    Offensive Rookie of the Year-Deshaun Watson
    When do you think Tom Savage gets benched for Watson? It would have to be early in the season if Watson is to win an award.

    Nobody's giving Savage a chance; I hope he proves them wrong. But on the other hand, I'm curious about how Watson would do.

    If a QB makes Offensive Rookie of the Year how about the one who's actually starting?

    I think Watson's in by week 6 at the latest. If he's not it's only because Savage is proving people wrong.

    I definitely think Watson will be starting by Week 6 because I think the Texans will be under .500 after five games. Their first 5 games are vs Jacksonville, @ Cincinnati, @ New England, vs Tennessee, vs Kansas City. I believe Houston will be 2-3 at that point in the season and behind in the division to the Titans.

    If Watson comes in when they are 2-3 and they finish 11-5 as I predicted, he'd finish the season 9-2 as a starter. If Watson comes in and they take off and win the division I could definitely see him take the Offensive Rookie of the Year. Which is what I do think will happen, hence my prediction. I could be wrong though if Savage proves to be good. He was better than Osweiler last year, though that's not much of a compliment in and of itself.

    Pretty much this, I expect Houston to be 2-3 through five games.

    Houston would have been 0-5 with Brock imo so it's a good thing they were able to find a sucker to take him

    I think the next coach to be fired is Todd Bowles, and it happens not long after Thanksgiving. I'm not exactly going out on a limb here.

    I believe they'll finish the season with him. It's pretty obvious the team is bad so what's the point bringing in an interim head coach?

    Rams and 49ers will win more games. I hope the Niners end up 2-14 so we can land Rosen or Darnold but I think we win 4-5 games.

    Rams will probably win 8-9 games. Goff will bounce back. They'll have a real offense as long as they can get the run game going. The Cards will lose more games. Especially if Palmer goes down.

    I think either the offensive or defensive Rookie of the Year will be somebody who was drafted in the second round. It was a deep draft in 2016.

    You don't think Shanahan will convince York to bring in Cousins?

    I would sincerely hope not. I much rather have them try to get Bradford IF we had to go with a veteran instead as he will also be a FA next offseason but I doubt he cares about the money we can pay him as oppose to winning a championship unlike Kirk I want the brink truck Cousins

    Since we are rebuilding, it would be best to draft a young stud to grow with the young team

    They should do well against their PAC-12 conference opponents this year.
