    Whose record did he tie? Not that it matters but it'd be sweeter if it were some great player vs. some scrub who had a great day.

    Great day for Watson nonetheless.

    I trust his take more than yours since you know... He was there.

    People like Sherman don't discuss injustices done to themselves. Kap and Sherman know they are rich privileged athletes.

    I just don't get why athletes have to have a special rule where they can't hold opinions. I guess they just need to dance on the field and keep their mouth shut right? Because they ain't humans, they athletes.

    Why is it when a black person does or says something, they have to represent the whole race?

    Really, dude? I know you're probably dealing with a troll but that generalization is totally uncalled for.

    Of course he was there. The whole headline was about him and what he thought was 'injustice'. You dont have to trust my take trust the facts my dude. Ill leave this here for you and if you still side with him, well, youre just looking for something to b!tch about and youre the one trying to create a divide. The dude is an idiot crying wolf and trying to stir up this whole pot of racism even further.

    Theres nothing wrong with opinions. Everybody has them, doesnt mean I have to agree with them or find them non-annoying.

    I think Bobby's owned up to his doubts plenty. No need to rub his nose in it, I was skeptical of starting Watson as well and was not happy with BoB for putting him in moreso because he spent so much time building up Savage. I thought they'd ruin Watson just like they ruined everyone else.

    Turns out everyone else just sucked and Watson is the effing truth. This time last year we were watching Osweiler give sad press conferences about wanting to be better.

    This kid is the real deal Holyfield.

    I hate that he has to be compared to dak Prescott or Russel Wilson just because their skin color is the same.

    This dude reminds me of the goat Aaron Rodgers.

    The way he dancing around in the pocket and then rifles a throw anywhere on the field with extreme accuracy.

    He looks like young Rodgers.

    And there is nothing wrong with Wilson or Prescott those guys are franchise QB and have accomplished a lot Wilson winning a super bowl but this guy Watson is different he throws a better ball it's just on the money like the great Aaron Rodgers.

    I think finally the Texans have gotten it right at the most important position.

    You guys know I love harden and he's The Godfather of houston sports at the moment but Watson has a chance to be the golden child of houston it's football and this is Texas lol.

    I hope he signs with adidas so him and JH can make some sick commercials together.

    Houston could finally have two faces repping the great city. Harden was carrying the city of Houston by himself ever since he came to Houston from OKC. This Deshawn dude is making a claim.....

    I sure hope so

    This guy has me excited for football again it's been a very long time.

    I'm always excited for JH. I realized in his second season in houston that he was a alltime talent and one of the best basketball players to ever lace them up.

    Ppl will catch on soon enough, I think they forget he's only just turned 28.

    Nobody but Lebron would have been able to accomplish what JH has in 5 years here with what he's had to play with.

    Now we got hina real squad and a real robin in cp3 now he'll show everyone what's up.

    Houston winning the chip this year and kicking the warriors ass in 6.

    Got you. I missed that game, but saw his highlights. Yes, he looked great. But winning is even better.
