Deshaun Watson should be the quarterback of the future for the Houston Texans

Let’s return to reality. Teams are not going to be dropping their quarterbacks. Teams are going to keep their stars at that position, as any smart franchise would do.

Starting over with a rookie doesn’t sound appealing either because it is such a crapshoot. The Texans have a 24-year-old star quarterback they need to lock down completely and before the start of the 2020 season.

Watson’s past two seasons stack up with just about anyone else’s. He’s average 4,000 passing, he has 52 touchdowns to only 21 interceptions, and he is completing 67 percent of his attempts. He can create positive plays with his legs, with 964 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.

In addition to everything else, he is establishing himself as a proven winner with a 21-10 record in 2018 and 2019, and two AFC championships.

Watson is better right now than most off the options, real or make-believe. When you toss in things like health, age, and performance, Watson and his still enormous upside should be even more appealing, and he is already on your roster. There is no need to trade him or to mess up a good thing.

Whatever is going on around the Houston Texans right now has to be figured out. Deshaun Watson needs to be happy and eager to be the quarterback for the team in 2020 and beyond.
