Deshaun Watson makes it harder for Texans to sell slow, unsteady Tom Savage

If the Texans are still leaning toward Tom Savage as their starting quarterback for Week 1 of the regular season after Week 1 of the preseason, then one can’t say they paid attention to anything Deshaun Watson did for the team in his NFL debut Wednesday night.

Sure, Savage by all accounts has been the better QB in training camp, and he earned the right to get into the game first against the Panthers. But looking the part in practice is one thing and being a poised, successful gamer — even in a game that doesn’t count — is another. Enter Watson, who was every bit NFL Jerseys Wholesale of that at Clemson.

“Four months ago, there was a debate as to whether [Kaepernick] is talented enough or whatever,” Jenkins said. “I think at this point in time when you look at the quarterbacks who have jobs around the league, and the amount of owners and GMs who have only spoken of what fans would think about his stance. I think it’s safe to throw out that talent argument, and basically focus on the fact that he doesn’t have a job solely because he didn’t stand for the anthem last year, even though he already expressed that he planned on standing this year.

“That message, to me, is loud and clear from owners as to where their priorities stand Nike NFL Jerseys and how they go about picking and choosing who they want on their teams. It’s definitely unfortunate, but it’s shining a light on just how the NFL operates and what we deem as acceptable. It really has nothing to do with what’s right or wrong, but what affects dollars. That’s business as usual, but I think it’s an unfortunate precedent to set.”
