Actually nothing else to say, but this: Deshaun Watson has all the leverage in the world

The Texans have nowhere to stand their fan base has never been so angry.Even if they may hire the right new general manager, they’ll screw up the search process, put themselves back in the national crosshairs and take out the 25-year-old franchise quarterback, who is the key to everything

You will remember how incredibly difficult it was for Texans to find just one franchise QB

The Texans didn’t even remember picking up the phone just to make their franchise QB feel part of the new regime

Watson has had the best season for a QB in Texan history after Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins, one of the best broadband receivers in the NFL, without giving D4 a head high after losing new No. 1 WR Will Fuller to a PED suspension, sacked 49 more times, played for a 4-12 team with one of the worst defenses in the league and aided by an often non-existent running game

He’s in the middle of all of her promotions. He’s young, charismatic, full of confidence and boasting, cool, personable, interesting, and unique

Basically, he’s everything Texans never had until ex-GM Rick Smith had the strength to win the No. 1 Clemson National Champion 1 to be exchanged 12 total selection in draft 2017

Four seasons later, Watson is one of the best quarterbacks in the league – and he can still improve

They will always be the new Cleveland Browns.But the Browns are now 11-5 and in the playoffs, while the once ridiculous Raiders went 8-8 this season and were way better than the Texans

Cal McNair’s franchise is desperate for public support and persuasion #FireEaterby and “Sell the Team” immediately shadow every tweet from the team

So what are the Texans doing as they stare at the opportunity for their first clean slate in the Watson era?

Even the New York Jets wouldn’t do that. You have Sam Darnold Nobody really cares what they think about the future of the Jets

The Jacksonville Jaguars hold the No. 1 overall selection in this year’s design and are met with interest from Urban Meyer That sounds like hope for the future

But pissing off Watson this early in his career – after signing a four-year contract extension for $ 160 million – is easily the most short-sighted move in franchise history, and it also proves to be 832 Time the McNairs have struggled to get the NFL thing right and are disconnected from the fan base that keeps their billions going

Does Watson look a little everywhere, letting his frustration spread to the national and local media just four months after signing a record extension, crying happily as he talks about his commitment to the Texans?

“Broken rib, lung injury, cruciate ligament tear – whatever it takes,” Watson said in September. “You really need to keep me out of the field. Struck eye, eyeball dripped out, whatever it takes I’m in that field Until that doctor Forcing me and holding on, I’m in the field trying to win I try to win in everything – just in life in general

“I never try to compare myself to other people. I focus on my situation: Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans … I do everything I can to get where we want to go”

Then they decided not to interview Eric Bieniemy for her job as the overt head coach, despite the Kansas City Watsons No. 1 was 1 pick (and the Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season after beating the Texans 51-7 to end a divisional round playoff game)

Not only did Jack Easterby lose his job, but he was the main link in the Texans’ hiring of Nick Caserio as the team’s new GM

Easterby has been hired to connect with players just the opposite has happened at NRG Stadium and only McNair can’t see it

The team’s CEO has promised a change and has seen no results so far McNair went out of his way to let everyone know how much he listened to Watson, then ignored the influential D4 after one of the best individual seasons in Texan history

NBA superstar and franchise face James Harden called on Houston and the Rockets kept the leverage. He still makes big numbers on Stephen Silas’ 2-4 team on

If Watson doesn’t cool off – if he demands a deal – the Texans have nothing to stand on

Fans don’t believe in the organization or the property The players question everything and have done so since Gary Kubiak gave way to O’Brien

It should never have reached that point, and once again McNair’s Texans have only themselves to blame
