Will the Texans let Braxton Miller throw the ball more?

The Houston Texans need to let Braxton Miller play some quarterback.

If the Houston Texans are going to have any chance at getting something going on offense, they’ll need to pull out every trick in the book.

On Sunday, former Ohio State quarterback and current Texans’ wide receiver Braxton Miller ended up playing quarterback out of a wild cat formation during their loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Check out the play below:

Now I don’t believe Miller should be the Texans’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, but would it really hurt to give him a series or two during a game?

Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien should at least give Miller some snaps in practice with the first-team offense at quarterback and see how things work out. Maybe he is the best replacement for Deshaun Watson.

Miller is a talented athlete that has yet to make an impact as a receiver, so why not put him in a position to help the Texans win a football game without Watson?

It’s not like benching Savage and his 62.2 quarterback rating for a series or two would really hurt the Texans. His Pro Football Focus grade during Houston’s loss to the Rams was 29.0. Let that sink in for a minute.

As much as I would like to see Fuller get a bunch of snaps at quarterback, given the fact that he’s probably better than both Josh Johnson and T.J. Yates, it likely won’t happen. Now I wouldn’t rule out him possibly getting one or two wild cat snaps a game, but that’s about it.
