New, comments

Texans fans react to that statement and more of Benoit’s takes on Houston’s rookie quarterback.

NFL: Houston Texans-OTA
Most pressure of all time?
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

As I was driving into work this morning, Mike Meltser teased an upcoming interview (which can now be found here) with MMQB’s Andy Benoit about Benoit’s assertion that Deshaun Watson faces more pressure entering the NFL as a rookie than any quarterback before him. Meltser was presumably referencing this tweet:

I’d respectfully disagree with Benoit’s assertion, but I can understand why he’d feel the way he did. Where do you stand? Is Houston’s 2017 first-round pick under the gun more than any other rookie QB ever has been?

Speaking of Benoit, he’s focusing on the AFC South at the moment, at least as it pertains to his tweets the last few days. Here are a few of his recent ruminations about your Houston Texans; feel free to give your two cents on any or all of ‘em in the space below.
