In a lost season, where all hope sunk to the bottom of the sea last March, the Houston Texans needed and searched desperately for some of that vanquished hope. Davis Mills turned from unplayable to playable, hitting his floor of backup quarterback a season or two early, showing that he may become a competent starting quarterback one day. Jonathan Greenard has turned into someone who should be the third best player on a good front seven. Tavierre Thomas and Jonathan Owens may be eventual consistent starters on a NFL roster. Beating a playoff hopeful Chargers team with backups, and the backups to the backups, behind the arm of ludicrous Mills, was all everyone needed after Jacksonville in Week One being so far away. No matter what happens the rest of this season, we will always have Week 16.
On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Scott (L4blitzer) joined Matt Weston to review Houston’s surprising win over the Chargers. Topics include the future of Davis Mills, getting excited about Mills starting at quarterback in 2022, COVID changes, Brandon Staley hiding in his shell on fourth down, Lovie Smith’s defensive changes, and whether Nick Caserio actually hit on each pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Let’s start the show.
