Deshaun Watson should be the quarterback of the Houston Texans if the team can work out a long term deal with him.
If the Houston Texans are thinking about trading Deshaun Watson or letting him walk once his rookie contract plays out after this season, they should think about that very carefully. Watson is a proven commodity who is already a winner and should get even better as he gains more experience.
If Deshaun Watson isn’t the quarterback, then who would be? Let’s play make-believe for a few moments. If all 32 teams dropped all their quarterbacks and there was a draft just for signal-callers, and the Texans had the first pick, who would they choose?
Remember, we are looking for a quarterback for the future. Someone who can lead this franchise for the next five, six, or seven seasons, possibly more.
If you were Bill O’Brien, who would you choose.
Why Deshaun Watson should be the quarterback of the future for the Houston Texans: The Hall of Famers
If you are considering the future, you can automatically eliminate the four future Hall of Fame quarterbacks still playing. As good as they may have been over their careers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, and Philip Rivers probably do not have more than a year or two each left.
All four of these could be done by the end of the 2020 season and wouldn’t be any help to the Texans. It would be better to look in other directions for the future.
Why Deshaun Watson should be the quarterback of the future for the Houston Texans: The Unimpressive
This list is long and undistinguished and makes you realize how bad things could be. Would you want Ryan Tannehill? How about Tyrod Taylor? Mitch Trubisky or Nick Foles?
Ryan Fitzpatrick? No thanks! Marcus Mariota? Nope? Teddy Bridgewater? Maybe, but who wants to take that chance right now besides the Panthers? How do you feel about Jacoby Brissett? Even the Colts looked elsewhere. Jameis Winston? Sure, if you love turnovers!
