Deshaun Watson is going to have to do his best to prepare for a very loud environment with the Houston Texans heading to Seattle this week to face off against the Seahawks.
Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has already faced two difficult tests while going up against both the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs this season.
But this week, could very well be Watson’s toughest match-up in his short NFL career, as the Texans prepare to play on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks have arguably the best home field advantage in the NFL, with one of the loudest crowds, that has caused seismic activity from their loud cheering.
Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien was asked how he plans on preparing Watson for tough situation.
"“Just crank the music as loud as it’ll possibly go,” O’Brien said."
O’Brien even went into how they find what music to play during practice.
"“I love the music,” O’Brien said. “I have different tastes in music and I love music, all kinds of music. I don’t pick that music. I have a resident DJ named Jenerro that picks it for me. He’s a good guy. He does a good job. He takes requests, so if you guys have any requests when you’re out there during stretch.“I would pick all different kinds. I really would. I’m being serious. Obviously, I would pick Rick Ross. I would pick country, I would pick some Irish tunes. So, I have all different kinds of tastes.”"
Loud music will help, but there is really is no way for Watson and the Texans to get accustomed to what they will experience in Seattle.
The most important thing for Houston’s offense will be to get acclimated to using a silent count and also using a lot of hand signals, especially with audibles.
The Seahawks have a very strong run defense, if the Texans are going to have a chance at coming away with a win, they will likely need to have success through the air. That’s of course where Watson comes in.
