even covering the 11.5-point spread.

    In all, Savage turned the ball over four times and misfired on more than 66 percent of his throws in the second half.



    The replacement starter looked very much like a quarterback who needs to be replaced himself. It’s nice that Savage shouldered the blame, but being the reason the team lost the game is not something that can persist for him.​


    Might want to pass some blame onto whoever decided this Offensive Line was good enough, too.

    The fact this guy and Brock have a job in the nfl and not kaep is ridiculous. During the trial he should just play the game tape for this game.

    Savage may not start another game in the NFL. EVER...

    And for the billionth time...WE ARE NOT PICKING UP COLIN CRAPERNICK; He is a former employee sue-ing his old company...just to be able to work with them again.

    That's also an offensive line statistic.

    The defenses have been timed getting to Savage in under 2 seconds.

    Yeah, Savage is bad. Savage is too slow. But no QB who can't run can survive this OL. Nobody could slow Donald or Brockers down. Zero surprise. We knew this line would be horrible, and it's historically talentless horrible.

    Everything Savage does is in slow motion. Approaching the line, the snap, the dropback(looks like he's bungie tied to the center and wearing lead boots), the reads(when he's not locked from the snap), pocket presence, the reaction to pressure, even getting hit and going down looks like it's in slow motion. The guy plays with no urgency and looks like he's on ambien, xanax, or some ****.

    He was a COLLEGE journeyman QB why would they expect him to be anything better than that? Odds are he would be the same or worse against better competition and that's exactly what happened.

    everyone knows that and some of us have known that for years. drafting him, naming him starter (completely undeserved I might add), and then forcing yourself to keep him because he cost you a draft pick is terrible management. this is the risk of trying to avoid rebuilding and trying to reload. it rarely works and almost never with QBs.

    You think there's enough difference between Tom Savage and a journeyman we signed off the street two weeks ago to warrant "disappointment"?

    It's decided -- Savage is slow. Slow as molasses.

    TJ Yates is quicker (likely everyone on the team is quicker than Savage, seriously), knows the system, and is a Texan folk hero. Why not him?
