Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage didn’t wait long at all when it comes to throwing shade at Brock Osweiler.
While speaking with the media on Monday Texans quarterback Tom Savage decided to take a subtle shot at quarterback Brock Osweiler after being asked about Sean Ryan taking over as the new quarterbacks coach.
Can anyone blame Savage for not holding back?
"“It’s going to be a fun room; it’s going to be a peaceful room,” Savage said after being asked about working with Ryan for the first time."
It’s been well documented about Osweiler and Texans head coach Bill O’Brien had their shouting matches last season and I’m sure not one player on the team will miss that.
Savage was asked about his chance to be the Texans’ starting quarterback going into next season.
"“It’s a great opportunity. I’m going to play hard. Nothing in this league is handed to you. You have to earn it every day. I’m pumped. It’s going to be fun.”"
Savage was also asked about his injury problems.
"“Hopefully, this is the last time I’ll have to talk about injuries,” he said. “I’ve been over every one of them. A lot of them can be avoided with experience.”"
There’s no doubt that his team is now Savage’s. If he wants it of course.

It’s now up to Savage to prove that he can lead the Texans to the playoffs and beyond. Heading into training camp, he will be the favorite to start week one.
With Tony Romo out of the picture…for now. And the Texans still expected to draft a quarterback, the pressure is on Savage to get the job done.
