...and looks like Watson banged up his leg on the TD

Still in the tent.

He's back in but you can tell his right leg is bothering him.

3 fucking drops by Hopkins?  WTF?

He's on my fantasy team. He probably won't get straightened out until I drop him.
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

Drops?  They would have all been spectacular catches.

It will be interesting to see how much Watson's leg stiffens up at the half. I'm pretty sure he took a helmet to the knee of that TD drive.

Apparently it's his lower back (discomfort) and not his leg.  I thought the same as you, Austro

Yeah HH, they would have been great catches, but he got 2 hands on all of them and that's why he makes the big bucks.  And frankly his hands are great enough that he could/should have caught them all.  He's spoiled us that way.

So if Jake Marisnick is laid out in a full dive to try to catch a line drive, and he just missed it, you're comfortable calling it an error?

If he did it 3 times in the first 5 innings I'd probably say WTF? then too.  Those were plays we've seen Hop make countless times, it was striking to see him not make them, is all.

Texans haven't needed the help but the refs gave them 15 seconds at the end of the half.  Cost the Saints a chance to get closer for the field goal attempt.
Goin' for a bus ride.

Texans could really use an edge rusher...a Jadaveon Clowney type.

They'll be able to replace him with one of their first-round picks.

Texans have played spiritedly tonight, but their defense is just terrible.  They cannot rush the passer, and they cannot cover receivers.  That's a bad combination.

And that terrible defense is completely gassed entering the 4Q.

Especially against someone like Brees.

That secondary is a fucking sieve.  I can't imagine them holding a team to under 30 points this season.

The Chiefs game in a few weeks should be especially entertaining.

Watson is not going to last five games with that line and that head coach.

So the secondary can't cover, but they're making up for it by not tackling.

I have to assume that he didn't hear the snap. I sure hope that's the reason, because he got smoked.
