Somebody give David Culley a hand, please.
Deshaun Watson and the Texans are, seemingly, nonetheless heading for a break up in some unspecified time in the future this offseason. The group has stored issues quiet with regards to Watson’s availability, however that modified ever so barely on Thursday.
David Culley, new Texans head coach, is actually that Donald Glover gif through which he walks right into a burning room with a stack of pizzas and sees everybody else attempting to place the flames out; Culley appeared on the “Huddle&Move” podcast with Jim Trotter and Steve Wyche, and solid some doubt on Watson’s future with the group.
“He’s our beginning quarterback as of proper now,” Culley stated. “He’s our beginning quarterback. Issues occur between from time to time. We’ll see what occurs.”
The “proper now” half is especially telling, contemplating that the workforce remained dedicated to Watson being a Texan at the beginning of the 2021 season. “Proper now” means, effectively, proper now, and as Culley talked about, issues can change between from time to time.
However at a information convention later within the day, as Culley reiterated Houston’s dedication to Watson as quarterback, he intimated that Watson’s dedication to the workforce is, basically, as robust because it has ever been, and that he has no indication that Watson desires out of Houston.
David Culley simply stated he is unaware of Deshaun Watson wanting to go away the Texans, in order that’s how my day goes.

You gotta really feel for Culley: Coming into his first season as an NFL head coach at age 65 and having to elucidate away the drama between Watson and the group is a troublesome ask. And judging by his solutions, it won’t be understanding.
Watson is, reportedly, utterly carried out with the group. Somebody might need to let Culley in on that, too.
