Watson is like the Altuve of QBs: he'll make you got "WTF?" on both ends of the spectrum.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Imagine what they could do with good management and coaching.

I am a Texan fan,but it is so frustrating to watch their play calling.

This Chargers team is there for the taking.  It’s a shame that the customary bed-shitting in the 3rd quarter will put this one beyond reach.

Reverse-jinx. Executed flawlessly.

Exactly.  And yet, with some better strategy at the end of the season opener, they’d be 3-0 a including two wins on the road against tough opponents.

Crazy.

Their coaches sometimes make them do inexplicable things, and they sometimes do dumb things on their own, but I'll give them one thing: the guys on the field don't quit.

What the Texans have managed to do better so far this year is score touchdowns in the red zone. Last year they would have kicked four field goals and lost this game 20-18.  They still have to overcome BoB’s game management, but they’re putting it he ball in the end zone.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

The Browns, down by a TD, picked the Rams with 2+ minutes remaining and 3 timeouts.  They moved down the field and had 1st and goal with all timeouts remaining.  They too their 1st timeout on 4th and goal. 

Of for BOB to have such calmness in the face of the clock.

Of course, they didn’t score.

They ran a draw play on 4th and 9 earlier in the fourth quarter AFTER they failed to challenge a very obvious defensive pass interference that wasn't called.  The Browns head coach had BOB hold his beer last night.
Goin' for a bus ride.

Nope.  But the clock management and lack of panic was exemplary.  This Texans roster likely scores there, but they’d never actually get there with the time...or timeouts...to do it.

Point of order: Texans fans have to be the most pessismistic in the league. It seems that a few of you simply follow the team even they they cause you much heartburn over how they are coached and run. Is the heartburn worth it? As a member of Who Dat Nation, I'm here to extend an olive branch and an invitation to switch your allegiance to the New Orleans Saints!!!

I know the Lions fan base well. They lack hope in ever winning again. There's a big difference between hopelessness and pessimism. Contrast the Lions fan base with that of the Browns. The Browns fan base is rabid and seriously beleives that they can compete this year. They're hopeful in spite of the early evidence to the contrary.

Anyone who refers to their fandom as a “nation” deserves to be punched in the dick.

I extended an olikve branch and made what should be an attractive offer, and this is how I am treated?

The thought of being a Saints fan is not attractive. It’s like pissing down your leg. I’m sure it feels warm to you, but to everyone else it’s disgusting.

I'm sure there's other reasons HH wants to punch you in the dick, I wouldn't worry about this one.

Saints with Brees have been fun to root for in the NFC.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Suit yourself. Wallow in your misery. We'll just have to read many more comments from people who never coached or played about BOB being an idiot and the club's numbnuts owner and GM. I'll take Sean Payton any day of the week.
