Will the Tennessee Titans get their usual two-game slugfest with a Houston Texans team that is led by Deshaun Watson? Inquiring minds would like to know. Now, before we go any further, let’s make sure a few things are understood.
One of those things that we all can mention first is this. We’ve been inundated with more news than we can handle about Deshaun Watson and what he’s accused of. There’s no need to restate the charges or talk about how we all feel about him here.
The second point that needs to be made is this. Titan Sized never has and never will pass a sentence on anyone. Our staff’s job is to simply report the facts and move on from there. You all, as fans, have enough fuel to participate in those types of debates without any additional help from us.
For that reason, this story is about football and football only, and Mr. Watson, a man that gave the two-tone blue all that they can handle in a regular-season final a year ago, a game that the Houston Texans supposedly had nothing to prepare for has seemingly planted his flag.
Deshaun Watson is still preparing like he intends to dethrone the Tennessee Titans.
Whether or not Deshaun Watson would return to the Texans was one of the biggest stories of the offseason. So far, he’s still in Houston’s wheelhouse and would be the starting quarterback if the season started today.
As you might expect, he’s still also preparing for the season like he has a game to play on the NFL’s opening weekend. He’s been very active on social media in sharing the journey. Recently, he posted a workout video on his official Instagram account for your viewing pleasure. Take a look at this one.
Again, let’s keep the topic about football. Erase everything that’s going on with him both legally and professionally, and here’s the point. This is still one of the better signal-callers in the game. In 57 career games, if you include what he’s done in the postseason, he’s notched a record of 29-27. He’s 3-3 versus the Tennessee Titans and has thrown for over 1,746 yards with 17 touchdowns versus only five picks in those games.
All that’s been said to say this. Though it would be more pleasurable to beat the Houston Texans at full strength so there are no excuses, no Tennessee Titans fan will complain if they can get two games where they don’t have to worry about limiting one of the games more gifted young quarterbacks. Two more wins on the ledger won’t anger any Titans fans.
