There are a lot of misses in this post.Again not sure why or where you get this idea I hate Watson. That makes absolutely no sense to me what so ever unless you think I want him to fail because of outside reasons I won’t go into because it would get us both banned.
We can sit here and look at the positives as you say all day long but the fact is the team is a dumpster fire with no end in sight so it would be fools gold in my eyes. There is an old saying never fail to learn in victory what you would have learned in defeat. In other words I can give you a list of Watson’s positives, and yes I do know he has many, but those positives aren’t the focus because it’s not the positives he needs to improve on.
Yes if Watson has a top 5 defense and a wall for an Oline and a scary running game and top receivers he would be doing much better. You know what though any QB in the NFL would look like a superstar with those things. What makes the greats the greats is that even without them they find ways. Rogers hasn’t had any help on defense or receivers for years but GB is still always in the mix. Wilson lost beast mode and the legion of boom but he’s kept the hawks a force to fear. Mahomes has a joke for a defense and not only didn’t he have a running game but he had a coach that doesn’t even plan for a running game and he got the Chiefs into the mix.
I don’t expect Watson to win it all alone and you’re right the defense has crapped the bed many times. Though I have to say I find it ironic that now people are saying the defense is crap and holding the team back but when OB was here and they did that it was OB’s fault. The philly game in particular comes to mind. And yes there has been times Watson alone has saved the day such as the game against the Giants, but there has also been times when the heroics has hit the team in the backside as well.
Go back and look at all the great QBs' first four years (including Mahomes).
Watson measures up with them quite well, thank you.
In Mahomes' second year, for example, you may think they had a bad defense, but it was actually an opportunistic defense that created 30 turnovers.
How many do you think the Texans had?
