Yes but he was forced to have a great season. He had no running game ! Hyde had 1100 yds, Duke and Watson each over 400 yds, Hop had 1200 yds rec, …. 11 wins …. 3 or 4 other 400+ yd receivers No wonder Watson is POed !Except Watson had his best season without Hopkins. If OB's plan was to trade Hopkins to force Watson to spread the pass around and not let defenses know just who he would throw to 9 out of 10 times, well, hate to say it but it worked.
