Houston Texans QB Tom Savage gets preseason start vs. Carolina Panthers

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage gets preseason start vs. Carolina Panthers

"Protect the ball. Really, we want to score points". Starting does not denote "starting talent". But quite honestly, the guys he threw to are not for certain to make the team so it will interesting to see if O'Brien puts him out there over the course of the season with him throwing to the 1st team of receivers.

We see plenty more than we'd like to see every season - just ask Browns or Texans fans. "He did a good job (Monday)". In fact, there may only be about 22. James Bradberry and Daryl Worley are much sharper heading into year two and they look like two quality starters. The Panthers' Derek Anderson isn't exactly the Cadillac of quarterbacks, but he's got more in-game experience than Savage or Watson, and that should serve him well here. Houston's starting QB was Ryan Mallett, who is now in Baltimore.

The Quarterbacks: Blake Bortles vs.

Matt Kalil was a prominent signing and the team drafted Taylor Moton in the second round.

Newsom joined the 49ers in May as an undrafted free agent.

However, it is rather surprising to hear that Watson has not been offered an opportunity to take snaps with the first team offense, though this may occur in the coming weeks as the season draws nearer.

But there were times were his talent was just too much for his receivers, I saw many overthrows that he made - they looked attractive - but he's just has to get the timing down with the receivers.

But they're still the home team, and taking Newton out of a couple possessions shouldn't have taken the game off of the key number of 3. Before too long, the Chiefs may decide that Mahomes gives them the chance to win now. He started off shaky but looked a lot comfortable when the team went to a no-huddle and he was able to start moving the chains. The Bears had him and didn't keep him.

He said RUPA would support players affected by the decision. "It is a ludicrous and unfair legal initiative by the ARU. The fight from Western Australia might not yet be over, however.

"We believe this is a great development for NFL officiating overall and ultimately the quality of our game", NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said. The Niners may have nothing to lose by going with Beathard, their third-round rookie, though he's considered third-string for now. The Texans special teams was terrible all around yesterday. Where would the Seahawks be if they chose Matt Flynn over Russell Wilson just because they were paying Flynn a lot more money?

Watson played smart. He threw maybe one pass that was off, an overthrow to a tight end during his first series.

"I don't remember", Savage said via the Houston Chronicle.

"I know our offense and defense are kind of getting on each other's nerves right now", said Houston quarterback Tom Savage, in comments provided to the media by the Texans. Anderson showed his speed and strength, as well as a very good route-running ability in the Texans preseason opener.

The Quarterbacks: Josh McCown vs. Bryce Petty vs.

The next play his struggles down the field became evident with a missed pass to an open Evan Baylis.

Although Savage is in the pole position right now, he is an unproven starter who has never thrown an National Football League touchdown pass.
