When asked if they wanted to see more from Watson after such a successful drive, O’Brien gave a clear answer.

The second-year signal caller, who spent his off-season recovering from a torn ACL, critiqued himself and revealed the one area he needs to improve upon after going against another NFL team for the first time in 2018.

“Just quicker decision making and just continuing to work on my accuracy,” said Watson. “Those are two areas that you can always continue to build on and get better. Like I said before, no one’s perfect. No one is going to be right on each and every time. So, just different looks and just different balls that I need to throw versus different coverages.]]> 5272928 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 23:06:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[Deshaun Watson on Texans offensive weapons: can't show up and 'make it happen']]> Deshaun Watson knows that he has a complement of weapons on this offense. Heck, even he knows that he is one of those weapons.

However, the second-year signal caller isn’t relying on how dominant the skill positions look on paper to win ballgames this season.

“We can’t look forward to the future,” Watson said. “We’ve got to put in the work because we can’t just walk on the field and make it happen.”

Looking into the past may also be prohibitive. However, it does lay out the GPS for where this offense could head in 2018. From Weeks 2-8 last year, the time frame that comprised Watson’s six starts, Houston averaged 34.7 points per game, the most in the NFL. All seven of receiver Will Fuller’s touchdowns were caught in that span]]> 5269690 Sun, 12 Aug 2018 7:36:01 EDT Texans Wire

However, that does not mean the experience was wasted.

According to coach Bill O’Brien, the process of getting warmed up to play in the ballgame was just as significant as if Watson were to play all four quarters.

“I think it was important for him to go through the whole warm-up process and preparation for the game and get out there and operate the offense,” O’Brien said. “Without having watched the film, I thought he did what we asked him to do.]]> 5268423 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:24:02 EDT Texans Wire
