The Houston Texans dropped another game as they lost by 15 against the Miami Dolphins. It was not a very good day for the offense as the Texans decided to move away from Davis Mills and give the starting nod to former Washington Commander Kyle Allen.

In his season debut, he did not look any better than Mills, as he threw for 215 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. While going putting up a 66.7 completion percentage and a 67.8 passer rating. The run game has slowed down yet again as the offense ran for a total of 36 yards with the leading rusher being Dare Ogunbowale, with four carries for fourteen yards and a touchdown.

As it looks, every Houston Texans fans is ready for the season to end look to draft get a fresh start with a high draft pick and hopefully a new head of the offense. That decision will be between Ohio State’s CJ Stroud or Alabama’s Bryce Young.

The Houston Texans Should Draft Bryce Young

CJ Stroud has been great this season as he leads college football in most categories but it seems like he doesn’t do well in big games. Now don’t get me wrong CJ Stroud has a great arm and very athletic, but I really don’t think he makes a great decision-maker.

Take the Michigan game for example many analysts expected Ohio State to blow Michigan out as Michigan had a not-very-healthy Blake Corum and an inconsistent quarterback in JJ McCarthy. What did we see? We saw CJ Stroud throw two interceptions and constantly missing his targets and making bad reads. Which brings me to the point of why the Texans should draft Bryce Young.

The Houston Texans should pick Bryce Young because he makes a huge difference when he plays for Alabama. In his two losses, he had played his best. For example, when he battled Heisman Hopeful Hendon Hooker, Young passed for 455 yards and two touchdowns. In his other loss he had a 49 percent completion percentage but still threw for 328, one touchdown, and a interception.

What I like about Young is not only is he a Heisman trophy winner but he is at his best in big moments and is calm and collected when leading his team to victory. I first saw this in his win against Texas. He drove his team down the field with efficiency and ease. He makes quick reads and isn’t afraid to take a hit in the pocket.
