    He's a lot like him. But Watson doesn't quite have the arm strength or the ability to stay healthy.

    The problem is he is being coached like he is an old George Blanda.

    "Just drop straight back and let the defense zero in on that one spot."

    "Gee coach, how about a moving pocket or a rollout every now and then? Where I could use my mobility to avoid getting hit, instead of getting crushed every time the pocket collapses?"

    "No Geor... err... Deshaun! You might trip over your AARP card!"

    Bottom line fore is Watson is still healthy

    I don't really care what the record is this year.

    Why does Watson gotta be Russell Wilson 2.0?

    How come Russell Wilson isn't just the Beta version of DeShaun Watson?

    Porn and gay sex...I usually (always) filter that out of my search especially WHEN I’M SEARCHING INFORMATION REGARDING MY FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM!

    Anyway, I’m a big Wilson fan, he has 1 SB win, should have two... if only if it weren’t for those pesky HC egos. Guess they all have ‘em.

    Staubach was accurate because he gunned the ball. Late in his career O linemen learned to rush him with their hands in the air. They started knocking down a lot of his passes.

    As long as Watson is not a Schaub Version 2. I would have to hit the "Not Like Button".

    Wilson has one of, if not the best deep passers in the game.
    It is usually deadly accurate and he can throw it on the run.
    If the Seahawks can get a 1st rate burner on the outside, they will always threaten deep.

    Best QB we've had to date. If Watson can be Schaub + I'd be ok with that

    I really didn't want to say, but this "he wants to make plays from the pocket" talk reminds me of Aaron Brooks. A QB I was happy to see go to Nawlins & get a shot. The dude was very talented. Not Michael Vick talented. Not Donovan McNabb talented. But a really nice blend. He could make plays from the pocket. He could extend plays. He could make plays with his legs. But he limited himself trying to be a certain type of QB.

    Now I don't get the feeling Watson is "trying" to be whatever, so I'm not too worried. But every week that's what I'm hearing from the announcers.

    Or maybe B rooks wasn't smart enough to learn how to read defenses.

    Watson appears to be a hardworker who spends a lot of time watching film. Something that was never said about Brooks.

    Chris Collinsworth made a great couple of points during the Hall of Fame Game.
    His first was that the QB can do more than his oline for his own protection. This rings very true as we all know Watson holds on to the ball too long waiting for a play to develop.
    The second point he made was that doing so encourages rushers in their efforts to get after the QB.
    This makes sense as the rusher knows there is a good chance he will get to the passer before he gets rid of the ball.
    Now if the rusher knows the passer gets rid of the ball very quickly he will be in two minds of where he should be to effect his best play. And if the DC knows it too, he will be more reluctant to call blitzes or at least ones with large amounts of personnel involved else he leave his backfield exposed.
    Watson is a smart guy - it will be very interesting to see how he plays this year.

    I don't really think they play that similar, I see more Aaron Rodgers with less arm strength but more athleticism

    The way he plays rather than physical traits. Specifically how they both move outside the pocket while keeping their eyes downfield and being adept at the deep ball even on the run.

    I believe Watson will mature into a top 5 QB. Another couple of seasons under his belt will do him wonders.
    He has already shown plenty of flashes - now he just needs to work on those areas that are getting him into trouble.
