Tom Savage has been impressing Houston Texans’ great Andre Johnson.
It’s safe to say that Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage has been impressive so far this preseason.
One thing that’s stuck out to me is just how accurate Savage has been this summer.
Savage has completed 17 of 20 pass attempts during the Texans’ first two preseason games. That’s a completion percentage of 85 percent.
Former Texans’ wide receiver Andre Johnson was in attendance during Monday’s practice in Houston and he told the local media that he’s impressed with Savage’s accuracy.
From the Houston Chronicle:
"“I thought he was very accurate when he first got here with where he placed the ball at,” said Johnson while attending the Texans’ training camp practice Monday."
It might only be a small sample size given the fact that it’s the preseason and we haven’t seen how well Savage can play against an opposing defense that will be throwing all kinds of looks at him. But he’s doing what he’s supposed to when it comes to taking care of the football and completing a high percentage of his throws in order to keep the chains moving.
If Savage can keep this up during the regular season, Houston could be ready to make a deep run into the playoffs as long as their defense holds up to their end of the bargain like they did last year.
Savage’s potential success would also give rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson plenty of time to relax and adjust to the NFL game from the sidelines.
