    I don't want him to be the next Russell Wilson I want him to be the Current Deshaun Watson. Just wish that maybe the current Deshaun Watson didn't always try to extend plays so much.

    Russell Wilson's got a super bowl ring.

    If Deshaun Watson wins one of those, he'll have done what he was brought here to do.

    But there's no reason for this comparison, they are peers. I want him to be better than Russell Wilson, not the next one.

    A 2.0 version is usually better than 1.0.

    I am sensing a lot of sensitivity when comes to discussing Watson.

    He's playing like a young Steve Young. Hopefully he becomes HOF'er Steve Young.

    If he continues to improve reading defenses/internal clock improves and the talent around him improves Watson has HOF ability.

    As of right now, they are very similar. Fine by me.

    I see the similiar play on the field, but i think there is a big difference in the way the locker room feels of each guy. DW4 has the it factor to lead in a positive way and treats everyone the right way meaning he gets everything out o the team. I hear rumors Russell is not near as popular, but is respected for his play. I think DW4 is sustainable and a positive to get more out of the existing talent. Would not trade straight up, keeping my chips on DW4

    Well.. as far as longevity.. I'll take it.
    Game wise.. I believe WatSon has a better "it factor" upside and that's saying something as Wilson has had many a bad ass moment.

    All that being said... I hope Watson doesn't let some chick dictate his life up to and including when he's allowed to have the sex. (Yes.. I realize how that sounds but you get me)
    I mean.. forfuxsakes.... pun.

    Side Q: Is Watson straight? Unbothered either way but at least he wouldn't have to put up with crazy women if he were.
    Of course, that could be why he's revered as a great locker room guy. I mean.. if he were gay.. I get why he's so friendly.


    Ok Ok Ok ... the previous was mostly a joke. Don't ban me.

    i've only been here a week, but reading things like this makes me wish there was a not like button

    devil's advocate: why couldn't he have a crazy gay boyfriend?

    jm2c, but maybe leave the stereotyping at home chief -- not a great look out in public

    Forget that, you want to see some real fireworks start a "Thank You Rick Smith" thread or a "Firing Kubiak was Best Decision the Texans Ever Made" thread. Trust me there ain't enough popcorn in the world.

    You mean about Watsons "longevity"?
