Houston Texans fans get a letter from Peter King about Davis Mills
Now since the Houston Texans starting quarterback is Davis Mills, analysts are voicing their opinions.
At least for now, the Houston Texans will be led by Davis Mills on Sundays in the 2022 NFL season. Peter King, who writes the “Peter King’s Football Morning in America” column, gave some love to the second-year quarterback out of Stanford.
King talked about how Mills finished the season on a high note, throwing nine touchdowns to two interceptions (9:2 ratio). King was intrigued and had positive things to say that his quarterback’s coach is now his offensive coordinator (Pep Hamilton).
It’s great to see Mills get the attention that he deserves, as he outperformed every other rookie quarterback except Mac Jones and Trevor Lawrence last season. Mills also rallied the Houston Texans from a 21-0 halftime deficit against the Tenessee Titans in the final game of the regular season, a comeback that ultimately fell short. However, that 28-25 loss was a testament to how much of a leader Mills was in that game.
The Houston Texans are still in a good spot even if Mills doesn’t pan out
With four first-round draft picks in the next two years, the Texans are in a good spot in case Mills isn’t “it.” Keeping Mills around and finding out what the Texans truly have in him is a great idea in a year where the quarterback class is not as strong as other years.
That being said, Mills needs more weapons. Outside of Brandin Cooks, the Texans lacked another true threat at the receiver position. Tight ends were virtually nonexistent in the offense as well.
That pick at 13 could be an offensive weapon, and it would go a long way towards helping this team in a hyper-offense-focused NFL.
