We’ll have more on this later, but Tom Savage, David Quessenberry, DeAndre Hopkins, and J.J. Watt all met with the media today at NRG Stadium. There were several items of interest to come out of their pressers, but one that raised several eyebrows was Savage expressing his excitement about a “fun” and “peaceful” quarterback room in 2017.
Savage "It's going to be a fun and peaceful (QB) room." Interesting.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) April 17, 2017
Tom Savage on new quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan, very personable, bonded with him a lot last season, 'going to be a fun room, peaceful room'— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) April 17, 2017
Here’s Savage’s entire quote:
Some observers questioned whether Savage was subtly referring to the absence of former offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach George Godsey and/or former starting quarterback Brock Osweiler from the QB room this season with those remarks. Or perhaps Savage is just praising his new position coach.
What’s your reaction? Sly dig? Harmless statement made in passing? Are posts like this a prime example of everything that’s wrong with the social media world in which we live?
